My Review Since You’ve Been Gone is a book that touches on some real issues and, for the most part, deals with them in an authentic way.  Edie and her mother Sydney have been living on the run, escaping her violent father.  The way their life has been described is so real… the hiding, the half […]

My Review This book was very different from pretty much anything I have read before!  I just don’t know how I feel about it.  It is a book that makes you think, the story line so unusual and so gripping.  I was totally engrossed, just needing to know what was happening.  But the book was a complete […]

My Review I absolutely loved this book!  I loved the emotions it stirred.  I loved the characters.  I loved the 90s music references.  I loved the mystery and the intrigue.  I loved it all! Lainey’s character is one that many of us can relate to, I think.  She is grieving and sad and lost.  Nothing […]

My Review Boneseeker was far different than I had anticipated.  I have never been big into Sherlock Holmes, but I love mysteries and this seemed like something new and different, something outside of my usual reads. The story centers around Arabella Holmes and Henry Watson, the children of the famed Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. […]

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse

My Review I can’t get enough of this series!  I love Angel, our white trash zombie.  I love everything about her as a character.  She’s fantastically flawed, fantastically damaged, and fantastically honest and true to herself. Marcus, Marcus, Marcus.  The on-again, off-again love interest.  Sometimes I love him, sometimes he annoys me.  In the first […]

My Review Hands down, Angel Crawford is one of the most unique protagonists I have ever read.  She is so incredibly flawed, yet true to herself, that I cannot help but love her.  She is smarter than she gives herself credit for, clearly a product of a lifetime of being told that she is a […]

My Life as a White Trash Zombie

My Life as a White Trash Zombie
Posted 7 May 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I absolutely love this book!  It is irreverent, gritty, raw, and yet filled with characters that are still sympathetic.  The main character isn’t just flawed… she is damaged.  Yet, even with all of that, there is a lot of snarky humor that I would not have not expected. In a weird way, this […]

My Review I have really enjoyed this series and I am sad that it has ended, but The Goddess Inheritance is a lovely ending!  I think this one was the most action-packed yet. Kate is faced with some terrible choices this time, and it made her an even stronger character.  I had started to have some […]

My Review Goddess Legacy is a collection of five short stories, all about various gods and goddess in the world of Goddess Test. The first story, The Goddess Queen, tells the story of Calliope/Hera from her own viewpoint.  For reasons I can’t explain without spoilers, Calliope was not one of my favorite characters throughout the rest of the […]
