Good Reads…

I almost didn’t get to write this post. Well, I did write it but then God got pissed at me and my site crashed causing me to lose all but the first paragraph of the original draft. I was so pissy about it that I said “Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh”. Sob. *hiccup*. Also “Mehehehehehehehe” *sniffle* and spent a good hour pouting and declaring my blogging days OVER rather than spend the time to fix the problem….(Yes, yes, I am a bit dramatic at 6:00 in the morning, wha??) After the hiccups subsided, I contacted my web host and they walked me thru the fix. 🙂

I felt much better as I headed to work until I got into town and almost got T-boned not once but twice by Asshats who can’t figure out the concept of wait your turn at the 4 way stop. Grrrrrr….Luckily I made to to work alive and after a coffee and a bagel decided I’d rewrite my book review instead of actually doing any work while at work. Yay me….

I’ve been pretty diverse in my choice of reading material lately. Which is why I have 597,698,568 books on my Ereader at any given moment, ‘cuz I never know what I’ll be in the mood for…

I’m currently about halfway thru The Help which has been so good, and told from an interesting perspective. It’s also totally pissed me off from time to time but I think that was at least in part, the reaction that Kathryn Stockett was going for…

Hex Hall was recommended by one of my pseudo daughters. It was a cute little light read, supernatural without the gore you find in the Anita Blake Series, minus the sap of Twilight, and without the kanoodling that abounds in the Sookie Stackhouse Books. So why on earth would I finish it and then purchase the sequel to it without all the fun stuff in the supernatural/vampire books I usually read??? ‘Cuz it was good that’s why!

I do love me some blood, gore and kanoodling!

Ivory was…..interesting. Weird. Intriguing. Alot like a car wreck on the highway that you can’t help but look at….it was free and I’ll read about anything that’s free. Sometimes you get what you pay for, but this one was actually pretty good in a say what?? kind of way…

See? Creepy...but now you're intrigued aren't you?

One day I think I downloaded like 9 free books from the Sony store, After Life: Love was another one. It was a little sappy, but also a little dark and disturbing. I probably wouldn’t have bought it, but I enjoyed it….

Ok, go ahead and send me hate mail for this but, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo…COULD.NOT.GET.INTO.IT. Just couldn’t. It’s very rare for me to give up on a book, especially one I actually paid for but it was just dry and bogged down in detail that I didn’t feel added anything to the plot line….If you read it and loved it, my apologies…

The Dark Tide was another one of the free downloads I got that day. A nice little mystery that kept me guessing, as any good whodunit should!

I swear vampire books is not all I read. I swear!!! But Fledgling got such good reviews I couldn’t pass it up. The perspective it is written from is such a departure from the whole vampire fiction genre. It kept me enthralled to the very end, which I thought was too abrupt as I wanted more closure than it gave me…

To say I adored Like Water For Chocolate is an understatement…I was so sad when I got to the last page, which is exactly the feeling you want from a good read! Loved it….L.O.V.E.D.

Did I mention I loved this book??

Forgive me if I’ve mentioned this before but read The Hunger Games Trilogy. Do it. DO IT NOW.

And Please for the love of God, remember that it’s best to be patient and wait until it’s your turn at the 4 way stop otherwise you make people stabbity and you never know when that person will decide to stalk you…

What have y’all been reading?

  1. I got so engrossed in The Help that I stayed up until 4 am one morning to finish it. Not a good idea when you have four little ones to get to school the next morning. Like you, I grew enraged at times, and what I found most shocking is that this is recent history. I hope the days this novel depicts are long gone.

    • Unfortunately I don’t think they are. Being from the South I can tell you that while they mostly go unspoken these days, the opinions remain the same to a lot of folks….It’s very sad.

  2. These sound interesting, especially Fledgling. I’ve heard the Hunger Games Trilogy recommended over and over; I think that might have to be my next choice. As for what I’m reading now, a diet book of all things! I NEVER buy into the diet book deal but I happened to see this one on the bookshelf at the library. Just Tell Me WHAT to Eat! by Timothy S. Harlan, MD. Harlan is also a chef. I’m still in the introduction so I can’t really comment on it yet.

    Before that I finished Jonathan Kellerman’s The Conspiracy Club which was awesome. It started a little slowly but kept me intrigued. Before that I read Barbara Delinsky’s The Vineyard, about 2 strong women from different generations; The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver which I reviewed on my blog. Loved both.

  3. My list of authors is so long it could circle the block. I love vampire stuff, but then I love the supernatural stuff, too, as long as it’s not too gory. Have you read the Karen Marie Moning Fever series? (I’ve read it three times so far, which is saying something for me, I usually only read through stuff twice if I really like it)
    I also recently discovered Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter, and although I liked Christine Feehan, lately her stuff is getting repetitive (which seems to happen around book eighteen of any given series). Are you a Janet Evanovich fan?

    I’m stopping now, or this comment will end up longer than your post.
