Murder Below Montparnasse
3 of 5 stars
not what i was expecting so i didn't finish it
March Violets
4 of 5 stars
Really liked the historical setting of this novel. definitely checking out the rest of the series.
Full House
3 of 5 stars
now i know why i don't really read romance novels. The plot just got more and more farfetched (READ: Ridiculous) the closer towards the end. Definitely lite reading and while entertaining i am probably too jaded to read true chick lit.
Zombie Fallout

A Dirty Job
4 of 5 stars
Started slow but once it picked up it was pretty humorous- the narrator for this Audi book brought the characters to life. I was really shocked by the end tho!
Married With Zombies
5 of 5 stars
I love the premise- very clever and funny.. reminds me a lot of the zombieland movies but more from the female perspective. I really can't wait for the next book to be available on overdrive audio...
California Demon
5 of 5 stars
I love this series. I'm actually a little sad I'm already on book three cos that means I'm halfway done:( I must say that the reason I'm zipping through them is I'm listening to the audio books. The reader really brings the characters to...
Carpe Demon
4 of 5 stars
Its what would have happened if they did a series about Buffy the Vampire Slayer all grown up. It was clever and I have downloaded the next two in the series. Great reads for commutes and people who work at a computer all day.
