My May reading list: 

Finished - 

  1. "SEALED WITH A RING" by Mary Margret Daughtridge (SEALed #3) (A++) She's got it all...except the one thing she needs most. Smart, successful businesswoman JJ Caruthers has a year to land a husband or lose the empire she's worked so hard to build. With time running out, romance is not an option, and a military husband who is always on assignment begins to look like the perfect solution. He's a wounded hero with an agenda of his own. Even with the scars of battle, Navy SEAL medic Davy Graziano is gorgeous enough to land any woman he wants, and he's never wanted to be tied down. Now Davy has ulterior motives for accepting JJ's outrageous proposal of marriage, but he only has so long to figure out what JJ doesn't want him to know.
  2. "IN THE DARK" by Marliss Melton (Navy Seals #2) (A+) Hannah Geary wants revenge. A rogue SEAL commander had her Defense Intelligence partner killed, he threw her into a Cuban prison, and he's still trafficking stolen weapons. But to catch a bad SEAL, she needs a good one. Lt. Luther Lindstrom is used to calling his own shots - in combat and in the bedroom. He just ended his engagement to his pretty-in-pink, cheating fiancee. The last thing he wants is a relationship, especially with a sexy, strong-willed woman like Hannah. Yet danger has a way of driving people together. With Hannah and Luther only a step away from one of the FBI's most wanted criminals, their attraction grows to explosive proportions.
  3. "SCENES OF PASSION" by Suzanne Brockmann (A++) Safe, steady...and unsatisfying - that pretty much summed up Maggie Stanton's life. Until a stranger stirred her imagination until she blushed, a stranger who made Maggie do the unimaginable: take a risk. Shockingly, the man who'd compelled her to forsake predictability for passion was the full-grown version of her childhood best friend. Only, this Matthew Stone wanted marriage, not a walk down memory lane. For a while, Maggie almost believed that their whirlwind wedding was the union of soul mates. Almost. Then she learned the secret Matthew was keeping.
  4. "SUDDENLY" by Barbara Delinsky (abridged Audio Cassette) (A) In the idyllic small town of Tucker, Vermont, life flows at a rhythmic pace for 39-year-old pediatrician Paige Pfeiffer. But when Mara O'Neill, Paige's best friend and medical partner, inexplicably commits suicide, Paige's comfortable world is shattered. Temporarily caring for Mara's newly adopted baby daughter while she comes to grips with her grief, Paige clings to the hope that, in time, she'll understand why Mara chose to end her life and Paige's own orderly life will return. But just when Paige is at her darkest moment, fate steps in. Noah Perrine, acting head of the private school where Paige coaches girls' athletics, enters her life and fills her days with unexpected hope, offering Paige new meanings and possibilities. But before Paige can allow herself to embrace a future she never imagined, she must let go of the past and learn to trust her newfound happiness.
  5. "THE TRIBES" by Ken Englade (Tony Hillerman's Frontier - People of the Plains #2) (A) There was dissent among the leaders of the Brule Sioux. The warrior Blizzard demanded violent action against an increasing white presence that threatened to end forever his people's way of life. Badger, his rival, urged calm. But the peace between them could not last and a violent confrontation set the rivals against each other in a fight to the death. Stationed at Fort Laramie, Second Lieutenant Benoit was sickened at the government's heartless treatment of the Indians, but he served his duty in a cruel attack on the tribe - until he was critically wounded far from his command. Rescued from death by the Brule White Crane, Benoit was brought back to camp and nursed back to life. As the attacks and counterattacks continued, both sides sensed that a showdown was not far off. But how it would start, and who would be left alive were questions that nobody could answer. 
  6. "SCARPETTA" by Patricia Cornwell (Kay Scarpetta #16) (unabridged Audio CD) (C) Leaving behind her private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta takes up an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured patient at Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric prison ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talk - and the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizzarre she has ever heard. The injuries, he says, were sustained in the course of a murder...that he did not commit. Is Bane a criminally insane stalker who has fixed on Scarpetta? Or is his paranoid tale true, and it is he who is being spied on, followed and stalked by the actual killer? The one thing Scarpetta knows for certain is that a woman has been tortured and murdered - and more violent deaths will follow. Gradually, an inexplicable and horrifying truth emerges: Whoever is committing the crimes knows where his prey is at all times. Is it a person, a government? And what is the connection among the victims? In the days that follow, Scarpetta, her forensic psychologist husband, Benton Wesley, and her niece Lucy, who has recently formed her own forensic computer investigation firm in New York, will undertake a harrowing chase through cyberspace and the all-too-real streets of the city - an odyssey that will take them at once to places they never knew and much, much to close to home.
