At last have manged to finish a book it has taken me weeks to get through this I did start another couple of books but just could not settle. I chose this as it is the second book in a trilogy so I thought I would be safe with this. It was a good story not memorable but OK. I is set in New Orleans present day. It goes its the story of a missing teenager. I was a bit disappointed in the book a bit long winded but maybe it was just me. I was only managing about six or seven pagers per night before my eyes went together says a lot for the book I'm afraid. I usually recommend books but with this I would say you could find something better. sorry about this its just what I feel you may enjoy it. 5/10 Till next time. Love

Hi, I have not got a report on a book this time this is really just to let you know that I am still here and trying to read. You have heard of writers block well I have readers block I just don't seem to be able to find a book that is holding my attention at the moment. I have tried three different books the last one I have read nearly 200 pages and am still not into it, its a Linda Fairstein book it got off to a great start then changed to a long drawn out effort and last night I decided reluctantly to put it down and look around for something else. Hopefully I will find a book today that will get me reading with some enthusiasm again till then.

Good Evening, have now finished my book, I wanted to get it done as I said in my main blog as I want to start something new tonight in bed. I was given this book by a friend. This is unusual for me I usually choose my own books. I had seen this book in Waterstone's and noticed it was the winner of Richard and Judy's Summer reads. I really enjoyed this book. It was a great story and had you wondering for most of the story is it a mystery is it a thriller or is it a science fiction. I am not going to say which one it turns out to be as it would spoil it for you and you should read this lovely book. The characters are well written and very believable. The story starts right on page one and keeps the pace up all the way through. I don't suppose I would have read this book if it had not been for my friend giving it to me. I would recommend this book and give it ****
Till next time Love Joan.

Sorry about the move to a new HTTP but I had made a mistake when I started this blog and it was causing me a lot of bother so could you please sign back in as one of my followers and that will be it sorted.
Welcome To My Bookcase.
Hello and welcome to my new books blog. I have been writing a book journal for the last eighteen months on AOL journals but as you know we have been thrown out of there so this is my new home. I write a short review of all the books I read usually every week or so depending on the length of the books and the size of the type I hate small type takes all the enjoyment out of a book for me, if fact I check the size of type before anything else. I read mainly thrillers but you never know what will be next. At the moment I am reading 'Written in Bone' by Simon Beckett not quite finished it so I will be back in a day or so to write up my first report. I hope you will join me here and let me know what your are reading with any recommendations you might have as we readers are always looking for new authors. So till I get my book finished I will close now.
Written In Bone.by Simon Beckett
At last I have managed to finish my book Written In Bone. I should have been done with it days ago but I have spent so much time on my pc playing about with my blogs that by the time I get upstairs to bed my head is splitting and I am ready for the land on nod. I digress, the book, this is the first one of this author I have read, a friend over on Shelfari recommended this author and am so glad she did.
The book takes place on a remote Hebridean Island. It has a great plot and very interesting characters. There is a storm raging all the way through and it creates a great atmosphere . It moves along at a good pace and keeps you going right to the last pages and I mean the last page. Enjoy. Going to do stars this time not out of ten like I did over there so this one gets.. **** stars.
The book I am going to start tonight will be
No Time For Goodbye by Linwood Barclay.Take care and happy reading Joan.
