January found me a little busy with the two book signing events I prepared for, but I managed to read a few books in between. 🙂 This is also going to count for this week’s In the Writer’s House, since my newsletter went out a few days ago. I’ve had fun reading all the comments and replying to them for the giveaway!
The first book I read this month, was written by a writer friend, Bev. Her book A Fire in My Bones was about a woman who lost her husband in an air force accident and they had adopted a daughter. The birth mother wanted the baby back, and so the adoptive mother took off with the baby. The story is about what happens to all the characters involved. It was a great story.
The next book was for the library book club, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. It was ok, but not really my thing. In this one, the main character is an actress and is telling her life story with a young journalist. It was interesting in some places, but the whole Hollywood scene is not my thing, even in fiction.
This month I read two books by one of my favorite authors, David Rosenfelt. I read The Twelve Dogs of Christmas and Collared, both in his Andy Carpenter lawyer series. These books are always great and have some humor in them. As a matter of fact, I laughed several times while reading them and had to explain to my family why I was laughing.
I read one nonfiction book this month, and it was Career Success without a Real Job by Ernie Zelinski. This book intrigued me and was about doing nontraditional work, starting your own business or being an entrepreneur. There was a lot of good information and lots of quotes/jokes throughout.
I read John Grisham’s book, The Whistler, and it was very good. The main plot was about taking down a bad judge and gathering enough evidence to prosecute.
