Digital Fortress

Over the weekend I finished reading Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. It is a standalone book. It isn’t part of the Robert Landon book series. Although I did find out he does have a new Robert Landon book coming out in October.

Warning: there is a surprise twist that I didn’t expect.

Digital Fortress is about a woman named Susan Fletcher. She works at the NSA as a cryptographer. She’s engaged to a professor. She is called into work on a Saturday because her boss found a code that an expensive code breaking machine couldn’t break. She and the professor do break the code and save the NSA.

The book reminds of Edward Snowden and what he did. Now I’m reading The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry.

Going Clear (book)

I finished listening to Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright.

At first, I wasn’t going to read another book about Scientology, but it was mentioned by Leah Remini on her show. I am so glad that I did read this book. It was well researched. It was really good. I had wanted to know more about Scientology. I wanted to know what the basic idea of it. I don’t need to read Dianetics now. From what it sounds like is a type of hypnosis or saying something many times until you believe it. After L. Ron Hubbard sold Dianetics, people started copying it and the idea wasn’t making money anymore. So the “religion” was a front to make money.

I do highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about Scientology. Now I’m reading Digital Fortress by Dan Brown.

Incubus Dreams

Saturday I finished reading Incubus Dreams by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the 12th book of the Anita Blake book series. There are 27 books in the book series.

Warning: There is lots of sex in this one.

I didn’t really like this book. I had to make myself read until the end because I wanted to know what with the couple who hit Anita and the case was working on. The case was that strippers were getting killed. It was a master vampire that killed them. At the end of the book,  it was revealed who the master vampire was, but he got away.

Now I’m listening to Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright.

City of Lost Souls

I finished listening to City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare yesterday. It is the fifth book of the Mortal Instruments book series. There are six books in the series. I have the sixth book on hold.

Warning: there is some violence.

In City of Lost Souls, Jace is missing. Clary and the others decide to look for Jace on their own. Jace and Sebastian sneak in the Institute, and Clary sees them. Then Jace sees Clary alone and tries to get her to join them. Clary ends up doing that. She finds out what Sebastian’s plans are. Simon summons an angel to get a sword that will break the bond between Sebastian and Jace. Sebastian’s plans were to get a dark army together. Clary uses the sword on Jace and the dark army dies. Sebastian escapes.

I did like this book. I hope I will like the last book. Now I’m reading Incubus Dreams by Laurell K Hamilton.

You can find this book at Wordery.com, Downpour.com, and Kobo.com.

Before I Fall (book)

A few weeks ago I had seen the trailer of the movie Before I Fall and it looked good. It said it’s based on a book so I decided to get the audiobook from Overdrive. The book is written by Lauren Oliver. The audiobook came available too soon though because I can’t see the movie for a little while.movie Donnie Darko. I would have written the end differently. Now I’m reading City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. It’s the fifth book of the Mortal Instruments book series.

Warning: you will cry and laugh. Warning 2: there is a shocking part and an abrupt ending

Before I begin the summary, I should say I almost didn’t like the book. The girl was a snob and a follower. She didn’t question anything until she died. But later on the book did get good and I did cry a little bit.

Before I Fall is about a teenage girl named Samantha Kingston. She dies in a car wreck with her friends who are drunk. Then she wakes up in her bed and it’s the same day. She calls it Death Groundhog Day. She relives the day until she finds out what cause the crash. The book is also like the movie Donnie Darko.

I would have written the end differently. Now I’m reading City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. It’s the fifth book of the Mortal Instruments book series.

You can get this book at Wordery.com, Downpour.com, and Kobo.com.

Cerulean Sins

I finished reading Cerulean Sins by Laurell K. Hamilton a few days ago. It is the 11th book in the Anita Blake book series. Currently, there are 25 books in the book series.

Warning: there is lots of sex, violence, and gory parts.

Anita Blake is a vampire hunter and a necromancer. In this book, Anita raises a guy who supposedly had accidentally shot himself. The bodyguards weren’t that too impressed by it. It was revealed later that the bodyguards weren’t bodyguards. Then Anita gets called to two gory crime scenes and she gets followed by two guys. In the end, Anita solves the crimes and finds out why the two guys are following her.

I sorta liked this book. Right now I’m listening to Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I hope to finish it by Monday so I can watch the movie.

You can get this book at Kobo.com, Wordery.com, or Walmart.com

 

City of Fallen Angels

I finished listening to/reading City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. It is the fourth book of the Mortal Instruments (Shadowhunters) book series. There are 6 books in the series.

Warning: there are some gross parts, and a cliffhanger ending.

City of Fallen Angels is about Jace having problems sleeping. He is having nightmares about killing Clary. He doesn’t tell Clary until near the end of the book. They find out a demon has a hold on him because he came back to life. Simon has problems too. Someone is hiring people to kill him which does no good because of the mark of Cain. The demon who has a hold on Jace is the who is putting hits on Simon. The demon is Lilith who was Adam’s first wife. In the cliffhanger ending, Jace does something horrible. I did like this book.

Now I’m reading Cerulean Sins by Laurell K Hamilton which is the 11th book of the Anita Blake book series.

You can get City of Fallen Angels at Downpour.com, Wordery.com, Amazon.com,  and Kobo.com.
