Happy New Year.

Editado: Ene 15, 2015, 9:47pm

Finally, I finished my first book yesterday

Ene 12, 2015, 5:37pm

Ene 15, 2015, 9:49pm

2. First They Killed My Father by Loung Ung

This was not as good as I hoped, but I learned about what was going on in Cambodia in the mid to late 70's, which was interesting.

Ene 23, 2015, 11:04am

3. The Ballad of Tom Dooley by Sharyn McCrumb

This was not as good as her other Ballad novels. It was interesting because it is based on a true story.

Ene 28, 2015, 7:39pm

4. The Survivor's Club by Lisa Gardner

I always enjoy Lisa Gardner.

Feb 3, 2015, 7:38pm

5. Vanish in Plain Sight by Marta Perry

Feb 9, 2015, 6:43pm

6. Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

I read Kindred, not my usual type of book, but the setting for me made it very interesting. I really enjoyed this.

Feb 10, 2015, 9:11pm

>11 dara85: How did you like the Marta Perry book? I know I've had one or two of hers on a wish list, but I haven't tried any of them.

Feb 13, 2015, 8:08pm

Marta Perry is a lot better writer than I expected. This book is the second in the series. I have enjoyed both books.

Feb 13, 2015, 8:09pm

7. Thousand Words by Jennifer Brown

This is a very realistic situation.

Feb 19, 2015, 8:13pm

>14 dara85: Thanks for the info. I'm sure I'll eventually get to them.

Feb 22, 2015, 5:29pm

8. The Undertaker's Daughter by Kate Mayfield

I don't know what I expected out of this book. It was not as good as I hoped.

Feb 22, 2015, 5:32pm

9. The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon

I enjoyed this book. It was what I would call a little offbeat. Not the usual type of book I read. It was creepy. I do plan on trying more of this author.

Mar 3, 2015, 11:10am

10. Gray Mountain by John Grisham

I enjoyed this book. Not as many twists and turns as in many Grisham books. One big bombshell. Interesting story.

Mar 10, 2015, 9:52pm

11. Sarah's Quilt by Nancy E. Turner

This was not as good as the first book, But it was still enjoyable.

Mar 21, 2015, 1:28pm

12. Big Little Lies by Laine Moriarty

I know a lot of people loved this. I didn't. (See my review)

It did keep my interest.

Mar 28, 2015, 10:05pm

13. Brass Ring by Diane Chamberlain

This was pretty good. Although this was not the best book I have read of Diane Chamberlain's.

Mar 28, 2015, 10:07pm

14. The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen

I enjoyed this and the little magical aspects.

Abr 16, 2015, 9:28am

15. First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen

This was not as good as Garden Spells. I enjoyed revisiting some of the characters.

Abr 16, 2015, 9:30am

16. Make Room for Danny by Danny Thomas

I have had this book on my shelves for 15 years. It was an easy read. I remember the TV show. I had no idea he was so successful.

Editado: Abr 23, 2015, 8:55am

18. Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

This was a hard book to read. (see my review)

Mayo 16, 2015, 12:16pm

19. Mudbound by Hillary Jordan

I loved this book. First 5 star book for this year. The characters were well drawn.

Mayo 16, 2015, 12:17pm

20. The Man with the Candy by Jack Olsen

Not Jack Olsen's most riveting book.

Mayo 16, 2015, 12:20pm

21. Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen

I really enjoyed this addition to the Rizzoli/ Isles series. Great winter story.

Mayo 16, 2015, 12:23pm

22. End of Everything by Megan Abbott

This book was dark, like her book Dare Me. She is an excellent writer, I just have trouble getting into her stories. I think I will pass on her next book.

Mayo 16, 2015, 12:31pm

23. Deep as the Marrow by F. Paul Wilson

I really enjoyed this. It had an interesting premise, written so well as to be believable. F. Paul Wilson is one of the lesser known authors on LibraryThing. If you enjoy mysteries, I suggest you give him a try. I also read his book Select which was good also.

Mayo 23, 2015, 7:30pm

24. One Breath Away by Heather Gudenkauf

This was not as good as her first two books, but I had to keep reading to see what happened. I liked it.

Mayo 23, 2015, 7:33pm

25. Touching the Void by Joe Simpson

I probably would have enjoyed this more if I knew more about mountain climbing. Into Thin Air is a better book.

Jun 20, 2015, 1:14pm

26. Fountain Filled with Blood by Julia Spencer Fleming The tension between Russ and Clare continues. A good addition to the series.

Jun 20, 2015, 1:17pm

27. Gone Missing by Linda Castillo I love this series. I have rated every book highly. It is like visiting old friends. Her books never take long to draw you in.

Jun 20, 2015, 1:19pm

28. Alicia: My Story by Alicia Appleman-Jurman The things Alicia had to endure at the age of 12. She is the only member of her family who survived.

Jun 20, 2015, 1:21pm

29. Stripped by Brian Freeman I believe I liked his first book better. I look forward to the next book where he is back in Duluth. He is a rather unconventional cop.

Jun 20, 2015, 1:24pm

30. Hate List by Jennifer Brown I liked this book better than the first book of hers that I read. This book is written from a different point of view from some other books I have read about school shootings. The ending almost had me in tears.

