Review : I Don't Want To Kill You

I Don't Want To Kill You
Dan Wells
Tor Books
From Goodreads: John Cleaver has called a demon—literally called it, on the phone, and challenged it to a fight. He’s faced two of the monsters already, barely escaping with his life, and now he’s done running; he’s taking the fight to them. But as he wades through his town’s darkest secrets, searching for any sign of who the demon might be, one thing becomes all too clear: in a game of cat and mouse with a supernatural killer, the human is always the mouse.

In I Am Not a Serial Killer we watched a budding sociopath break every rule he had to save his town from evil. In Mr. Monster we held our breath as he fought madly with himself, struggling to stay in control. Now John Cleaver has mastered his twisted talents and embraced his role as a killer of killers. I Don’t Want to Kill You brings his story to a thundering climax of suspicion, mayhem, and death.

It’s time to punish the guilty.

And in a town full of secrets, everyone is guilty of something.
My Review: To say I loved this book is putting it mildly. This book was amazing and I am happy to see that it is continuing. Mr. Wells has a life long fan now and I hope that's what he wanted . The third book is better than the previous two and I gushed over them. So continue to write Mr. Wells and I will continue to buy and read.
       The character in this book really grip you and pull you in, as a series it is my favorite one I have read in 2015 and I hope it goes on for another five years at least. I usually read series when all the books are out because, I hate waiting years to continue the series. Forgetting everything I have read in the books before because I am not much of a re-reader, but these characters have been burned into my memory and I will not forget them . When the series is completed I will re-read them just for fun in October in time for Halloween of that year. 

Review: Zombie Blondes

Zombie Blondes
Brian James
Feiwel & Friends

From Goodreads: From the moment Hannah Sanders arrived in town, she felt there was something wrong.
     A lot of houses were for sale, and the town seemed infected by an unearthly quiet. And then, on Hannah’s first day of classes, she ran into a group of cheerleaders—the most popular girls in school.
     The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in appearance: blonde, beautiful, and deathly pale.
     But Hannah wants desperately to fit in—regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: if she doesn’t watch her back, she’s going to be blonde and popular and dead—just like all the other zombies in this town. . . .
My Review: Okay, the cover pulled me in and I did read the synopsis. I was looking for some great zombie action in this book and that is not what happened. This book was Okay for me. I read this book and at first I was drawn in. It was set up pretty well and kept me reading and then I started to wonder when it was going to pick up and at points it did but then it fell off again. I trudged on because I do not "DNF" books. I will put the book down and try again later or give it a few days then pick it up again . I knew I would not pick this book up again so I finished this book. The felt the author could have done more with the premise of this book but sorry he didn't

Review: The Espressologist

The Espressologist
Kristina Springer
Square Fish

From Goodreads: What's your drink of choice? Is it a small pumpkin spice latte? Then you're lots of fun and a bit sassy. Or a medium americano? You prefer simplicity in life. Or perhaps it's a small decaf soy sugar-free hazelnut caffe latte? Some might call you a yuppie. Seventeen-year-old barista Jane Turner has this theory that you can tell a lot about a person by their regular coffee drink. She scribbles it all down in a notebook and calls it Espressology. So it's not a totally crazy idea when Jane starts hooking up some of her friends based on their coffee orders. Like her best friend, Em, a medium hot chocolate, and Cam, a toffee nut latte. But when her boss, Derek, gets wind of Jane's Espressology, he makes it an in-store holiday promotion, promising customers their perfect matches for the price of their favorite coffee. Things are going better than Derek could ever have hoped, so why is Jane so freaked out? Does it have anything to do with Em dating Cam? She's the one who set them up! She should be happy for them, right?
My Review: I saw this book and must admit I loved the cover. So, as usual I picked it up without reading the synopsis. If I had read it I don't know if I would have picked it up. I am glad I did. This was a short ,quick, quirky, and cute read. The character development was lacking but what we do learn about Jane was quite interesting and her relationship with Cam could have been explored more, but for a change of pace I did enjoy this book and thought it was a sweet story
