The Diary of an Immortal by David J. Castello

THE DIARY OF AN IMMORTAL (1945–1959) is the story of twenty-one-year-old U.S. Army combat medic Steven Ronson, a man who escapes the constant inundation and threat of death in World War Two after he discovers an immortality formula designed for Adolf Hitler during the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp in April of 1945.

Steven begins consuming the immortality formula and, after realizing that aging and death no longer control his life, travels to Manhattan to realize his childhood dream of becoming a jazz saxophonist on 52nd Street. The immortality formula gives him supernatural powers and fantastic musical abilities. His performance catches the attention of a disgraced British missionary and his adopted niece who knew the Buddhist monks in China that have guarded the original formula for thousands of years.

After a series of disturbing and prophetic visions, Steven accepts an invitation from the ex-missionary to journey to Xian. In a mountain monastery outside of the city, Steven discovers the incredible truth about the formula and the monks, and the interstellar origins of Jesus Christ and the human race. But time is running out−the German occultists who helped bring Hitler to power in the 1930s have selected another Aryan messiah, and this time he has the formula. Steven cannot allow the nightmare he experienced in Germany to happen again. @goodreads 



I have said it more than once, but I'm saying it again. "Holy crap on a cracker!"

I got a print copy of this book through Smith Publicity and I thought it sounded different so I gave it a try. I mean the blurb states an immortality drug designed for Adolf Hitler and that was all it took. How cray is that thought?


So the American medic named Steven Ronson was in Germany during World War Two. He and some of his mates go to the concentration camp 'Dachau' and well, find some atrocities as you can well imagine during that time. But he also found some pills and some notes from a doctor talking about them being an immortality drug. Steven decides to snag the whole lot and starts taking them. <--HELLO, who takes some pills from anywhere that you don't even - NEVERMIND!

It turns out they really are immortality drugs and they have a freaking history that goes back thousands of years.

Steven returns home and things happen with the family and he ends up moving away and becoming a sax player. But there are some magical things involved in his playing and other stuff going on and because of this he is found by a man and his niece. They know all about these immortal monks and they want Steven to go with them to meet one of them. I mean they had Steven all figured out and he told them all about his story so.... off they go to China.

Listen ya'll, this book is so out there. I don't even know how author's come up with this stuff. Well, okay so he researched a lot and so forth, but you know what I mean.

This book takes us through a story filled with evil monks, not so evil monks, people hibernating for years on end, monks old enough to have met Jesus, a planet called (Aldebaran that is a star sixty-five light years away), the Dalai Lama, and things that I can't even begin to explain.

The book was just bizarre enough for me to like because I love things that are bizarre. There were some sad things that happened in the book and some happy things, besides all of the weird stuff =) I liked some of the characters and I thought the ending was really good. One part of it was predictable but who cares. I also liked the author's writing style and I didn't get confused. I thought this was going to be one of those confusing books as I'm easily confused. I like repeating words. CONFUSED!

It's funny because I didn't think I would like this book at all for reasons, but when I got to that part it wasn't all that big of a deal and it moved right along so it's all good.

All in all I enjoyed it and it was a nice, weird ending to my 2016 reading schedule!



Winter Halo by Keri Arthur

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Souls of Fire novels comes the second in the futuristic fantasy series that will make you want to keep the lights on...

When the bombs that stopped the species war tore holes in the veil between worlds, they allowed entry to the Others. Now, a hundred years later, humans and shifters alike live in artificially lit cities designed to keep the darkness at bay....

The humanoid supersoldiers known as the déchet were almost eradicated by the war. Ever since, Tiger has tried to live her life in peace in hiding. But in the wake of her discovery that Central City’s children are being kidnapped and experimented on, Tiger’s conscience won’t let her look the other way.

The key to saving them lies within the walls of a pharmaceutical company called Winter Halo. But as she learns more about the facility, Tiger’s mission is derailed by a complication: Winter Halo’s female security guards are being systematically attacked by an unknown force.