  7. "THE RANCH" by Danielle Steel (unabridged Audio CD) (A+) They had been inseparable in college, Mary Stuart, Tanya, and Zoe. But in the years since then, the three had moved on with their lives, settled in different cities, and found successful careers and, for some of them, new roles as mothers and wives. By chance, each would find herself alone for a few weeks one summer, wrestling with both the present and the past. At a sprawling ranch in the foothills of Wyoming's Grand Tetons, the three women meet again and find courage, healing, and truth, and reach out to each other once again. Despite the honesty they once shared, now pretense among them runs high. Mary Stuart Walker, married for twenty-one years to a Manhattan lawyer, kept herself busy with volunteer work, and now masks the loneliness that consumes her life. A year has passed, and Mary Stuart still hasn't gotten over the guilt, or the fear that her husband will never forgive her for their son's death. Tanya Thomas, an award-winning singer and rock star of international celebrity and proportions, enjoys all the trappings of fame and success - a mansion in Bel Air, legions of fans, and a broken heart. All the Grammy awards in the world can't make up for the children she wanted but never had, the men who have taken advantage of her, and just gone along for the ride, and still are. Dr. Zoe Phillips has her hands full as a single mother to an adopted two-year-old, and as a doctor at an AIDS clinic in San Francisco. Predictably, as they all know, she is as liberal as she ever was, and marriage was never a dream she coveted or shared with them. Tending to her patients is a full-time job that leaves Zoe little time for herself - until unexpected news forces her to reevaluate both her future, and her current life.  But despite the changes in their lives, their friendship is still a bond they all treasure and share. For each of the women, a few weeks at the ranch will bring healing and release, as old hurts are buried, ancient secrets revealed, and love replaced or renewed.
  8. "INFORMED RISK" by Robyn Carr (Men in Uniform) (B) Firefighter Mike Cavanaugh rescued plenty of folks without getting tangled up in their personal lives. But something about gutsy, down-on-her-luck grocery clerk Christine Palmer and her two little kids got to him. Crazy as it was, he carted them home with him, and soon found that providing for them made him happier than he'd been in years. Still, Chris was bound to get back on her own two feet, and once that happened, she might not need his support anymore. Would she still want his love? Mike braved danger daily. Why was it so terrifying when his heart, not his life, was at risk?
  9. "FEEL THE HEAT" by Cindy Gerard (Black Ops #4) (A+) Bold, blonde Defense Intelligence officer B.J. Chase isn't exactly thrilled when she's summoned from personal leave to investigate an alarming national security breach - until the suspicious death of a government official blows her covert mission sky-high. Gorgeous Black Ops bad boy Raphael Mendoza always feared his family's dark history would haunt him. But he never expected it might hold the key to dismantling a rogue weapons system. Now with cool B.J. Chase posing as his hot babe fiancee, he returns to his uncle in Columbia to convince him he can be trusted with the family's dirtiest business secrets. Carrying out a deception among ruthless killers brings Rafe and B.J. too close to ignore the smoldering heat between them. Now, they must work together as the closest of partners as the countdown to international catastrophe closes in.
  10. "MACKENZIE'S LEGACY" by Linda Howard Mackenzie's Mountain (A-) (This story just didn't seem very well put together to me although I did enjoy it) Mary Elizabeth Potter is a self-appointed spinster with no illusions about love. When she meets Wolf Mackenzie, a man with a chip on his shoulder the size of Wyoming, she sets out to convince the whole town he's a man worth loving. But Wolf's not sure he - or their small town - is ready for the taming of Wolf Mackenzie. Mackenzie's Mission (A+) Night Wing - the revolutionary test plane with a top secret weapons system - is Colonel Joe "Breed" Mackenzie's number one priority. And weapons expert Caroline Evans is his number one distraction. When someone on the inside sabotages Night Wing, he cannot overlook Caroline's late hours and expertise. Now Joe has to choose between allegiance to his country and love for his prime suspect.
