18. Seduced by Magic (Magic #2) by Cheyenne McCray
Comment: not bad
17. Storm of Visions (Chosen Ones #1) by Cristina Dodd
Comment: was ok the ending was kind of "That's all?" for me, would like to continue though
16. Working for the Devil (Dante Valentine #1) by Lilith Saintcrow
Comment: it was ok, kind of depressing, has the potential to be one of those nitty painful series
15. Forever...: A Novel of Good And Evil, Love And Hope (Forever Trilogy#1) by Jude Deveraux
Comment:really liked the book, read the excerpts on the next two but might prefer this one as a standalone.
14. The Sword (Sons of Destiny #1) by Jean Johnson
Comment:It was ok but it felt a little amateurish for me ala first KMM
13. White Lies (Arcane Society#2) by Jayne Ann Krentz
Rating: B
Comment: As always JAK is such a comfort and easy read. I always have a desire to read her old books everytime I read her. Would have given it higher but despite enjoying it, it tended to become too technical at some parts, and I read Second Sight a good 6 months before I think, so it was hard to recall any of the things that the history of Arcnae Society and J&J that it alluded to. Despite that, couldnt wait to read the next one.
12. Sizzle and Burn (Arcane Society#3) by Jayne Ann Krentz
Rating: B+
Comment: Liked the previous book better in concept but the story played out better here imho.Also since read this right after the last one, a lot of the details were fresh, it was a much smoother read than the second.
11. Third Circle (Arcane Society#4) by Jayne Ann Krentz
Rating: B+
Comment: I seldom read historicals now but since this is part of the Arcane series that I was currently reading, felt I needed to read it in order as to understand the dynamics of the past and present. Besides, I'm a sucker of the connecting past to present stories where you just get a hint of the other. Loved the characters and their interaction, had a much more old-school paranormal feel to it which was very cool
10.Alpha and Omega () by Patricia Briggs
Rating: B+
Comment: Another great book by Briggs, I always anticipate a new sequel to Briggs' Mercy series or the Alpha and Omega series.
