Books Galore!

On this page, I'll keep a list of the books that I've read and any opinions I feel like sharing.  

What Color is Your Parachute?

Demon Seed by Dean Koontz
-terrifying on so many levels.  I still have nightmares.

The House of Thunder by Dean Koontz
-if you like conspiracies, this has a great twist in it!

Such a Pretty Face by Cathy Lamb
-absolutely beautiful 

If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahearn
-I love Ahearn's work.  All of the ones I've read so far are all amazing and touching.  This one is not a disappointment!  See the titles below for others by her:
P.S. I Love You (tearjerker...and much better than the movie)
There's No Place Like Here (this title is tied to be my favorite of Ahearn's with If You Could See Me Now)
Thanks for the Memories (not my favorite.  I don't feel like it moved as well as her others but still an enjoyable read).

The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
-eye opener into the world of agriculture in the US; blergh...hate HFCS and all of the other new nick-names for basic crap

The Witch of Cologne by Tobsha Learner
-this is a book for adults and only those with a good attention span; it's complicated, romantic, tragic and gut wrenchingly graphic at points.  It is so delicious it hurts.

The Nameless Day by Sarah Douglass 
-this is the first in her Crucible Series and I loved every second of it.  If you are looking for a religious fiction (think real fiction and not inspirational fiction), this is yummy.

Eat, Pray, Love by Elisabeth Gilbert
-this has been all over the press.  I loved it.  You might, you might not.

The Girl's Guide to Absolutely Everything
-if you know a female between the ages of 18 and 93, this is a great reference for a woman to have around.  I use it on a regular basis as a reference to life.  It's not a philosophical book.  It's straightforward and funny, covering topics like career, friendships, cars (thank you!), money, etc.  

Swimsuit by James Patterson
-this was the first of Patterson's books that I have read and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.  The book was left a bit open ended which I admit can be a good thing although I'm not sure that is the case in this instance.

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
-in any discussion about books, I always mention this one as a favorite.  So much so that I've read it about 4 times and I will no longer lend my copy out because I have had to buy 3 replacement copies because people refuse to return it!
