I Don’t Want to Kill You by Dan Wells.

I can hear everyone now- “You haven’t read it yet??” I have been meaning to read this book for so long. It has been sitting on my shelf for months. I finally realized that I think I’m in denial about the awesomeness of this series being over. If I haven’t read the last book, it hasn’t ended for me yet, right? I know. Time to rip off the Band-Aid.

Sheila

Heart of a Hero by Marie Higgins

I want to read this book because I started it last week, and I really want to see what happens.

Mindy

Beyonders by Brandon Mull.

I really loved the Fablehaven series and I’m excited to see what this one is all about.

Don’t forget to tell us which book on your to-read list you have been dying to read!

I Don’t Want to Kill You

Author: Dan Wells

Publisher: Tom Doherty Associates, LLC

Published: April 2011

ISBN: 978-0-7653-2249-4

Hardcover: 320 pages

First of all this will be a short review. I can not say much about this book that won’t give anything away in the other two. If you haven’t read I Am Not a Serial Killer or Mr. Monster then you need to read those before this one.  I admit I was seriously freaked out to read these books, (see my review) but I wanted to finish my Whitney reading.  Yes, they are scary, a bit gory, and nothing I’ve ever read before.  But, that is what makes them as good as they are and unique.  I love reading a book and after awhile, taking a break, then realizing that my mouth has been hanging open for who knows how long.  That’s what it was like to read this final book.

**Possible Spoiler Alert**

John has been through a lot in the past few months.  Killing and speaking to demons is almost like brushing his teeth.  More mysterious things are happening in town that he and a friend try to figure out.  Young girls are killing themselves and local public figures are being killed.  John suspects everyone, but what he gets he wasn’t expecting.

**Spoiler Over**

This is was my favorite book of the series.  John really comes to terms with himself and learns a lot, not only about himself, but the people in his life.  Some shocking things happen, a couple things I anticipated, one huge thing I didn’t.

4 1/2 stars out of 5.
