Saturday 9 (#2)

I got an email asking why a book blog is doing memes that have nothing to do with books. That’s a fair question…and the answer is because I think they’re fun, it’s something different, and I had readers ask for more of it. So there you go, but if it’s not your thing I understand completely 🙂

Here’s this weeks questions…

Saturday 9: Just Like a Pill

1. What was the last pill your doctor prescribed?  Why?

It dawned on me last week that we have reached the HALFWAY mark of this year. OMG, where has the time gone?!?!

Review: The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan

 A Boeing 777 arrives at JFK and is on its way across the tarmac, when it suddenly stops dead. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet. Crews on the ground are lost for answers, but an alert goes out to the CDC. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of their Canary project, a rapid-response team that investigates biological threats, gets the call and boards the plane. What he finds makes his blood run cold.

In a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, a former professor and survivor of the Holocaust named Abraham Setrakian knows something is happening. And he knows the time has come, that a war is brewing…

So begins a battle of mammoth proportions as the vampire virus that has infected New York begins to spill out into the streets. Eph, who is joined by Setrakian and a motley crew of fighters, must now find a way to stop the contagion and save his city–a city that includes his wife and son–before it is too late.


If you love vampires, a good thriller, and a book that will scare you so bad you want to put it in the freezer just like Joey from ‘Friends’, then you will be sure to enjoy this book. I will admit, the light has stayed on in my room a little longer than usual after I put this sucker down to go to sleep. Find out why, after the jump…
