Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub

Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub

Well, I struggled through this book at first. We start out from the viewpoint of a bird, and it kind of stays like that for what I feel is too long a time. I always wonder how does more than one person write a book. In this case, I almost wonder if the parts that… Read more »

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Funny thing about this book, I had ordered an advanced readers copy of this book from a Shelf Awareness email, and set it aside with my other tons of “to-read” books. Forgetting about it, I saw the book sitting on a table in the break room at the bookstore and picked it up to read…. Read more »

Under the Dome by Stephen King

Under the Dome by Stephen King

Book Review 50: Bringing the Boy Home by N.A. Nelson

Book Review 50: Bringing the Boy Home by N.A. Nelson

Finally I am done with the Mark Twain nominees. This was an interesting change from the other books. The main character is Tirio, who is from an unknown tribe in the Amazon called the Takunami tribe. This is pretty much all fiction, the author says she made most of it up, only the fact that… Read more »
