BLOOD BINDS THE PACK by ALEX WELLS
Blood Binds the Pack - Alex Wells

3-1/2 stars and that's because the strike part went on way too long. I think at least 50-100 pages in the middle could have been removed and made the book a better read. But I kept persevering and finally finished it. Whew! It was a close thing to me just moving on but the last maybe 8th of the book finally started speeding along. The plot moved forward, the battles were more than skirmishes, and potential relationships finally went somewhere. So because of the ending I went up from 3 to 3-1/2 stars.

I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells
I Am Not A Serial Killer - Dan Wells,John Allen Nelson

This is a weird book but I think I liked it well enough. Let’s see if I can work out a rating by the time I stop writing out my feelings here.

 

“I think that fate wants me to become a serial killer.”

 

John Wayne Cleaver is a teen doing his best not to murder the cretins that surround him. I’m not joking about this either. He has serious serial killer in the making vibes. Even his therapist thinks so. His family runs a mortuary and he’s been exposed to death since he was a child but he’s the only one in his family who finds death fascinating. He’s written school essays on serial killers and is obsessed with learning everything about them. But unlike most killers (besides Dexter), he knows murder is wrong and he creates rules for himself that will prevent him from acting out on his urges to slice people up like stir-fry. But people do not make it easy for him. As you all probably know, most people are jerks. Especially when they’re still in high school. John has one friend and that friend was so annoying I might’ve wanted to slice him up a time or two myself.

 

This kid is detached, he knows it, you know it and it’s hard to feel for him since he doesn’t feel normal emotions. He mimics others in order to be a decent citizen and get by in society. You think you see where this all heading with comments like these, don’t you?

 

“If you met me on the street you’d never know how much I wanted to kill you.”

 

But you would be wrong. The book takes a weird and unexpected turn somewhere midway in and it really threw me off. I thought I was reading one thing and then it turned into another thing and I wasn’t sure I liked where it was heading but in the end I guess it worked out because I didn’t quit it. Just go in expecting the unexpected and you might be ok.

 

With that said, I must steer you away from the audiobook read by John Allen Nelson. Sadly this narrator was not a good fit for my ears. He has a news anchor voice and he’s not afraid to use it and it continually threw me out of the story. He would be much better suited to a true crime or a nonfiction book. He doesn’t do well with a teen’s voice and this book is told by a teen. He also has the funniest, most cartoony old person voice I think I have ever heard outside of the shows my kids used to watch on Nickelodeon. I laughed when I should’ve been a wee bit sad or terrified.

 

In the end, I guess I’m giving this production and story a three. I wasn’t happy with the way everything was wrapped up so tidily in the end. It seemed too easy and too unbelievable and it infuriated me a little. Many people say this story gets better as the series moves along. I may try another if I stumble on a free copy but I won’t actively seek them out.

Step by Step by K.C. Wells 3.5 Star Review!
Step by Step - K.C. Wells

Jamie’s life is one big financial mess, and it really isn’t his fault. However, the last thing he expected to find in the library was a Good Samaritan. He might have been suspicious of Guy’s motives at first, but it soon becomes apparent that his savior is a good man who has been lucky in life and is looking to pay it forward. Guy being gay is not a problem. Jamie’s not interested… or so he thinks.

Guy is happy to help Jamie, and the two men get along fine. But when Jamie’s curiosity leads him from one thing to another, Guy finds himself looking at the young man with new eyes. What started out as a hand up is now something completely different…

 

Review

 



Stranger Danger! This was my first reaction to this plot. But the book is also about the fact that there are kind people in the world.

This romance is a pay it forward fantasy with a dollop age difference and super kind hero.

They make a great couple and the book is very good about consent and power dynamics. 

They secondary ex wife and son characters could be more nuanced as could the other hero's parents but a lovely read over all.

Reading progress update: I've read 59%.
Personal Challenges - K.C. Wells,Meredith Russell

“You know how Papa wears glasses to read the newspaper?” Will asked her.

Sophie bit her lip. “Not all the time. Sometimes he says things like, ‘there’s nothing wrong with my eyes,’ and he holds the newspaper really far away.”
