Monday... er, Tuesday Reads

Meg Cabot is one of my fave authors. I loved the Princess Diaries books, enjoyed some of her stand-alones, and Avalon High is probably my favorite by her. So when my library had a ginormous used book sale, I quickly snapped up her Abandon trilogy. 

I have mixed feelings about these books. They're definitely not my top Meg Cabot books. The romance went from non-existent (she was totally creeped out by the dude) to mega-I'll-give-up-everything-for-you-love, the MC was annoying and annoyingly stupid at times, and there were moments when I scoffed out loud at what was happening. AND YET... I kept reading. Not really sure why, but the books were interesting enough to keep me going and I read all three in a relatively short period of time. Three stars for all three because obviously something- and I have no clue what- kept me going.

After those, I read a 5-star read: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I loved this book. It did take me a bit to get into it, but once I did, I didn't want to put it down. The dialogue was great, the tension between the two leads was awesome, it was funny, exciting, and basically everything I wanted it to be. Can't wait to pick up the second book in the duology, Daughter of the Siren Queen. But before I do, I'm immersing myself in the world of Crazy Rich Asians...
