End of the Year Reads

I have to admit that I haven't been updating the list too much so been trying to rack my brain of the books that I did read this month and the next.
01. Heir to the Dog (Dog Walker Mysteries #2) by Judi McCoy
Comment:it wasn't bad, I dont know if maybe because it took me awhile to read this that it didn't really pull me into the story like the first book in the series.
02. Night Rising (Vampire Babylon #1) by Chris Marie Green
Comment:very Hollywood glam vampire and all that, not bad but I didn't really connect with the heroine to be honest. I don't know if it's just me but her being that bitter wasn't really justified for me. And this is one of those, why must urban fantasy heroines sleep around so much, stories. Although technically she didnt really sleep with anyone at this point.
03. Edge of Hunger by Rhyannon Byrd
Comment:ok read. guy is a little bit too in denial and goes into too many "she's too good for me" phases that was annoying at some point.
04. Vicious Circle (The Circle Series #1) by Linda Robertson
Rating: B+
Comment: I admit I quite enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next book.

6. Sex and the Immortal Bad Boy (Immortally Sexy #4) by Stephanie Rowe
Comment:I always enjoy Rowe and look forward to her series, I have to admit that I wasn't really into Paige when she was first introduced in the previous book but I like how she was developed in this book. I hope Rowe continues her series
7. Demon Angel (Guardians 2) by Meljean Brooks
Comment: the hero was a little too whiney for me, but it wasn't bad. will continue the series. Incidentally the first book is from an anthology which I just got so I'll read that first
8. The Becoming (Anna Strong Chronicles #1)by Jeanne Stein
Comment:Suzanne recommended this to me and she sent me the first four books of the series. The first book started out pretty strong in my opinion
9. Magic in the Wind (Drake Sisters #1) by Christine Feehan
Comment:short novella, good introduction to the sisters
10. Twilight After Christmas(Drake Sisters #2) by Christine Feehan
Comment:very sweet story, liked it moving on the next one
11. Turbulent Seas(Drake Sisters #4) by Christine Feehan
Comment:hmm villian was a little sad but Abbie is my favorite sister so I was looking forward to her book, there were lots of good moments there but sometimes I get the feeling that feehan is just prolonging the book
12. Safe Harbor(Drake Sisters #5) by Christine Feehan
Comment: The tension between Hannah and Jonas has been very obvious since the beginning and I wanted to find out how their story goes, I don't know if it's just me but I got a little bored. The thing with reading Feehan is that after awhile she tends to get repetitive if you read her straight. I didnt really feel that when I started reading
13. Blood Drive(Anna Strong Chronicles #2)by Jeanne Stein
Comment:The first book started out well and I thought the second book was pretty good too
14. The Watcher(Anna Strong Chronicles #3)by Jeanne Stein
Comment:Written much like previous two ,book 3  continues the adventures of newly turned Anna Strong.There's many things happening in this book and I like this series so far but I'm starting to feel that the character needs more development. This is the third book already and it feels like she's just been turned still.
15. The Legacy (Anna Strong Chronicles #4)by Jeanne Stein
Comment: I was SOO disappointed with this book! Books 1-3 were pretty engaging reads but it took me awhile to get through this one. Pretty much piles and piles of angst heaped together on Anna's head, with the plot still missing. I heard the next book is better so hopefully it's true. I still want to know what happens though so will read book 5 still
