Gruesome Science: Generation by William Knight

About the book

A crime-thriller with an injection of horror

Journalist Hendrix “Aitch” Harrison links bodies stolen from a renowned forensic research lab to an influential drug company.

Aided by Dr. Sarah Wallace, a determined and beguiling entomologist, he delves into grisly world of clinical trials and a viral treatment beyond imagining.

But Aitch must battle more than his fear of technology to expose the macabre fate of the drugged victims donated to scientific research.

When I first heard about the book, I was a little hesitant about doing a review. I read the blurb, took one look at the muy creepy cover, and thought, “Oh man, zombies.” The blurb also mentioned words like sci-fi, crime and thriller, and I haven’t read a single crime thriller in a long time, so I wasn’t exactly in the mood for one. However, I decided to suck it up and give it a go as part of my personal reading and writing goals. WELL, I’m glad that I went ahead with it because it turned out to be even more interesting than I thought. Yes, it has sci-fi, crime, horror, and a little bit about the walking dead, and it was all gewd.

Random book: The Golden Acorn by Catherine Cooper

I am a sucker for free Kindle books on Amazon.  Every once in a while I check the top 100 free books list and download the ones that seem interesting to me.  Most of the books I download fall in the young readers and fantasy categories.   I download too many of these books, but I have only read a few of them. Some of the ones I read were so-so, but one or two were actually good.  The Golden Acorn by Catherine Cooper was one of the nice ones.

Surprise book #2 for the Books to Movies Challenge and a jampacked weekend

Presenting my next book for the books to movies challenge… Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. Hells yeah. Okay, I know I made a friggin’ list, but I just gotta read this one next. I’ve heard of Battle Royale lots of times but I’ve never read the book or seen the movie, so when I saw this blood red beauty in the bookstore (I was looking for the books on my original list), I just grabbed it. Also, the fact that it was just less than 400 bucks made it real easy. Yeah, I’m kind of a cheapskate even with books – I always try to look for the cheaper edition. Anyway , this is friggin’ purrrfect for the challenge. I AM SO EXCITED. I did a little jig when I unwrappped it. Seriously.

Books to Movies Challenge

Aha! I haven’t read anything in such a long time that I’ve decided to join a reading challenge! I read about it in a post by Jai and I followed the yellow brick road to the challenge host: Two Bibliomaniacs.

The challenge begins June 1st and ends Dec 31st. All you gotta do is read a book and watch the movie adaptation. You can choose any book. You can also choose to read 2, 4, 6, or 8 books. Sounds easy enough, right? I’m going to try to go for at least 2. Haha. If I can do more, that will be great. I just bought a book a few days ago and it was one that was already made into a movie. Guess I’m off to a good start, eh? :P

If you’re up for a book and movie challenge, go to this awesome place and read more about it.

In other news, it’s TGI-Friday and I’m blog guesting at A Taste of T today!

Enjoy the weekend, everyone! :)
