Review ~ Wanderlust by Ann Aguirre


TITLE: Wanderlust
AUTHOR: Ann Aguirre
COPYRIGHT: 2008
TYPE: Sci/Fi ~ fantasy
PAGES: 312
SERIES:1. Grimspace
2. Wanderlust

REASON FOR READ:Read book one and loved it thought I should see how the series turns out since book 4 is coming out this month.

SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
Broke and unemployed, "Jumper" Sirantha Jax accepts a diplomatic mission for the government—only to find herself up against Syndicate criminals, man-eating aliens, and her own grimspace-weakened body

 
THOUGHTS/OPINION:This one took me longer to get into then the other one and I can't place why it did. I enjoyed it and about half way through it really started flying for me.
The most exciting part for me happened at the end so once I reached that last 3rd I couldn't put it down.

THINGS I LIKED:
- I like that Jax is growing. Nothing gets my goat then a character that never grows or changes.
- The nice little bit with Jax's mom was very interesting I won't say more b/c it was a great part that I really enjoyed.
- I love that new characters were introduced in a way that was not just a simple plot deviced but was used in a way that flowed and made sense.

THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE:
- I hate that Jax is always thinking on death or how she will die. I know that is part of her morbid self but still after a while it got old. But then something wonderful happen and she got a reason to live.
- I really hate how she focuses so much on Kai and how much she misses him while at the same time claims how much she loves March. I understand you might have some feelings but I think its cruel to keep bringing up the dead to a man you supposely love.
- Hate what happens to March no I won't go into details but UGH!!!! (email me if you wish to discuss)

Are you keeping it or passing it on? After borrowing this book from Coffcat I decided to pick up the whole series. So yeah I'm keeping it.

Would you recommend this book? Uh yeah!!!

Favorite Quotes: Hold on to your pants there are a lot

“Big deal,” I mutter. “Everything makes me nervous. It’s a wonder I haven’t developed a tick.”
“You have,” March puts in ever helpful. “Your left eye sort of-”
“Thanks, baby you’re a gem.”
Page 8

“You alright?” If I had a credit for every time March has asked me that question, I wouldn’t be mourning my missing money.
Page 28

If the Psychs can be trusted – which they can’t- I suffer from borderline paranoid dysfunction. I suspect everyone of treachery and subversive plots against me. But like the old adage goes: Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.
Page 43

I wish I had a penis.
March’s amusement ripples through me. Yeah that’s going on the list of things I never want to hear again. I grin, knowing I’m not going to explain the contex.

  2. Tracy, sadly enough I haven't read the Ava novels I own the first one but haven't gotten around to it. I got sucked into this one first and haven't been able to put it down.