  11. "PAWLEYS ISLAND" by Dorothea Benton Frank (A Lowcountry Tale) (unabridged Audio CD) (A) Of the many barrier islands that pepper the coast of South Carolina's Lowcountry, Pawleys Island, the "arrogantly shabby" family playground for generations, might be the most mysterious and charming of them all. Meet Huey Valentine, the owner of Gallery Valentine, catering to interior decorators and, heaven save us, tourists. Huey resides on his family plantation on the shores of the Waccamaw River, where he cares for his mother, Miss Olivia, a wise and irresistible octogenarian. And meet Huey's great friend Abigail Thurmond, retired attorney from Columbia, who has laid claim to her family's home on Pawleys Island. Huey and Abigail are complacent in their fat and sassy lives until the stormy advent of the artist Rebecca Simms. Rebecca has been catapulted from her home, her marriage, and her children. She has escaped to Pawleys Island to hide herself from herself. But after Miss Olivia pries Rebecca's secrets from her, Huey and especially Abigail are challenged to reenter life outside the dream state their idyllic geography evokes. They will see that Rebecca has her day in court, but they never expect to provoke a national forum for discussion.
  12. "THE THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE" by Kristin Hannah (abridged Audio Cassette) (A+) Angela DeSaria Malone was always "the princess" of the family, a girl who thought she knew how her life would unfold. After her marriage collapsed under the weight of lost dreams, Angie moved back to her hometown and rejoined her loud, loving, slightly crazy family. In West End, she will find the man who once again will open her heart to love...and meet the girl who will change Angie's life. At seventeen, Lauren Ribido knows that her aspirations in life may never come to pass. But Angie sees something special in Lauren. They form a quick connection, this woman who is desperate for a daughter and the girl who has never known a mother's love. When Lauren is abandoned by her mother, Angie doesn't hesitate to offer the girl a place to stay. But nothing could have prepared Angie for the far-reaching repercussions of this act of kindness. In a dramatic turn of events, she and Lauren will be tested in a way that mothers and daughters seldom are. Together they will embark on an intensely moving, deeply emotional journey to the very heart of what it means to be a family.
  13. "WEDNESDAY'S CHILD" by Gayle Wilson (A+) It wasn't over yet...Susan Chandler's husband vanished without a trace...along with their one-year-old daughter. Now, seven years later, their car has been pulled from a river in some backwater Mississippi town, along with the body of her husband and an empty baby seat. The local sheriff is calling it an accident, but for Susan, things just don't add up. Major Jeb Bedford has one thing on his mind - to get his body back into working order and rejoin his Delta Force team ASAP. But Susan Chandler's quiet desperation echoes his own struggles. And somehow, protecting Susan and helping her discover the truth becomes more important than anything.
  14. "OUT OF THIS WORLD" - Interlude in Death by J.D. Robb (A++) Kinsman by Susan Krinard (A)  Immortality by Maggie Shayne (B) Magic Like Heat Across My Skin by Laurell K. Hamilton (A)
  15. "TWELVE TIMES BLESSED" by Jacquelyn Mitchard (unabridged Audio CD) (A-) It is True Dickinson's forty-third birthday, and her best friends have gathered on this snowy night in Cape Cod at a trendy neighborhood restaurant to celebrate. True has never felt more alone. It's been eight years since the death of her husband, leaving her to raise their son on her own. Both her son and her small business are thriving, and True's life is full. Coming up on forty-three makes True realize that there is an empty space in her life that friends and family cannot fill. She feels her youth and beauty slipping away and the possibility for romance has never seemed more remote. But everything changes the moment True and her beloved assistant, Isabelle, slide into a snow-filled ditch on the drive home. Saved by a young man she met earlier at the restaurant, True comes face to face with the opportunity to let love back into her life - that is, if she can overcome her own fears, and if these two spirits can find a way to tame each other's wild hearts and curb each other's supremely independent natures.
  16. "ETERNITY" by Jude Deveraux (A) From the moment Carrie Montgomery saw a photograph of Joshua Greene, with his handsome, sorrowful smile, she knew she was meant to be his wife. Never mind that Joshua was seeking a hardworking and practical mail-order bride to care for his farm and his children. Carrie, who grew up with seven adoring older brothers, was used to getting her way rather easily. Wed by proxy, Josh refused to be charmed by his new bride's effervescent laughter or impressed by her trappings of wealth...even if his son and daughter believed she was a fairy princess come to life. Furious, he was ready to send her packing when a near tragedy convinced him that her beauty was more than skin-deep. But Josh would not admit how much he truly needed her - until an old scandal threatened to re-emerge, and he realized that he could lose her forever.
