I am E_bookpushers and I am addicted to books. I have to thank my mother for my addiction because one of my fondest memories involves bedtime stories. No, I am not talking about Dr. Seuss, Bernstein Bears or Madeline, those were daytime learn to read books, but I am talking about Tolkien, Richard Adams and Asimov…
Thanks to my mother’s open mindedness I did not grow up a genre snob. While I tend to read and enjoy SF/F in its various permutations, romance and its sub-genres I also read and enjoy westerns, murder mysteries etc. If a book can capture my attention, spark my imagination; carry me into a different world/reality than I am willing to give it a try. So bring on your recommendations so I can update my TBR list.
Well apparently my brain has decided it needs to revisit JD Robb as a sort of comfort read. As I was reading this and seeing Leonardo, Mavis, Peabody, Eve, Roarke, Feeney, and Summerset as they first start settling into the core of this series it was like going home again. Their interactions, the police procedure, the heartbreak Eve endured as she tried to prove what she knew to the be truth was very intense. I had a great laugh out of the fitting/designing/hair/skin session with Eve's panic and how she gritted her teeth to cheer up Mavis.
Looking forward to when I have time to re-read the next one.
