I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Shinkei (Space Demons Trilogy, #3) by Gillian Rubinstein

Shinkei - Gillian Rubinstein

21/7 - Would definitely not be reading this if it weren't for the fact that I own it. If I hadn't paid money for this (a whole 20 cents), if I had borrowed it from the library, I would be returning this unread without a problem. But, at some time in the past the plot struck my fancy and so here I am, reading it. I found the first book in the trilogy to be average and from the blurb, I expect this to follow pretty much the same path, but I'll receive it worse because I've already read the story in the first book (thank goodness I didn't happen across the full trilogy at the sale, I'd be having a nervous breakdown over returning it unread versus forcing myself to read it). To be continued...


Later - Ugh! I've read like five pages and I'm already wondering whether I'll be able to push myself to keep reading. I think Rubinstein should have ignored all the fans who asked for sequels (she thanked them in her acknowledgements in this book) and went on to something new after finishing Space Demons.  To be continued...


5/8 - I think I might have 'great book' withdrawal, you know the condition where you've read a series of great-to-fantastic books (Buzz and Bubble by Anders de la Motte, Shadow Kiss and Blood Promise by Richelle Mead) and then your next choice is a two or three starrer, but because of the aforementioned withdrawal it becomes a no starrer.  My current strain of 'great book' withdrawal is exacerbated by a bad case of 'I have to get the next book in the seriesitis'.  All I can think of is getting my eyes on Spirit Bound, and the only way I can distract myself until the hold comes in is by reading another great-to-fantastic book, and Shinkei definitely does not qualify.  I would probably continue reading this but for the coincidence of suffering from both debilitating conditions, at the same time.  This could probably end up a 2.5-3 star read, but as it is I have zero interest in continuing this.  It's back to the library booksale for this one.
