September 2008 Wrap-Up

Here’s my end of the month wrap-up:

  1. Stephanie Meyer, New Moon –> This one was not as good as the first one, but I still really enjoyed it. My biggest gripe was that Bella was so disgustingly whiny it was awful!! 4.5/5
  2. Stephen King, The Shining –> This was a re-read, reading it the first time while I was in high school. I definitely liked it a lot better the first time around, but I still enjoyed it. 3.5/5
  3. Kevin O’Brien, One Last Scream –> Oh my goodness, I can’t possibly say enough good things about this book – I absolutely LOVED it!!! 5/5
  4. John Saul, Black Creek Crossing –> I was really disappointed in this book. I had myself all geared up for a great strong ending and it was horrible, just plain awful! This is the first time I have read Saul, but it definitely wasn’t a positive introduction for me … I’m not sure if it was this particular book or Saul…. 3/5
  5. Sandra Brown, The Witness –> This one started a little bit slow, but it quickly picked up pace. And the ending came completely out of left field! But I enjoyed this one a lot! 4/5
  6. Chelsea Cain, Heartsick –> I wanted to love this book so much because of all the great things I heard about it, but overall I was left a little deflated, but I still enjoyed it, just not as much as I had hoped I would. 4/5
