I'd like to say first, that this book isn't really a book for young readers. I'd say older teens and up for this book. The rest of the series seems fi ...more

The Demigod Files (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
4.01
The short stories in this collection are fun, the rest is silly. The kids will probably like it, aside from the stories, it's too juvenile for adults.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: No Future for You (Season 8, #2)

Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse, #5)

Enjoyed this very much, but this seemed like a bit of a bridge book, also I'm starting to feel a little overwhlemed by the number of Sookie's suitors.
