It got in us
After receiving an urgent SOS from a work detail on a distant planet, a skeleton crew is dispatched to perform a standard search-and-rescue mission.
Most are dead.
But when the crew arrives, they find an abandoned site, littered with rotten food, discarded weapons…and dead bodies.
Don't set foot here again.
As they try to piece together who—or what—could have decimated an entire operation, they discover that some things are best left buried—and some monsters are only too ready to awaken.
I read most of this book during a 24 hour read-a-thon. Which is still going as I type this... a need break- but not because of this book... heck no. This book is so good, and thank you for the not so much romance and alot of action. Yes... I think the only down side is the wait for book 2. The main characters were a bunch of goobers and not perfect which made me enjoy them more. The story interesting to keep this girl with ADD to keep reading it for hours on end. So good! Now for Book 2 for this run!

High school is hard for all students, but it's even more difficult for somebody who is dealing with personal challenges that most teens don't. That is the case for freshman Alexa, who is undergoing cancer treatment while trying to adjust to high school. She maintains her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life despite her health issues, thanks in part to loyal best friend Katie remaining by her side through it all. Whether they're at school, home or the hospital, the girls are always by each other's side through thick and thin. Also part of Alexa's life is determined and protective mother Lori.
My Review: It was nice to watch a show that had a sort-of positive feel with if its subject was cancer. I like the support Alexa has thru the first 4 eppys and I will so be watching the rest of this series that is bought to us by Netflix. Also love the opening song and I so want it! Yup like this show! And I'll update this when I finish the season!

Before Gray Weathersby uncovered the truth about Claysoot and the Laicos Project, a girl named Bree came of age in the coastal settlement of Saltwater—and made her own surprising journey to the world beyond its borders. In Stolen, discover the story of Bree’s life before she was Snatched from her home, before she joined the rebellion, and before she met a boy named Gray…
This is a short story of events before Taken. The story of Bree and how she was taken by her village because she was the strongest female in her tribe! A tribe unlike Gray's a place by the sea... lots of sea. The story was pretty good even if it was short and it was good to read about Bree... and what she went thru. I'll give 3 stars since its just a small part to the story tho :)

Name: My Plain Jane
Author: by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, Brodi Ashton
You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre embarks on a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (!) and his uneven temper (!!), they fall in love—and, Reader, she marries him. (!!!)
Or does she?
Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, a certain gentleman is hiding more than skeletons in his closets, and one orphan Jane Eyre, aspiring author Charlotte Brontë, and supernatural investigator Alexander Blackwood are about to be drawn together on the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights.
My Review: I wasn't going to read this to be fair because I freak out about ghost stories but it pulled me in these 3 authors are the best and I should really read more of their books. Well I loved the whole wuthering heights retelling and sorts and Jane is just wonderful. Charlotte is so brilliant and so headstrong! Loved this story and can't wait to read the next one!
