I love your profile picture! My mother got that book for me on my birthday a couple years back, its very sweet and reminds me of my basset hound. :)
It was so much fun to get all the pictures of pets reading. I'm glad we did it too. That is such a great picture of Barney. We only have one book on audio by Shelley Shepard Gray and it doesn't look like it is the same series. It looks like a Christian Fiction Romance. And you know me, I can't read anything we don't own cause I can't read fast enough to keep up as it is! We do have Hearse and Buggy by Laura Bradford. It is first in a little paperback mystery series. Have you tried it?
Just wanted to recommend a couple of books, like the mother of a senior has any time to read! Loved Lisa Scottoline's My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just has More closet Space. Laugh out loud funny and if you enjoyed The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus you will enjoy this, without the empty nesting angst. Also really enjoyed Connie Brockway's The Other Guys Bride. A laugh out loud (witty dialog) historical romance. Notice I am working on the really heavy challenging books right now! :)
I'm surprised you could quit with the C.J. Box series. It has me so sucked in. I've read two since that last one I asked you about. They seem to be much less on the woo woo side now. Must just be one every so often. I only read the first in the Archer Mayor series although Eric read probably 10 or 12 before he burned himself out. I enjoyed the first story but for some reason it didn't suck me in like Karin Slaughter or C.J. Box. Must just have been the mood I was in at the time.
Okay, you are a C.J. Box fan... I just finished Trophy Hunt, does he continue on with the woo woo stuff he starts in that book? Like Sheridan's dreams and Nate's comments about the bear etc... They seem to be starting down the path that Suzanne Arruda was heading down with the Jade del Cameron books. I really like that series too but sometimes the unexplained mystical can be too much. Does Box pull it back into reality? Joe is such a real, regular guy. Anyway, just curious about your thoughts.
I love the picture of your basset! What a cutie. :) I have 3 myself.
I saw your note but haven't logged into shelfari in a while. Crazy short weeks, holidays and all that jazz. Thanks for pointing the book out to me, no I didn't even know it was out. I have now alerted Jan to the gaping hole in our collection. Hopefully we'll get it soon cause I'd sure like to read it too.
You are better than me, then. If I don't like the one I pick up, I usually don't go back to the author. Maybe something I should reconsider. I read several Penelope J Stokes..recently read one of hers I didn't like much....felt like a whole different author.
Jodi Piccoult. That was who I was trying to think of today. Had to look it up as soon as I got home to ease my crazy brain. Sheesh.
No, I haven't read one of hers in quite a while. That sounds like a fun summer read though. Somehow I have a bunch backed up on the coffee table that I need to get through soon. Everything is going pretty smoothly with the project so far but then we haven't started groundbreaking. :) The car cruise went really well Saturday evening. I had no idea there were so many old cars in Shenandoah. Feel free to complain anytime and then I can just vent right back to you! Hope the start of school is going well. Think Pink! ;)
Hi Janet,I run a blog called Number One Novels (numberonenovels.blogspot.com) to spread the word about debut authors. On the blog I interview debut authors and run contests to give away their new novels. Running Monday, July 4 through Sunday, July 10, Number One Novels is interviewing Schneider about her debut novel, The Wedding Writer (with a contest for a chance to win a copy of the novel). If you liked Mary Kay Andrews’ Summer Rental, you might enjoy Schneider’s debut novel. I'm trying to find new avenues for garnering more attention for authors launching their career. If you're interested in debut authors of genre fiction, I’d love to become your friend.
You might have already read this book to classes, but I think it's cute, it's called Mr. Wolf and the Three Bears by Jan Fearnley. I think the kids would get a big kick out of it.
I liked it, read it yesterday. Will continue, thanks!
I will! I LOVE quilts and do quilt when I find time...woohoo, some books that won't run out too fast on me! Spent the day yesterday on fantastic fiction looking up my favs. I'm still astounded at the amt of books you read, how do you read so many at one time?
So it looks like you are enjoying the quilter's books series? Should i try?
I'm glad you liked it too. Deborah Coonts also writes a little like Janet E. You would probably enjoy Wanna Get Lucky? They mystery is a no brainer but the characters are fun and over the top. The language was clean but things got a little scary with the Porn Industry awards and the spouse swapers all hitting Vegas in the same week. I think I'll brave it and review it on the radio. Hope no one I actually know reads it too! :) I don't know what they'll think of me then.
I loved it. I'm really sorry I waited so long to read it. I was afraid it was going to be "literary" and I didn't want to have to wade through a book that required too much thought. Missed the mark on that one. The audio rocked, the readers did a fabulous job of making the characters come alive. Don't you just want to move there with Juliet?
You seem to be a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips so I'd like you to come check out the group named for her (Susan Elizabeth Phillips.) The link is below.I'm the new administrator and hope you consider joining. There will be many topics for discussion and hope to have you participate in the conversations. We welcome you.You may also be interested in the J. D. Robb Rules group since you seem to be a fan of the In Death series.http://www.shelfari.com/groups/16738/about
If you get a chance to read it, Liar, Liar by K.J. Larsen. It is like Stephanie Plum goes to Chicago. Anyway, I think you'll enjoy it.
I was just covering books and saw one that made me think of you. You should check out Diane Atkinson's book Elsie & Mairi Go to War (NF). It is about two British women ambulance drivers in WWI. Made me think of Maisie Dobbs and Jade del Cameron. If I were to do a display oh guru of WWI books, are there any others similar, women, nursing etc....
