First Thought when Finished: The Pirate Bride was humorous at times but that just couldn’t save it for me. That being said, the narration made me stick with the story till the very end because Heather Wilds did an excellent job.

First Thought when Finished: Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire had interesting characters but it took 70% of the book before anything happened. I am guessing the rest of the series is probably faster at getting to the point.

Part 3 of the Series Review: Maybe spoilerish though not on purpose. I just want to be as specific as I can why Ignite Me didn’t work for me.

First Thought when Finished: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi was a little to heavy on the romance and “woe is me” angst for me to enjoy but I did enjoy books 1 and 2.

Overall Rating: DNF

Audio Rating: 4.00 (Not part of the overall rating)

Why did I DNF?: The Hunted would be loved by my dad! I kept thinking he should be the person reading/reviewing this one. I actually like Alan Jacobson’s writing and have enjoyed other books by him. Why didn’t it work for me? Holy scattered story batman. Seriously this was just too all over the place for me. About the time I would really get into the story, it would shift..