Now Tiger must summon all her gifts to stop those responsible for both atrocities—no matter the cost to herself... @goodreads



Damn it. I didn't like this one as much as the first book. I keep telling myself it was just my mood but at times I felt like I was slogging through the book.

I still loved the characters and the ghosts, so what happened? I don't know........sigh...........

The book started off with Tiger going into some crazy rift thing following a person to see who they were and then getting attacked by wraiths. Sounds awesome right? Well, I don't know. She's trying to find out who is hurting children and that is awesome. We find out a pretty good bit about that in this book. I'm hoping there will be a wrap up in the next book. Is this a trilogy or a regular series?

Anyway, Tiger and Jonas are helping each other again even though he doesn't like dechet's and that's what Tiger is, (you can read all about that in the first book or just read the blurb to this one) but they are good working together. And some stuff I wanted to happen did happen a little bit in this book. I hope it happens a lot in the next book!

Cat and Bear, the main ghosts, are in the book of course and I just love them so much. I love all of the ghosts they have in the book. But, cat and bear are the best! I mean the ghost thing is the whole reason I loved the first book and liked this one.

Tiger is working undercover at Winter Halo a bad place that they all assume are behind many evil things. Ha, that told you a lot right?

Either way, I will read the next book to see if this has a happy end game which I hope. This cover is also amazing because I love anything wintery looking. =)

City Of Wonders by James A Moore

The third book in the fan-favorite Seven Forges series for all readers of epic fantasy.

Open war rages between the kingdom of Fellein and the Sa’ba Taalor. Refugees seek safety and the leaders on both sides pursue their agendas while ancient forces take notice of the conflict and stir from their slumb@goodreads



Let me just say that all of the book covers in this series are awesome! I have loved every one of them and the last one is even more awesome, but I will get to that later!


He looked at her and winked. "In that tower is a 'queen.'" He frowned for a moment. Not because he was sad, but merely confused by the cultural differences. "For some reason they call their kings by that name when they have breasts. In any event, I must go meet this queen and kill her."

"And that makes you smile?"

Tusk nodded. "Yes, but I smile for a different reason. This queen, she is the protector of the Mother-Vine. That is the god of these people. It is all around us." He gestured and she looked, nodding.

"Yes." She paused a moment. "And?"

"If she must protect her god, either she is a very powerful warrior, or her god is very weak."

Stastha looked at him for a moment and then threw her head back, laughing so hard she could hardly breath.

The Sa'ba Taalor are killing everything in their path. That being said, I still like the Sa'ba Taalor. I guess you just have to read the book to understand.

I'm getting a better understanding of their gods. They do nothing unless their gods ask them to and if I'm not mistaken there are seven different gods.

Andover is still on a mission to meet and get accepted by all of the gods. Delil is on her own mission but she is with Andover along the way. I have a feeling something really EPIC is going to happen with Andover!

Drask is still doing whatever it is his god has asked him to do and I'm excited to find out what that could be AND he better not be killed. Drask seems to be very level headed though, just something about him.

There are some deaths and it was sad but that is the way of it. Right?

The ending gave me a few chills. The Silent Army has risen and what are they going to do? What is everyone going to do? I guess I will find out in the last book!

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

To love is to destroy...

The Mortal War is over, and Clary Fray is home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She's training to become a Shadowhunter and - most importantly of all - she can finally call Jace her boyfriend. But her happiness has come at a price... @goodreads



I love the green UK edition of this book. I just love all the UK editions of these books!

I have enjoyed this book more than the first three. I like how we get to see more into Simon's vampire world and what he is now. He's like totally bad to the bone, but not in a dude way because he's still Simon the nerd we love. But, in a can't touch this kinda way. If you have read the book or read the book you will know what I mean.

I loved the new character, Kyle/Jordon. He's cool and I like him a lot. I hope he's in the next few books. He has a past with one of the characters in the books.

Clary and Jace are trying to make a go of it but there seems to be something wrong with Jace. I wonder what it could be.

There are a lot of sweet things, cool things and evil things going on in the book.

