Review of Spare Some Change by Gamal Hennessy

Again, Mr. Hennessy delivers a wallop in a short story! This one makes you think, and think hard. Are you going to be scared to turn off the lights tonight? No. Are you going to be scared to ride on public transportation? Maybe...

This story is so many things all in one short pop. You could go off on the tangent that you don't know a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Or, you could think that society has a serious problem with our homeless, OR you could just not ride public transportation ever again! Lol

Either way, you have got to read this book! It doesn't take long. It definately makes you think. While you're thinking, you think, "oh wow, I am really glad I am not THAT guy."

I give it 4 out of 5 books. Read it. AND it's free today on Smashwords. :) Free is awesome! So, see you have no excuse...

Review of Afraid of the Dark by Gamal Hennessy

I got this one free today from the author, Gamal Hennessy. You can get it free today also, along with two of his other books. Just copy and paste this into your browser. 

A short read that packs a punch. Don't try to out-think this one, I guarantee you won't win! The ending is perfect for the story, but the dark is not what you think it is... Thank you Mr. Hennessy. Well done.
4 out of 5 books.

Lupus is really getting obnoxious!(Or... I had a lot of reading time this week.)

  Soooo, I missed a couple of days of work this week due to the darn joint pain and fatigue that all lupies come to know and hate. ;) One good thing was that it gave me a little extra reading time.
I finished Hyde: An Urban Fantasy by Lauren Stewart.

I started reading this, expecting it to be similar to the Hyde we all know and love. It's not. Ms. Stewart went in a different direction. Which was good. It's like, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde with a twist. It definately kept me turning pages to see what would happen next. Don't expect scary, it's really not. However, it is a good read. I gave it 3 out of 5 books. Hugs!

Review of The Jakarta Pandemic by Steven Konkoly

Wow! This one had me hooked from the beginning. I could not out it down. Like I mentioned earlier, it's scary in an "oh my gosh, this could really happen" sort of way. The storyline is completely believable and the characters could be anyone's neighbors. I would definately recommend this book. It could have played on the medical side of the tracks, but it really didn't. Just enough was mentioned to relate the seriousness and establish the tone for this book.
5 out of 5 books! Read this one!

And a HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my awesome hubby!!!! I love you babe! Mwa.

Lupus won yesterday

Sorry I didn't get to post yesterday. Lupus won another day, I was stuck in bed. Grrrr.  Anyway, I had some great reading time at least. :)

I finished Twixt and gave it 3 out of 5 books. I had started it Monday because it's October and I wanted a "witchy" (pretty sure that's not a word :)) read. Twixt was a quick read and the heroine was a very strong lady who has an amazing relationship with her daughter. I loved that.

Just started the Jakarta Pandemic by Steven Konkoly. It is really good so far. I will get back to you soon with a review. Hugs!

Review of Hush by Anne Frasier (Theresa Weir)

 Hi! I hope you are all having a good Monday. Mine is ok for a Monday. I got out of the office for a little while and went down to the plant. It was kind of nice to be down there again. I broke a nail though, and my manicurist is going to scream! Lol Who gets their nails done to go grease a crusher??? :D

Anyway, now on to the book... I just finished Hush by Anne Frasier, (who, incidentally is Theresa Weir) the story was really great. It was a tad slow in the beginning, but not bad. Get through that and you get a real treat of a story. Just make sure you are not squeamish. It was a good choice for October.

I give it 4 out of 5 books.
Not sure what to read next... Any suggestions? Leave them in the comments section, please. (You could win a FREE e-book from Amazon.) :)

Review of Deliver Us From Evil by Dan Dillard

It's me again! Lol Just read a very short short called Deliver Us From Evil by Dan Dillard.
When the blurb says this is a short, it means it! So I will make my review short also. 
It was ok. 2 out of 5 books. 
I cannot find a cover picture to post. Sorry. :( 

Review of The Dex Files by Karina Halle

Absolutely, positively loved this book. I wanted to hate it. (Ridiculous, since I love all of the other books in this series.) Let me tell you why. 
In the other books, Dex is alternately a sweetheart and an a$$ to Perry. You love him, then he does something to tick you off, then he comes to the rescue, then he's sexy, then he's rude... You love to hate him, then he makes you sigh and melt (and tingle). ;p 

This book gives you the insight into Dex's mind and you get to see the reasoning behind his actions. (I am trying not to give anything away here...) 

Anyway, it's a fantastic book AND you get a lot of answers. Yup, definately recommending this one to EVERYBODY. Only after you have read the other ones first. 5 out of 5 books! Yay Karina! I forgot to put a picture of the cover in the first post, because I'm an airhead!

Review of The Quarry by Mark Allan Gunnells

This story is set at a college, near an old abandoned mining quarry... I work at one that's not abandoned lol so, I thought this would be a good way to start October off. I was right. This was a great book. The suspense and action are non-stop. No harm comes to the cinnamon rolls... Lol Definately recommending this one. 4 out of 5 books.

It's Wednesday and I am so ready for Friday! However, I am not ready for the slide into Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! It seems like from here on out, we are in a free-fall with no parachute! It just goes sooooo fast...

Review of Broadmoor Revealed: Victorian Crime and the Lunatic Asylum by Mark Stevens

Truthfully, I'm glad this one is a quick read. It was told in such a way that it was simply a documentary. That's it. I am not sure what I was expecting, but this was not it. Maybe that had alot of bearing on my rating. The story could have been creepy, or disturbing, it could have gone off on many different tangents. However, I felt that it just kind of plodded through stating cases. I gave it 2 out of 5 books.

My Review of Stained by Ella James

Different subject from what I'm used to. That was a good thing in this case. This story kept me involved. The characters were likable and I found that I ended up rooting for them. Definitely worth a read! Overall , I would give it 3 out of 5 books.
Stained by Ella James

Hmmm... It's October. I have no idea what to read next. The book club wants to do creepy, which I am totally up for, but are there any truly creepy books out there anymore? I don't want gory, mass murderer broke out of prison creepy, I want, "OMG I have to sleep with the lights on" creepy. Lol Any suggestions?
How about we make it more interesting... The one who suggests the creepiest book will win a free ebook! Hugs!

My Review of The Atlantis Code by Charles Brokaw

I really enjoyed this book. It seems that I always enjoy books with an Atlantis, Bermuda Triangle-y type theme.( Yes I know triangle-y is not a word, but it's early and I need more coffee! Lol) Anyway, This book grabs you from page one and doesn't let go until the end. This one gets 5 out of 5 books.
Thank you Daisy! :D

I would have posted a pic of the cover of the book, but for some reason, it's not working for me right now. Darn computer gremlins... it is October... Hugs!
