Okay so this series (Wheel of Time Saga) has taken forever to read. "Why?" you might be wondering. Well I started getting into this series when I was 16. I'm 31 now. I read all of them but every time I thought that I had finally finished Robert Jordan would release another one. Now that he has passed away, there is someone else finishing up the series. I absolutely love this series even with having to wait forever before the next one was released. I fell in love with all of the vivid characters. I was pulled into each side story of each character. Now while I'm raving about how wonderful it is, there are some downsides to it. Robert Jordan had a tendency to fill in space at times or really go into detail on everything, "I mean everything", clothes, weapons, fighting styles, facial features, how people walked even. Now it's great that he does do this on one hand (it does paint the perfect picture of what he's trying to relate to you), but completely stinks on the other hand (takes forever). This isn't one of those books (at least with me) where you can whip it out and just start reading. There can not be any distractions going on in the background,well not during the boring parts. While I'm reading the parts that really pull me in I have to gobble up that part of the story. For me some of the things could have been left out and while reading those bits it takes me forever to get through, when I do get to the parts I love, I zoom through it, devouring every ounce like it won't be there tomorrow. I'm so happy there's more of the alright woohoo parts then the oh my gosh not this again parts. Over all I'm giving it a 4 our of 5. ^_^

I just finished reading Divine Evil by Nora Roberts. The story revolves around Clare Kimball, a sculptor who moved from her hometown of Emmitsboro, Maryland where she becomes the celebrated artist of the century. Even though she is highly successful she cannot shake the nightmares and the past haunts her.
Clare returns to her hometown to confront the nightmares that have haunted her and finds love while learning what transpired those many years ago and what really happened to her father when she was a little girl.
Divine Evil is a fast easy read. If you love mystery and romance you will love this book.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies This book was so great! I loved it. Okay so if you like zombie movies, books or whatever and you have a love for Pride and Prejudice, this book is a must read. Okay so I don't get into Zombie movies that much but I do like 28 Days Later , Shaun of the Dead and seeing Milla Jovovich kick toosh in the Resident Evil series is just plain awesome. The other gory ones not so much. Anyhoo, this book is fast pace and Elizabeth & Jane fight off Zombies with a cool Samurai sword is wow! Very cool book. I didn't want to put it down. I wonder if Jane Austen would be proud or horrified. Now that I write about it I think I'll get it up on my kindle and read it again.
Okay so this is my mom and I saying what we read that we loved and were sad to see end, which books we read and that were a total waste of out time I mean we rejoiced when it ended. A little bit of fiction, some thought provoking reads things that bring out our intellect. ^_^ Hope you enjoy.