There's also Lilith. That's a fun walk in the park!

That ending . . . more fun times will ensue!

The Blasted Lands by James A. Moore

The sequel to SEVEN FORGES

The Empire of Fellein is in mourning. The Emperor is dead, and the armies of the empire have grown soft. Merros Dulver, their newly-appointed – and somewhat reluctant – commander, has been tasked with preparing them to fight the most savage enemy the world has yet seen.

Meanwhile, a perpetual storm ravages the Blasted Lands, and a new threat is about to arise – the Broken are coming, and with them only Death.@goodreads 



That ending was pretty freaking awesome!

For the record; there wasn't enough of Drask in the book and I have already said I am in love with him from the first book.

I was thrilled to read about Andover Iron Hands and how much his life changed when he went back to be with the Sa'ba Taalor. He had to go through some trials in order to meet with one of their gods. I just think the whole thing with Andover was freaking awesome, these were my favorite parts of the book!

Swech wasn't in the book too much either but she has some stuff she's got going on and a little secret, maybe more. They will come out in later books.

I still love Merros and although he was in the book a great bit not a whole lot was going on with him. He is the leader of the army and at Empress Nachia's side. I think the Emperor was right in picking her for the Empress after his death because she's pretty bad-@ssed!

I feel like this book was leading up to some serious battles in the next two books. There are a lot of things going on with different groups and I'm not sure how it's all going to turn out, I just really hope all of the people I love won't die.

I still don't trust the wizard, Desh. I'm not sure why but I feel like something is going to come out about him later on. I may be wrong and he's a great person. We shall see.

Oh, oh and we get to find out why the Sa'ba Taalor wear the mask thingies over their faces and it's wicked cray! I mean wicked cray!

Overall I enjoyed the book. I did have some moments where it dragged for me when it was just meh stuff with the humans and what not. I mean we got these cool people things and their gods and I want to know all of their stuff. lol

Looking forward to the next book!

Where The Dead Go To Die by Aaron Dries & Mark Allan Gunnells

There are monsters in this world. And they used to be us. Now it's time to euthanize to survive in a hospice where Emily, a woman haunted by her past, only wants to do her job and be the best mother possible.

Euthanize to survive

Post-infection Chicago. Christmas.

Inside The Hospice, Emily and her fellow nurses do their rounds. Here, men and women live out their final days in comfort, segregated from society, and are then humanely terminated before fate turns them into marrow-craving monsters known as ‘Smilers.’ Outside these imposing walls, rabid protesters swarm with signs, caught up in the heat of their hatred.

Emily, a woman haunted by her past, only wants to do her job and be the best mother possible. But in a world where mortality means nothing, where guns are drawn in fear and nobody seems safe anymore – at what cost will this pursuit come? And through it all, the soon to be dead remain silent, ever smiling. Such is their curse.

This emotional, political novel comes from two of horror’s freshest voices, and puts a new spin on an eternal topic: the undead. In the spirit of George A Romero meets Jack Ketchum, Where the Dead Go to Die it is an unforgettable epilogue to the zombie genre, one that will leave you shaken and questioning right from wrong…even when it’s the only right left.

It won't be long before that snow-speckled ground will be salted by blood. @goodreads




FYI: This book is on kindle unlimited right now if anyone is interested.

This is one of the coolest zombie novels I have ever read. It's not a long book at all, I would consider it a novella of sorts.

Sooooo, those that have the zombie virus are put into hospice care in hospital wards. Those that are lucky and have family members etc. that want to do that sort of thing. There are still the few out there that have to get gunned down or try to eat you and stuff. They are called zombies, smilers, or bone-eaters. These zombies like bones, the spine being the most tasty I guess.

Anyhoo, so you have Emily that took a job at one of the facilities as a nurse. She has a little girl named Lucette and a past they ran away from.

