For Richer, For Danger-Lisa Bork-****4 stars
The series is getting better instead of losing steam. It is not a happily ever after fairy tale; it's real life, warts and all. The ending is full of heartbreak; can't wait for the third book to come out.

Quit stuffing your face and face your stuff.

4* Shoeless Joe by W.P.Kinsella

I'm not into baseball, but I still loved the movie Field of Dreams, so I was glad to see this book, which the movie was based on, free for Kindle.

A voice tells Ray Kinsella to build a baseball field in the middle of his cornfield in Iowa, where he lives with his wife Annie and his daughter Karin. Ray loves baseball, and despite people thinking he is crazy, he begins to construct a ball park on his farm, he knows that sometimes you just have to follow your heart, and Annie supports him in this. Shoeless Joe Jackson and other old time ball players come and play in his field.

The voice comes back, sending Ray on a journey to find J.D. Salinger and another ball player, Moonlight Graham. The journey takes time, but the story never feels slow or plodding. When Ray finally comes back home, he finds he is in danger of losing the farm, and the ball park that is on it.

The book was a lot different from the movie; I can't say that one was better than the other, they are good companion pieces for each other in my opinion. Even though I am not a baseball lover, I really enjoyed this book; it's about so much more than just baseball, it's also about life and dreams.

The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon 10 stars!!!!!

It's 1968 and Lynnie, a developmentally disabled white woman, and Homan, an African-American black man, are in love and have run away from the School for the Incurable and Feebleminded. They end up at a farmhouse of a retired & widowed schoolteacher named Martha with a baby girl who Lynnie had just given birth to. The authorities show up and Lynnie whispers, "hide her" to Martha before she is forced to return to the institution. Thus begins a 40 year journey in each character's lives.

Really incredible story and beautifully written.

Bleeding Hearts by Susan Wittig Albert ****

Another in the China Bayles series of ex defense laywer turned herb and tea shop owner in the Texas hill country town of Pecan Springs. Although owner of one business and partner in at least two others, China spends a lot of time enmeshed in investigations of suspicious deaths. This one focuses on a popular high school football coach with a penchant for underage girls. When one of them 'commits suicide', China uncovers a growing list of victims and bodies start falling like dominos. Entertaining reading - but if I lived in a town that small with that many murders, I'd definitely start checking the water.

2 novellas that I'm combining for one book - by Sela Carson - um, I'll give 'em 3.5 stars. Paranormal Romance stories

32) Carolina Wolf & Carolina Pearl

In the first one, we meet librarian Deb Henry, with a touch of witchcraft in her blood. Werewolf Maddox Moreau protects her from a rogue werewolf . In the second, Maddox's sister Blair is bored helping oput her very pregnant sister in law, Deb. She takes a walk (Deb insisted) and meets neighbor Conn Lucas - who's trying to restore the (haunted) house left him by an eccentric aunt. Can Blair and Conn escape from the nail gun of a bad-ol-boy cousin that hates Conn for being born on the wrong side of the blanket? I did mention these are romances, didn't I? (warning, hot sex scenes)


33) Done Gone Wrong by Cathy Pickens 4 stars

Lawyer Avery Andrews goes to Charleston to help a fellow lawyer in a case involving a pharmaceutical firm, and a man on a new drug who shoots up his workplace and coworkers before killing himslef. Along the way, we learn about drug research protocals.

A Gathering of Crows- Brian Keene ( 3 stars )

From Amazon.com

Brinkley Springs is a quiet little town. Some say the town is dying. They don't know how right they are. Five mysterious figures are about to pay a visit to Brinkley Springs. They have existed for centuries, emerging from the shadows only to destroy. To kill. To feed. They bring terror and carnage, and leave blood and death in their wake. The only person that can prevent their rampage is ex-Amish magus (and fan favorite character) Levi Stoltzfus. As the night wears on, Brinkley Springs will be quiet no longer. Screams will break the silence. But when the sun rises again, will there be anyone left alive to hear?

