Is it just me?

I've been reading again. SLOOOOOOOOOOWLY. A few books have clicked, a few have not.

Covet by J.R. Ward
It had so many elements I like. At first I thought it would suck me in the way the BDB did in the beginning. I love the concept: fallen angels, good vs evil, saving seven souls, true love. The book held up, right up until the end. I don't know. I guess I felt like there was so much build up, the resolution was sort of anticlimactic. I wanted more.


Now I am reading Written on Your Skin by Meredith Duran. I have absolutely loved her previous novels. This one... not so much. The writing is good. The story is interesting. I just can't connect to the characters. There is so much deception that you almost can't tell who they truly are. I don't understand the characters, so I can't connect to them. When I can't connect to the characters I have a hard time stying with the book. I know I need to power through. If her track record holds strong, I will end up loving it. Right now, though, I'm just not feeling it.

Back to crocheting, I guess. (Gotta get these Christmas gift finished!!!)

I completely agree about the Duran. While I had uber-love for parts of WOYS the rest was just good. Does that make sense? lol

Hello stranger! ;P

I'm skipping Ward's spin off series. I did finally buy Rehv's story though since it finally came out in paperback a week or two ago. I feel like the last PNR reader on the planet to read it. LOL.

I ended up enjoying WOYS more than I expected to after reading the first few chapters. It took a while for me to feel passionately about them belonging together, but when I got it... I really loved it. I still love Duke of Shadows the best of her works.
