Day Shift by Charlaine Harris

Fantasy | Paranormal

I have read and enjoyed many books by Charlaine Harris, but I just couldn't get into this one. I read about 5 chapters and then stopped.

I did not read the first book in this series, and maybe that is important.

I will probably try to read this again at some point as I have heard good things about the series, but for now, it just wasn't for me.


Atlanta Burns by Chuck Wendig

Young Adult | Crime Fiction

This book was different than most Young Adult novels I have read, in fact it could be a blurry line to say this is young adult with the strong content.

I don't think I would have chosen this book off the shelf, but I'm glad I had an opportunity to read it. Atlanta Burns is one tough chick. The characters are raw and gritty, the story is captivating, and who doesn't love a female vigilante.


Poorly Drawn Lines: Good Ideas and Amazing Stories by Reza Farazmand

Humor | Comic

OK, this was hilarious.

Farazmand writes and draws comics with simplicity. I loved the tone of the book and  I was actually muffling giggles while reading this in a bookstore.

This short, humorous book can be read in about 30 minutes if read straight through. The comedy style may not be for everyone, but I do believe everyone can find the humor in a least one comic strip in the book.

Not much else to say. It was a funny book. I laughed. Mission accomplished.
