Canyons of Night  

 

 

Hi Everyone - This was quite a week for new books. It was a dilemma which one to read first - I chose the new Jayne Ann Krentz/Jayne Castle - Canyons of the Night. So far it's good. I'm not sure which one is next - It's an embarassment of riches. Happy Reading...

 

Anne


Thanks Anne, if my eyes weren't already green they would be, how did I miss this one coming out. I'm stopping on my way home B&N here I come

 

I just finished this one

Only Yours (Fool's Gold Series #5)

Right now like some of you I'm re-reading Kiss of Fire

I stopped halfway through New York to Dallas to do some required reading, but it's a good one, out next week

And right now I just started this read, a new author to me, so far so good.

Foreign Body  

 

 Robin Cook has always been a favorite of mine.  He's a writer of mystery-suspense-medical stories.  Although, he did take off in another direction with a sci fi once, which didn't turn out so hot.  I've read most of his books, and have enjoyed them a little more with each new one.  He's a writer who has improved with age! 

 

As I've just started reading this novel, Foreign Body, it starts off in India, and with each progressive chapter, introduces a simultaneous action by another character(s), in different places, both city and country.  It's easy to follow what these characters are doing, and interesting how, if true to form, he'll bring these characters all together. 

 

Recently, I noticed the movie Contagion coming out, and I was curious as to whether this movie was from Cook's novel by the same title, but it wasn't.  He has written novels that have been made into movies, this just happened to not be one of them.  If you love suspense, see this old movie, Coma!  His medical background lends itself to all of his stories, and really makes them believable, and even scary to know that anything is possible, and does happen!  Enjoy!

  

(I tried to write somthing to this, yesterday, but had a glitch in the typing, and the posting.  A friend of mine told me it had to do with my server, it's called a delayed response time, which caused me to type over my sentences.  Weird, is all I can say.  I've never had that happen, although, I've never had Time Warner as my server before, either!)

Re: Foreign Body

I recently finished Ingenue. It is set in the 1920s, roaring twenties. I read the arc of the first in the series Vixen, here at Barnes and Noble. This book is just as good as the first one.

Mudbound  by Hillary Jordan

 

Coffee_luvr brought this to my attention in June of 2010, then it disappeared from my radar.  (Stephenie and Ibis had read it earlier, according to posts here.)  I don't know what brought it forward again, but I know I was looking for something as an adult antidote to another reading of To Kill a Mockingbird  (Harper Lee).  This certainly fits that bill!

 

[I just copied this post -- with a little more detail -- to our current reading thread.  My apologies for the duplication, but I figure this thread should quickly sink downwards again.]

I have just finished the book City of Orphans. This is a great book for all ages and I believe the story takes place in 1890 in New York city. If you have ever seen the movie the newsies you might want to check this book out.

Well it's been quite a few years since I read this classic DisGuy, it's well worth the read unless you don't like tragedies and unhappy endings.

 

I'm also supplying a link to the new What are you reading thread, this one doesn't get used anymore and I'd hate to have anyone miss your posts

You are of course welcome to use which ever you like.
