Book Review: The Last Juror by John Grisham


The second (after a Time to Kill) in Grisham's Ford County books and just as good as the first. I love this series and can't wait to read the rest. Grisham blends drama with history and manages to keep you on the edge of your seat from cover to cover. Set at the end of the civil rights era in Clanton Mississippi, two men and one family has a profound effect on the town.

Book Review: Timeless Love by Judith O'brien



One moment Sam is afraid her dad is going to kill her for scratching his BMW than the next moment she is standing in the bedroom of King Edward VI. History comes  alive  like Sam never imagined.  I love time travel romance books and I also love the Tudors.  So this book feels like it was written just for me.  I absolutely loved it.

Book Review: Alex Cross's Trial by James Patterson



James Patterson takes a different turn with his Alex Cross series. During some down time Alex decides to write a novel based on an old family story.  This is the that novel and it is great.  Ben is sent by the president to investigate lynchings in Mississippi in 1906.  Right away Ben gets involved way over his head and finds his life in danger. With the help of Alex Cross's cousin moody and her grandfather Abraham Ben takes on the KKK and racism in the deep south.  I really loved this book and I hope Patterson writes more like this.

Currently...

Reading... The Maze Runner by James Dashner.  The movie is coming out really soon and I can't wait to see it.  The book was a little slow to start but I am now engrossed with it and i don't want to put it down.  I'm about half way through with it and hope to finish it soon.  I need to start reading faster since I am so far behind in my Goodreads challenge.  

Watching... Botched on E! channel.  This reality show stars Dr Dubrow from the Real Housewives of Orange County as he and his partners fix bad plastic surgery.  Each episode has crazier stories than the episode before it.  

Listening... Lie under you by Keke Wyatt is a beautiful song.  If you watch R&B Divas Atlanta than you know Keke and this song.  If you don't watch than you should and you should download this song.  This is a great wedding song.  Also I have been listening to Jhene Aiko.  She blends R&B and hip hop in a real smooth way.  

Dreading...  All of the housework I need to do that I have been putting off.

Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira


Haunting but sad and beautiful all at once. Laurel receives an education in music love and loss. You'll need tissues when you read this.  One of the best books I've read in awhile.  Highly recommended.
