So, after The Romantics I started to re-read one of my favorite series, The Heir series by Cinda Williams Chima. There are 5 books in the series that I know of, and they are all AWESOME! So, I decided to get more books by her. I checked out a book called Flamecaster that she wrote. It was a different style than what she usually writes, but it seemed kind of bland. It was as if she reused story ideas from the Heir series, but buried them in battles, romance, and politics. And the character interactions seemed to be the same. So while it felt like the Heir series buried under a plot, I still like it and hope there are more in the Heir and Shattered Realms series.
Me and my partner (you can find her page here http://chesirecat.booklikes.com/) have some definite differences on our blog posts. I tend to write more long posts that have a lot to take in. She tends to update with posts that are short, and to the point. She also loves romance novels way more than I do.
One way that I use Booklikes as a way to find books is by following people. If you find friends that have the same interests in books as you do, look on their page. They are bound to have a book on there that you have not read yet. And if they are great posters, they will give a summary and rating of the book that can influence your choice on picking a new book.
