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 […]

Nerd Do Well by Simon Pegg My rating: 4 of 5 stars I know this isn’t my usual YA fiction that I review most of the time, as it is a memoir of an adult comic. However, it does fit in with my love of YA in some ways. The fact that I am such […]

I see all the Waiting on Wednesday posts of the people I follow and realize that at some point I need to get back to doing that one. Not sure what I’m waiting on though, that I haven’t already talked about at some time in the past. Maybe next week I can come up with […]

It feels like forever since I’ve blogged! But it’s really only been 2 days. Silly me. Part of the reason is that I started re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to get ready for the movie, and so I haven’t finished any new books to blog about in a few days. Plus, the egalley […]

This was another egalley from Netgalley. This book is actually already published, but I still was interested in reading it. First off, let me say this story was pretty scary! We have two, kind of three, main characters. First are the two sisters Meredith and Heather. They recently lost their father in a car crash, […]

I have to start with when I first started reading this book. I was sitting in the break room at the bookstore I work at reading about the main character, Allison Hewitt, sitting trapped in the break room at the bookstore she worked at. The name of her bookstore was Brooks & Peabody. The name […]
