March 2008 Wrap-Up

Here’s my end of the month wrap up:
  1. Ian Caldwell & Dustin Thomason, The Rule of Four –> I enjoyed this one. Some people compare it to The Da Vinci Code. It doesn’t read as smoothly as The Da Vinci Code, but I definitely felt that it was better. 4/5
  2. James Patterson, 1st to Die –> Why did I wait so long to start this series?! It was really, really good. Lots of twists and turns, very enjoyable reading. 5/5
  3. Iris Johansen, Fire Storm –> Good book. Probably not the best of hers that I’ve read, but it was still an enjoyable read. 4/5
  4. Christopher Andersen, Diana’s Boys: William and Harry and the Mother They Loved –> This book was really, really good!! His books read so smoothly. It’s like you’re reading a story, not non-fiction. I highly recommend this one. It’s hilarious to see how much those two got away with as children! 4/5
  5. Philippa Gregory, The Other Boleyn Girl –> I cannot possibly say enough good things about this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I cannot believe that I waited so long to not only buy it but to read it as well. Highly, highly recommended!! 5/5
  6. Jodi Picoult, The Pact –> After hearing such wonderful things about Picoult, I decided to try one of her books. Boy was I NOT disappointed! This book was so amazing! It was so heartfelt and thrilling. It was fast paced yet enjoyable too. Just great all around! 5/5
  7. Anita Shreve, The Pilot’s Wife –> Another new author for me. I found this one to be really great! I was hooked in from the first page and couldn barely wait to find out what happened in the end! Great book! 4/5
  8. Dean Koontz, Odd Thomas –> This one was definitely not one of his better books. I had a lot of trouble staying focused on this one. I don’t know, I just didn’t care much for it at all. It was just okay for me. 3/5
  9. J.D. Robb, Naked in Death –> Good book. Kind of weird setting, and I was disappointed that there was no real explanation as to the technological advances. But overall, it was a really good start to what I hope will be a great series! Looking forward to the next one! 4/5
  10. Nancy Pickard, The Virgin of Small Plains –> WOW! This book was awesome! I absolutely loved it!!! Great, great, great!! So suspenseful with lots of twists and turns, just a great book!! 5/5
