    1. The first book in the series, 'Runes' was good, but failed to leave me wanting more. As far as the story goes, it was okay. I enjoyed the fact that it was different from most of the paranormal romances that I read. That being said, I never felt a strong connection to the characters. I wanted more emotion and more depth. I kept waiting for some sort of bond to form. It never happened.Largely, I think this was a result of the fact that I'm not a member of the targeted audience. The story was clear [...]


    2. I've noticed that most of the YA series I read are the same.Twilight, Lux, Hush Hush. girl in high school meets bad boy.heated arguments turn into heated romancee only thing that changes is the supernatural aspects this book was just like that.but I quite liked it. even though its like all of those other books and is quite cliche. it was well written and I definitely enjoyed the characters and I can definitely see myself falling more in love with the seriesso the ending freaking killed me so I' [...]


    3. This book has been popping up everywhere Booktube, UK list, and was even recommended to me several times on . However, I'm a little confused as to why this book has so much growing hype surrounding it. I have a lot of issues with Runes. This is a Frankenstein's monster version of Twilight, Lux, and The Mortal Instruments (very heavy on the Twilight). It's this freak creation that shouldn't have been brought to life.This review is going to be messy and unorganized, but I don't feel like putting t [...]


    4. Puedes leer la versión en español de esta reseña aquí:spanglishbookblog.wordpress2.5 or 3 StarsThis was another buddy read with my fabulous and kick-ass friend Becca This isn't our first book about paranormal romance, magic, YA or love triangles, just so you knowd we had, almost all the time, something to rant about. It was sad because we thought we would really like it, after all, who doesn't like magic? I mean, is magic!However, the magic wasn't the problem here, the characters were witho [...]


    5. It's like if you take the Lux series, and then marry it with The Mortal Instruments, that's in the same neighborhood as this book. I know that's clear as mud, but it really is like those two books had a love child book, and Runes was it.I do have to give props- urban fantasy has become a harder genre to write in. It's so saturated, that it becomes difficult for some new books to really stand out. Runes does manage to stand out. Honestly, just the cover alone piqued my interest, the blurb sounded [...]


    6. **Edit: Guys, it's with great sadness that I announce the passing of Ednah Walters :( I just found out through a Facebook fan group, and thought I'd pass on the crappy news :(((It was really good, even though I wasn't as emotionally invested in it as I would have liked.It's been a while since I've read this but I should have written that dang review ages ago. Now I don't remember anything of significance.I remember enjoying it well enough. AND it's free on , so give it a shot, I'd say :)


    7. Once again Ednah has upted the bar with this new paranormal romance.Characters that you will surely swoon over and a fantastic new series that will take off with a bang.The storyline is original, the plot intriguing, and I was eager to find out what was going to happen at every page turn. A few twists and turns to keep the reader on the edge of there seat.A solid plot, and a great paced read, I can guarantee for all those who have read Ednah's Ya series, this one will be your very favourite ** o [...]


    8. To see full review click here.Welcome to an episode of book diagnosis with the help of a slightly modified version of the scientific method, I.Dr. MJ* will diagnosis what the fuck is wrong with Runes.Question: What the fuck is wrong with Runes? The summary seems pretty good. Norse gods and YA. Whatever can go wrong with that.okay, I know a lot. But Norse gods. That's pretty bad ass for the most part (at least when Tom Hiddleston and Christ Hemsworth are involved).Research: Consisted of reading a [...]


    9. The book in general is ok, although there is nothing in it that would make me recommend it.Runes is a mix of Twilight , the Mortal Instruments and the Soul series. As a result, it seems like a weak copy of other YA series, cliché and unoriginal. The female MC was very unlikable. I really hope no teenager that reads this, thinks Raine’s way of acting is worthy of being imitated. Raine was selfish, immature and quite inconsiderate. Overall, all the characters lacked appeal.The romance was terri [...]


