The Monster Amongst Us
Attack of the Fiend by Joseph Delaney Unabridged Playaway Audiobook (The Last Apprentice) - Joseph Delaney,Christopher Evan Welch

I finished writing this review and it got eaten by the computer gremlins. Oh well, here it goes again. I listened to this on audiobook while I was packing up the house this summer, and it greatly improved what was a tedious task. The narration is well done. This series is pretty darn spooky, no pun intended. It's downright scary at times. The narrator lends well to the atmosphere. There's a feeling of the monster lurking in the dark behind every closed door, a sense of paranoia and an urgency not to trust anyone. The storyline enhances that feeling because the monsters lurk in human form. More of the witches storyline in this one, and further development of the relationship between Tom and Alice. Definitely worth a read.

Ormai tra noi è tutto infinito - Gio Evan

Poesie dolcissime e da diabete, nonostante alcune siano un po' scontate e piene di frasi fatte... mi sono piaciute. 
Un libro dedicato agli innamorati e sconsigliatissimo agli acidi XD se non amante i buoni sentimenti e lo zucchero... questo libro non fa per voi!

Really not into this
Rise of the Black Panther (2018) #1 (of 6) - Ta-Nehisi Coates,Evan Narcisse,Paul Renaud,Brian Stelfreeze

I picked this up for free, and tried it. I'd heard that the glut of Black Panther series - based on the popularity of Coates' series - watered down the Black Panther name, made it harder to keep up with the series, and just burnt people out.   In addition, I'd add that they were stretching the stories, and they ended up just not being all that compelling. 

 

I did not feel this at all.   All the complexity of the original series seems to have been ditched, and I will not be continuing this series.

Dear Evan Hansen
Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel - Steven Levenson,Justin Paul,Benj Pasek,Val Emmich
I was glued to this book. The lies just kept rolling off Evan’s lips and I just had to know how he was going to find his way out of them. I cringed every time someone spoke to Evan, as I wasn’t sure whether he was going to speak the truth or lie. Evan knew exactly what he was doing and that that eventually, his lies were going to catch up with him sooner or later. Evan’s lies were giving him exactly what he wanted and he felt externally that, life was good. Internally, it was a different story. I was a nervous wreck. When were individuals going to catch on to what was exactly happening and what were the ramifications going to be?
 
Evan’s a loner. Evan would like to be a part of something but when you feel invisible, live with anxiety and low self-esteem, that’s hard to do. When Connor gets ahold of a letter that Evan wrote as part of his therapy, Evan worries what might happen to this message but what actually occurs is much bigger than he imaged.
 
The two had talked, yet not enough to validate Evan’s remarks after Connor commits suicide. As Connor’s parents approach Evan with his letter, Evan can’t tell them the truth. With Evan’s letter in their possession, Connor and Evan look like best friends but that piece of paper is the only thing that ties them together. The lies start, they flow freely, Evan can’t seem to stop, even when he knows what he is doing is wrong.
 
Evan begins to become a different person but beneath all the layers, he’s still the same person. If he stops now, I think he could become the person he created over time. Is this what he wants? What exactly does he want, now that he has finally become a part of something? He’s living the dream.
 
It was an good read. I cringed to read what was going to happen yet I needed to know. I read that this book was based on a musical which I haven’t seen yet. I’m going to see if I can find this musical and see if it’s anything like this book.

How an assassin found a family
Hellbent (Evan Smoak) - Gregg Hurwitz

Evan Smoak is a former government trained assassin. A program that recruit orphans to work. They are all given a code name started with "Orphan". Evan is Orphan X. 

 

His handler bond with him and trained him to remain human.

 

Once he run away from this black-op, he wanted to use this skill to help other people in desperate situation that could use his skill set. 


Call  1-855-2- NOWHERE and he would help you.  

 

He received a call from Jack. That lead to a package. 

 

Now he is on the run with the package. 

 

More people try to kill him while he still tried to take on case. 

 

It works well together as the character developments allow enough details into the mind of a man who has a past still not letting him go yet. He wants to move forward but his past is a bit too dangerous and unpredictable to draw someone new into his life.

 

In this book we learned about the 10 commandments from Jack. Don't let an innocent dies is one of them. Also, not killing children.

 

While reading this, Evan drink vodka. I drink vodka but I haven't try any of the expensive one that the book mentioned. Would like to try Glass Kona with coffee infusion. 

 

The moving forward part is hard, especially for someone who killed before. If he is not being hunted, he should at least see a therapist and see if he is suffering PTSD. 

 

The solitude. The straight discipline. The anxiety of social interaction. All very endearing. The responsibility forced upon him is texting as well. 


The story moved along quite smoothly in a fast pace. But leave enough space for Evan self reflection and character development. 

 

Like it a lot. High recommended.
