Book Review-The Time Traveler's Wife

Weird..This book was not really what I expected. It took me a while to even be interested in the book, it was confusing and I was appalled at the authors choice of crude language. But I continued on reading. I actually became a little more interested in the book the more I read, but still I wasn't quite sure if I liked it or not..The book was a little sad to me, sad that Clare wasted most of her life waiting and wondering about Henry. Her childhood was ruined as well as her elderly life waiting for him..I didn't like the love affair between the past, present and future Clare's and Henry's..I thought the author could have done away with the crude language. All in all I guess after reading my own review I wasn't extremely impressed with the book, although it was very interesting..

Book Review-Happy Potter and The Deathly Hallows

This is the second time I have read this book, I hope it still counts. I Love Harry Potter!!! I have finally convinced my husband to be interested in them and he is really enjoying them as well..The second time there was so much more that I paid attention to, in fact the first time I read it I think I was still in awe from how the 6th book ended that I didn't pay much attention to some important facts that I caught the second time reading it. I'm sorry I don't like to review this book because there is so much that I don't want to spoil for other readers..
This lady is an amazing author, I wish there were more!!!

Book Review-DECPTION POINT by Dan Brown

This book was a great book, very much an attention getter. This book takes place in Washington and is is based around a Presidential campaign. There are dealings and deceptions with NASA and some main players in the White House.. When a couple of scientists find out about the deceptions they are targeted to be killed so that the secret never gets out.
Dan Brown is such a smart author-I have really enjoyed his other books, the DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons.
Challenges that this book counts for are, Genre, Library, Winter Reading,

My New Book Shelf

I got a book shelf for Christmas...Since we moved into our new home I have had all my books boxed up waiting for the perfect bookshelf. Well I decided there is no such thing right now and I will just get something until I can find what I really want. I was sick of all the books being boxed up.. It won't hold all my books or the encyclopedias but its a start..
Here it is....
