Title: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bestofour on Jan 19, 2016, 12:37:01 PM
I think we need a new one. 

Have you guys read Burial Rites?  It's her first novel, based on truth, and very good.

i have not.  i read a book recently that was making the rounds, and was going to post about it, because i couldn't get into the first chapter, but i forgot, now i don't know the name of it.  i've been doing a lot of light reading, things along the lines of debbie macomber's cedar cove series...

have you read the book "i work at a public library" ?  it's really good. full of funny stories and i recognized about half of the characters in the book.

and on a side note, do any of you use any of the "free e-book" services?

Are you talking about on Amazon?  I've got a kindle full of free ebooks from Amazon that I haven't read.  A lot of Poirot.

there are "services" like bookbub that you go on, list your genres and authors, and they send you daily lists of the free books that are on amazon, google, barnes & noble, apple, and one called "kobo" i don't know what that is.

I'll see if my library  has the "i work at a public library" book.  Sounds good.

I'm reading Kay Hooper's Bishop/SCU series.  Fascinating paranormal stuff.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on Jun 26, 2016, 09:25:39 PM
I didn't like Kay Hooper's as much as I liked Heather Graham's "Krewe of Hunters" series. there are some facinating paranormal stuff out there though.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: duh on Jun 28, 2016, 07:04:41 AM
I'll have to look into that.  Kay Hooper is one of those writers where some is good and some isn't so much. 
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on Jun 28, 2016, 09:34:15 PM
all writers have that.  i just don't care for the "horror" aspect of kay hooper.  heather graham has the suspense without the gruesome if that makes sense. not to say there isn't sometimes a little gruesome in hers, but they are easier to swallow and easier to sleep after.

if you like cozy mysteries with a spiritual/paranormal twist, there are two series that are great. one is the bailey ruth series and the other is the aunt dimity series.  i'll have to get the name of the authors tomorrow at work for you.  they are truly "cozies" and very uplifting pleasant reads.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8

I did read some of the aunt dimity series.  But she hops around to much.  I was always confused.

I'm supposed to be reading Deafening but I can't make myself do it.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bestofour on Aug 27, 2016, 02:07:04 PM
I did finally read Deafening and liked it sort of.  Not that I'd recommend it to my friends but it was ok.

Somehow I ended up with a book called Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini and now I don't like Tom Cruise AT ALL.  The book is not the greatest read but it's amazing how people get involved in things that are really harmful to them.

I read a book on Scientology (I'll have to find it at the library, I don't remember the name) and I don't like the folks who are caught up in it either.  It was scary what they do to people.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bestofour on Aug 28, 2016, 04:59:59 PM
Off topic but I'd like to know what Scientologist believe in or what they believe about or something.  After reading the book I'm confused.  All I know is that they have to pay to take courses in an effort to be able to take more courses.

I read a new book today, well, started it last night and finished it today, and decided it would be a good book to put here.  And I read a second book that I think Tammy would like. Only to get here and have the following warning...

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 30 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.

Which tells me that while I know I've been reading like a fool, none of us have posted a whole lot!

The book I read was by Sara Driscoll, and is supposed to be the first in a series about the FBI K-9 search dogs.  I think it was the first suspense book I have read in ages that wasn't gruesome, didn't have ANY sex in it, and didn't even have romance in it!  And it was good enough that I put it down last night under protest and finished it over breakfast.  It is a new book, only been out a couple of months.  The title is "Lone Wolf" and I am not sure how they got that title, but I really enjoyed it and will read the rest as they come out.

The book I read that I think Tammy would like is called "Ghost in the Guacamole".  It is part of a series by Sue Ann Jaffarian (she has 3 series) called the "Granny Apple" mysteries.  They are cozies, and this one was good enough that it was a re-read.  I don't even know what I have next up.

I read Dead Wake and hate to say I enjoyed it due to the subject but I was eager to pick it back up when I had to put it down.  It's about the Lusitania. 

Now I'm reading What Alice Forgot and so far I really like it.

I've been reading paranormal stuff lately.  The latest was Dark Rites by Heather Graham.  it is the latest in her FBI Krewe of Hunters series.  It is pretty good.  I finished it in one day.  I also read Julie Garwood's latest police procedural  "Wired" which is an FBI set as well, but with a different spin.  It was also a winner.

