January Reading Review

2007 is off to a good 5 books in the month.

Island Of The Sequined Love Nun by Christopher Moore - 8 *'s

I brought this book with me on vacation to Scotland and it made the extremely long plane ride go by much faster. As with the other titles I have read, Christopher Moore delivers another wacky story. I thought Roberto, the fruit bat, was a blast, especially in his aviator sunglasses.

If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern - 10 *'s

Another fantastic story by a very talented author. I thought this story was sweet, funny, sentimental and thoroughly entertaining. When I started it, I thought the book would focus on the relationship between Elizabeth and her sister. Discovering the truth of Ivan was a surprise and the story kept me riveted until the end.

The Princess In Training Manual by Princess Jacqueline de Soignee and Divas Don't Fake It by Erica Orloff - 8 *'s

I normally don't go for short stories, but I found these two gems quite refreshing and entertaining. Full of sharp wit and laugh out loud moments. Not sure which I would rather be; a Princess or a Diva. Can I be both?

K Is For Killer by Sue Grafton - 7 *'s

Storyline was a little more convoluted than the earlier books in this series. I wasn't able to connect any of the dots like I usually can. The ending came off flat for me, but I look forward to seeing what Kinsey finds herself into next.

Shop Till You Drop by Elaine Viets - 6 *'s
The story was a little campy but I enjoyed watching Helen struggle with the everyday problems of making ends meet, trying to catch a killer and find a new man. I have more books in this series that I am looking forward to trying out.
