If there’s one thing Joe Schreiber does well, it’s capturing the element of wicked fun. Perry’s Killer Playlist brings the same entertaining intensity of Au Revior Crazy European Chick but in a whole new chapter of the adventure. This time Perry is on a Eurpean tour with his band Inchworm, and things are about to get interesting. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you dated an assassin? Well for Perry, this is sort of the unfortunate circumstance of his life. There’s this girl named Gobi who he sort of has a crush on but won’t admit it. She’s special. Of course it’s special in that she’s a trained killer who sort of kidnapped him so she’d have someone to drive her around while she killed people and ultimately got his house blown up. But hey, love is blind, right? Regardless, Perry has a thing for this deadly femme fatale. Alas, things don’t go quite so well for Perry in this chapter of the adventure. Especially when Gobi runs into Perry’s new girlfriend. Long story short, gunshots are fired, people are running for their lives, there are Bourne Identity commando spies attacking left and right, Santageddon happens, and chaos runs amok at every turn. If you’ve read Au Revoir Crazy European Chick, you have an idea of how things go. Joe Schreiber has a knack for turning out great, intense stories that run fast and exciting. You’ll only need one evening to churn through Perry’s Killer Playlist, but it’ll be a blast. All of the fun that was captured in the first book continues in this one. Even if you haven’t read Au Revoir Crazy European Chick, you’ll still be able to pick up on enough of the backstory to not miss out. The prose and storytelling is both witty and engaging. Best of all, Joe starts the book off with a terrific hook and keeps the pace flowing throughout. There’s just the right amount of character chemistry, action, and internal dialog. With story elements similar to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, Perry’s Killer Playlist reads like a cinematic tour de force. It’s intense and engrossing. I highly recommend this book to any Star Wars or horror fan who would like to see a different side to Joe Schreiber. Joe is a truly gifted writer who can do a lot more than gory horror stories. The humor, the characters, and the off the wall scenes have a perfect balance. Plus there’s a fun little tuckerism with Star Wars Del Rey Editor Erich Schoeneweiss that made me laugh out loud when I came across it. If you’re looking for a quick, fun, thrill ride story, then look no further. This story is cover to cover entertainment and a earns a well deserved five out of five.

Perry survived his disastrous prom night with crazy-exchange-student-assassin Gobi. And he has to admit things are looking up. His college essay about said disastrous prom night earned him a spot at Columbia. His band Inchworm is on a European tour and on the verge of an actual record deal. He has a majorly hot (older) girlfriend. And, best of all, with Gobi out of the picture no one has tried to shoot him for months. Too bad it was all too good to last. Gobi, the Lithuanian exchange student of Perry's nightmares, is back and this time she isn't making any bones about the people that need to die; the people she needs to kill. Once again sucked into Gobi's whirlwind of death and destruction Perry will have a lot of tough decisions to make before his European trip is over--assuming he lives that long in Perry's Killer Playlist (2012) by Joe Schreiber. Perry's Killer Playlist is the high-octane sequel to Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. This one stands alone pretty well given the emphasis on murder and mayhem but the story will make more sense with the context of book one. This novel is another improbable but entertaining rampage as Perry unwillingly accompanies Gobi on her deadly business. Perry is still a great narrator with just the right blend of terror and pluck. While a lot of the story will feel very familiar (arguing about murder doesn't change much no matter what the book) Schreiber delves into some new territory addressing Perry's unresolved feelings for Gobi and featuring his family in a larger part of the story. With lots of excitement, a breakneck pace, and lots of short chapters this is a great pick for anyone looking for a fast but satisfying read. If you want to recreate Perry's killer playlist, the short chapters are labeled with different song lyrics.

I am in love with Gobi and Perry. Does anyone know when the third one might possibly be happening?

Freaking awesome. The only two words in the English dictionary that can be used together to describe my thoughts of Perry’s Killer Playlist by author Joe Schreiber. Seriously, after reading Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick his first YA novel, I have been eyeing the sequel for about a month and now that I’ve finally gotten to read it I can proudly say that I = mind blown. I had my concerns, I mean, the first novel was nothing but Perry getting to play Gobi’s getaway driver/hostage before he learns that he might be falling for her. Well, that and the fact that he becomes her accomplice to the murders she pulled off in New York City. Perry and Gobi are back and this time, it’s on Gobi’s home turf of Europe. Europe, guns, betrayal and a femme fatale? Yeah, that sounds like my cup of tea. Perry’s Killer Playlist occurs a few months after the events that took place in Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. We have our main character Perry who is now living a life without Gobi. He has found a new girlfriend, his band is going on a European tour and after one day in Venice, Perry has found Gobi again. She has another hit list and she needs his help, whether he likes it or not. Perry and Gobi travel around Europe, finishing off the men that Gobi has marked for death. The two characters quarrel much like in the last novel, but the difference now is that Perry must face his feelings towards Gobi while Gobi begins to hide the single thing on this Earth that can kill her from Perry. To make things worse for our buddy Perry, it looks like his girlfriend might be just as messed up as the girl who keeps on taking him hostage; Hasn’t he figured out yet that if their name starts with a constant and ends with a vowel they are most likely assassins? The one thing I think I loved most about Perry’s Killer Playlist was that it takes the story in a whole new direction. It isn’t the novel before it being repeated in a different setting, the plot is entirely different, the characters seem to have developed into these badass creatures and with that comes more dangerous situations. Perry goes from being the hostage to actually getting his hands dirty himself, and as he faces his feelings for Gobi we get to see a side of him that wasn’t really looked into in the last novel. Perry reaches an extreme and I loved every minute of it. I’ll admit that I felt like the action that we got throughout  Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick wasn’t seen as much in Perry’s Killer Playlist. Sure Gobi was still killing bad guys left and right and sure there were still tons of moment where I thought she was going to shoot Perry in the face, but there were more people problems in this novel. We have to deal with Gobi’s own mortality, emotions, girlfriends turning out to be assassins and what not. But, considering the deux ex machina that we got at the end of the novel, I’ll let it all slide. The ending might have been one of my favorite scenes out of all the YA novels I’ve read. It screamed Rush Hour 3 meets every movie that has Jason Statham. Seriously, by the time the novel came to a close my heart was tired from pounding so much and alas, I found myself yearning for the third novel that I’m sure won’t disappoint. I’d recommend this novel to fans of the one prior to it. Readers who love action and thrillers will adore series and those of us who are looking for quick reads will probably have just found the apples of their eye.
