ZOMBIE BLONDES & THIEF BY BRIAN JAMES


Today I got in a great YA Horror Book that I wanted to share with you! This is a new author for me and I'd love to say THANK YOU for sending me this *COMFORT READING* that I need just so SO much! I know what you're thinking *Comfort Reading* shouldn't be scary, or horrifying, but I have to tell you, I LIVE for the THRILLERS, CHILLERS, HORROR and just plain SCARE the DAYLIGHTS out of me! It's called ZOMBIE BLONDES! And it sounds like a total "me" book!


Anyway, in this package, he also sent his YA book THIEF! So again, thank you brian. I'm going to give you the Synopsys on both of these until I get a chance to read them! ZOMBIE BLONDES is a beautiful hardcover book, honestly and I can't wait to get started!

Synopsis:


From the moment Hannah Sanders arrived in town, she felt there was something wrong.


Alot of houses were for sale, and the town seemed infected by an unearthly quiet. And then, on Hannah's first day of classes, she ran into a group of cheerleaders-the most popular girls in school.The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in their appearance. Blonde, beautiful, and deathly pale.


But Hannah wants desperately to fit in-regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: If she doesn't watch her back, she's going to be blonde and popular and dead-just like all the other zombies in this town . . .

About this book:


About This Book
A startling, uncompromising novel by the author of Pure Sunshine.


Elizabeth is a pickpocket and thief living on the edge in New York City. She and her foster sister, Alexi, are living with Sandra — a modern-day Fagin who takes in foster children and then forces them to steal things for her.


Even though she's sick of it, Elizabeth doesn't really question her life until Sandra takes in a third foster child, this time a boy. Dune is a completely lost soul, and Elizabeth begins to see the limits of her life. Sandra is not going to let her go easily — but Elizabeth knows she has to find a way out.


With brutal honesty and striking lyricism, Brian James has created a character you'll never forget, trapped in a situation that's frighteningly real.


So there you have it! I hope I brought you a little something new too! Thanks again to Brian James!

  2. I know doesn't it? I can't wait to get to them...they're piling up a little here at the hospital. My surgery is coming up quick and I won't be on for a while. But hope to be back on as soon as I can. I'll let you know when I'm gone.
    Thanks for supporting me J.Kaye.


    Cheryl, Thank you so much you always are so sweet! You know, I'm going to miss all of your comments as well. Your support is always appreciated as well. I don't know what I'm going to do while I'm not here. I'm of course very scared and nervous, but what has to be done, I guess has to be.

    XOXO
