February reads

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro 2* (one of the worst stories I've ever read. Only gave it a 2 because I DID finish. I didn't care about the characters or the story, total waste of time.)

Sleep No More by Greg Iles (audio)....couldn't finish. Not sure if it's the reader, may try the actual book.

Trace by Patricia Cornwell (audio) 3* (typical Cornwell, but not her best)

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne 3*, (interesting but unrealistic view of the Holocaust)

The Bitch Posse by Martha O'Connor 3* (dark chick lit)

My Sister's Bones by Cathi Hanauer 4* (very good story about the effects of anorexia on the whole family)

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman 3* (not big on science fiction but this was okay)

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver (audio)3.5*

Nearer Than The Sky by Tammy Greenwood 4* (new author to me, will definitely read more by her)

Best Friends by Martha Moody 3.5*

The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell 3* (too religious for me)

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 4* (different and interesting perspective of the Holocaust than normal, hated the narrator though. Took me a few pages to get used to the narrator).

Range of Motion by Elizabeth Berg 4* (light easy read, but as always with Berg, an enjoyable read)

The Husband by Dean Koontz (audio) 3* (action packed but unrealistic)

Half Broken Things by Morag Joss (couldn't finish, just too depressing!)

What Is Mine by Anne Holt 4*, (good story about kidnapped children in Norway, but I thought the ending was tied up too neatly)

Double Bind by Chris Bohjalin 4* (another good one by Bohjalin)

Lisey's Story by Stephen King (audio) (only half way through so far it's just okay)

The Diary Of Mattie Spenser by Sandra Dallas 4* (LOVED this book, but the ending was a let down after such an awesome story, will definitely read more by this author. Love this time period (1800's) with the Indians and hardships and how different people's outlook on life is compared with today)
