Hope Sparks(After the EMP book 7) by Harley Tate


GENRE: Post Apocalyptic

Finally the two groups merge just in time to fight a small band of drug addicts. I really enjoy the voices that Tate gives each of the characters. There is no stagnation in this series. I look forward to see how the group faces new challenges.

No Strings Attached (The Pink Bean, #1) by Harper Bliss


GENRE: Lesbian Romance

This book was a quick read. The plot flowed really well. It was nice to see a main character my age although I can not relate to coming out that late in life. The internal conflict Mickey goes through really shows the complexity of coming out. The characters overall were very likeable and I have already gotten the next book in the series.

Staying Alive (The EMP #2) by Ryan Westfield


GENRE: Post Apocalyptic

The characters are on the move in the second book of [The EMP]. Also we meet a new character, John, Max's estranged brother. The author gives each character their own voice by giving each chapter a different character. I love when authors do this because it give you as a reader a wider range of points of view and perspectives to create you own visuals of the story. On to book three.

The New Order (The Young World #2) by Chris Weitz


GENRE: YA, Post Apocalyptic

This book picks up right where book one left off. The writing is exceptional. I love how [Weitz] gives each of his characters a distinctive voice by alternating chapters. This allows the reader to get a feel for the character and different point of views. The end of this book he even hints at more to come with the voice of one of the characters. Ready for the next one.

Hood (American Rebirth #1) by Evan Pickering


GENRE: Post Apocalyptic

A well envisioned post apocalyptic world. The goal is survival and the plot keeps you moving on a quick pace with lulls long enough for you to catch your breath. The characters are developed and really drive the story. I am looking forward to more books in this series.

The Blizzard of '88 by Mary Cable


GENRE: NonFiction, History, Disasters

This is a topic I love to read about, well this and any other disaster. This book was well researched but it seemed a bit repetitive. It just kept jumping all over the place. The facts are correct and the stories are good but there may have been a few too many included.

Must Love Chickens by Jea Hawkins

Must Love Chickens

GENRE: Lesbian Romance

This was a cute story. It was nothing heavy but more like a feel good love story. It was well written and the characters were developed even the secondary characters. Sometimes you have to run away to find yourself and have a chicken like you. It is a nice, enjoyable, light read.
