20 books... not bad even if some of them were audiobooks)
even tough they didn't get the highest marks i think maybe my favorite from this year were still "Shiver" & "Willow" but yes "Loving Sabotage" was also great fun. Other then that I didn't read anything that remarkable this year. But Im not complaining.

Language read in: (eng) english (est) estonian

The way i rate books in well my way of rating things, i also consider the genre a lot when rating them and I'm not that harsh i think. It's just how much i enjoyed the book or how it left me feeling that is base for the rating. I don't compare a book that is a ya novel with a serious play or smth of that sort. They are completely different to begin with so they get graded based on how good they were according to me in their category.

2008 Book count 22 with still some books started that year that need to be finished now.

notes for self - sequels to wait for: shiver / hush, hush / fang / airhead

i've bumped into that series when i decided to start on this Dante Valentine... but thats all i can really say about that one. This one i think is quite alright, nothing extremely spectacular but i quite enjoy reading it :) witch is well important :D
What's your thoughts on Jill Kismet? I can't imagine really as DV was written before that ...and then she continued to make another similar series... as a literature test it does intrigue me to try it out after i finish DV because i often wonder how these similar series of same author work out.

I've stopped DV for the time being but the new Kismet series intrigued me so I picked it up along with Midnight's Daughter by Karen Chance (which is quite interesting if you like her other series) and the Kismet series is all right but she tries too hard to be like Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan which sort of doesn't work out because her style of writing is nowhere near as magnetic as Harrison's. (I might be biased though.) It wasn't bad just nothing...spectacular.

hmm I don't feel like reading the Kismet series XD I like Rachel Morgan too much to try to read something that tries to be that :D
Dante Valentine is getting more interesting tough :D .... still not as good as Rachel Morgan, but it a little bit different anyhow. :D
