Ouran High School Host Club, Vol. 01
Ouran High School Host Club, Vol. 01 - Bisco Hatori This was a library read.

This book...is weird. I liked the characters, but the idea of a Host Club is strange to me. Everyone is super fake, and it's just about guys who flirt and flatter girls for entertainment. While the girls know full well none of it's real, they still line up for this attention. That said, I did enjoy reading about all the awkward moments and liked seeing how they react to a poor kid, and a girl at that, joining their club. I will probably read on, but not sure how far I'll make it in this series.

The Greatest Host by Ray Jay Perreault
The Greatest Host - Ray Jay Perreault

In this short and amusing story, Ilrod and his fellow organisms (known as the Mists) have had to abruptly leave their planet where they shared a symbiotic relationship with their hosts for many years. Now, alas, the planet is destroyed and many of the Mists have been lost. It takes many, many years, but they eventually reach another habitable planet and begin their search for a new host species.

This was a cute story that gave me several chuckles. The Mists made me think vaguely of jellyfish in that each Mist is made up of individual molecules that cooperate together to make one functioning being. The Mists look like just how their name implies and they search for symbiotic relationships with other animals.

I enjoyed the last few minutes as Ilrod and his fellow Mists discover a new species to play host to them. The descriptions from Ilrod’s point of view were amusing and I quickly guessed what kind of animal they had come upon. Once again, the author has provided quality entertainment.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author.

Narration:  Christopher M. Allport did a great job with this short story. As the voice of Ilrod, he was excellent at portraying the Mist’s emotions, first at the loss of the planet and fellow Mists, and later at the wonder of discovering such a compatible host.

The Magick Host by Jacquie Alanna Gallo
The Magick Host - Jacquie Alanna Gallo
This is a debut novel that gives a twist to the tale of magic (with a k) and vampires. It revolves around a trio of twenty-somethings and what happens to make their lives more interesting and infinitely more dangerous.

There is not a lot of explanation about why Skye/Eli can do the things he can, or even a lot of detail about how and why Eli was killed previously, but still this story will take you along. It is a slow burner but stick with it because it certainly heats up as things progress. 

I really enjoyed this book even though I wasn't sure about it, even when I was about a third of the way through. There are some editing issues where characters are called by the wrong name which does interrupt the flow, but on the whole, it is very enjoyable and definitely worth a read and a review.

                Excerpt
 





My arm trembles as I grip the cool handle of my pistol, keeping a firm grasp to ensure it doesn’t slip out of my sweaty hand. It usually stands sentry in my left nightstand to scare the nightmares away. But this isn’t a dream. The room is dark and hides the face of the man whose intent is to kill me. But I know who he is. A metallic taste fills my mouth; I want to gag. My blood drips off the blade in his hand in slow, steady beats on the carpet. My arms shake as I lift the barrel and point it in his direction. He doesn't move. His heavy breaths alert me to the meager distance between us.
We’re at a stalemate.
A soft glow from the lamppost just outside my window casts a sliver of light on his face. His dark, beady eyes that I have grown to know rake over my body like I'm another one of his many victims. He lifts the edges of his mouth into a smile. My heart plunges into my stomach. I know what that sinister expression means, and I think back to all the times he had looked at me like that before. I had been so blind.
Before I react he lunges at me, grabbing onto my waist and twisting me to the ground. I shriek as my head slams against the bed frame. Black spots flood my vision. I squeeze my hand only to find it empty. My gun is gone. The sound of the knife clattering on the floor gives me slight hope. Not much though. He climbs up my body trying to pin my arms to the floor. I thrash my fists around, desperate to knock him off.
“Get off!” I scream, pulling on his shirt and kicking him off balance. Wrapping his hands around my arms, my attacker cuts off the circulation of blood. Rug burns flare across my skin as he drags me across the carpet. He closes his hands around my neck, shutting off my air supply. I pull at his hands but it's no use; he has always been stronger than me. My pulse drums a frantic beat in my ears. The air slowly leaks out from my lungs, killing any hope I may have left. I search for the gun around the room; it may be my only savior now.
"Why are you doing this?" I struggle to get the words out. He squints his dark eyes. I'm wondering if there might be a chance that he will stop this madness. I am wrong.
"It'll be over soon, sweetheart." His hands again tighten around my neck, blocking the air from entering my lungs.





My Review
 
WoW the villain in this book is such a sicko. I really felt so bad for Cami the way this sicko kept terrorizing her. People close to her die, but she keeps going, even though she does break down a lot. (But who can really blame her?)
 
I really loved Isaac, who of course becomes Cami's love interest, he was so great to her after she was attacked. I felt bad for him as well, he didn't have a great history in the love department either. 
 
The whole book in general was so tensed, you never knew what was going to happen next. I loved the book. The one I really didn't like of course was the sicko bad guy. I would definitely read this book again, and buy it when I have some money. 
 
I am so happy I was chosen to be part of the book tour for this book. Thanks so much Chapter by Chapter for giving me this chance to read this book and for just giving my honest opinion on how I felt about the book.
