I’m back to share my May reads from 2016 with you. My library streak continued and I was excited to pick up Burned. Feverborn had already been released, so I was itching to get through Burned and jump into Feverborn. Burned was so good! I started it on May first and finished it up on the 8th. And I was glad that I checked Feverborn out of the library to have on deck when I finished this one. Moning has a way of blowing my mind even when I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. It took me way longer to read this one than it really should have, but that’s what a busy schedule does to my booklife. I do feel like I should have gone back and reread Shadowfever before starting this one, since there was such a big gap between when I read that one and this one. Although Iced was a recent read, there were definitely things about Mac and Barrons that I was a little fuzzy on, so a refresh probably would have helped.
And I just have to share this photo from @greenletterday on Instagram. She posted up these fantastic skeins of yarn with the caption: “Some of my favorite book heroines in yarn form: Miss Lane, The Mega, and Smokin’ Jada by the lovely @houseofalamode.” When I first saw this post I thought “ok, but who’s Jada?” After reading further I left her the comment: “So…when you posted this I had no idea who Jada was. I’m currently reading Burned. So when I got to Jada, I was like ok now I know who Jada is. But a few chapters later…and now my mind is blown about Jada!!!! Now I seriously need this yarn trio.”
Well, needless to say, I could not start Feverborn fast enough.
And, as is often the case with KMM’s books, I find that she has the ability to pierce right through to the truth of things that goes beyond this story, beyond these books, and I nod my head and think “girl, I feel you.”
But seriously, I read this book (and it’s a thick one!) in about a week. Why do I have to wait so long for the next book???? Love KMM, love this series, love the characters. This book was no different from the others in that my reading of it was complete and utter engagement – they make me cry, they make me miss my own sister, they make me want to throw the book across the room, they make me gasp in surprise, they make me talk back to them (and as much as Dani annoyed me in Shadowfever, these books even have me yelling “Dude!” at them). If you haven’t read these books – go right now and read them. Seriously. If you gave up after Shadowfever and had no interest in reading Iced (that was me), suck it up and go read Iced so that you can read Burned and then this book. Seriously, go.
