I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.


Ascend - Jason Letts, Amanda Hocking The final chapter in the Trylle Trilogy finished strong. Each book got better and better. One of the few things I didn't like about this series was totally resolved in this book in such a fantastic way. Love triangles are never my thing since I always seem to root for the underdog that never wins. Amanda Hocking tied up many loose threads nicely in the end and it left me feeling good when saying goodbye to the characters knowing that things were good for them, or on the right track to good.

I loved the story. I loved the fairy tale telling later on in the book, I thought it brought good light into the situation. It gave the story an Adam and Even feel almost, but I liked it. While there are several heart breaking moments, we get to see the happy ones too. We get to see the good and the bad and it was balanced fantastically.

This is the kind of YA novels I live for. Great story, great characters, awesome adventures, trials and tribulations, and eventually hope. I highly recommend this series!
