Still flipping the pages of The Rocks and I think that I'm liking it. The books begins at present day and every 10 chapters or so, goes back by about ten years. The setting is beautiful and the writing is descriptive and complex, but not too overly done. So far, so good.

I'm on a 'light-read' kick right now.Just finished an Amish cozy mystery~ Hearse and Buggy which I liked pretty well,except for two major complaints[lowered my rating of it because the author carries the same two story lines into the second book] ,then Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Grange, which I loved, and now I am reading the 5th book in the Miss Julia cozy mystery series~ Miss Julia Meets Her Match.

Sounds like you are on a good roll.


I just finished/skimmed my way through The Eyre Affair. It was too fantasy for me. If you are a fan of classics this one might be good for you.


I started Every Fifteen Minutes last night. This one seems like it will keep me interested So far so good….although I will most likely think the protagonist(the good ole doc) will be too much of a wuss.

Oh, hi, Netwit.

The library had Underground in Berlin ready for me. I went -- in the rain! and I got my car washed yesterday! -- to pick it up. I read a few pages of it but I fear that my concentration is not up for it right now. We'll see how it goes but it might be a perfect of example of the right book at the wrong time.

Well, I know all too well how that goes - right book, wrong time. My number one girl (dog) is very sick and it might be time, any time, so I have no idea what I am reading either. I am not even sure what I am thinking.

(((Hugs))), Our furbabies are such a big (and wonderful) part of our lives. It is heartbreaking when they are ill.

I finished reading Silent Scream by Angela Marston. I thought it was great. I loved the lead character and it was definitely a page turner. This is the first in a series so I am sure I will be reading more by this author.

As soon as the last sentence was read in SS I started Finders Keepers. I am 75% through and I'm loving it! I think SK is the master of story telling once again. I couldn't force myself to pick up one of his books for many years but the magic is back.
