Twilight (Twilight, #1)

A gripping, entertaining, fun, but very light read. Probably more for the teenage crowd, but still a fun diversion from reality. This one is the best ...more

Vanishing Acts

I usually like Jodi Picoult's books and some of them I love (My SIster's Keeper), but this one was a let-down. It was just "too much". It wasn't belie ...more

Again, Marklund delivers a well written, mysterious novel that draws you in from the beginning and keeps you turning the pages for more. I think for t ...more

The Glass Castle

This book is well written and eye-opening. It is also however, really depressing in parts. Since it focuses on a family with children it can be a toug ...more

The Memory Keeper's Daughter

I liked this book, but I'm not sure I'd read it again. Some of the characters are not very likeable, and lately that seems to really be ruining a stor ...more

Sprängaren (Annika Bengtzon, #4)

One of my favorite Swedish authors, and this book is one of her best. Full of suspense, this detective story is great. Of course you'd have to know ho ...more

The Secret Life of Bees

Hannibal Rising (Hannibal Lecter, #4)

A total waste of my time and money! If Harris spent any time at all working on this story, it can't have been many minutes! Disgusting and disappointi ...more

Eclipse (Twilight, #3)

#3 in this series, and not very good. It was alright, but I doubt I'll read #4 if it comes out based on the downhill slide the books have been taking. ...more

Prime Time (Annika Bengtzon, #3)
3.41
I'm not sure if any of Marklund's books are available in English, but even if they are I'm afraid something would get lost in translation.

The Pilot's Wife

Hide (Detective D.D. Warren, #2)
4.11
It was okay, but that's about all it was. Not really worth the time unless you really have some time you'd like to waste.

Body Surfing

Boring, supermarket romance, fluff. Didn't like it at all. Shreve's got some good books, but this doesn't even get close.

The Constant Princess (The Tudor Court, #1)

Blah! The story line is dumb, the characters are irritating, the whole book is just annoying. A waste of time.
