May 19 & 27 Library Visits

I forgot to post the list of books I checked out on May 19:

The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer
Astrid & Veronika by Linda Olsson
Parenting is Heart Work by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller
An Absolute Gentleman by R.M. Kinder
The Ghost Writer by John Harwood
Skin by Ted Dekker
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell

I finished The Lost Boy but none of the others yet.

Then yesterday I got 3 more books! LOL First of all Lindsey was out of books and her videos were due back yesterday, so I had to make a library trip. I had these 3 books on hold and they were in so I had to pick them up too:

The Secret Between Us by Barbara Delinsky
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I'm currently reading Astrid & Veronika and, well, um, I don't care for it that much! Once again I read great reviews but it's not living up to what I expected. It started out okay, but by about halfway through I was wanting to stop reading it. But I really want to find out more about their "secrets" so I'll finish it. But I'm not loving it or even liking it all that much.

Happy reading!

I read "The Secret Between Us" recently and liked it. It was fairly engrossing to me (what I term "women's fiction), and I did enjoy it.

I haven't read any Ted Dekker yet, but hope to sooner or later. I hope his stuff isn't too graphic, I am fairly faint of heart :)

Happy Reading!

Oh, Mudbound looks like a good one! Enjoy Twilight - it's a great read! By the way, I'm not sure if I've ever stopped by your book blog, but will be back again! I haven't updated my adoption blog in ages, but continue to blog over at my book blog. Stop by if you have a chance!
