The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes–Arthur Conan Doyle

These are his short stories, I really like them. I like a little mystery. At one time, I thought that Sherlock Holmes was a real person and that Arthur really knew him. Now I realize what I was really thinking when I thought that. Which is that books can really come alive to me. SometimesContinue reading “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes–Arthur Conan Doyle”

The Road–Cormac McCarthy

A story about a father and son in a post apocalyptic world where they are fighting for their lives and trying to find other living people in an otherwise deserted earth. Amazing right up until the end. Truly a  lovely book. The last book that I felt was lovely like this was Water for Elephants,Continue reading “The Road–Cormac McCarthy”

Neon Angel–Cherie Currie

I LOVE CHERIE!!! For those who don’t know her, she was the lead singer of The Runaways. Yeah yeah yeah, that movie about Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. Blah blah blah. NO. The movie was based on this book and this book was based on Cherie’s life. And by based, I mean it’s an autobiography.Continue reading “Neon Angel–Cherie Currie”

Days of Gold–Jude Deveraux

I loved this book. I’m a sucker for romances apparently. Jude writes in a way that isn’t cheesy or classic romance novels where it’s like reading porn. It’s just her telling a story of two people falling in love. Much like that ding-dong Nicholas Sparks, except that instead of people dying at the end, peopleContinue reading “Days of Gold–Jude Deveraux”

Water For Elephants–Sara Gruen

This book is amazing. It was so beautifully written that I was instantly drawn into the story. I won’t even give you a synopsis about it because I want every inch of it to be a surprise! Made me mad, made me laugh, made me cry with joy, and it’s pretty rare a book canContinue reading “Water For Elephants–Sara Gruen”

The Uninvited–Tim Wynne-Jones

Uninvited indeed. This book was HORRIBLE. Maybe this was just his breather book before he continued on with his other, apparently, award winning books, but I just wanted to set this book on fire the whole time I was reading it. It was badly written, the plot was weak, and the characters did things andContinue reading “The Uninvited–Tim Wynne-Jones”

Elvis: Still Taking Care of Business–Sonny West

This is obviously about Elvis and his life with Sonny West, one of his best friends and a member of the Memphis Mafia. I loved each and every second of this book, but I also have a big geek-on for Elvis and anything to do with him, so I WOULD nerd out about it. IContinue reading “Elvis: Still Taking Care of Business–Sonny West”

Life’s That Way–Jim Beaver

Jim Beaver started writing nightly emails to his family and friends when him and his wife, Cecily Adams, were learning and going through her lung cancer diagnosis. Eventually this turned into more than 4000 people reading his email nightly. This book is a memoir of the turmoil and pain they went through the year itContinue reading “Life’s That Way–Jim Beaver”
