Current Read: It

Hello Page Turners,

I hope you are not afraid of “It”

I am currently reading “It” by Stephen King. Now I’m not a huge Stephen King fan but I’ve seen the movies and read some of the books. However, I’m a huge thriller movie fan. I saw the preview for the movie but had no idea there was a book for it until I saw it in the store. So I began reading a few pages and decided to pick it up.

The book is HUGE. It has over one thousand pages. But as an avid reader, that does not scare me. It motivates me. I’m not even half way through the book and I’m creeped out, in a good way.

The book is currently telling the story about how a few teenagers, now adults are being called back to a small city in Maine. A promise they made years ago is now coming back to haunt them. Small children are once again being killed and the memories of the horror the teenagers experienced is returning as they prepare to battle this horror once again.

I am currently meeting each teenager, now as adults and my goodness it is chilling. But I’m loving it so far. As soon as I finish this read, I’ll let you know my thoughts.

Join me as I read, It.

Discussion: What is your favorite thriller of all time?

Book Review: The Couple Next Door

Hello Page Turners,

I had the pleasure of reading a book a while back that I just could not put down. I am a lover of a good page turner and I have recently fallen in love with psychological thrillers.

The Couple Next Door is a book that has you guessing from the beginning. Anne is a new mother that has been suffering with the typical new mother issues. She and her husband are invited to a party next door but they have no babysitter for their young daughter. Her husband convinces her that they can leave the baby in the home by herself while they go to a party next door. But when Anne goes to check on her daughter for a second time, she’s gone missing. From there the book takes a few crazy twists and turns. When you think you know what has happened to baby Cora the book takes a crazy turn that you will never see coming.

The Couple Next is a five star read that will have you up all night trying to figure out where is baby Cora.

Current Read: Murder Games

Hello Fellow Page Turners,

One of my current reads for the week is Murder Games. I am a huge James Patterson fan so there aren’t too many of his books that I pass up unless it’s Romance. Murder Games is really interesting and I’m just getting into it. It seems as thought someone is killing people based of what they do to others. I haven’t figured out the game yet but it’s definitely a pager turner.

Coming Soon: The Last Show

Hello Fellow Page Turners,

If you didn’t know, I am a HUGE fan of Michael Connelly. I’ve read most of his books. So I’m excited to tell you about his upcoming release. The Last Show is introducing a new character, Renee Ballard. The book releases on July 18th, which is tomorrow. If you love a good crime novel, I know this one is going to be a page turner.

Reserve your copy for tomorrow!

Book Review: The Last Mile by David Baldacci

Hello Fellow Page Turner,

So this afternoon I finished The Last Mile by David Baldacci. I know that he is a well known author and has been around for some time. I am just now getting into him. I started the Amos Decker Series with The Memory Man being the first book in the series and fell in love. His books are four stars I cannot put down. Read my review below.

The Last Mile starts off with readers getting to know Melvin Mars. He’s been sentenced to execution for the murders of his parents. Just as he is about to be executed, someone else confesses to the crime and the authorities are forced to investigate.

At the end of The Memory Man, Amos Decker has joined a task force put together by FBI Agent Bogart. Readers were introduced to him in The Memory Man. The case of Melvin Mars is brought to the attention of Amos Decker and he is quickly intrigued by the case. The team then jumps in head first time find out if Melvin Mars really did kill his parents.

The Last Mile is a quick read, with easy short chapters that keeps the reader going. The story takes readers all the way back to the 60’s revealing a crime that was covered up and a couple that was running from their past. There are a few twists and turns in this story readers won’t see coming.

I give the story four stars however, I didn’t like the ending of this book just like I didn’t like the ending of The Memory Man. I don’t think this author does a good job of keeping the suspense all he way to the end. The last six-eight chapters are forced to make sure everything is brought together. I find myself speed reading to finish those last chapters. Overall, it was a well written story and I will be reading The Fix. which is the next book in the series.

This is the second book in the series but, it can be found on Amazon here.

So, have you read anything by David Baldacci? What are your thoughts on this author or this book?

Welcome to Curling up with a Page Turner!

Hello Fellow Page Turners!

IMG_4960Welcome to my first blog post. If you don’t know me, I have been in the literary industry since 2004. I am a published author of eighteen books. I’m also a literary mentor but my first love is reading.

My favorite author is James Patterson. I was introduced to him by my late maternal grandmother back in 2005. I’ve been in love with him ever since. As I said in my About Section, I read about 150-200 books a year. I love to challenge myself to reach my goals each year. I haven’t missed a beat yet.

I am currently reading about fourteen books at one time. I am a hoarder of paperbacks but sometimes I am in the mood to read on my iPad. I have so many books in my home library that I need more shelves. SMH.

Anyway, my plan with this blog is to post book reviews, discussion questions and much much more. I will also be supporting my literary community as best as I can on this blog. So don’t be surprised if you are hearing from me three to four times a week about new books. I LOVE TO READ.
