Mini Reviews

Aftertime (Aftertime, #1)Aftertime ( Aftertime, bk 1) by Sophie Littlefield
Publisher:  Luna
Publication Date:  February 22nd 2011

Aftertime is a post apocalyptic/dystopian zombie story.  Cass is trying to find her 3 yr. old daughter after they were separated when Cass was taken by the zombies.  Somehow Cass survives the zombie attack and gets better. I immediately got sucked into the story in the beginning, the middle is a bit slower but still enjoyable.  My problem is with the end, it is so anti-climatic and all over the place.  The feel of the ending didn't really match up with the rest.  3 stars

The Flight of Gemma Hardy
The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey
Publisher:  HarperCollins Publishers
Publication Date:  January 24th 2012

The Flight of Gemma Hardy is a modern retelling of Jane Eyre.  I have not read Jane Eyre yet, but I hope that Jane is more interesting than Gemma. There is a lot of boring mundane fillers in this book, like Gemma got up and fed the pigs and cooked this and that. Blah!  2 Stars


Darkly Dreaming Dexter (Dexter, #1)Darkly Dreaming Dexter (Dexter, bk 1) by Jeffrey Lindsey
Publisher:  Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group
Original Publication Date: July 20th 2004

Fascinating look into the mind of a sociapath.  Dexter is a killer but since he only kills bad people, he thinks he's actually doing us a favor. Dexter is a very cold and distant character, he lacks any emotions.  I enjoyed the simplicity of the writing and story.  4 stars


  1. Oh man I heard a lot of good things about Gemma, but for whatever reason I still wasn't interested in reading it. You've convinced me to not worry about it.

  2. Oh, that Gemma book sounds kind of bad! :( that's sad.
