Book Review: Death Perception

Last Monday I started the book Death Perception by Victoria Laurie. It is the 5th book in the Psychic Eye series, and I think my favorite out of all 5 (at least so far). By Saturday I had read less than half of the book, I was on page 126 out of 314. On Saturday night, I could not stop, I just had to see how it ended. I ended up finishing the book at 2:30 on Sunday morning (really 1:30 since the clocks went back, yay daylight savings) This book gave me a reaction that I have never gotten from a book before. I was so into the book, and the end was so suspenseful and a bit scary, that I was actually, physically shaking. I wasn't cold though, in fact I was really hot, my dad had the heat on way to high for the beginning of November. The only thing that could have caused my tremors was this amazing book.

So in this book, Abby Cooper, a psychic, goes with her boyfriend Dutch to Las Vegas to search for Dutch's cousin who has been kidnapped along. Abby has this ability where she can look at a picture and tell if someone is dead or alive, so she is able to tell that the cousin is alive, which is a good thing. But while investigating the kidnapping with Dutch, Abby keeps having dreams predicting Dutch's death.

Honestly, the summary doesn't give the book any justice. Any mystery lovers would find this a great read, and I think non-mystery lovers would as well. Reading the ending of this book was intense, almost like I was there with Abby trying to figure out what was going on. If I had to rate this book on a 1-5 scale (5 being the best) I would definitely give it a 5.

Bon Jovi and Carrie Underwood

My sister called about an hour ago, like she does every night (why is she married again?) Anyway, my brother in law has the absolute best job ever because I was just invited to go see Bon Jovi in NYC on Wednesday and Carrie Underwood next Monday on the 15. I have seen Bon Jovi 3 times, but I have never seen Carrie Underwood. I am so excited. Not only that, on the 17th I get to see Wintuk. My friend won tickets by calling into a radio station. I am so grateful to have an awesome brother in law (no matter how annoying he can be) to invite me to concerts and a great friend who would think of inviting me to see Cirque du Soleil. It's like Christmas came early for me today.
