Peek Inside a Book - Meg

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.


This week I'm reading: Megby Steve Alten



It Begins: MEGALODON
Late Cretaceous Period, 70 Million Years Ago The Coast of Asiamerica-Northern Landmass (Pacific Ocean)
From the moment the early morning fog had begun to lift, they sensed they were being watched. 

On Page 56: As the helicopter approached the aft deck, Jonas immediately recognized the large reinforced-steel winch attached to the ship's transom which had been used to lower the twenty-five UNIS submersibles to the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

Subject: Salutations from the Royal Family of Thesolo

Dear Ms. Smith

I hope my letter finds you well.  I, Likotsi Adelele, assistant to Hist Royal Highness, have sought you out high and low over the last few monthsm, at the behest of the most exalted - and most curious - Prince Thabiso.

On Page 56: Thabiso debated what to do. He'd removed the salmon from the man's lap earlier. Was he supposed to retrieve the ice?

Chapter 1
"The House Select Committee will come to order..."

On Page 56: A hit of realization comes to the Speaker's expression. He leans back against the couch like a man who's holding all the cards. "You're saying out hearings will interfere with what you're doing."

It Begins: "Move that leg, girl!" the dowager Lady Craven hisses as she prods you with her cane.

On Page 56 (I went with page 57 this week): Seriously, cripes.

Do you try to defeat the evil spy lady? If so, turn to page 84.

Or do you  hold back? Ollie, unlike you, is a trained spy, and he can probably handle himself. If so, turn to page 119.

Verdict: I'm having so much fun reading this book!

This week I'm reading: Artemisby Andy Weir



It Begins: I bounded over the gray, dusty terrain toward the huge dome of Conrad Bubble. Its airlock, ringed with red lights, stood distressingly far away.

On Page 56: I smacked him on the back of the head and he jerked away from the microscope. He smiled like a child seeing a beloved aunt. "Oh! Hi, Jazz! What's up?"

Verdict: So far I'm enjoying the game!

Review: I liked this a bit better than the 1st book in the series, but again there are a lot of stereotypes in play.  Also the whole subplot of the who's setting them up and screwing with things, wasn't necessary and it would have just worked as a who's the daddy plot line.

It Begins: Prologue
That summer I hunted the serial killer at night from my daughter's playroom.

On Page 56: A bloodhound following a scent trail had brought him to the spot. The trail began at a child's bedroom window, continued over a fence and through a field of weeds, stopping at the curb. Shelby knocked on the nearest door and looked across the field toward the victim's house, a distance of about two hundred feet. He wished away his unease. 

Verdict: As a true crime lover this case …

Synopsis: Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there's a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment--taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he's at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling...

Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won't hide the facts of Bo's condition from him or herself. She's suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine...

Review: I've had this series for awhile, and at one point I think I enjoyed it but now I'm not thrilled with the book. It either doesn't hold up well or my taste in romances has changed.  I enjoy the sports concept, but it lacks some character development and is all jump right into a relationship. The secondary story of sabotage is a little far-fetched for me to believe.

It's like choosing my favorite child.  Now if you said what's my favorite Nora Roberts book easy, Divine Evil.  What's my favorite children's book(s) The Amelia Bedelia Series.  If it's a more direct favorite question I can answer it, but there's no way I can pick one over the others.

Do you ever feel like you have emerged better for reading a book?
Yes, both fiction and nonfiction books have had an impact on my life.  I'm never surprised by nonfiction books, because I tend to pick up ones that I want to learn something from, it's always a surprise when a fiction book makes me stop and think about a life choice or how I view the world.  I don't know why it surprises me, as an author you want your work to impact the reader in some way, and if my work of fiction can get someone to think about a topic or themselves in a better light then didn't I do my job if they were also entertained?

Have you ever thought of writing a respectful, but angry letter to an author to ask them WHY they killed off one of your favorite characters in a novel?
YES! I read 1 novel by this author and loved it, so when I saw another novel by her at a book sale I picked it up expecting another great story.  Welp, it started off great. Girl gets a chance at love, and all this other great things...AND THEN SHE DIES!

I have never picked up another book by this author. I have re-read and will recommend the first book I read by her, that books still wonderful.

I won't post it all here but reach out to me and I'll tell you which books.

#2018BibleRBR 1 Samuel 13-31

Really falling behind in my reading/posting, but I'm not going to give up, I'm going to power through and read this thing!

So instead of focusing on this whole half a book, I'm just going to focus on the story of David and Goliath.  I've always liked the story, the story of an underdog who can overcome. That's how this story is presented time and again.  Then I saw the following TED video from  Malcolm Gladwell and it blew my mind. Now having read the story, it really isn't the story of an underdog. It's the story of a skilled shepherd using his known skills to take down a bigger opponent.





It's still a great story, and we can still pull some useful stuff from it to apply to our everyday lives, but it's not the way we originally heard the story.  It's not the story of an underdog, it's the story of a boy who used his skills to take down a foe. Use your strengths to accomplish feats and not think you have to be or act a certain way to take on…

How do you organize your books for review?
Does it work for you or have you had to change it up?

Most of my books are ebooks so I just have to remember they are on my devices.

On my Kindle, I have a collection titled "ARCS" so I know those books will have to be read sooner rather than later and at some point reviewed.

Otherwise, they live next to my bed.

Is there a fictitious town in a book that you would love to live in?
What makes it appealing?

Probably any small town that Nora Robert's has written. I really like the idea of a downtown area, knowing the people I'll see everyday and having people know who I am.

The idea of being a small town librarian has some appeal.
