Last summer before graduation
The Rest of Us Just Live Here - Patrick Ness

A time that is about friendship and change.

 

Mikey is a teenager who has OCD. He is under a lot of stress as his mom is a politician. He has one older sister Mel and a young sister. He also has one best friend Jared and a crash Henna. 

 

Typical enough? They are about a group of teenagers who live in a world where zombie and vampire is real. And that happened to the indie kids, a group of outsiders who interact with the supernatural.

 

His crash has a boyfriend Nathan who Mike dislike with a passion. 

 

And it is about the last summer before they are going on their separate way. And how his best friend Jared is three quarters Jewish and one quarter god because his grandmother is a goddess. 

 

It is a fun read as it is not so much about the supernatural but the life of these teenagers who are graduating that are interesting. 

 

5 stars read. Highly recommended.

SHADOW DIVERS by Robert Kurson, narrated by Michael Pritchard
Shadow Divers: Two Americans Who Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of WWII (audiobook) - Robert Kurson

 

Finding the book Rocket Men: The Daring Odyssey of Apollo 8 and the Astronauts Who Made Man's First Journey to the Moon incredibly entertaining and informative, I took the recommendation of a friend and put this one on hold at my library.

 

I downloaded the audio version and I didn't care for the narrator quite as much as I did with ROCKET MEN. (I see now there is a version narrated by Campbell Scott! That was not available at my library.)  Also, this version seemed to have been adapted from CDs because everyone once in a while the narrator announced to go to the next one. Lastly, the quality of the recording wasn't that great either- it sounded static-y at times.

 

Audio portion aside, this was an extremely informative book regarding deep sea diving. After reading this, I now know that it's something I will never do. I can't even walk around above ground without stubbing toes and running into things. During a deep sea dive, any stumble, any unsure footing could and probably will result in death. As would snagging your line, rubbing up against something abrasive, running out of air or resurfacing too soon. And I haven't even mentioned narcosis yet.

 

I also learned a lot about history and history books, in general. Turns out a lot of the time, the facts you think you know are not the facts. Just ask the divers in this book who worked for YEARS trying to identify the German U-boat they found off the Jersey shore. They worked tirelessly to discover where the boat came from, who was on it, etc...

 

Overall, I found this book interesting and informative and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subjects I mentioned above.

 

*Thank you to my local library for the free download! Libraries RULE!

Book review : this lie will kill you Chelsea pitcher
This Lie Will Kill You - Chelsea Pitcher

July 8-17

One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.

But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true.

Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago.

Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all? 


Review : this book was crazy so after an event a year ago they are all brought to this mansion to solve a fake murder but are they really . When they discover they were brought here under false information. Gavin was drugged . Parker is a creepy fucking stalker and a psychopath. He loves ruby but maybe to much Juniper thought she was protecting her friend . Ruby a year a go met a guy named Shane and parker didn't like him but Shane liked ruby a lot and a video was released of them having sex and everyone thought Shane did it but he didn't parker took it . He was the ringleader that brought them all to the mansion he was working with Shane sister who ended up dying at Ruby's hand . Brianna starts a fire parker dies he is the reason Shane is dead freaking psycho he is . We find out Ruby ended up killing her abusive father he was choking her but she hit him with a doll. Gavin , Juniper , Brett and ruby leave alive this book was very lyrical and I really loved it , it had twist and turns .
