This is not a Test . . . is it ?

Bloggers I am sad to say this . I just have to tell you that I am not the kind of person that ,Ever wants to make someone feel bad! I do not encourage giving bad reviews and what I am about to tell you really isn't a bad per say review?!  This book that I am working on reading . I am really struggling with it.

First of all , I never ever claim to be a an English Major . No I most deffinetly dont  think that I have perfect grammar. But there has to be a way to explain what I've experianced while reading this novel. I never do this unless the book is unreadable. Then in that case I give up all together !

Let me explain my thoughts on the Novel This is Not a Test
by Courtney Summer.

I get the book, super excited after all everyone is talking about it . So I buy it on my Nook so I can read it right away. It starts of great ,the relationship with her and father is sad. Her thoughts on suicided and missing her only sister. But my question to you all is ?
Was any of you a little …

Stop the Publishers !!!

s



















Hey everyone are you enjoying the coolness outside on the East-coast or what? For once I am actually home all alone ,no teens making any noise in the background. In desperate need to knock Mommy off the computer .Because we all know America Teens need their internet access ! OMG the world is gonna end mom I need Face-book!!


        As a librarian assistant it is also part of my job to help out with cataloging . I am not to sure how all other libraries work it . But at our's the staff does a little bit of everything. I do alot of book suggesting for our library . Mainly for the Paranormal- Horror and Y.A genre.
The reason I get on to this subject is, something is really bothering with me. Publishers are really making things unnecessarily Ridiculous ,along with some authors !! Everyone knows how essential the Library is to a neighborhood, a community?   Why make it hard for us? As if we don't do enough struggling with funds! That you must hack up E-book prices?

Fighting to Survive By Rhiannon Frater

Now I know for a fact that I have spoken to you guys about this amazing writer named Rhiannon Frater ! Oh course also about the As The World Dies Series too. 
When I read the first one called The First Days . I couldn't put this book down!! Action pack from the very first sentence to the last and I was just so happy to find a great zombie read.
Fight To Survive most definitively took off to where it left off . Same character's & more . 

   Monster Girl gives :    5 Stars 
Over View From Good Reads

Picking up where The First Days ends, Fighting to Survive features the further zombie-killing, civilization-saving adventures of a pair of sexy, kick butt heroines and the men who love them. A hundred or so survivors of the zombie plague have found tenuous safety in the walled off center of a small Texas town. Now the hard work of survival begins—finding enough food; creating safe, weather-resistant shelter; establishing laws; and fighting off both the undead who want to eat them and…

And I will stand by that to the end. Due to another blogger calling herself Queen Zombie or Zombie queen. Which is fine you were here long before I . So it is only fair. Why am I rambling on , but anyhow I am still Lady Zombie or Monster Girl. Now on with the line up .

Friday the 13th unlucky day for some ,that's what they say.Incredibly, they found that in the region sampled, while consistently fewer people chose to drive their cars on Friday the 13th, the number of hospital admissions due to vehicular accidents was significantly higher than on "normal" Fridays. Their conclusion:  The risk of hospital admission as a result of a transport accident may be increased by as much as 52 percent. Staying at home is recommended." According to About.com on Urban Legends!  Some say the Italian culture the number 13 is unlucky and Friday period is an unlucky day! I can't even began to imagine what my ancestors would think ..I was born on the 13th.  But on another subject they say the 17th is the unlucky day in Italy! Also here is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the last supper or a Norse Myth, that having thirteen…
