Book Review and Deer

I have read a couple of books lately and thought I'd review them for you. First was Half Broke Horses. It was written by one of my favorite authors from last year Jeanette Wall, who wrote Glass Castle. Both books are excellent. She is a really great author, she stories are interesting and really easy to read. This story is an incredible one of her Grandma and all the things she went through growing up. She was a teacher and a rancher and a mother.

It is a great book, I recommend it.

The next book I read (or almost finshed) was the hour I first believed. It is by the well known authour Wally Lamb. I have read his other books, She's Come Undone and The Hour I First Believed and really liked them. They did have sad parts but it seemed balanced. But this book was too sad. I really like a good story, and it is well written and he is a great writer. But I just found it to be too many bad things that happened.

Oh yeah, and last night Darryl was barbecuing our dinner a deer with big horns came running up the back pathway. It was so cool. Too fast for us to get the camera though. Kind of like the time there was a moose in our park.

What about you? Have you read any good books lately?

Till Tomorrow

The cover of Half Broke Horses looks quite attractive.

The hour I first believed really doesn't look so sad, so it would be quite unexpecting if you start reading that.

Thanks for sharing, thanks to you I've already discovered some really good books in the past !
By coincidence I just posted a book review too.

I'm about a third of the way through The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown, the author of The Da Vinci Code. So far it quite good. It's keeping me coming back for more. It's another story of the character Robert Langdon so it's similar to Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons in it's style and plot line.

Thought I'd mention it.

Hi Jenn,

I did read the Glass Castle and enjoyed it! I cannot believe for the life of me that it was a true story. There are a lot of tough people out there that overcome hardships in life.

Hope all is well with you guys,
