Fiction Friday: Holy Bible

This book sucked so much I don’t even feel the need to link to it on Amazon. The protagonist is blatantly racist, sexist, and narcissistic with no real moments of redemption from his dreadfully immoral characteristics. The writing is seriously lacking as well. The reader doesn’t have to even get past the first mini book …

Fiction Friday: Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book

This Fiction Friday is a stray from the normal review of YA and Adult fiction. Primarily because I didn’t have a lot of books in my store that didn’t involve making the reader cry. This is good stuff week after all. I decided to go with one of my favorite children’s author Shel Silverstein and …

Fiction Friday: What Happened to Cass McBride

Well I was hoping to read more over vacation but I ended up swimming and catching up with my friends so I can’t do this Fiction Friday on the book I wanted (worst thing in the world, I know).  I didn’t finish it yet, so I will do this one over another YA book in …

The following is a guest post Fiction Friday review by Dali DeLancey, aka Dalillama. Dali is a regular commenter over at SNR.

There is this thing that happens to many adolescent girls. It often happens in middle school but sometimes waits till high school. Somehow a rumor gets started and you suddenly become a pariah.

Hero* by Perry Moore is another book in the YA genre.  Hero centers around the story of a young man, Thom, who realizes he has superpowers. Thom’s  superpowers ought to …

Fiction Friday: Galápagos

I am not going to gush heavily over Galápagos by Kurt Vonnegut. It was a pretty good book and a generally good story but it wasn’t fantastic. I am not sure if it was because I expected too much. I mean, Vonnegut has been heavily recommended to me in the past and this was my …

Fiction Friday: The Book Thief

I have to resist the urge to just say “OMFG go read this book!!!!” ten times. This book was so good it reduces me to adolescent squeals of excitement when I usually talk about it. Seriously, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is in my top two favorite books of all time and OMFG go …

Dr. Jobe Martin. Part 1

 Last week I saw a set of DVDs sitting on the desk of a coworker. I stopped to take a peek. Hmmmm, “Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution…” I quickly set the disks back on his desk, exactly the way I found them, and moved on as if nothing had happened. I don’t like to get …

Fiction Friday: The Hunger Games

I wanted to do Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut but I didn’t get finished in time.  Plus it was more appropriate to give you guys this review as the movie is coming out this month. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is another YA book and another first in a trilogy*. It is the story of …
