Haven’t done one of these in awhile, again, school really cuts back on time. Most of these are going to be adult novels, and I believe I’ll have one with some more teen later this week. First is Stories for Nightime and Some for the Day by Ben Loory. This book’s title first caught my […]

Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick My rating: 4 of 5 stars I got to read this as an e-galley from Netgalley.com, provided by Egmont USA. Our main character is Alex. She has a tumor in her brain, that is probably not able to be cured, even after some new type of treatment, that is these […]

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater My rating: 4 of 5 stars I waited a little extra long to read this because first I had to wait for this author to come to town when I would actually get the copy I had to buy in order to get into the event. But it was well worth […]

Okay, the last part of this volume of the books I see when I work at the store. Just in time too, as I work again tonight! And as it is a Tuesday and there will be new books out, I’m sure I’ll find even more! These books are mostly adult fiction or maybe some […]

This is the 2nd part to my regular posts about the books I see when working at the bookstore that I want to read. As I said in part 1, this is actually a couple weeks’ worth of books, so this part will be the 6 teen books on my lists. First is Between by […]

So I’m waaaaaay behind on doing one of these. I have 16 books to talk about. So I’m going to do it in 3-5 parts. I’ve sorted the books out based on age first. Then within the teen books and adult books I have 6 or more in each category. So those two may get […]

Beyond the Grave by Mara Purnh..

Posted August 14, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in / 0 Comments

Beyond the Grave by Mara Purnhagen My rating: 4 of 5 stars I got to read this early as an e-galley through NetGalley from Harlequin. I’m so mad though because I forgot there was a 2.5 in the series called Haunting the Night and so I didn’t read it before. And it’s so stupid because […]

Aftertime by Sophie Littlefield My rating: 3 of 5 stars I got this book as an ARC from the bookstore I work along with the sequel, which I haven’t read yet. But I will soon, because I really did enjoy this book. This is another zombie story. But I like that we have started in […]
