I’m in a book dry spell and it’s driving me crazy! I keep starting something new, getting about halfway through and losing interest. I hate when I don’t have something good to read! A good book motivates me, gives me something to look forward to when I need to be motivated.
The last good series I read was “The Hunger Games.” I went on to read a Lisa Gardner book. Eh, just OK. I’m in the middle of a David Baldacci book that’s well written, but the story is making me depressed. I’m in need of a pick-me-up theme right now, not something on grieving and dysfunctional teenagers. This one needs to be finished when I’m in a better place…
I found “Never Smile at Strangers” by Jennifer Minar-Jaynes and it was a pretty good story with good writing. But, of course, it’s her first book. So now I can’t go through and read all of her other books.
I scoured Amazon.com yesterday, trying to load the kindle with something, anything that would grab me. I picked up “Daddy’s Girl” by Lisa Scottoline. It’s OK, but losing me in the middle again. Argh. Her next book looks great! But it’s not out till April. The next Nora Roberts book that looks good isn’t out till May. And the next Charlaine Harris book isn’t out till May. Hurry up!
I noticed a friend on Facebook is starting a new Christopher Moore book. I haven’t read him and I know we have similar taste, so I’m going to give it a go. He has a ton of books out and he’s supposed to be funny – two things I’m looking for right now. So I’m crossing my fingers!
Any other suggestions?
