This or That Survival Debate: A Rip-Roaring Game of Either/Or Questions (Edge Books: This or That?) by Erik Heinrich
This or That Survival Debate: A Rip-Roaring Game of Either/Or Questions (Edge Books: This or That?)

Kids might find this book interesting. I did not. Maybe if it were just the questions, it may have been OK, but I found all the supporting information (while informative) to be distracting.

After the Fires Went Out: Coyote by Regan Wolfrom
After the Fires Went Out: Coyote

seldombites, January 2, 2014

I normally love apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, but I could not even finish this one. While it is technically well-written (no editing errors or things of that sort), it was boring, boring, boring! I will definitely not be reading the rest of the series.

Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien
Birthmarked

seldombites, January 2, 2014

The basis of this story is an interesting concept that is just realistic enough to be scary. The 'haves' are living lives of luxury inside the city walls, while the 'have-nots' struggle to make ends meet outside. But all is not as it seems inside the city. Despite a monthly tribute of newborn babies from outside the wall, genetic diversity has shrunk, causing an epidemic of haemophilia.

Birthmarked is a decent read, but not a brilliant one. It was interesting enough to read all the way through, but not so great that I will be looking to finish the series.

Mob Rule: Lessons Learned By a Mother of Boys by Hannah Evans
Mob Rule: Lessons Learned By a Mother of Boys

seldombites, November 3, 2013

Mob Rule is a hilarious look at what it is like to raise a bunch of boys. Told as a series of tales about the author's family instead of the usual dry self-help formula, this book will have you laughing long and loud. Anybody who has ever mothered boys will recognize the situations, Evans relates, but even mothers of girls will find some helpful advice (and not a few chuckles) within the pages of this antidote to the often unhelpful parenting manual.

Desperation by Stephen King
Desperation

seldombites, November 3, 2013

Leave on a holiday and find yourself fighting for your life and soul. This is the basis of Stephen King's Desperation. I love Stephen King. In my opinion no other horror writer can match him, and this is definitely one of his better novels. Scary, thought-provoking and uplifting, this book is difficult to put down. I recommend it to fans and non-fans alike.
