Twitter-reviews

I've been reading lots of things and using all of you to keep me honest! And now I'm going to do it some more! And tell you about the books in 140 characters or less! Probably with lots of exclamation points, because I'm apparently addicted to them!

Anyway.

16. Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick
EMP-pocalypse plus zombies plus smelling people's emotions equals lots of things to digest! Still digesting. With exclamation points.

17. Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey
Hell's hitman returns to earth to kill things and be very, VERY snarky. Color me highly amused.

18. Dust by Joan Frances Turner
A zombies-are-people-too story in which zombies and humans catch a very nasty disease. Lots of gross out moments crossed w/introspection.

19. Graveminder by Melissa Marr
LOVE LOVE LOVE WHY ISN'T THERE A SEQUEL? Awesome book about the two people tasked to keep the dead resting peacefully in a small town.

20. Losers in Space by John Barnes
Amusing story about kids stuck on a spaceship with a sociopath. Plus lots of CRAZY COOL space travel stuff inspired by Buzz Aldrin.

21. Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
Multi-POV story about zombies in a steampunk Victoriana world. Long, but worth the effort. Bram the zombie is awesome.

22. The Chameleon Wore Chartreuse by Bruce Hale
Hilariously funny MG that satirizes dime detective novels. This one's about a missing boy. And a dame. And a Gila monster named Herman.

Whatcha reading?

These all sound great! Your short recommends make me want to read them all! A couple were already on my TBR list, though, so I'll get to them eventually! :D
