Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post! I did read some really good books since I wrote that. Responding to the comments:
Robin: I haven’t read Silent Tears yet but a friend of mine has the book and is going to loan it to me when she gets it back from the last person she lent it to.
Keri: No problem about the Christmas cards! Every year I debate whether I should just skip it that year and save myself the stress. I did skip the year we brought Allison home and nothing bad happened. LOL Strep twice? Yikes! Lindsey had strep/scarlet fever last month, and now she is sick again with a bad cough and fever (although the fever is finally gone this morning, the cough remains). I haven’t read the books you mentioned – Beverly Lewis is not really my style and The Shack doesn’t appeal to me either. But thanks anyway!
Chris: Thanks again for the award!
Michelle: I did read the Twilight series last year. I really liked the first book in the series but liked each subsequent book less and less and then didn’t even finish the final book! I think I just got tired of the whole storyline. These are not typically my type of books at all – I have read a few fantasy or sci-fi books that I have liked, but for the most part I don’t like that genre at all, and after the last sci-fi I tried to read for a book club (Auralia’s Colors by Jeffery Overstreet) I decided I’m done with that genre totally. But thanks for the suggestions!
Kristen: I heard such good things about those books but I tried the first one and couldn’t get into it. I was disappointed because so many reviewers loved the books.
Books I have read and loved since that post:
Time of My Life by Allison Winn Scotch 5/5
Love the One You’re With by Emily Giffin 5/5
Where Do I Go? by Neta Jackson – author of the Yada Yada books, first in a new series, loved it 5/5
The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond 4.5/5
Testimony by Anita Shreve 4/5
And 2 books I read but didn’t care for too much:
The Doctor’s Wife by Elizabeth Brundage 2/5
Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult 3/5
I just started The Diplomat’s Wife by Pam Jenoff and it’s really good so far. I read her first book, The Kommandant’s Girl last year and really enjoyed that one. I’m going to the libary later today, yea! :-)
Have a great weekend everyone!
