Orphan Monster Spy (YA)

This is the story of little Sarah, the Jew that wasn't a Jew, who became a orphan,  than a spy, but along the way a monster.  If you like this era of books than you will like this one.  At some points you will shake your head and say no way that happened but then you will remember all the things of that era and then you will tell yourself, maybe it could have.  This book is fill with action  and suspense like you would think it should be but there are also twists and turns that you don't see coming, and you'll be like what???  If you like Elizabeth Wein books you will adore this one as well, it is a historical fiction not to be missed if you like this time period.

The Heart Forger (YA)

A bone witch like Tea can take a life and return it but they can not kill that which is already dead, and the game she is playing for revenge  one whether she knows it or not, because there is always one stronger or more knowledgeable. 
This is a great sequel to the first book The Bone Witch, action packed and even more twists and turns that will through you for more loops, and surprises.  Each subsequent book brings us closer to the true Tea and what brought her to this point in her life, and I can't wait to be able to put all the pieces together at once.

Time Bomb (YA)

Seven Teens stuck in a high school after a bomb goes off must work together to get out before the rest of the hidden bombs go off and entomb them, but one is responsible for the bombs, they don't know this yet, but what will happen when the do?
This breakfast club of teens stuck together and must help each other in order to get out alive.  I found the book very interesting and a fast read but some of the premise behind the bombing I just couldn't find believable.  The kids I am around if it doesn't benefit them directly they wouldn't go out of their way or be bothered by it.  So I find that for a teen to bomb their school for their father a little unrealistic, especially without his knowledge.  But the book is filled with lots of actions and suspense so it is a pretty good read, and if anything it shows diversity and helps with understanding of several groups you might not otherwise have access too, we always #needdiversebooks.

Body Count: Gabriel Vol III (ADULT AUDIO)

Everything was finally right for Gabriel, until those few seconds that changed everything, everything for so many because of one stupid decision.  One that will need to be repaid.
This was a exciting book so much action and of course you are always rooting for Gabriel and his friends, and the suspense, sometimes I think I could have used a knife on it.  This is a wonderful book and if you are lucky enough to have the audio narrated by Mr. Salzman than you are really in for a treat as he seems to transform you right into the story where you can watch it all happen right up front, Mr. Salzman and Mr. Evans make a awesome team and I am glad they have teamed up in this series, it make for a great experience for us the reader/listener.
