Summer Reading

I had a hard time deciding on what to write today but finally was able to come up with a topic. I have no idea why I was having writer's block well okay to be honest I did have a topic to write about but I haven't quite formulated how I want to write it yet. And this topic of Summer Reading has been on my To Do List to write. 

So I had started off the summer reading with this book-

With all the reviews that I saw on Amazon (73 to be exact) and most of them were glowing of this book. So I had downloaded a sample (have to love technology now a days) and I was impressed with the sample so I purchased the kindle version and was excited to start my new book. Well let me tell ya the sample was the best part because it dragged! I'm not one to quit a book but I heavily contemplated quitting this one. What didn't I like the book? First off I felt like the point of the story was lost and at times I forgot what the point was. Parts of the book just dragged on and on. One thing that really annoyed me was in Part 2 of the book all of a sudden it changes point of view and it's sudden change and unexpected and as a reader it made it confusing and then you almost had to back track in the book because now this other character is rehashing all of Part One that you just struggled through. All in all I finished the book however I did leave a 2 star review on Amazon. 

I have now moved on to probably the most talked about summer read 

and I have to say so far I'm really into this book, okay now get your mind out of the gutter I don't mean because of the highly sexual explicit details but because it's a light read and I think perfect for the summer. I know everyone loves or hates the book but I have to say I'm flying through the first book and I'm liking it so far. I can't wait to see how the series plays out.

What's on your summer reading list??