Stitches in Time by Barbara Michaels ****


An antique bridal quilt that under close scrutiny has something wrong with each square, an elderly woman found dead in her house, a grad student with a powerful attraction to the husband of a close friend, and a case of possible possession all combine and intertwine in this story of suspense and the supernatural.

A trilogy by Nora Roberts: The Calhouns: Catherine, Amanda, and Lilah 4 stars each (Romance novels)

29) "Courting Catherine" introduces us to the Calhoun women. They live in a crumbling, fantastic old house in Bar Harbour, Maine called The Towers. Hotel magnate Trent St. James is invited by "Aunt CoCo" to bid on the property - but fiery CC is determined to stop that! Great-granmother Bianca's journel flashes back to a doomed love in 1912, and the lost emeralds are introduced.

30) "A Man for Amanda" continues the story as Trent asks his buddy Sloan to be the architect on the renovation project. Fast moving, practical Amanda literally runs into Sloan - and the big Oklahoman gets her going. A jewel thief returns and threatens the family.

31) In "For the Love of Lilah", Professor Max Quartermain is swept overboard in a storm, and rescued by dreamy-eyed Lilah, whose a lot more practical than she appears. Max uses his research abilities to continue the search for the emeralds, as Bianca's journal gives more hints of the loveless marriage she endures and the beloved artist she wants.

Currently in the Hathaways series by Lisa Kleypas. I've finished the first 2 books (Amelia-Cam and Win-Kev stories) and currently on Poppy-Harry R story. So far, these books managed to influence me to gush, swoon over huge, dark-hair men, haha. Besides the hero, I love the heroines, how they stand up to the heroes and other people, their spirit and strength that can beat their phsyical weaknesses. And what I love about historical romance books, they gives me hopes to stumble into my own love story even if I'm "practical on the shelves", haha. Now, excuse me, I'm going to drown heavenly into the current book!

Ok So This is my first time posting here. I am suppose to post once a month or as I finish each book? Pnin By: Nobokov I would give 4.5 stars. I really enjoyed it. Up till now the only other book I have read of his has been Lolita and I was much younger, but now I think It will be a phase. I also recently finished "The Doctor is Sick" By: Burgess. Which is another author i have only read one other book by: "A clockwork Orange". I would give the Doctor is Sick a full 6 stars. The book was so so so good. It was funny, off beat, weird. I loved everything about it, the scenerey, the characters and their development... EveryTHING. READ IT. it's good. Oh yes and I also read this month "Drugs are nice" By Lisa Suckdog or Lisa Crystal Carver or carver crystal. I would give it 4 stars. I loved this book too, but for my own reasons. It encompassed everything I was as a youth, and many times I felt as if I was reading my own Diary or life story. It was not profound however, It wasn't to jarring. It was more of a biography. But there was nothing bad about it either. I have given it to two friends as a birthday gift.

Eek, to write a little blurb about each, next month I will put each book one at a time so I can. These were all pretty good. The Beverly Lewis books ended badly and were kinda boring. The rest of the books were really good.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver **** 4 stars

Lena Haloway is content in her safe, government-managed society. She feels (mostly) relaxed about the future in which her husband and career will be decided, and looks forward to turning 18, when she’ll be cured of deliria, a.k.a. love. She tries not to think about her mother’s suicide (her last words to Lena were a forbidden “I love you”) or the supposed “Invalid” community made up of the uncured just beyond her Portland, Maine, border. There’s no real point—she believes her government knows how to best protect its people, and should do so at any cost. But 95 days before her cure, Lena meets Alex, a confident and mysterious young man who makes her heart flutter and her skin turn red-hot. As their romance blossoms, Lena begins to doubt the intentions of those in power, and fears that her world will turn gray should she submit to the procedure.

The Snowman, by Jo Nesbo 5 Stars
A Norwegian thriller- Detective Harry Hole on the trail of a serial killer. At each crime scene, or disappearance, the killer leaves his calling card- a freshly made snowman. The victims are all young married women with children other links are not readily apparent. At first, in fact, no one believes Harry (who has trained with the FBI to catch serial killers) that these killings are the work of a serial killer. Very exciting plot line and conclusion.

