The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

Devil worship, secrets of the Washington DC, and the ultimate word! Dan Brown has once again made his book something you will never forget. In The Lost Symbol Dan Brown opens your eyes to see what secrets make up the nation’s capitol. The book includes murder, history, thrill, suspense, and so many other emotions.
The novel is amazing! It had me on the computer googling what I was reading just so I could see the artwork he added in his novel and get visuals on everything. I never wanted to put the book down even when I was extremely scared. I’m pretty sure if I lived in Washington DC I would see everything in a whole new light.
By the end of the novel I once again had the same eye opening feeling that I did at the end of Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code, the feeling that everything that I know is basically the product of unremembered history. When reading the novel I just really have to suggest that you keep an open mind and don’t throw out any ideas before you finish the wonderful piece of work.
“Reading is a means of thinking with another person’s mind; it forces you to stretch your own.” Charles Scribner Jr.

More and Less…

So… I ended up reading a lot more books than expected, but not all of them were on my list.

I didn’t read Kite Runner and I only read a little bit of Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder. What I did read though was amazing.

I ended up reading Spying in High Heels, Undercover in High Heels(both by Gemma Halliday), Once Upon Stilettos, and Enchanted Inc (both by Shanna Swendson).

These 4 books were perfect for the cruise. They provided me romance, murder, mystery, excitement, and the compelling urge to not put the books down, though I was reading all of these on my kindle.

Look for more posts on these 4 books as I write what I thought about the book in it’s own book review.

Read for a reason

Recently I was talking to my girlfriends and I had a crazy idea for us to share. I told them not to judge me and to just think about it for a second.

I suggested that we start a BOOK CLUB! To my surprise I got quick positive responses. They were actually really excited to read something all together and something good. It also gives us a reason to get together and have fun with each other.

We’ll take turns choosing books and try to get together every 3 weeks or so hopefully having finished the book.

This first book we’re going to read is Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot! A Heather Wells Mystery

Meg Cabot has always been on of my favorite authors starting with the Princess Diaries series, I’m not quite sure if I ever finished that series, but it’s on my to do list.

I think this is a great book for us to read because being a group of girls we get caught up in sizes and what is the right size or not. It’s also a murder mystery, so that will provide a ton of excitement. To know more about Meg Cabot you can either follow her on Twitter at @megcabot and she has a website http://www.megcabot.com
