The Society of S by Susan Hubbard

10/10 - It's been a long time since I read a book that I literally couldn't put down. Of course it had to be another YA vampire fiction book, but at this point I have to tell you I'm really not caring. Thanks Gwen for lending this one to me. This story is narrated by 13 year old Ariella, and doesn't have any of Twilight's sexiness. That would be creepy right? This was more a vampire murder mystery. I really liked it, give it a chance.

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

7/10 - Cute, quirky beginning to the Southern Vampire series. I had a hard time because I was constantly comparing it to True Blood, which seemed more thorough. Not really fair since they devoted one whole season to the first book in the series. I put the next one on my wishlist, so maybe I can be a little more unbiased since they haven't turned that one into a TV show.

Sarah's Quilt by Nancy E. Turner

7/10 - Well, I'm a little bummed. The book previous to this, These Is My Words, featuring Sarah Agnes Prine is probably in my top ten of all time. So I had high expectations for this book which was to continue Sarah's story. I still love Sarah and think she is a wonderful character, but the storyline of this book just didn't do it for me. I felt like all of the dramatic moments seemed so disjointed. I don't want to ruin it for anyone, so I'll say there were some points that flowed, but others just seemed to be thrown in there to break up the monotony. It moved much slower than TIMW, and I was hoping to see a little more to come of two love interests. Those could have been some really great additions, but little came of either. Now I'm debating about reading the third book The Star Garden. Can anyone give me their opinion of it?