  17. "BLIND CURVE" by Annie Solomon (A++) Bullets are whizzing around him, but he can't shoot back. In the middle of a weapons bust, undercover cop Danny Sinofsky suddenly goes blind. Now this man who has always looked out for himself can't cross a room without the help of his mobility instructor, Martha Crowe. Furious and frustrated, he'd almost rather die than live this way - and someone is more than willing to grant him his wish. Hiding her emotions beneath a calm, practical facade, Martha is sure Danny doesn't remember her, the plain girl from his high school who had a crush on him. When she witnesses an attack on his life, the two are thrown into a safe house, and this man without sight starts to see deep inside the soul of a courageous, passionate woman. Their very lives will depend on their fragile connection - and their ability to move as one, combining Danny's razor-sharp instincts with Martha's eyes. Because an enemy is stalking them both, moving in closer and closer for the kill.
  18. "DIE IN PLAIN SIGHT" by Elizabeth Lowell (Rarities Unlimited #3) (abridged Audio Cassette) (A) When Lacey Quinn inherits the striking landscapes painted by her late grandfather, she sets out to prove they are as good as anything hanging in museums with California Impressionists today. But the paintings in her possession are more than the works of a talented master, they are anguished voices from the grave...crying murder. Lacey researches her grandfather's past and is rocked by a strange series of violent events. Someone wants to steal her inheritance, and reduce the paintings to unrecognizable ashes in a suspicious blaze. Ian Lapstrake, a security specialist working for the appraisal house Rarities Unlimited, has taken an interest in Lacey's inheritance...and in her. Their search for answers leads them down a road paved with lies, blood, and a shocking family history. Clues to a series of unexplained murders may be hidden in the brush strokes - clues that have now marked Lacey and Ian for death.
  19. "LAKESHORE CHRISTMAS" by Susan Wiggs (Lakeshore Chronicles #6) (A) Maureen Davenport, the prim librarian, is finally getting her chance to direct Avalon's annual holiday pageant, and she's determined to make it truly spectacular. But it might just require one of those Christmas miracles she's always read about. The problem is her co-director is recovering former child star Eddie Haven, a long-haired, tattooed lump of coal in Maureen's pageant stocking. Eddie can't stand Christmas, but a court order from a judge has landed him right in the middle of the merrymaking. Maureen and Eddie spat over every detail of the pageant, from casting troubled kids to Eddie's original - and distinctly untraditional music. Is he trying to sabotage the performance to spite her? Or is she trying too hard to fit the show into her storybook-perfect notion of Christmas? And how is it possible that they're falling in love?
  20. "SUNDAYS AT TIFFANY'S" by James Patterson & Gabrielle Charbonnet (unabridged Audio CD) (A+) Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, a powerful Broadway producer, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany's. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He's perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can't stay forever, though. On Jane's ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she'll forget him soon. He was there to help her until she was old enough to manage on her own, and now there are other children who need his help. Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets a man: a handsome, comforting, funny man. He's perfect!
  21. "ANOTHER MAN'S SON" by Katherine Stone (A+) If Sam Collier's life has taught him anything, it's that promises can't be trusted...especially promises from the people who were supposed to love him. People like his father...Ian Collier abandoned him when he was four, and Sam was a drifter for years afterward. He's finally begun to make peace with his past - and that's when he learns the shocking news, Ian Collier is dead. He returns to Ian's house in Seattle and finds a woman named Kathleen Cahill living there, the woman Ian had planned to marry. Within weeks Sam has fallen in love with her. Deeply in love - for the first time in his life. And then Kathleen tells him she's pregnant. With his baby? Or Ian Collier's? Now, thanks to Kathleen, he learns a secret about his father. A secret and a truth. And now - for the first time in his life - Sam Collier understands what fatherhood really means.
