For the Love of Books

Men Are Better Than Women

was a pretty good book.  It was obnoxiously funny, although it was pretty vulgar.  It became a little redundant at times, and was hard to read because the chapters were so singular, but I wouldnt recommend it to someone who may be offended by the language or the misogynistic views of the author.  Overall I would give it a 3 out of 5.



I'm now about 90 pages into a really great book called Deadlock by Iris Johansen.




Synopsis

"With lightning-fast pacing, startling plot twists, and shocking betrayals, #1 blockbuster bestselling author Iris Johansen is at the top of her game with
DEADLOCK

What began as an innocent mission


Emily Hudson is a renowned archaeologist who travels the world to save priceless artifacts from theft or destruction. Her best friend and partner, Joel Levy, is always at her side—until one day, when her entire crew comes under attack. Joel and Emily are held hostage by a sadistic captor who is determined to find the missing link to a legendary treasure. For weeks they struggle to survive against terrifying odds, pushed to their limits—and beyond…


has become a desperate race for survival…


John Garrett has worked for the CIA, British intelligence, and whoever else was willing to pay for his services. This time, a Washington operative hands him what at first appears to be just another assignment: to track down, and save, Emily and Joel. But it quickly becomes much more, especially when Garrett finds himself drawn to someone as dauntless and bent on revenge as Emily. Soon, they’re catapulted into an astonishing adventure in which nothing—and no one—is what it seems. And lives hang in the balance as one man and one woman unravel the explosive truth behind a conspiracy hidden for generations."



Also on my library wishlist are:
House of Reckoning by John Saul,
One Foot In The Grave by Jeaniene Frost,
Breathless by Dean Koontz,
 Blood Game by iris johansen ,
Deeper Than the Dead by Tami Hoag, and
 Blood Ties by Kay Hooper

Besides all that, I am so excited for Thanksgiving! And for Black Friday.  I made plans with my beautiful sister-in-law to go out shopping and hopefully we can find some good stuff!  I'm thinking about getting my hubby a nice scarf.  He always steals my black scarf whenever we go out and have a need for our pea-coats (which is rare) but this winter we are going up to North Carolina, and he is going to visit a friend in New York in January, so he'll definitely be in need of one then.  And I also want to get some little pink converse for my youngest sister! SO CUTE!




I also really want to find some things for my neice (3) and nephew (8 months).  Any ideas?



well, thats all for now!




Ciao ciao!
