I would like to take a minute and share with you what to expect when looking over my blog. This page is an opportunity to share with others what I like to do in my spare time. These activities range from reading, which I need to do more of (have a mountain of books to conquer and I still buy more =)...) making my own greeting cards, ornaments and more.

Hell Bent by William G. Tapply is a well written book. The story line was well thought out and developed nicely through out the book. When reading this book you are introduced to one story and then quickly brought into another story line all long not losing the first group of characters introduced.
Once Tapply begins to expand on the main storyline involving Brady Coyne you would think that the previous story would be pushed to the wayside however that is not true. Tapply does a wonderful job of not only bringing a conclusion to the main topic but also a conclusion to the beginning story line.

Hell Bent is a story that will keep you guessing until the end. The story grabs you from the beginning and keeps you interested until the very end.

Hell Bent has a little bit of everything to offer the reader from romance to mystery and suspense. Tapply also does a superb job of describing each character so it is as if you know them and in they end you are pulling for the main character Brady Coyne to come out on top and happy.

I highly recommend this book for others to read.

Tan Lines by J.J.SALEM is a must read for the summer. The way Salem intertwines the story lines of three friends is amazing. Liza, Billie and Kellyanne are all characters you can relate to. While each woman has their own story line their lives intertwine in the summer they share together.
As you read about each woman you begin to feel their pain, their happiness and see their dreams. Each woman has a story to tell. Their stories make you love them, feel for them and yes at times dislike them. You have Liza who speaks up for herself through out the story, Kellyanne who has lead a tough life in acting and makes a few mistakes only to change her direction of life, and Billie who everyone loves to hate. Billie alone pulls pain, addiction and life's struggles together for an amazing story.

Tan Lines is a book that pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you interested until the very end. An end which one may not expect.

Tan Lines is a must read for me.

Review of Charanavi

I recently received Charanavi by Masahiro Tsurumoto from Lisa Roe. When I first received the book I wasn't sure how accurate it would be.

Finding what animal you were was easy Other personality books I have read have difficult equations to find out which personality you are. This one was simple and to the point. Once I found my number I matched it up to the animal and began reading about the animal that describes my personality. I have to say the animal to a strong degree described who I am. After reading about my personality I moved on to finding out the personality of my friends and family. And as I read about them I found it to be very accurate on them also.

This book is a great way to find some idea as to why some people act the way they do. I also found it a great add where it listed out other numbers and animals that I would be compatible with. it opened my eyes to why some do th things they do.

I highly recommend this book for those that would like a little insight into the actions of others. All you need to know is the persons birth date and the book will tell you the rest.

Book reviews

The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson is a story about ones man journey of healing. During his healing he finds a woman that shares with him religion, a story about various cultures and histories and most of all a love story.
Each story told by Marianne is a story that comes full circle with the main character. Marianne is a spirited woman who feels that she has lived many past lives and shares stories of the people she had known. The most important story that is carried through out the book and elaborated on until the very end is the love story between the main character and herself. It starts off slow with the main character not fully believing in what Marianne is telling him. He doesn't understand how she feels that they have know each other before. He not believing in past lives feels that she is crazy and researches various mental disorders until he finds the one that best fits her.

All through out the story Marianne takes you on a ride sharing stories of various cultures but one underlying tie, Love. each story she tells talks about an undying love. Marianne shares the story of their past life through out the book and keeps you wanting more until the end. The ending is one that is unexpected at first but a fitting ending to all the stories that were shared through out.

The Gargoyle is a story about an undying love between two characters across the test of time.

A must read.

Went into Borders today to pick up a book by a new author that a friend of mine at work recommended. couldn't find that author but left with five books. Above are the five books I left with. =) One of which I realize now is the third in the series. What does this mean... Well it means I have to go and buy the two previous books in the series before i can read the one i currently have.