I read something more profound recently, and though "i need to put that on ssh" but i'll be if I can remember what it was!
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bestofour on Sep 25, 2017, 09:24:30 PM
Have you read Burial Rites by Hannah Kent?  Based on a true story.   Sooooo good.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on Sep 26, 2017, 09:09:17 PM
no.  i'll have to put that on hold tomorrow. 

i was farther behind on heather graham than i thought.  right after dark rites, i got wicked deeds.  it is the same fbi paranormal suspense as the others, but this one focuses on edgar allen poe.  it was pretty good!

i am not reading back, but i think the one i wanted you to read was "chickens in the road".  it is a biography and i'll have to get the author's name tomorrow at work. it is pretty good.

Last month my book club read Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld which is said to be an updated Pride and Prejudice.  Well it's trash.  None of us enjoyed it and a few, me included, didn't even finish it.  It got great reviews on Goodreads and I don't know what those people were thinking.

This month we're reading American's First Daughter which is supposed to be historic fiction but all the history  must be in the first 2 chapters because I'm on chapter 15 and from chapter 3 until now it's about a made up love story that gets sillier and sillier.  May not finish this one either.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on Jan 19, 2018, 10:17:58 PM
sheri, america's first daughter has been doing a lot of business at the library, but is not making the wait lists. it is more a "oh, that looks interesting, maybe i'll read it" book.  it didn't look interesting to me though.

lately, i've been reading paranormal suspense, romantic suspense, and paranormal romance, not to mention the paranormal romantic suspense.  that sounds silly but it's "light" reading that grabs me but doesn't leave me feeling worse for the reading of it.  that said, tomorrow i will pick up the latest irene hannon christian suspense. i can't remember the name, but i've been waiting a while...

I've moved on to Wolf Hollow.  So far so good. 
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on Apr 15, 2018, 11:23:56 PM
sheri, how was wolf hollow?  i read 2 newish books this weekend. both fiction, not "high end" stuff.  One was Darynda Jones's "Eleventh Grave" in the Moonlight (it's part of a series, if you are interested, you want to start at the beginning) and the other was Heather Graham's "A Dangerous Game".

the 11th grave was pretty much what i expected, ended almost in a cliched way, but, it was well written and a definite page turner, after the 4th or 5th page.  she got off to a slow start with this one.

A dangerous game was a lot better, a page turner from the beginning.  and while it was a mystery/suspense, it had a good plot, a couple of good red herrings, and ended in a interesting way. And, it was the first of her books that hasn't had a paranormal twist in a long time.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bestofour on Apr 16, 2018, 12:33:38 PM
Wolf Hollow was ok.  I gave it a 3 on Goodreads because it's well written but seems like the time period is wrong.  It's predictable and the main child character was caught in lie after lie and was never corrected by her parents.  That really bothered me.  Most in my book club agreed it was ok to read once but we wouldn't recommend it to an adult or a teenager.

I very much like suspense.  I'll look for those two.  Thanks.  Is Dangerous Games a series too?

This month we're reading News of the World by Paulette Jiles.  I haven't started it yet. 
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on Apr 17, 2018, 10:52:38 PM
A dangerous game is a spin off of the "Krewe of Hunters" series.  It stands alone, but if you start with the beginning of the series, it is a great series.  And very apt for those of us who believe in ghosts :grinnnn:

Finished News of the World which was about a man taking a girl who had been taken captive by the Indians back to her white family.  Was good.  Mentioned in the back of the book was The Captured A True Story of Abduction by Indians on the Texas Plains by Scott Zesch.  Johnny picked it up for me and it's very good.  I like true stuff.  It's graphic in parts but the facts are sometimes graphic.  It was written because the author was curious as to why many abducted by Indians didn't want to return home when given the chance and would often escape their white families and try to get back to their adopted tribe.  I had no idea the Texas plains were inhabited by so many Germans.

i read christine feehan's newest called judgement road.  i've at least liked, if not loved all her books.  that one just was not up to par.  she always has a good paranormal twist of some kind belonging to the main male/female characters.  this time, not so much. it was hinted at, but... she missed the mark.  and it is sad because it is a spin off of another very good series.  i'm reading one of her older books now, the scarletti curse. i'm having mixed emotions on it as well.  she has several very good series of books.  but i'm with holding judgement on judgement road and the torpedo ink series.  the next one has to be better or i'm done with that series. at least she has enough back stuff to keep me busy.

