You're reading Sackett!
How are you liking it?
I havn't got to that one yet
only read first 3 in that series so far - I'm compulsive about going in order - lol. Although I don't think L'Amour wrote them in order - just kind of filled in here and there. It starts back in like the 1600's in England.
But I think any of his books even the ones in series, will stand on their own.
from across the pond in England.
I wish I lived in San Francisco!
I see how much you enjoyed ‘Replay' by Ken Grimwood.
Having now read it myself, I agree with you that it's definitely a great book. Your "first impressions" review was a very detailed one indeed. Well done!
I’m searching for someone like you who appreciates the more original and interesting fiction that might be interested in trying out my novel trilogy "The DEAD LOOP". It is easy to read, emotive and a unique psychological thriller mystery about a man that dies every single day but has no idea why.
My first Shelfari reader wrote on Amazon US: ‘one of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time... There is just something about the idea and the writing combined that from the very first few pages grabs you by the hand and tugs you along to see what comes next and fires your imagination to begin trying to figure out why it is happening.’
Part 1 is free on Kindle every 18 days or so, or $1.25 normally.
Or it’s free all the time if you have Kindle Prime!
If it intrigues you at all and want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback.
I promise you that you won’t regret it!
Complete Trilogy edition (if you’re feeling bold!)
That is quite a surprise, and I definitely agree with you about the writing aspect of the books, although I have yet to read book 3 of "The Hunger Games." At the same time, I am not as surprised as you might presume because people find ways to censor knowledges at any level. BTW: The Laurell K. Hamilton book has arrived! I have yet to open the package, though, as I am focusing on catch-up this weekend with grading and school work!
I have published three ebooks on Amazon Kindle, Smashwords, B&N, etc., and would be delighted if you would add one or more of these books to your TBR list. If you could also write a review, that would be super.
The titles and links for the books are as follows:
The Ghost Of A Flea - Murder and romance in the Big Apple
Quarantine – A sci-fi thriller set in East Africa with a bizarre ending
The Watcher – An occult horror thriller set in New England with a supernatural twist
Thank you for taking the time to consider my request.
Have a great day.

Speaking of Hugo award books, did you read both of Vernor Vinge's award winners for '93 (A Fire Upon the Deep) and '00 (A Deepness in the Sky)? I read that a sequel is coming out this year to the '93 book. It's called The Children in the Sky. Do you like his books?
I started the book that comes after the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the prologue aludes to abuse at age 13 with Salander. I'm not far enough along to know if it goes back farther than that, but I do have some sympathy for her in light of that info. Trauma can do some horrible damage to a young person, and if she never sought counseling treatment for it, I imagine she's gone all these years never knowing who she can really trust, or how to trust.
What Hugo award winning books did you get from the sci fi book club? :)
