Shattered Souls - Mary Lindsey

Shattered Souls (Souls #1)Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay so the book involves ghosts, reincarnation, exorcisms, soul-sharing, and unrequited love!  What more could I want???

I did think some of the names were odd but I got past that!  Lenzi is the main character and strange things happen around her birthday, which is when she meets Alden our swoony hero!  I really liked both of their characters they were strong throughout the entire book.  Lenzi especially.  Her personality was strong willed and she was different from most wimpy heroines we usually read about!

I liked Alden, Race, and Maddi.  I hear there are more books coming out and I'm hoping we get to see more glimpses of the past as well as romance, action, a finale with Smith, and more in depth time with the other characters who all were well developed and likeable/relatable.

I seriously read this in 2 days and loved it.  I can't wait to read more.  There's action, it's gruesome, there's blood, there's romance, it has something for everyone!

Requiem - Lauren Oliver - Delirium Series

OKAY what happened here???

Requiem (Delirium, #3)Requiem by Lauren Oliver

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Okay I give this 3 stars for being completely engaging like the first two books in the series.  The cliffhanger at the end of book 2 was epic.  The writing was vivid and beautiful and exactly what one would expect with Lauren Oliver's work...

NOW... Alex is back, Julian loves Lena.  There's a lot of action and the invalids and those in the wilds are trying to survive attacks and plan one as well!  I was completely engaged throughout the entire book and didn't want to put it down.  Then the end came and I kept going back and trying to find another page....

It ended unfinished in my opinion.  I was completely disappointed with the rushed out ending.  After everything Lauren Oliver put into this book the ending was just not good.  There's no closure with Julian, Alex, Hana, Raven, Grace, nothing.  We don't even know what happened!!!

I'm so mad at myself for reading this because it felt unfinished and now I feel like I need an extra chapter like this couldn't possibly be the real ending...
