2012 Books

I read 109 books in 2012...

* 100 by female authors
* 9 by male authors

Most read male author: James Patterson - 5 books
Second: Michael Palmer - 2 books

Most read female author: Susan Mallery - 11 books
Second: Carly Phillips - 8 books

Most popular female authors after the top 2:

Emily March - 6 books
Brenda Novak - 6 books

Robyn Carr - 5 books

Nora Roberts - 4 books
JoAnn Ross - 4 books

Sheryyl Woods - 3 books

Kristin Hannah - 2 books
Iris Johansen - 2 books
Karin Slaughter - 2 books

Mallery and Phillips are long-time authors that I just started reading this year, that's why I read so many of their books.

You can tell by my most-read authors this year that I spent a lot of time reading romance books. It's not usually a genre that I focus on THAT much, but for some reason, these books spoke to me this year. Perhaps because I just celebrated my 25th anniversary and romance is always good?

Of course, you can't put Johansen or Slaughter in the romance category. Suspense and drama all the way with those two.

Patterson has had some good books this year. I had kind of gotten bored with his books over the last year or two because they just weren't as good. His Alex Cross series is still my favorite.

Now it's on to 2013. My first book this year is A Home of Her Own by Brenda Novak. Trying to finish up her Dundee, Idaho series.

My goal for this year is to read at least one more book than last year, so 110 + books, here I come!

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…
