I got alot of new books from family at Christmas, that is the one thing they always know that I will love and appreciate. Barnes & Noble gift cards are the bomb, imo.

I have finished all of the Nicholas Sparks books now, and shipped the ones I have read since moving back home to my cousin. Now, I am in the midst of a big Luanne Rice kick. I read the Edge of Winter and loved it, and am now reading Sandcastles.

I love poetry and quotations too, and we have a family website that we all posts pictures, have message boards, and all do our own blogs, and I am always writing something down and saving it for a later day that connects with a blog that I may write later on down the line. So Kevin got me a book before he left, titled, Women Know Everything.....let me add that he wrote a note to me on the inside letting me know that he totally disagreed with the title. LOL!!!!!!


I love a man with humor and we all know how wonderful he is Fame.
I havent read any Luanne Rice books. Are they drama's , mysteries, love, comedy?
If I love love love Nicolas Sparks, would I like her?
YOu see, I like romance novels . I dontread much of anything else.

Yes, I think you would like her. I am really enjoying her. I love a good romance novel, but I wouldn't describe her books as romantical and nothing else. The book that I have read and the one that I am currently reading now, have a strong sense of family too. The best idea I can give you about her is what I read about her: "One of America's most mesmerizing storytellers, Luanne Rice enthralls readers with her moving tales of ordinary people in crisis--and how they are transformed by the enduring power of love and family." And, I would absolutely agree with that assesment of her books. I am a sucker for a great story that keeps you interested and entertained throughout, and at the same time leaves me feeling satisfied that I am getting a good message, and I do feel that Luanne Rice delivers. I am hoping that the other two I have waiting on me, Summer's Light and Summer's Child, will be just as satisfying.

Another book that I reccomend is P.S. I Love You, by Cecelia Ahern. I have a bad habit of reading a book before I watch the film that it is adapted from, and am always disappointed with the film.

My grandmother bought me this book when it first came out a few years ago, and I loved it. Now, I want to see the film, starring Hillary Swank, but I am very leery, because I think I will be critical of it. And, I really want to like the movie, because I loved the book. I literally remember having to stop to explain to Tyler that I was crying because of the book, and that it made me sad, he said to me, "Mommy, if that book makes you cry, put it down. Not worf (had difficulty with some sounds, so worth) it."

One of the best books that I read this past year, however, would have to be Still Breathing by Lisa Burdziejko, I loved it. I think I sat and read it from cover to back in the span of six hours. I simply could not put it down.

One more thing, has anyone read Danielle Steele's Amazing Grace?

I am very interested in reading this one, but it is only in hardcover right now, and I am not wanting to pay that price, if I am going to be disappointed.
