Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

Hunger: A Gone Novel by Michael Grant

Hunger: A Gone Novel
by Michael Grant
Edition: Hardcover
Rating * * * *
Date Reviewed 5/31/2009

"In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE.

Except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not one single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what's happened.

Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents - unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers - that grow stronger by the day.

It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: On your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else..."

Got my copy of "Hunger" on Friday and couldn't start it right away because I was in the middle of another book. Stayed up and finished the started book so I could start it Saturday morning. It was every bit as exciting as "Gone". I read until my hands were numb from holding the book and then read some more. It keeps you right on the edge of your seat and you can not lay it down. You just have to see what happens next. More and more normals are developing powers as the food is quickly disappearing. Nobody wants to work in the fields to get the vegetables and fruits that are rotting away. And if that's not bad enough once they do get a few kids out there, there are worms that eat right through their shoes into their bodies. Ugh!! And this was a calm day. Wait until Caine decides to take over the power plant. Like I said, it's nonstop action that will not allow you to put this book down. Don't know what I'll read until the next
book in this series comes out

1. Gone (2008)
2. Hunger (2009)
3. Lies (2010)
