Friday Mini Reviews #49: Jim Butcher, J.D. Robb & Tijan


Changes by Jim Butcher (Harry Dresden #12)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads
Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden's lover—until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it.

Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it—against Harry. To prevail this time, he may have no choice but to embrace the raging fury of his own untapped dark power. Because Harry's not fighting to save the world...

He's fighting to save his child.

9.5/10
This is beyond doubt one of the best and one of the hardest books in the series, and I really really enjoyed it. Action-packed, emotionally heart wrenching, Changes is a breaking point in Harry Dresden's character development. Hugely recommended installment!

Без какого-либо сомнения, Перемены - одна из самых лучших и самых трудных книг в этой серии. Эмоционально жёсткая, наполненная экшн, книга эта - переломный момент в развитии характера Гарри Дрездена. Очень рекомендую!


Naked in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #1)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads

It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion.

When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washing-ton politics and society.

Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome... and the leading suspect in the investigation.

8/10
 Funny how over the years I've read this book so many times, but ended up reviewing the whole series in audio format. While it starts shakily, it's a striking blend of romance and sci-fi with immensely charismatic characters, Eve Dallas and Roarke. With 40+ books in the series all written by Nora Roberts as J.D. Robb these books continue to be as strong and as entertaining as ever. Thoroughly recommended. They are addictive as hell!

 Как-то смешно получается, что за последние десять лет читала я эту книгу не раз, а вот всю серию решила слушать и рецензировать в аудио формате. Хоть и начинается она немного шатко, эта смесь романа и научной фантастики настолько сногшибательна и соединяет в себе одну из наиболее харизматичных и сильных пар, что я когда либо читала - Еву Даллас и Рорка, что противиться её притяжению невозможно. С больше чем 40 книгами в серии, она до сих пор остаётся довольно сильной. Очень советую!

 


Fallen Crest High by Tijan (Fallen Crest High #1)

free

Synopsis from Goodreads

Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend her school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now Samantha has to live with them. The problem is that she doesn't care at all: about them, about her friends, about her cheating boyfriend, or even about her parent's divorce. But maybe that's a good thing. Maybe change is a good thing.

This book contains adult/mature young adult situations.

8/10
Alright, I got absolutely hooked on this book when I first went on Wattpad. Sooo not my style, incredibly melodramatic, high maintenance and improbable, this is an entertaining as hell soap, my dear readers! I couldn't stop reading about Samantha with her anxiety disorder and her new highly destructive step brothers who seem to rule their tiny community and pretty much do what and who they want... Don't even let me start on her mother! *rolls her eyes* Yep, that was something!
 * * *
Во всём я виню Воттпад, где я впервые увидела эту книгу. Совершенно не в моём вкусе, она чрезвычайно мелодраматична, невероятна до абсурда и в то же время от неё не оторваться. Это настоящая мыльная опера, дамы и господа! Саманта страдает неврозами, её новые сводные братья - испорченные, богатые мальчишки, которые каким-то образом вседозволенно правят маленьким городком, в котором они живут... И я даже не хочу упоминать их стервозную мачеху! В общем, сплошная драма-ллама, но очень увлекательная.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
