The Book Ends: May 2013

My month link-up that where I talk about all the books that I have read this month. 

May 2013

Goodreads Summary:  Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. What — or who — will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin? For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He's being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn't by Lena - and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself — forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn't know why, and most days he's too afraid to ask.

My Thoughts:  It was a little haunting and of course...
A CLEFT HANGER!!! Oh how I hate. Lucky me I have the fourth book.
Rating:  2 stars 

Goodreads Summary: Ethan awakes after the chilling events of the Eighteenth Moon, he has only one goal: to find a way to return to Lena and the ones he loves. Back in Gatlin, Lena is making her own bargains for Ethan's return, vowing to do whatever it takes -- even if that means trusting old enemies or risking the lives of the family and friends Ethan left to protect. Worlds apart, Ethan and Lena must once again work together to rewrite their fate, in this stunning finale to the Beautiful Creatures series.

My Thoughts: I really liked the series but I was disappointed in the last book. It didn't seem worth it after readig three other books. You really could have skipped 1 or even 2. Find out why on GoodReads.

Rate: 2  Stars.

Goodreads Summary: A sweeping story told in letters, spanning two continents and two world wars, Jessica Brockmole’s atmospheric debut novel captures the indelible ways that people fall in love, and celebrates the power of the written word to stir the heart.

My Thoughts: **I received this from Goodreads contest.
To be honest, it's not my kind of book. It is a good read and I would recommend this to someone if it was in their realm of books.

Rate: 5  Stars. (I rated it a 3 on goodreads but I realized how much I liked this. It plays in my head alot)

Goodreads Summary: In this Christian allegory, sixteen-year-old Archibald Zwick is vacationing with his family on a remote island in the Bermuda archipelago.Taking his Kayak out, he is caught in freak storm. Suddenly, he comes upon a mysterious city inhabited by a strange but friendly people.

My Thoughts: **I received this book in thanks to the Author.*
I was surprised how good this book is. It was a little more detailed then I could handle but there was pictures so it really helped. I still play it over and over in my head. I am working my way through the workbook too.  If you get a chance, read it.
Rate: 4  Stars.
