  • The Book Jumper

    This book was not quite what I expected but I liked it anyway. With my love of books, it would be amazing to have the ability to enter any story at any point and see and experience the story first hand. This story shows how important the smallest things and the basic story ideas are important to the finished product. It would be dangerous to think that one small change would make every copy of the story, no matter where or when, become different or maybe not exist at all. This would be a huge job and maybe not as glorious as it seems at the beginning.

  • Little White Lies (Debutantes #1)

    I liked this teen novel about becoming a Southern belle debutante. I have to admit that when I was of a certain age, the idea of being a debutante would have been a dream come true.

  • Long, Lean, and Lethal (Soap #1)

    This was an intriguing murder mystery that centers around a soap opera. Since I have been known to enjoy one now and again, it was a familiar setting. Of course, it ends successfully and with a new romance or two.

    On the glittering set of a popular daytime drama, fantasy and reality are fatally intertwined in a brand-new, red-hot trilogy that continues Graham's successful series of contemporary blockbusters. From the author of "Drop Dead Gorgeous". Author signings.

  • Check, Please!: #Hockey, Vol. 1

    I enjoyed this fun graphic novel. I like hockey and love baking. The idea of college boy who is an athlete and likes to cook, reminds me way to much of my youngest son. However, the crush on his captain is handled nicely and it is fun to meet the varied cast of players. I look forward to the next issue.

    This was a very strange take on the journey of Norma Jean Baker to Marilyn Monroe. While I'm sure some of these "monsters" were very real. Not sure, but maybe that was how Norma Jean saw her life before it spun out of her control.

Determined to become one, shy Norma Jean Baker (Marilyn Monroe) comes to this ghost-town with hopes and dreams. She'll have to face all kinds of monsters to reach her ultimate goal.
