I purchased this book because I was unable to find it at any library near me, and I was able to get the 3rd book in the series from Netgalley.  First you can go back and check out my review of the first book in the series, Chasers.  And I must say, I am in […]

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.   With the end of the school year, things get really hectic, especially in my school where we have to pack up all our stuff in our classroom every year.  So, I’ve gotten several books, ebooks, etc., since my last STS post.   I tried to write them down […]

This is an ARC I received last summer at BEA, and I got to meet Ellen Datlow, one of the editors! I started reading it in February, put it in my master bathroom, for when I took bubble baths.  And then I finished the last few stories on Saturday finally.  It’s not that it was […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. This week I’ve picked the fourth and final book in a series, yet I haven’t read the third one yet.  The reason I’ve chosen this is because I’ve decided to wait until the last one […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.   This week I’ve chosen a book that is in keeping with the current zombie trend/obsession of mine.  I got an ARC of the first book last summer at BEA 2012, and read it last […]

I will start by thanking Netgalley and Flux Books for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I also got to read the first in the series, Ripper, as an e-galley.  I was very into the first book because it was supposedly about Jack the Ripper which is a subject that has always fascinated […]

Okay, once again I have been totally wowed and am asking myself why in the world I waited so long to read a book by this author.  Now, I must admit the other series by this author, is about Fey, and I’m not really into the fairies that much.  Not that I haven’t read any […]

Undead by Kirsty McKay

Another cool ARC I got from BEA last summer, and just hadn’t been able to get to until now.  Unfortunately, it’s not autographed.  So that means I’ll take it in and put it on my “check out” shelf in my classroom for my students to borrow. This is a book for people who like zombie […]

Dust and Decay by Jonathan Mab..

I loved Rot and Ruin when I read it a year ago to help pick it for the current Gateway Award nominees.  So last summer when I was at BEA and I got to meet Jonathan Maberry, I got the 2nd book, Dust and Decay, autographed by him.  I had planned to get to it […]
