Books I am reading

I am an author/series glutton.  There, I've admitted it.  
When I find an author I like, I read just about everything they've written.
Right now, Cecelia Ahern's novels are my obsession. There is no system or particular order to my readings or reviews of the books.
I am assigning shamrocks for my reviews.  The best review will be  5 shamrocks.

Here is what I've read so far-
THE TIME OF MY LIFE-

I read this one in spurts over a weekend.  LOVED IT!
What a unique idea; this woman's life personified comes calling on her!  I have to wonder if my life would be a worn out, smelly guy too?  Sometimes it sure feels like it must be so!

THE GIFT-

I did enjoy the concept of this novel, and I was compelled to continue reading.  However, the ending was not fulfilling and felt contrived.

PS I LOVE YOU-

Yes, yes.  I know this was made into a film.  There is a very good reason for that.  This is one awesome read!  There are some slow periods, but the author makes up for all.  LOVED!

IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW-

It was hard for me to empathize with the main characters.  However, I enjoyed the journey. Well written, as are all her novels.

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HERE-

Again, I enjoyed the concept of this novel, but, like other Ahern books, there were points where I was getting frustrated with the author.  There is a good message, as there is in all her books, but it felt like she was pounding it home a bit too hard.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Ok, so this is an interesting premise.  A woman is saved by a transfusion and suddenly finds that she is sharing his memories, likes, dislikes, even his education!  It is a fun read, then it gets pretty slow.  I don't think Ahern knew how to wrap this one up

Rosie Dunne

This book was so hard for me to read!  Talk about getting hit over the head with a hammer!! Golly, the main character can't get a break.  Everything predictably goes South each time she has a great opportunity.  Ho hum.

The Book of Tommorow 

I wandered into this novel discouraged after the Rosie Dunne experience, but once again, I am a believer!  The story is a combo.  Part mystery, part self realization of the main character.  I LOVED it!  I even read it while standing on line at the grocery store.  It traveled with me wherever I went until I was finished.  And then I went back and re-read some of it!
Thanks Cecelia Ahern!
