I'm a bibliophile

I'm going to try something new today. One of my passions are books. I love to get so caught up in a book that I can imagine being part of it. Now not all books, there are some that don't interest me at all. My favorites being mysteries and biographies. Between my Hubby and I, our house is full of books. Each room has books, from the bathroom to hallway.
Also I had an email from Amazon about linking from my blog to their site and making money off it. Now I don't expect to make any money, but I did think it was a good idea. I can tell you about the books I have read and if you are interested in the book, you are suppose it to able to click the link and it will take you to Amazon. If you happen to buy that book, even the used ones, I am suppose to profit from it. Again, I don't expect to make money and you should not feel obligated to buy through me. But if you want to read the book, don't ask me, I'm very picky about loaning them out. They never could back. Hey Melanie, if your reading this, bring back my book!

So this last weekend I sent reading. I have had a couple of books awaiting my attention. So the first was this book, Saving Cece Honeycutt.

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt: A Novel

It was a sweet story about a 12 year old girl who loses her Mother. She is rescued by an Aunt she has never meet till the week after her Mother's death.

I think I said it all with "Sweet Story". I found it very predicable. But if you're looking for something that you can put down, this is your book. Or maybe this would be good for a young teen girl.

The girl who chased the moon, was a new book from an author I had read before. So I picked it up. I was not disappointed! I loved it. Why? It wasn't the same old story. It was new and unpredictable. Definitely keep it up if you can.

The Girl Who Chased the Moon: A Novel

And this book is Highly recommended. This was Sarah Allen's first book and nobody was expecting this story.

Garden Spells (Bantam Discovery)

Now this book was also a first from the author. She created something that I had never before experienced. And I loved it. It was new and exciting.
The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel
So if you're looking for a new book to read this weekend, look one of these up.
Take care, Brandie

I enjoy reading too but lately have trouble with my eyes and can't seem to read for long. They eye doctor says it's bz I work eight hours a day on a computer. Dang, if I just didn't have to work, lol! My favorites are biogrophies and mysteries too! I love to figure out what makes people do the things they do and be the way they are! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, I'll definitely be back!

Great book review Brandie. I like to read too and my favourites are mysteries but lately I can't get enough of Clive Cussler books. I love them!!!! Full of adventure and action.
