I’m sorry to say that I’m not really getting into the Talisman. Really, I don’t know what is wrong with me that I have been having more books I don’t like than do lately. I had some good ones (Subterranean,The Thing, Wait till Helen Comes, etc) and I’ve had a great one (Mountain Between Us) this month but so far this week I can’t get into anything. I hate it. I love when good books keep me company – they are like letters from old friends.
Jade over at “Chasing Empty Pavements” seems to be able to keep with a story whether it is good or not. She writes terrific reviews too. But I can’t seem to make myself keep with something that isn’t holding my interest.
One of the women at work recommended the book “Losing You” about a woman who loses her 15 year old daughter. Reading the blurb about it, I’ve decided to skip it as it reminds me too much of Carlie Brusca and Denise. I don’t need those reminders. “Still Missing” is about as far as I want to go into the whole kidnapping plot. I read to escape reality, not wallow in it. This is why I like sci-fi and ghost stories so much – those kinds of things don’t really happen.
Oh well. I guess I will keep working my way through my “to-read” list on Goodreads until I find one I like. I have over 60 books on there so there has to be a few good/great ones, right?
