I HATE Janet Evanovich,,,,well, not SO much!

Okay,,,,,you get to know me? I'm a big time Reader! I'm sure I read more books than most publishers.
I'm addicted, okay? If there were a 12 Step programs for Readers, I'm sure I'd qualifiy to be at the head of the line!

So,,,here's my latest Favorite Author........Elizabeth George. I now finished TWO of her epic novels and I'm dying to get my hands on the REST of them! Ackk. If you're into mysteries/crimes/who "dun it's?-She is my new "Drug of Choice." And I was JUST finishing HER installment of, "A Traitor to Memory" when my son brought me the latest Janet Evanovich book......

Ughhh,,,I hate Janet's books! Why, you may ask? Because I'm in LOVE with ALL the characters.....Stephanie, Lula, Connie, Ranger, etc, etc,.......These books are FUNNY, yes, but basically "Fluff." And unreal, and delightful and "oh my Lord, I'm NOT going to get anything ELSE done today,,,,because ......well, I've bonded~! With the WHOLE group and WHAT, prey tell, are they INTO NOW?

So, best intentions aside, I "tucked into" the latest book.Oh yeah, Janet made me laugh, smile, anticipate and WANT sooooo Much more!  But truly? On a scale of 1-5,,,,,,,this book was a 3. I love the charaters, as stated, the plot was fun, but NOT as fun as some of "Stephs" quests.. I wanted MORE Grandma,,,,More Lula, MORE Ranger...........

So,,,,,Elizabeth George? Yeah, you'd be getting into HER and her cast for the LONG HAUL,,,,,,and I cannot get my hands on her OTHER Books/Epics fast enough!

And Janet? Well, dangit anyway! This wasn't the BEST of the series, but it WAS fun and I'm thinkin' about the whole "Cast" for the NEXT book in this sequel........I may need to send Janet a few insights and thoughts on the "neighborhood!"

Now,,,,,,where WAS I and WHERE is my Glue gun????

Happy Wednesday! Carry on!

Hugs and Love,


  1. Honey I guess I am just going to have to send you my book to read so you can really enjoy laughing and a mystery too. lol
    Your so sweet I read your comment about your gorgeous lamp and no way could I take her from you. But I will write you tomorrow an email and thank you from the bottom of my heart for offering her to me.
    What a sweetheart you are to me and all your friends.
    I have decided that when I get well we are going on a trip. Where we end up who knows but it will be fun getting there.
    Working on a post to be aired in the morning. Update on my latest crazy happenings.
    I love you and I need to send you and Lulu
    my home phone number

  2. Girlfriend, you ARE an addict. When I get reading I can't do anything else. that's all! Glad you're having fun. From one parallel universe of reading to blogging. We are a funny bunch!
    Good news! You can now walk thru the basement, yeah!!!

  3. Shell, I'd be right up there with you. When I get a book that's ALL I do is sit and read until it's finished. I love Janet too but haven't read any of her new ones. I'm into the China Bayles series by Susan Wittig Albert - excellent but you really should start from the first one and read them through. Each one is about a different herb but they are wonderful mysteries. I've given the whole set to my mother-in-law and she loved them too.

  4. I've read all of Elizabeth George's mysteries - she is an amazing writer. And, like you, I can't resist a new Janet Evanovich!