Lucette is 12 and goes to school while Emily is at work and she gets off in time to pick her up from school so it all works out. Until the stupid day Lucette does something stupid at school and gets suspended until after the holidays. AND Emily takes her to work with her and tells her to stay in the break room. <--Okay, this is the part to me, where stupid kicks in, you don't take your kids where there are people that will turn into zombies if they are not put down in time. (Now lets back track)

Oh and here is a little picture what was in the kindle version of a smiler and his family member.


So, there are only a few people working at the hospice because . . . . well, do I have to state the obvious?

There is a dude who is a jerk that works there, Mama Metcalf who is in her 70's and is a volunteer (I love her by the way) and the boss lady who's name I just forgot, right this minute, I just forgot it!!!!
There are some other randoms that were not really mentioned too much.

Outside the place you have the protesters that are there every day basically going on about killing the zombies.

Then you have The Crowners - they come in and do the crowning. They are the killers, they take them out when they are at that point of turning.

There is a boy named Robby that is only 12 years old that was dropped off by his parents. They wanted nothing to do with him. And Robby wasn't bitten, he got infected in a horrific way that I will not say in my review. Everyone there tries to make it better for Robby. Emily even lets Lucette visit him - um, NO! <--STUPID ON AISLE FIVE!

So there is a whole story line in the present and past with Emily and there are a few fun times to be had at Christmas and New Year with Emily, Lucette and Mama Metcalf. Then the cray sets in as always.

The Crowners have arrived to take care of another patient. Some nut job from the protestors gets in and kills one of the workers inside. In all of the time wasted with cray cray, the patient (sorry they are called guests) turns and starts eating people. Yeah, but one ole Crowner takes that zombie out with a bullet to the head.

The book has plenty of blood and guts and ewww parts and a hand job which is also ewww because of reasons so it's a little graphic for the youngsters.

I loved the book and that ending! Uggg, I wanted to smack so many people I didn't know where to start first! But all kidding aside I thought the book was an awesome take in the zombie world. 



Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling ~ Illustrated by Jim Kay

Award-winning artist Jim Kay illustrates year two of Harry's adventures at Hogwarts, in the same beautiful, gift-ready format as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike

And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone -- or something -- starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects . . . Harry Potter himself?



Okay, I'm going to do a little *spoilery* in this review so those of you that haven't read the book then you might just want to look at the pictures. I have picked a ton of pictures from the book but believe me, there are plenty more beautiful ones in the book. Plus, if your a Harry Potter fan you will be getting the book anyway if you haven't already!

So poor Harry is stuck back with the Dursley's on Privet Drive. And even though Harry is a relative, they still treat him like poo because he's magical. Ewwwwww.

Harry is depressed because he has be cut off from talking to his friends or getting any kind of correspondence. Even poor Hedwig has been locked in her cage and hasn't been able to fly around. CRUEL! But Harry can't use magic inside the muggle world.

Then Harry meets Doby - the little house-elf that is waiting for him in his room.


It turns out that Doby has been intercepting his correspondence because he fears for Harry's life and doesn't want him to return to Hogwarts. So Doby causes some problems at the house that get Harry in trouble. I had to add this cute little picture of Doby running off, look at his little butt. lol ↓


Then one night, Ron, George and Fred pull up outside Harry's window in their dads flying car to save Harry. It's pretty funny how they get it all going but that is okay as long as Harry gets away from his evil relatives.


Of course, Mrs. Weasley is not pleased when they get back home. The sneaking out part didn't work very well, but she welcomed Harry with open arms and he stayed with them until it was time for them all to go back to school.


I love that picture of the Weasley house =)

Life at The Burrow was as different as possible from life in Privet Drive. The Dursleys liked everything neat and ordered; the Weasleys' house burst with the strange and unexpected. Harry got a shock the first time he looked in the mirror over the kitchen mantlepiece and it shouted, 'Tuck your shirt in, scruffy!' The ghoul in the attic howled and dropped pipes whenever he felt things were getting too quiet, and small explosions from Fred and George's bedroom were considered perfectly normal. What Harry found most unusual about life at Ron's, however, wasn't the talking mirror or the clanking ghoul: it was the fact that everybody there seemed to like him

Poor sweet Harry and I would love to live with the Weasleys' for a bit =)

Look at cute, fat little Scabbers ↓


The kids are going to meet Hermione to get some shopping done. But ole Harry takes a wrong turn down the chimney hole and ends up in some creepy shop. He hides and gets to hear some things Malfoy and his father are talking about.