  22. "UNHALLOWED GROUND" by Heather Graham (Harrison Investigations) (A) When Sarah McKinley is finally able to buy and restore the historic Florida mansion that she has always loved she dismisses the horror stories of past residents vanishing and a long-dead housekeeper who practiced black magic. Then, in the midst of renovations, she makes a grim discovery. Hidden within the walls of Sarah's dream house are the remains of dozens of bodies - some dating back over a century. The door to the past is blown wide open when Caleb Anderson, a private investigator, shows up at the mansion. He believes several current missing persons cases are linked to the house and its dark past. Working together to find the connection and stop a contemporary killer. Sarah and Caleb are compelled to research the history of the haunted house, growing closer to each other even as the solution to the murders eludes them. But there is one who knows the truth, a spirit who follows every move they make. Soon Caleb begins to fear that if he can't stay a step ahead, he could lose Sarah to a killer with an ability to transcend time in a quest for blood and sacrifice.
  23. "TRUTH OR DARE" by Jayne Ann Krentz (Whispering Springs #2) (abridged Audio CD) (A)  Upscale interior designer Zoe Luce has found peace and contentment in Whispering Springs, Arizona. She has a thriving business, and she's settling into newlywed life with private investigator Ethan Truax. The threat that brought Zoe and Ethan together is finally over, ancient history, or so Zoe believes. Very few people know of her uncanny ability to sense the dark secrets hidden within the walls of a house, and she wants to keep it that way, even from Ethan. But someone is stalking Zoe - someone who knows all about her, and who shadows her every move. Is it the same person who is threatening her closest friend, Arcadia Ames, the only other person in Whispering Springs who knows the truth about Zoe? Or are Zoe and Arcadia getting tangled in a web spun by someone more dangerous than they could ever have imagined? As a private investigator, Ethan is paid to find the truth, yet he has secrets of his own that are better left buried. He can't let the threats to Zoe go unchallenged, although the fear that the truth may be a bigger burden than their still fragile relationship can handle.
  24. "WINDFALL" by Nora Roberts - Impulse (A) For once in her life, Rebecca Malone decided to follow her impulses, jettison the familiar and head to Greece to find adventure! So when a sexy stranger began to romance her, she couldn't resist playing the sophisticated, well-traveled woman. However, falling in love with Stephen Nickodemus was not part of the plan! How on earth could she explain to the man she'd given her heart to that she wasn't the woman he'd believed her to be? And then convince him that she was still the woman he loved. Temptation (A) Socialite Eden Carlborough didn't expect running a girls' camp to be easy, but she never thought she'd literally be run up an apple tree by the little monsters. She was equally surprised to come crashing down into the capable arms of orchard owner Chase Elliot. While her handsome neighbor's overbearing ways were highly irritating, his touch ignited feeling she'd never known. She never imagined she'd be so very tempted!
  25. "SHEM CREEK" by Dorothea Benton Frank (A Lowcountry Tale) (abridged Audio Cassette) (A) Meet Linda Breland, single parent of two teenage daughters. Linda's personal life? Well, between the married men, the cold New Jersey winters, her pinched wallet and her ex-husband who marries a beautiful, successful woman ten years younger than she is - let's just say, Linda has seen enough to fill a thousand pages. As the story opens, she is barreling down Interstate 95, bound for Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, the land of her ancestors Welcomed by the generous heart of her advise-dispensing sister, Mimi, Linda and her daughters slowly begin to find their way and discover a sweeter rhythm of life. And then there's Brad Jackson, a former investment banker of Atlanta, Georgia who hires her to run his restaurant on Shem Creek. Like everyone else, Brad's got a story of his own - namely an almost ex-wife, Loretta who is the kind of gal who gives women a bad name.
  26. "MEMORY OF LOVE" by Bertrice Small (A+) Spirited iron-willed Rhonwyn is the bastard child of the Prince of Wales, raised more boy than girl, able to ride and fight with the best. Against her wishes, she is married off to an English lord, Edward de Beaumont, who is stunned to discover that his lovely gilt-haired bride is a fiery wildcat with a mind of her own. Slowly, he wins her trust and her heart, and she accompanies him on the Crusades to North Africa. But when Edward falls ill, Rhonwyn boldly leads his troops, only to become a captive of the sensual Emir of Cinnebar, a man who will teach her the ways of erotic love - passions that will be put to the test when she returns to England to battle once more...this time for the man who rules her heart.

