That's What I'm Talking About

I generally review romance, paranormal and urban fantasy. I tend to pick review books that I want to read, so generally my reviews will be positive. I always give my honest opinion: good, bad, and indifferent. 

 

Note: on my blog I use a letter grading system. I've listed the ratings below. For sites with stars, I have listed the equivalent rating. If I didn't finish the book, I will not rate it with stars.

 

A+  Personal Favorite (5 stars)
A    Loved It (4.5 or 5 stars)
A-   Enjoyed A Lot (4 or 4.5 stars)
B+  Liked It A Lot (4 stars)
B    Liked It -- Recommend (4 stars)
B-   Liked It -- But I had a few small issues (3 or 3.5 stars)
C+  Liked It -- But I had issues (3 or 3.5 stars)
C    Finished It -- Liked some, didn't like some (3 stars)
C-   Finished It -- Liked a little, didn't like a lot (2 or 2.5 stars)
D    Not A Big Fan (2 stars)
E    Don’t Waste Your Time (1 star)

Born of Fire - Sherrilyn Kenyon I'm struggling with this rating and review. Had I read the book independently of the series and not immediately following Born of Night (book 1), I may have given it a similar review and rank of 3.5 stars. However, this book was stylized so much like Born of Night, I felt like I was almost reading the same story. The things that I found slightly annoying and/or cliche in the first book became unbearable at points in the second book. The main characters' inner dialogue was repetitive and the action was too familiar and similar to other stories. I'm taking a break from the series and put some distance in before I pick up the third book.

My rating: 2.5 stars.
