This review is pending. I have tried to read this book for TWO WEEKS but I can't seem to get passed page 58! I could not get in to this book. I tried. I really did.

I think what was holding me up is the excessive fluff talk in this book. I'm all for plot development, but please don't spend 40 pages talking about the same thing! I think I literally spent 40 pages reading various characters asking Toby (the young werewolf) if he remembers how he ended up naked in a dingo pen. Of course, Toby can't remember. Even I picked up on that after 20 pages! Ugh.

I think I've reached a part that might lead to something interesting, but I'm not willing to try finishing this book just yet. There are too many delicious books out there worth my time. No need to deprive them by drudging through this book any longer.

If anyone has read this book, I would be interested in knowing if it does get any better. Would it be worth trying to read again?

  2. I was really disappointed by this book. I kept hearing how funny it was. I didn't see the humor. The 13 year old kid was annoying in my opinion.
    I feel bad for giving one of my students a hard time about not finishing the copy I gave him. I had to apologize today, since I couldn't even finish the book!

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…
