Ghostland by Jory Strong

Linda Cha, November 9, 2012

I admit I was captured by the book's cover. After reading the summary, I was intrigued since shamans are important in my culture. The idea of a post-apocalyptic world where creatures of the night are real is fascinating. I really enjoyed the book. I loved the characters. I haven't read a lot of stories featuring Djinns so to have shamans and Djinns, that was enough for me to buy the book. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Work these last few days was a little torturous. It's been a while since I've been so captured by a story and the work day could not go by any faster. All I wanted to do was read it. It's erotic, romantic and filled with action. I want more like this.

Night by Elie Wiesel

Linda Cha, September 22, 2012

The first time I read this book, I was in high school and it was one of the books we were assigned to read in Honors English. I thought it would be just another assigned reading. The first night we were supposed to read only three chapters. I ended up reading the entire book, which isn't hard it wasn't that thick. I also cried, the sort of sobbing cry when your heart hurts. By the time I was done with the book, I could not help but be stunned at the intensity that such words could bring forth. It is SUCH a good book. Now that I am much older, I have been meaning to buy this book to add to my collection. I'll probably cry if I read it again.
