My Teaser:

Quinn stared at him. Their breath still fogged in the air as if the heat in the house wasn’t working.  Gooseflesh had sprung up along her forearm, and she shivered. “You want to tell me what just happened there?”

“Yeah.|” Nick turned his head to look at her. “That’s the rest of my secret.”

  Champion (Legend #3) by Marie Lu  Absolutley loved this series.  I really enjoyed the last book. Lots of action and suspense and especially loved the ending.  I will post a review soon.

Scent of Magic (Healer, #2)Currently Reading : Scent of Magic (Healer #2) by Maria Snyder.  I have barely scratched the surface but am loving it anyway.

I don’t know?  That is odd for me.  I am dying to get my hands on Secret (Elemental #4) by Brigid Kemmerer and perhaps The Selection by Kiera Cass? Any advice?

Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer

Product DetailsSpirit (Elemental #3) by Brigid Kemmerer.  Published May 2013 by Kensington Books.  CDN $6.99 Kindle Edition.

With power comes enemies. Lots of them.

Hunter Garrity just wants to be left alone. He’s learned the hard way that his unusual abilities come at a price. And he can’t seem to afford any allies.

He’s up to his neck in hostiles. His grandfather, spoiling for a fight. The Merrick brothers, who think he ratted them out. Calla, the scheming psycho who wants to use him as bait.

Then there’s Kate Sullivan, the new girl at school. She’s not hostile. She’s bold. Funny. Hot. But she’s got an agenda, too.

With supposedly secret powers rippling to the surface everywhere around him, Hunter knows something ugly is about to go down. But finding out what means he’ll have to find someone he can trust…(Goodreads excerpt)

Awesome!  Again another truly great read in the series.  I was not a big fan of Hunter when I started this series; something about him just didn’t ring as well as the brothers did. Perhaps it was his giant ego, or the chip on his shoulder that he carried around, well not anymore.  Brigid did an awesome job of getting us to see the depth of the real Hunter, flaws and all.  I like the comment she makes in the Beyond the Story section.  ‘This book isn’t about Hunter finding romance.  It’s about Hunter finding himself.’  It is truly an amazing read, different in some ways from the other stories but equally compelling.

I liked the female lead in this book Kate.  She is spunky and full of life and charm and the perfect character to draw Hunter out.  I liked how Hunter and Kate related to each other and I laughed each time Kate bested Hunter at something.  I felt empathy for her situation as well and wanted them to end up together.

I was a bit shocked at the twist towards the end (I won’t give it away) as it wasn’t typical of Brigid, but it made sense and fit well with Hunter’s story, making me feel even more empathy for Hunter.  I love how the story of all of the elementals keeps evolving with each book.  I loved that the brothers took Hunter in and made him one of them.  In the other books he was always an outsider and now he feels more like a fifth brother.

Brigid is truly an amazing writer and I love this series.  I can’t wait for the next book.

5 stars for me.

 

 

Musing Mondays (June 10)

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!


My Musing: 

My Musing this week is about the Series or the Standalone…which do you prefer?

I think I prefer the standalone book.  I hate waiting all that time for the next book to find out what happens in the story.  Having said that I think my favorite is a series that each book is independent of each other.  For example: The Elemental Series by Brigid Kemmerer:

Product DetailsProduct DetailsProduct Details

Each story is an independent story on its own, but still relates to the overall story as a whole.  This way you still anticipate the next book, but your not left waiting for what happens next.

Note:  Brigid also wrote short novella’s in between each of the stories each about 50-60 pages long to keep us until the next full length book:

“I wouldn’t have offered if I did.”  He gave her a breathtaking smile.  Nice and handsome.

She almost hated to kill him.

Almost.
