Weekend Goals Actived 

I got through all three books that I wanted to read and I only have one more book to get be caught up with the in death series. Goals in the making. Now that I’ve pretty much caught up its time to get through other series and books. Now I don’t have the terrible need to read the in death series all the time. 

So after Brotherhood in Death will be waiting until September for the newest one. I’ll miss the characters which is the main reason for anyone to read these books but it is time for a little break. 

I also discovered that reading physical books right now don’t help me. So audible books have saved my reading life from coming nonexistent. I have found more ways to listen to books then actual read them especially at work and late night when everyone else is asleep. It’s just easier to plug in my headphones and listen to the narrators. 

So my weekend was a success and hopefully I can keep it going for the rest of the year. 

Hope everyone has a good week 😊

Review:Finding Dandelion by Lex Martin

Series: Dearest#2

Page Count: 310

Source: Kindle

Rating: 3.5/5

Summary: When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate’s brother? That’s a shock.

This book is really cute but not as good as Dearest Clementine. First off the first 16 chapters was a rerun of the first book. Which is cool since you get a backstory and how they meet and so on. However since Dani was Clem’s roommate they could of meet anytime after the first book. Oh and after chapter 16 it’s there story and how they meet again but he doesn’t remember her. Then she totally tries to pretend that he doesn’t exist. Which brings the whole of talked this through then it would have been easier. But no it took and accident that happened before thanksgiving that got them to talk. 

Another thing is this book was in dual POVs. Which I didn’t understand why the author did this in the second book and not the first one. It was mostly Dani but there was plenty of Jax also. It was kinda nice to see Jax background and why he is a pimp who knows how to kick butt on a soccer field. 
Things I didn’t like for one the plot kinda of ran the same length as Dearest Clementine. It just seemed like I’ve read it before and skipped over some of it. Also for the fact it drags as their thinking of each other or what to do. Further more Dani kept using hashtag which wasn’t even in a message form. She would random think of something then put hashtag after in. #WTF lol just joking. 
So even though I enjoyed the book and thought it was cute. I still enjoyed Clem’s story more. Don’t know if am going to start the last one. Maybe later if am up to it.

Decisson: Marathoning Series

I don’t always marathon it’s actually very rare for me to do so. I wish I could just go through the whole series and say that I read them and have more room on my self. Because most of my shelves consist of series. However the reason I don’t get through them fast is because I burned out from the series. Also I like to collect books in a series even if I only read the first book. I don’t know why I get burned out so fast or don’t want to continue on the series. You would think if am enjoyed the first one I would want to continue, however that’s not what happens.

Some books that I have started by reading the first book is.

Benny Imura series by Jonathan Maberry

Razorland series by Ann Aguirre

Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead

Black City series by Elizabeth Richards

The Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo

Legend series by Marie Lu

The Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Claire

and many more that I don’t think I want to list for the fact that I’ll be here all day with that list. It’s funny since I have  two shelf full of series that I have all or most of the books. This summer am hoping (fingers doubled crossed) that I can tackle some of the series I have. Or at least read the first book to see if I want to continue on. If not then I can donate and make room for more books.

As I’ve said it’s very rare for me to actually finish series right away if I think about it I believe I’ve only done one. How sad is that. Okay I need to stop rambling and ask a question to all of you. Are you guys great at keeping up with series as they come out or just marathon them when you collect them all? Or are you like me and just collect series and take forever to get through them?

Happy reading everyone 🙂
