Setting up over here for now whilst I decide how I want to shelve my books online.
A Faint Cold Fear  - Karin Slaughter This just felt quite disappointing. I LOVED the first two books in the series, but this one didn't hook me. The mystery element wasn't exciting and I certainly wasn't racing through to the end. There seemed to be a spark missing, but I could never quite put my finger on what it was. Maybe the whole plot just wasn't good enough, or it should have played out in a different way...I don't know.

Pretty much the only reason I've given it three stars is because I do still enjoy Slaughter's writing and her characters - it felt like I was using the book to catch up on their lives more than anything else (but if I have to read about Lena picking at her scars one more time, I'm going to throw up).

I will definitely still be carrying on with the series because things can only get better (I hope!) but I really missed the gripping stories the author normally provides and it just left me feeling quite deflated.
