Bel-Air Dead by Stuart Woods

AWESOME- this book was filled with more action like you are used to in a Stone book. I didn't want to put the book down to find out what happened next, but you have to go to sleep sometime!

This is #3 of 2012 Book Series Challenge Book #20

Strategic Moves by Stuart Woods

More action, less sex.....yeah I enjoyed it. Stone is just becoming more evolved and a deeper character. I like these books b/c they are so fast to read and just easy to get lost in the world of Stone and Dino!

Lucid Intervals by Stuart Woods

Yeah again.....what can I say. A lot of people have a hard time with Mr. Woods giving Stone such an interesting sex life. They can't stand to read it, but if it didn't have the sex in it I would think what's happened to Stone?? That's the character! Stone could give Hugh Hefner a run for his money. And the idea that any woman would be able to say "no" to him....baffles me.Seriously I always enjoy the books because the antics of Stone and Dino just make me laugh. If these two were real, New York would just have to watch out for itself. It's insane.

The Hours by Michael Cunningham

I have to start off by saying I've never read anything by Ms. Woolf. And from this book I'm tempted to read her biography. How hard of a life it must have been feeling and or needing to accomplish something as hard as writing a novel. To some authors I'm sure it's just an every day thing to crank the pages out, but to have to deal with your alter ego.....shew that's a mess.I also must say that I think you must be of sound mind and a non-depressed person to read this book, because in some places it just got me down. Way down too. The hours are just passing us by. Seriously, I'm freaking 38 and can't tell you where the time has gone. Why is it as adults the time flies by but when we're children the phrase: It will take till Christmas to get here and that means a long time? When we as adults know it's around the corner? I'm glad I joined up for this ring and totally forgot about being on it.Now off to the next person!

Kisser by Stuart Woods

Book 17 of the Stone Barrington Series. I swear if there was an "Elaine's" I'd be eating there everyday.
I think Stuart Woods is the funniest guy I've read. Although his books are mystery, his ideas about women, well they may be like that in the upper East, but down here in the south. Or maybe I'm just too sheltered. Anyhoo, Stone is great. His situations are always insane. I still enjoy reading them though and look forward to being caught up!

Paradise Valley-Robyn Carr

I started this series last year and I really enjoy listening to it. Although the books give a synopsis of what it's about, since I'm sure they have to tell you a little about the book anyway. It's not like one story after the other, it feels more like one long continuing story that so far is lasting 19 books! It's a huge family of characters and it's like you never leave Virgin River. You never miss out on any of the characters developments or stories. I love it! On of the best series that I've "read" in a long time.

This is #6 of the 2012 Book Series Challenge-book 7.

New Series-I think I've found

Title: Believing the Lie by Elizabeth George
Release Date: January 10, 2012
Inspector Thomas Lynley is mystified when he's sent undercover to investigate the death of Ian Cresswell at the request of the man's uncle, the wealthy and influential Bernard Fairclough. The death has been ruled an accidental drowning, and nothing on the surface indicates otherwise. But when Lynley enlists the help of his friends Simon and Debrorah St. James, the trio's digging soon reveals that the Fairclough clan is awash in secrets, lies and motives.

So I looked up Elizabeth George on and found that she has 17 books in this series including this one coming out. So I have found a new series for TBR of 2012. Yep that's what I'm going to do for 2012, as well as catch up on all the other series that I read and or introduced to. HA!
