Bad Hair Day


Bad Hair Day is a YA comedic horror novel, and a follow-up to Bad Taste in Boys, by Carrie Harris.

Reading Bad Taste in Boys first is not a prerequisite here, yet I’d still recommend it. You can check out my review here.

Future Doctor of America Kate Grable is thrilled to geek-pieces to be shadowing the county medical examiner as part of her school’s premed program.

But of course nothing can go smoothly in Kate’s life, right?

Nope. Curing a zombie virus wasn’t enough, apparently.

When the county medical examiner she’s following gets arrested for a gruesome murder where the victim was literally torn apart, well, she just has to investigate.

As more bodies start to pile up, Kate finds she’s searching for a murderer that is big, hairy and possibly has claws.

That’s right. She’s chasing a werewolf.

Her logical brain, however, refuses to believe that. Zombies are one thing, but werewolves?

Evidence continues to build though, as Kate also deals with flying encyclopedia’s, a costume-wearing brother, an irritated best friend, and a boyfriend who she fears she may have ignored (accidentally) a little too long.

She couldn’t just have a quiet day of regular ol’ autopsies, could she?

Bad Taste in Boys was a hilarious, fresh take on zombies with a nerdy, intelligent, awesome heroine in doctor-in-training Kate Grable. I’m elated we get to follow her again as she lands another weird medical mystery!

Mixing absurd humor, including boundless witty dialogue, with a new take on werewolves, Carrie Harris is again treating us to some good old fashioned FUN in Bad Hair Day.

Secondary characters bursting with personality, a sometimes gory plot in the most light-hearted way, and a first-person voice to salivate over, I’m in book-love with Kate Grable and hope for many, many more books featuring this character!!!

It’s a fast, entertaining read meant to be enjoyed with a smile on your face. Mission accomplished!

*Note to my lovely Bibliophile Support Group fans, I'm starting a new job today! It's an exciting, great opportunity for my family and I but it could also mean changes to the blog's schedule IF my reading time is cut shorter because of it. I ask you all to understand this and take it into consideration if my posts get scaled back. But for now, everything is full steam ahead! Thanks for reading!!!

Reckless

Reckless is a YA fantasy adventure by the ever-revered (for good reason) Cornelia Funke.

Jacob Reckless has been passing through a mirror portal in his father's forgotten (or, rather, ignored) study for years now. After his father disappeared and his mother became a shell of her former self, he found it. Since then, it's been hard to stay tethered to his world - instead, he's become more and more connected to the alternative option.

In fact, he's managed to make a name for himself as a treasure hunter. And always by his side is a loyal vixen named Fox, a shape-shifter. She's probably the closest thing he has to a friend - but Jacob still considers himself a loner. But he's become comfortable with the different creatures, monsters, and magic this world has to offer - even though right now they are at war with a stone people called Goyl. None of that interests him. He just seeks out his mysterious objects and fetches good prices.

But that's all about to change. …

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…
