I never did get a chance to read yesterday. Magpie was being a real pill yesterday. She is big enough to sneak onto the couch and then she wants to crawl all over me licking and nipping. She is also fascinated by my hair. It doesn't matter if it is tied up or left down. She loves to get behind me when I'm on the computer and grab my hair. Dog induced whip lash! LOL!!

PBS, I've recently discovered a great author of historicals: Sharon Kay Penman. She sticks to "real" history but fictionalizes to give you the human side of it - often quite romantic (the 12th century Welsh prince who forgave his wife her infidelity - he *did* hang the lover, though - even though he had the right to kill her too...).

I also like Diana Gabaldon, though the time-travel bit kind of annoys me because it's so unneccesary. Like it's not ok to write historical romances without "justifying" it as borderline sci-fi!

"The Perfect Husband" by Linda Howard.

I just finished it, I started it on a Thursday evening and finished it on Saturday afternoon!

From the first pages, I was hooked.

The story is about a woman who's ex has been abusive and she has helped to put him in jail for murdering 10 women!

He breaks out of jail, and she goes to a mercenary for help learning to defend herself so that she can take a stand and not keep hiding and running.

With all the twists and turns, the motive for the murders, the things that happen...oh my gosh!!

It's just GOOD!!!

Jane Austen!

Maybe it's cliche, but books like Pride & Prejudice and Persuasion just get me every time. I love the timelessness of her tales and the writing style, it's so old fashioned (well, I suppose that at the time, it was the norm...) and beautiful.

Jodie Picoult
Lesley Pearse
Ruth Hamilton
... and anything else that catches my eye [I work for libraries!]

I don't really have a favourite book. But anything that's human interest with a psychological interest factor. Nineteen Minutes by Jodie Picoult, because it resonates so much with my past experience of being bullied, and all the ins and outs and ethics and effects.
I'll try and explain more later, as I really need to get to grips with talking about my own preferences more!

Welcome Stellata!!

I am an AVID book reader. I have picked up many of Jodie Picoult's books, but have yet to read one of them. I think I'm afraid really....

I just finished Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella, that was an easy read, and had some funny parts and the ending was just right!

I'm debating whether to start the next Diana Gabaldon book in the Outlander series. I'm on book 6.... and I get so involved in them, and they take me so long to read, I'm holding out for christmas break I think!! LOL!

Anyway... WELCOME! and I look forward to many many chats!
