Sticky Note Quotes

Hi I'm Caitlin a refuge from GR due to its censoring of reviewers. I'm still getting use to the site and hope to get back into the rhythm of writing reviews for all I'm reading. Here is what stars mean to me: 1- Was horrible, no one should read it 2- Didn't click with me but someone else may enjoy or didn't live up to expectations 3- I enjoyed it, nothing special(most books) 4- Very good but the there was still enough flaws to prevent me from falling in love with it 5- I loved it, it made me think and feel strong emotions, very few flaws
Replication: The Jason Experiment - Jill Williamson Lets start by saying that this is a good book, it makes you think on the subject of cloning and reads well....but there is one little problem, religion. I have no problem with religion in most cases, but I don't like it shoved down my throat. And I wasn't really expecting it, their is one mention of god in the summery but most books that involve God are pretty light on it. But Abby is majorly religious constantly is mentioning it and using it as a reason for everything. So when she meets Martyr she (of course) makes him majorly religious in only a few days and her father who doesn't believe in God suddenly starts to believe during the course of the book.

So not my cup of tea, but not a bad book at all. But if you like religious books this might be yours.

I received this book through the Goodreads Firstreads Program.
Flowers in the Attic - V.C. Andrews I'll try to write a full review later but I just need to say this, I really want to kill the mother.
Crimson Groves - Ashley Robertson Let's start off by saying that I enjoyed this book, it was a fun read but nothing special. To start it's very similar to the other zillion vampire novels out there. We have an evil vampire who turned a beautiful woman for his own selfish reasons and a women who really doesn't want to be a vampire.

Also this vampires really don't have anything special about them, they burn in sunlight and some have special powers, but there isn't an cool back story (Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz) or a interesting society (Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead) or anything else that would really draw me in.

So in all a nice vampire book but nothing to make it special.

Party Weekend - Francine Pascal, Kate William
The Big Night - Francine Pascal, Kate William
The Unicorn Girl - M.L. LeGette

Let me start by saying that this wasn't what I expected. The cover (not cover shown, I'll try to fix that) left me thinking that this would have been a book I would have enjoyed in my pre-teens, which isn't a bad thing but I've had a lot of trouble relating to books like that lately. But this one wasn't like that. It actual was cute and had a few twists that I didn't see coming.

Genesis - Bernard Beckett I'm not sure how to explain what I feel for this book. It takes place in just a few hours time and what you learn about the world is through story. It's a good book, just be ready to be suprised at the ending and know that the cover tells you a lot more then you think.
The Merchant's Daughter - Melanie Dickerson I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book. Was it a Beauty and the Beast retelling? A Historical Romance? or what? But it kind of a little bit of all of the above. It's not a Beauty and the Beast retelling in the classic way, no magic or curses. But of the damaged man, young beauty type. It's a nice story with a strong focus on God and beliefs. It was good but really didn't stand out of the crowd and the characters need a little more depth. But if you enjoy books about God and love stories this might be your cup of tea.

I recived this book through the Goodreads Firstreads program and this review can alse be seen on my book blog:
Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You find and Keep love - Amir Levine, Rachel Heller This book was interesting and it changes the way you look at people. Like that you guy you liked who pushed you away? He is the avoidant type. Or that girl who scares all her boyfriends away by being so clingy? She's the anxious type. It shows you in very easy to follow scenarios all three attachment types anxious, secure or avoidant and how they can relate to the people you know. My problem with this book was the fact that after awhile the scenarios got repetitive and boring. Also the fact that they wanted you to write in the book to take the tests to determine you're type and I'm sorry I can't write in books, you could grab paper and do the tests but I ussally don't have paper with me while reading. So over all a pretty good book that allows you to examine the relationships around you.

I received this book through Goodread's Firstreads program.
Wolf: The Journey Home - Asta Bowen This isn't a happy story so if your looking for a touchy, feely book about wolves skip this one. Unlike Julie of the Wolves in which most of the wolves have a happy ending almost none of these wolves do. Our wolf family gets shot, injured, hit by cars, starves to death, and put down for preying on livestock. But some how this book is still good. We bond with our wolves, we cheer when they make a kill, and we want to cry when something happens to one of them. So if you are welling to deal with all that and more this is the wolf book for you.
Deadline - Mira Grant What the heck!!
I Who Have Never Known Men - Ros Schwartz, Jacqueline Harpman This one is weird and very depressing, we never get answers to the questions asked. But some how this book pulls it off. But it leaves you thinking and wondering and I'm not sure if I will ever get it out of my head.
Epic Fail - Claire LaZebnik A cute, predictable story.
The Mindful Carnivore: A Vegetarian's Hunt for Sustenance - Tovar Cerulli Honesty I don't know how to feel about this book. Some parts had a really good flow and brought up interesting ideas, in others it repeated its self and at times you didn't realize what was happening until afterwords because of the weird way it was worded.

So it's a good idea for a book and some parts work really well, but the majority I just wanted to skip and really wish where cut out or redone.

Received from NetGallary.
Lovetorn - Kavita Daswani I'm don't honestly know what to feel about this book. First off our main character is likable but but doesn't always click with her self, if that makes any sense. She makes so decisions that I can't see a person like her making. Don't get me wrong is was a good book with a good story to tell, but along with Shalini (our main character) odd actions the book is just to short.If the book was a few chapters longer or had an epilogue I felt that all these little lose ends could be dealt with and we could have found out what her final decision was.

Over all a pretty good book, but need a little something more.

I got this book through the Goodreads Firstreads program.
New Moon Outtakes - If Jacob Didn't Break the Rules - Stephenie Meyer Honestly this is one of my favorites of the Twilight/New Moon outtakes/short stories. It's cute and funny and answers one of your what ifs.
