September Books

I read 8 books in September:

1) Open-An Autobiography by Andre Agassi
2) 1022 Evergreen Place by Debbie Macomber
3) From my Perspective  by Joseph S. Bonsall
4) Stay by Alison Leigh
5) Orchard Valley Grooms by Debbie Macomber
6) Am Amish Christmas by Cynthia Keller
7) Tough Customer by Sandra Brown
8) Dream Mender by Sherryl Woods

The Andre Agassi book was an eye-opener. The poor guy was abused by his father and hated tennis. After a fairly loveless marriage to Brooke Shields he's now married to Steffi Graf, and after retiring from tennis, is a happier person.

Debbie Macomber's books are always good.

Joe Bonsall is a member of the Oak Ridge Boys, and his book was enlightening, but sometimes hard to read. It bounced back and forth a bit too much, but was still enjoyable for the most part.

Cynthia Keller's book, An Amish Christmas, was a free book received from Library Thing so I could review it. I really enjoyed it. Once the kids got away from their phones, computers, Ipods, etc. they realized what real life is all about!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
