Another month and I managed to keep up with finishing two books a month. I’m really proud of myself that I am able to keep this month. I really enjoy reading and it’s been a really great break to watching Youtube videos. I’ve become obsessed with Shane Dawson lately and I need to stabilize myself a bit. I listen to his channel ALL day at work. I love that I can listen to books, podcasts, and music at work. I know that I’m a bit early for this, but I know that I won’t be finishing any other books this month.
Barely Alive by Bonnie R. Paulson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Even though this book was totally morbid, I was so into it and the chemistry between the main two characters. I winced so much through this book, but not in a bad way. The descriptions were so vivid for the “zombie” feeds and such. I also thought how it was interesting that the whole apocalypse started because boys can’t keep it in their pants. lol. Seriously though, this book kept me well entertained. I also thought it was interesting that if you were related to a zombie, there is some type of connection that keeps your love ones from smelling good…unless it’s your significant other. But parents and children should be good. I am intrigued enough to want to pick up the next book in the series, but it’s not at the front of my list. It’s something that I will go back to if I need a break from the redundancy of the same type of books that I read. Just enough variety to keep my interest: supernatural and romance.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I honestly think that the mysterious, who-done-it aspect of the book is great and tastefully done. I finish the story believable and the troubled romance in this one excellent. Reminds me of star crossed lovers. Destined to be together and destined to be apart. What I don’t like that gives this story two stars is the fact that this is basically one book that got pulled apart to make more “mini” books to make money. Now, I am not against short story series. I am really in love with the Peachville High Demons series, which are short books written in a series format. They are complete stories in and of itself. This book just felt like a pieced apart book, not a complete story. Even the Webster Grove series, those books felt complete. I really did enjoy the story, but it feels like a money grab to me.

What have you guys been reading? I’m really all over the place when it comes to books. I read EVERYTHING. I just love all genres and I don’t try to limit myself to one thing. I tend to stick to others that I like in regards to I read everything that they put out and then, I sample other authors work from Amazon on my kindle. I ended up finding authors that I try to read every book from. Next year, my plan is to borrow a book from the library every month from an author that I love and have wanted to finish series off. When I take my month vacation from work for my dad’s surgery, I’ll pick up 4 books and see how much I’ll be able to read.
