What I’m Reading:
So far I really like this, though it is a lot darker than I had anticipated. I suppose I should have been tipped off by the word siren. The love interest seems really sweet and a bit goofy in a good way. I’m anxious to see where this story leads!
What I recently read:
The first half of this book was amazing. I loved Grey and Skyler so much. But the second half took a turn into snooze-ville. I stopped caring whether Grey and Skyler ended up together. The only secondary character I loved was Garrett; he was hilarious and perceptive as crap. Beth was cool but still kinda meh. Hopefully, I’ll like Mia more when I read Boomerang, the first book in this trilogy which follows her story. I hated Brooks and Kaitlin and Skyler’s dad. It was an enjoyable read and all, but I disliked how everything came together at the end in this little too-neat package.
Holy crap. This book. I absolutely LOVED it! I thought Storm was good, but Spark knocked it out of the park. Gabriel and Layne were both fantastic, enjoyable, well-developed characters. There were no stupid love triangles, just the natural progression of two people getting to know one another and growing to care for one another. Both characters had equally compelling stories, pasts, things to deal with in their lives, and plenty of mystery. The descriptions were top-notch. The smells, the sensations, the little details of fire and smoke. It was gorgeous. This book has everything I love in a book. I never ever find book characters that I love this much. They were so realistic and wonderful and I was with them the whole way. I adored Gabriel and Layne and her little brother, Simon. The fact that Simon is deaf was handled so well and I loved that he was good at basketball and oh my gosh I could gush about this book for hours.
What I’ll probably read next:
Since Spark was so good, I am definitely going to read the third book in the elemental series, Spirit, which follows Hunter. Also I peeked at the first page. Best first sentence ever: “Hunter Garrity awoke to the click of a gun.”
