message 12: by Arlene (new)

Arlene | 388 comments I was going to say, "Oh no, you missed #15" but you didn't! I love her books and Diane Mott Davidson. I'm not into vampires, so I haven't read any of those. Congrats on 50.


message 13: by Debbie (new)

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments Thanks, I am a pretty eclectic reader. One of my patients recommended the vampire series and I enjoyed it if someone recommends a book to me I usually try it.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 53. Will in the World How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare by Stephen Jay Greenblatt Will In The World
There is so little definitive evidence of Shakespeare's history that most of the book is supposition. It does not really flesh him out for me.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 54. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger The Catcher in the Rye

I know this book was supposed to be ground breaking for it's time, but I must be missing something. I just don't see where it is such a life changing classic.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 55 The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

I really liked this book it was a complicated mystery that was still possible to follow. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) by Stieg Larsson The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) by Stieg Larsson

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 56. The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins

This is not a genre that I would normally read, but it is so popular that I thought I'd try it. At first I thought i wouldn't like it but then I couldn't put it down.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 57. Wicked Appetite (The Unmentionables, #1) by Janet Evanovich Wicked Appetite

This was a very easy read. Not much to it, but Janet' humor is enjoyable, even if her plots are thin.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 58. Catching Fire (Hunger Games, #2) by Suzanne Collins Catching Fire

I really liked this book. I am not a sci-fi reader, but could not put this book down.Can't wait to read the next one.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 59. The Necklace Thirteen Women and the Experiment That Transformed Their Lives by Cheryl Jarvis

I felt the women in the group were self absorbed and self promoters.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 60. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I really enjoyed this book and felt that it was an accurate portrayal of the affect of the War on the average person.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 61. Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3) by Suzanne Collins The Mockingjay
I loved this series. It is easy to become invested in these characters, that being said I don't think the final book was as strong as the first 2.

I agree. A little more than 1/2 way through the book started to feel a little choppy and disjointed. It was still a quick read, but definitely not as good as the 1st 2.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 62. The Murder of King Tut by James Patterson The Murder of King Tut
This book is an easy read but it is somewhat disjointed. It really isn't the ground breaking discovery that Patterson makes it out to be.

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 63.The Five People You Meet in HeavenThe Five People You Meet in Heaven

I loved this book. It intrigues me what other peoples vision of heaven are and this is a good. It is a version of the "everything happens for a reason".

Debbie Reeder | 91 comments 64.Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

This is a reread. I love this series. I think JK Rowlings is brilliant. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7) by J.K. Rowling
