Wanted!
Wanted! - Caroline B. Cooney

Me: In 2020 I'm going to read more new stuff. 

Also me: Let's reread this Caroline B. Cooney novel late late one night when I should be asleep. 

 

I don't remember why, but I had a sudden need to reread this book. It was like a craving that wouldn't go away. The book is really silly, but I still enjoyed parts (probably out of nostalgia), especially when Alice is on the college campus. Cooney's novels are very exciting when you're 10 and the internet is not a thing or when you're... older than 10 and just need to take a little brain break and revisit your childhood.

Batman: Black and White (2013- ) #1 - Chip Kidd,Neal Adams,Joe Quinones,Michael Cho

So I picked up a bunch of Batman freebies.  I'm not a huge Bats fan.  I really only read him when Catwoman shows up because she's awesome.

 

So - 

 

DCeased is basically the DC universe vs. zombies.  It's an interesting idea but I didn't find it particularly "must know what happened next".

 

The Batman Black & White series are short Batman stories.  Somewhat Noir in feeling, sometimes by people associated with the cartoon series.  An Innocent Guy is the best one because it actually uses something I think some villain should have done before.

 

The Batman Adventure one features Batgirl.  It's entertaining, but Batgirl is drawn in such a way that she would have no room for a stomach.

 

(I believe most if not all, of these are still free for kindle).

Unrelenting Tension Reels the Reader In
The Swimmer - Joakim Zander

Excellent novels coming out of Scandinavia continue to enjoy international popularity at the moment and this terrific debut by Joakim Zander (2013) is further testament as to why. An unashamed spy thriller, “The Swimmer” exploits for the reader a dynamic plot, which links strong characters across a complex web of time and place, grappling with circumstances typically not of their making. Certainly there are echoes of the ‘Nordic noir’, particularly when a key character (Klara Walldéen) heads home to St. Anna’s Outer Archipelago in Northern Sweden, but the tale spins effortlessly between contemporary Europe and the USA, taking in historical, interlinked events in Afghanistan, Syria and Kurdistan along the way. Clearly the author has utilised his experience as a former lawyer working in the European Union to create vividly convincing scenes within the corridors of power in Brussels, where the reader finds Klara employed as assistant to an ambitious MEP. However, the involvement of a lobbyist and unidentified security services develops a wonderfully clandestine backdrop where ‘the truth’ is continuously manipulated to maintain a plausible public narrative. Indeed it is the grinding of tectonic political forces, which threaten to engulf relatively powerless individuals and discard them as tolerable collateral damage.


Unknown to her, Klara’s childhood spent in happy, obscure isolation with her grandparents was intended to shield her from the loss of her Swedish mother and the absence of her anonymous American father. Moreover, it was calculated to put her beyond the reach of those with a vested interest in silencing witnesses to war-time atrocities. But, after completing her studies abroad at the LSE, as Klara starts out on a promising career, new and present dangers begin to surface and an unseen guardian begins to stir. Aside from the thrilling action and the growing body count, the book offers an interesting take on Klara’s past and present relationships, some apparently disposable, others intense and enduring and the testing of those ties amid life-threatening chaos.


The swimmer has lapsed into an uneasy retirement and sought to protect his daughter’s life chances from the taint of his secretive past. The fervent desire of forces wanting to shine a light on the barbarous activities committed in war must overcome those equally intent on burying the past, to maintain the current fragile peace, albeit perpetrators walk free. For those caught up in the ongoing aftermath, is it better to occupy the moral high ground, or to fashion a means to survive?


Joakim Zander has created a compelling book, threaded with tough female characters, hardened by life in the far north and an unexpected challenge for the macho professional groundlings. The author also poses subtle moral dilemmas, which permeate the book. However, though the twisting plot deliberately frays the nerves, it also delivers a satisfying denouement and a thoughtful afterburn, which is so often the hallmark of an exceptional read.

Book Review for Rocket by Lilly Atlas
Rocket (Hell's Handlers MC #5) - Lilly Atlas

 

Omg ! Omg ! Omg! This series just keeps getting better and better! Holy hotness! What a roller-coaster this read was as it was heart wrenching,suspenseful,twisty,erotic,heartfelt ,tragic and about healing and forgiveness and had a great cast of amazing characters who are fun and who love to tease each other as well get under each other skin but, in a loving  and caring way.Can you say "always up in your Biz" ,that goes for the men as well as the women.The old ladies in this series are a hoot!.The old ladies also are loving and caring and amazingly strong women but, time and time again one sticks out the most and that is Izzy she just rocks!Izzy is it a tell it like it is gal,fierce,loyal and a total bada** and "we just love her !" I have a feeling Chloe is going to give Izzy a run for her money when it comes to bada** old ladies.
 
Chloe was simply amazing and strong and brave and it was tragic what happened to her but, she has risen above it and has found her own unique way of dealing with her pain.We saw this women blossom through out this entire story and perhaps Logan may have gotten her on the right path to healing and helping her to put her past behind her.Chloe did all the hard work ,then Jigsaw and Izzy set her on yet another path that helped her deal with her anxiety and she became more focused and started to dig deep down and dig in.We loved her and every attempt she made to challenge herself, "some who say it was another stepping stone to her recovery in the right direction." "Let's just say the gloves came on then came off!" lol
 
I loved Logan aka Rocket from the onset of the story.Logan was one bad boy who was scary,dark dangerous,sexy as sin, but, also caring and loving and compassionate as well as very protective of those he loved and let's not forget brutey .I loved his interactions with Chloe it was almost if he was another person with her and not anything like the Logan we have come to know and loved but, we loved seeing his compassionate and loving side all out in full force and let's just say we love how he got creative with Chloe in order to help her heal. Most of all you got to love the guy for the sacrifices that man was making to his pride in order to do so.Let's just saying we were laughing out loud time and time again but, patting him on his back for his cleverness.
 
This was also one totally hot sexy read!Chloe was everything Logan/Rocket needed in his life and in his bed.I loved that Chloe was drawn more to Logan even more so after she leaned all his secrets and the thing he thought made him un -love -able and unworthy is what she loved most about the hot and sexy man.Who would not want a hot possessive and dangerous man in your corner after everything you went through?Chloe was no fool.....
 
 
Overall we loved this tale as it made you laugh and cry and was suspenseful and full of romance and it never had a dull moment and it was full of hot sexy scenes that kept you engrossed in the pages and turning them right from the very beginning and we could not put the book down until it was finished.We loved all the twists and turns the story took as well.We also loved how much all the characters were featured in this current tale"We loved revisiting with them!".Maverick he always makes us laugh and he did that time and time again this time around.One thing we loved most about this tale is you felt the love they all have for one another throughout this entire story and that always makes the story a whole lot of fun and touching as well!
 
This one is definitely a keeper !
A recommended read to all as well as the entire series!
 
One of out favorite MC authors for sure !
