Last bit of discussion 
The Wish List
before we move on
to July's book...

How did you feel about the relationship/romance between
Kristen & Tennyson?
Enough? Not enough? Just right?

Would you recommend this book to others?

Would you read the next book in the series?

Please share your rating of this book...

It has been so much fun hosting this month...
thanks for playing along and sharing your thoughts & comments!!

Well, towards the end it got much better. I know the relationship was just developing in the early part of the book, but I honestly did not want to see them together for some reason. I think it had to do with her calling him a troll all the time. I seriously pictured him as some ugly troll-y dude and didn't feel a THING for him. Towards the middle when she finally accepted who she was and who he was, it got much better, and more interesting!
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a cozy mystery/romance, I thought it had really funny moments and some very lovable characters! I really did enjoy this book, but I'm giving it a 3 out of a 5 rating, just because it took so freaking long for me to get into it, lol! In all honesty, and to give the author a break, I did just finish reading book 1 of Demonica (by Larissa Ione) right before starting this book, and that book had me so engrossed that I thought about it for days afterwords. I think I was still craving more of that style book, lol! So it's no fault of the authors if I didn't enjoy The Wish List as much as you guys, haha!

I liked their relationship. I didn't mind their beginning annoyance with each other though it was slightly juvenile but some relationships start like that. Mine did, but I was 16 so there's a reason for that. I wish there was more romance in the book but I always do. I know, I'm horrible!

I would recommend this book to others.

I am going to keep reading this series. I also think that Zack and Callie need a book of their own.

I give this book 4/5 stars. :)

Thanks for hosting this month, Brookie!

When Kristen first referred to Tennyson as a troll and as he was described by the author, I formed a mental picture of him as Hagrid from Harry Potter! I couldn't get that image out of my mind, LOL! I'm still not sure how I feel about their romance, but apparently it worked for them. :) I guess I wanted more depth to it. I really wanted more of Callie!

Having said that, I did enjoy the book. Wouldn't say I LOVED it, but It was a quick, fun read. I'm with Amber on this one: I give it a 3.

Does the next book have the same characters? If so, I would read it.

Thanks for hosting, Brooke!

Girls.. I completely agree with the TROLL thing... I didn't envision a hunky stud that she should fall head over heels for! Their relationship did grow on me throughout the book, but like Ashley... I would have liked to see it develop more. It was not really enough in my opinion. I also felt that it wasn't a very 'deep' read, but it was a fun little book for a quick summer read. I rated it 4/5 on Goodreads when I first finished... I would say compared to other books I've read lately, it should be more like 3/5... Cute, but didn't have me staying up all hours of the night to finish it.

The troll thing didn't bother me, I kind of liked the banter back and forth. I will read the second book, and I would like to hear more about Zack and Callie too. I'd probably give it a 4/5 if for nothing else than the original story line in a genre that can be hard to come by. :)

I didn't mind the troll thing.I wished there relationship would have had a bit more to it. It wasn't very steamy. But over all I like it.

I would recommend it to someone else.

I'll give it a 4/5 too. I've already read the 2nd book and am waiting for the next one. Maybe the author could continue with a 4th book with Zach and Callie.

Thanks Brooke for hosting!

Heather said...

Oh thanks Amber for the book suggestion you listed I'm going to go try it out. Looks HOT!

I like the romance between them and I didnt mind the troll name calling as I still pictured him HOT! LOL. I would reccomend this book as it was a great light fun read, Im not sure yet if I will read the next book.
Thanks for doing an awesome month of hosting Brooke :)
