Do You Have a Recommendation?

Do you have that one book stuck in your head?

You know which book I mean...
The one you dream about.
The one that catches you wondering how they're doing until you remember that it was just a book.
The one that you just know you'll read again, even though you may not have given it a terrific rating when you first read it.

This isn't something I think about normally but I will say that Nora Robert's books are usually the ones that do this to me. For instance, I've read the Key trilogy several times and still I'll sometimes catch myself wondering if their business is still going well. Or thinking that I need to stop by and grab a book. It's not even real! but to me it just is.

Another one? Well, in one of the JD Robb books (I'm not telling which one) an entire family is murdered in their sleep. All except for one. She was spared because she had a friend spend the night and went down the back staircase to get a drink and the 'team' missed her. I frequently either wake up to check on my kids or to just walk around the house.

Which book catches you?

I'm sorry...I can't think...too busy laughing from the other challenge we are cohosting but it does sound like a book I would love.

You guys are both pathetic! LOL

I would highly recommend I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb--my favorite book of all time....

pathetically optimistic?
Just remember, Julie... you're in this sinking ship, I mean, boat with us!

You guys are to much.

For me it would be The Godmother by Carrie Adams, I just love the characters and so not my kind of book.

I want to thank Bev from My Reader's Block for her review of "Miss Hildreth Wore Brown" by Olivia deBelle Byrd. After reading her review, it went on my tbr and entered her giveaway for the book. And YAY!!! I won. I recently read it and it was a laugh out loud read. Miss Byrd will be visiting my blog on 4/14 with a giveaway.
