I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

I Hunt Killers was first recommended to me by Giselle @ Xpressoreads and I downloaded it to my Nook. I figured this would be the perfect fall read and it was! Lyga takes us inside the mind of Jasper Dent the son of a famous serial killer. The tale was unique, creepy and captivated me. Call me sick, but I loved all the details about how a serial killer thinks and what drives them. Dexter fans should find this one appealing.

Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater

Pretty When She Dies is a deliciously dark urban fantasy that quickly draws you in. Filled with vampires, necromancers, romance and kick-ass characters Frater took me on one heck of a ride. As a book addict, there is the high I constantly chase, that only an awesome, epic book can give me. Pretty When She Dies gave me that fix.

The Lost Night by Jayne Castle

The Lost Night was an absolute pre-order for me. I love the Harmony and Arcane series. All of the books are designed to be read as a standalone, but I have read them in order since book one. The Lost Night offers up a suspenseful paranormal mystery with a healthy side dish of romance. Every time I open a Castle novel I find a delicious escape.

Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost

I have been slowly working my way through this series. Believe it or not I own the entire series and they have been collecting dust on my shelf. Do any of you have series like that? I love the crazy whirl-wind romance of Cat and Bones. Destined for an Early Grave delivered tons of action, life and death situations and created problems for Cat and Bone’s relationship. It kept me riveted from page one and I quickly consumed this over the course of one day.

San Diego 2014: The Last Stand of the California Browncoats

The Newsflesh trilogy is hands down one of my favorite series. Filled with zombies and complex lovable characters it is a series I will re-read again and again. When I learned through Bea@ Bea’s Book Nook that this novella was available I immediately hit the click, confirm, buy button on my Nook Tablet. This tale takes place at Comic- Con in San Diego in the year 2014. It tells the tale of one of the largest Kellis-Amberlee outbreaks. I loved every, freaky, horrible detail of this tragic event.

The Reckoning by Alma Katsu

I read and reviewed The Taker, Alma Katus’s first novel in this trilogy with a Goodreads group. I found it to be disturbing, compelling and one that left me breathless. I found myself repulsed and drawn to Lanore MciLvrae’s story and had to know more. You can see my review here. The group decided to read The Reckoning for August and again I found myself completely drawn to this tale and its fleshed out and complex characters. Katus is a powerful story teller and I encourage you to pick this trilogy up.
