LibraryLass | 772 comments Don't know how you do it Vi, I can only read one book at a time.


message 5: by Vi (new)

Vi | 2012 comments The buddy reads have fixed number of pages/chapters per day. I sucked at my first attempt at such buddy read of A Game of Thrones. I just wanted to binge-read keep on reading the book and didn't want to stop. Then stopped reading halfway and inhaled read it in one sitting.

Now I'm testing my resolve to stick to the plan by reading other books. I think I'm weird.

LibraryLass | 772 comments You're not weird, Vi. At least not on this site. You are just like the rest of us nutters passionate avid readers. ;)

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 1058 comments Yz

I've heard some not-so-hot opinions on This Side of the Grave from Frost fans, so I haven't started it yet. I'd be interested to hear what you think.

Read The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1) by Kimberly Derting Friday-Saturday and then had various 4th of July get-togethers over the weekend. Today's a work holiday, so if I can force myself to finish The Reckoners by Doranna Durgin , I can move on to something else.

message 18: by Peter (new)

Peter Medley | 1 comments The Perfect Deceit

An intriguing and fascinating book on how countries vie against each other to be top dog on the world stage. Spies, double agents, love triangles -- it’s all in a day’s work for super spy Alexey! In today’s interconnected world, this book gives an interesting perspective on how much competition goes on behind the scenes with ambitions and stakes running high. Hearts are broken and for some power is gained.

Illuminating book on the espionage sphere. Lots of mind games involved. Great book with high drama. Makes for a perfect summer read!

message 23: by Erin (new)

Erin H | 758 comments Finished Upon a Wicked Time (An Avon Romantic Treasure) by Karen Ranney and I was very disappointed. I thought the book was actually awful, I couldn't believe that the heroine would actually spend the whole book trying to make the hero love her-this was not my kind of plot :)...also read Lady of Desire by Gaelen Foley and it's my favorite of the series so far!! Starting A Lady Never Tells (Willowmere, #1) by Candace Camp !!