Finally Harry makes it out of the store and Hagrid finds him and gets him to the right place with his friends.


Then Ron and Harry are blocked from getting on the train soooooo back to stealing the flying car.


AND of course they get into trouble when they get to Hogwarts but it wasn't anything too bad.

Snape looked as though Christmas had been cancelled. He cleared his throat and said. 'Professor Dumbledore, these boys have flouted the Decree for the Restriction of Underage Wizardry, caused serious damage to an old and valuable tree . . . surely acts of this nature . . .
'It will be for Professor McGonagall to decide on these boys' punishments, Severus,' said Dumbledore calmly. 'They are in her house and are therefore her responsibility.' He turned to Professor McGonagall. 'I must go back to the feast, Minerva, I've got to give out a few notices. Come, Severus, there's a delicious-looking custard tart I want to sample.'

There is a new Defence Against the Dark Arts professor named Gideroy Lockhart. He's a bit off but still . . .


Anyway things are not right at Hogwarts. (are they ever?) And Harry and the gang must figure out what's going on.

Poor ole Hagrid gets sent off to Azkaban for something he didn't do!


Malfoy is a jerk, as if we didn't know that. lol


Harry and Ron go out in the woods to meet Aragog the spider that is friends of Hagrid to find out some truth behind some stuff.


Comes to find out there is this diary of a person named Tom Riddle. I'm not telling you who this person really is but they are the one causing all kinds of trouble for a lot of people.

In the end Harry has to end up fighting a Basilisk to set things right. He has the help of the sorting hat for reasons, Dumbledore's Phoenix and a sword. Oh happy day!




There is loads more to the book then the things I have described but you can just read it and if you haven't, why haven't you? Harry Potter rocks and always will.

There is another happy ending for sweet Doby! ♥


Harry gives Dobby his stinky sock so this releases Doby. He now has his freedom from the evil Lucius Malfoy! Woot!

'Come, Dobby, I said, Come!'
But Dobby didn't move. He was holding up Harry's disgusting, slimy sock, and looking at it as though it were a priceless treasure.
'Master has given Dobby a sock,' said the elf in wonderment. 'Master gave it to Dobby.'
'What's that?' spat Mr. Malfoy. 'What did you say?'
'Dobby has got a sock,' said Dobby in disbelief. 'Master threw it, and Dobby caught it, and Dobby-Dobby is free.'
Lucius Malfoy stood frozen, staring at the elf. Then he lunged for Harry.
'You've lost me my servant, boy!'
But Dobby shouted, 'You shall not harm Harry Potter!'
There was a loud bang, and Mr. Malfoy was thrown backwards. He crashed down the stairs, three at a time, landing in a crumbled heap on the landing below. He got up, his face livid, and pulled out his wand, but Dobby raised a long threatening finger.
'You shall go now,' he said fiercely, pointing down at Mr. Malfoy. 'You shall not touch Harry Potter. You shall go now.'
Lucius Malfoy had no choice. With a last, incensed stare at the pair of them, he swung his cloak around him ad hurried out of sight.

This book is wonderful, it always has been and always will, and the graphics in this book make it even better. ♥

Spider-Woman: Baby Talk

Jessica Drew is a private investigator, a super hero and...a mom-to-be? Since we last saw her, Spider-Woman's got a whole new responsibility -now she's adventuring for two! Ben Urich and Porcupine are still along for the ride -in fact, half the time they won't even let Jess leave the car! How's a gal supposed to save the day when her friends are being all overprotective? Then, Spider-Woman will be in over her head when she gets trapped in an alien hospital. Jess is no stranger to unusual circumstances, but getting held captive by Skrulls in the center of a black hole with a bunch of extraterrestrial moms-to-be might take the cake! Expectations won't be disappointed in the mother of all Spider-stories!

