"Finding Infinity" as described by Colin... "Fine Charlie." Colin says dropping his hands in defeat. "Here's what I want. I want everybody to back off and let me play football. I want you to go back to practicing medicine because I'm ready for you to be happy again - not this forced shit that you keep trying to sell me. I want Brad to get his house finished because I'm tired of listening to his DIY project updates. I want Jenny to decide on a hair color. I want Aiden and Rachael to either figure their shit out or leave each other alone, because Aiden's chick drama is annoying. I want Mark to quit trying so hard to be my buddy again. I want my parents to get off my back about us living in sin. I want you to pick a date to marry me. That's what I want. What am I going to get? None of it, because I have to do another interview to try to patch the gaping wound that is my life with a Band-Aid." This is book three of the "Infinity Series." To read them in order, please start with "Falling Into Infinity" and then "From Now Until Infinity."

Three Feather Rating

Picture you have like, this big juicy Cinnamon Roll in front of you, yeah? Warm icing is just toppling over the edge of it, running along the flaky edges and gathering a warm pool of sugary goodness below. Now, add a generous dollop of Ketchup, Mustard, and Mayo on that thang. Add some screws and nails to the mix while you’re at it.

THIS is how I felt about the third book of the Infinity series. It was just a whole bunch of unecesary-ness that did absolutely nothing to add to the marvelous first two books of the series. I hate that because they were so good and I was actually consdiering re-reading this series again. But now…. Yah. No. 

This third book…. just didn’t seem necessary…

There’s  one final book to this series you guys but I doubt if I’ll read it. I think what this series and I need right now is a temporary separation.  I HAS A HUGE SAD, YAWL. 

WHERE THE PLOT AT, THOUGH??

I’m still scratching my head, trying to remember what the heck this book was about… it lacked drama and mystery the previous two books had. You know how some authors will just continue a book series because fans BEGGED for it? That can be a good thing but sometimes, that’s not what’s best. Sometimes, it could be better as a standalone or a shorter series instead of drawing out the series a few more books. 

AGAIN. SO MANY SADS, YAWL.

I won’t get into the mechanics of what this book is about.. just know that there is more of the same,  more cliches, more romance that doesn’t quite fit, and even more cliches. 

BUT, THEN…. SOMETHING AMAZE-BALLS HAPPENED.

THE. ENDING. That was the exact moment the spark came back in the book. My heart started beating fast in my chest again because for once I legit had no idea what the heck was going on.

AND. IT. WAS. GLORIOUS.

TRUE GLORIENESS I TELL YOU ALL.

I truly had no idea where the story was going to go. I felt cold, nervous, and seconds from just flipping to the end to see what was going to end.. And THAT, franz, is how you end a book.

BOOM.


Now it's your turn 2

This book review went from super “EW” about this book to “MEH.” So, I’m not sure how I should feel. Has this ever happened to you guys? Have you ever been so into a book that you were so anxious to read it that it just didn’t DO IT for you? What did you guys do?

  1. Where have I been and why don’t I know this series??!! So lame that after two awesome books this one felt completely unnecessary. I mean, what happened? How can an author go from that to this, y’know? At least the ending brought on some feels. Maybe she’s just saving it all up for the 4th book. Yeah, that’s it. The 4th book is going to knock your socks off! 🙂

    • OMG, T! You’ve never read this series yet?? I can’t believe you haven’t either since you’re well-read with the NA genre!♡ you need this series in your life! Forget all the crap I talked about in this post and just go for it! I can’t wait to see what you think of it!♡♡♡♡ xoxoxo!

    I’ve read series that went past their prime and into disappointing just like I’ve read duos or even trilogies that should have just been one book without being drawn out like that. I’ve also read books that were not doing well only to have a fab ending to make me confused as to how I felt about it after all. I’m still not sure if some of these was worth reading or I was just filling time. Confusing stuff, LOL.

  3. I don’t think I’ve heard of this series before Kei, but it sounded incredible… Up until this book. It sounded like it wasn’t needed at all and filled with unnecessary drama. What a shame. At least the ending sounded like it was semi worth the read, is it setting it up for the next book in the series? I’m tempted to try book one. I might nab a copy and see what you think of the next one. Wonderful review Kei and sorry you couldn’t have enjoyed this more <3

    • Oh. Yes. The writing was awesome, the characters and the drama were spot on without it being too much. It’s just this one I didn’t feel was worth adding to the series because it didn’t offer anything new, but that isn’t to say you shouldn’t enjoy this series because IT’S AMAZE-BALLS.

    What did I do? I got depressed, went to the next book on my list crossing my fingers frantically it wouldn’t be dissapointing too. I need some time to get over crushing disappointments of books I have been all GIMME about and then they are meh.

    Ah…. I know this feeling. And I really dislike it when a book is like that – when you kinda know another sequel shouldn’t have been written and they are pretty much just dragging things out. But hey, at least the ending was worth waiting for!
