Thursday Memes

What’s the best book you read this year?
If you followed my blog over this past year, you learned that James Patterson was my all time #1 author, however, in May of 2010 I was introduced to a new author that I felt was equal to Patterson.  Since May I have read 2 more books by this writer and presently reading his 4th and can honestly say that he has taken the #1 spot.  That author is Vincent Zandri.  And the book that hooked me was:
Other than the ones that ended up in the DNF pile, there were a few that I could put in this category but I know that these 2 had different thoughts around the blogosphere but were not enjoyable to me:

Some of my 5/5
Jackson, Lisa Most Likely To Die
Sheehan, Jacqueline Now & Then
Walker, Bill A Note from an old Acquaintance
Rose, Karen Silent Scream
Keener, Rachel The Memory Thief
Dixon, Dianne The Language of Secrets
Baron, Michael The Journey Home
Thayer, Nancy Beachcombers
Sheldon, Sydney After The Darkness
Stevens, Chevy Still Missing
Samuels-Young, Pamela Buying Time
Gardner, Lisa Live To Tell
Patterson, James Private
Like I mentioned above, I am currently reading the newest book by Vincent Zandri, The Innocent, which I will be posting my review for on January 1st.  What better way to start off the New Year but to review a book from my new #1 favorite author?  Oh I know,…………………to have him stop by and visit with us all.  So mark your calendars…Vincent Zandri will be here January 1st to let us know what we can look forward to in 2011.

From Lori’s site:
  It struck me recently how much time I spend on this computer every day, blogging, chatting or playing games on Facebook, emailing friends and relatives, making cards and calendars, etc. etc. etc.
  We depend on each other for book reviews, giveaways, encouragement, friendship, but how well do we really know each other?
  So that is what this meme is all about, getting to know each other.


1. Did you get what you wanted for Christmas?
And more…..matter of fact….hubby shocked me with an 8 day trip to Aruba!!
2. Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?
3. How will you spend New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day this year?
We haven’t decided yet.  Either with friends or a
quiet dinner, just the 2 of us, having shrimp cocktail and lobsters.
happy new year

  1. I've never heard of that author before. Cool picks for your favorites, all very good mystery authors. Have a happy new year!

  2. As you know I only named one of each, but, I had many more that could have fit the best and favorite and a few that were on my worst list. Happy Reading.

  3. Cheryl asked me to chime in on the best way to nab my books. Easiest way to simply head to my website,, but you can also head to Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, your local book stores….etc!!!!
    Thanks again Cheryl and thanks for commenting all!

  4. Cheryl guess what…….. I too am thinking VincentZ may become my new favourite, how crazy is that. And because of you I tried him. I have to read Moonlight Falls and Innocent.

    Thank you so much for introducing me to him, I can't wait for Jan 1.

  5. Best: The Trophy Bride's Tale by Cyrilla Barr

    Worst: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

    Favorite: Everyone Loves Elwood by Karen Quigley

  6. Oh..sad to see THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE in the "worst" pile….had been meaning to read that one. Definitely have to give props to James Patterson. He always has something new coming out and usually it's pretty good! Have you heard about the new MG book by him coming out June 2011? A change from the normal but still good… Happy reading!

  7. I was looking forward to reading The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake but I am not so excited now.But I have to check out all your favorites. My TBR just expanded further. *sigh*
