Well...it's been a long time since I posted my last blog...now it is time for the catch up. After having my computer taken away for repair by my local apple store for 3 bloody weeks (I was originally told it would be 5 to 7 days..yeah ok), and going through multitudes of emails, catching up on my guilty pleasure of Frontierville-come on even the Zombiemom has to have some vices-I am ready to blog!
The fourth book in the 100 book challenge was Hold my Closer Necromancer by Lish McBride. I have had this book in the tomb library for some time, borrowed from the Banshee of Busby Dawn. I stood in amongst my library and debated what to read (trust me I have a TON to chose from!), finally deciding on this one...I was not disappointed.
Hold me Closer is the story of Sam, a normal everyday teen, working at a local fast food joint, hanging with friends, and playing potato hockey until he meets Douglas.
Turns out Douglas is a necromancer with a nasty temper. He runs into Sam after a bad round of potato hockey, and demands the Sam tell him why he is in "his" area, and does "the council" know. Sam is confused, and yes, a quite a bit scared, when he discovers he is also a necromancer. Douglas has given Sam one week to decide wether or not he will join forces with Douglas, and he better chose correctly or Sams whole world will fall apart.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable book. It was written smoothly, allowing the reader to get engrossed in Sams plight. I found myself laughing at the funny parts, and feeling for Sam in the intense moments.
Each chapter in the book (and the title) is a reworked line from an 80's song. I couldn't help but sing "Hold me closer tiny dancer" every time I saw the title..Hell I'm still doing it!. It made me smile every time I'd start a new chapter and the song would go through my head (even though some of those songs I would rather forget).
This book was fun to read, and had quite a few plot twists that keep you guessing. I would seriously recommend picking it up
One down...two more to go. See you all in a little bit with the next blog. I hate catching up...
