Books read... in December

1. Crash Into Me 3/5
Didn't feel any connection with the book and found it really predictable.

2. Crossed 5/5
Definitely a great addition to the series. I loved how Ky and Cassia are each on a journey together, but are going in opposite directions. I wish there had been more about Xander. I feel like Cassia is leaning more towards Xander at the moment, which is something that I like (not a Ky fan). Ready for the next one!

3. Split 5/5
Loved this. It started a bit slow, but really really picked up. Jace was an amazingly interesting character. His brother was a little annoying. Great storyline, and a pretty good ending.

4. Girls in Pants, The Third Summer of the Sisterhood 4/5
Great addition to the series. I did have a problem with the fact that the characters haven't really changed much from the second book. I felt that the action was very slow until the end, and everything was a bit predictable. But sometimes predictability is nice. Can't wait to read the last 2!

5. The Walking Dead Book Two 4/5
Great addition to the series. I loved the drama in this one and the way the characters are evolving and changing (or in some cases devolving). The crazy action was pretty intense. I felt like some one died every few pages and they probably did. The writing was good, but sometimes the characters get a bit "speechy" where they are making these huge statements that last forever and doesn't sound like natural conversation. I also had a bit of a problem with the artwork. I feel like it is getting harder to separate some of the characters. Most of the male characters looked very alike. Of course now there are so few left that it is getting a bit easier. And everybody killing themselves? Seriously. They find a pretty decent place to live and people want to kill themselves? Over somebody cheating or just because? Really?! Very strange behavior.
Book three should definitely be interesting and (SPOILER) I think by now we all know that Lori's baby is definitely Shane's. I mean come on!

6. The Walking Dead Book Three 5/5
Great collection again! This story takes a weird turn this time. A few people find another colony set up but find that it is not what they hoped it would be. Lots of crazy crazy shiz goes down. This book was definitely more graphic than the ones before it. Lots of more mature plot lines. I think the showdown between Michonne and the Gov went a bit too far and I was actually really grossed out. Glad to see some action about to happen at the end. We can expect a showdown coming soon, with plenty of death and such. Ready for Lori to have Shane's baby, cause hasn't she been pregnant long enough? And very excited about Glenn and Maggie.
Book four? Please come in soon!

7. Forever in Blue, The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood 4/5
Ok so this one was better than the third one to me. All the characters went through such a transformation. Carmen lost herself, Lena grew up, Tibby pulled back into herself, and Bee finally learned her lesson. In the end, the loss of something very important to them brought them back together. Very good book and I am hoping the last one is just as good.
