Wanted - J.G. Jones,Mark Millar,Brian K. Vaughan

 

 

This comic collection, reissued and amended, tells us about Wesley, leading a humdrum and unhappy existence, until he is taken into hand by the Fraternity and trained to be a killer supervillain. Adapted and changed completely into a film with Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy, the series is nicely plotted and the artwork is clear, detailed and well-executed. The story is original and well worth a look for all fans of comics, particularly fans of Mark Millar.

Vampire Most Wanted by Lynsay Sands
Vampire Most Wanted - Lynsay Sands

I actually don't know how to rate this book. I liked the setting and the mysterious aspect of the story. The characters were likable and it was so good to read about previous main characters as well. I really enjoyed how author gave just enough clues to keep me guessing but didn't try to confuse me. After a long week at work it was just what I needed.
But there were also things that disgusted me. I don't know how much time does it take me to forget the "family picnic" described in this book. Probably a lot. The last chapter was so awful, I didn't know if I should have cried or screamed in horror. I also can't get over, how utterly stupid immortals can sometimes be. They've lived for centuries and still the baby vamps know more about life then they do.
What irked me the most was that after everything - things that took place in the camp, what Leonius and Abbadon did, we are left with a bloody cliffhanger. 
So, no rating at the moment. When I've made up my mind, I'll add it.

potted history of the Romans
Veni, Vidi, Vici: Everything you ever wanted to know about the Romans but were afraid to ask - Peter Jones

This is a great book to dip in and out of.  All about Rome and the Romans during the Classical period, Peter Jones follows things in a chronological fashion making me want to do more research about some of the things in the tale.  It's a perfect book to dip your toes into Classical History or refresh your mind.

In the Darkness, Everyone is Alone: "The Wanted" by Robert Crais
The Wanted (Elvis Cole and Joe Pike) - Robert Crais


In the darkness, everyone is alone.

None to speak to you but silence,
The quiet of words unspoken,
An old friend scarce known.
A silence we dread to see broken,
Yet somehow constantly bemoan.

a great easy read
Wanted - Bad Boyfriend - TA Moore
I was gifted my copy of this book, that I write a review was not required. Everyone thinks Nate should have a boyfriend, NEEDS one to be happy. But is ok by himself, mostly. So he hatches a plan with the island's resident bad boy. Pretend to be together for a bit, the Flynn can do his thing, dump Nate and everyone will leave him alone. Only, there are a couple of problems with said plan: both are surprised by the chemistry between them, and actually, Flynn turns out to be quite a good boyfriend. And it becomes a case on not pretending. I LIKED this book. I did not love it though, and *insert wailing sound* I don't know why! It's well told, from both Flynn and Nate's point of view, in the past tense. It has some sexy bits, some funny bits, some difficult reading bits and some emotional bits. We don't get all of Flynn and Nate's history in one go, it comes along bits at time. In fact, much of Flynn's history is still unexplained. I still don't know which of those rumours were true, and just why he did not return for his father's funeral. It does throw a CORKER twist at you though! I did NOT see that one coming, not at all!! There I was, merrily reading away *don't tell anyone* on a quiet Sunday afternoon at work, and BOOM!!! Moore throws that at me and I'm like SAY WHAT NOW!?!?!?!?!? Out loud! I rarely am vocal when reading (more so when listening) and my colleague is like "Are you okay?" And I'm like "but look what she did!" Seriously well played with that Ms Moore, very VERY well played! Like I said, it's well told, well written and well delivered. I saw no spelling or editing errors to spoil my reading experience and I read it in that one afternoon. I'm just sorry I didn't love it though. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
