Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you all have a spooky day. Tonight is one of those nights to put your spooky books down and hand out some candy to the kids in your area. Maybe watch a good freaky show on TV and have some orange hot chocolate. I do want to warn people going out tonight to be safe and to watch out while driving around, since kids will be running into the streets. Make sure if you are going out to check your candy before eating it. Lastly, no matter how old you are, don't be afraid to go out trick-or-treating. I'm 20 and there is a good chance I'll be going out this year. If you're dressed up people normally give you candy. And those who aren't going out, make sure to give the older kids some treats if they're dressed up. Have a creepy day everyone and happy reading! - K

The Infection by Craig DiLouie

Hey everyone I hope you had a great weekend. It's Halloween today and the perfect day for a spooky, scary book. So when the Tick-or-treaters finally call it a night you can finish off the evening with the perfect eerie book. I had been searching around the net for a book that would be good to read leading up to Halloween when I came across this one. It was highly recommended by a few different sight. The description seemed to have an original spin on things so i thought I'd give it a shot. From the very first chapter I noticed that this was a new take on a zombie novel. The longer I read the more things began to change. I had many more questions than the beginning that seemed like there would be no answer to. Let me tell you a bit about it: Over a week after a horrible virus spread through the globe five survivors huddle together in a Bradley Fighting Vehicle traveling across the country. Before all of this they were ordinary people without any fighting experience. The

Take the Body and Run by Jada Ryker

Hey everyone I hope you had a great weekend! The book I read for this weeks review was sent to me by the lovely author. It took me awhile to get to it because my list of books to read has been very long since I found my other pile I lost while moving. If I had read the description for this book I had long since forgotten it before I got around to reading the book. That doesn’t mean anything to me in most cases because it is easier for me to go into the book blind. So first impressions of the book didn’t really happen. Let me tell you a bit about it: Macey has just started a new job at a University. Her first day doesn’t go so well when a woman barges into her office brandishing a knife at her. Thankfully she is saved but that doesn’t mean she gets out of having to deal with her snotty staff members. With everyone seemingly out to get her Macey has a lot on her hands. But Macey has a lot more on her plate than a few workplace disputes. She is hiding a secret that no o

Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry

Hey everyone I hope you had a great weekend. As you may have noticed Halloween is quickly approaching. I’m so excited to read all of the spooky stories that are posted this time of year. If you have any requests for horror, thriller, or paranormal books you’d like me to read drop me a line through my contact form along the right hand side of the page. This week I finally broke down and bought a book that I’ve been seeing in stores for years. The only reason I did was because it was on sale at my bookstore on campus for $2. Even then it sat in my bag until I literally had nothing else to read. The first thing I noticed when I started looking at the book was it was written by an author I had read before. This wasn’t overly reassuring for me since I didn’t have the best review for his first book I read. Despite this I tried to have an open mind. Right from the start I enjoyed the story. I expected more drama and bullsh!t based on the description but for both sides of the argument th

Ashes by Lisa J. Bick

Hey everyone I hope you had a good Thanksgiving (for those of you in Canada). I was lucky enough that my boyfriend had the day off to make me and my roommate a nice dinner, since I was unable to make it home to be with my family due to work. But despite being so busy I still managed to get a book read for today. For the last couple weeks I have been looking for good Apocalypse books with little luck. I saw this book but the description didn't really fit what I was looking for. When I couldn't find anything else to read I said "screw it" and read it anyway. The first thing I found when reading the book is that it was WAY better than the description lead on. There was a whole other theme to the story that wasn't even mentioned in the description. The moment I started I couldn't put it down and within 24 hours I had read the second book and was working on the third book. So let me tell you a bit about it: Alex ran away from her Aunts place to fulfill her

Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

Hey everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. This week I started reading a book called UFO Files that I found at the bookstore for $2. But one thing I find about this book, which I haven't finished reading yet, is that it really makes me want to read other books. It's not that the book isn't good (it's alright) but there is something about the themes it talks about that makes me want to read a book with that theme. So because of that I ended up finding this book. Amanda Hocking has a long history of writing books for the teen audience. I first ran into her books when I read her Switched at Birth trilogy, which I don't think I did a review for on this blog. Since I recognized her I thought I would give this book a shot. The description of the book was very basic. It has the classic "girl in a zombie apocalypse trying to find someone she loves" feel. And there is something about a book set in the 'after apocalypse' centred around the apocalypse
