My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Loved this book. Those last few chapters were enough to bring me to tears, but that ending left me furious!!! That. Was. It???? And I can't believe I really have to wait a whole year for a 4th book?? THAT. WILL. SUCK. But I can't wait to read it and find out if I will hate the authors or not lol! DON'T KILL MY FAVORITES, PLEASE!!!!!!!! This series is one of my favorites and I love how very detailed it is from the scenery to the facial expressions to the feelings and emotions of each character. I love Lena & Ethan. And you know...

ACCORDANCE.

Accordance  (Significance, #2)Accordance by Shelly Crane

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Just as good as the first if not BETTER!!! I've really become addicted to this story. I love the characters and the plots and the abilities and ascensions are becoming really interesting and exciting!! I need to imprint lol! Will definitely check out "Defiance" (the 3rd book in the series) next spring. Can't wait!

SIGNIFICANCE.

Significance ( Significance, #1)Significance by Shelly Crane

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I LOVED it! Thought the Twilight and Harry Potter referencing was appropriately funny and I also loved that it took the idea of imprinting, ran with it, but that the outcome was something new and different. I adore Caleb! =) And also was not annoyed at all with Maggie. She can hold her own, isn't too ridiculous and mopey (only appropriately so given the whole imprinting situation)and that he relies on her just as much as she does on him! Great read, very unexpected, super affordable ($0.99) and excited to get to the next!

SILENCE.

Silence (Hush, Hush, #3)Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Uhmm... I don't know if this is just me... but I could've SWORN this was the last book in the series. Apparently not since it left us with an even larger cliffhanger than it's predecessor. So I guess I will be adding a 4th book to my "to-read" list. Anyway. Although I was slightly irritated that not everything would be resolved at the end of this book, I still really enjoyed it and the familiar characters. I honestly, absolutely adore Patch/Jev! Seriously, one of my fave male, lead characters. I liked the plot of this book. I thought the beginning lagged a bit because Nora was so disoriented and confused much of the time. I wish there had been more Vee in the book. I really like her and Nora's friendship and it's often funny and lighthearted among the more darker themes of the book. All in all I thought it was a good book and I wouldn't mind reading another. =)
