Book Review! "Monster in His Eyes"

So, I started this book, and while I was reading I did a lot of thinking, thinking about how I'm over reading stories about sassy poor little co-eds who find some hot rich dude to solve all of their problems, money wise, food wise, clothing wise, and sexing wise. I've never read 50 Shades but while I was reading this I kept thinking, "Is this 50 Shades?" I guess I just wanted more character development in the beginning. There's more to a relationship than money and fornication.
That being said, the second half of the book started to get pretty twisted and I couldn't stop reading. And then... holy hell, twisted isn't even the word for the last quarter of the book.
Also, the philosophy musings tie in quite well. However, this book was missing a teeny tiny bit of magical somethingness. Hopefully I can explain later after I've let the book stew in my head for a bit.

Book Review! The 5th WAVE

I've been book stalking The 5th WAVE for over a year now. And then it went on sale. And then I read it and was totally blown away. Not what I expected. I loved it. Except for that last page. If I had this in paper form, I think I'd rip that last page right out of the book and burn it. I literally found myself, multiple times, so engrossed that my mouth was hanging open and the world could have exploded around me and I would have never known.
What I didn't realize was that this is part of a series. And now I have to wait until September to read the second book. I might go crazy waiting to find out what happens with everyone, and Evan, what the hell happened to Evan! Not cool, Rick. Not cool at all.
(Since I finished this at 3:40 in the morning, I need a nap, and then I might alter this review a tad.)
