I liked this books more than the first one. The plot moved faster and there was a lot of action. There is nothing spectacular about the story or plot line but the book is good for what it is and I will definately be reading more of this series.

I decided to allow myself to read fanfiction as well as reagular books - as long as the fanfiction is over 500 PDF pages. So, the first book for me this year is a Harry Potter fanfiction called Possession by Jade Tatsu.

This story was pretty good. The main idea  was fairly cliche, but the actual story line was pretty original. 

Before I get in to that I should warn you first that this is a slash story.

Anyways, the main idea is the typical HP/LV idea. Harry is abused by his family and no one on the light side helps him. The only one to save him from the abuse is Voldemort. Harry falls in love with Voldemort and joins the Dark Side. However, they have to do it in secret at first so only a select few know he is dark.

The main plot however is more original. Voldemort is not just a Dark Lord, he is THE Dark Lord - and the Serpent Lord. Harry has the gift of Godric Gryffindor and is referred to as the Shadow Lord. 

I like this story because it involves many different things. There are the vampires, the warewolves, and a rebellion on both sides. It also has and "I don't know what I want to do" Snape. 

I didn't like this story because it seems like the author forgot words at times so the sentences didn't make sense. However, this was easy to fix if you just added your own words lol.

There is a sequel called Weapon, that I am waiting for an update on, but she hasn't updated yet. She seems fairly consistent however so I'm not worried.

50 Book Challenge on GoodReads

 This year I'm doing a regular 50 Book Challenge as well as a m/m or m/m/f 50 Book Challenge...

Sign up is still going and you can  choose to sign up and add books to your list or you can organize all the books. Books have to largely be centered in the specific US State.

It's on GoodReads but has some NFSW images...there's also free stories occasionally. I ended up on there since I write on and off....and I finally have time to do so.