Finger Lickin Fifteen and Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich 6 Stars
Follow Stephanie Plum...the worlds worst/luckiest bounty hunter and her sidekick Lula, as they attempt to catch bad guys. I would recommend starting with the very first one (One for the dough) and follow them in order. They are hilarious!

Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell 5 Stars
An awesome true story about 4 navy seals sent to Afganistan and how their mission turned for the worst after 1 fatal decision. I found the first 2 chapters to be very boring and I almost stopped reading, but was well worth it once I got past those.

The Last Vampire by Whitley Strieber 3 Stars
This book follows the journey of a vampire who finds out that humans are killing all the vampires. She tries to warn the other vampires but none of them believe humans are smart enough. It also follows the point of view of one of the hunters and 2 of the vampires servants. The end left a little to be desired.

Norwood by Charles Portis 4*

This book has a lot of funny characters and situations, but not much of a plot.
A good light read after Moby Dick.

This is Not the Story You Think it is by Laura Munson *** 3 stars

A kind of colloquial diary composed during the rocky summer her husband was suffering a midlife crisis, Munson aims to convince the reader that her hard-won serenity helped conquer her husband's shakiness at committing himself to their future together. When her husband (who remains nameless) announced his uncertainty that he loved her, then embarked on bizarrely atypical behavior, leaving her and their two children, eight and 12, wondering where he was, Munson had her own notions about what was ailing him, reinforced by mountains of self-help books and therapists: his job was failing, he was drowning in debt, and he was worried about losing their fabulous 20-acre horse-and-ski farm in rural Montana. Munson hoped he could regain a sense of gratitude for what they had, namely 15 years of a loving family. Munson urged her husband to take a trip, as she had just returned from a month-long rejuvenating stint to Italy, or even helicopter lessons, yet his resentment of her ran deeper than she cared to confront. She concentrated on what she could control, namely creating a nice home and throwing herself into community activism, then witnessed with joy her husband's gradual coming around.


50 is the new 30.

What You See in the Dark by Manuel Munoz **** 4 stars

In 1959, the Director (i.e., Alfred Hitchcock) arrives in Bakersfield, Calif., to film Psycho, along with the Actress (i.e., Janet Leigh), who's struggling to get a handle on the character she will portray. Providing counterpoint to the events surrounding the making of the iconic Hollywood film, including the search for a motel to serve as the exterior of the Bates Motel, is the story of locals Dan Watson and Teresa Garza, whose doomed love affair ends in murder. The author brilliantly presents the Actress's inner thoughts, while he handles the violence with a subtlety worthy of Hitchcock himself. The lyrical prose and sensitive portrayal of the crime's ripple effect in the small community elevate this far beyond the typical noir.

While Mortals Sleep by Kurt Vonnegut ****

I've long loved Vonnegut's wry powers of observation and scathing insight into the folly of so many of our actions. This volume is a collection of short stories written early in his career when he was just attempting to make his way as a writer and was trying to sell stories to the likes of Collier's and Saturday Evening Post. They have a totally different feel from his later novels where he faces grim reality head-on. I have to say I prefer the older, blunter Vonnegut, but enjoyed reading these earlier works and seeing his evolution as a writer.

Ashes of the Earth by Eliot Pattison ****.5

The world as we know it ended 25 years ago in a barrage of rogue dirty nuclear missiles and biological attacks which left most of the land area polluted and all but a fortunate few inhabitants dead. Pattison has done his research well and come up with likely scenarios of survivors with no electricity or internal combustion engines, but abundant timber, minerals, water, and wildlife leading to forges and then steam and water power. Carthage colony founder Hadrian Boone, once an admired educator, has become a laughingstock of a drunk - hounded for adhering to 'outmoded' principles and challenging the governor's increasing tyrannical authority. When the colony's leading scientific mind is found dead (officially a suicide, but an obvious murder), Boone embarks on a quest for answers, and refuses to stop at anything less that the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
