Well I wanted to let you know that I started a new book series. It’s another silly science fiction series (think Twilight or Trueblood aka Sookie Stackhouse series) called the Rachel Morgan series. I am only about half way through the first book Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison but so far I am in love with it. The book is about a witch bounty hunter who helps capture witches, werewolves, vampires, and leprechauns who break the law. Check it out and let me know what you think.

I am a big fan of historical fiction and if you are looking for some new books to read in that genre I would recommend both The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End by Ken Follett. Pillars is the first book in this series and it is set during a time of civil war, famine, and religious strife in Medieval England. The book follows several characters and revolves around the building of a stunning cathedral in the small town of Kingsbridge. Follett does a very good job getting the reader involved with each character and really setting the stage for what times were like in this era. World follows the next generations of the characters from the first book and introduces new disasters for the town to battle such as the Plague and sinister leaders.
I just finished reading James Patterson's Step on a Crack. It is a newer series of his that revolves around Detective Mike Bennett who is a father of ten along with being a NYC homicide detective. In his first book of the series Bennett is faced with many issues at home while also being the lead negotiator in a high profile kidnapping that includes several of the cities rich and famous. I do like Bennett's character and look forward to reading more about him. While it wasn't my favorite Patterson book it was a good read and if you enjoy suspense and mystery it definitely had plenty of that.
