Recent Reads is a way for me to round up books that I have read recently that are either too small to really give a detailed review of them, or are books read for fun with no review notes taken.
I've had Depth of Field sitting on my shelf for a while waiting to be read, and after getting the next book in this series for review, I decided I really need to dive back into this world and finish this book.
Pippa is going to Tisch after winning the competition, and her opponent and photo stealer, Ben goes too. I expected things to be tense between this duo, but Ben quickly makes amends for his actions and explains his reasons for doing what he does, this did make me feel sorry for him.
Pippa goes on a journey or learning, of growing, and also finds some hidden family secrets that she had no idea about, secrets her Mum didn't want her to know.
I really enjoyed this book, from the photography, the cash cab, even down to making friends with unexpected people. I can't wait to dive into this world again with the next book.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, so when I saw H.I.V.E: Overlord Protocol in my library I knew I had to read it. H.I.V.E: Overlord Protocol picks up after book one, but can be read without really knowing too much about the previous book, as major things are briefly covered.
Reading H.I.V.E: Overlord Protocol I felt it was immature for me, I think I'd enjoy it more as an audio, rather than reading it. I liked the plot and the story, and I think this is perfect for age band around 10 years of age or slightly older.
This has been on my shelf for a while, and with the publication of the next installment imminent I thought it was best to tackle this one while I had the chance. What a book this was, it had so many twists and turns I never knew what was going to happen next, who would die, and what the ending would be like. It's been a while since I last visited Kate's world, but we had a brief overview of everything that's happened so far ,and a quick run down of who was who, which was helpful.
I love Kate as a character, I love seeing how she has grown as a character, both as an individual, but also as a partner. With Curran at her side this couple can do anything, but even that is put into doubt in the pages of Magic Breaks, I have never been so worried over these characters before.
I initially wasn't sure about Desandra but after a few pages of having her around she did grow on me, and towards the end of the book she really did show why she deserves to be Alpha.
Ascanio was someone who is either hit or miss for me, mainly due to his arrogance, but I found him entertaining, especially trying to get in to Desandra good books.....or bed ;)
Overall Magic Breaks was another fantastic addition to this world, and I have the next book ready and waiting to be read.
