The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

Blood on the Bayou - Stacey Jay So I only picked this up because though I was overall disappointed with [b:Dead on the Delta|9467196|Dead on the Delta (Annabelle Lee, #1)|Stacey Jay|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1327890979s/9467196.jpg|14352253], I was sufficiently intrigued by the worldbuilding and protagonist to be curious to see where the author would go with this series (hopefully improving!) Unfortunately, this second installment fell short for me.

This second book is less sleuthing and more characters eventually revealing what they know, discoveries of magical abilities, and a lot of boy drama. Annabelle is a bit of a makeout slut. She won't sleep with all of her boys (not both, but all, there are three of them) but she has some good long kissing scenes with each of them. Sorry, Annabelle, but you've dropped a couple points in my book. It's okay to be confused and take some time to decide what you want, but you should probably not be swapping saliva with multiple guys while you're doing the deciding. But that ending! I seriously thought that whole exchange with Tucker to get him to stay conscious and walk home was a joke, then that epilogue revealed that she actually started sleeping with him? Without officially breaking it off with Cane? Ughhhh

Dropping the series..
