I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Currently reading

Nice enough, but I couldn't get into the protag's voice.

Balance - M.R. Forbes

 

It was a solid urban fantasy with a lot of hints to classic literature and also most common genre cliches regarding angels and demons and vampires and so on.

 

I liked that it did the title honor: It was about balance. About the good guys not always being good. Unfortunately it wasn't funny. I so like humor, sarcasm, banter etc. in my urban fantasy. 

 

What also didn't work well for me was the protag, Landon. I didn't have a clear picture of him in my mind until the end of the book. 

 

On the pro side is definitely the action part - it was well done.

Also the plot was strong and well thought out.

 

Unfortunately I am not so hooked that I will read the sequel for sure, have to think about it.
