Rating: 4 out of 5.

The third installment in this series did not live up to my own expectations. I found myself getting bored and unable to focus in at some points of the book. It won’t stop me from reading the final installation though. I didn’t lose interest in the series.

Dangerous.

Long time, no see. Classes kicked my you-know-what this semester and I had zero time for reading. Tonight I finished my first book since January and it was a spin-off to one of my all-time favorite series: the Lux series.

If you don’t like aliens, a story that will make you grin ear-to-ear, or an author who can write leading men like it’s second nature then this isn’t the book for you.

One damn night. Not five long years.

I was lucky enough back in May this year to go to this really awesome panel of four authors (Kiera Cass, Kimberly Derting, Danielle Paige, and Kelley Armstrong) and hear about their most recent books. Continue reading “The Taking (The Taking, #1)”
