Gary Heyward was a correctional officer at Rykers Island. When times got tough and he had financial hardships, he turned to bringing contraband into the jail and sell it to the inmates. He created a whole organization within the jail. He talks about the academy, working in the jail, statting his organization and how he got caught. Being a law enforcement officer and working in the correctional setting, I found this read interesting. Great read.

This book was AMAZING! It was funny, quirky, and an all around great read. There were so many relatable things. It made me realize it's okay to be who I am.

I wanted to read another Ellen Hopkins book because I absolutely fell in love with her writing style when I read her Crank series. I fell in love with her writing all over again. The plot is a little dark, but i absolutely loved this book. And i wasn't even expecting the twist that happened towards the end of the book!

I've been in a reading slump lately but this got me out of it. It was a light, easy, fun read. Cute and typical love story.

I'm not one that's into romances, but this one completely grabbed my attention. I read this in about one day. It was cute and had me laughing the whole time. I was completely drawn into the characters life and I felt like I was their friend.

3.5 ⭐ the only reason why it's not 4 is because of the ending. I didn't really care for the ending. The premise of the story was great! It kept me intrigued the whole time. Overall really good book.

From a Buick 8 | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

I went into reading this a little skeptical. A "possessed" car? I didn't know how stephen king was going to pull this one off, but he sure did. From the very first page I was hooked. The format was a little different: a story within a story. But I found myself unable to put the book down, wanting to know more about the story being told, how it was going to end. It's not one of his best stories, but its one that will keep your interest.

Two sisters. One is a serial killer, and one cleans up her messes. But what happens when the serial killer steals the heart of the man that her sister loves? This was a fast and fun read. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The ending even hinted at a sequel. This is the first book in a while that I had a hard time putting down. This is definitely a book I would read again and again.

All I can say is wow. I definitely was not expecting everything that happened to happen. I love some parts and was sad about other parts. I'm the type of person that gets picky and is a critic about endings but I was satisfied with it. A perfect ending to an amazing series

I loved most of it but disliked some of it. I must admit, I chose to read this for the memoir part, not the on writing part (which is only about 100 pages). When I first started the on writing section I really disliked it, but I after a few chapters I started to really enjoy it. It was I teresting to read what his writing process is and what he recommends for beginning writers. In the end I loved this book and and it made me want to write more.

The Body | Stephen King, Robin Waterfield
post image
Pickpick

Due to my work schedule, it took me longer to read this than I care to admit.

This short story is the inspiration behind the movie stand by me. 4 friends take a trip by foot to see if a dead body is really there. Along the way they encounter many different obstacles.

I personally have never seen the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. It's different than Stephen Kings typical story. It shows how friendships can grow stronger and break apart.

I was really hesitant in starting this book. I watched the first season of this TV show and I fell in love and told myself I have to read the books. I read the first book and was completely disappointed. Debating on if I should read the second book, I took a chance. I was so glad that I took a chance. This book was 100 times better than the first. This book had more action in it which kept me wanting to read it.

Oh my, I don't even know where to begin with this one! I didn't expect it to end the way it did and I didn't expect to love this book as much as I did. It had me on the edge of my feet the entire time! Being a huge Stephen King fan, I went into thinking it wasn't going to be that great because of how great The Shining was. But boy was I wrong! This book is easily in my top 5 favorite books.

Wow. This is the first time in a long time where I read a book start to finish in a weekend. I knew the story behind it before reading it die to me watching the show on Netflix. This book still grabbed my attention from the very first word. This was definitely a page Turner, and I had a hard time putting the book down. I really hope Jay Asher writes a sequel to this to see how everything unfolds.

I didn't think I was going to love this book as much as I did. Some aspects of this book were so relatable. I easily fell in love with the characters and the writing style. I could feel the hurt when something bad happened, and I could feel the joy when something good happened. It was a beautifully written book.

I was a little disappointed with this book. From what I was told this book is funny and enjoyable. I did not think it was all that funny. I only really laughed at one part. There was very interesting parts of the book as she talks about her childhood, and of course her time on the office.

Fantastic book! I loved how it incorporated a real life problem in our society. Though it was a short read, I felt it was not too short and not too long for the plot of the book. It was a fun, interesting read.
