Review of Dark House - Experiments in Terror #1

So... After reading ALL day just so I could find out what happened, I stayed up a little late and tried to finish Dark House... Right up until my husband came into the living room and asked me if I was going to get up and go to bed or just drool all over the Kindle all night. (Apparently, I only thought I was still reading! )

I'm not sure what I expected from this one, but it wasn't haunted lighthouses and a creepy clown lady! ( Why oh why do I have to have  a clown phobia??? lol) Anyway, as I was saying, This poor girl was wandering around in her uncle's lighthouse and runs smack into a hot guy! Woo-hoo, he turns out to be real. Perry and Dex decide to team up to do ghost videos for the web. (Of course, I am really condensing here.) Poor Perry keeps running into this mysterious clown lady that has ominous warnings for her and Dex. It appears that only they can see her...If I say much more, it would ruin it, but suffice it to say, if you like suspense, thrillers, horror, this is a must read! Thank you for this awesome book Ms. Halle!

Review of the Speaker For the Trees by Sean DeLauder

I received this book complimentary from the author in exchange for my review.Thank you Mr. DeLauder. I must tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. This book is out of my usual comfort genre, so I was surprised how smooth it read. It kept my interest and not once, did I think, "I must put this down and move on..."
Hedge is the main character in the story. He has been sent to Earth to observe and report on humanity's destruction of Plants and the Earth. (Before you start groaning, let me just tell you, Hedge is such a lovable character.) Hedge has a human wife, and the poor guy even eats her pork chops because he wants to make her happy... There are tender moments and alot of unspoken bonds between Hedge and Ann, he doesn't realize how much until he has to be away for a while and their existence is at stake... I have to stop here or I will spoil it for you. So, jaunt on over and get a copy of The Speaker For the Trees  by Sean Delauder. It is a quick read, and don't forget your toaster...
