The 12 Books of Christmas - Book #7

I've been counting down my 12 favorite books of 2011, and  today we are ready for #7. To clarify, these are book I READ in 2011; they weren't necessarily published in 2011. I have rated 18 books so far this year with a perfect 5 out of 5 hats. So my top twelve books were a bit difficult to determine. Book # 7 is:
Virals, by Kathy Reichs

Click on the title to read my full review. I love Reichs' Temperance Brennan books, and so when I found out she was writing a book for teens about Temperance's niece, well, I was all over that! And the book didn't disappoint. Now, it's not about a forensic investigation, like Temperance's books, but its about some really intelligent teens outsmarting some really intelligent (and crooked) adults. There's action, and danger, and I ended up loving the book. Yes, it's a bit far-fetched at times, but hey, the entertainment value more than made up for that.  From my review:

The Virals (as they call themselves) must still struggle to prevail, even though they have some extra weapons, so I was able to invest in the outcome and root for the good guys. The twists and turns kept you on your toes. I started to suspect the bad guy, but not until about three-fourths of the way through.

It's a rather long book, but teens who like these types of teen adventures will want to read this. The sequel, Seizure, is already out (and on my TBR!)

Feel free to link up your favorite books in the comments, if you want. Tune in tomorrow for number 6!

  1. Teens at my library are eager for this book. I feel like I should read it, even though the title is off-putting to me... it suggest something medical, which always squicks me out!


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
