Books from the Backlog [1]: Jasper Dent Series


I have a basement full of books collecting dust. Since I’ve been meaning to do a clean up of sorts, I decided to participate in Books from the Backlog feature hosted by Carole’s Random Life. Maybe this will be a way for me to remember at one point in time, I bought these books because I thought they were interesting.

My first post is the Jasper Dent series by Barry Lyga. I read and reviewed I Hunt Killers back in 2012.

Must-read, well written, genuine. I don’t seek out suspense/thriller in the YA genre and it’s primarily because it’s really not my cup of tea. I Hunt Killers was not a surprise hit on my shelves and it’s because I’ve wanted it so badly I could almost taste it. Readers should have caution that this book, though sometimes a bit humorous, may still be too gory for your taste. I, however, revelled in it. I can’t wait to read the next one.

I thought for sure I’d enjoy the next two books, but alas, I never got to find out. These two books are still fermenting on my shelves but trust, they are not forgotten.
