The Nightmarys by Dan Poblocki, 2010.
Timothy July has been having nightmares. About his brother, who is in a coma after being wounded in Iraq; about his best friend, Stuart, who is behaving like a jerk; about the old biology specimens in jars lining the walls of his classroom; and about Abigail, the new girl who seems to be a magnet for trouble. Or perhaps she is the cause.Oh my gosh! I could not believe it when I found out that I had won The Nightmarys. I had been working towards getting enough buzz bucks from Random Buzzers to get this book, now I own it. I'm so excited and cannot wait to read it.
Suddenly Timothy’s nightmares are coming true. His brother, his face decaying, approaches Timothy on the street. Stuart ends up in the hospital, terrified that monsters are stalking him. And the specimen jars are tormenting not only Timothy but his teacher as well.
What is the secret in Abigail’s past that is the key to these horrors? And can Timothy figure it out before his nightmares become a deadly reality?
The Nightmarys was won from Morgan of Books and Literature for Teens. Thanks, Morgan.
The hero, Zan-Gah seeks his lost twin in a savage prehistoric world, encountering suffering, captivity, conflict, love, and triumph. In three years, Zan-Gah passes from an uncertain boyhood to a tried and proven manhood and a position of leadership among his people. Themes: survival, cultures, gender roles, psychological trauma, nature's wonders and terrors.
Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country (Zan-Gah, 2) by Allan Richard Shickman, 2009.
I thought Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure and Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country both sounded like interesting books and so when I was asked if I wanted a chance to review them I said yes. Can't wait to start them.
Thanks to Bonnie of Earthshaker Books.
Zero warns Yuki to stay away from Maria Kurenai, the new Night Class transfer student, although he won't tell Yuki why. Kaname is also wary, and he sends Ichijo to watch Maria so she doesn't start trouble. Who is this girl, and why does she have the entire Night Class on edge
Zero is suspected of killing Shizuka Hio, the pureblood vampire who murdered his family. Incensed, the vampire senate sends assassins to Cross Academy to execute him. Will the Night Class intervene, or will Kaname let Zero take the fall?I was really hoping that VOL 3 would come in, but I think that the last person that checked it out must have lost it or something because it was marked as long overdue and then there was more information about it. Oh well, guess I'll just read about VOL 3 online.
Trouble is afoot in a Scottish fishing village as Constable Macbeth finds the pub empty, the church full, and the air permeated with fear. With the help of a journalist, Macbeth begins to ferret out the truth.Since I loved the last M.C. Beaton book I read I decided to give her other mystery series a shot. Only problem is I checked out book 19 first instead of book 1, hope they're more like individual stories with little continuation between books.
Well, that's it for me this week in books. Hope y'all have had an awesome book week too.
