Still Weird Sleep


I didn't get to sleep until 9am today and got up at 2pm so I could go get labs. I stopped at the library to drop off one book and get two more on my way, and on the way home stopped at Olive Garden to have their berries and sherbet dessert (it's supposed to have zabione on it, but I don't like custard). I was exhausted when I got home and napped for two hours. I planned to clean all the litter boxes tonight, but that's not going to happen, so I just put fresh litter in.

I really need to be able to leave at 3pm tomorrow.

I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells


Susan de Guardiola talked about this on her blog and I got it from the library. I thought the first two-fifths was very boring, but things do start to happen later. There's going to be two more books, but I don't plan to read them.

The protagonist, John Wayne Cleaver, is fifteen and has Antisocial Psychiatic Disorder. He sees a psychiatrist every week to try to keep his own killer inside. He builds rules into a wall so he won't hurt anybody. The town has three deaths and at first John thinks it's a serial killer, but then he realizes who the killer is. He gives an anonymous tip to the police and both officers who turn up are killed. This is when he lets his wall down and his monster out, so he can kill the bad guy.

It was okay, but not my thing. Susan liked it a lot more, so you might want to click on the link above and read her review.
