So, I have been on Christmas break for a little over 3 days, and have already managed to slack off terribly…. I totally forgot to add my first blog post of my promised 7 days of blogs; so today I am going to add two!
Author--> Carrie Need
Release Date--> December 22nd 2009
Captivate is a very exciting and well wrote sequel to the novel Need. I read Need earlier this summer and I devoured it in a little over a day, this being said I was reading between customers at work. However, when I finally got my hands on Captivate (lucky me my local chapters had it on the shelves two days early!!!) I ate up this delicious fairy novel in little over two hours!!! It’s only in the 200’s page wise, but still I was pretty proud of myself!
I didn’t know if I was going to like this book as much as the first installment, cause that’s usually how it works for me, but daresay I think I liked this one more…. One thing that always stands out for me in YA novels, which I think many readers would agree with me on, is the “budding” romance that is always evident in series and I absolutely ADORE the Nick-Zara relationship. It’s a little PG 13 in the first novel but the steam-meter spikes up a little in Captivate.
One thing I hate about some reviewers is that they give away key plot details, so that’s something I strive hard to NEVER do. I will say however that the plot in this book really surprised me! I didn’t think Carrie Jones would have the guts to write a couple major plot derails that Captivate delivers. I had to stop myself from jumping up and down, because you hardly ever see writers follow through with the threat of such a major change of events. It Shall make the third installment very interesting, mark my words!!
I eagerly awaited Captivate and was not disappointed at all, if you’re a lover of YA supernatural plus romances, I would most definitely recommend Carrie Jones Fairy series!
