Bookish Discussion: Abandoning Books... *GASP*


When you're reading, do you ever feel like the book is just not doing it for you? You want to love the book but it's just not interesting enough, or maybe it's lacking something, or it's just plainly boring! When this happens, what do you do? Do you power through till the end, or do you just quit because you can't take it anymore?

Blurb:

The truck should have turned Libbi Piper into a Libbi Pancake — and it would have, too, if Aaron hadn’t shown up and saved her life. The problem? Aaron’s the local Grim Reaper… and he only saved Libbi’s life because he needs someone to take over his job. Now, Libbi has two days to choose between dying like she was supposed to, or living a lonely life as Death Incarnate. Talk about a rock and a hard place.

And the choice goes from hard to sucktastic when her best friend shows up marked: condemned as a future murderer. Libbi could have an extra week to stop the murder and fix the mark… but only if she accepts Aaron’s job as Reaper, trapping herself in her crappy town forever, invisible and inaudible to everyone except the newly dead. But, if she refuses? Her best friend is headed straight for Hell.

My rating:

When I first came across this book and saw that it was about reapers, I knew I had to read it! Call me morbid (see what I did there? lol), but I LOVE reapers! And this book did not disappoint! It was awesome!

Blurb:

All Mick Bogerman wanted to do was teach his little brother how to swim in the coolest swimming pool in town. He didn’t ask to take care of a bunch of Sea-Monkeys while he was there. He certainly didn’t mean to morph one of them into a mermaid by feeding it genetically enhanced super food. No one is more surprised than Mick when the creature starts luring unsuspecting adults into the deep end of the pool. Adults who don’t resurface.

Join Mick as he battles a powerful adversary: a bloodthirsty mermaid who hypnotizes with a golden gaze, shatters glass with a piercing shriek, and reveals her true menacing self by the light of a full moon.

My Rating:

In this second installment of the Slug Pie Stories, Mick will teach you, as the title suggests, How to Rid Your Swimming Pool of a Bloodthirsty Mermaid... you know, if you're ever in such predicament ;)

Blurb:

Armed with a pitchfork, miner’s hat, and map, Mick Bogerman dares to hunt for pirate treasure in Zombie Cave. His little brother Finley is tied up at the beach. Literally--Mick tied him up. No one needs a little brother tagging along when you’re going to slay the undead.

But Mick soon wishes he’d taken some human company with him, because lurking in every corner, reaching from every crevice, is another hungry corpse. No wonder the place is named Zombie Cave! And finding treasure in the twisty tunnels is a lot harder when your map disintegrates. And man-oh-man the cold, dark tide chases fast. But the worst part about fighting off ravenous flesh-eaters is the one monster deadlier than a regular zombie...the worst of the worst...Pirate Pete.

My Rating:

How to Navigate Zombie Cave and Defeat Pirate Pete is about exactly what the title suggests... Mick sets out to this Zombie Cave in the search of Pirate Pete's treasure and defeat him while he's at it. Why is he doing this, you ask? It's really sweet actually. You see, Mick wants to find the treasure because he wants to help his mom financially! Awwws! Such a sweet kid :)
