My Twentysomething Life

I Do, Make, Read, Watch, Eat…

January

The Witness–Nora Roberts I really loved this book.  Nora Roberts has become one of my favorite writers.  This book is one of her most recent releases.  The story is more of a thriller than anything else of hers that I have read.  I really enjoy her style and her ability to tell a story.

The English Patient–Michael Ondaatje I wanted to read this book because I saw the movie first.  The book itself was beautifully written.  This may be one of the few times, however, that I have liked a movie more than the book.  At some points the story seemed to drag, but it is told through stories and I really enjoyed that.

Gravity–Tess Gerritsen I just discovered Tess Gerritsen this last year and I have read almost all of her books.  I don’t know if any of you watch the TV show Rizzoli and Isles on TV, but she created these chracters in a series of books.  I the last year I have read all of her Rizzoli and Isles books and most of her stand alone books.  I am reading one currently and I only have two more left.  Tess Gerritsen is a great writer.  The stories that she writes are mainly medical mysteries.  My favorite book of hers is called The Bone Garden.  It was fantastic and I highly recommend it.  This book was about deadly spores contaminating astronauts in space.  At first it sounded dumb, but it was very suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole book.

Life Support–Tess Gerritsen This Tess Gerritsen book followed a young emergency room doctor, so it was very medical.  Usually this isn’t what I would enjoy reading, but Tess Gerritsen makes it hard not to.  She tells the story very plainly and makes it very easy to understand even with the medical jargon.

Memoirs of a Geisha–Arthur Golden I really loved this book.  Definitely my favorite that I have read so far this year.  The storytelling was beautiful and really drew me in.  I found myself really careing about the main character, Sayuri, and what would happen to her.  I highly recommend this book.  It is part historical fiction and yet it reads like a fairy tale.

Nobody’s Princess–Esther Friesner I just stumbled upon this book at the library and picked it up.  It wasn’t really what I expected.  It was a quick read, but I found that I kept waiting for it to get good.

Bloodstream–Tess Gerritsen This Tess Gerritsen book was very scary and suspenseful.  And I don’t want to tell you much about it because that would ruin it.  So just know that it was fantastic and I highly recommend it.
