Here is my review for One for the Money by Janet Evanovich. This was my first bookstore specific review and you will note the layout is different than my regular reviews. Please feel free to leave comments about your thoughts about this book.
This book is the first installment in Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. Mixing sarcastic undertones with doses of a realistic, harsh reality make Stephanie relatable to readers, while placing her in unimaginable situations will make readers laugh uncontrollably. Though the writing has a few moments of weakness and at times is predictable, overall readers will enjoy this unique take at crime fighting. Readers will grasp for the next book in the series, just to see what else can happen to Stephanie, as she learns more about becoming a bounty hunter. I recommend this book to fans of the ‘accidentally-thrown-into-an-investigation’ character series books.

By Cynthia Leitich Smith. Format: eBook. Read May 2012.
Cynthia Leitich Smith provides it all in this short story. Vampires, ghosts, a few humans, mystery and romance are all packed nicely in roughly twenty pages. The plot contains many twists and turns, sure to leave a reader’s head spinning. Haunted Love is written for fans of young-adult, supernatural intrigue. I recommend this story for any reader looking for an exciting, fast read.
I will read just about every subject available. I prefer a story that is well told, no matter the subject or length. As for young-adult books, I think the subject needs to be either relatable or popular. There seems to be a growing trend in young-adult books: vampires/supernatural beings. I don’t mind the popular theme, because it means the next generation has found a subject they want to read, and that is important. Are you a fan of science-fiction/fantasy books? Do you prefer paranormal romances, or paranormal mysteries? Or are you like a few people that I know, that want their books strictly human?
