The book has great ideas but the execution of the story, particularly the ending.. left me wanting. I read online that the next books goes completely away from the television shows situations.. so I may read them, treating them as 'alternate universe' type stories.. If they are similar to the first Dexter novel.. then im not so sure that I will enjoy reading them.
This book sucks big time

Holiday time, off for a bit over 3 months until uni starts up again. That means lots of time at the beach and lots of time reading!

Bite Me: A Love Story by Christopher Moore - 7/10

Its not one of his better novels.. I hope in his next novel he returns to concepts and subject matter that are a bit more inspired..

Zen, did you already finish the previous three, or do you read several books at once?

Im done with all of them.

Everytime I post a pic + rating, its because Ive already finished reading it. The reason why the dates I finished them are so close, is because two of them I had already been reading.

'The Girl That Played With Fire' took me at least a week and a half to finish. I had read 200 pages, then put it down.. then 100 pages, then put it down.. and so forth.

I had actually read half of 'Bite Me' a month ago but I placed it down and never returned to it. So I finished the second half in one day when I decided to pick it back up.

'Prayers for Rain' took me a couple of days to finish. Due to my being able to work and read simultaneously.. I am able to finish books quickly.


Now Im debating weather reading Moonlight Mile the latest Lehane novel or the latest Reacher novel 'Worth Dying For' by Lee Child.. which just was released, also.

I read about 200 pages or so from that book and had to stop. I was going to grind through it for the sake of it, but didn't find it worth it.

Just finished:


Now about to start:


I was on Sandstorm for forever. It was good, but IDK, I just got bored of it. Then finally, I just finished the last 60 pages this past weekend because there are so many books I have on my list that I want to blast through, but hadn't because I wanted to finish Sandstorm first (If I had gone on to another book, I would never go back and finish it, lol).
