Carolina Moon by Nora Roberts

In Carolina Moon, Victoria "Tory" Bodeen has a gift. A gift of sight: she can see the future. Coming home to Progress, South Carolina after years of running from her family and herself, Tory comes back to the haunting murder of her best friend Hope Lavelle. Hope was brutally assaulted and killed when they (Tory and Hope) were 8 years old. Hope has an identical twin, Faith, and an older brother Cade. Will Faith and Tory become friends? Tory comes home to reconnect with her grandmother and aunt and uncle but not her parents. Her father, thinking that her sight is a connection to the devil, unmercifully abuses Tory. Cade becomes involved with Troy with much regret from his mother. A murder happens in the town. With Tory's return, is Hope’s murderer killing again? Can Tory, with her gift, help catch a killer? This book is fast paced. Most of the characters are likeable and fun.

The Paperboy by Pete Dexter

The Paperboy was an okay book. I never really felt a connection to any of the characters in the novel because none of them were very likable. I read the novel because I wanted to watch the movie. However, after reading the novel, I do not feel that I really want to see the movie. I am extremely happy that I checked this one out from the library.

Gone Too Far by Suzanne Brockmann

The follow up of a terrorist attack and the attempt to find out who was guilty, who goofed, etc. It features two love stories and the beginning of another. It also deals with racism. Well done.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is a fast and easy diary style novel. Charlie writes letters to an anonymous friend. His letters are about his life: school and teachers; friends and family; sex, drugs, and rock and roll. I suppose we are supposed to be moved by the things he writes, but I have to say, I never felt much for any of the characters in this story, as they were very flat. It was an entertaining, "read it in one night" book, but don't expect much more than that.

The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman & Jay Bonansinga

Being a huge fan of the graphic comics and even a bigger fan of the show, I was excited to read this book. I was not disappointed during this read. It truly showed the growth of evil one man needs to endure, even if he really has no intentions of being evil. The ending was very unexpected and satisfying. If you are a fan of the show or the comics, I would definitely recommend this read. I just found the Governor in the comics as a disgusting character and it translated through the series. After reading the prequel to his character formation, I actually feel a bit sorry for him. Again, a great read for any fan of the Walking Dead.

Midnight Sun by Elwood Reid

This book is about two men looking for a girl who was kidnapped by a cult who live deep in the woods of Alaska. I found myself asking, "what else could happen?"
