Burnt Offerings, by Laurell K. Hamilton

Burnt Offerings, by Laurell K. Hamilton

400 pages

Not my favorite so far. Kind of heavy on the torture for my taste.

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

390 pages

I wasn't really a fan of this book at all. Frankly, I thought it was boring and the last 3/4 of it seemed too jumbled. I struggled to keep things straight.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

391 pages

My personal favorite of the series. I can't wait for the movie!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

374 pages

After all the hype, I finally decided to give in and read The Hunger Games...and it was worth it. I couldn't read fast enough. Excellent book.

Pole Dancing to Gospel Hymns by Andrea Gibson

96 pages

Andrea Gibson's first published book. These poems will stick with you. Flawless.

Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America by Leslie Knope

256 pages

As seen on Parks and Recreation! This book includes all of Leslie's favorite spots around town, the history of Pawnee, and commentary from other members of the parks department.


Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs..............................................366 pages

From Canada to Guatemala and back, forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperence Brennan never stops on her quest to find the truth of some current and some ancient mysteries and disappearances.


Divine Evil by Nora Roberts...................................468 pages

With Nora Roberts, you never know.  This one is a satanistic type novel, not one of my favorites but with Nora it is always hard to stop reading one of her stories once you get started.

Fifty Shades Freed by E L James


Fifty Shades Freed by E L James
555 pages

Like I have said, this is not the best writing I have read, but I did love the storyline. The trilogy finishes out with a bang.

Jump the Cracks by Stacy DeKeyser

207 pages

The premise seems highly unlikely.  It's obvious that the author has an axe to grind and is using this teen-age main character as a way to express it.  I found it unrealistic.

The Killing Dance, by Laurell K. Hamilton

The Killing Dance, by Laurell K. Hamilton

400 pages

The Inquisitor's Key by Jefferson Bass

353 pages

Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker by E L James
532 pages

I am still thoroughly enjoying the writing of this trilogy, but I have to say the writing is becoming a bit redundant. There are only so many times you can hear about Ana's inner goddess doing doing backflips, or Grey's pants falling 'that way that I like' before it gets a bit old.