I have 71 books on my TBR pile.  It's down from 110 so I guess that's a good thing! :)

I just found "Pamela Morsi" as a new author.  I really, really like her novels.  What a breath of fresh air!

May reading list.......not necessarily in this order!!   I didn't have as much time to read in April as I have had in previous months, too much going on. So many of these are carry-overs from April and I'll be adding more as time allows!!

Hey, Good Looking by Fern Michaels

Lakeside Cottage by Susan Wiggs

The Virgin Blue by Tracy Chevalier

Eclipse Bay by Jayne Ann Krentz  -- This is the first novel I've read by Krentz and I enjoyed it and her writing style. Looking forward to reading the other 2 in the series.

Close Enough to Kill by Beverly Barton

Blindsighted by Karen Slaughter    A fantastic first novel bySlaughter.  A real page-turner, gripping,chilling....don't start this book if you've got something important that has to be done!!

Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson  A sweet book about finding love. Not the typical James Patterson book, more in line with Suzanne's Diary to Nicholas

Under the Knife by Tess Gerritsen

Low Country by Anne Rivers Siddons

Waking  up in Charleston by Sherryl Woods ---A sweet book about relationships, those gone bad and needing to be repaired and those developing. Sherryl Woods has a unique gift for character development, the reader really gets to know her characters. 

Dead Wrong by Mariah Stewart

A Great Deliverance by Elizabeth George  All I can say about the book is ... TERRRIFIC!!  Tightly woven plot with several sub-plots that all tie together in the end. You won't want to put this book down once you start it.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Black Friday by James Patterson

Invasion of Privacy by Perri O'Shaughnessy

Unspoken by Lisa Jackson

Sunny Chandler's Return by Sandra Brown --- Vintage Sandra Brown, not much plot, over-the-top sex. I skipped a lot of pages!!

Murdering Mr. Monti by Judith Viorst

Sullivan's Island by Dorothea Benton Frank

Plum Island by Nelson DeMille

Total Control by David Baldacci --- This one took me awhile to finish, not because it's not a good book, but the plot is so involved at times I had to put it down just to get my mind clear on what was happening. The last few chapters totally blew me away, I stayed awake until 2:30 this morning finishing it. A 5 star book!!!!

Hello Darkness by Sandra Brown

Well-Schooled in Murder by Elizabeth George

Let Me Call You Sweetheart by Mary Higgins Clark  

Bare Bones by Kathy Reichs --- As always Reichs' book is a page-turner.  I enjoy all the side issues she brings in to enhance the plot. I learn a lot reading her books!!

