Caught


What’s Jack up to? He’s admiring all the snow that I’m coming to loathe. Enough already with this winter thing. Is it over yet? Come on, another snow storm? Another snow day? Waa Whine...


So, I’m happy to say Katie was not telling tales when she made Lisa Kleypas’ Blue Eyed Devil one of her top picks for 2008. I finished the book the night before last and I can’t tell you all how disappointed I was that it was actually over.


There I was at 11:30 at night looking around with at least a hundred other unread books in my house, but sad that I didn’t have another Lisa Kleypas just like this one to begin reading right at that moment. Don’t you love it when that happens?
It was refreshing to read a straight contemporary for a change. No mystery, magic, shape shifters or vampires. No deep tales of angst or melancholy. Just a good romance with an intriguing heroine and sexy rake (yep, a contemporary rake) of a hero with all sorts of trouble getting in the way of their love.


The tension was kept so high. There was one suspenseful moment where I was so into the book and it just so happens something fell in another room of the house and I actually jumped. Eek! Like a little girl. That never happens to me. (note to self: keep the tension high)


Well done! Thanks for the recommendation, Katie. I’ve turned into a huge Lisa Kleypas fan. The woman can write right.


Best,
Kwana

Kwana, I know exactly how you feel! I just picked up a copy of Suzanne Brockmann's latest and I can't decide if I want to read it as fast as possible or savor it. I just don't want it to end!

Kristen Painter said...

I love a book like that! And I know what you mean about looking for another to read after it. Nothing seems to measure up.

Louisa Edwards said...

You know, I haven't ever managed to read Lisa Kleypas' contemporaries, but I keep meaning to. Thanks for the rec! At least now I know which one to start with.

Sarah, Kristen I don't know what to read next. Ugh!

Jax Cassidy said...

Sounds like a great book! I'm sure if it got you so absorbed, it's a definitely good suggestion for us...

I asked my voracious reader/co-worker to check out this book! I have sooo many waiting to be read...... xo

I just love that "never want it to end" feeling! I was JUST telling one of my girlfriends about that feeling today, the book(s) in question? The Harry Potter series. Is that sad? I'm a grown woman, but I love those books!

Joyce said...

Kwana, thanks for sharing. I think I need to get over to the library this weekend. I'll post what I'm reading tomorrow (LOL..). xoxo

Must get through "The Pillars of the Earth" first. It's good, but really...976 pages? 976?

Kwana said...

Tivi, not sad at all. I just finish Twilight recently. Loved it.

Deidra, That is a huge undertaking. I have that book. It's so good but I stopped around page 400. I must get back to it one day. It's so heavy.
