What Do YOU Say Is A Must Read In A Lifetime?

I love lists…. little check boxes to see where you land…  those ridiculous addicting quizzes on Facebook that tell you what House you are sorted in, that movie star you are most like, or the one that predicts what will happen in 2018 for…

100 Books To Read In Your Lifetime

    I was snooping browsing around and found this link to the list of Amazons 100 books to read in a lifetime.  I thought the list looked interesting and being a sucker curious about such things I decided to try this myself.  Thank…

Books & Beans: Left Neglected by Lisa Genova

Books and Beans is a book discussion I host at a local coffee shop once a month.  This is our second month doing this and this mornings discussion (with a great cup of coffee) was with the book Left Neglected by Lisa Genova. If…

Morning Meanderings… I wish I had Book Pics By The Pool

It’s Sunday Morning.  I returned in the very early morning hours this past Friday from 10 glorious days in St Lucia.  It was sun, and fun, food, laughter, tears (of course), and friends.  It took me from running in 26 below weather on January…

Still Me by Jo Jo Moyes

Jo Jo Moyes had me with Me Before You all those years ago… the follow up of After You did not spark such a light in me, but held me for what I think turned out to be this moment… this moment where Jo…

Interview With The Vampire by Ann Rice

Ann Rice has been on my hit list for quite a while.  She feels to me like one of those authors you should experience at least once.  I tried reading this one a long time ago and it didn’t take.   For Christmas, one of…

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green w/ Bookies Book Club Review

Ahhh John Green… you are one of those authors that can do no wrong.  When I hear you have a book coming out my spidey senses tingle and I eagerly await the release date to see what brilliance you are going to add to…

Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda

This book hit the spot and was the right mix of quirky crazy physiological craziness to make me laugh and cringe and SOOOOO glad I chose this book as my first book of the year.  ~Sheila   Paul Strom is so excited.  He is…

Morning Meanderings: My Crazy Amazing Encounter with Sue Grafton

  Good morning.  Or Afternoon.  Or evening.  Wherever you are and whenever you are reading this.  It is morning here in Minnesota on this exceptionally COLD day.  The coffee is brewing and I am capturing a few minutes to myself before my day explodes…

The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand

There are some constants in life that you can cause you to breathe a little easier because you know they are there.. or they are coming.  Elin Hildebrand’s book releases are on of these constants.  She is consistently good in her writing, and consistent…

SON by Jack Olsen

I admit, I have always been a bit fascinated with true crime.  That – I realize feels weird to say.  How to put this… the human mind is a fascinating thing, when you add in whatever makes psychopath’s do what they do… and usually…

Deep Dark Descending by Allen Eskens

Yes, my Esken’s gush continues from yesterdays posting of The Heavens May Fall.  A brilliant writer who I have found to capture a bounty of talent within a binding.  Allen Esken’s never ceases to surprise me. ~Sheila   Detective Max Rupert has never come…
