Weekend Book Report #7

Well things have been busy around here and I've been lazy on top of that. We had a great labor day weekend. We went up north, we went 4-wheeling and played in the mud. Last weekend was our 5th wedding anniversary, so we celebrated by going to the Renaissance festival. Had a great time as usual. Down fall was that the food prices have gone up, but vendor cost seem to be normal.

Okay on to the books. There's been a lot of books read. Not all of them noteworthy, so I'll just briefly mention them. I also didn't get a lot of pictures of them either. So you'll have to excuse the lack of pictures in this post. I'll try and get some of the current reads for you and post them later.

First up was To Wed a Wicked Prince by Jane Feather. A romance novel. Book two in a trilogy. I give it one star.

Next was Wild Card by Lora Leigh. Another romance novel this one high on the smut. This is a book in a series I believe called Elite Ops. This one had a little more of a store line as well. Man goes on Navy Seals mission. Does not come back, his wife has been told he died. In truth he's still alive and had been captured. And he goes and creates a new identity. Two stars.

Plain and Simple: A Woman's Journey into the Amish by Sue Bender. This is a non fiction book. It's about the author's journey, to figure out why she is drawn to the Amish. It was an okay read. I did give it two and half stars. But could see it given more at a different point in my life. Right now I just couldn't take the messages and apply them to my life right now.

Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs. This is book three in the Mercy Thompson series. This is a fantasy series. In this book Mercy is trying to help Zee her former boss and mentor, when he is arrested for murder. Mercy is also forced to choose between the two males in her life. Four stars.

I also picked on On the Prowl. This book contains 4 short stories by four different authors. All of them are fantasy. I had picked this one up for a specific story in it. It was Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs. It is the set up another series. This one is based on Charles whom we meet as a back ground character in Moon Called. I read some of the other stories they were okay. Over all I'd give this book three stars.

Now this past weekend I read Seven Sisters by Earlene Fowler. This is book seven in the Benni Harper series. This is mystery series. They are very light reads. Benni is women who is very curious and finds herself involved in all sorts of mysteries in her town. In this one Benni's step-son finds himself in love and going to be a parent, so when the two families get together to meet and discuss things. Someone ends up dead. I'd give this book three and half stars.

I also tried reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy. This is a fiction novel. From what I did read this story is about a man and his young son as they travel southwards after some devastating event (end of life as we know it kind of event). I'm not really sure what happened. It would be a quick read. But it was just a little too down for me, with not enough back round information. One star.

I hope everyone is having a good September. Can you believe that we are half way through it already?!!
