Still Sucks To Be Me by Kimberly Pauley


Here’s a little sneak peek for you from the back copy of the book… WARNING! If you haven’t finished the first book yet, I highly advise you to NOT read any of the following!! You *can* read the second book without having read the first one, but hey, why not read both?

Why It Still Sucks to Be Me

•My parents and the stupid Vampire Council are still ruining my life unlife? death (ugh, whatever).
•Not only did they make me fake my death and funeral (I didn’t even get to go!), but I had to leave behind my BFF Serena and move. Really far away.
•Meanwhile my boyfriend George is off “reconnecting with his parents” in Brazil. Land of beaches, bikini babes, and the biggest party in the world. He’s probably going “Mina, who?”
•Grady asked me to Homecoming and won’t take no for an answer.
•Did I mention cute but oh-so-complicated Cameron, the only other bloodsucking teen in town? That’s because I’m trying not to think about him, thank you very much.
•And ugh, Raven. Is she seriously stalking Serena?
•But the absolute worst thing is that here I am, some all-powerful (ha), all-knowing (yeah, right), in-control (totally not) vampire and my parents still get to dictate everything I do.

I wasn't as excited about this book as I was with the first one. It was a little too similar to the first one for my liking. I did enjoy the book though but it took a while to finish it because I felt like the main character, Mina was a bit whiny. Fine, your a vampire now and your boyfriend's in another countery, but seriously get over yourself! That's what I felt like saying pretty much throughout the entire book! lol If there is another book in this series, I will read it because the storyline is pretty interesting, but it probably won't be going on my keeper shelf.

Review - Hold Me If You Can (Soulfire, Book 3) by Stephanie Rowe

HE IS HER DARK AND GLORIOUS PRIZE... — Stephanie Rowe is an acclaimed author whose high-octane romances are attracting a growing readership.  The third in a paranormal romance series packed with danger, sensuality and clever twists features Nigel Aquarian, a warrior with an artistic bent, and Natalie Fleming, a chocolatier who has a new lease on life.  But her freedom comes with a dangerous gift she doesn't want.

Nigel and his fellow warriors have only just escaped imprisonment when an even worse threat emerges.  Natalie is the only woman who can help Nigel -- but she's also the one most likely to bring him down.


My Thoughts:

This was an OK book.  It wasn't awesome but it wasn't horrible.  The book took me a while to finish, a few months.  I just couldn't get into the book, but I really wanted to finish it.  

I really enjoy Stephanie Rowe's books.  They are funny and always have interesting topics.  This is the second series I've read by this author and while I liked the first series better (The Immortally Sexy Series), the first few books in this series weren't bad.  

This book was about Nigel, a sexy warrior who enjoys drawing.  The heroine is Natalie, a chocolate shop owner.  The secondary characters are interesting as well.  This sounds like a good storyline right?  The book was a bit slow in parts and there was just too much silliness.  I really do enjoy Stephanie Rowe's books though so I'm still looking forward to her next book.
