Hopes and dreams

Posted by Jenn Christensen at 9:21 PM
Well, I just finished Crusade a few hours ago and I've been sitting here gathering my thoughts about the book. I've also been compiling some other thoughts and photos. So without further ado...


Crusade
Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie

REVIEW: What can I say about this book? Hmm. WOW! There was just sooo much going on at once. So many people, so many cultural and religious backgrounds. Then you go and add in vampires. Good vampires, bad vampires, humans who worship the vampires and humans who fight against them. It took me a month to read this book. That is the longest it has ever taken me to read ANY book. I'm not saying I'm disappointed with the book or anything. I just can't believe it took me so long to read it. Every few pages I would have to put the book down so I could absorb all the information that was bombarded onto me. Jenn and Antonio, Jamie and Eriko, Skye and Holgar. I had to keep track of seven main characters feelings and flashbacks. The book was very good and I did enjoy it, but I think it should have been broken down a little bit more. Maybe into more books? I am in love with Jenn and Antonio. I want so much to happen between them. I was not expecting Heather to be turned. And I definitely wasn't expecting Jenn to end up being Hunter. She just seems too selfish and self absorbed to me. She cares more about Antonio than anyone else in the group. Maybe I just need to read the next books. Hopefully she changes. There were 3 major writing errors that I came across. One was leaning when it should have been learning. The other two work name slip-ups. The first one was talking about Father Juan and Father Antonio was accidentally said and the other one was Alice's name was mistyped as Alicia. Overall, regardless of all the information and chaos, I really did love the book. I give the book 4/5 stars.

I also pulled a favorite quote from the book. I was actually laughing and people thought I was crazy.

Father Juan regarding Holgar. Father Juan squeezed his eyes shut. "I think I know what you did with the head."

COVER: I really like the creepiness of the over. The fog and the lightning make it seem scary. I'm assuming the building is meant to be the Academia.


IN OTHER NEWS:
I have yet to find my other hermit crab but she is still alive. I keep hearing her shell hit things around the house. I've gathered some pictures, as usual, so I can post them and share my life with you guys.


This is the BEST ice cream EVER. 

I am saving up for this bad girl. She will be my new blogging laptop =)

THIS WEEKS BOOKS:

I purchased this from Barnes and Noble with a coupon. I was number 300/600+ on the waiting list of PBS for it.

I bought these are the 2nd and Charles in Delaware. I love that store better than the one in Hagerstown.

IN THE MAIL:
I would like to thank GalayPress and L. Ron Hubbard for the chance to listen to this new audiobook. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

CURRENTLY READING:
I am still reading Cinder slowly each night. It's not a slow book. I just don't stay up late to read much anymore. I am also starting Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi. It looks good. So I guess I will see.
