Love this ... it's so true.

Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas - Gemma Halliday Enjoyed the read, and look forward to trying out the high heels mysteries.

Elvis Has Not Left the Building

Elvis Has Not Left the Building - J.R. Rain I really enjoy Mr. Rain's writing, and this one was a really fun read. Well worth picking up!


Snowdomed - John A. Holten One of the strangest stories I've read in a long while.

The Last Page

The Last Page - Libby Fischer Hellmann, David J. Walker Surprising complete for such a short story. I enjoyed it.

The Host

The Host  - Stephenie Meyer I had had this book on my wish list for over a year, and decided to finally get around to reading it. Seemed interesting, especially after I had read an excerpt online. As it turned out, this book is one of the most gripping reads I've had in awhile. I enjoyed the characters, the story, and the writing in general. This one has earned a place on my "top-shelf favs".


Brainrush  - Richard Bard Enjoyed the read, especially during the 3rd of the three parts to this book. Original story, good story-teller. My only real complaint is about the editing, which was sometimes a bit of a distraction. Otherwise, I'd definitely recommend this, and I look forward to the next book in the series.

The Oracle of Stamboul

The Oracle of Stamboul - Michael David Lukas I received this book free through the Good Reads First Reads program.

I really enjoyed this lovely little story, and it's gotten me hooked on wanting to know more about the history of this region where the story takes place. Although I don't feel like it really wrapped up some of the loops of the story and I was still left with several questions at the end, I still feel like it was well worth the read and will probably read it again sometime. Plus, I would love to know what happened next in Eleanora's life even though I got the feeling that there won't be a second installment.

I liked most of the characters and thought they were fleshed out very well, considering this turned out to be such a quick read.

I would definitely keep my eye on this author, and look forward to future books from him.
