Reading As Fast As I Can

Wednesday is usually my book review/author interview day. The "to be reviewed list" has dwindled to zero. Maybe I should take one of those speed-reading classes, but that probably wouldn't work too well for me. Nope. I need to savor that unexpected twist, commiserate with the character's dilemma, and cheer when the bad guy is brought to justice. So, I'm stuck reading at my normal pace.

I'm reading, "Making Eye Contact With God," by my friend, Terri Gillespie. Also, on my nightstand is, "Havah," by Tosca Lee, and I'm half way through Brandilyn Collins', "Violet Dawn." For some unknown reason, I'm not getting as much "sit down and read time" as before. I've got a bunch of books waiting in line for my attention. (Can you hear them jumping up and down and saying, "pick me, pick me next?")

What's on your nightstand (or desk, or floor, or bookshelf)? Have you read any outstanding, eye-popping, heart-wrenching, or chilling novels lately?

Lots of books waiting on my floor. I just started By Reason of Insanity by Randy Singer. LOVE it! I've never read his books before but I will try to find some older ones. It's really engrossing.

I'm reading Pecoult's newest book. I love her style but I'm not sure I love this particular book because it jumps abit much.

Hi Terri -

I've heard of her, but never read her books. What type of books does she write?

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Jess -

I haven't heard of him at all. Is this a Christian author or general market? Details?

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Jess -

Cool. I'll have to check him out. Thanks for the info.

Blessings,
Susan :)

P.S. I'll have a book review next week. I finished Violet Dawn yesterday.

Hi Susan - nice to spend a little time with you here on your blog. Good reads! I don't have nearly enough time for fiction - oh, I wish! But since my husband has some surgery coming up soon, I'll be tucking a book inside my purse for the hospital. Good to connect w/you on Facebook today.

Blessings,
Vicki

Hi Vicki -

Welcome to my blog. :) I post here on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Maybe someday I'll get brave enough to make it 5 days a week. LOL!

I'm sorry to hear your husband needs surgery. We'll pray for a successful procedure and quick recovery.

Blessings,
Susan :)
