My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow, I wasn’t expecting this story just from the summary alone! I was hooked from the very first page. What is to love about a post apocalyptic tale, a vicious, blood hungry horde, and a family thrust into turmoil, while trying to survive in a bunker built into the side the mountain? The answer is, all of it! I was thrown into the fray as a survivor. I was right besides Leo as she fought to save lives, and faced tragedy beyond belief. I watched as the the leader slipped into madness and tried to turn everyone against his daughter. I came to love an evil yet good Halloween, who at first was grotesque and now turned into something of an angle. I wish I can honestly say more, but if I do I’ll spoil the whole book! All I got to say is I can’t wait for the next book!

Book Summary:

The daughter of a radical doomsday prepper, Leo Marrok spent her entire life preparing for the end. A skilled fighter and perfect marksman, Leo is her father’s second-in-command when Armageddon comes to pass. Together, they lead a group of survivors to a secure bunker deep in the Appalachian Mountains.

Vincent Marrok is willing to take extreme measures to repopulate their broken world. Leo’s refusal marks her as a traitor. With father and daughter at odds for the first time, their frail community is thrust into turmoil. Until the unthinkable happens, a blood-thirsty horde arrives. The impending attack will destroy all that they have worked for.

To protect her home and everything she believes in, Leo puts her faith in the arms of the enemy—a creature only rumored to exist—the one she calls Halloween. An alliance born out of necessity evolves into feelings Leo is ill-equipped to handle.

The Dead Days Journal is a post-apocalyptic story of love and family told through Leo Marrok’s first-hand account and the pages of Vincent’s personal journal, giving two very different perspectives on what it takes to survive.

Mature themes, adult language, sexual situations, violence and gore. 18+

Maybe one day I’ll be able to finish reading this book. I’ve been trying for over a year and I just cant seem to get into it. I’m not saying it’s a bad storyline, or the writing is horrible because it’s not! This story is just not for me. I figured I’d finally give this book a review even though I haven’t finished it yet since I received this as an ARC from I do hope that if you read this book you enjoy it! As for me it just wasn’t my thing.

Book Summary:
Matheus Taylor didn’t ask to be murdered.

To be fair, the percentage of people actually asking to be murdered is probably small enough to be safely ignored, but he felt it was worth stating regardless.

His life might have been ordinary, but it was his life and he wasn’t done with it yet. Quin didn’t care. A seventeen-hundred old Roman, Quintus Livius Saturnius had a different view of morality than most people. Killing Matheus and hijacking his undead existence seemed perfectly acceptable to him.

Now, Matheus spends his nights running for his life, questioning his sexual orientation, and defying a mysterious new threat to the vampires within his city. Not that he set out to do any defying; he just wanted to be left alone.

Unfortunately, that was never going to happen.

Troubling a Star (Austin Family #7)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was one of my favorite books as a child. It was a story that stayed with me throughout the years. So when I stumbled upon the book in my shed I knew I just had to reread it. I found myself visiting my old friend Vicky and going on her adventure in Antarctica as a ghost spectator. I cringed when the notes of warning were left in her school locker, when she almost fell off the cliff. I wanted to cry when she was left alone on an iceberg. I wish I can say more but I don’t want to spoil the mystery that surrounded Vicky and her voyage. Happy reading my friends.

I loved going back into this twisted, totalitarian world. I got to visit some of my favorite characters and gain more insight into what was happening with the rebellion. I can honestly say this short story shocked me but I couldn’t put it down. And of course the ending left me wanting more. I hope the next part of the story comes out soon as I’m hooked! Read at your own risk, this story just might shock you and leave you wanting to read 25 Perfect Days.
