Series: Miss Peregrine #1 I was pleasantly surprised by this book. What little I knew of it sounded weird, so I didn't know exactly what I was getting into or how the main character's story would tie into that of his grandfather's. I'm just trying not to look at some of the questionable internal l...

One of those books you just can't put down. I absolutely fell into it.I loved the narrative voices and how different the siblings felt, but how they clearly came from the same influences and mirrored each other. The time skipping was very effective, with each half of the story leaning into and build...

My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com. Feed is another story that I picked up to stay with my horror theme for Halloween in October. It is also another great recommendation from TheGeekyBlogger. After I started listening to the first little bit, I started t...

Another book about which I have extremely mixed feelings, or perhaps a book I liked despite itself. Mostly I really loved the main characters, or the main three journalists, to be specific. Georgia Mason is one of those fantastic tough-as-nails-emotionally-closed-yet-deeply-feeling reporter types th...

I liked this book even though it was nothing like I expected. The description of the book had me thinking it would be scary and that the children in the pictures were dangerous. It was not even remotely scary and the children don't seem all that dangerous. I know a follow-up book is coming out, thou...

When I decided to read this year's (2013) Hugo nominee's I knew that I'd have to start at the beginning of this series and I was skeptical. I don't like zombies, they give me nightmares. Furthermore, I had it in my head that this was some sort of "pop" book, something written around a trend and boun...

I really don't like zombies stories. I never have. But this is the second zombie book I've read and the second that I just couldn't not put on my favorites shelf. I think I loved everything about this book. I loved the characters, I loved the dialogue and the interactions, I loved the world building...

What did I think? Hmmm. I'll have to think about that.This was an interesting story. Great premise - alternate universes, and as I'm a sucker for time travel (which generally involves alternate realities), it was excellent on that count. The way the two realities differed provided the mystery an...

I think I'm becoming an addict. I quite liked this book even more than I liked the last one. I just love characters that I can connect with and that I care about. But really, if you learn anything from a story, do not trust a disembodied voice. They will always lead you to trouble. As Arthur Weasley...
