Necromancing the Stone by Lish McBride

Sequel to Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.  It is even better and funnier than the first book.

With gnomes named Gnomie Malone and Gnome ChompSky and a Sasquatch called Sexy Gary, you know this book will keep you entertained!  Sam is a great character you will cheer for, in spite of being a necromancer (someone who can raise the dead.)  Each chapter title is an old rock song, and adds to the fun spirit of the book.

Give it a try!

Win, lose, or draw: Six Months Later by Natalie Richards

six months later

You think your summer is going by fast! Chloe fell asleep during study hall on a sunny May day of her junior year and awoke to a dark cold classroom in November of her senior year. In this new life, she is finding she now has everything she wanted, but everything is terribly wrong!

•She is now dating the boy she had a crush on last year. But when he touches her, her blood runs cold

•She is an academic superstar and one of the most popular girls in school, but her best friend, since elementary school, wants nothing to do with her

Chloe is desperate to find out what happened. This new life doesn’t feel right and there are so many missing pieces.

Verdict: Win

This story moves along at a great pace and will keep you guessing.    I was guessing through half of the book about what caused Chloe’s memory lost and guessing through the other half on who Chloe could trust.

Afterworlds vs. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld


Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld is really two stories wrapped up in one neat package. One of the narratives tells the story of a young writer who wants to put off college after publishing her first book to pursue a career as an author in glamorous New York City. The second narrative follows the life of a girl who walks in the space between life and death after a terrorist attack at an airport.

I’m a fan of Scott Westerfeld.

I LOVE the entire Uglies series.

I LOVE the Leviathan series as much as pretty much any book I’ve ever read.

I even LOVE Peeps. Continue reading “Afterworlds vs. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld”
