Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford

Summary:

Jane Austen has been turned into a vampire by another literary great. She has successfully continued to live around the world undetected. Her world is completely turned upside down when a book she’s been working on for the past two centuries gets published cans the vampire that turned her shows up.

Opinion:

I didn’t find this book particularly interesting. It is the first book in a series. Will not complete the series. Not recommended.

The Homework Machine by Dan Gutman

Summary:

Four students use a secret computer program to complete their homework. The jig is up though when their teacher hands out a surprise test. And it reveals who has and has not learned the material.

Opinion:

I like the idea of having a computer do my homework since I find homework tedious and pointless. The vocabulary in the book was too advanced for the age group the title was geared toward. Interesting read. No recommendation either way.
