Anne's IntermittentroPolis

I prefer to keep my reviews short but I can't guarantee them to be sweet. I don't mind discussing, analyzing, or raving but I'm just an inherently lazy writer/reviewer.

Currently reading

The Turn of the Screw
Henry James, Philip Horne, David Bromwich
Across a Star-Swept Sea
Diana Peterfreund
The Dream Thieves
Maggie Stiefvater
The Awakening - Kelley Armstrong This one is decidedly better than The Summoning. Half the time, I wasn't even sure if the group was making progress towards the goal; oh one more thing, what IS the goal anyways? Their answer is so vague, to demolish Edison Group? Oh you're cool, the lines are being drawn. I just dislike the lack of action and the slowness of the plot. It was a quick read and Chloe was an okay character except she's pretty unreliable sometimes. She's just another version of a powerful, inexperienced heroine if you ask me. If Derek was the direct the story, then maybe readers will have a better understanding of what's going on and jot just ambiguous sentences filled with movie scenarios of what-ifs. With my issues about the book stated clearly, I'm off to read The Reckoning now.
