18 TO GO

Years back then, books never kicked a joule of interest on me until one day a friend of mine encouraged me to read at least one. From then on, I began loving it-- reading through lines, flipping pages to pages. Honestly, one problem I usually encounter in reading novels are the flamboyant words used in it.That's why, I always see to it that I  have a dictionary on hand that would serve as my back-up in times I meet unfamiliar words in a book. Ridiculous isn't it?

Just last year, I started collecting novels of all sorts. Actually, I'm not too particular with authors. For as long as it has an intriguing story and an eye-capturing cover, I would definitely purchase it.

Out of 22 novels I have at home, I only had read 4 of it.

Starting of with Fern Michael's LETHAL JUSTICE, my very first. I quite forgot what the story was all about but two things for sure, its highly imaginative and so entertaining. Fast-paced and jam-packed with action.

Money. Betrayal.Vengeance. That's all it is.

Next on my list is OAKDALE CONFIDENTIAL by an anonymous author, my favorite. A novel on solving the most enrapturing murder case. And as they seek for answers, more intimate secrets from the characters' past life were unveiled leading them to a bizarre sequel of occurrences which they had never anticipated. 
It's indeed scandalous and mind-puzzling. A novel you'll surely gonna like.

Everything on this book was mysterious, from the title and author itself, up to its back cover where I discovered a micro chip or something, sealed  within a paper. I really don't know what it was or how it works but I'm sure the 'thing' was freaky confidential. Weird! ;-0

Let's pause a bit on stories of contemporary settings. Now, I have here a medieval-type love story that weaves history and passion together in a remarkable tapestry.
HIGHLAND PRINCESS, a creation of an award-winning romance historian author, Haywood Smith; and beautifully woven tale that delivers a rich fascinating plot and fine narrative drive. It was so compelling, so  moving, that the characters stick with me for months afterwards. 
Its a story of a courageous princess determined to win back her family castle, who then unexpectedly fell in love with her foe. Rand be inspired of how these two fought in their greatest battle for love.♥
Honor.Pride. Family. Action. Fun. Romance. All in one!

Though not too interested, I was compelled to read this non-fictional book of Darcy O'Brien entitled Murder in Little Egypt, as required on one of my major subjects.
The author did a great job of structuring it for suspense-- fascinating in its terribleness! Written meticulously as bounded by facts from reliable sources, making it the most horrifying true story of family murder of 80's.
The story talks on a father who turned diabolic because of money, alcohol and fame, letting hinself commit a deed worth suffering-- killing his two sons. ;-(

Lately, I started reading SWIMMING TO CATALINA, a marvelous work from such adroit story teller, Stuart Woods. Still on the 11th chapter and hopefully be through reading it this summer.

Happy reading!

I am glad that these books aren't something like Twilight or Vampire Diaries. You know how obsessed teens are with these kinds of books.

Although I read a lot of novels, I am unfamiliar with these. That's how vast the world of literature is. There are just so many authors and novels that no matter how much you read, you'll never get a hold of the numbers.
There are just too many stories in existence.

Action, thriller, mystery are a few of my favorite genres.

Happy reading! ^◡^

I would love to try and read Murder at Little Egypt. It's not that I'm always a constant reader of Stephen King's and a fan of horror *slash* mystery fiction, but it gives me an enthusiasm to go and flip its pages and have my eyes fixed.

In any sense, continue reading. I'm glad some individuals would care for us and teach us new things in life. A new found friend, indeed.

Followed you back, dear. :)
