Mini Reviews (II)

I've decided to try a new thing on my blog. I have only reviewed vampire books so far, and I want to keep it that way. BUT I feel bad about not sharing my thoughts about non-vampire books I've won in contests, or great books that I've borrowed from the library. That's why I'm going to do posts like this one every once in a while, so I can share some thoughts on non-vampire related books I've read recently. Hope you'll enjoy my mini reviews :)

How To Hook a Hottie by Tina Ferraro
A cute and fun read - perfect for a day at the beach! This is my least favorite Tina Ferraro book; I like Top Ten Uses For an Unworn Prom Dress and The ABCs of Kissing Boys better, but it's still a good book. Be sure to check out Tina's books if you haven't already - they're fun and fast reads!

Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
I'm a big fan of Kinsella's stand-alone books (much better than the Shopaholic series), and this book is just as good as it's antecedents. This book is full of both laughs and tears, and of course romance. I love the relationship that develops between Lara, the main character, and her great-aunt Sadie, and I really liked how this book ended, thought I have to admit that I shed a few tears. . .
Another great chic-lit book by Sophie Kinsella!

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
It took me months to finish this book. I'm usually a fast reader, but this book moved too slow for me. Sure, the love story was cute, but I didn't feel much for the characters, and the plot was too tedious to grab me. This book did get a bit better in the end though, but I still think that the plot moved to slow, and that the characters were too dull ad unilateral.

Yay! I love that you will share your thoughts on non vampire books - awesome!
I felt exactly the same way as you did about Twenties Girl, but totally differently about Shiver. I can't believe you didn't love it!

I love your mini reviews =) I think I have to try one of Kinsella's stand alone novels. I read the first book in the Shopaholic series and I did NOT like it LOL.

I'm reading Shiver right now and I have to say that I've fallen in love so far.

Oh no, now I am scared to begin reading Shiver! :)

I have yet to read stand-alone books by Sophie Kinsella, but they all sound fabulous!

I'm glad I'm not the only person who didn't fall in love with Shiver! It was okay, I guess, but I MUCH prefer Maggie Stiefvater's faerie novels, Ballad being my personal favorite.

I love mini-reviews :)
agree with you about Shiver, not my cup of tea.
