I'm on my 4th book this year. This is what I've read so far:
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
I knew this book was being made into a movie, and I like to read books before I watch the movie. This book was slow going to start out but it got better by the time I was halfway through it. It was a modern day version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, except this snatcher has a heart and a conscious. This book was much better written than the Twilight series.
The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
I'm a Nicholas Sparks fan. I've even met him and had him sign my books. Which brought up a major dilemma: I had become a Kindle reader since my last Nicholas Sparks book. I had become spoiled. I didn't know if I could read a non-Kindle book. But if didn't get the hard copy, how could Nicholas sign the next time he did a book signing? Decisions, decisions....
Anyway, I read it. I'll keep it secret on what format I used.
The plot was the normal: couple falls in love, there's obstacles, they make out. Good stuff. I'm sure it'll be made in a movie soon.
Wild Card by Lora Leigh
You know the 50 Shades series, right? This book would fall into that genre. It's quite naughty. It's more than a little far fetched, but for a naughty mom book, you can stretch you suspension of disbelief a bit.
One thing I didn't get. The main guy is all scarred up. He's not a burn victim, but it's mentioned several times that you can see his scars. All the girls in town think that this guy is absolutely gorgeous. Really? Scars? I've never thought that scars on the face, hidden by a beard, were particularly sexy. I guess there's no accounting for taste.
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
This is what I'm reading right now. It's a dystopian book about a girl who is in search of her kidnapped twin brother. The tagline was "if you like Hunger Games, you'll love Blood Red Road." The story is good so far, but I can't get past the lack of quotes or punctuation. The author is doing it on purpose, but it disturbs me.
