The Reading Binge Continues...

Since my last blog I've finished 3 more books and started a 4th.

The Trouble With Valentine's Day by Rachel Gibson was a good book, I liked Kate and Rob and the story was a fun read. But, if Ms. Gibson used the words "HUMMER" and "Duchon Lounge" one more time I would have thrown the book at a wall--for some reason this was real distracting for me. I also knew the "Hummer/HUMMER" joke was going to show up somewhere in the book. I love the Tom Jones references, one of the mothers of a childhood playmate was President of the Tom Jones Fan Club when we were kids and they had Tom Jones stuff all over their house.

In the Prince's Bed by Sabrina Jeffries, I can officially say I am sick of full-size Regencies and REALLY, REALLY need to start avoiding them. I've always been hit or miss with SJ, but this was neither hit or miss, just kind of so so.

Remember My Heart by Janis Reams-Hudson, I enjoyed this, but I like reincarnation stories, the fate and finding each other through time thing always gets me drawn into the story. For some reason the stalker part of the story reminded me of Karen Robards' One Summer, one of my all time favorite books.

I've not only been on a reading binge, but I've been binge cleaning the house, spent all day Monday cleaning like a lunatic.

Have a great day, happy reading.

Hey Sybil, no, it was the first. The second looked better, so I picked it up today, and I hate to admit I picked up the 3rd too.

I started the third and got distracted by Before Sunrise before I managed to get a few pages into it. Nothing to do with the book, just my weird guilty pleasure Diana Palmer illness.

I so want to read it! And shall, some time before I die ;).

Tell me if you liked the second one. I really recall enjoying it and being surprised since I didn't enjoy the first one. BUT I do really enjoy Sabrina Jefferies. In the Prince's Bed is the only I recall disliking enough to not finish it and for the most part the other range from A to C's for me.
