I haven't even reached the 100th page (okay, I'm on page ninety-eight, but who cares?) and I already know who the bad guy/stalker/whatever is. :/ I don't like it when it's that easy to figure something out about a book. Maybe it's predictable to me because I've read the author's Blue is for Nightmares series so I know what to look for (maybe? Has anyone else found this?).
I'm going to finish the book, especially since it has been a pretty quick read thus far, but right now I'm a bit unhappy with the story.
On the bright side, Wes and Kimmie are hilarious. I'm really falling for them, I think. Camelia's parents are a bit predictable, but I still like them anyway. Camelia is a pretty solid character so far, as well. We'll see how everything pans out.

I am participating in the 2010 Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi (The Story Siren)! To find out more about this challenge or to sign yourself up, click the link, it will take you to the challenge page. =) This is where I will have my list.
Kristi mentioned this list on twitter. I think I'll use it to start my list.
I've been reading Ice for the past few days and I absolutely tore through the first 150 pages or so, until Cassie's world begins to fall apart.
I still want to finish this book, but what happened was just so very sad to me that I had to set the book down for a little while. I've been taking it slower in the last few chapters that I have read and I really hope that picks up with something happy again; poor Cassie shouldn't have to take so much and be punished by the elements.
Look forward to finishing this and then I can concentrate on the other books I'm reading.
