I have loved books since I was a child. I grew up visiting the library with my mom, and going home with a stack of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries along with biographies of Florence Nightingale, Clara Barton, John Paul Jones, and others. My love of reading blossomed from there. Later, I moved on to Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and, of course, Margaret Mitchell.
On this site, I will be sharing my opinion of the books I’ve chosen, and some that publishers and authors have asked me to review. Unlike book reviews written for a college course, or even some high school courses, where reviews are (or should be) written only in 3rd person, I will be writing in a more personal manner, as if I were talking with a friend. Of course, your comments are invited and welcomed.
For adults, some of my favorite authors, are Daniel Silva, Mary Alice Monroe, Mary Kay Andrews, Adriana Trigiani, W.E.B. Griffin, Clive Cussler, David Baldacci, Anne Rivers Siddons, Dorothea Benton Frank, Mary Higgins Clark, Kate Jacobs, Kathleen Morgan, Sue Grafton, Diana Gabaldon, Kristina McMorris, Karen White, and Nelson DeMille.
I will be reading the books of these authors, and many others; and sharing a curated list of my favorite books, as well as providing links to the website of each author whose books I promote. I sincerely hope you enjoy this site, and will visit often.
