TBR Thursday 19
The Hero and the Crown - Robin McKinley
Island Fire (Island Series Book 1) - Toby Neal
Shady Cross - James Hankins
The Blood of the Fifth Knight - E.M. Powell
Emissary (Legends of the Realm) - Thomas Locke
The Hitchhiker Strain: The Complete Series - Kellie Sheridan

Moonlight Reader started the TBR Thursday, and I think it's a good way to a) show what new books I've got and b) confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR. In fact, since I started recording it, it has risen significantly. I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong here...

 

I've got absolutely no time, so I've prepared this in advance and it's just the books I received this week. Hopefully, I'll be a bit less stressed next week.

 

TBR pile currently stands at 258. (+9)

(Netgalley ARCs at 90 (+5))

End Dayz by Kellie Sheridan
End Dayz (The Hitchhiker Strain, #0.5) - Kellie Sheridan

DNF at 49%

 

Even I have to admit that this is well written, but it's all tell, tell, tell, tell. Letter after letter, diary entry after diary entry.

 

I do not care.

 

How can you make zombies boring? Give me a play by play of the boring crap in life afterwards. There's no sense of urgency, no worry from the characters, no action, nothing going on.

 

I started skimming at about 39% and gave up finally when I hit Alex's chapter and realized it was (surprise!) more of the same.

End Dayz (The Hitchhiker Strain, #0.5) - Kellie Sheridan

Finished Chapter 1: Pierce.

 

Seriously? This is the most boring thing ever. Zombie-infected and I'm being told about it in letters afterwards?

 

*sigh*

September Books Round up
Ignite - Erica Crouch
The Salbine Sisters - Sarah Ettritch
All Together Dead - Charlaine Harris
Die for Me - Amy Plum
Silence of the Wolves - Hannah Pole
Slumber - Tamara Blake
Rogue - Rachel Vincent
The Demon's Song - Kendra Leigh Castle
Magick Marked - Chauntelle Baughman
Mortality - Kellie Sheridan

I read 14 books in September, including the 2 I didn't finish.

 

Angel Diaries Volume 1 by Larissa Hinton
Ignite by Erica Crouch
The Salbine Sisters by Sarah Ettritch
All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris
The Rush by Rachel Higginson
Rogue by Rachel Vincent
Silence of the Wolves by Hannah Pole
Slumber by Tamara Blake
Earth by Shauna Granger
Die For Me by Amy Plum
The Demon Song by Kendra Leigh Castle
Mortality by Kellie Sheridan
Magick Marked by Chauntelle Baughman
The Perpetual Motion Club by Sue Grange

 

6 were arcs from Netgalley (Ignite, The Salbine Sisters, Silence of the Wolves, Slumber, The Perpetual Motion Club, The Demon Song) 3 were wins from a librarything.com member giveaway (Angel Diaries, Magick Marked, Mortality), The Rush was a freebee from iBooks, Earth was a kindle book, All together dead, Rogue, and Die for me, were paperbacks.

 

(Die for me wins this months favourite cover award)

The two I didn't finish were Angel Diaries and the Perpetual Motion Club. Angel Diaries I read the first few chapters and couldn't stand the main character so I gave up. Perpetual Motion Club was a futuristic sci-fi drama/comedy. Didn't work for me; not badly written or anything. Just not my cup of tea.

 

Best books of September were Silence of the Wolves and Slumber.

 

I also attempted to start a book blog as well. Not much on there at the moment, a handful of reviews, and to break up the reviews, and since I'm not sure what else to put on there yet, a handful of pictures of my cat.

End Dayz (The Hitchhiker Strain, #0.5)
End Dayz (The Hitchhiker Strain, #0.5) - Kellie Sheridan
Read from September 16 to 17, 2013


Word count: (???) short (I don't trust my estimates)
Rating: “Not dying is a pretty epic feeling. “



Work on your zombie killing skills.

*ARC provided by NetGalley


It tickled my new found love of dystopia and curiosity about mechanics of stabbing people in the brain.
