    "The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup."

    Ron says: "WOW!!!"
    "OMFG"

    I love this series! Abby Normal is the funniest most sarcastic and annoying character I have ever met. She makes the book for me.

    In 1994, director Peter Jackson released the film Heavenly Creatures, based on a famous 1950s matricide committed in New Zealand by two teenage girls embroiled in an obsessive relationship. This film launched Jackson's international career. It also forever changed the life of Anne Perry, an award-winning, best-selling crime writer, who at the time of the film's release was publicly outed as Juliet Hulme, one of the murderers. A new light was now cast, not only on Anne's life, but also her novels, which feature gruesome and violent deaths.

    I couldn't finish it. To much info of her books and her after prison, but not much about the crime.


    What could Joanne Drayton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It should be shorter and more about the crime.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She didn't.


    What character would you cut from The Search for Anne Perry?

    I couldn't read far enough to know.

    The end of the world has come and gone. The Earth is buried in asteroid dust that mutates human DNA, and 16-year-old orphan Glory and her brother are among those affected. Glory’s got a secret: once she loses control of her emotions, the intensity of her gaze can kill. If her Deviant ability is discovered, she’ll be expunged - kicked out of the dome to be tortured and killed by the sadistic, scab-covered Shredders who are addicted to the lethal dust covering the planet.

    Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come to Winter Carnival - not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society - where an obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it?

    The prequel to the New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series. Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the Earth, and mankind fell to disease. Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next. Now a disease of rage and lunacy races across the eastern United States, and there's something suspicious about its origin. Worse yet, it's mutating, and all evidence suggests that it will bring humanity to its knees.
