Latest Books

Love Nicholas Sparks! This one is from 2003; I guess I'm a little behind! All of his stuff is great and this one I'm really enjoying. I love this story, even the dog plays a big role in this one. But I'm just halfway through!

This was an amazing story. It's a memoir written by Jeanette Walls. The circumstances that surrounded her as a child are the types of things that one would think can never be overcome. Her parents and siblings endure such hardships, but what makes it so perplexing is that it's usually by her parents' own choice. After a while, the children began to see a pattern of destruction and each tried to control their world in different ways. Her writing is addiciting and I couldn't wait to see how it all turned out.

This was an easy and entertaining read. Stephanie Plum is a gutsy gal who's desperatley broke and takes on a job as a bounty hunter. She gets in way over her head pretty quickly but manages to bring in some bad guys and make some money. Things do get pretty ugly, even life threatening, but since there are so many more books to go in the series, she survives, of course. This little tale was engrossing enough to make me look forward to the next one.!

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never questioned… until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister - and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable… a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life… even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less?

In Cat & Mouse, things get too close to home. Two killers, one operating in America — one in Europe — believe Alex Cross is the only worthy opponent in the deadly game each has planned. And Alex must contend with something he hasn't known since the loss of his wife: he's falling deeply in love, and this romance will make him, and her, all the more vulnerable....

Harlan Coben's latest: The Woods. I was on a waiting list 35 people long at the library, so I just bought it (for Mother's Day!) Great stuff.
