Fablehaven / Brandon Mull

This is book one of the Fablehaven series and it doesn’t disappoint.  I enjoyed reading about the sanctuary with all of the mystical creatures and the two young kids who are stronger than they could imagine as they work to save lives and the sanctuary.

Pre-teen read.


Black Numbers / Dean Lappi

I list this book as ADULT READING.

Definitely different.  I was intrigued by the idea that mathematics was the core of the power and magic, but I’m still out on whether I actually liked the book.  It was slow, but it’s book one in a series and book two hasn’t published.  I have nothing to help judge whether the writer lacks or if book one was just slow in establishing the foundation for the rest of a great series. Time will tell.

Lethal People / John Locke

This was an easy read.  I felt like I was reading a man’s journal or maybe listening in on a conversation at a bar while one guy tells another about his last adventure.  It made me smile and next time I need a light read, I’ll pick up the next one in the series.

Naked In Death / J.D. Robb

MY FAVORITE, I really like this series.

This is the first book of the “in death” series by J.D. Robb, alias for Nora Roberts.  Lieutenant Eve Dallas is the main character and in this first book she meets Roarke her future husband.  There is the right amount of romance mixed in with the murder cases Eve solves.

The Way Of Shadows / Brent Weeks

This is my first book about assassins.  It was like reading a period piece, but without the place really existing. It started great and ended with me wanting to read the second book.  It didn’t grab me by the shorts though and so I wonder what book about assassins would.

Killing Floor / Lee Child

I like the way Lee Child writes Jack Reacher, it makes for a good read.  This book was really good.  While there were several good parts and the killings were gruesome, what I remember most – Jack’s brother is dead.  No matter how I tried to get past it, I couldn’t.  My heart hurt for him.

Moon Dance / J.R. Rain

The fact that the main character is not just your average vampire, but is a private investigator, a wife and a mother fascinated me.  However, the writing really needed editing.  It made me clinch my teeth when I would read the same thing again that I had just read shortly before.  Because of the story line and Samantha (main character), I think I’ll read the other two books.
