Books

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!
