This weekend involved three books (all “rockstar-ish”) and none of the caliber of the books I’ve enjoyed over the last couple of weeks. Each one, almost generic in feel. Not sure how to describe the actual “writing” other than by saying they were mostly just telling me about the characters instead of having me feel it and live it myself. I was never there, never transported, just reading about them, instead if being them.

How to Kill a Rock Star
Quick note – before we get started, I just wanted to say that I LOVED THIS BOOK. 5 star for me. You’ll see why I needed to make this clear…
Once upon a time (yesterday) I read a book. It enticed me from the very start. I was drawn in from the first few moments. I thought to myself…
“Self, isn’t this exactly what we’ve been looking for? An intelligent, thought provoking view into the lives of two people, seemingly fated for each other. Aren’t we having fun? Look at that silly smile on your face, Self. You’re so smug with your brand new shiny find. You know your readers are gonna love this, don’t you?”
As per the author: “The Dragon Diaries is spin-off paranormal YA trilogy featuring Zoë and the next generation of Pyr.”
