Bloggy Book Exchange

I signed up with my friend Angie over at 7 Clown Circus to participate in a book exchange. Now, I don't know off hand if my book exchange partner comes here, but I'm going to risk spoiling the surprise by blogging about some of my recent reads. Books that will be on their way to her once I finish the last one.

7th Heaven by James Patterson. I quite liked it. It's a nice easy read. But to be honest, when I went to write this little blurb, I had to go back to the book to see what it was about. I just opened it to a few random pages knowing that a couple of words would transport me right back into the book. Hmmm. Turns out I was wrong. It took a few minutes to remember what it was about. So, a good read, but obviously not very memorable, seeing as I just finished it.

You've Been Warned, another by James Patterson. It is also a pretty quick read. It does keep you guessing through the whole thing. It's a little off at times. I would consider this a pretty good beach read.

Loves Music, Loves To Dance, by Mary Higgins Clark: Another murder mystery. It is also pretty good. I don't quite remember how they figure out the whodunit part, but I probably already figured it out so didn't think I needed to pay attention. I'm really bad about devouring the first 99% of the book and then just skimming the ending, because by then I already know what I'm reading next and am anxious to get started.

The Breakdown Lane by Jacquelyn Mitchard: This one is pretty good also. It is a book that makes you appreciate your own screwed up, untrainable husband. lol Just kidding, honey!! You're not all that screwed up.

Remember Me by Mary Higgins Clark: A truly messed up book. It is good, and no major surprise at the end. Hmmmm.... Perhaps I won't send this one after all.

Play Dirty by Sandra Brown: I quite liked this one. You definitely fall for the big ol' dumb jock in this page turner.

If I don't send Remember Me, then that will leave one more to send. My coveted book. My all time favorite book on the entire planet. It is called "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers. Of all my books since my Sweet Dreams collection was ransacked by my tween friends, I have never kept a book so close to me before. I would lend it out, but always knew where it was and remembered to ask for it back. I don't know that I can part with it, but may have to try. If not, then I will send her the title and recommend that she find a copy of her own to love and cherish. Is that wrong? lol

The book I am reading right now is Blind Fear by Lynn Abercrombie. It is another go-get-em murder mystery. I am about half way through this book and then will send it. I am enjoying it so far!

So, that's it. If my partner, Jenna, at Life on the Circle T Ranch reads this she will know what I'm sending. And she will probably be disappointed when she discovers no copy of Redeeming Love in her package. Otherwise, if she hasn't stopped by, ssshhhh... She need never know that I'm holding out!!

One final note, if you have lent me any of these books (Mom, Jody) please know that they are moving on to another happy home. Tee hee....

Redeeming love should be required reading for brides :)

Redeeming Love? Was that the one that took place on that Mediterranean island? The beautiful dark-haired bride? I loved that book. And 7th Heaven? Dad will be delighted to know that you're sharing my Valentine's Day gift from him. :-D As am I. Anytime you want to share books, come on over and raid my bulging book shelves. It's time again for a cull.

Love you!

I just finished 7th Heaven. I liked it, pretty much. I am a much bigger fan of Harlan Coben. His mysteries are killer. But this one was good.
