A Time for Mercy (Jake Brigance #3) by John Grisham

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I’m a sucker for a John Grisham novel, and this one delivers everything you expect from one of his books. Once again we visit Jake Brigance, who has been assigned to represent Drew Gamble, a 16 year old boy accused of killing a Sheriff’s deputy. The trial tears the town apart, and Jake and his family are thrust smack in the middle of the controversy.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

3. 5 stars

This is a cute, light and fluffy first book in a new YA SciFi series.

He’s an android/human hybrid, with a computer processor for a brain, as well as a host of weaponry he can use to eliminate threats.

Infernal (The Chronicles of Stratus #1) by Mark De Jager

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I have mixed feelings about this book. At times I liked it, and at others I was annoyed at it. It’s a dark fantasy told in the first person about a man that wakes up with no memory and unable to move. From there, he takes us a on a violent road trip to an unknown destination to find answers to burning questions like, “what (not who) am I”, “why am I so angry” and “why do I have a thirst for revenge”?

This is a fantastic first book in an exciting YA Fantasy/SciFi series. There is a strong, flawed female lead, complicated relationships, creepy monsters and plenty of action. It’s a quick read and I couldn’t put it down.

Take It Back by Kia Abdullah – Blog Tour

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a tense and twisty mystery/thriller that involves sexual assault, immigrants, religion, disparities in wealth, the ever-present blood-thirsty media, drug dependency, physical disabilities, and the inequity of the justice system. It sounds like a lot, and it is, but the author does a fantastic job of weaving it together into a well-written, cogent story that you won’t want to put down.
