A Christmas Gone Perfectly Wrong by Cecilia Grant - My Thoughts
A Christmas Gone Perfectly Wrong: A Blackshear Family novella - Cecilia Grant

The first of my Christmas reads and it was charming.  I found myself smiling much of the way through the story, even when I wanted to pinch the hero, the so very bound-by-duty Andrew Blackshear, who is the eldest of the family and so very, very, very proper.  *LOL*

Our heroine, Lucy Sharp was born to get under Andrew's skin and drive him to total distraction.  And that's exactly what she does with her impulsive and adventurous ways.  Propriety?  Not something she adheres to for the most part.  Brought up by an unconventional widower after the way-too-early death of her mother.

It was cute, it was heart-warming, it was filled with love and surprises.  I'm not fond of the cover (it's just too modern-looking for me), but the novella is a very pleasing read for the holiday season.  Check it out!

Re-read by audiobook

 

I previously read the paperback book in January of 2012. This time I listened to the audiobook.

This book felt completely different than when I read the paperback. I ended up really enjoying it which is great considering I gave it 2 stars. I liked it so much the second time around I already ordered the next book from the library - so there! 

Previous review: This book kind of dragged for me and I found I had a hard time finishing it. Georgia "George" Mason and her brother Shaun are professional bloggers which has turned into a legitimate job after a virus has made every person and large animal who dies into a zombie. When the normal news media told everyone it was a hoax, the bloggers gave real information and warnings. George writes news stories and Shaun does shock type blogs filming himself teasing and killing the zombies and their friend Buffy is the technician and also a poet with her own blog. Their group is chosen to be part of the press for a presidential campaign which has given them legitimacy. The only problem is someone is sabotaging the campaign and people are dying and thus becoming zombies. There's a betrayal in this that I still don't understand the reason behind. It didn't make sense to me. So instead of being shocked I was thinking "What?" Also a very sad event takes place and being a natural crier, I was surprised I wasn't really moved. The book drags in places, but when I noted the amount of pages it really didn't drag long however I just couldn't get into to it. The concept was good, but it didn't really deliver for me. I'm in the minority though so my review should be taken with a grain of salt.

Audiobook

So this is how it started? Was the second wave because of something these people did? Or was it truly a mutation. I DON'T KNOW!!

DEADLINE by MIRA GRANT
Deadline - Mira Grant

Audiobook

Not to toot my own horn, but TOOT! I figured out the ending as soon as Kelly said what she did to escape. Also, the SPOILER!! [ George] haunting is just strange. 

And last but not least my prognostication radar has went off and I'll share what I think the next book will show, which I've thought since book one SPOILER!!! [Rick has a bad buy from the beginning and he's part of this new outbreak]. I may be wrong though.

The Scarlet Plague - Gordon Grant,Jack London

 

That was a depressing little story.

 

According to Jack London, the end of civilization comes in 2013 on the a wave of a plague no one catches in time.

 

The story is told by a survivor 60 years later, in California, where the survivors grouped up into tribes from Santa Rosa to San Francisco, with some scattered farther south if my geography is correct without looking at a map.  (my geography and spatial locations is horrible, so don't quote me on that LOL)  

 

I lived in the area for a time, so a lot of the place names were familiar.  Places I've been to, some I lived in or right next to.  I'm trying to picture Niles with no people, Hayward as farmland, and no Fremont.  Palo Alto as a small community, and the San Joaquin valley now full of horses.  Carmel as an after thought. 

 

None of the sprawl that connects most of the cities and towns in the area between Oakland San Jose.
