It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday… again and I can’t wait for my short work week to be over. Two hours into my Library shift and it’s been exhausting. The good thing is that I’ll get to read more due to the four day weekend!!

This week I have some weird book picks and they are all different genres.

What are you going to read this week?

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding- Alexandra Bracken

33785202    I would say it’s a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness.

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper’s great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn’t exactly the forgiving type.

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor’s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there’s a lot Alastor isn’t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host.

Halloween: The Offical Movie Novelization- John Passarella

41473498    The official novelization of the highly anticipated revamp of the classic horror film Halloween.

In 1978, Laurie Strode survived an encounter with Michael Myers, a masked figure who killed her friends and terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night. Myers was later gunned down, apprehended and committed to Smith’s Grove State Hospital.

For forty years, memories of that nightmarish ordeal have haunted Laurie and now Myers is back once again on Halloween, having escaped a routine transfer, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. This time, Laurie is prepared with years of survival training to protect herself, her daughter Karen and her granddaughter Allyson, a teenager separated from her family and enjoying Halloween festivities.

The Kiss Quotient- Helen Hoang

36577586   A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases–a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice–with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan–from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but crave all of the other things he’s making her feel. Their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…

The dreadful tale of prosper Redding by Alexandra bracken

Going into this book I was excited since its Alexandra Dang bracken even though I disliked with a extreme passenger which only read second since was a dualogy but thanks to darkest minds still Alex is a instant read for me. But going in I’m finally getting ready for fall so been reading fall books and this was the start. But this book is about a kid prosper who hasn’t had such a great life what ever he does just frowned upon of extremely disliked in his town that his family started years and years ago. You would think he would be a celebrity but Nooe really disliked.why does his family hate him is because years ago his family made a deal with a fiend or in my mind one of the devils of the underworld and that deal was if they received all this good luck and fortune but come certain year he will come for like your soul or something well the family finds out a way to kill/ trap the fiend. You learn they failed and one bloodline of someone goes away he will be back well he ends up in the mind and body of prosper. And is trying come back alive to take revenge for the family ooooo in ghostly voice. But yea I soooo enjoyed this Alex makes the perfect world right in perfect for fall and it’s middle grade but to show friendship in ways don’t expect I loved. In all else that’s the biggest. Plus the cliff hanger for this book was sooo bad but sooo good I’m dieing for book 2 and this book has became a book I’ll read for many years. 5/5 stars. ~~~JUSTIN
