Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick was exciting and Patch had me smitten. I couldn't wait for the next one. Sadly, the characters lost their zeal and I started saying mean things to Nora.
Evermore by Allyson Noel hit the angsty forbidden love in a big way. Oh, I loved this book. I made it through the first three and the love was still forbidden and angsty! We had a painful triangle and a best friend I hated. I couldn't pick up the next book, but the first one remains a favorite.
House of Night lost me with Chosen, book 3. I was so upset about a particular scene with a faculty member that I packed them up and gave them back to my sister. I still want to hit the book a couple more times. Grrh, I did not like that storyline at all and it wasn't needed. And it wasn't handled well. Nope.
Evernight by Claudia Grey is awesome. I loved the surprises and the developing romance between opposing sides. I thought the storytelling was fantastic. Then the second took a few detours that veered the story offtrack for my liking.
Sookie! Oh goodness, I stopped at the hot pink book, 11 maybe? This one I might go back to despite the very mixed reviews on the final installment. So I thought I could pretend the series ended with the person I chose for our mind-reading barmaid, but delusions are tricky when you're trying to create them on purpose. I know the freaking truth!
