Series Overview: Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Series Overview: Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Caster Chronicles series:
1.Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
2.Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
2.5 Dream Dark by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
3. Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
4. Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garica and Margaret Stohl

I do have a review for Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl .
I really loved it when I read it back in 2013. Upon rereading it in February of this year. My thoughts changed. I feel if I would've read this series when it was first released I would have loved it. However reading it now. I just didn't enjoy it as much. Which is why I'm not going to do reviews for the other books in this series. I figured I bindup of my thoughts would be better.

With each installment I read I dreaded picking the books up. I honestly thought I would be in a reading slump. Over all I give the entire series 4/5 stars. I think I will be unhauling the books from my shelves.
Happy Reading, Ashley

Updates

I've been on a reading kick the past few days. I am so excited to share my May Wrap Up with you all tomorrow. I am currently reading Dr. Chase Hudson by Jessica Gadziala. I'm 16% in and loving it. I really loved the first book The Sex Surrogate. Gave me Fifty Shades vibes. I am hoping to finish it before midnight tonight so it can be included in my May Wrap Up.

Bout of Books came at a time I really need help getting back into the flow of reading every day and night. The next one is in August. I will be taking part in it.

I actually managed to get reading done on a very busy weekend. On Friday night I spent time with my family. Saturday was racing night.... ughhh our luck is crap at the moment. I am hopeful my brother will finish a race this coming Saturday. Sunday was more time with my family. Monday was a lazy day.
