Top Ten Meme - Favorite Book Read So Far This Year.

Once again Jillian has picked a great category for this week's Top 10 - Favorite Books Read So Far This Year!!! So thanks Jillian @ Random Ramblings (by the way she has changed her URL so if you haven't already double check that you have the correct one in your readers)


Top Ten Picks is a weekly meme where I would be posting just about that -- my top 10 picks! Every week, there will be a different and specific topic given.I will then choose 10 of my picks from that given category, create the list, and post them up here!

Since half a year has already passed, for this week, I thought it would just be appropriate to have the topic on our favorite books so far this year. These are the ones you gave 4-5 star ratings to. These are the books that you would love to add to your bookshelf, to re-read, and the ones we recommend to others to check out.

This is a little hard for me because I read soooooooo much and I don't keep that great of track of the books I read outside of the reviews. But here goes, in no particular order

  1. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins my review


  2. The Life of O'Reilly by Brian Cohen my review

  3. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks my review

  4. This One is Mine by Maria Semple my review

Review & Giveaway: The Life O'Reilly By Brian Cohen

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
The Life O'Reilly, A Novel By Brian Cohen



Here's what the back of the book says:


At once a bittersweet love story and a young lawyer's journey of self-discovery, this auspicious debut delivers an emotional wallop and will move readers in unexpected ways.

On the outside, Nick O'Reilly has it all: a high-flying legal career, as a partner of an elite Wall Street law firm, and financial security, with an apartment overlooking Central Park. Having grown up in a working-class family, as far back as Nick can remember this was his dream. But at the age of thirty-six, after several years of sacrificing his personal life for professional gain, Nick has started to ponder his future and consider the mark he wants to leave on society both professionally and personally--his legacy.


After being chastised in the press for turning a cold shoulder to the community, the firm calls upon Nick to help rehabilitate its image by handling its first pro bono case. Nick is asked to represent Dawn Nelson, a domestic violence victim who is fighting for custody of her young son, Jordan. A far cry from Nick's specialty of defending the misdeeds of Corporate America, it is up to Nick to set Dawn and Jordan on a path to a better life. But Nick gets much more than he signed on for, as Dawn forces him to reassess his life choices and, ultimately, be true to himself. Only when Nick finally realizes what is truly important in life does he face his toughest--and possibly final--challenge: a battle for his own survival.


Exploring the flaws of being human and the importance of controlling one's own destiny, The Life O'Reilly reminds us of how precious life is and how quickly and tragically it can change. Written with great empathy, The Life O'Reilly is an emotional and unforgettable tale that will challenge one's expectations of the modern love story and introduces a poignant and sensitive new voice in fiction.

Here's What I have to Say:
Though it starts out a little slow, this novel takes you on a realistic journey through the life of Nick O'Reilly. I instantly fell for Nick, as I am sucker for "the good guy". And ultimately Nick is a good guy who's slightly misguided choices lands him in a life he doesn't want. I was literally brought to tears, both of joy and sadness, by the rapid, but again realistic, turn of events. It is not often that an author can make a work of fiction so plausible, and still entertaining to read. This book reminds me of The Friday Night Knitting Club, by Kate Jacobs, in that right away I wanted the main character to get what they wanted and to be happy. The book does get a little intense in a few spots (with some language) but ultimately a great love story about family, friends and the meaning of life. This book seriously made me do an assessment of me and mine and I think it will have you do the same. The only negative I can think of is that at times the descriptions (of appearance, and surroundings) can be a bit long-winded.

I will announce the book selection on June 1st If you are new to my site, and don't know about the Busy Moms Monthly Online Book Club - click here to learn more!



House Rules by Jodi Picoult
HOUSE RULES is about Jacob Hunt, a teenage boy with Asperger's Syndrome. He's hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, and like many kids with AS, Jacob has a special focus on one subject--in his case, forensic analysis. He's always showing up at crime scenes, thanks to the police scanner he keeps in his room, and telling the cops what they need to do--and he's usually right. But then one day his tutor is found dead, and the police come to question him. All of the hallmark behaviors of Asperger's--not looking someone in the eye, stimulatory tics and twitches, inappropriate affect--can look a heck of a lot like guilt to law enforcement personnel -- and suddenly, Jacob finds himself accused of murder.

HOUSE RULES looks at what it means to be different in our society, how autism affects a family, and how our legal system works well for people who communicate a certain way--but lousy for those who don't.



A Reliable Wife by Robert Gollrick
Rural Wisconsin, 1909. In the bitter cold, Ralph Truitt, a successful businessman, stands alone on a train platform waiting for the woman who answered his newspaper advertisement for "a reliable wife." But when Catherine Land steps off the train from Chicago, she's not the "simple, honest woman" that Ralph is expecting. She is both complex and devious, haunted by a terrible past and motivated by greed. Her plan is simple: she will win this man's devotion, and then, ever so slowly, she will poison him and leave Wisconsin a wealthy widow. What she has not counted on, though, is that Truitt — a passionate man with his own dark secrets —has plans of his own for his new wife. Isolated on a remote estate and imprisoned by relentless snow, the story of Ralph and Catherine unfolds in unimaginable ways.


