Upcoming reviews this week!

I've been so busy with my business and the kids going back to school that I have not been able to post my latest reviews. Here are some reviews that are forthcoming this week:

The Passage by Justin Cronin (3 Stars)

This one started off great, but then the book jumped one hundred years into the future and lost my interest. I finally finished this on audio but I don't think I'll be reading the next one in the series.

The Bread of Angels by Stephanie Saldana

This book definitely kept my interest, and the author provided an interesting glimpse into Damascus, Syria. She was very melodramatic in her storytelling, but I enjoyed it regardless.

Guess which book I'll be recommending? Yes, the Marriage Bureau for Rich People was a pleasure to read. Nothing felt contrived and the character development was wonderful. I loved beginning each chapter, it was like opening a new gift. I would read anything by this author.

I have read two of these three - I loved Marriage Bureau for Rich People as well. I really liked Bread of Angels. Other friends have recommended The Passage but I really don't think I would like, I have been slow to pick it up.

I would love for you to say Happy Birthday to my daughter who just started a blog - today on her birthday...
Outpourings Of A Soul.

I hope you will have time to visit one or both of my blogs: LibrarysCat and Never Forget !!

Have a great weekend!

The Passage is great but I understand that not everyone will like it, the "jump" as you describe it is pretty disturbing.

Great post however I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic?
I'd be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Appreciate it!

You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually something that I
think I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and
extremely huge for me. I am having a look forward to your
next publish, I'll attempt to get the grasp of it!
