The Book of Blood and Shadow - Robin Wasserman I listened to this book, and while I liked the narration, I think I would have liked the book more if I had read it. It was a little slow going for me in the beginning, and then I had a hard time paying attention pretty much every time one of Elizabeth's letters was being read.

I had this solved a long time before Nora - in a way. It was clear to me before Chris died that Max and Adriene were sleeping together. Duh, the "suddenly I hate your boyfriend" fakeout is soo cliche, Adriene. I see right through it. I really like though, how once the mysteries and secrets are solved or revealed they aren't completely rehashed by Nora in the text. She says she should've seen the signs, and certainly we can go back and find them, but she doesn't spell it all out again. I think that shows a lot of respect for the reader.

I waffled between three and four stars, but because I sat out in my car for like, ten minutes after pulling in the driveway last night, four it is.
