Wisteria (Book #1) by Bisi Leyton Book Review for Blog Tour

Summary by Goodreads:

Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.

Eighteen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.

Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.

My Review:

This book is great for teens and adults who love zombie books or suspenseful books.

I found that even though it was a slow start, once it did get started it had everything that a reader wanted in a zombie story.  I love that Bisi Leyton showed Wisteria as a strong young woman. I do hope the next book that they elaborate more on Bach and his background. I love the two characters (Wisteria and Bach) banter back and forth in the book. And hope to see more in the second book! The only downfall to this book is the slow start but that may be due to needing to establish the characters. A great read that I will probably read again!!

I give this book 4 1/2 stars!

Do you love VH sauces? How could you not with all the flavours available to make any dish complete! Before I ended up with kidney failure and not able to use a lot of these sauces they were something I loved to experiment with on all my dishes. (my dialysis diet doesn’t allow me to have them but a healthy person is able to use these wonderful sauces!)
Check out the contest on the blog The Knit Wit by Shair. I am entering and hoping to win for my family. My husband loves VH sauces as much as I do!

Please Just clean your room!

The hardest thing for me to get done is for my children to clean their rooms! 

I find it is like pulling teeth, you keep grasping ways to get them to do it. I have tried bribing my children with money, treats like McDonald’s, and even threatening to not allow television time.  Yet nothing seems to stick.

One mother has told me that if her children leave garbage around the house, she asks them once to pick it up then she puts it in their bedroom so they can see what they are leaving around the house. I’d do that but then my kids rooms would look like a local dump!

The problem is mainly my fault. When my kids were little I picked up after them. I figured they were children and they needed to be allowed to play without the worry of chores. Now it is coming to bit me in the behind for doing so.

So now my husband and I are stuck with actually doing the cleaning for them. Maybe we will get it right when we have grandchildren!
How do you get your children to clean up after themselves?
