Sapphique (Incarceron #2)

Sapphique (Incarceron, #2)Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great book. I liked it better than Incarceron, because it tells the ending of a great adventure story. The King has stopped time, and forbade the practice of science, and hidden a massive living prison in plain view. However, not everyone knows where or what the prison is. Claudia and Finn must now find a way to save not only the outside world from the Queen and the imposter Prince, but also save their loved ones from the ever vengeful, living prison of Incarceron.

Outside, Claudia insists he must be king, but he doubts even his own identity. Is he the lost prince Giles? Or are his memories no more than another construct of his imprisonment?

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1)

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you’re in the mood for a dystopian adventure then this book is for you! I honestly hated not being able to listen to the story all the way through. Unfortunately real life had to come first a few times. The story follows a few teens and how they try to survive the 5th wave. But what is the 5th wave? You’ll have to read or listen to it to find out! Happy reading my friends.

Book Summary:
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother-or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

Ring in the Dead (J.P. Beaumont #20.5)

Ring in the Dead (J.P. Beaumont, #20.5)Ring in the Dead by J.A. Jance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was great to listen to while driving home. It held my interest and the story-line was great. I did’t feel like I was missing any of the story even though it’s #20.5. The main character was killer and I loved how the author wrote it in a way that I wasn’t board with it. I’ll definitely be picking up more books by J.A. Jance. is the first book I’ve read/listened to from this author and I’m glad I did.

Invitation (Harbingers #1-4)

Invitation (Harbingers #1-4)Invitation by Bill Myers
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I give this book a 3.5. It wasn’t bad and the story-line was good. I like how each short story was different but with the same characters. I think some of the characters uniqueness got lost in translation and the story line got a bit jumbled, which is understandable with 4 different authors. However, if you like paranormal thrillers this is the book for you.

Small Wars (Jack Reacher #19.5)

Small Wars (Jack Reacher, #19.5)Small Wars by Lee Child
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love being able to start and finish a book while I have my morning coffee. Jack Reacher has always been an amazing character and I like the adventures he goes on. This adventure touched a little too close to home for him. If you’re looking for a short, fast paced, story then this is a book for you!

Bound Together (Sea Haven/Sisters of the Heart, #6)

Bound Together (Sea Haven/Sisters of the Heart, #6)Bound Together by Christine Feehan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy WOW!! This story blew my socks off! I didn’t want to put it down, even through some of the rough parts. And I mean there was just some parts that were hard to read. This story follows Viktor who is the leader of a motorcycle club and his desire to get back to his wife Blythe. However, being undercover for 5 years to bring down a pedophile ring has left it’s mark on him and his fellow brother and sisters. Blythe on the other hand, has felt abandon by Viktor because he left without a goodbye. She has gone through hardships too while he was away. I love how the story takes place is one of my favorite areas which is the Fort Bragg, Ca. The descriptions of the places are spot on and makes you feel like you’re actually there with the characters. I don’t want to say too much since I don’t want to give spoilers away. All I can say is that this book is full of action, and won’t disappoint!
