Review: Dead on Target by Franklin W. Dixon
Dead on Target - Franklin W. Dixon

When Joe's girlfriend is killed in the blast of a terrorist bomb, Frank and Joe Hardy pursue a ruthless terrorist leader, the infamous Al-Rousasa, who has targeted a presidential candidate for assassination. (from Goodreads)

 

Series: 1 of Hardy Boys Casefiles

Rating: 3 stars

 

When Iola Morton, Joe Hardy's girlfriend, is killed in a bomb meant for Frank and Joe, it sends the two of them, along with Frank's girlfriend Callie Shaw, their friend Tony Prito and Iola's brother Chet, into a dark world of terrorism.

 

This was the first Hardy Boys book I ever read... and finished. (I was a Nancy Drew fan and was scandalized at how similar they were. I'm smarter now.)

 

This was pretty good. Tons more action and a lot less romance then in the Nancy Drew files, which I am incredibly grateful for. If you guys wanna know something about me, it's that I hate romance books. Sweet Valley High is like the most I can handle. 

 

I do remember the first time I read this book, I was 16 and in love with Joe Hardy, because of how snarky he was. Now I'm 20 and love both Hardy's equally. Joe because of the snark but less because of his sexist comments, and Frank because he's a nerd.

Dead, Bath and Beyond
Dead, Bath, and Beyond: A Victoria Square Mystery - Laurie Cass,Lorraine Bartlett

Katie Bonner quit a job working for a horrible boss, Josh, to run her own business, Artist's Mall. She has become very good and is earning a good living. She spends time with her friend and lawyer, Seth, floating on his boat in Lake Ontario. Josh from everything we learn, is not a good person and is living for free in her friend's B&B, that is still being worked on. She goes to their place and when she learns that they are considered suspects in the murder of Josh, found dead in a bathtub in the B&B and has a knot on his head and lake water in his lungs. She feels the need to snoop and help find out who really murdered Josh and left him. Along the way, she learns about others who have a boat and their issues with boats and wants to help them all out, becoming their friends. 

 

The story was okay, but I like the Booksellers stories more and may or may not try another in this series.

Cover Love
Portraits of the Dead - John Nicholl

I saw this cover and fell in love with it.  Then, I read the post from a fellow blogger about how wonderful this novel was so, then I naturally had to buy it.  I looked over the rest of John Nicholl's novels and well, I think he's an author I'm going to have to read.  Yes sir, he has something going on!

 

Guess this baby is going to make it to the top of my stack of reading material!

 

Don't you love it?

Here's Negan
The Walking Dead: Here's Negan! - Robert Kirkman

I liked this well enough, but it feels kind of unnecessary.  Negan the big bad got that way because reasons.  The reasons didn't strike me as particularly special for a zombie apocalypse.  He was kind of a jerk before the dead started to rise, and then he became a jerk who experienced loss and was able to get other people to follow him, to increase their chances of not dying.  And he obtained his signature barbed-wire bat.
