How are you liking the Uglies series?

I remember back when I read them the first time, I didn't really like it, but I love going back to them when I have nothing else to read now. razz

1. The Fault in Our Stars (Green) ♥♥♥♥♥1/2
January

Total: 1/35

And so it's not totally arbitrary I'm forcing myself to define the ratings I give...
♥♥♥♥♥♥ = one of the best books ever
♥♥♥♥♥ = great, recommendable
♥♥♥♥ = good but not spectacular, has some faults
♥♥♥ = okay, milquetoast, distracting qualities
♥♥ = pretty terrible
♥ = waste of paper

They're OK. Tally's such an idiot, and I'm not looking forward to Specials. They're a good read to pass time, I agree, just not something I'd want to re-read again, prob. :]

Rereading:The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod Ninth Grade Slays by Heather Brewer
Finished Reading: 1.Incarceron By Catherine Fisher
Incarceron was good. I expected it to be better but I love the characters and the idea of a living prison. I completely ship Claudia and Finn. I found out is was to be a movie though and that upset me a bit. I think I shall ignore its existence. I do greatly look forward to reading the second book.

Finished Rereading: 1.The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer
I have read these books in the past but I did not remember much from the book. I am rereading them so that I can finish the series. I have only read the first two so I need to reread them to read the third one.

Total: (1/100) reread: (1/0)
