I plan to read about 50 books this year. I really hope I go over that number, but for now the 50 mark will do.

Just finished reading this book to my kids. They seem to be enjoying the series, which makes it fun for me. I can't wait to start the 3rd book tomorrow night.

I won't bother with a description here; since it's been made into a movie, most of you probably already know what it's about. I will say that the book gives you a better understanding of the story.

I just finished reading the third book in this series. Reading these books for bedtime is making the idea of going to bed less horrible for my kids.

This book is about a young boy, in a distant land far away from Narnia, who runs away with a Narnian Talking Horse to the land of Narnia.

I just finished reading the 5th book in the Narnia series to my kids. This was a very good book and I hear that it's going to be made into a movie as well.

In this book, Edmund and Lucy come back to the world of Narnia along with their annoying cousin Eustace. They end up in the ocean and have to be rescued by Caspian and his men. The three kids go along with Caspian and his men to find the eight Lords that Caspian's uncle sent out to explore and to find Aslan's country, encountering many wonders and adventures along the way.

This book is actually a novella. It is the beginning of this series of books about a woman named Anna who happens to be a werewolf.

In the novella, Anna has been abused by the males in her pack for all the four years she's been a werewolf. Upon learning of some recent human killings, she ends up calling the head Alpha werewolf, who dominates all the packs throughout North America, about the activities that her pack's Alpha is doing. The head Alpha sends his son, Charles (the enforcer) to investigate and kill the guilty parties involved.

Charles, who is also an Alpha werewolf, gets more than what he bargains for when he meets Anna. He realizes that not only is Anna a rare Omega werewolf, but that she's the one he must claim as his mate. He immediately sees that someone has abused her and ends up learning that not only has she been raped and beaten by the males in her pack, but that she was also turned against her will (a rule that should never be broken). Now Charles has to bring down the persons responsible for both the human killings and for what was done to Anna (all this while trying to get Anna to trust him as her mate).

This is the second time I read this book. It's the continuation of the Alpha and Omega story.

In this book, Anna goes back with Charles to his home in Montana as his mate. After the abuse she endured from her former pack, Anna has to push her anxieties aside in order to get use to her new pack, trust in this man who claims her as his mate, and understand her new position as an Omega wolf. However, soon after they get there, Anna and Charles have to go out into the Montana wilds to hunt down a rogue werewolf before it threatens her new pack.

This is the second time I read this book. It is the next story to the Alpha and Omega series.

In this book, Anna and Charles are set to a summit to present their Alpha's, Charles' father, proposition to reveal themselves to humans. However, the most feared Alpha in Europe is against the plan and they soon find out that someone else is as well. When Anna gets attacked by vampires using magic that only werewolves use, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is responsible or risk losing everything.

This is one of my Christian romance novels, which turned out to be better than what I expected. I have another series by this author and a co-author that, while I found to be interesting, was not completely captivating like some of my other novels. I wasn't sure if this book would be more interesting, but I glad it was.

BOOK PLUG:

After years spent following their father and his wanderlust, the three Gallatin sisters begin to fashion a life for themselves in the Montana wilds, operating a roadhouse at the crossroads of two stage lines. When their father is accidentally killed, however, the oldest sister, Gwen, reasons that she's cursed. Death seems to haunt her every step.

As the sisters work to maintain the roadhouse, an unexpected visitor arrives, sending Gwen into turmoil. Is he who he claims to be? And can she dare to hope that love might again be hers?

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

To most, they are animals--even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And DA Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair.

It's her job to defend those in need. but there's absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can't disguise his sheer strength. Nor can the silver chain at his throat, designed to control the aggression of his kind, completely reassure her that this man has been tamed.

Yet when a feral shifter begins to stalk them both, Liam is the only one she trusts with her life. She'll let him claim her--for her protection, for her pride, and for a passion that knows no bounds.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

He is everything she wants to avoid...

