A Satisfying Ending: End of Days by Susan Ee Review

You know that feeling when you finish a series but it was published a long time ago so no one’s talking about it now? That’s exactly how I feel right now. 😦

Let me begin by saying that overall, I like this series. Still, I must admit that this is one of those series where none of the sequels could ever measure up to the first.

Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed this for a lot of reasons.

Suffered from Middle Book Syndrome: World After by Susan Ee

Although this was good, it just wasn’t good as the first. Unfortunately, as with a lot of series, it suffered from what we know as middle book syndrome. This generally refers to an author’s second book not quite living up to their first, particularly if it’s part of a series.

I think part of the major reason why I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first is that Raffe was barely in it. The witty banter between him and Penryn was a major factor that made the previous book more fun. I spent most of the time reading this book just waiting for him to come.

Not Your Usual Angel Romance: Angelfall by Susan Ee Review

If I didn’t buy this book from Big Bad Wolf, I probably would have never read it. I would have no idea what a great thing I would be missing.

To be honest, I have a slight prejudice against books about angels. I’ve always assumed it would be all about the forbidden romance between humans and heavenly beings. I tried reading Hush, Hush but I just wasn’t into it. The other popular series also had mixed reviews so I didn’t even bother. I was in my vampire romance phase back then and I wasn’t ready to move on yet. But even when angel books became so popular, I haven’t heard of Angelfall. Six whole years of not knowing an awesome series like this exists.

Review: Remembrance (The Mediator #7)

Meg Cabot has been one of my favorite authors and her Princess Diaries and The Mediator series are one of my favorites. Not to mention her other books that I really liked, which, if I will list them all will take a while.

So naturally, I was also a little nervous and skeptical before reading this. What if it’s not as good as I expected? What if I grew up and the characters I have always loved before weren’t so cool anymore?

I guess I shouldn’t have worried too much. I loved every bit of this book.
