    Norealityhere--hi--okay I did just read that one. Darn it--now I'll have to wait.

    And yes I liked it a lot because it was from a different main character's point of view.

    I liked being able to see the usual main character Harry Bosch from someone else's point of view. Very interesting--and brave--of the author to do.

    Sex Wars (Marge Piercy) is the latest of hers I got from the library. I started reading it and then life got busy (progress reports, son home for spring break). I need to renew it and start again. I was reluctant to start it because it is longer than a lot of her others and the last long one I read (Gone to Soldiers) took me forever to read. But it was worth it. I still want to find Small Changes. I'll have to try inter-library loan.

    I have The Third Child on my library hold list - the synopsis on the library site intrigued me. I'm dying to read Vida but unbelievably, not a single library in my province has a copy, and it doesn't exist on the Canadian Chapters/Indigo site. I guess I'll try Amazon next.

    Sorry to burst your bubble. Connelly's one of my favorites, too.
    I checked out the synopsis and the reviews on Amazon. Sounds like Harry will be a peripheral character. I did like Mickey Haller, though, so I am hoping this one doesn't disappoint.
    Have not picked it up yet. Am still reading Say Goodbye by Lisa Gardner. The author has a lot of good, gory detail she gets into. Kind of like the TV show, Criminal Minds, in novel form. The protagonist is a female Feebie.

    I was just thinking who would play them in a tv series and I came up with Benjamin Bratt for Morelli..she is always describing him as sturdy but thin.in fact i kind of see the two as a "miss congeniality" bullock/bratt mix lol for some reason...

    I just started Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich (Plum Between the Numbers series). So far, so good.

    i liked it a lot. i needed a plum book for so long that it couldve probably been bad and i still wouldve loved it. i was having lula withdrawals

    and a visit from diesel is always a good break from the ranger/morelli thing

    Re: What are you reading?

    I'm finally reading Twilight and I am more than 1/2 way through (I started it on Saturday and didn't read any yesterday). I love it! I actually feel like I am right there in the story and experiencing everything the characters are experiencing. I love stories that do that! I know of 3 books in this series. How many others are there? I know of Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse.

    The books in the series, in order, are Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.

    Ahem. I'm holding my hand in the air here. I tried a couple of Janet Evanovich's books and couldn't finish either of them. I prefer natural humour and dry wit over schtick, though, so I am not inclined to appreciate crazy grandmothers in general.
