The Good, the Bad and the Ugly #3

This is a Meme to show case 3 books on your shelf that you are going to read and talk about this week. Do it any day of the week that you like :-)

The Good: it could be a book that you just started reading and it is sooo damn good! Or, a book you've been waiting for and finally got.

The Bad: it could be a book that you are going to read because of its hype, it was recommended to you or any other reason BUT you are not sure you are going to like it because it's not your usual type of book/story/genre/thing.

The Ugly: it could be any book and for any reason. It's up to you!

So, spread the word, invite friends and enter your post in the linky tool at the bottom!!

The Rules:
1) Link back to my blog and Meme!
2) Make sure to follow anyone you invite and anyone who refers back to you
3) It would be VERY nice if you disable patcha; it is a pain to leave messages!

The Good: Quarantine by Lex Thomas.- I already started it and it is so damn good!

Blurb: It was just another ordinary day at McKinley High—until a massive explosion devastated the school. When loner David Thorpe tried to help his English teacher to safety, the teacher convulsed and died right in front of him. And that was just the beginning.

A year later, McKinley has descended into chaos. All the students are infected with a virus that makes them deadly to adults. The school is under military quarantine. The teachers are gone... [+] continue

The Bad: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King.- Well... It's not my type of book but I read its review at Stackedbooks and liked it.

Blurb: Astrid Jones desperately wants to confide in someone, but her mother's pushiness and her father's lack of interest tell her they're the last people she can trust. Instead, Astrid spends hours lying on the backyard picnic table watching airplanes fly overhead. She doesn't know the passengers inside, but they're the only people... [+] continue

The Ugly: The Reckoning (The Taker Trilogy #2) by Alma Katsu.- Adair is back, and Jonathan too... Should I say more? If you read the first book you know things are about to get ugly.

Blurb: She had no choice but to entomb Adair, her nemesis, to save Jonathan, the boy she grew up with in a remote Maine town in the early 1800s and the man she thought she would be with forever. But Adair had other plans for her. He used his mysterious, otherworldly powers to give her eternal life, but Lanore learned too late that there was a price for this gift: to spend eternity with him. And though he is handsome and charming, behind Adair’s seductive faÇade is the stuff of nightmares. He is a monster in the flesh, and he wants Lanore to love... [+] continue

What are you reading this week?


  1. Quarantine sounds awesome! I need to add that to my TBR list. :)

  2. Wow, quarantine sounds like a practical horror movie, so it should be interesting since I always love zombie-ish/'virus-infecting-all' stories! The cover of The Reckoning looks beautiful and already enticing enough to read it! Never heard of the trilogy so might put that on my to-read list ;)

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hmm, Quarantine sounds very intriguing. :) And I've been very interested in The Taker trilogy but haven't picked it up yet (I like the covers ;). I haven't gotten my G, B, U up yet, but I will get there...eventually! :)
