Book Review: May Day

If the murderer you’re tracking is a vampire, then you want a vampire detective. Just maybe not this one. It’s not that Jack Valentine is bad at her job. The youngest member of Oxford’s Seekers has an impressive track record, but she also has an impressive grudge against the local baron, Killian Drake. To get to the truth, Jack will have to partner up with her worst enemy. As long as she can keep her cool, Drake will point her to the ringleaders, she’ll find the murderer and no one else will have to die. Body bags on standby.

Book Review: Killian’s Dead

Love is for losers.

Until she meets Winta. In the space of a second, everything is different. Winta knows what she wants and for one night, what she wants is Jack. It feels like the start of forever.

Then Winta disappears and Jack faces a choice: should she go back to her life, or track down the only girl who can change it beyond recognition?

​One thing's certain: Jack has no idea what she's getting herself into.

Book Review: The Things They Carried

Throughout my academic career, I have read snippets of this book. A chapter here, a few paragraphs there. Normally, it was an activity set by one of my English or Writing classes in high school and college. And although I enjoyed O'Brien's writing and could feel his pain tugging on my heartstrings, I have never had the opportunity--or courage--to read the entire book. I decided to change that this summer. I ended up reading this entire book in not only one day, but one sitting.
