What have you read lately?

Here's a list of the last three books I sank into:  

  • Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks
  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
  • Top Secret Twenty-One  by Janet Evanovich.  
These books were all totally different reads (love story, serious and true, funny and myterious) and I enjoyed them all!

The Longest Ride was a book about a younger couple and an older couple and the love that they shared.  They went back and forth in the book with their stories and how they fell in love.  The oder couple Ira and Ruth take you back in time on how they met.  Ira is in a terrible accident and hangs onto the memories of him and Ruth to stay alive.  The younger couple Sophia and Luke met and start a story of their own.  Sophia is a senior in college and Luke a cowboy are from different background and worlds but can't shake each other from their thoughts, so their story grows!  Check out the book today and read it.

Unbroken: A World War II Story is about a man named Louis
 Zamperini.  It started out by telling about his life and growing up in the United States and becoming a famous runner.   But then one day he decided to enlist into the military and become an airman.  World War II took place between 1939-1945 and it told about the many trials that the airman faced when flying and what happened if they crashed.  It was a lot harder back then to find someone that crashed.  When Louis plane did goe down in the ocean and then they were captured you will go through the torture that these men faced back in the war.  It is horrific what they put up with.  I have to say I don't know if I could do what they did.  I also have to say that these men are brave and courgous and I have more respect for them then ever after reading this book.  It really opened my eyes to the world.  

Top Secret Twenty-One is the 21st book in the series.  I would highly recommend starting with the first book One for the Money
and go from there but you can jump in at book #21 because the author always gives a little recap of the main characters in the book just in case you haven't read the series.  Yes, I've read all 21 books so far and for the most part they have all been fantastic.  There were a few that didn't pull me in as much but it didn't stop me from gettting the next book when it came out. I've have been caught up for several years now so I have to wait until she writes a new book about every 6 months or so.  In this book Stephanie Plum who works as a bounty hunter for her Uncle Vinne is helping out her HOT friend Ranger throughout the book and they run into to plenty of problems along the way.  Through her bond job, her and her partner Lula are looking for Jimmy Poletti who give them a run for their money.  Along with gaining a roommate, Randy Briggs who isn't  on the top of her roommate list.  But what's a girl to do for a guy in need.  It's always a crazy time with these characters finging the bad guys.  Have fun reading Top Secret Twenty-One!

Pick up a book and read!
