    1. It's been a long time since I have read any Patterson, but I read your review of Tick Tock and this sounds like I would certainly enjoy it. Have a great week.

    2. Tapestry Of Love is on my TBR and I like all Cleopatra books so hope your book club one is good!

    3. Jan: Tick Tock was great - it's the 4th in the Michael Bennett series, but it could stand by itself, I suppose...thanks for stopping by!

      Sheila: The Tapestry of Love is so good - my review will be out this week! The Cleopatra book is very interesting!

    7. The Tudor Secret is on my list to read next month!

      I am a new convert to Susan Elizabeth Phillips--I am reading Simply Irresistible and Book 1 of the Sports Series she has :)

    8. @Felicia the Geeky Blogger I can't wait to see what you think of The Tudor Secret - I loved it!

      SEP's sports series is fun. The one I am reading next comes before her newest one out.

    9. Hope you enjoyed The Tapestry of Love - I've heard people say it's not quite what they'd hoped for, but I'm still interested.

    10. @leeswammes It's not a book about the plot so much as getting to know the character...I loved it! My review will be out this week.

    11. You have accomplished a lot this past week. How many books do you read at one time on average? I find I can handle maybe two at a time, depending on the book. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

    12. Thanks for your assistance with preparing a virtual book tour. My first, Sudden Moves, will be up Thursday, February 10. Come on over. http://shirley-mybookshelf.blogspot.com

    13. @Shirley Shirley - I used to only read one book at a time, but now I find I can do an audio book and another book. Since Cleopatra is non-fiction, and it's a slow book, I am able to read another one at the same time. Thanks for stopping by and I will definitely visit your first tour!

    15. @Elena I am enjoying Cleopatra - it's just a slow read...I read a little every day. It's very interesting.

    27. I'm going to have a pretty busy week. Mostly review books. I'm curious as to what you think of the Susan Elilzabeth Phillips book. I'm kinda hit or miss with her.

      Thanks for stopping by my blog. PS - I'm about a third into Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts and I think it is my new favorite!

      Happy Reading!

    28. The Tenth Circle wasn't my favorite Jodi Picoult book... I didn't like the main character (Trixie? don't remember) at all.

      It was still good, don't get me wrong, but her other books are much better in my opinion.
