Book Review: House of Night book 5: Hunted

So I finished reading the 5th book in the House of Night Series, Hunted, by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. They're a mother and daughter team! How sweet! No. No it's not sweet. It's TORTURE. I know the mom, P.C. Cast, has written numerous novels, and from what I hear, she's a good author. So it must be the daughter, Kristin, that mucks this whole thing up. because the whole time I'm reading this book, I'm thinking to myself, HOW ARE THESE WOMEN NY TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHORS?!?!

Finished Books

i just finished "kill me" by stephen white! IT WAS Fantastic! this is the first book i have read by white. i decided to read kill me because a friend of mine thought i'd like it. number 14 of white's alan gregory series, this was the first book written from the point of view of a character other than alan. because of this, several fans, my friend included, were hesitant to embrace this book. i really liked the level of intimacy that came with having the story narrated by the main character instead of his shrink alan. i plan on reading other books in the series, but haven't decided whether i'll read chronologically or jump around. i'm curious to see if i like any of the others!

before kill me, i read stiff by mary roach. this book was a wildly entertaining look into "the curious lives of human cadavers". i can't really say enough about it, if you're even remotely curious, pick it up!

next i'm going to detour slightly and read something that sounds less like i have an obsession with death: Jeffrey Steingarten's "The Man Who Ate Everything" wahoo!!!
