I read 4 book series by Ann Rice. The beauty series. Very erotic way better than fifty shades trilogy.

Ooh fun. Green covers that I have read and liked

Delirium (Delirium #1) by Lauren Oliver

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See



Spring time is harder. I read Chocolat by Joanne Harris and The Secret Garden is on my list to read.

Just finished "One in a Million Boy"; wasn't a page turner for me so I've given it a 3 out of 5.

On to: "Woman in the Window".

You've been reading some books I truly loved...

Snow Flower, Chocolat (loved this movie too, with Juliette Binoche)

I am reading Paul and Jesus: How the Apostle Transformed Christianity , by James Tabor. This is the second read of this book for me, and I am stimulated and fascinated all over again.

Tabor is a surprisingly easy read for an academic.

I also gave it 3 out of 5.

The Woman in the Window rated higher for me. I loved the references to the old black and white mystery movies. It makes me want to look some up and watch them as I have never seen any.

I really liked Snow Flower. I enjoyed Chocolat but never watched the movie.



I gave up on Freshwater. It was too bizarre for me.


I started The Zookeeper's Wife last night. It is a book club read and if I finish it by Wednesday I will join the ladies.

The Other Einstein. Fascinating, an easy read and impossible to put down. Loved it. Give it 5 stars

Ylisa- I started The Zookeeper's Wife a while ago and have not had a chance to read at all.... so thank you for the push- I was liking it though only at the beginning...and I hear it was pretty good. I need to actually READ it.
