I joined this reading challenge and now I am wondering - what in the world was I thinking? This is the busiest time of the year! I LOVE to read and I ALWAYS have a book going - but at this time of year it is going to be a true challenge to read all the books I listed. I have finished two of them however, and it is time once again to bestow upon them the infamous (or un-famous, depends on how you look at it!) Eggy awards. So here goes:
The Last Jihad by Joel Rosenberg
This book was loaned to me by a friend who really wanted me to read it. She knows I love to read. I took it cautiously because it must be said, I don't really enjoy political thrillers. This book is about an attack on the United States by extremist Muslims. What is particularly eerie about it is that it was written about 9/11 before 9/11 happened. In fact, the whole introduction to the book tells all about that. And it was an interesting read. What I didn't enjoy was the
many, many characters in the storyline. It was very hard to remember who everybody was and what part they played in the story. The story centered around a particular man who's personality I found it hard to relate to. In the end, I give this book 2 eggy's.
Freefall by Kristen Heitzmann
This book is about an actress who has an accident and has amnesia. She can't remember anything from her past. And of course there is a knight in shining armor to rescue the damsel in distress. The setting takes place in Hawaii. I always enjoy Kirsten Heitzmann's writing. It is easy to read and although the storyline is predictable I always enjoy her strong character personalities. Her writing works for me. And the fact that the setting was in Hawaii made it even more fun. I give this book 3 eggy's.
That does it for now. I have actually added a book not on my list that I am enjoying very much. You'll be hearing about that one next time.
