Book Stuffs

It has been slow since the last entry I did. School started to bog me down but since I graduated a month ago I have read 7 books in about 4 weeks. Here they are but minimal reviews this time.

The Last Boleyn: Karen Harper

  A good book about Anne Boleyn's sister and the entire family. Goes through a lot of the family "history" and shows what could have happened. Overall, a good book 4 stars out of 5.

The Romanov Prophecy: Steve Berry

    This was an amazing book!! I love history but I had never read anything by this author and this book was great. I enjoyed the twists and turns. Almost as good as Dan Brown but I think Berry is actually better!! 5/5 stars!

Sex and the City: Candace Bushnell

  A good book but the series was better. I finished this in four hours and it was a quick read but not something I would read again. Good for a laugh but thats about it. 2 stars

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister: Gregory MaGuire

  Another good book by MaGuire. This one was set in Holland and very well written. I think I am going to give Wicked another try but have not decided. This book gets 4/5 stars.

In Cold Blood: Truman Capote
 This one was a surprise. The movie put me to sleep but I liked the book. It deals with the murders in Arkansas back in the 50s and Capote's role in finding out what happend. Overall a good read. 3/5 stars

Stonehenge: Bernard Cornwell

  This was the first book I have read by this author and I loved it!! Such a rich read and full of description. It deals with the Druids and what they may have been about. It was a bit bloody and sickening in some spots but it was well worth the read in my opinion. 4.5/5 stars

The Red Tent: Anita Diamant

  Wow! This is the one I just finished today and it was amazing. I have never read from her stuff before but the look into the biblical characters that she talks about was amazing! I think I am going to read more from her so I need to do a search. Any ideas on this author or suggestions? 5/5 stars

17 down 33 to go!!
