The Devouring

The Vours are evil creatures who take over human bodies and use them to stir up a little more evil in the world. They take all of the memories that the person had before and use them to make sure they keep up the same personalities as their victims. No one suspects anything except for Reggie and her friend Aaron who try to get to the bottom of the stories.

These books are soo good, and almost even scary for me! When they involve a seven year old boy in one of the books, things get really creepy. Without Reggie, all hope might be lost! The books pull you in and make you feel for the characters, as well as make you want to figure out what exactly these "Vours" are and how they do the damage that they do.

Book Series, in order
1) The Devouring
2) Soulstice
3) Fearscape

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri *SPOILER ALERT*

The NamesakeThe Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I hated the ending! I wanted him to find out what his name would have been if his grandmother named him! (And I kind of like books that pull things together in the end rather than leaving so many loose ends.) I really didn't want him to end up alone. I read this for a class and we were always talking about how great it would be if Ruth would come back into his life again because she really was good for him and appreciated him as he was. Maxine was too focused on herself and Moushumi freaking CHEATED ON HIM! I was so mad at her! Especially since it was with a balding fat guy! Ugh!

The Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs

This isn't for this book, but the third book in the series instead. (They're all amazing!) *Spoiler Alert!*

Iron Kissed (Mercedes Thompson, #3)Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was simply AMAZING. I wondered for a while how Ben knew all of that about her but then I remembered why he had come to America. And I still don't think that completely justifies it, nor does his own abuse as a child. Still, I love the way Briggs explains things through her readers; She gives everyone time to catch up, but doesn't let the fast thinkers get bored while doing it. And the last line! Oh man, I wanted her to elaborate a little on that. :)
