Book review: Accidental Abduction by Eve Langlais

Accidental Abduction (Alien Abduction, #1)Accidental Abduction by Eve Langlais
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Megan's boyfriend tries to kill her by throwing her into the sea. An alien ship happens to be collecting aquatic samples from Earth and Megan is whisked away with the fish and other water dependent creatures.
Tren and Megan enjoy a banter-full relationship because...well, it leads to lots of sex.
The storyline was light, the length of the book was just perfect without stretching.
So if you like the following, then this book is for you:
* A possessive alpha male.
* An opportunity for women with full figures and large behinds to feel sexy and desired.
* A playful relationship where both couples are open from the beginning about their emotions.
* A story where you get to watch irritation with each others' quirks that turn into what makes that individual just right.
* Truly funny scenes to read.
* Sexy aliens and (some that aren't) :)

Book Review: Miss Mabel's School for Girls (The Network Series) by Katie Cross

Bianca joins Miss Mabel’s School for Girls because she must. Cursed since birth, she hopes to trick or coerce the one person who can lift it to do so.
She discovers, the hard way, the task’s toilsome nature.
I waited for the release of this book for a long time and made sure I stayed updated on its progress. This means my hopes were set too high.
The book never disappointed, it even spared a glance back at my expectations and tittered :)
A comparison to Harry Potter is unavoidable since the book is about magic and school for witches, but Miss Mabel’s stands its own ground when it comes to story line, plot, character development, and (especially) getting out of tight spots.
Bianca is not a perfect teenager but her flaws made her believable, easier to connect with, and feel concern over her fate.
I was treated to detailed and vividly described scenes with emphasis on characters’ attributes until each took shape and came to life right before my eyes.
Discoveries are dribbled throughout the book to create a sense of suspense, yet be aware that some of these discoveries aren’t necessarily truths. If you want to know more then burn the candle at night (like I did) and read more, or ignore your life to read more. 

Miss Mabel’s School for Girls was a delight to read because it kept its secrets hidden until the last moment. Even then, it held on to some.
Magic, tough girls, and an enchanting path to travel, a perfect concoction that will surly work its magic on you. 
Highly recommend it.

Book review: Zombie Books by Bart Gnarly

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kyle Moore lost a lot to zombies, and these aren’t your average zombies. Some of them look normal enough until they get up close and personal…close enough to have a piece of you in their mouths.

I enjoyed reading Zombie Books because it offered a fresh look at the apocalypse. The terror was caused by zombies, true, but they weren’t the only danger out there.

The book would have benefited from better editing, especially toward the end. Its organization was strange to follow initially but the moment the story snared me, I stopped paying attention to anything except its development.

If you like to read about zombies and how a survivor can exist in their world and kick their collectively rotting rears, then pick up this book. You won’t regret it.
