Hi Holly,

Hope you've had a fun summer reading! I'm interested in reading a few you mentioned. Have you read Atonement by Ian McEwan? It's on my TBR list and I have it "next on my nightstand" (along with about 10 others, LOL!).

I should warn you that James Patterson books can get addictive! I've read nearly all of his Alex Cross & Women's Murder Club series. Both quite eerie in subject matter but a breezy, pop fiction read nonetheless.

Happy reading!

Thanks for your comments! I have read Atonement! I read it during a university course in modern fiction quite some time ago. I thought it was fantastic. Surpasses the movie adaptation by miles.

I am learning that about James Patterson. I've resisted starting the Alex Cross series because I have a feeling it's all I'll read for months... and I need a little variety.

Do you mind if I put a link on my page to yours? I always love finding someone who shares my two favorite things: reading and teaching. :)

Hi, Holly. I see that you read a bunch of the Rick Riordan books. Are any of them more sci-fi than the Percy Jackson ones? I would like to try some of his stuff but I am not so much into the fantasy as I am sci-fi (you know what I like).


P.S. Good luck with that job search.
