Three. Pex Book Challenge

Read this sometime in May. 

I enjoyed the book. I love both characters Dane Madousin and Aerin Renning, the top 2 brightest, intelligent 17 year olds in The Alliance. They were both accepted in Academy 7, the top exclusive school that trained the future military and government leaders in the Alliance. The world is huge and it has a lot of potential to explore should the author expand this into a series. 

One thing that I didn't like about it is the ending. It seems a bit anticlimactic to me. I felt that the secret that they're trying to be find about both of their past was given too easy and fast. 

I did like the relationship of Dane and Aerin and the way the author handled it. It was not forced and she just let them grow by how they interact in the school's subjects, teaching each other how to fight and sharing a troubled past. 

Rating: 4/5

Pex Book Challenge 2012

Second book.

Title: The Vampire Diaries - The Awakening
Author: L.J. Smith
Time: 4/15/2012
Rating: 3/5

I do not watch the TV series so I can't really compare the two. I've decided to read the book because the TV series is well into it's Season 4 is it? That's a lot to catch up. 

Little did I know that the novel series already has 10 books. Wikipedia. The Awakening is where it all started and it depicts Elena and Stefan as the protagonist. 

I didn't really like the book very much. Though I did finish it within 5 hours or so. I actually had to forced myself to get to the ending. It's not really that bad. I just didn't like it that much that I'll probably will not finish the entire novel series.
