The Last Child by John Hart
The Last Child - John Hart

There are a lot of great reviews about this book out there already, so I just want to say- I loved this coming of age, mystery!
Don't get me wrong though...this book is dark, but the characterization is excellent, especially of the main character, Johnny. This kid carries a heavy burden, with his twin sister having disappeared a year before, his father leaving, and his mother- who is a ghost of her former self. I really felt for this kid.

 

The author is coming out with a follow up to this next year and I am definitely looking forward to it.
5 stars and a favorite. Highly recommended!

Eternal Darkness by Tom Deady
Eternal Darkness - Tom Deady,Pete Kahle,Richard Chizmar

 Picked this one up after really enjoying the author's book, "Haven". I liked this one even better.

Another coming of age story, but this time with vampires. The ending left room for a sequel, which I hope will follow.
4.5 stars rounded up to 5.

The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea
The Jersey Devil - Hunter Shea

 

 

I found this a tad predictable, but still with some good horrifying moments. It did have a sort of an 80's horror, campy film feel to it.  Rated 3.5 stars.

The Imam's Daughter by Hannah Shah
The Imam's Daughter - Hannah Shah

This one was heart-breaking, but I couldn't stop reading it! Kudos to the author for speaking out, especially on the subject matter and of a culture that most of us don't understand.

 

Synopsis: She lived the life of a devout Muslim in a family of Pakistani Muslims in England, but behind the front door, she was a caged butterfly. For many years, her father abused her in the cellar of their home. At sixteen, she discovered a plan to send her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage, and she gathered the courage to run away. Relentlessly hunted by her angry father and brothers, who were intent on executing an honor killing, she moved from house to house in perpetual fear to escape them. Over time, she converted to Christianity and was able to live and marry as she wished. Hannah found the courage to live her live free from shame, free from religious intolerance, and free from the abuse that haunted her childhood. This is a remarkable true story of how a young girl escaped a life of torture...a story you won't forget!

Reading progress update: All the Errors!
The Mystery of The Crochet Chess Set (Crochet Mysteries Series Book 1) - Pamela Murrey

While the story is somewhat okay, the errors really detract from the story. There are times where I have to stop and really think about what the author was trying to say. I am powering through this story just to say I finished it and to see if it actually contains a pattern to create a chess set. My girls love to play chess and I would love to make each one a set of her own. Mostly so they can challenge more people. 

 

If it doesn't I will figure something out, but that was the whole reason for choosing to take this book as it didn't sound like something I would enjoy.