    10. Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.For more reviews from me, go to thisisjustabookblog.tumblr They say start the year as you mean to go on, so I guess that means I'll be reading bad books and writing harsh reviews about them. It's not that I want to be mean. I understand and appreciate that someone has spent a lot of time and effort and energy writing this book. It's just that this book really irritated me, in many ways, and I wouldn't be a very good rev [...]


    11. RATING: 4 HeartsI am always looking for original ideas and unique storylines when it comes to YA paranormal romance reads, and every once in a while I do find that one book that takes me completely by surprise. Runes by Ednah Walters is exactly that book. With its every flip of the page, the story is brimming with mythology, romance, and intriguing twists and turns – it definitely made for an addictive read. Aside from a few minor disputes, Runes left a distinct impression on me, and I found m [...]

    13. Raine Cooper is a typical teenager. She is on the swim team and she has her two best friends, Cora and Eirik. She’s coping with some stuff (I won’t go into because I don’t want to give much away). Other than that, her life is pretty normal. She’s waiting for Eirik to finally ask her out so they can move beyond friendship.Enter Torin St. James. Torin moves in next door – into the house her friend Eirik used to live in. He’s hot, arrogant, a bad ass with a faint English accent and ridi [...]


    14. You can read this review and more on my blog:I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for and honest review.I have had this book downloaded on my Kindle for over a year, and I am kicking myself for waiting so long to read it. This was YA paranormal romantic perfection.Raine was my favorite type of heroine. She was cute, funny, snarky, girly, and strong. Her Life is pretty good when the story begins. Her relationship with her mother was the perfect blend of [...]


    15. This review and more at my blog Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars Series book: Yes Will I read the next book: YesI read the last few paragraphs of Runes like fifty times and then I cussed enough to make my mamma cry. When I first started reading it, the Lux series came to mind. Then I got into the story and there was totally different mythology. But again at the end I was just as frustrated as I was at the end of Opal (Book three of the Lux series). I just wanted to scream. You can't do that! You cannot cr [...]


    16. Ednah Walters has done it again! Lord I can't get enough of her books and the way she writes. I just love her to pieces and Runes was a FANTASTIC no PHENOMENAL READ! I could not put it down. Once I started reading it I could not put it down and I was so engrossed in Runes that I did not cook or clean or do homework no way it was just me and Raine and Torin!Raine is having a rough go with things in her life. Her father has disappeared and her mother is acting weird and to make matters worse her b [...]


    17. I really enjoyed this read, but first I want to thank Edna for sending me this book. Which I won in a giveaway contest on Instagram.This books took me by surprise, it was captivating from the very biggining. An easy, fun and catchy read. I couldn't stop reading it until the very end. It had a good plot, with gray charactersTorin is perfectThat ending was omg I need to know what happens ASAPThanks so much for introducing me to this cool series Edna


    18. Runes is one of those books that spent way too long sitting on my Kindle. At the time when I downloaded it, I was intrigued. However, when I finally had the chance to read it the feeling had lessened. Thus, I put the book aside until the feeling of interest returned. Although the interest did return, it was never quite to the original level.For me, I feel as though Runes is a story made up of far too many young adult tropes. There is a good story to be found, but it is buried under layers of cli [...]


    19. (Review also on the blog)Let me start this review by honestly saying that I normally skip paranormal books. There was something about Runes that really drew me in though, a combination of the title and the (minor) mention of mythology. The book wasn’t a hit with me, nor was it especially memorable. But there is something special in Runes and the potential it has as a YA series. It was a lukewarm novel, at least up until it reached the last third where it became slightly more interesting to me. [...]


    20. First thoughts after reading:WOW. This is a first. I totally LOVE the cliff-hanger! Seriously, that ending is GENIUS! I started to get bored towards the end and thought it would go down the same way, but then. BAM. Walters hit me with THAT. Truly brilliant! It will make the second book SO. MUCH. MORE. INTERESTING! What an amazing twist. I still can't believe that happened! I never would have guessed that! I need Immortals ASAP! Rating:Okay, this was really hard. I loved the first 70 or so percen [...]