For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters--a pleasant position, with one caveat. her charges' older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating. Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutual attraction. But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response--and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison.

She is not at all what she seems...

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

The old villa needed what Rese Barrett could do as well as any man on the crew. Trained by the best, she had honed her skills with a passion for quality, an eye for detail, and no room for compromise. Renovation was her joy - taking something old and making it new without changing the heart of it. But this time the inn she restored was hers, and this time she worked alone...

The answers were there if he could find them, and the commission from his grandmother Antonia compelled him to do so. Brash and impulsive, Lance Michelli arrived at the inn sure of his quest and sensing his right. After all, it was part of his heritage.

Chef, musician, and spellbinder, Lance talked his way into her plans before she'd even made them and had Rese telling secrets she'd never before revealed. He spoke of faith as if he could touch it, but how much more was left unsaid?

**This is the sequel to Secrets**

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

As past and present interweave in her mind, Antonia relives the terror that cast her from her Sonoma home and carried her to New York with Marco Michelli, the man who vowed to protect her...who became the husband she now realizes she hardly knew.

Two generations after Antonia's exile, Rese Barrett is swept into Lance Michelli's volatile family in the Little Italy of the Bronx, where she finds a culture and way of life as baffling as it is welcoming. These are the people Lance loves with the fierce, unflagging devotion that pulled him back from Sonoma--where her own uncertain future waits.

Some things might be better left in the shadows of the past, but Lance doesn't have that option. With his grandmother clinging to life, as fragile as spider's thread, he struggles to unravel a complex web of lies and secrets. Is his family's history as shameful as Nonna Antonia believes, or is it more treacherous than anyone imagines?

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Even in the midst of her affectionate and chaotic Italian family all living in the Bronx neighborhood where she grew up, Sofie Michelli feels alone. For too long, she has been caught in a net of loss and despair. When an old woman murmurs, "Finchè c'è vita c'è speranza" (Where there's life, there's hope), Sofie feels the familiar words penetrate and awaken something. She is alive. It is time to let go, to start again.

Rese is not sure what to make of Lance Michelli's healing gift, but she feels protected of this humbled version of the swaggering man who turned her life inside out. As they find new footing, the Sonoma villa they once intended as an inn becomes a refuge for the downtrodden--including Lance's sister Sofie.

Driven to protect the weak and innocent, Child Protective Service worker Matt Hammond responds to a call and finds an infant abandoned to the care of an odd assortment of misfits. he reserves judgment on the unconventional caregivers--who both concern and fascinate him--but he is especially drawn to Sofie, the mesmerizing woman with a dancer's poise, eyes like dark copper pennies--and scars on her wrists.

After a grueling escape north, Belle Palmer is free, yet lost and alone. Separated from her father on the harrowing journey, Belle has nowhere to turn until she finds shelter with the Bests, the first free family she's ever known.

For the first time in her sixteen years, Belle is able to express herself freely—except where her feelings for a certain dark-eyed young man are concerned.

Daniel Best is headed for great things. Educated and handsome, at eighteen he is full of the promise and dreams of his people, and is engaged to the prettiest (if the most spoiled) girl around. So when a bedraggled stranger arrives in his household and turns into a vibrant, lovely young woman, his attraction to her catches him entirely by surprise.

While Belle is determined to deny her feelings for him, Daniel is caught between his conscience and his infatuation with her. That the two belong together is undeniable, but that it could ever happen seems impossible.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Josephine Best has it all figured out. Just seventeen, she's been to college, she has her own hairdressing shop and she refuses to be distracted from her goals. At least until handsome George Brooks begins to pursue her. Jojo isn't looking for romance, but she permits George to call on her.

Adam Morgan has always been a Casanova, and no girl is immune to his charm. But when he comes home wounded from the War Between the States, it's a girl he used to call "Pest" who's turning his head. All grown up, Jojo is being courted by another soldier, and Adam knows it would be foolish to play with her heart. Even so, he just can't get the headstrong lady off his mind.

