James Patterson

I have finished the Alex Cross series through book five, and I have six through nine on the TBR shelf now.
I have also read the first two Woman's Murder Club books. I thought I had the third, but it is NOT on my TBR shelf for some reason.
Of his non-series books I have read most. The Thomas Berryman Number, See How They Run (previously titles The Jericho Commandment), Black Friday (Also titled Black Market), Hide & Seek, The Midnight Club, When The Wind Blows, Cradle & All (Previously titled Vergin), The Jester and The Lake House.
I am only missing four books at this time. (That is until he releases another.)

Patricia Cornwell

I have only read one so far... and I caught the second of a three part series.
Listing her books & bolding as I finish seemed like a good idea, til I started to do it.
Maybe at some point I can do that with ALL my authors, but I know it will be time consuming.

My Authors

I aspire to read every book by the authors I really like.
Among them are: Laurell K Hamilton, James Patterson, Tami Hoag, Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, John Sanford, John Grisham, John Saul, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Richard North Patterson, Michael Palmer, Ridley Pearson, Thomas Harris, Robert Ludlum, Michael Connelly, Patricia Cornwell and Larry Bond.
I have read the majority of some of these, but I still havbe LOTS to go.

another tickle test

Amanda, you're renewed by trying new things.

Setting off on an adventurous trip, finding a new hobby, or even introducing yourself to the new neighbors — these are the things that help put that spring back in your step. You're more curious than many, and it's the pursuit of new places, sights, sounds, and experiences that revitalizes both you and your perspective on life.
Because of this, things can start to drag when you get trapped in a routine. Exploring — whether in your own back yard or beyond — keeps you feeling fresh. And why shouldn't it? There's always a new city to discover, a new restaurant to try, or a new friend to make, and they all add to the experience you call life. Of course, there might also be times when you're tempted by some of life's more passive pleasures (watching movies, sleeping late). But ultimately, your true replenishment comes from getting involved and plugging into your keen interest in the world around you.

a test from

The Test:
What Tickles You Pink?

My Answer:
Amanda, Good Friends tickle you pink

Whether you're all laughing hysterically or just hanging out, nothing puts a smile on your face like spending time with friends. You're a social creature who loves the company of others — old friends, new co-workers, or even the guy who works at the corner coffee shop.

You get a kick out of other people, and keeping in touch with family and friends is a top priority. And that's just fine by them. You've got an outgoing personality that makes any gathering more entertaining — whether you're inviting new friends to a book club or primping for a night out with the girls. Have fun!

What do soccer, diamonds, bad accents, and endless blunders have in common? Get a clue by checking out the hysterical new whodunit The Pink Panther in theaters February 10. Watch the trailer now!
