Getting to it

So recently I posted my 30 before 30 to do list.
On there was:

3. Read 6 NEW books. Not books I've previously read or part of a series.

My Mom got really excited knowing that I'm planning to read 6 books this year. She jumped up and grabbed 4 books she thought I'd like. A couple years ago I'd introduced her to the Davinci Code. Apparently she loved it so much that Dan Brown is now one of her favorite authors. I read The Davinci Code and Angels and Demons and gave up on him. I felt like the two books had basically the same plot.
One of the books Mom handed me was Deception Point.
I finished it in less than 24 hours. (Maybe I should up my to do list to include more books!) I enjoy the intrigue of books like this. And I especially like it when the twist is not one I predict myself. (I thought the "controller" was a certain person and it turned out to be someone else entirely)

What books do you like? What would you recommend for me to read?


  1. I recently read Dan Brown's deception Point myself and enjoyed it immensely! I thought that the "controller" was someone else too! hehe. Do you like witty books? Have you read Gerald Durrell's "My Family and Other Animals"?
    Just plain hilarious!!
    I also just read Frederick Forsyth's "The Cobra"
    Forsyth is brilliant as always!

  2. ooh i loved deception point! i'm going to read all of chuck palahniuk's books now. the guy who wrote fight club :)
