Way, way behind

I have been so behind on my reviews. So here is a list of what I've been reading and what I thought of these books (kinda a short review here).

The Island by Elin Hilderbrand - I was so looking forward to reading this book. I read The Castaways last year and just loved it. The location of these books makes me want to take a holiday there myself. I enjoyed this book, but I found the ending predictable. The characters were good, though I would have liked to see some changes in a couple them.
This is a good summer read, perfect for sitting on the beach.

The Hunter by L.J. Smith - First time reading one of her books. This is a young adult and the first of a trilogy. I will continue to read this series since I have the other 2 books (part of the Forbidden Games series).

I decided that I should start reading some Christian fiction again. I used to only read Christian fiction but started to be disappointed with some books because they just weren't the kind of books I could sink my teeth into. So I recalled Terri Blackstock and got 2 of her books, Predator and Invention. Once I started reading Predator I remembered that this wasn't one of the authors I really liked. Both were good reads, but there were little things throughout the books that annoyed me. Maybe it was the way police procedures were protraited in these books that didn't seem real to me, or that the characters just lacked depth. I wish that I purchased some Dee Henderson books because I recall the Guardian series to be really good and I couldn't put those books down.
