Do It In 140: Tweet-Short Reviews (19)

18052900Queen of Dark Things (Dreams and Shadows #2) C. Robert Cargill

(Fantasy, hardcover, 432 pages; published May 13, 2014 by Harper Voyager; source: publisher)

Highly enjoyed the first book, less so with this one due to a fragmented plot. Still rooting for MC! Strong worldbuilding and descriptions. 3 stars.

12578370Perfect Lies (Mind Games #2) by Kiersten White

(YA Paranormal, hardcover, 232 pages; published February 18, 2014 by HarperTeen; source: publisher)

While I didn’t love the constantly shifting times via the sisters’ POVs, I still enjoyed watching the sisters grow and fall in love. 3 stars

21943349The Younger Gods (Younger Gods #1) by Michael R. Underwood

(Urban Fantasy, ebook, 280 pages; published October 13, 2014 by Pocket Star; source: publisher)

Highly enjoy Underwood’s Geekomancy series; this one has the same whimsy including a fish-out-of-water in NYC (which I appreciated). Crazy-fast pace. 3 1/2 stars.

22668749Dead Eye (Mutant Files #1) by William C. Dietz

(Urban Fantasy, mass market paperback, 304 pages; published January 27, 2015 by Ace; source: publisher)

Overwhelmed by this book. Too many characters, plotlines, information and POVs. As someone who adores the UF genre, this was terribly disappointing. 2 stars.

16130559Bones of the Lost (Temperance Brennan #16) by Kathy Reichs

(Mystery, hardcover, 324 pages; published August 27, 2013 by Scribner; source: publisher)

I like the TV show better than the books these days. *gasp* Hard to keep a series fresh after 16 books. Weak mystery, pedantic protagonist (yay alliteration!). 2 1/2 stars.

  1. Look at you with your alliteration Mary! Well done 🙂 I’ve somehow only heard of Perfect Lies, the rest are new to me (except for the BONES series, I do love that show!) which makes me feel super out of the loop. Sorry none of these really blew you away though!
