Ride with Me by Ruthie Knox

What a sweet book!!! 
Loved it so much!
simply a pleasure to read!
Lexi and Tom seems like the total opposite, seems like there is not chance for them to even get along, yet there is more to both of them that meets (each other's) eye. They are exactly what the right "doctor" could recommend for each other.

The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires (Half Moon Hollow 1) by Molly Harper

Took me a day to read this one. 
It's not one of these books you scream "master piece" when you finish reading it. more like you finish it with a smile and a feeling of closure. 
Well written, smart, funny, sweet. 
Great read for a day-off.
I loved the characters, their interaction/relationship with each other. Irish and Gigi - real sisters in every definition - fighting, laughing, embarrassing each other. The relationship of Iris and Cal and the time it took for them to build that relationship. The changes in Cal toward Iris and after that toward Gigi.

The Eternity Cure (Dawn of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa

I had bigger hopes for this one.
As I said about the 1st book "The Immortal Rules" and the prequel novella "'Till The World Ends". I'm NOT a fan of apocalyptic books (or movies for that manner..), I AM a big fan of vampire books.
This one doesn't "do it" for me. 
Don't get me wrong there is A LOT of action going on. I kept reading and reading this book, finding I don't want to put it down, want to see what's going on.

'Til The World Ends (Dawn of Eden #0.5) by Julie Kagawa

A nice novel. I read this one after reading the first book in the series. 
As I wrote in my review to the first book - I'm NOT a fan of apocalyptic books and this one is sort of an explanation (at least in part) of what happened before the first book. 
It seems that we encounter the kin of a character in the first book. But it doesn't feel "significant". Well, it IS a side story that doesn't matter to the main plot.

The Immortal Rules (Dawn of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa

I'm not the kind to read "apocalyptic" books. so I guess that's why I'm not a big fan of this book.
The book itself was interesting and I like the characters.
I'm a huge vampire books fanatic but this one isn't one of my favorites.
I've heard the next one is amazing and this one is basically an "introduction" to the story / world. So, I'll see how it goes :)

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Wow, one of the WORST books I have EVER read..
In one word - BORING
In too many words - "Water for Elephants"

I feel it was impossible to even like the main character. He was described so "mechanical", his love interest is also not that interesting, the Elephant which is SO relevant to the story doesn't even appear in the first (BORING!) third of the book and only after about half of the book SOMETHING actually happens.

I Do... or Die by Donna Cummings

Real funny and witty! 
I loved the relationship between Ryan and Shelby and the way it progressed during the book. their witty exchanges and Shelby's honest and "naughty" POV made this book fun and easy. 
A sweet book to breeze through in a day or two and put it down with a smile (after laughing your ass of half of the book :D).
