The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult

Hi there, it's a nuisance having no PC, I miss my scrapping! Meanwhile, I'm enjoying my first love, books! :)
I am already done with 3 books, so in the order in which I read, today I'm reviewing a book called "The Tenth Circle" by Jodi Picoult. Frankly speaking, I didn't enjoy it, too dry and serious for my taste, that does not mean it isn't nice. It has a good storyline, with very complex and deep characters, it's a great thriller, but for me a great book is the one that makes me feel good, and this book didn't, I felt as if I was left hanging in the end, with such intense drama, the ending was abrupt and I felt baffled. The book also got a bit boring somewhere in the middle.
I have read two other books by the same author, "Vanishing Acts" and "Picture Perfect".  Vanishing Acts left me with the same feeling s as this one, but Picture Perfect was a nice thriller about domestic violence.

All in all I didn't enjoy it and would not recommend it, but that's just me, maybe you would want to read it and if you have let us know :) I would love to know what you thought of this book.

Recipes for easy living by Curtiss Ann Matlock

Hi there, been catching up on my reading and having a blast, luckily I have got some great title s this time from my very fav book stall, it's actually a used books stall at the end of my street and since I can't really go and buy brand new books(I'm on a tight budget right now) so used books it is. The drawback to this of course is that I don't have much choice.
Anyway, Recipes for easy living by Curtiss Ann Matlock is a marvelous book about a young girl called Cornie, it captures the inner struggle s of a child budding into a young woman, and it revolves around Christmas, what timings right! :) the craziness of siblings, can't live with them can't live without them, all seemed magical as well as real. I'm giving this a thumbs up and add it to your reading list request.
The author has a very inviting blog as well, curtissannmatlock.com

Far from Home by Lyn Andrews

Been catching up on my reading, all of my kids are in school FINALLY! 
My goal is to read any novel/book that I can get my hands on and just read read and read! I had it on hold since the twins were born! so you can imagine my delight :)

About to finish on my second book, but lets talk about the one I just got done with.

Its called Far From Home by Lyn Andrews, its not the usually historic romance with lots of steamy scenes, in fact its a book about strength and courage when faced with dire situations. Like you have been pushed against a wall and there is nothing you can do except fight back.

Set in the 1920s in Ireland, reminds you of a time when people had other things to do instead of FB! :)

If you are like me and feel motivated and good about your lot in life after reading books where heroines go thru tough patches in life and come out a winner then go ahead and read Far From Home, its worth your time :)
