No Surrender Soldier by Christine Kohler

Hey everyone, just finished reading No Surrender Soldier, which was sent to me by the very generous author, and It has taken me a while to read it because of school and other things, but I have finally gotten the chance to read it, and it is about time to tell you about it. (you all have waited long enough for a new review) Meet Kiko, who's brother Sammy is off fighting in the war of Vietnam, in the year 1972 (i think). His Tatan (grandfather) is suffering from delusions from the second world war, and at one point attacks someone in their tourist shop, accusing him of 'raping' Kiko's mother. During the course of the story you see the point of view of Seto, a soldier from World War 2 who has been hiding out in a cave since the war, and is convinced that the war is still going on, and that he is in danger. As time goes on Kiko tries to come to terms with his Tatan's crazy behaviour, deal with his brother being away in war and not knowing how he is

Week Update

Hey everyone, I haven't had a lot of chances to read this week, but I have a lot of books on the go so hopefully I will have them all done for next week. I hope everyone is taking advantage of their local libraries and getting involved in the reading community online and in your work/school environment. Take care and have a good week. - K 

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Good day to you, my fellow readers. I have just been informed that there is a possibility that this book, Paranormalcy, will be being made into a movie. So, in light of the good news, I thought I would give a review to the book, even though I read it a year or two ago. I loved the book, and I loved the cover, and best of all, it is a trilogy, my favourite! Evie is your everyday teenager living in a secret lab that deals with Paranormals. What are Paranormals you might ask? Well, a paranormal are anything from vampires to ghosts, to anything that isn't classified as 'human'. This lab hunts down rogue paranormals and 'tags' them, and then gives them jobs where they can live their lives and not have to pose a danger to the humans. Now, Evie is basically human, but she is special in a few ways. One, she can see past the glamour of paranormals and can see what they really are when they are trying to hide. Two, she seems to have captured the attention of one of the

Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Hey everyone! No, I didn't read this book this week, I read it a few years ago when it first came out, but it is one of my favourites and I thought I would get the review for it up on my site so that you who haven't read the book yet know what's up! Meet Nora Grey, an average girl who writes a blog, and wants to do well in school and hang out with her only friend Vee. Too bad for her Coach has decided that she can't sit beside her best friend in their human reproduction class, and she has to sit beside the silent exchange student who doesn't want to help her pass the class. Okay, so he does want to help her pass the class, but he wants a lot more than that. He enjoys using any moment he can to get under her skin, and she hates him just as much as she finds herself being drawn to him. But there is something strange about the way he keeps showing up everywhere she goes. After Nora is attacked she begins to suspect that something certainly isn't right with h

The First Days by Rhiannon Frater

Hey everyone, how's it going? This week I read The First Days, and I have to say, I am a bit horrified. Don't get me wrong, it was a great book, and wonderfully written, the only thing I had problem with was the... no boundaries... The author did not hold back anything, and they didn't care who you were, you were going to die a horrible death. It was more realistic than any zombie book I have read before. So let me tell you a bit about it. We start the book alongside a woman standing outside her house as she watches tiny fingers scrape at her from under the door. It doesn't take long for you to realize that these tiny fingers belong to her three year old son whom she had found being eaten alive by her zombified husband. Then you meet her other son, who had been eaten trying to save her. It is obvious she is in shock as she stands there watching her dead family try to break from the house so they can eat her. But just as they are about to get free from the house, a
