Bleed for Me & other books I shouldn't like
My boss was sent to Philadelphia for training so they put me in charge. Eeek! Needless to say I've had a crazy week. That's obvious since I didn't know it was Friday until a few hours ago. But now that I've caught up I thought we could have a little fun this weekend. So what's the last guilty pleasure book you read that you gained nothing from reading? Mine was BLEED FOR ME by Michael Robotham, an author I'd never read before or even heard of. I finished the book last night which is saying a lot considering how stressed I've been about work the last two weeks. I can't say I didn't gain anything from reading BLEED FOR ME. I always pay special attention to a book I don't want to put down. Why do some stories work and others fall flat? Inquiring writers want to know. Well, this one worked. Flawed characters and a suspenseful storyline kept me turning pages when I should've been sleeping. Tell us about the last book that kept you reading even if it wasn't on any bestseller lists or recommended by your pastor's wife. Come on, 'fess up. We won't tell. Your secret's safe with us.
