November Books

I've been slacking on my blog, something I assured myself I wouldn't do. I think the month of November was so crazy at work that my fried brain wouldn't let me think hard enough to blog...

Anyway, I managed to read 8 books in November:

1) The Best of Me - Nicholas Sparks (hardback)
2) Wild Justice - Liz Fielding (Kindle)
3) All I Want for Christmas Is You - Lisa Mondello (Kindle)
4) The Next Always: Book One of the Inn Boons Boro Trilogy - Nora Roberts (hardback)
5) Bonnie - Iris Johansen (hardback)
6) Home for Christmas - Kate Davies (Kindle)
7) The Litigators - John Grisham (hardback)
8) The Duggars: 20 & Counting - Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar (paperback)


Sparks, Roberts, Johansen and Grisham are some of my favorite authors, and I enjoyed all of their books. The Kindle books were either freebies or really, really cheap, but I enjoyed them too. I'm fascinated by the Duggar family, and watch their show on TLC whenever I can; so I liked their book too. It was written several years ago, and I picked up their latest book too. I plan to read it this month if possible.


Johansen finally ended the storyline of Eve Duncan and her murdered daughter Bonnie in her newest book. I'm sure she will continue to write about Eve, but we FINALLY know what happened to Bonnie. Loved the series, but it was time to find out how she died all those years ago.

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS
by ALLISON BRENNAN
St. Martin's Press

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…
