Weekly Reading Poll

Hello all!
Hope your summers are going well. I've been able to do quite a bit of reading this summer in the evenings since there is nada/bupkiss/zilch on TV at this time of year.

This past week I really enjoyed reading my first Sidney Sheldon book, "Master of the Game". A light 'literary eye candy' read with lots of manipulation and greed. Total "Dynasty" type book.

Right now I'm reading "The Pact" by Jodi Picoult and really enjoying it. She has a way of keeping the reader interested and needing to find out more.

Next up? I've found a new author, Stephanie Bond, who has written several books in a mystery series. It seems like a "Stephanie Plum"-type book but unfortunately I reserved the 2nd, 3rd and 4th books in the series and forgot to reserve the first. *sigh*

Luckily, my Fairy Bookmother dropped off some new reads so I have to decide if I'll read "Undone" by Karen Slaughter (mystery/suspense), "Secret Daughter" by Shilpi Somaya Gowda (fiction) or "The Neighbour" by Lisa Gardner (suspense). Oh the pressure!!!

What are you all reading? Have you read any of the proposed books I've mentioned? If so, did you like them?

Hi, I just discovered your blog. Right now I'm reading Raptor Red by Robert T. Bakker. It's about a female dinosaur in the Early Cretaceous Age.

Hi Sharilyn. Welcome to my blog. I'm glad you found it.

As of 5 minutes ago I started a new book called "The Neighbour" by Lisa Gardner. She writes suspense books that are similar in style to Lisa Scottoline or Karen Slaughter.

I look forward to swapping info on new authors and books with you here on my blog. :)

I read The Master of the Game in high school (I went through a summer of reading all the Sydney Sheldon books). They also came out with a mini-series based on the book and it was amazing. All star cast: Harry Hamelin, Dyan Cannon and more.

Hey Giesen,
I will definitely check out that miniseries. If it's from the 80's I can only imagine the outfits and hair. Oh my! ;)
