Review: The City by Dean Koontz

First, thanks to Random House/Bantam Dell and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  Dean Koontz will always be one of my all time favorite authors.  And while a couple books ago I was a bit disappointed, that changed with the last one, Innocence, and now this one, The City, has […]

Review: Eat, Brains, Love by Jeff Hart

This is a book I added to my library request list when I got back from BEA a few weeks ago.  I was lucky enough to get to meet the author and get a copy of the second book, Undead with Benefits, so I figured I’d better go ahead and read the first one.  It […]

Feature and Follow Friday – June 27th, 2014

Review: Just Like the Movies by Kelly Fiore

First I have to say thank you to Netgalley and Bloomsbury for allowing me to read an e-galley of this book.  And this was actually the perfect choice to read after my last read, Grasshopper Jungle.  Because as dense and intense of a read as that was, this was a nice, light, fluffy, easy to […]

Review: Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith

I gave in and put my name on the waiting list at the library for this one.  I’d just been hearing so much about it, and it really does sound like my type of story from the synopsis.  I was pretty excited when it finally came in for me to check out two days before […]

Review: Conversion by Katherine Howe

First, thanks to Edelweiss and Putnam Juvenile for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  I have read the adult novel by this same author, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, and it was also very interesting.  I don’t think I have that review on this blog that I can link back to […]

Review: Erased (Altered #2) by Jennifer Rush

Hi everyone!  I have of course been kind of out of it sine I had surgery on Wednesday.  I actually finished this book Tuesday night, late, but haven’t had time review it since then.  Doctor said the surgery went just fine and I am healing well.  However the pain medicine is making me sleepy, so […]

Wishlist Wednesday June 18th, 2014

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Pen to Paper Blog, in which we feature a book we can’t wait to get off of our wish list and onto our shelves!  Today I go into surgery, so I’m posting some books I’d really like to have that are already out, but I am too broke […]
