THE BOOK(S) I COMMITTED TO READ:
I finally finished reading them. Yay! Actually, I finished Shattered first (review here) and read the second book in the Dream Realms trilogy before I finished Juliet Immortal. I liked the two books well enough though at first I had Twilight alert, Twilight alert ringing in my head in the first two chapters of Shattered but it got better and the alarms went down. But I got another set of ringing bells in Destined, the second book - Blue Bloods and the Mortal Instruments. I haven't read the third book yet since I only have the first part and still yet to have Ascension but despite the bells, I would read the conclusion because I want to know what happened.
Juliet Immortal... I was giggling all night last night because of lines like this: “And I know you make me think the hell I’ve been through was worth it … if it’s what made me recognize heaven when it jumped into my car.” I was afraid I was going to get another WTF ending but... I think I'll let everything out in my review. I'm still thinking about the best way to write about my feelings with regards to the story. I also plan on making a diagram since I was cross-referencing who who-was-who and who-did-what. Anyway, I give it a four out of five apples.
THE BOOK I COMMIT TO READ THIS WEEK:
The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.
