August reads

9/03/2009 10:46:00 PM / Posted by Kris /

Sorry i have not been around, school and kids are running me ragged so I have not been online. And I racked up a fine on my library account so I cannot check out books from the library which totally sucks (no money to pay the fine at the moment). But on the bright side, I forces me to read from my tbr pile, which is a good thing. The thing that just irks me is the waiting lists that I have been on where I was like 110thin line for the book and now i am 10th and am probably gong to have to re-request it once I get my fine paid and start over on the list. oh well. I have plenty to read.
Moviewise, Hubby and I have been making our way through the Robin Hood BBC series, and really enjoying it. We watched a strange movie last night called Blueberry Nights. It was slow but interesting. Good cast, Jude law, Norah Jones, Natalie Portman and Rachel Weisz. I was expecting a movie kind of like Elizabethtown, but this one was kind of like that but not as good. Norah Jones met Jude Law in a cafe that he runs and they become friends. she leaves to travel and "find herself" and meets Natalie Portman and Rachel Weisz along the way, who teach each her a different lesson and then she ends up back in NY with Jude Law and more of a solid person instead of the basket case she started out as. interesting but a little slow. 3 out of 5

Wow, 25 books!!! That is crazy Kris. No wonder why you don't have time to blog, your to busy reading! Hee hee!

That totally sucks about your library. I just finally got Club Dead, the third Sookie book from the library. I was on the wait list from hell for that one. I know how those wait lists can be!

I see you read quite a few Karen Rose books. How did you like Don't Tell? I was quite impressed by it.

Seriously, that must feel good to have accomplished so much. Did you put a nice dent into your TBR?

Great list!

How did you like books 2 and 3 in the Resonance Mates books. I see those are re-reads for you. I liked the first one ok and I think I actually bought the 2nd (I'll have to double check that) when it came out but haven't read it. It was almost TOO much sex for me. I can't believe I just wrote that but I did! lol

Did you like the BIA's books by Samantha Kane? I love those.

Hey Jill - I have already lost about three books i had on hold. I really like Karen Rose, she writes great romantic suspense.

Christine - I am working on it, but still have a couple from the library that are not due yet.

tracy - I really like the RM series. The fourth book just came out and is about Grady Prime. I The BIA books are very hot too. I was happy to read At Love's Command because i loved watching Derek fall. Cannot wait to read kate's niece's story (cannot think of her name at the moment).

So are all the RM books 4 on 1?

Comment by Kris on 9/09/2009 6:30 PM

you mean 3 on 1, no. the other two are two guys and one girl. Davin is an "alien" and human with a human female (one of the O'Hara kids). and Jaci is a "alien' female with two human cousins. not sure about the latest book, have not gotten to get it yet.

Yep, 3 on 1 that's what I meant - sorry. :) I'll have to see what I have and check them out. :)
