The Iron Queen (Iron Fey, #3)The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was AWESOME! It was so nice to be in The Iron Fey world once again. I could not help but to fall in love with these characters from the beginning of the series. This book drives you a little batty becuz of how it ends, but I was very happy to find out there is a fourth one coming from Ash's perspective and journey. This series and esp. this book has such a Alice in Wonderland feel to it. Grimalkin was a creative master piece of a character. I found myself missing him when he would disappear just as Meagan did! Meagan has quite a ride in this story, its exciting, adventurous thrill ride from page 1 to the very end. I have been telling everyone that I can about this book series. I can only hope and dream that it some day becomes a film. It would be a block buster for sure! If you have not devoured this series and you love YA fantasy , romance, adventure, fey, and action , grab it as soon as u can!

Fallout (Crank, #3)Fallout by Ellen Hopkins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was so nice to get book three to Kristen's story. This book was from 3 different perspectives, which sometimes can be confusing. It always takes me awhile to learn each character but thats okay, I enjoy the way these books are written. If you have never read or picked up a Ellen Hopkins book, I highly recomend doing so. They are written in poetry form. You might have a page that is shaped in a letter S and then the next page maybe a question mark, it is really cool and makes reading very enjoyable.

This series to me, is for 16 and up. They delve into some hardcore issues, but are written very well. This series is focused on a girl who gets addicted to crystal meth and how it effects her life and her choices and all the people around her. It is loosely based on the authors own experience with her daughter. I recently found out that her and her daughter are working on a memoir called, "Monster". Kristen calls meth, "monster". But the book is on hold due to Kristina going under treatment for lung cancer. It is so sad, becuz after reading these books I have come to care for Kristina and there is understanding how a person can make a few wrong choices and thats all it takes to go down a path that u really have to struggle to get off of. This book shows you and really makes you think about how it could happen to anyone, not just the people who are the typical sterotype.

I am looking forward to any of Ellen's future books and hope Kristina is doing well.

If you are new to Ellen Hopkins , I say start with "Impulse" (thats my fav) or this series, which is; "Crank", "Glass" and now "Fallout". U must read the Crank series in order or you will be confused.

Enna Burning (The Books of Bayern, #2)Enna Burning by Shannon Hale

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful fairytale. I listened to the audio, becuz it is a fullcast which was really nice. This is the second book to the Goose Girl. This book brings in a new person's perspective which I really enjoyed. It started out a little slow for me, probably the first quarter of the story, but then really picks up. Shannon Hale's books always make me feel warm and fuzzy, like I am curled up by a fireplace with a cozy soft blanket with a cup of hot chocolate, aaaahhhhh......... That is the best way I can describe her books. Not that there is not action, death and destruction, but the overall stories are very fairytale-ish (if thats a word, I say it is, lol) I love the words she chooses. I am definitely glad that I started this series and plan on going on with it. I would recommend this to anyone who loves old folklore and/or a good fairytale.
