Waiting On Wednesday: Endure by Carrie Jones

Hello, Waiting on Wednesday people! Thanks to Breaking the Spine for hosting this meme-- I love seeing what everyone else wants to read, even if it is making my "to read" list a LOT longer.  This week I (somewhat sheepishly) offer you Endure, the final book in the Need series by Carrie Jones.
Need (Need, #1)

"Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends; she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king?" (Good Reads)

Alright, so this is how it is. Book 1 Need I read over Christmas, chosen purely by the cover (sparkly lipstick? why not?) and it was pretty good. The supporting characters are great, with crazy best friend Issy to the shapeshifters to sassy grandma shapeshifters. WHAT, NANA IS A TIGER!?!? great news. The whole setting of Maine in the winter was also atmospheric and Zara's weird obsession with phobias is kinda cool. But the evil-blue-skinned-pixies...MEH. Nonetheless, once I started, I read the next two with mixed feelings. I mean seriously, teenage boys do NOT lean over in art class and say "It will be hard to be just your friend.” I am fairly certain about this. I might be against the second and third books because Zora's boyfriend called her "babe" and it just didn't translate to the written page. I cringe! 

Endure (Need, #4)
ANYWHO I have now committed the hours to books 1-3 in which Zara fights pixies with her hunky wolf boyfriend, loses said boyfriend to warrior afterlife, becomes a pixie herself, and goes and gets him back. So how will the pixie war turn out that book three leaves these people facing? I am going to find out! (when May rolls around, that is).  What's your Waiting on Wednesday?


  1. Great pick! I haven't read any of her books, but I really like the covers.

    Stop by my WoW

  2. I read the first one but I didn't enjoy it. I'm pretty much one of the few. The covers are gorgeous though. ;)

    1. I know, the covers are really the best part! But at this point I feel like I am going to finish the series on principal! Thanks for stopping by :-)

    2. I haven't read any of these yet, but I've heard great things about the series.
