I didn't expect much from this series, and it delivered. The characters were flimsy and the plot was cliche. I was disappointed in the fact that the book relied on this "Twilight" style (done to death) love story but gave NO back story until the last book in the series... which I am honestly surprised I made it to. If I wouldn't have borrowed these books from my brother's girlfriend I would not have even bothered to finish them. The whole series is garbage...

I could not, for the life of me, get into this book... I've tried on multiple occasions to pick it up and start it over... but for some reason I've never gotten even half way.

Balances the thin line between tragedy and comedy perfectly. It was sweet and sad and funny. I loved it. It's a quick read, but it is emotional.

I loved Lullaby. It was engaging, provocative, and funny like most Palahniuk books. Another thoughtfully twisted read.

Not for the chaste, but hilarious for the rest of us. I laughed out loud to the point of being obnoxious often with this read. Chelsea Handler is funnier in ink.

A quick read that starts off so sweet and just morphs into this whole other thing. I loved and hated it at the same time. You come to really root for the main character and the end is really jarring. All in all I enjoyed the book, though I thought it ended on a really heavy note for the somewhat light feel that lead up to it.
