Trust me the more Anne Bishop writes the more axious I am that she will stop this series which would be a seriously bad thing because I don't think I will ever be ready to this series to come to an end. Keep writing Anne Bishop!   posted Apr 8, 2011 at 1:10PM

Cover ArtPlaying with fire : tales of an extra ordinary girl

Cover ArtThe secret garden
by DuBose, Martha Hailey.
I'm not too much of a fan for the classics but in elementry school I picked this one up...wasn't really a fan, I did like another classic by the orignal author of this book by burnett, which was a little princess and that although sad is worth checking out book & movie alike.   posted Apr 8, 2011 at 10:43AM

The first installment of the Mercy Thompson series, a decent read. Not great but not bad either. I an pulled in enough to want to pursue some more of the series eventully but it's not that strong of a pull.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 11:21PM

This book is part of the Alpha & Omega series that is in a part of Mercy Thompson's world & Although I seem to like the Mercy Thompson Series a little better, this one is still worth checking out if you like The Mercy Thompson series.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 11:19PM

Cover ArtLoves music, loves to dance
by Clark, Mary Higgins.
this is one of my top three mary Higgins Clark favorites, My other two being "the Cradle will Fall" & "Weep No More My Lady." if you like light suspense/fiction give mary higgins clark a check out at the local library or your nearby bookstore she most likely won't dissappoint.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 11:18PM

Cover ArtBone crossed
by Briggs, Patricia
now I may be reading this series out of order and for that am slightly confused with some of the subtle references they make it in it but from what I can grasp it was a pretty good book I decided to start from the beginning of the Mercy Thompson series After picking it up which is titled Moon Called which you can find a little ways below this title on this list.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 11:15PM

Cover ArtThe cradle will fall
by Clark, Mary Higgins.
Possibly my favorite Mary Higgins Clark Book, it was also the first one I ended up picking up by this author as well. I have read it more then once and not felt guilty about reading it again, instead of reading books I haven't yet got around to reading yet.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 11:06PM

Cover ArtLittle women
by Alcott, Louisa May, 1832-1888.
I hate, hate, hate this classic it brings back bitter memories of a friendship break-up I had with a person who was my best friend in elementry school, at the time we shared a keen interest for this book and always played our "imaginary games/house based on this book" but I guess X-best friends can make or break books just as well as they can anything else.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 11:04PM

Cover ArtWeep no more my lady [audio cassette]
by Clark, Mary Higgins.
One of Those good light reads that aren't a waste of time & you don't feel guilty reading. I Could only find the audio book in the catalog so that's why it says audio cassette in the title. but I did fact read the book and not listen to the audio. I'm not the hugest fan of audio not that I'm trying to knock audio books I just don't count them as something you can acutally count as reading.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 11:01PM

Cover ArtDeception point
by Brown, Dan, 1964-
Although not part of the Robert Langdon Series, still a decent supsenseful thriller this one instead of focusing on symbology is more on the subjects of science & politics. a fairly decent read.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 9:16PM

Cover ArtAngels & demons
by Brown, Dan, 1964-
By far my favorite Dan Brown Book, four priests have been picked out, abuducted, and threatened to be killed by the use of the four elements, and that's just the tip of the ice berg as Robert Langdon the symbologist tries to stop the murders from happening.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 9:13PM

Cover ArtThe Count of Monte Cristo
by Dumas, Alexandre, 1802-1870.
In All honesty I didn't like the book as much as I liked the movie, the movie had a happier ending then the book but it is a classic and I had to pick it up for a reading class in High School because my teacher "couldn't think of anything else at the time to assign."   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 9:04PM

Cover ArtArchEnemy
by Beddor, Frank.
The third Installemnt and most likely the last of the "Looking Glass Wars series" by far probably the most fast paced of the three but not necessarily the best of the three either I was impressed and not by the ending, it even wasn't done bad, they just crammed a little to much detail into the last chapter and could have gone into a little more discriptive detail on the last battle which I was exepecting would last a little longer then the second to last chapter or less.   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 8:57PM

Cover ArtInto the mist
by Banks, Maya.
I only read this book because I was able to buy it for cheap on my nook, it was ok, as it goes I'm not to highly into the romance genre and this was for sure more a romance then suspense, & I would't read it again for probably the reason that it was mostly romance but if you like that kind of stuff this would be a contemporary romance to check out   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 8:50PM

Cover ArtOut of the shadows
by Hooper, Kay.
a paranormal investigative series that I think should not be shelved in the romance section of the book stores at barnes & Noble considering it is more mystery or fiction suspence then romantic. Anyways a good read for paranormal fiction like style. I found it a good light read and interesting   posted Apr 7, 2011 at 8:48PM

This was one ending to a series that I was completley unimpressed with the ending to the movie was better then the book and the movie was terrible.