Have you read anything by Michael Connelly?  I just put The Late Night on hold.  It's the first of a series about a woman detective in NYC.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on May 09, 2018, 09:17:35 PM
I haven't, but he's on my list of "possibles" for when I run out of other things.  I did finish Irene Hannon's "Dangerous Illusions".  It is christian romantic suspense. more on the suspense than on the christian or the romance. it was good, and i didn't quite see the end coming the way it did.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bestofour on Jun 28, 2018, 03:08:38 PM
Actually the book by Michael Connell was The Late Shift - not The Late Night.  I didn't like it.  The woman detective was put on the last shift because she complained about being sexually harassed by her Lieutenant but throughout the book she used her sexually to get favors from other policeman and evidently the writer thought that wasn't an issue.  She also lived on a beach in a tent which seems totally unrealistic to me.  She kept her work clothes in her locker at work and changed in the work bathroom. 

I finished Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf and really liked it.  Also read Summer Hours at the Robbers Library by Sue Halpern which was just ok.

I just read the worst book I've read in a long time and my book club friend agrees.  She didn't even finish it.  I thought it would be good because it's historical fiction, The Orphan's Tale by Pam Jenoff, about the circus in Germany during WW2.  It's amazing that Hitler allowed the circus to continue to continue performing and it's amazing that people had money to pay to go.  The backstory is horrible.  Don't read it.

Post by: bestofour on Aug 03, 2018, 09:38:29 PM
I have to tell you that there were only 2 of us at the book club who didn't like that book.  The others loved the way all the ends were tied at the end (even though it was so unbelievable that it could have been classified as a fantasy) and they all loved that the characters were concerned with trivial bits of their lives rather than the fact that the SS officers could shoot them dead at any second and the fact that they were all starving.  The other person who didn't like it didn't like it for the same reasons I didn't. Oh well.
Title: Re: Book Review Corner Volume 8
Post by: bayou girl on Aug 04, 2018, 09:32:08 PM

sheri, i looked into that book. i remember seeing it when it came out.  but i decided i wasn't ready for it mentally.  i'm still a little sluggish.

i just finished kathy reichs' new book "two nights".  i say new, i think it came out last year, but it is her latest.  it's not a temperance brannen (the inspiration for the tv show "bones")  and it is written slightly differently, but it has a great twist to the end, and a good overall plot.  i liked it.  i'm waiting to see if she'll make it a series or not.  i'm also reading the Preston & Child "A.X.L. Pendergast" series.  It's very different.

 Wow, it's been a long time since we posted here. I've read 2 books worthy of putting here in the last month. Both fairly new releases even.

The first one was "Long Road to Mercy" by David Baldacci. It's the first in a new series, with the main character a strong woman. I heard a radio interview with him about it, and decided I'd read it, or try to, when it came in. I did and really enjoyed it.

The latest one was "Watcher in the Woods" by Kelly Armstrong. It's not the first on the series, but was good enough to stand alone. I'll be going back and reading the rest of the series.  The series is "Rockton" and the main character is Casie Duncan. I think I read one, or part of one a while ago, but I'm not sure. I've read her "fluffy" stuff and liked it. I'm glad her serious stuff is as good.

If you haven't read the 8 books mentioned in it try to do that first.  I think it made it better.  I liked it alot.

Well, last year I started David Baldacci's new series, about Atlee Pine, a female FBI agent. I really liked book 1, "Long Road to Mercy. The second book want as good as the first, but not bad. The 3rd book go to the library on Monday,  and I'm disappointed. I feel like he left out a chapter. Between that and not really being in the mood for it anyway, I've put it aside and I'll try again later. I only got about 40 pages in.

 My co-worker read it and said she thinks it's just my mood. She saw the problems with it to start with, but she said they worked themselves out quickly. I'll try again when my turn comes up again. There's a waiting list for it.

I read "The Grimm Legacy" by Polly Shulman. It's really good. I stayed up late to finished it.
