The Passage by Justin Cronin


For a first book in this series and by a New author, I'll have to say that this book was good even though it was 879 pages long. I usually cringe when it comes to really long books unless its three books in  one..lol.

Special Agent Brad Wolgast was brought in by the military to help them bring 12 prison guys on death row to them for something he was never told that they were doing. Wolgast wasn't happy when it was brought to his attention that he was to go get a 6 year old girl and bring her back to them. The girls name was Amy and she was sitting with a sister named Lacey. Lacey was trying to keep her safe but what Lacey didn't know was that her life and Amy's were going to be intertwined for many, many years.

When things at the compound goes bad. Wolgast is given the girl by the doctor who created the virus which is what's going to kill millions of people for years to come. So he decides to find a place for them to hide but then a flash happens and he dies. Amy then leaves.

The last colony or so they think is where a good amount of people were brought to when they were kids. It was done to protect them. But if they knew what was coming and whom wasn't coming back. They should be happy tell things started to happen to make the colony have problems. The Peter and a few others go to do somethings outside to find things that were needed. But Peter meets Amy who is about 14 year old. What he doesn't know is that she follows him back to the colony and things start to happen even more.

People start acting funny and its a small group including Amy and Peter all plan to leave and go looking for the truth of what really happened and started the whole thing.

Well, being that this book is so long and I enjoyed reading it a lot. I'm not telling a whole lot more. But, I'll say its worth every page of this book. I'm off to start my next book. Pick up a good book like this one. I bit you'll want to know what happens. Can't wait to read the second and I hope that its as good.

Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick


This is the third book in the Hush, Hush series and I'll have to say its quite good. Nora is kidnapped and has been gone for about 5 months. She wakes up in a cemetary with no memory of what happened or much of anything else. What she doesn't know is that she was kidnapped by the black hand. The leader of the Nephilim's. She gets taken to the hospital where her mother is called and explains to Nora what has been going on. Her mother also says that Hank and her have been dating for awhile. Which Nora isn't real happy about.

After being home for a few days she calls her friend Vee. She tries to get Vee to tell her what she's been missing so she can get some of her memories back. But Vee lies to her and later on Nora confronts her friend about it.

She also has a run in with a few fallen angels and meets Jev or formally known as Patch which she doesn't remember yet. But he saves her from almost getting herslef very hurt but, not just once but twice. After awhile Patch helps Nora remember who he is and what she ment to him as will as that her loved her. She knew deep down inside of herself that she felt the same way.

They both had one problem and that was trying to get rid of the black hand which is Hank. He had been playing mindtricks on Nora and her mother and Nora knew that she didn't trust him at all. Patch wants to kill Hank but Nora says she wants to be the one to do it. Over all they need a plan some how to be able to do that.

By the end of the book everything comes together and a few surprising things as will. Will things work out between Nora and Patch? Well, I guess I'll just have to wait for the next book. I'm off now to start my next book.

Note to readers of this blog...I will be adding books to my blog now after I finish a book. It will matter how often between the new posts and the old ones because, of how fast I can read the books and finish them and I thank everyone of my followers and those that come to view my blog for your surport.