Collecting: Spider-Woman 1-5



I freaking loved this graphic novel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


First off, I thought the graphics in this book were amazing! And now I need the next one!


Soooo, Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) is preggers! And it's so awesome, so freaking awesome! Okay, I need to quit saying that but I had so much fun with this book. I laughed and I loved the bad arse pregnant super hero. Now, on with the show!

Carol (Captain Marvel) has been trying get get Jess to go to the Intergalactic Hospital on her dollar so Jess can get checked out nice and proper. Well of course on the day Jess decides to go for a visit, the hospital gets attacked by Skrulls. They are there to get someone. And Jess wants to take them out but she's trying to hold off because of the whole pregnant thing.


Well that didn't work out. She just pretends she's going into labor and then kicks butt! Wahoo!


Jess is on the phone on and off with Carol but Carol can't get in because the Skrulls have blocked the passage so to speak and there are more coming. Yay! Not

So basically Jess gets the kid prince those Skrulls are after, ends up having to have a c-section, has baby, gets fixed up quick, kicks those evil butts and then wakes up a little later in the hospital bed all rested with a bouncing baby boy =) The end! Lol, there is a lot more to it than that but that's the basic what's it.



I think I already mentioned how awesome this book was and that I want more! Spider-Woman is bad to the bone!

Also, I need to see if they have a Funko Pop of her to go with my MASSIVE collection of F Pops of all kinds of people and things. :-D 



Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham

In this collection of personal essays, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood reveals stories about life, love, and working as a woman in Hollywood—along with behind-the-scenes dispatches from the set of the new Gilmore Girls, where she plays the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore once again.

In Talking as Fast as I Can, Lauren Graham hits pause for a moment and looks back on her life, sharing laugh-out-loud stories about growing up, starting out as an actress, and, years later, sitting in her trailer on the Parenthood set and asking herself, “Did you, um, make it?” She opens up about the challenges of being single in Hollywood (“Strangers were worried about me; that’s how long I was single!”), the time she was asked to audition her butt for a role, and her experience being a judge on Project Runway (“It’s like I had a fashion-induced blackout”).

In “What It Was Like, Part One,” Graham sits down for an epic Gilmore Girls marathon and reflects on being cast as the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore. The essay “What It Was Like, Part Two” reveals how it felt to pick up the role again nine years later, and what doing so has meant to her.

Some more things you will learn about Lauren: She once tried to go vegan just to bond with Ellen DeGeneres, she’s aware that meeting guys at awards shows has its pitfalls (“If you’re meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you’ve already set the bar too high”), and she’s a card-carrying REI shopper (“My bungee cords now earn points!”).

Including photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, this book is like a cozy night in, catching up with your best friend, laughing and swapping stories, and—of course—talking as fast as you can. @goodreads 



I love Lauren Graham!


I loved her in Gilmore Girls most of all! Duh. And I also loved her in Parenthood. But Gilmore Girls takes the cake, the old and the new! Woot!

I loved hearing stories about when Lauren was a child like living on the houseboat. I would loved to have seen that in real life! She has a lot of different stories that go back and forth from now and then. It was a little confusing at times but I guess that's why it's called a book of essays!

She even writes like Lorelai Gilmore sounds. <--- If that makes sense, does to me, but I'm weird and I don't care.

Some of the most exciting things that happened in my life took place before I turned six years old. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, which his awesome right there, but three weeks later, before I even had time to work on my tan, we moved to Japan. JAPAN. The home of my most favorite food ever: mashed peas. Well, that was probably my favorite food back then; what a waste, since I could have been eating spicy tuna rolls with extra wasabi. Damn you, Baby Lauren, and your infantile palate! Well, to be fair, you were an infant. Sorry I yelled.

For the most part I enjoyed the book. Some parts lagged a little hence my 4 star rating. I also love the book cover!

Happy Reading ♥
