Bookreporter.com Reviews : Zoo (September 07, 2012)

You may not agree with all of the points of view presented here, but at the very least it will keep you reading --- and thinking --- from first page to last.


Nevermore: The Final Maximum Ride Adventure

This is an intriguing and truly bittersweet end to an amazing journey.


To Catch a Vampire

The second in Harlow’s F.R.E.A.K.S. series (Mind Over Monsters, 2011) reads like an homage to Harris’ tales of Sookie Stackhouse, though Bea seems to take herself a little less seriously.


Hanging by a Thread

I still have Sophie Littlefield on my auto-buy list, but I’ll be hoping for more stories like the awesome Aftertime series and less of the sleepy mysteries like HANGING BY A THREAD in the future.


The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace

Povich’s in-depth research, narrative skills and eyewitness observations provide an entertaining and edifying look at a pivotal event in women’s history.


Telegraph Avenue

It’s a quiet call not for a blind fight against homogenization or gentrification, but to hope for some sort of continuity, a single, simple place where people can gather to talk and laugh, and it’ll be just like old times.


Unspoken

UNSPOKEN demanded my complete attention and I wolfed it down in one sitting. The ending suffers a bit from series-itis, and that is the only thing that knocked it down from 5bats to 4.


Shadowfell

I have long been a fan of Marillier’s books and SHADOWFELL is no exception.


Clean: A Mindspace Investigations Novel

If you like The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, this series looks to be tailor made for Harry and Murphy fans.


Full Blooded

Blending robust urban fantasy worldbuilding with super hot paranormal romance, FULL BLOODED should satisfy fans of both.


Blackwood

BLACKWOOD offers a unique supernatural twist explain the disappearance of the colonists of Roanoke.


A Perfect Blood

I highly recommend this series if you're looking for an action packed, mystery base story filled with colorful supernatural characters and of course the witty snarkiness that is Jenks! And Rachel can be pretty snark too!


Every Day

If you’re looking for a YA romance that both ignores and plays with all of the usual gender and sexuality and racial barriers, this is the perfect one.


Shake Off

Poignant and maddening at the same time, this is a journey into a new-age spy drama.


The Distance Between Us: A Memoir

This book would be fabulous required reading for college freshmen or, even better, for freshman members of Congress.


No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden

No Easy Day often reads like a gripping novel as the author recounts remarkably vivid details about the weeks of preparation, the agonizing wait as the go-moment grew near, the scary Black Hawk crash that almost ruined everything, and the eerie minutes in bin Laden’s bedroom as the lifeless body of the world’s most wanted man lay bleeding.


The Yellow Birds: A Novel

“The Yellow Birds” is brilliantly observed and deeply affecting: at once a freshly imagined story about a soldier’s coming of age, a harrowing tale about the friendship of two young men trying to stay alive on the battlefield in Iraq, and a philosophical parable about the loss of innocence and the uses of memory.


NW: A Novel

In “NW,” Smith raises smart and intriguing questions about the ever-growing gap between rich and poor, about issues of culpability and, above all, about the daily brutalities of modern urban life.


The Eternal Flame

The cast of The Eternal Flame is comparable to the one in The Clockwork Rocket, but here there are three main characters whose research, action and personal struggles are the focus of the novel


The Asylum Interviews: Trixie

Aside from my frustration with wanting to learn more about Trixie, I enjoyed getting to know more about Gage’s world, how it works, and meet some more of his friends.
