I love to read. I love books. I like to talk about books and recommend them. I read everything including cereal boxes and junk mail! I heard once that if you're not reading at least 3 books at a time you're not reading enough! This blog will keep track of the books I've read and whether or not I liked them. It will be a little bit of everything from Christian fiction to Science fiction and fantasy. Feel free to participate by suggesting books to review and giving your comments. Occasionally I am given free books by Publishers in exchange for a review. I am not told how to review them or compensated in any way for the review.

The Casual Vacancy by J K Rowling

 Worth reading until the end. At times I didn't want to finish it but I stuck with it. I didn't really like any of the characters and mostly I didn't care about the town and it's issues. But by the end I did. She has a great ability to create atmosphere. The characters in Harry Potter were memorable because of the specialness; in this book the characters are memorable because they are so ordinary. She is a great writer. Even though this is an adult book a lot of the main characters were still teenagers dealing with teenager angst things.
I hope she lightens up a bit in her next book but even if she doesn't I'll probably still read it.
