January 2011 Books

I read five books in January...

1) The Scarpetta Factor by Patricia Cornwell. I enjoy most of Cornwell's books, and though this one was a bit of a trudge to read, it still was a good book. Not her best though.

2) Queen of the Night by J.A. Jance. Jance is one of my favorite suspense/mystery authors, and though this book did not feature regulars Joanna Brady or J.P. Beaumont, it was a really good book.

3) Unbearable Lightness by Portia de Rossi. de Rossi, the wife of Ellen DeGeneres, writes about her eating disorder. It was tough to read at times, I think because it's hard to believe that someone who weighs 90 lbs. can believe they still need to lose weight. It is obviously a disease, and one that she finally overcame.

4) Love Me to Death by Allison Brennan. This one is classified as a romantic suspense novel. I think it had more suspense than romance, but I thought it was really good. And I'm thinking it's the first book in a series of three.

5) Tick Tock by James Patterson. Another Michael Bennett book by Patterson. Good, but not his best.

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

5 STARS

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...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
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?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
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…
