Good Reads

One of my greatest loves is to read. If it were up to me, I would read from sun up till sun down, I would take a bath and then read some more and that would be my job. I often think I should have become an editor. I missed my calling. Sadly, reading doesn't always fit into my schedule. These kids I know need food and help with all sorts of things. They are real time crunchers, haha! But I do get on my reading kicks and I am on one now. Which basically means that I have to do my "mom job" all day, and I end up staying up way too late reading at night because that's the only chance I have to pick up my book. Then I'm tired and don't catch up on sleep till I'm finished reading the book. I find another great book to read after that and it all starts over. It's a vicious cycle. 

So, I'm on a kick. Here's a few good ones I've read recently.
 What can I tell you about this book? Well, for starters, it took me a little while to get into it. Which isn't good for me because I like my interest to be peaked quickly or I loose interest. My friend told me to keep going. And boy, am I glad I did! I turned a page after a few chapters, and all of the sudden it hooked me. This story is disturbingly crazy, juicy, mind boggling, and just plain sickly. I loved it. It will blow your little mind. Put this one on the top of your list. Where is Nick Dunne's wife???? You will just have to read and find out..........

 Funny story about this book. Have you ever seen the movie, The Vow? Good movie and even better because Channing Tatum is purdy in it. Well, in this movie, he asks her what her favorite book is. This was her favorite book. A couple of weeks ago I was looking through the shelves at Hastings and this was a used book on sale for $2.99. I finished this book Friday night and can I say, it was $2.99 well spent! This was a great book!!! I actually don't think I've ever read any James Patterson books. Maybe I will start now. This was a page turner that I couldn't put down. I love a good suspense novel. I stayed up till 2 am reading it one night if that tells you anything. Great read. You will love Jack and his grandfather, Macklin. I might have named on of my kids Mack if I had read this sooner. Love that name.
And who doesn't love a M.H. Clark mystery?!? This is her new book and it was great. I've read all her books and she never lets me down. I speculated the whole time who was the bad guy. Lots of stories going on and they all collide at the end. Gotta love Mary!

Thanks for the recommendations! I am adding them to my ever-growing list of books to read on Goodreads...are you on that site?

I am currently reading "Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons" by Lorna Landvik. It is excellent! I have read several of her books & they never disappoint.

Here's my Goodreads page -->

I really liked Gone Girl and also stayed up all night reading it! I haven't read the other two but will add them to my list.