    21. Good book, I enjoyed it, though not as much as I thought I would. Oh, well!Full Review from Blog:When I first started reading Runes, I thought that I'd really enjoy these books, because Raine was a lot like me, a bookish person! But as it went on, it got pretty dark, darker then I like, so while I enjoyed these books, and like them, I didn't love love love them. Which is too bad!I enjoyed the whole mythology with the Norns, which sound vague familiar from other books with Norse mythology, and ha [...]


    22. ***Received a free copy via netgalley.I've been busy reading lots of new adult and adult genre books for the past few months, I forgot how refreshing and fun it is to read a Y.A book. I immensely enjoyed reading Runes, it brings out the girly girl in me lol. The moment Raine met Torin *swoon, I knew that I'm going to absolutely add Torin to my book boyfriends list, gawd I don't even care about Eirik lol, team Torin all the wayif and if there is even a competition.Torin was the new guy next door, [...]


    23. After begging; asking Author for a copy of Runes, as the synopsis intrigued me and I've to read it, I got it. * This is my honest review * I LOVED IT!!!! I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I'm excited!!!!The story had suspense and the writing intrigued me and kept me going but towards the end I didn't want it to end at all! The banter between Raine with silent E and Torin St James (I love his full name) was funny, made me laugh and love them. There is Cora, I just love her quirks [...]


    24. Another great book. :DThers memory loss, mystery,funnyness,friendship:D pluss its a pretty short book so its right for a book you read while waiting for other books.A few things that bugged me:As a norwegian myself I just dident belive the norwegian exchange student named Andris, we have Andreas, Andre,Anders, but I have never ever met a Andris.It was never explained in the book, I geuss if it was explained it could have been easier to understand.Ditto, with the girl named maliina. We have malin [...]


    25. Favorite Line “Make my sacrifice mean something.”Man I want myself a Torin PLEASE!! That being said I can honestly say I have never read a story like this!Valkyrie (OMG my favorites), Runes, and of course immortals that are just amazing. Well some are jerks but you can't have a good story with out them!Raine is your every day teenager, she's a swimmer, has her friends, her first boyfriend Eirick, and her best friend Cora. The only thing that is wrong with her life is her father has disappear [...]


    26. Well wasn't this just a nice little surprise. I really wanted to dislike this book, given the over-saturated paranormal YA fantasy market, but I simply couldn't. The beginning was slightly clumsy, but very quickly the kinks were ironed out and I was drawn into the story. I highly recommend Ms. Walters for fans of Julie Kagawa, PC and Kristin Cast, and the tv series Lost Girl. You'll enjoy the plot driven fantasy and cliff hanger ending.


    27. Did not finish.After starting this book many times I could not get myself to keep on trying.Unfortunately it did not interest me, and it couldn't keep me engaged long enough to keep trying to read it.


    28. This book may need some work, but I really enjoyed it! It was funny, unique (though some elements still remain unoriginal), and enjoyable.


    29. ***** 5 Cranky Stars *****If I could give Runes more than five stars, I would. Recommended for young readers (around the seventh grade level based on vocabulary and content), the characters are well developed and the main character, Raine, has to deal with many changes in her life, including magical events.Raine shows a strength of character at seventeen that many adults don't. It also delves into the Norse mythology, which might be a great introduction to a person’s heritage. It has action an [...]


    30. Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book.What's the cardinal rule for bibliophiles? Don't judge a book by it's cover.I know that! I do. It's justwell, I do it all the time. An awesome cover draws me in, and a cheesy cover repels me. I can't tell you how many times I passed Runes over in favor of another book, simply because the cover made me think I would be reading the equivalent of a B movie. I mean, what is up with that dude's bangs?! Are they feathered or something? *shudder* Let me tell [...]
