Books...

I know you non-stampers must be sick to death of seeing cards (and probably the stampers too! LOL). Last night was my t.v. night so I didn't have time to stamp anyway. I decided to post about the books I've recently read.

The one I finished yesterday was The Faraday Girls by Monica McInerney. I thought it was going to be just so-so, maybe too much on the silly side (like Janet Evanovich). I just don't understand what people see in her books. It's not funny to me, it's pretty goofy (sorry if I'm offending anyone here).

Anyway, the more I got into The Faraday Girls, the more I was intrigued. I had a hard time putting it down toward the end. It's a good read in my book, pardon the pun! Ok, now I'm sounding like Janet E. Sorry!












I am now reading Before You Know Kindness by Chris Bohjalian. He also wrote another book I loved called, The Double Bind. I'm hoping this will be a good one!











If you're a big reader, do you know about www.Goodreads.com? I keep track of the books I read there and also get book recommendations from friends.

Have a good weekend!

Good reviews! I'm not really familiar with either author or those books, so good to hear about :)

Hope you have a great day and weekend!!!

I will have to add them to my library list. I like fun reads like Janet E series and also enjoy Sue Grafton series and Diane Mott Davidson (all mystery). Always good to have new authors to look for.

I will have to post about the book I actually bought today...I cannot wait to read it!
