Bloodlines - Richelle Mead September, 2011 - Abandoned 1/3 of the way through. I know, I know. I should probably have read more before abandoning it, but it was torture. SOOOOO incredibly boring and predictable. I love VA (have read that series 3 times) and I wanted to love Bloodlines, but I just couldn't. Sydney is a sad, boring, wet blanket. Jill is annoying and lacking her VA spunk. Adrian is trying too hard. Eddie is ridiculously overbearing and douche-y. Such a disappointment. I moved on to better books. I see fairly good reviews, so I'll eventually come back to it and try to finish it, because I want to keep reading about the VA world, but I need to amp myself up. Sigh. Maybe I'll skim though it. January 2012 - Awful. Just awful. Shocked at how bad this book is. I gave it 2 stars only because the audio version was easier to swallow and I actually finished it (unhappily, but to the last word), as opposed to the print version that I dnf'd last year.Shall review this lata.
