Ceaseless - Abbi Glines - Existence Trilogy

Ceaseless (Existence Trilogy, #3)Ceaseless by Abbi Glines

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pagan is back with no memories of Dank, Leif, Gee, or most of her senior year of high school.  Her soul's mate from book two, Jay is to make an attempt at her heart and Dank will as well and who she chooses will be what decides if she will regain her old memories or not.  Dank is the ultimate swoon worthy guy.  He takes such good care of Pagan and I think every girl wants a little Death in her life. 

Jay is kind of a jerk right off so you don't really feel that spark or connection with him and Pagan is very matter of fact and I like that about her personality.  Who will she choose and will she regain her memories?

Words to the wise, this book has much more profanity than the others and a lot of sex.  Not just Pagan but all the characters and they talk about it a lot too.  It's not for the younger readers.

The book is a page turner and if you are a fan of the series you wont be able to put it down.  I read it in a single sitting with doesn't happen often.

So I love Abbi Glines work and was going to dock this one point due to the spelling errors in the beginning.  I read the few pages about the author and such at the end and she noted that she didn't have the book finished and ready for publication but a week til it's release.  The errors bothered me but after reading the book in it's entirety I decided not to dock it anything.

Grave Mercy - His Fair Assassin - Robin LaFevers

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is 565 pages!  With that much book typically there's a lot of fluff and filler, I did get somewhat bored around 40% into the book and skimmed a bit but not too much, the beginning and the last half of this book are remarkable.  There's not a lot of filler, it's all scenery, action, descriptions, narrative, etc.  There's a lot going on.

The book is about Ismae who is one of death's daughters and goes to a convent of assassin nuns after an unfortunate arranged marriage.  She is trained in the arts of death and poisons as well as seduction and current events.  She goes on missions to kill people and ultimately gets an undercover job for the duchess.  Her love interest is Gavriel Duval (this book isn't a romance) and he's quite charming.

This is a historical book and I like most timepieces.  This one didn't disappoint there was a lot going on and the plot was unique and original, very refreshing.  I do look forward to reading the next one which is about Sybella and I hope the injured knight in need is Beast.

Pushing the Limits - Katie McGarry

WOW... amazing read.  This book had amazing reviews which is why I downloaded it and I must say it did not disappoint.

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book draws you in immediately and grips you with a story of a girl and boy with real problems.  I laughed, I cried, I connected.  I can't say a book has done that to me in a long time.

Echo Emerson is the leading lady who used to be popular and has an incident that left her with scars all over her body and she can't even remember what happened.  Noah is the boy who used to be popular until his parents died and he was left a warden of the state as well as his two younger brothers. 

This book touches on the heart and brings a sense of realism to the characters.  I felt so much for Echo and Noah in their own ways.  I fell in love with this story and was so sad to see it end it was one of those books that you can't put down.  I'm glad that the author decided to write other books on the characters in this one.  I can't wait to read Beth's story.

Fifty Shades Freed - EL James

An end to the story...

Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades, #3)Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My rating is right down the middle, it wasn't my favorite or least favorite book.  The special at the end after the book of Christian's POV was probably the best part. 

This book takes place right where book 2 leaves off.  This book has lots of glimpsing in time.  There's way less of the kinky stuff in this book.  So if you are looking for that, you wont find it here.  EL James has written mostly a conversational book about Anastasia it includes a lot of action and suspense with Jack Hyde and his revenge.  You see Christian's past as a child as well as learn more about Mrs. Robinson.  There's also an epilogue on Anastasia's life. 

It's a perfect ending to the trilogy and you wont be left wondering what happened to Anastasia.
