Hi everyone! I’m taking over Stephanie’s blog! LOL! I thought I’d talk about some great books out there right now…especially considering that since it’s Hunting Season and I spend MANY hours/day in my deer stand reading as well as taking photos! I went through several books during our Thanksgiving trip. Some of them “Saucy” and some of them “Christian based” So hopefully there is something for everyone.
I never have time to read, except for when I’m hunting…it started with the “Chicken Soup for Souls” series, but I flew through them quickly! SO…I knew I needed LARGER books…lol! I have been a HUGE fan of Ken Follett for a long time now…but the book that REALLY grabbed me was “The Pillars of the Earth” I love how he takes the characters and enter twines them throughout the years and situations…it’s amazing how he does that! It really keeps you turning the pages! I highly recommend this book…it’s certainly NOT for kids.
After reading The Pillars of the Earth…the movie came out on TV. I was so excited to see that the movie I had running in my head throughout my journey in the book was taken literally to the screen!
So…this past summer I picked up his book “The Fall of Giants”, I knew it had to be good…but I didn’t want to read it until I had picked up the newest book in his collection “Winter of the World”. I began with “The Fall of Giants”. Ken Follett really does his research and is able to fold his characters into the pages of history…half way through the book I couldn’t wait to read the second book…I was curious how the lives of the characters would be in the next book.
When I return to the lease, I will be reading the SEQUEL to “The Pillars of the Earth” called “World Without End” I couldn’t find the book forever…but finally got my hands on a copy! If you choose to read them….I hope you enjoy them as much as I did…especially “Cross Roads”.
Thanks for having me here!
