Book Blurbing

Sometimes, I either a) don't have time b) don't have enough to say c) aren't at a computer d) didn't like a book enough to write a full review, but I still want a record of what I've been reading, and at least a picture of the cover on the blog to jog my memory at times! So, without further ado, some book blurbing from the last couple of months...

Absolute Power by David Baldacci

Absolute Power is absolutely fantastic. Couldn't put it down!













The Spymaster's Lady by Joanna Bourne

This features a fantastic heroine, and I really loved the spy story!












The Quilter's Kitchen by Jennifer Chiaverini

Uber-quick read. Lots of recipes. Okay story.













Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

YA novel from one of the popular authors. Kinda sad. Not as good an ending as I would have wanted.











Holly by Jude Deveraux

Chintzy Christmas story. Easy to read, but a touch unbelievable.












The Gift by Richard Paul Evans

Another Christmas story, this time listened to on audio (good narrator). Nice Christmas story.











Second Thyme Around by Katie Fforde

Cute. British. Fixer-upper cottage, romance, kind neighbor. Enjoyable.












The Christmas Pearl by Dorothea Benton Frank

Nice enough Christmas story, complete with a ghost!













Fatal Tide by Iris Johansen

I can honestly say this was one of the stupidest books I've ever read.












Past Perfect by Susan Isaacs

Former CIA girl, screenwriter, mayhem, hysteria - fun enough! Good audio narration...











A Seduction at Christmas by Cathy Maxwell

Regency romp, taking place around the holidays. Titled boy falls for girl. Happily ever after - but what about their friends? I'll read the next one...










One Perfect Gift by Kathleen Morgan

A "Culdee Creek" Christmas. Out west, times of cowboys, Christmas tale. Eh.












Sealed with a Kiss by Carly Phillips

Okay narration, okay story, can't really remember it, which doesn't bode well...












Sweet Revenge by Nora Roberts

A princess, a jewel thief, and a romance. One of Nora's much older (circa 1988) stories. Not as good as her newer ones...












La Petite Four by Regina Scott

A wanna be Regency romance for the YA set. Eh.












Friday Nights by Joanna Trollope

I kept waiting for it to improve, get happy, get something. It didn't.












What They Always Tell Us by Martin Wilson

Coming of age/coming out of the closet YA story, told from a male perspective. Sweetly written.












The Sweet In-Between by Sheri Reynolds

I had high hopes for this Southern, gender-confused, sassy protagonist's story. I was disppointed. Not my cup of tea.

I'm impressed. She conquers "the book review" in one or two sentences! Wow. Fun to read. Thanks for posting.

Thanks, Linore! I just *couldn't* let them go without at least a sentence or two! Thanks for reading! :-)
