I thought it was about time I posted the second lot of reviews for the books I’ve read this year. I’m a little bit behind on the challenge I’ve set for myself, but hopefully I’ll catch up soon. Like last time, these are being cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge.

AUTHOR: Susane Colasanti
"I think I fell a little bit in love with the character of Tobey when I was reading this book..." )


BOOK/SERIES: Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls Book #1)

AUTHOR: Susane Colasanti
"Despite being a little confusing to follow at first, I enjoyed this book..." )


BOOKS/SERIES: Perfect Chemistry (Perfect Chemistry Book #1)
AUTHOR: Simone Elkeles
"This kind of reminded me of my Ma's trashy romance novels, except without all the sex." )


BOOKS/SERIES: Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry Book #2)
AUTHOR: Simone Elkeles
"When I started reading this, I actually had to go back a couple of times and check that I hadn't accidentally started reading Perfect Chemistry again by mistake." )


BOOKS/SERIES: Leaving Paradise
AUTHOR: Simone Elkeles
"I preferred this book much more to the Perfect Chemistry novels by the same author." )


BOOKS/SERIES: WVMP Radio Series: Wicked Game, Bad to the Bone, Bring on the Night
AUTHOR: Jeri Ready-Smith
These were probably my favourite three books that I read during this two month period..." )


BOOKS/SERIES: John Dies at the End

"I have to be honest: I had no idea what was going on half the time reading this. And it was AWESOME..." )


BOOKS/SERIES: Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife
AUTHOR: Mary Roach
I was expecting to love this book after reading Stiff, so I was kind of disappointed..." )


BOOKS/SERIES: Cults: Bizarre Rituals and Murderous Practices Revealed
AUTHOR: Petery Haining
"This was the worst book I've read all year. I don't even want to write a review for it..." )

Okay, so I'm finally getting around to doing this blasted thing. Yay me! Bear with me, I'm not exactly sure how I want to format these posts yet, so consider this a trial run. Will be cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge (yes, even though my challenge is to read 100 books. Whatever).


BOOK/SERIES: The Yellow Wallpaper
AUTHOR: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
"I was kind of horrified by the end of this..." )

"I studied Speculative Fiction for a year in high school, and my English teacher was always a big fan of steampunk novels..." )


BOOKS/SERIES: Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers

"Does it make me sound morbid to say that I really couldn't wait to get into this book?" )


BOOKS/SERIES: Lucky: A Memoir

Aaaaaaaaand here we have ANOTHER new years resolution I plan to commit to this year - reading 100 50 100 books. (I've joined [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge  , THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!) This will include the stuff on my new ebook reader, library books and books I own. The only rule for myself is that I CANNOT have read them before. I want to read completely new stuff this year!




Wish me luck!
