I may have mentioned maybe once or twice how much I love Orson Scott Card.  This is another fantastic book.  I have been taking classes and not reading, but this is the last book I read.  The next one I want to read is:

If you want to read more from Orson Scott Card check out his website:  It gives a brief synopsis of all his books and links to websites where you can buy them.  I really really love Orson Scott Card.  I probably should mention that I love Orson Scott Card.  I pretty much think that you can't go wrong when you pick up one of his books!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

A friend of ours gave Brian the first book in the Percy Jackson series for his birthday one year. We finished the series a few years ago, and we loved it. I've always liked Greek mythology, and this put a fun, modern twist on the old stories. Don't expect anything terribly profound; they were written middle school kids. They're great for reading out loud on car trips--they made getting stuck in rush hour traffic during our house hunting days bearable. Read them to your eight and nine-year-olds too.

I stole the picture from This book is in a series, but I haven't read the others yet. I will soon. It was EXCELLENT. Mystery, suspense, LOVE STORY, THRILLER. A must read. I give it two thumbs (and a few toes too) Up!

the mother in me

I just finished reading this book.  It is amazing.  I loved it so much.  I am not yet a mother, but these stories spoke to my heart.  I think every woman should read this book.

Mistborn Trilogy

Brian and I just finished The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. We stayed up really late many nights reading together. It made roadtrips seem less daunting. The first book is The Final Empire, the second is The Well of Ascension, and the third book is The Hero of Ages. All are well written. There is fighting, torture, chases, escapes, true love, and miracles, but it isn't as funny as The Princess Bride.

On that author note....

I love, love, love Anita Stansfield. Her books always catch me in some way. They are always a good cry. Her most recent series has felt the most like my life in some ways, of course I am not independently wealthy like most of her characters, but There is so much in the Dicken's Inn series I love including the parts about Dicken's, one of my favorite authors. The first books is entitled from a line from my favorite Dicken's novel, A Tale of Two Cities... The Best of Times.

Anyway Love her books, have loved collecting them. I have most of them by now, only a few more to go.

We have been listening to them on audiobook at work. This was after Twilight series and an attempt at a James Patterson which was far more than we wanted to hear together in that room at the court house.

Anyway if you haven't read her you should check her out!
