Super Short Reviews (11)

Have you entered my Reading Road Trip giveaway yet?

Welcome to my Super Short Reviews feature. With my life being the chaotic, hectic mess it is, I'm finding it difficult to keep up with my reviews. Hence, the Super Short Review, which is basically what it says--a couple lines about some of my recent reads. All links will lead to Goodreads.

My Life in Black and White by Natasha Friend: Read for 2012 Standalone Challenge. This was an interesting read about a beautiful girl at the top of the social ladder who falls hard after a car accident leaves her face permanently disfigured. I felt that forgiveness was given far too quickly, but I am not that quick to forgive, so that might just be my perception. This book addresses the question of what happens to the person who is judged based solely on their looks, when their looks are drastically changed? Borrowed from the library.

A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger: Read for 2012 Standalone Challenge. I felt this was a fun summer read, perfect for the beach. Like Kody's previous works, sex (either the actual act, or talking about the act) and drinking are everyday occurrences in this novel, so if reading about those things bother you, Kody is probably not your girl. But I felt this was a realistic, fun novel--although Kody's debut novel, The DUFF, remains my favorite of hers. Borrowed from library.

Infinity (Numbers #3) by Rachel Ward: I have heard ZERO about this trilogy, and I can't imagine why. I found the premise to be exceptionally interesting--what would life be like if you looked at people and saw their death dates?--and I thought the books were suspenseful and fast reads. Why no one else likes them, I don't know. Because I don't want to ruin the trilogy for anyone who hasn't read it, let me just say that it came to a satisfying conclusion. If you haven't checked out this trilogy (Numbers and Chaos are books 1 & 2), I obviously think you should. Borrowed from library.

Enjoy your reading!