For her part, Jojo can't deny her growing feelings for Adam. But he's always been such a flirt--he can't possibly be serious about her. Besides, she has George falling all over himself to please her. As the war rages on, Adam's feelings for Jojo grow stronger, but Jojo's determination to resist him does, too. One thing is clear, though: Jojo is a girl who always gets what she wants, sometimes in spite of herself.

Yet when Violet, now a sophisticated woman, unexpectedly appears at Rule's London town house, husbandly duties no longer seem so odious--he can't wait to take his stunning bride to their marriage bed. Violet, however, is not so easily led: she has her own ideas and is seeking an annulment to marry another. But as Rule attempts to win her over, someone else is determined to fame him for murder and keep him out of the way for good...

Julian Delane, Earl of Parkhurst, has worked hard to restore his family name and plans to maintain the respect his title deserves by finding a respectable woman to wed. However, when a painting depicting two items of interest: a gorgeous naked woman, rumored to be one of the ton, and her diamond necklace, stolen from Julian's father a decade earlier, he begins to focus on learning more about the woman he believes to be the model, Miss Rebecca Leland.

Demure debutante Rebecca Leland was recently seen sporting the diamond, but when Julian catches her and her sister and cousin trying to steal the painting, all three young ladies claim to be the model. Threats from another gem seeker send Rebecca off on a wild journey across the countryside; lustful, curious Julian soon catches up, and they're quick to take advantage of their unchaperoned solitude.

Entranced by the portrait, haunted by scandal, Julian would stop at nothing to learn the truth...even if it led to their utter ruin.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

She harbors a secret yearning.

As a lover of animals and nature, Beatrix Hathaway has always been more comfortable outdoors than in the ballroom. Even though she participated in the London season in the past, the classic beauty and fee-spirited Beatrix has never been swept away or seriously courted...and she has resigned herself to the fate of never finding love. Has the time come for the most unconventional of the Hathaway sisters to settle for an ordinary man--just to avoid spinsterhood?

He is a world-weary cynic.

Captain Christopher Phelan is a handsome, daring soldier who plans to marry Beatrix's friend, the vivacious flirt Prudence Mercer, when he returns from fighting abroad. But, as he explains in his letters to Pru, life on the battlefield has darkened his soul--and it's becoming clear that Christopher won't come back as the same man. When Beatrix learns of Pru's disappointment, she decides to help by concocting Pru's letters to Christopher for her. Soon the correspondence between Beatrix and Christopher develops into something fulfilling and deep...and when Christopher comes home, he's determined to claim the woman he loves. Whet began as Beatrix's innocent deception has resulted in the agony of unfulfilled love--and a passion that can't be denied..

Seven years later, Eamon once again crosses paths with the bold, beautiful lass when she is hired to tutor his clever young nephew. He is sure she obtained the position under false pretenses. After all, what would a wild-spirited gypsy know of sums and schoolbooks? But despite his misgivings, Eamon can't deny that he's falling under her spell-even as it becomes very clear that she has something to hide...

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape--but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.

Mercy's loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can't decide between the two she cares for, Sam and Adam may make the choice for her...

**Yeah! I finally completed my goal and before the year's out. Now I'm going to see how many more books I can finish reading by Dec. 31.**

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

A traitorous heart...

Cara Lee Henson knows no soldier can be trusted to stay in one place--and that includes handsome Sergeant Chase Jefferson of the Tenth Cavalry. Dallying with the dashing man in blue could cost the pretty, independent Kansas schoolteacher her job and her reputation. So Cara is determined to repel Chase's advances--even though her aloof facade barely masks her smoldering desire.

A blazing passion...

Never before has Chase longed for a woman the way he ached for lovely Cara Lee. the strong-willed ebony beauty, however, will not surrender easily. But with tender words and soulful caresses, Chase intends to conquer the reluctant schoolmarm's misgivings--and teach her how to love fully, sensuously...and forever.
