Alice in Zombieland (would definitely be the first to die)
Alice in Zombieland - Gena Showalter

Sorry this review is late in coming, but this was a buddy read for August and I wanted no spoilers. 

 

So...this book...yeah....NO. JUST NO.

 

Ali is everything a Mary Sue can be. She's pretty in a painful Arian way. She's stupid in short-bus, first to die, trip her and save yourself ways. She has no redeeming qualities. She is also the kind of girl that falls for the abusive asshole just because he's pretty. She makes me sick.

 

Cole is your typical handles-everything-with-his-fists guy. He's gorgeous, of course. But you cannot pretty up this guy's insides. He's just nasty. He gets his way at school by glaring, rage and fear. Him and his posse don't even seem to know what a dress code is, wearing chains and sleeves of tattoos. And ankle monitors. Wtf? He says terrible things to people, he's bossy, and he's grabby if you attempt to walk away. He will also stick you in his car and drive you around but not tell you where you are going. Yes, folks, he's kidnappy. 

 

Now, the "zombies" in this book are the weirdest imagining of them I have ever come across. Soul eating ghost things that can only be seen by special snowflakes. Of course Ali is one. And of course she ends up being like and Alpha zombie hunter with uber super powers the likes of which have never been seen. 

 

Yet I swear she never sleeps. She should be dead. It's just not humanly possible to go that long without sleep, folks.

 

And with everyone in her life dying, what does Ali learn? To "live life", or in Ali speak, fuck her boyfriend, the abusive, two-faced, half-the-time-I-hate-you Cole. Her friend says she has kidney failure and the ONLY thing Ali learns is "I need to get busy with Cole because we may not have much time". Man, her priorities. Totally ignoring the fact zombies are coming out of the woodwork every night to eat her and half her loved ones are now buried. She needs to bang. God, she was sickening in her shallow one-dimensionalness. Like, Bella Swan shallow. 

 

The plot was lacking and stupid. The only character I liked was her terminally ill best friend. There was a guy named Frostie. Yes, that was his name. Did we ever learn his real name? No. Because that's just how stupid and juvenile this whole adventure down the rabbit hole was. In no way was this a Wonderland tale. It was a poorly written, cliche teen drama that makes The Vampire Diaries look deep. 

 

Ugh. I cannot believe I bought the trilogy.

"It Hurts Me To Love You 3" by Ms. T. Nicole

My Synopsis

Beautifully written! I enjoyed this whole series and I would definitely suggest if you haven't read the first two series please do so. It will bring you up to what has gone on earlier in this story. The author really did a wonderful job at bringing this story to a close. Not wanting to spoil anything but just say all questions and answers were given and I loved how it seemed that there was even some forgiveness after all was said and done. The characters were simply off the chain....being well developed, portrayed and so believable giving us a well developed story that will keep your attention to the very end. All that is left to say to the author... you write some well written stories that always leave your readers wanting more!

My Thoughts...

 

What a read that will present many secrets that did come out presenting problems especially for Yam Snake and DJ.  Now, how will this cause some deep problems for poor Paisley?  Will DJ be able pull back since Paisley has his heart?  Be ready for plenty of action that will present many twist and turns that will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next. Since there is more to come of this story we will have to catch part 3 to get the rest of the story.

Great read
Jilted: A Love Hurts Novel - Sawyer Bennett

This is an absolutely fantastic second chance love story. Eden Goodnight is a big time movie star that went back to her small hometown to get away from scandal when her movie star fiancée cheated on her. Little does she know that her hometown thinks negatively of her. When she runs into her high school boyfriend Cooper Mayfield and the old sparks are there. They work through old hurts and wrong assumptions. But when Edens life comes back and she needs to go back can Coop deal with a long distance relationship. This is a great story by Sawyer Bennett and I could not put this book down.
