Reading next #15 - it's a wrap

I read the books from my #15 reading pile and here are my thoughts on them.

This is one of my highlights from this reading pile, the story and character development was right on spot, and the story entertained me a lot. This was a very good book in the series and I hope that at least one more book will follow.
The Iron Thorn - Cailtlin Kittridge
I loved reading about the steampunk world the author created and thought that all characters were fascinating. But the magical beings in the book were not the kind I like reading about. Right now I'm not sure if I will go on with the trilogy or not.
Shadow's Claim - Kresley Cole
Once again I had issues with the world building and the characters, I guess it's time to acknowledge that Kresley Cole's adult books are not for me.
Unveiled - Courtney Milan
The book was nice while I read it, but it did not leave a lasting impression on me. Plus I had some issues with the main characters.
What's left of me - Kat Zhang
The premise of the book was fascinating, but there was something missing in the story to truly fascinate me. This was an ok books for me.
Splintered - A.G. Howard
I was fascinated by this book and loved the special weirdness of it. Learn more about my feelings in my "Good books: Get lost in wonderland" post.
Level 2 - Lenore Appelhans
I wanted to love the book, but unfortunately I did not enjoy it. The characters seemed to be quiet flat, I could not believe in the world the author created and could also not believe in the emotions and the supposed love story. Everything felt so flat to me. :( I will not go on with the trilogy.
The Farm - Emily McKay
I had issues with the writing style of the book and the way the author created her characters. Both made it hard for me to get lost in the story and to really enjoy it. This was another ok book for me.
Crimson Frost - Jennifer Estep
I read the book as soon as I got it and really enjoyed the story. Learn more about my feelings about the book in my "Good Books: Magical elves and dark mythology" post.
Scherbenmond - Bettina Belitz
After weeks I finally finished the book and enjoyed it a lot. At times the book felt a bit too long, but I still liked the story and the new developments. And I'm very excited to read the final book in the trilogy.

Puh, this was one big reading pile, towards the end I was actually a bit tired of it. Now I'm happy that I got through the pile and that some books were really good. And I'm excited to start with a new pile of books.