Editado: Ago 17, 2015, 7:54pm

31. Pines by Blake Crouch I knew I was going to read this book when the TV show started. I usually like to watch the show and then read the book. I am glad I read the book after the TV show. It was a creepy read. (see review)

Ago 17, 2015, 7:42pm

32. The Bone Tree by Greg Iles This was not as good as Natchez Burning, still a good read.

Ago 17, 2015, 7:43pm

33. 14th Deadly Sin by James Patterson

This was not the best in the series.

Editado: Ago 17, 2015, 7:54pm

34. What Alice Forgot by Laine Moriarty

This was the second book I read by Moriarty. I was disappointed in both books. The premise was good. I won't be reading any more books by her. (See review)

Ago 17, 2015, 7:47pm

35. Death List by Paul Johnston

I enjoyed the book and the ending was unexpected.

Ago 17, 2015, 7:49pm

36. Nightingale by Kristin Hannah Another hit by Hannah. I loved this book. The ending was not what I expected. Excellent book.

Editado: Ago 17, 2015, 7:55pm

37. Astronaut's Wives Club by Lily Koppel This was a real interesting book. I enjoyed it.

Ago 17, 2015, 7:57pm

38. Ana's Story by Jenna Bush

I have had this book on my to read list for a long time. I even had it on a To Be Read list last year and did not read it. I think this is an important book for teens to read.

Editado: Ago 17, 2015, 7:59pm

39. Victim Six by Gregg Olsen

I thought this was a good book, not for the faint of heart or those who don't like explicit sex.

Ago 17, 2015, 8:01pm

40. Working Stiff by Judy Melinek

This was very well written and easy to understand. It was very heart wrenching reading about September 11.

Editado: Oct 19, 2015, 4:03pm

41. The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier

This was okay. It had been on my to read list for a long, long time.

Oct 19, 2015, 4:05pm

42. Rage by Jonathan Kellerman

This was not his best book. Everything was not tied up neatly at the end, there were several loose ends.

Oct 19, 2015, 4:06pm

43. The Sunflower by Richard Paul Evans

This was really good. I had not read Richard Paul evens for a long time. I enjoyed the story.

Oct 19, 2015, 4:09pm

44. Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain

This was not my favorite by this author. I think it was good she pointed out how sterilization was done on the poor in this book.

Oct 19, 2015, 4:11pm

45. Sick Girl by Amy Silverstein

Whine, whine, whine. (See my Review)

Oct 19, 2015, 4:12pm

46. Low Pressure by Sandra Brown

Really enjoyed this book. Sandra Brown never fails to tell a good story.

Oct 19, 2015, 5:17pm

47. 13 Hours: The Inside Account of what Really Happened in Benghazi by Mitchell Zuckoff

Very well-written and researched. This is not political, it is just intended to tell what happened.

Oct 19, 2015, 5:18pm

48. All Fall Down by Erica Spindler

Another good book by Spindler.

Oct 19, 2015, 5:20pm

49. Blind Love by Peter Meyer

This was written before the trials. The information about the crime is well done.

Oct 19, 2015, 5:21pm

50. Squint by Jose P. Ramirez

This was interesting.

Oct 19, 2015, 5:26pm

51. Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline

A lot of what happened was coincidental, but it is fiction. I enjoyed the story of the evil twin and the good twin.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:14pm

52. In a Perfect World by Laura Kasischke

This is not the usual type of book I read. I did enjoy it. The writing was wonderful. I hope to read more from this author.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:16pm

53. X by Sue Grafton

This is was not as good as her last few books.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:20pm

54. Lost Angel by Mike Doogan

This was a good mystery. It was set in a commune in Alaska, so it was different.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:23pm

55. Sleep Tight by Anne Frasier

This was another good mystery by Anne Frasier.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:28pm

56. Benediction by Kent Haruf

My third book by Haruf. I loved it, as I did the first one I read. With an old man dying you'd think this would be a downer. It was not. (See my review)

Ene 17, 2016, 10:32pm

57. Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

If I had not just read Benediction I might have rated this higher. It was a mystery and a good coming of age story.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:37pm

58. The Year that Follows by Scott Lasser

This is a strange book. I wanted to read this, I chose this this year because I was doing an A-Z title challenge. This was my Y.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:38pm

59. Blue Heaven by C. J. Box

I have loved every book I have read by C. J. Box. This was no exception, 5 stars.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:41pm

60. The Accident by Linwood Barclay

This was a good story about a bunch of people in a corrupt town. People kept dying.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:45pm

61. Jackie after Jack by Christopher Andersen

I always enjoy Andersen's books. This was very eye-opening. Jackie coming from money never paid for anything when she invited people to the Greek island. Jackie was such a b----h at times.

Editado: Ene 17, 2016, 10:59pm

62. The Angels of Morgan Hill by Donna VanLiere

This was such a sweet story that took place in the 40's in Tennessee. Jane' s best friend was Henry who ran the General Store. The father of the family was a man who beat his wife and he dies in the first few pages. Jane wishes for a "real" family. This reminded me of Cup of Dust because both books take place in poor area and in the past.

Ene 17, 2016, 10:58pm

63. Cup of Dust by Susie Finkbeiner

I enjoyed this book which was part historical fiction and part mystery. This book was more sinister or violent than Angels of Morgan Hill. (See my review)

Ene 17, 2016, 11:04pm

64. Zero Day by David Baldacci

This was a great story. It is the first of a series. I enjoyed the tension between John and Samatha.
