Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Book Summary:
Every other day, Kali D’Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She argues with her father. She’s human.
And then every day in between . . . she’s something else entirely.
Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism.
When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her, and unfortunately she’ll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive . . . and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.

My Review:

This book had so many Buffy the vampire slayer feelings. I did enjoy the story idea of the book. And also the characters within the book I like. I happen upon this old book on instagram. Glad I find it at library and read it.

Kali, our demon hunter in the book. I liked her a lot in the book. She is brave and daring. Willing to risk her life for people she hardly knows. Then at school she is just a new girl hardly anyone knows her. Once she see the head cheerleader bitten, will she be able to save her life? Both her demon world and human life will collide. Will Kali be ready to let her new friends in?

This book is filled with demon killing. There some twists and turns along the way. If you into demon hunters type of books, then you might enjoy this book. I glad I found it on social media.

Happy Reading!!!

My Review:

This book is so good and very empowering. Such an emotional rollercoaster ride this book. The story was good and the conection with the characters felt real.

I really liked Starr in the book. I thought she was brave in it. She tries hard keep her life separate from her school life. Once a she watches her friend passed before her eyes, both her worlds collide. Who will stick by Starr side in the end?

The book was so moving and very detailed written. I was glad I finally picked this book up before the movie comes out in Oct. 19. If you have yet read this book, I suggest you do before the movie comes out.

I was so excited to return to Fear Street. These books got me hooked onto reading. What I love about R.L Stine you can read them out of order. The curse is explain in the beginning of the book a bit for those who don’t remember years ago. Also the book can be fore new and old readers a like.

The story there is a curse years ago between the Goodes and the Fears. Yes I forgot what it was. Lucky the books of the story is released in the young adult section.

Yes now onto the book with a curse. Who say getting marry was gonna be easy? When your a fear and a deadly curse is placed on your family. It up to to one sister to save her family from the curse and rekindle her sister bond. Will she make it in time?

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.
Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.
Yet it’s immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp’s twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.
And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

My Review:

I know I’m reviewing an adult read. I did enjoyed Riley Sager other book, The Final Girls. So i was excited for his new book. He is gonna to be my go to guy for good adult thrillers. If you guys not into adult thrillers, then you can skip this review.

The detailed summary give most of the book away. It what written on back of book. Don’t forget it’s a thriller and there be some twists and turns.

I enjoyed the main character story, Emma. I liked how the story switches up between her time at camp in the past and now. There’s a lot of questions on what happen years ago and Emma the main suspect. How can three campers just disappears years ago? Emma faces her past when she goes back to camp. Will she be able to find answers to the past?

The book is a slow start like any mystery/thriller read. Once it picks up, you will keep guessing until the very end on what’s going on. Beware, Riley knows how to shock you in the end. In mood for good thriller, then this book be a right for for you.

Happy Reading!!

The Supervillain and Me by Danielle Banas

Book Summary:
Never trust a guy in spandex.
In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.
That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.
After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.

My Review:

I adore this book a lot. I really like the story idea of superheroes roaming around and they get their first supervillian. Did enjoy all the characters in the book. Which was a lot to keep track of.

Abby, I liked her in the book. I enjoyed her. I don’t care for superheroes attitude in the book. It was fun watching her not easily impressed with supers. Once Iron Phantom appears, things change. She wonders who he is under the mask after he save her life. Can she trust a man wearing black ?

Iron Phantom, mysterious guy who save people but accused of being a supervillain. I love him in the book. Think he just misunderstood in the book. He can’t be all that evil if he keeps saving Abby life, right? There got to be a reason why he making a mess in the city.

Iron Phantom reminds me of another supervillian who is misunderstood at times. I do enjoy villains stories a lot. How they became evil or just mistaken being evil also. Take Loki as an example.

This book was action pack and very fun read. For fans of superheroes and supervillains a like will enjoy this book. Lots of guessing on what’s going on in the book and a cool plot twist.

Happy Reading!!!

Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson

Book Summary:
Monday Charles is missing, and only Claudia seems to notice. Claudia and Monday have always been inseparable—more sisters than friends. So when Monday doesn’t turn up for the first day of school, Claudia’s worried. When she doesn’t show for the second day, or second week, Claudia knows that something is wrong. Monday wouldn’t just leave her to endure tests and bullies alone. Not after last year’s rumors and not with her grades on the line. Now Claudia needs her best—and only—friend more than ever. But Monday’s mother refuses to give Claudia a straight answer, and Monday’s sister April is even less help.
As Claudia digs deeper into her friend’s disappearance, she discovers that no one seems to remember the last time they saw Monday. How can a teenage girl just vanish without anyone noticing that she’s gone?

My Review:

This book was such another good read.. Enjoy the story line a lot. It was a huge guessing game on, Where was Monday. The main character, Claudia I like her determination to find her best friend.

Claudia, and her best friend Monday done everything together. They have such an strong friendship bond. When Monday fail to show up for school, Claudia knew something was wrong. With no one backing up Claudia claims, it’s up to her to find or save her friend, Monday.

This mystery read will leave you feeling emotional wreck until the very end. Very sensitive subject with abuse so warning some young readers beforehand. Looking for something new to read this summer, then pick up Monday’s Not Coming.

Be warn there some shocking twist and turns there leaves you in tears.
