books are breath


A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :) 

Review: NYPD Red 2 by James Patterson

NYPD Red 2 (NYPD Red,# 2) - James Patterson, Marshall Karp

I will keep this one short and sweet. I am still a JP fan. I will always love the Alex Cross books. I still avidly read the Women's Murder Club books. I will not be wasting my time with any of these others because the writing has definitely suffered in the last several years. The attempts at humor in this one were horrible and actually made me cringe a couple times. No suspense, no thrills or chills. Just a cheesy pseudo mystery.
