Anyone still reading this blog? Leave a comment!

Seriously, something is wrong with me. I have totally abandoned this book club, without meaning to. Please forgive me.

Anyone still interested in participating? I've been involved in my ward book club and I've been going crazy at Come join me there! I have over 600 books on my lists (read, to read, partly read, and currently reading). You can look me up by my email address or my real name.

If you're looking for a fun fantasy series, read City of Bones. I just finished it a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it! (Ignore the cover of the hot boy without a shirt!)

As for Maise Dobbs, I absolutely loved it! It's the beginning of a series that I'd love to pick up, when I have a little more time.

Another fabulous book that all women should read is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. An absolute jem!

Currently, I'm reading a biography on Evita (not very exciting, but for my book club at church this month--I chose which "influential woman from history" to read about, so it's my own fault).

The Man Who Loved Books Too Much:
The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession
by Allison Hoover Bartlett

I finished this book this week for book club. Let me just say that I liked it more than I thought I would. Give it a try!

Good book

I've just read "Wish You Well" by David Baldacci and loved it. For anyone who reads him, you'll find that this book is nothing like his mystery/lawyer books. It was so down to earth and heartwarming. I think you'll enjoy this book. PS- give it a couple of chapters to get into. It's worth it.

Series books

The next series I want to start:
(I know, everyone loves this book. Don't. Say. Anything. I HATE spoilers. And I hate getting my expectations too high.)

Series books I've read recently:

The second in the series. Even though it's written by my cousin, I'm not showing bias when I say it's a really good book!

So this is the 10th in the series. But even though it's been awhile since I've read about this Mma, I was able to pick it up easily. This series is definitely a to-read for everyone. Not only are the mysteries interesting and fun, but the short lessons on life are practical and full of wisdom.

So good! If you haven't read the first three in this series, where have you been?!!!

Where the Wind Sings

My cousin wrote this book and I think it is fabulous!

Abandoned as a small child, seventeen-year-old Brannon Reeves has lived and worked with her aunt, Lila, tucked away from the modern world in a forest cottage. But an attractive stranger, an accusing news story, and the discovery of a long-kept family secret shatter her simple life overnight. Thrust into a world of betrayal and persecution, she must face an enemy she never knew existed. Will she suffer the same fate as her mother? Can hope, courage, and love conquer evil?

April Read

Hi everyone, I am new to this, but suggested this book for the month of April. Ruth asked me to be in charge, so here goes...

The book is called, "The Colony" by John Tayman. It is a true account of the exiles on the island of Molokai in the Hawaiian Islands. It is about the lepers who were sent there without any say as to their future. I hope everyone enjoys it. I personally LOVE anything about the Hawaiian culture and it's history. So, I know this story will touch your hearts and souls. It won't be luau's and mumu's, but maybe it will give us each a glimpse of how blessed we each are. Enjoy!

Great Book!

If anyone's looking for a good book, In Search Of Eden was fabulous. It was about adoption and finding love. Linda Nichols is the author. Enjoy!!
