    Book Review: Save Karyn by Karyn Bosnak

    I have been dying to get my hands on a copy of this book for years! Finally found one from BetterWorldBooks.com last month and decided to order it. It finally arrived in the mail a couple of days ago. I know what you’re probably thinking, I should just have bought an e-book or download one for free, but I’ve always been a fan and fond of reading the “book” itself, as in in physical form. Anyways, here’s what today’s book is all about. Taken from GoodReads.com — technically from the back of the book itself. 😛 Drowning in $20,000 of credit card debt, shopaholic Karyn Bosnak asked strangers for money online —…

    Book Review: Borrowed Children by George Ella Lyon

    Read this book when I was is the fourth grade. I didn’t understand it well back then, all I knew about it was it’s about a young girl that was forced to stay home, manage a household and take care of a newborn baby. Nevertheless, I loved it. Here’s the summary from GoodReads.com: Twelve-year-old Amanda Perritt is pitched head-first into adult responsibilities when she has to quit school to care for her newborn brother and invalid mother. She gets an excape, she thinks, when she’s offered a trip to stay with her grandmother and her sophisticated Aunt Laura in Memphis. But during the visit, she discovers unexpected parallels between her…

    Book Review: Omerta

    What is there left for me to say for such a capturing, entertaining, and page-turning, magnificent piece of literature? I don’t mean to sound overrated here, but this book is just as magnificent as The Godfather itself. Here’s the summary from GoodReads.com: To Don Raymonde Aprile’s children he was a loyal family member, their father’s adopted “nephew.” To the FBI he was a man who would rather ride his horses than do Mob business. No one knew why Aprile, the last great American Don, had adopted Astorre Viola many years before in Sicily; no one suspected how he had carefully trained him … and how, while the Don’s children claimed respectable careers…

    The Zombie Whisperer by Jesse Petersen

    Although the story is quite predictable and the cover is a little off, still this final book in the Living with the Dead series is a better ending than I have expected. In this last book, we follow Dave and Sarah who are living a quiet life in a farmhouse somewhere in Montana after their heart pounding adventure in the previous book. This time though, Dave was reluctant to leave the farm but Sarah thinks otherwise, until a chopper landed on their yard revealing Nicole and The Kid asking them to go back to some lab in Seattle with them, wherein they have continued the research about the cure and…

    Eat.Slay.Love by Jesse Petersen

    Yes, I pledge guilty for being addicted in reading the books in this series and you can put all the blame to Jesse Petersen. I just had to buy the third book (in ebook form) in the Living with the Dead series after finishing the second one. Although the second book was lengthy enough, still I can’t get enough of Sarah and David; I just sort of fell in love with them and their story. I honestly liked this book better than the previous ones in the series. I guess it’s because of the less predictable scenarios and more action filled pages. Zombies doesn’t seem to be the main problem of Sarah and…

    Flip This Zombie by Jesse Petersen

    As I have mentioned with my previous review of the first book in the Living with the Dead series, the story left me asking for more and true enough, the second book in the series filled the lacking space that the first book left. So I acquired an ebook of the second book and started reading away as if I’ve nothing to do at all. In the second book, we follow Dave and Sarah forming some sort of a trade business during the apocalypse by means of zombie extermination. They were tasked to kill zombies for other survivors in exchange for supplies, and with their team work and what seemed…

    Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen

    Thanks to Manel Loureiro, I decided to go on a Zombie novel reading marathon. I am having my internship and the vacant time could get really boring, so I decided to give Jesse Petersen a shot with the first part of the Living with the Dead series, Married with Zombies. Married with Zombies tells us the tale of a married couple Sarah and David who, at the time of the spark of the apocalypse, were at the brink of divorce and are going to couple’s counseling. During one of their sessions they noticed that the road was unusually practically empty, considering that they live in Seattle wherein traffic was just…

    Book Review: Bohemia by Veronika Carnaby

    Sometime in mid-December last year, I received an e-mail from Ms. Veronika Carnaby herself, asking me to write a review for her debut novel, Bohemia. Along with the e-mail came a free digital copy of the novel itself, and I couldn’t be more grateful about it. I still could not believe that she chose me and my blog to write and feature a review about her novel; it’s such an honor to be one of the chosen few. So enough of raving, here’s the book’s plot: Book Summary: In her debut novel, Veronika Carnaby picks up where the Beat Generation left off. Set in 1960, Bohemia chronicles a group of…

    Book Review: Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End

    I kicked off my 2013 with a Zombie novel because I was really getting impatient from waiting for the season comeback of The Walking Dead. I am just really grateful of Goodreads as it has been my guide to great books recently. I have my Goodreads account for a while now, but it wasn’t until recently that I made use of it. LOL I found a good zombie book written by a Spanish author and the first book in his series was translated in English, so I decided to go with it. I immediately looked for an ebook, bought it and just started with my adventure. Plot from Goodreads: The…

    Book Review: Anne Rice: Interview with the Vampire

    “It was as if when I looked into his eyes I was standing alone on the edge of the world…on a windswept ocean beach. There was nothing but the soft roar of the waves.” ― Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire Plot: Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force—a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write. This is obviously a classic, what else can I say about it? It has award winning…
