The Bad Seed by William March
The Bad Seed

Tina Blacksmith, September 22, 2013

The Bad See is creepy, not because it is about murder, but because it is about a child that kills people. In today's society, when we watch the news, all we see is murder. It's not as shocking as it probably was when this book was written. The Bad See is a really good read!

The Best of Joe R. Lansdale by Joe R Lansdale
The Best of Joe R. Lansdale

Tina Blacksmith, September 22, 2013

Joe R. Lansdale is a wonderful writer. I especially liked "Bubba Ho-Tep" and Incident "On and Off a Mountain Road". Lansdale will make you laugh, but he also has some serious stuff for good measure. Read won't be disappointed!

Sorrow Floats by Tim Sandlin
Sorrow Floats

Tina Blacksmith, January 30, 2013

After reading "Skipped Parts" by Sandlin, I became a fan. I loved reading about Sam Callahan, his mom Lydia, and Maurey, the teenage mother of his daughter. So, when I read that there were more books focusing on this crazy bunch, I wanted to read them. "Sorrow Floats" focuses on Maurey Pierce, and I found it highly entertaining. I laughed so many times, just like when I read "Skipped Parts". Tim Sandlin is a great author, and I look forward to finishing "Social Blunders" in the near future!

Skipped Parts is full of laughs and there's a good story in there too! I really enjoyed this one, and look forward to more of Sandlin's works!

Some compare this book with Hunger Games. All I know is that it was an enjoyable read and I am sure I will read it again!