With echoes of Wuthering Heights and Rebecca, Robert Goolrick's intoxicating debut novel delivers a classic tale of suspenseful seduction, set in a world that seems to have gone temporarily off its axis.

Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik

From her sensational sleeper hit Patty Jane's House of Curl to her heartwarming novel Welcome to the Great Mysterious, Landvik has won the hearts of readers everywhere. Now she returns to her beloved, eccentric stomping ground of small-town Minnesota where a most eclectic, and engaging group of women share love, loss, and laughter.
Sometimes life is like a bad waiter -- it serves you exactly what you don't want. The women of Freesia Court have come together at life's table, fully convinced that there is nothing good coffee, delectable desserts, and a strong shoulder can't fix. Laughter is the glue that holds them together -- the foundation of a book group they call AWEB -- Angry Wives Eating Bon Bons -- an unofficial "club" that becomes much more. It becomes a lifeline.
The five women each have a story of their own to tell. There's Faith, the newcomer, a lonely housewife and mother of twins, a woman who harbors a terrible secret that has condemned her to living a lie; big, beautiful Audrey, the resident sex queen who knows that good posture and an attitude can let you get away with anything; Merit, the shy, quiet doctor's wife with the face of an angel and the private hell of an abusive husband; Kari, a thoughtful, wise woman with a wonderful laugh as "deep as Santa Claus's with a cold" who knows the greatest gifts appear after life's fiercest storms; and finally, Slip, activist, adventurer, social changer, a tiny, spitfire of a woman who looks trouble straight in the eye and challenges it to arm wrestle.
Holding on through forty eventful years -- through the swinging Sixties, the turbulent Seventies, the anything-goes Eighties, the nothing's-impossible Nineties -- the women will take the plunge into the chaos that inevitably comes to those with the temerity to be alive and kicking. Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons depicts a special slice of American life, of stay-at-home days and new careers, children and grandchildren, bold beginnings and second chances, in which the power of forgiveness, understanding, and the perfectly timed giggle fit is the CPR that mends broken hearts and shattered dreams.

Corked: A Memoir by Kathryn Borel
Meet Kathryn Borel, bon vivant and undutiful daughter. Now meet her father, Philippe, former chef, eccentric genius, and wine aficionado extraordinaire. Kathryn is like her father in every way but one: she's totally ignorant when it comes to wine. And although Philippe has devoted untold parenting hours to delivering impassioned oenological orations, she has managed to remain unenlightened. But after an accident and a death, Kathryn realizes that by shutting herself off to her father's greatest passion, she will never really know him. Accordingly, she proposes a drunken father-daughter road trip. Corked is the uncensored account of their tour through the great wine regions of France. Uproarious, poignant, painfully introspective, and filled with cunning little details about wine, this is a book for any reader who has sought a connection with a complex family member or wanted to overcome the paralyzing terror of being faced with a restaurant wine list.


PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE IN THE GADGET AT THE TOP OF THE RIGHT SIDEBAR!

June Book Club Discussion Questions

***SPOILER ALERT*** If you have not yet read this book but intend to you may want to finish it before you read the discussion questions. There are some spoilers herein!
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

Seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alientated from her parents, especially her father...until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him. Ronnie's father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church.The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story of love on many levels--first love, love between parents and children -- that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that love can break our hearts...and heal them.

Book Club discussion questions: (the answers in pink are my own personal responses)
  1.  On a scale of 1 (lamer than lame) and 5(super fantastic) rate the following:
    1. Style of Writing - 5 out of 5
    2. Development of Characters -  4.5 out of 5
    3. Flow of storyline - 4.5 out of 5
    4. Over all book - 4.5 out of 5
  2. Given the same circumstances, would you have made the same choice regarding hiding the illness that Steve did?  I believe that I would do the same thing. It was the only way for them to love him for who he was and for him to know the real people his children had become. It is sad that they found out the way they did, but I think it was for the best. Ronnie, especially, will not have to go through life having to wonder what sort of relationship she could have had.
  3. What was your most favorite part? When Steve boarded up the piano when Ronnie said she didn't want to see it anymore. He was doing whatever it took for her to know that he loved her more than those keys.
  4. What was your least favorite part? Everything about Marcus. Once again their is just one character that drives me nuts. The sad part is that it is all out of jealousy. Marcus doesn't have the things the others have, and not to material, but faith, self-confidence, and happiness. And he just wants to make everyone as miserable as him.
  5. What did you "not see coming"? Galadriel turning around. I was sure she was a lost cause, sadly. I was very happy to see that she was able to see the bigger picture after her accident. I was also a little surprised to learn the Marcus and his gang didn't just witness the fire, but actually started it.
  6. Do you think Will made a good choice in transferring schools?  I have to say that for the longest time "John" was my favorite Nicholas Sparks character (from Dear John) but Will might at least tie for my favorite. I love that he gave her the time to find her own way so that she would know she could before he came back to her.  
  7. What was the most important value Steve taught his children in this last summer?  I think patience was the prevailing theme of the book. He taught them that when something really matters, you have to be patient with it. Patience is something I am constantly working on with myself, as well as trying to teach my children.  
  8. Will you read any more of Sparks' books? I have read several of Sparks' other books - Dear John, The Notebook, and A Walk to Remember. I really enjoy the realistic nature of his stories. It is very rarely ever a "Happily Ever After" and I love the morals he "teaches" without being preachy. I will definitely be reading more from him. I think the next I will choose is The Guardian.

