Spring book review

I haven't been able to devote as much time to reading as I did this winter, but it's the winter and what else are you to do. My young adult fiction obsession of 2011 is still going strong though!

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
This book was very annoying. It was young adult to the extreme and it just lacking in every way. It is about werewolves that only change in the winter and one loves a human while he is a dog. Then they like meet for real and it is love at first sight and blah blah blah. There was no action and allot of lameness.

Bossypants by Tina Fey
This was a book club selection AND the best one yet! Tina Fey is so hilarious and I couldn't stop laughing and trying to read parts to Jonathan out loud. Too bad he didn't care. When she was describing how her country in-laws didn't understand NYC and how she doesn't understand things like pickled eggs and apple butter I was dying. That is my real life! What is apple butter anyways? Gross. (My family eats apple butter. It looks like mix between jam and peanut butter and tastes like... I don't even know)

Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 11)
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
This is the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel and the series that True Blood is based off of. I think this is the tenth book but don't quote me on that. I've read the whole series and I find them enjoyable, but I am kind of over the story line. Sometimes I like when you have an ending and don't have to wait two more years for another cliff hanger. But why kill a cash cow, am I right?

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Another book club selection! AND I got the book club into the YA books! I had heard a lot of talk about this book and series and even an upcoming movie. After my sister-in-law raving about the book when I saw her on Memorial day weekend, I got the book from the library. I really liked it! The story is about what was the United States and now are 12 different districts. After a rebellion the rulers of the land created the hunger games to keep everyone in line. Some nights I was in an action part and couldn't put the book down. So it was a good read.
