#22 Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

This book was amazing. I have been told to read it by several people but due to the vampire theme I had resisted. Well I finally picked it up yesterday and finished it tonight. I didn't want to put it down last night but it was approaching midnight and the kids get up early so I had to. I definitely recommend this one even if you don't think you would get into it. I will be running out to pick up New Moon tomorrow. It definitely deserves a 5/5.

#21 Just Desserts by Mary Daheim

This book was a little difficult for me to get into and I think it was only because the print on the pages was very small and being a fast reader I had o adjust to be able to take it all in. It was a good read with a whodunnit throughout the book. The characters were enjoyable and likeable as well. I give it 3.75/5

# 20 Shoe Addicts Anonymous by Beth Harbison

This was a refreshing chick lit book that I finally got my hands on. The library hasn't had it in regular print and I couldn't break down and buy it so I ended up having to settle with the large print version but it was so worth it. I enjoyed the storyline about the "addicts" gtting together to help feed each others habit and finding friendship along the way. This gets a 4.5/5

#19 Blueberry Muffin Murder by Joanne Fluke

This was a quick and easy read. This book introduced me to the world of Hannah Swensen and her delicious sounding recipes. I look forward to picking up another tasty mystery by Fluke. I give it a 4/5.

#18 Don't Look Down by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer

This book was a monthly read for one of my bookclubs and I must say that it wasn't all that great. I haven't read any of her other books but after this one I may never get around to it. The book was very hard to get into and I wasn't inclined to finish it until I reached chapter 8. The last few chapters were the best and while the ending was nice it didn't leave you with wanting more. It gets a 3.5/5
