I did like them! I had them on my wish list and when you recommended them I had to request them for the library and go get them. Both of them were awesome! I think there's one more I haven't read yet. I'll have to track it down! Thanks for the recommendation chickie!
Yeah, they left at the crack of dawn this morning and sadly, the thing I missed most was just reading a little bit each day! Isn't that sad? LOL. I feel sorry for you. Get stocked on the books and avoid her like the plague. When do you come back?
I'm glad I read alot of the trendy books, just because I read them doesn't mean I have to jump on the bandwagon and endorse them. People will do that all on their own. If anything I can say how much I hate them! LOL. The Anna Quinlen book was a joke, you are right. I finished The Shack and reviewed it and that's what I love. That review might irritate people. I can see what you were saying about the controversy but after reading it, I think it's totally ridiculous. The book was okay for me. I reviewed it higher simply because I had to admire the author for bringing such controversial topics to light. Personal I think he was right on so many levels, fiction or no fiction.
