Just a Blog about Books

Hello!  It's certainly been awhile.  However, I just wanted to pop in and link you to this amazing blog called Just a Blog about Books.  It's really nifty, and I like it.  There are a few different girls that write for the blog, and they all have such different, though insightful, things to say about the books they read.  It's just a lot of book reviews, but it gets me thinking about reading something I've never heard of before.  Most of the book titles and authors are some that I've never come across, so it's nice to get that kind of exposure.  Check it out, if you feel so inclined.  :)

Over and out,

Heat Wave by Richard Castle

Richard Castle is the mystery writer I can enjoy!  Mary Higgins Clark could never keep my attention long enough, and Betsy Brannon Green was a tad too slow, but Richard Castle's writing is witty, engaging, and very exciting!

Heat Wave was a great read.  I'm glad I didn't figure it out in the first ten pages--that always scares me off, fast.  It kept me guessing, and was good enough for me to stay up several hours past my bedtime trying to get to a stopping place.

I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel, Naked Heat!  Bring it on, Castle!


Haha... Yes, I'm a really big fan of the show Castle on the ABC.  These books are the books published by Castle in the TV Show, but a couple of weeks ago I found out that ABC actually published books!  I eagerly rushed to the Denton Public Library as soon as I got home and found the first book.  I'm really glad it was good, and that it wasn't disappointing like a lot of books-from-TV tend to be.  I'd really like to find out eventually who actually wrote this book, since Richard Castle is a fictional writer.  I haven't been able to figure it out.  Oh, well.  Here's to hoping my library decies to buy Naked Heat sometime soon!
