Book Reviews

Breaking Dawn ~ Stephenie Meyers

Hallelujah!!! I am finally done with this damned series. Ugh, what a long winded ordeal this was. The entire book revolves around the imminent war between the Cullens and these ancient Italian vampires. Bella and Edward get married, they consummate their marriage on some island, and Bella immediately gets pregnant. Vampires can reproduce in such a manner? Apparently so. This… Read more →

Dead and Gone ~ Charlaine Harris

I have now caught up with the author, meaning there are no more Sookie books for me to read until Harris cranks out another one. At least the next season of True Blood will be starting soon and I can get my vampire fix that way. The books are definitely fun. The best way I can describe them is that… Read more →

New Moon ~ Stephenie Meyer

OK, at what point did anybody else start getting irritated with the main character, Bella? Plus the whole love triangle thing between human, vampire and werewolf just really isn’t working for me. Having said all that, I will finish up the series. It looks like there is only one book to go. Apparently, the author had written a draft for… Read more →

Twilight ~ Stephenie Meyer

Well, I sped through the Sookie Stackhouse books and am now caught up with the entire vampire series by Charlaine Harris. So, in order to keep going on the whole vampire kick that I am apparently on, I decided to embark on the Twilight series. Talk about a quick read. I got through the first book in two days; nowhere… Read more →

Heart Shaped Box ~ Joe Hill

Joe Hill (aka Joe King), the son of my favorite author, Stephen King, has written a very good ghost story. If I sound a bit shocked it’s because I was. I’ll admit to being somewhat jaded before I even began the book. How much would this book read like an attempt to copy Stephen King? It was similar in the… Read more →

From Dead to Worse ~ Charlaine Harris

From Dead to Worse is number eight in the Sookie Stackhouse vampire series. Basically, it’s the same theme as the other seven; vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, oh my. One complaint that I have in regards to this book is that there wasn’t enough of Eric. Yep, I hate to have to admit to it, but Eric has definitely caught my… Read more →

The Empty Chair ~ Jeffrey Deaver

This title is another Lincoln Rhyme novel. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with this one. The Empty Chair was simply not a very thrilling thriller. Especially after reading The Bone Collector and The Coffin Dancer. However, I think Jeffrey Deaver is a great author and I enjoy reading his books. This one just happened to… Read more →
