Midnight Sun Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

25% into the book, tossing it. Edward's inner monologue is excruciatingly boring. I hope when I am 80 my inner landscape is going to be more evolved than that!

Deadly Nightshade (Deadly Mystery, #1)Deadly Nightshade (Deadly Mystery, #1) by Victor J. Banis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The characters were fairly one-dimensional and not believable as police detectives. The who-dunnit was too straight forward and simple.
Both main characters were walking cliches. Especially the straight cop in this dynamic duo was portrayed as so simple and uneducated, that I wonder how he ever made detective.
Someone looking for a proper cop story should stay away from this. But if you are looking for a little light reading with some not very deep romance thrown in, it'll be fine. Take it with you to the beach!

Oh, forgot to mention, on All Romance you can download one free romance novel per day until the 21st of April. Not sure about the quality and some of them sound incredibly cheesy. I download a supernatural one that sounds a bit like Harry Potter at a US college, a gay cop story and something with shapeshifters. Reading fodder for my Kindle!

Go here and click on the banner, it will take you to the free book of the day. You need to sign up with your address, but don't need to give any payment details, so I don't think that is a big deal. I did have to give them a state though, even after listing Germany as my country and they obviously only list the US states. So I now reside in Alabama! :-)

Dime Store Magic (Women of the Otherworld, #3)Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I did not like Paige very much in the previous books, so this ended up sitting on my shelf for over a year. She was as annoying as I remembered in the first half of the book. But I liked the plot and the action picked up nicely in the second half, so I tried to ignore her more stupid personality traits. The book ended up being fun.

Irresistible Forces (Kimani Romance)Irresistible Forces by Brenda Jackson

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

A free Kindle download. So predictable that I could summarize it after reading the first chapter and was almost spot-on. I skimmed after the first few chapters. Shallow and uninspired, it was painfully boring. Really? If I had paid money for this, I would not have been happy.

Books I've read in 2010 )

The list is pretty pathetic. One of my two New Year resolutions is to read more in 2011.
