Need By: Carrie Jones

Book Summary:

when i started to read Need the only thing i had to say about the book was that the people at Zara's school were.....interesting.....(i had no further comments). Then as i got a little more into the book i saw the whole love triangle thing going on with Zara,Nick,and Ian. There also was of course the classic bitch Megan. It was good for Zara when she started to make friends but what were all of them not telling her? what secrets are everyone that Zara is associating keeping? What do they know that she doesnt?

As for Zara's stalker i honestly thought that he would have more of an effect, more of an intimidation factor i suppose. He really didnt start carrying any weight until a good bit after i reached the middle of the book.

Honestly Zara did become a very confusing,helpless,and annoying character but she did redeem herself around the middle of the book.

I guess basically what im saying is that things start 2 get interesting after you reach somewhere around the middle of the book where everything gets absolutely crazy.

Im a little hesitant on my rating on this book since it did take a while for the book to really be able to hold my attention but i will reluctantly give this book a 4 out of 5 because the book was pretty good from around the middle to the end and that makes me want 2 know what happens in the next book Captive.:)

Cleopatra's Daughter By: Vicky Alvear Shecter

Book Summary:

(Warning: This is the story of Cleopatra's Daughter Selene NOT Cleopatra even though Cleopatra does appear a few times in the begging of the book)

This book was sooooooo amazing!!! I became addicted and obsessed with this book, staying up till 3am reading nonstop. While reading I would have posted more updates on goodreads, but I knew for a fact that I was never going to be able to pull myself away from the book long enough to do so. I liked this version of Selene even though it is a version that relishes more in the royal perks than others that I have read about. This story is very well written and Vicky Alvear Shecter does a fantastic job at drawing the reader into the story and really knows how to make you believe that you are in the book (I love it when authors can accomplish that well). This book is great and I highly recommend it :D
