Dexter’s Final Cut (#7) by Jeff Lindsay Book Review

“Life teaches us that human thought almost never walks hand in hand with logic, and it is usually counterproductive to raise the point.”

Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television’s hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan.

Double Dexter (#6) Jeff Lindsay

Jeff Lindsay really found his ideal character in Dexter Morgan and he can write him really well – to a point where you have a continuous narrative and a character that does not stray outside of his well defined psychotic self.

Dexter is filled with witty comments about everyone and everything, can make you smile with delight as he complains about the Miami traffic or the money-grabbing attitude of tourist locations or can make you groan when he does stupid things like click on a link in an email from an unknown sender.

“I sighed; as comforting as it may be to some of us, sarcasm, like youth, is wasted on the young.”

The Crooked Staircase * Dean Koontz

I must say I was really excited to pick up Dean Koontz again. I didn’t realize it was the third novel in a series following Jane Hawk, superwoman 🙂

The 4.09 Goodreads rating seemed promising, the synopsis ticked all the boxes and I turned on the audiobook on my daily commute to work.

The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer Book Review

Interesting read picked up from the charity boxes only due to the Twilight reference of the author but actually a pretty decent YA book.

Winter Moon: A Novel – Dean Koontz – Book Review

ABVMY.jpgI love Dean Koontz’s books because you just never know what his rich imagination is going to come up with…but whatever it is it’s always a huge surprise. This is one of the scariest books that he’s written in all of the years I have had the pleasure of reading his works. Usually there is a suspenseful story with some horror moments thrown in….this one has a dark undertone with both gory and psychological horror from the start to finish.

Saint Odd * Odd Thomas * Dean Koontz Book Review

Amazement is an emotional response, astonishment an intellectual one.

This is the last book in the The Odd Thomas Series by Dean Koontz. I read them all and loved them all. I did not want to read this last instalment because I had a feeling. I knew that something was going to happen to Odd and it will mean his end. But.. as all things must come to an end, so did Odd’s journey to meet his beloved. Saint Odd won the Goodreads Choice Award for Horror in 2015.

I came home to die and to live in death. My life had begun in the desert town of Pico Mundo, California, and I had remained there until I was twenty, when I lost what mattered most to me. During the twenty-one months since then, I had traveled in search of my purpose, and I had learned by going where I had to go. That I had come full circle shouldn’t have surprised me, for we are born into time only to be born out of it, after living through the cycles of the seasons, under stars that turn because the world turns, born into ignorance and acquiring knowledge that ultimately reveals to us our enduring ignorance: The circle is the essential pattern of our existence.

Tears, go back inside!

A Prisoner of Birth * Jeffrey Archer

WOW. Just WOW. I loved this book! I think the time Jeffrey Archer spent in jail did wonders to his insight into the way the system works and what type of characters you can expect to see in a prison.

He did writeCat o’nine tales which is a short collection of stories collected from prison but this book takes the whole lot to a new level. If you’ve read The Count of Monte Cristo, you’ll definitely see some resemblance.

ARE YOU WASTING OR INVESTING YOUR TIME?

Time is the most precious value we have. Time is the greatest equalizer of human beings. If we don’t ant to admit his and to treat time with respect then we will only have to lose. It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, healthy or sick, you will only have 24 hours a day either way, and you should try to use them wisely.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips * What I did for love

I think I’m becoming a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips! Her books are always so dramatic and the love stories so intense, I have to leave at least a couple of months between the books. As a quick list, here are the books I read so far and their reviews:

If tomorrow comes – Sidney Sheldon

if-tomorrow-comes-400x400-imadmy9p82b3cgswIf you ever wanted to read a book about a girl end up in prison for a crime she did not commit and then trying to escape and take her revenge on the people who put her there, this is the book you want. If you want to know how to scam people of their wealth, this is still the book you want to read. If you want to hear about a modern Robin-Hood and at least 5 heists explained, keep on reading!

In his amazing style, Sidney Sheldon brings to life Tracy, a beautiful and independent woman, who is not only smart but also very ambitious and driven. From the moment I started reading “If tomorrow comes” I struggled to put it down.