This Year Will Be Different by Maeve Binchy -- up next

That Summer by Joan Wolf

The Second Silence  by Eileen Goudge -- A really enjoyable book!! I look forward to reading more by this author, got some more in my TBR pile!!

Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben --- Really good book, I read it in one day!! I love the way Harlan Coben writes....Myron Bolitar's sense of humor adds to the story and makes him seem like someone you'd like to know. The ending was a surprise, I never guessed "who-done-it."

The Edge by Dick Francis

Silent Waters by Jan Coffey

The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve ----- A very good book, several twists in the plot that keep you turning the pages to see what's going to develop. My first Anita Shreve book and I'll definitely be reading more of hers.

The Dead Room by Heather Graham

Killer Pancake by Diane Mott Davidson -- reading now

Home Again by Kristin Hannah

New authors this month....Eileen Goudge,    Anita Shreve,    Jan Coffey,    Khaled Hossini,   Beverly Barton,  Jayne Ann Krentz,  Joan Wolf,    Judith Viorst,    Karin Slaughter

May 2010

Ghost Hunter - Jayne Castle - Harmony series

 SIlver Master - Jayne Castle - harmony series

Dark Light - Jayne Castle - harmony series

 Obsidian Prey - Jayne Castle - harmony series

I see books in these lists I've read in the past couple of months! Nancy, I loved Sealed With a Ring! I liked all 3 of her books but that was a nice one. I also read In the Dark a few months ago. Someone  mentioned Count of Monte Cristo..I plan on reading that someday as well!

my tbr is too huge to list but I have a bunch of library books including Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick's Arcane Society, How Not to Live Abroad which I've heard is funny, and some christian romance including The Sheriff's Surrender, Love Finds You in Snowball Arkansas, a sushi series by Camy Tang and some assorted non-fiction. I also need to read a book by Anne Stuart to complete a c hallenge I'm doing with another group - she's the required author for one of the challenges. I'm leaning towards One More Valentine since someone there suggested the unique storyline. I tend to semi-plan what I'll read then something catches my eye and I'll switch over..oh also picked up Summer on Blossom Street at the library - Debbie Macomber's new book in that series.

The Sheriff's Surrender - Susan Page Davis

 Sushi for One? - Camy Tang

Only Uni - Camy Tang

now reading: Single Sashimi - Camy Tang

I finished The Last Child by John Hart last night. Absolutely terrific!  I've just started R.J. Ellory's The Anniversay Man and it has already sucked me  right into the story.

My hat is off to Nancy W.  Wow.  Anyway, I just finished "The Zookeeper's Wife", a memoir.  A great book, although my reading time is limited I finished it in 2 nights.  Now on to "The Help".

I just ordered "The Last Child" by John Hart, plus another of his books. Just what I needed, some more books to add to my TBR

1.  Hamilton County - MacKinley & Tim Kantor : This was interesting, though not really my kind of thing.  Basically a kind of story poem where all the Hamilton Counties across the country are one, with many photos as inspiration for the writing. 

2.  Never Die Easy - Walter Payton : Ok, as a disclaimer of bias, I am a lifelong Bears fan.  So I remember all too well when Walter WAS the team, as well as the glorious Super Bowl year.  All bias aside, though, I think anyone who wants to be a pro athlete needs to read this book.  I think anyone who wants to be at the top of their game in life and in whatever field of work needs to read this as well.  It's about how you can be the best by sheer force of will, basically.  Sweetness was a great person, not just a great ballplayer.  That's why he was the best ever.

3.  The Pilot's Wife - Anita Shreve : A great story, very well-told.

4.  Good Times, Bad Boys - Melanie Murray : Strangely disappointing.  It has a fairly original plot, and a lot of musical references, so I should love it.  For some reason, though, I never warmed up to either the main character or the main love interest.

5.  Almost, Maine - John Cariani : I read this one for work, but it's actually one of the more interesting scripts I've read.  I'm not always a fan of being quirky for its own sake, but this seems to work.  It'll be interesting to see it staged.
