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 …
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: 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

Lectus: The List by Siobhan Vivian
In The List, Vivian integrates the voices of the eight girls who will bear the prettiest and ugliest titles for one whole year. How you’d you react to be named the ugliest girl in school …
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 – …
reviewed Captive in the Dark by C. J. Roberts. October 04, 2012
Captive in the Dark by C. J. Roberts
“ My apologies,” he mocked with a slight forward bow, “What I meant to say is: no pussy’s that good. Though yours does come close.”      I am not into …
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 …
reviewed Lectus: Empty by Suzanne Weyn. September 09, 2012
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 the second book by Jussi Adler-Olsen that I read. I guess I am now   a fan :-)      I liked this one almost as much as I likedThe keeper of loss causes (by …
Living dead girl by Elizabeth Scott
"Once upon a time, I was a little girl who disappeared.   Once upon a time, my name was not Alice.      Once upon a time, I didn't know how lucky I was."   …
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.      …
Ravenous (The Ravening Series Book 1) by Erica Stevens
If you liked that 2010 short-lived television series “V,” you’ll like ravenous.      Aliens come to earth on peace terms sharing their technology and medical advances …
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! …
reviewed The Line. August 30, 2012
The Line
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 …
Lexapros and Cons by Aaron Karo
I think this is the first time that I read a book that I have no idea what is about. I picked because I heard it was funny and I was in that mood. That said, I very much liked the story of Chuck dealing …
I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent #1) by Barry Lyga
Warning: this review has a little bit of spoiler at the end. That said, I love books about serial killers; therefore I had to read this one.      Not much is given in the synopsis …
172 hours on the moon by Johan Harstad
Norwegian novelist John Harstad creates a frightening trip to “explore” moon that includes three teenagers randomly chosen through a lottery.      I’m going …
reviewed Playground by 50 Cent. August 30, 2012
Playground by 50 Cent
Did you know 50 Cent could write? Other than songs, that is. He wrote this novel loosely inspired by his adolescence and with his 14 year old son in mind.   I was very skeptical of …
Amelia Anne is dead and gone by Kat Rosenfield
Is it possible not to like a book perfectly written? This book is superbly written. The prose just flows and the use language, similies, metaphors and any other figures of speech are brilliantly employed. …
Blood wounds by Susan Beth Pfeffer
I’m going to start by saying that Susan Beth Pfeffer is the author of Life as we know it, which I liked; that is why I picked Blood wounds.       Unfortunately, I abandoned …
Railsea by China Mieville
I had read about how great this book is and how Mieville got inspired on Moby-Dick to write it that I thought I was actually going to enjoy it. But nope this one went to the list of ‘abandoned’ …
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
“I want my money back!”  This is what I was thinking while reading this book. The first half of the book can be used as sleep therapy... Now the second half… it is f…ing …
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Meet Hazel, diagnosed with thyroid cancer at 12 and ready to die.   While reading the beginning of the book I felt a “click” with the story that ended when Hazel met Gus at Cancer …
Bless me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya
Did you know that Bless me, Ultima is in the ALA list of banned books for 2008?      Yeap. First published in 1972 the book has been banned from been used in schools …
reviewed Cracked by K. M. Walton. August 29, 2012
Cracked by K. M. Walton
I really liked Cracked. How at the beginning of the story Victor and Bull had only two things in common and then a series of coincidences occurred.      Bull is a bully and Victor …
The girl who couldn't come by Joey Comeau
This is a book of short sex stories that are... let’s say out of the ordinary. I am not into erotica but bought this one by mistake and, well, had to read it :-)       Some …
Skios: a novel by Michael Frayn
The first thing I’m going to say is that Skios would make a pretty funny movie because anything with mistaken identity is funny.      Dr. Norman Wilfred is going to Skios, a …
