Yesterday, I finished the book "Breaking the Rules" by Suzanne Brockmann. This is one of her Navy Seal Team 16/Troubleshooters Inc books. And, of course, I loved it. There isnt one that I haven't liked!

New books?

Sorry there hasn't been a more recent post. I can't say I have read anything this last week that has warranted a post.  "Blessed" by Cynthia Smith (young adult book) was pretty good, but there are two previous books that help this one make sense....

"Afterlife" by Claudia Gray (young adult book) was pretty good, and ended the story between Bianca and Luke. Gray is continuing Balthazar's story (yay!) in 2012.

Jennifer Ashley's Shifter series is pretty book. The second boo, "Primal Bonds", came out recently, and I rather enjoyed those.

That's all for now. If I can drag myself away from my new facebook game "Dragons of Atlantis" to do some reading, I will post again later this weekend!

Maximum Ride

Well, I finished all seven books in 2 days. I 'bout cried. No more. At least for a year. :(       I am sad. The books are full of action, just keep moving, not alot of down time. The main character, Max, I love her! She's sarcastic and funny and bossy (all of which she needs to be). *sigh* Ya just gotta read 'em, even though they are young adult.  Ive decided to try reading his Daniel X alien series.

James Patterson's Young Adult Books

I have never read any of Patterson's adult books.  Everyone says how good they are, but Ive never taken the time to read them.. A year ago, I read the first Witch & Wizard book and I loved it. So last December when the sequel came out, I devoured it. I've always looked at the Maximum Ride series, about the bird kids, and thought.... "um.. no". For years I have gone past them to something else on the shelf. So, last week, I got a hair up my.. um nose, and decided to read them. So I checked them all out. I started book one "The Angel Experiment" last night.. and wouldn't ya know it. I am hooked. Thank gods I  have all 7 books at home, because I would go nuts if I couldn't read them in order, right now. Y'all know how I am. So, anyways, I will report back after I am a couple of books into the series. See, I did that with Evanovich.. For 5 years I refused to read her, and now? Im hooked.

Happy Books

So, I've given you Picoult, Ive whined about Bishop, now I'm gonna give ya a few books that are just good, happy reads.

Linda Lael Miller- Nice, modern (some historical) cowboy romances. the McKettricks, the Montana Creeds, then the Arizona (I think!) Creeds. They are all related, however distantly. They are not heavy reading. They are some of those books that you can sit and read and not worry about thinking.

Robyn Carr- Virgin River series. Love em. Starts with Mel and Jack and spreads. There are always recurring characters, but each new book follows two new man characters.

Catherine Anderson- Coulter/Kendrick/Harrigan series. Theres 10 or 11 of these now. Only problem, in every book there is something wrong with the female. Abused, blind, wheelchair bound, head injury, abused again.. That's kind of annoying after awhile, but I still love 'em!

Anne Bishop.. How could you...

Now, I just want to remind people that, as this is MY blog, and it is to express MY opinions, I don't want any whining and complaining when I say that I (and I rarely use this word) Bishop's new book "Twilight's Dawn". Now, everyone knows that I get highly attached to certain books and characters. Well, this is one that I am attached to. I started reading the Black Jewels series about 7 or so years ago. It's a fantasy series, my first foray into fantasy after reading Harry Potter. I won't go into the major details, but the main character's name is Jaenelle (hehehe).
Anyways, Bishop decided to end the Black Jewels series with this "Twilight's Dawn" which is a collection of four stories, things I guess she thought we missed that happened between other stories, so she wrote them and put them in this collection. The first three stories are fine. I wouldn't say her best work, but little tidbits of information. The last story, however, is an abomination (PLEASE remember that this is my blog with my opinions!) I am not going to spoil it, for everyone else. But, I will tell you, I was happy to run across a review of the book before I finished it. I would rather read that review than be blindsided by how Bishop destroyed a perfectly good series. Okay, I have ranted and raved, and now I will go. Adios!

River Marked by Patricia Briggs

Yay a new Mercy Thompson book! I loved it. I don't want to do any spoilers so I won't tell what happened.  This is a series about Mercy, a coyote shapeshifter who runs a mechanic shop. In this series you will find werewolves, vampires, fae, and all kinds of weird stuff. I love em!

The Chaos- Numb8ers by Rachel Ward

Just Wow. This is a sequel to the book Numb8ers by Rachel Ward. In the first book, a teenager named Jem sees numbers. Specifally, when she looks at a person, she sees a date, that person's date of death. In this sequel, Jem's son Adam also sees numbers, but he also sees and feels the pain of that death.  In London, he sees the same number on almost everyone. The end of days is here, can Adam stop it?

I love these books. They certainly are not your happy teenage novel, and there's quite a bit of cursing in it. But, its awesome.

"Angelfire" by Courtney Moulton

This is a great new Young Adult paranormal book. I'm actually only about a quarter of the way through it, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I read the author's bio, and it turns out that she wrote this book during NaNoWriMo in 2008 (she was only like 21 or so!) and afterwards got an agent, and sold this book (and the two to come in the trilogy) to HarperCollins (well, an imprint, same dif). Totally awesome (I participated in NaNoWriMo last November, even though I didn't get my book finished). I will return later with more info on this book!

"Sing You Home" by Jodi Picoult

Wow, I finished this book this morning, and just wow! I was disappointed in the last two books she has written. Zoe and Max have been trying to have a baby for awhile, first through normal ways, then through in virtro. But this time, Max can't take it anymore. After the stillbirth of their son, Max asks for a divorce. Then he finds God. Zoe continues to have health troubles, but finds a wonderful new friend, Vanessa. Then the usual court battle starts. Both want the last three embryos that are frozen at the fertility clinic.  I'm not revealing the big twist in this book, since Picoult left it out of the book jacket. But its a GREAT book! READ IT!
