reviewed The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda. January 06, 2013
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda
The Hunt might just be the winning trilogy of this year.      All books I've read are about vampires living among humans. Well, The Hunt is finally different, is about humans …
This is how you lose her by Junot Diaz
I don’t like short stories at all. But sinceJunot Diaz is Junot Diaz I had to read this collection of short stories if just to say that I have read all of his books (three so far).    …
reviewed Quarantine by Lex Thomas. January 04, 2013
Quarantine by Lex Thomas
I loved this book and can wait to read the next one. I thought half way through that it would be a series because... well, it is too good!      David and his epileptic brother get …
The Temptation by Alisa Valdez
The only temptation I got with this book was to stop reading it. But obviously I must have some kind subconscious line of masochism in me that I actually finished it despite wanting to kill Shane.   …
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
If you watched and liked the TV series “Buffy, the vampire slayer” you are going to love Anna Dressed in Blood.      Cas is a ghost hunter who finds an unusual and …
Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson
Army guys might dig this book, I, on the contrary couldn’t even finish it! It reminds me of World War Z: an oral history of the zombie war because they are both told by different voices …

Lectus: Blood Red Road by Mira Young
I read in a blog a recommendation of Blood Read Road for those who likedGrave Mercy. Why, I wonder? These two books have nothing in common.       In Blood Red Road there’s …
Lectus: Shelter by Harlan Coben
First, this is another great book for guys! It reminds me of I Hunt Killers but they are not similar. It’s just because of the point of view of a male character is so different from a …
reviewed Lectus: Envy by Gregg Olsen. December 01, 2012
Lectus: Envy by Gregg Olsen
The story is very interesting, especially because it was taken from actual events.   In a small town where everyone knows each other, Katelyn kills herself. The doctor rules it as an accident …
Lectus: The Taker by Alma Katsu
I loved the story of The Taker but hated the back and forth between the past and the present!      The story starts in the present when Lanore is brought to the ER of …
Lectus: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
It was interesting at the beginning. Reading about zombies from a zombie's point of view. Why don't they speak? Why do they feed on humans, I mean, on the living?    Very interesting …
Lectus: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
This book is too obvious!       Cliché #1) Echo and Noah dislike each other. Echo thinks Noah is a jerk and Noah thinks Echo is frivolous and cold. 1+1 = 2.   …
Lectus: Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Ten high school students got invited to an exclusive weekend house party on Henry Island. It was supposed to be fun... until one by one they start showing up dead.      Think of the …
Lectus: The Stone Girl by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

reviewed Lectus: The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse. December 01, 2012
Lectus: The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse
Why, in the name of Zeus, mix romance in a story where romance not only its not needed but it doesn't fit?      Many people compare The Forsaken toHunger Games but …
reviewed Lectus: The List by Siobhan Vivian. December 01, 2012

Lectus: Origin by Jessica Khoury
I was so looking forward to reading this book. Pia was born in a secret lab deep in the jungle of the Amazon. She’s born perfect. She doesn’t get sick, her skin is like that of Superman – …
Lectus: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
I am not into fantasy and magic and that kind of genre but Poison Study left a sweet taste in me. I didn’t know it would have magic so I was about to abandon it when I found out.   …
reviewed The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. October 09, 2012
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
The replacement reminded me of Wicked Lovely -- fairies living among us. But inThe Replacement, these are ugly fairies, if fairies at all.       In truth, …

reviewed Faint Echoes of Laughter by Stacey Da.... September 20, 2012
Faint Echoes of Laughter by Stacey Danson
his is the first time I read a sequel to a book about child abuse. Usually, you read about it and finish the book knowing that the child somehow escaped the abuser, but you never know what happened afterwards. …
reviewed This is not a test by Courtney Summers. September 20, 2012
This is not a test by Courtney Summers
This is not a book about zombies (how they die, how they eat, how they kill, how they live, etc.), so if you are gonna read it because of that, you'll be disappointed.      This …
Wish you were dead by Todd Strasser
A few popular kids in a rich high school disappeared. Is somebody out there set to make the rich and beautiful “pay”? That sound like a very pretty interesting mystery to me. And it was. Then …
But I love him by Amanda Grace
I liked But I love him because it deals with an abusive relationship. Ann is a happy and social girl who falls in love with Connor. A boy with family and temper issues but as …

Lectus: Empty by Suzanne Weyn
How would our lives be if the world ran out of fuel? The world is running out of fuel and because of theses there’s food shortage, no electricity, and chaos… I think this is what Weyn was …
The absent one by Jussi Adler-Olsen

This is not a test by Courtney Summers
It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill …
The children and the wolves by Adam Rapp
Told in the voices of the three main characters, Rapp speaks the minds of “Bounce,” a smart but spoiled rich (and bored) girl and her two “monkeys” – low class nobodies …
The Messenger's Handbook by Pamela DuMond
How to start reviewing a book you don’t like? There, I said it from the beginning so you don’t have to read through the end to find that out.      The prologue starts promising, …
Empty Chairs by Stacey Danson
This book is not for the faint of heart. I was taken aback since the very third paragraph. I have read a couple of books on this topic but never felt what I felt while reading this book. I was enraged …
reviewed Arena one by Morgan Rice. August 30, 2012
Arena one by Morgan Rice
I picked this book because some reviews compare it to Hunger Games. But I have to say that the only similarity between these two is that both books are about fighting/surviving for entertainment.   …
Dearly, Departed: a zombie novel by Lia Habel
Read the entire synopsis on Goodreads   Over all, the story is catchy, as in a human falling in love with a living dead other than a vampire! Plus Habel sets Victorian customs in the year …
reviewed : Eden by Keary Taylor. August 30, 2012
: Eden by Keary Taylor
Eden reminds of the movies “I, Robot” and even “Terminator, Judgment Day” as in artificial intelligence/cybernetic matter becoming alive and taking over.      …

The Color of Snow by Brenda Stanley
Unfortunately, this is another one of those books that start promising but fail to hold my interest until the end.   Note: I did not finish reading this book because it was boring me to sleep! …

The Line is the part of the border that divides the country in two separate parts. On this side are Rachel and her mother, they are safe here, along with other people who live on this side of the line. …
The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman
At 3% I was already in love with the "razor-sharp wit" of the characters. This is the kind of language and characters that I like and, when I find them, I just don't want to the book to …