You can post your answers to these questions, as well as any comments and questions to other members in a comment using the link at the bottom of this post. Or you can create a post on your own blog and link back to us using the Linky! Hopefully we can start a dialogue about this book. Please remember that this Book Club is a new concept for me so an constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. I want this to be OUR club not MINE!

I am now Starving for MORE Hunger Games

I was totally dragging my feet about reading The Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins. I was just reluctant because Young Adult books can be so hit and miss for me based on enjoyment and ability to finish the books! It is not always that the stories are not interesting, it just they are too, well, juvenile to hold my attention. Well finally, enough of my gal pals had insisted that I read it. Let me just put it this way, I finished the first one - Hunger Games - in 3 days and the second one - Catching Fire - in just over ONE day! Let me point out that they are both close to 400 pages each! But now I am stuck in an awful predicament!!! The last book in the trilogy - Mockingjay - doesn't come out until AUGUST 24th, 2010!!!!!!!!! And of course Collins ended Catching Fire in an incredible and practically perfect cliffhanger. I mean if you wanted to define "cliffhanger" by using a book example - Catching Fire would be it!! The world created by Collins is enthralling. You are drawn into this story right from the start. Each character is carefully developed. And the story has so many layers it is difficult not to sink right in! Oh and how cool is this - Hunger Games will be a major motion picture at some point next year!!

So here is a little bit about the titles: (PLEASE NOTE: The synopsis of each title gives a little bit of a spoiler as to the outcome of the previous title)

Hunger Games: Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When her sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place.

Catching Fire: Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

MockingJay: Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

I give the first two titles:

And I am sure that Mockingjay will achieve that same level of incredibleness!!! (See the books are so good, I am making up words to praise them!)

DISCLAIMER: I was in no way compensated to publish this post!

Testing out a new signature...

Review & Giveaway: Desire Me by Robyn DeHart

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!
Desire Me
By Robyn DeHart
Book Two: The Legend Hunters
Here's what the back of the book says:


The Legend Hunters . . .


The Men of Solomon's meet in secret, their very existence only a rumor among the best of Victorian society. They are treasure hunters, men of wealth and title, seekers of myths and legends. And no legend is as mystifying as the lost city of Atlantis . . .

DESIRE ME

Years ago, Maxwell Barrett found a map to Atlantis and dedicated his life to the search for the mystical lost continent. But when an alluring woman makes a wager for the priceless artifact, he may have discovered an even greater treasure.
A descendant of Atlantis, Sabine Tobias needs the map to decipher an ancient prophecy. What she doesn't need are the sparks flying between her and Max. He's too devilishly charming to be trusted: The fate of her people is at stake as well as her heart. Yet a ruthless killer also covets the map. Now Max and Sabine must race to decode the prophecy's riddle before this criminal fulfills his deadly mission.


A little about the Author:
Robyn DeHart has published four books with Avon: Courting Claudia, A Study in Scandal, Deliciously Wicked, and Tempted At Every Turn. Known for her unique plotlines and authentic characters, Robyn is a favorite among readers and reviewers. Publishers' Weekly claims her writing to be "comical and sexy" while the Chicago Tribune dubs her "wonderfully entertaining." A two-time Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice award nominee, Robyn has earned 4 star and 4 ¿ star top pick reviews on all her books and Kathe Robin says, "Like Amanda Quick, DeHart [will] keep you up all night.


Here's What I have to Say:
In the first book of the series - Seduce Me - the Legend Hunters are searching for Pandora's Box. In this installment the Legend Hunters have discovered a map to Atlantis. Max sets out on his single-minded mission, but is quickly derailed by the ultra sexy Sabine. She wants to deny her feeling but just can't as they are forced to work together to evade the third party intent on taking the map. The story in intriguing and steamy, but a little slow for my liking. The main characters are well developed but the supporting characters are left a little too mysterious.The third book in this series - Treasure Me - is due out in March of 2011
