Fiction by Dean Koontz.


I always like Dean Koontz. You will never be bored when he tells a story; this is quite a page-turner.

All the Way Home

Fiction by Ann Tatlock.

All The Way Home

This is a wonderful book about a pair of little girls, one Japanese and one Caucasian, who become best friends in the years leading up to the Second World War. I definitely recommend it.

The Choice

Fiction by Robert Whitlow.

The Choice

A great story about the choices facing pregnant teens, both in 1975 and in 2008.

This was a like two books in one; Part One was actually its own novel in a way. So I'm giving it two thumbs up.

A Change in Altitude

Fiction by Anita Shreve.

A Change in Altitude

This was a story about a young married couple who are spending their first year in Kenya. Good book, although I didn't like the ending. (Not that I will give it away...)

Let Darkness Come

Fiction by Angela Hunt.

Let Darkness Come

Good legal thriller. It held some surprises and kept my attention.

Unlike normal people, who would probably read more while traveling, I have been reading less recently. I have a motion sickness problem that makes it difficult for me to read on planes and in cars; also I find traveling with children interferes with my reading a great deal.

Anyways, this book took me longer than it should have to finish, but it was still good.

Fiction by Stephen King.


Okay, this is not Stephen King's best. Graphic grossness and extreme cussing aside, (which you kind of expect from this guy), this was just not a good story.

Or, you could say that the parts that were good were drowned in all the parts that were boring.

Definitely not as good as The Stand or Cell.

The Oracle Glass

Fiction by Judith Merkle Riley.

Oracle Glass

Ah, fiction! How I have missed you!!!

This was a good story, partially based on true events in 17th century France.
