Declaring Blog Bankruptcy

I have a pile of books that I need to blog about but honestly, it's just not going to happen. The list just kept getting longer and my time kept getting shorter and well, blah. You've all heard of email bankruptcy right? Well this is my version of book blogging bankruptcy. I suppose I could have just as easily called it a hit and run post. Without further ado, here are the books that I've read in the last month and have not blogged about because life is like that sometimes.

Things I've Kept Silent About by Azar Nafisi - I always want to like Nafisi more than I do. She loses me when she stays away from the main "story" to talk about history or mythology. I think she's brilliant but for whatever reason we just don't "click". Listened to it on audio. Good reader but sometimes her S's are really sharp.

Flygirl by Sheri Smith - Awesome story of a black girl passing as white in order to fly for the US during WWII. She kicked butt. Almost wish it was a true story. Was left wondering if she got a reply to that letter and if so what it was.

Penalty Box by Deirdre Martin - I do wish that the hockey player romance novels actually involved actively playing athletes. First two did, the next two did not. Good romances but I haven't decided if I'll continue to read the series.

Blue Flame by Jill Shalvis - Firefighter romance meets cowboy ranch romance. What more could you want in a contemporary novel? Totally figured out who the bad guy was as soon as he appeared though. It must be repeated - Shalvis writes a darned good contemporary romance.

On Rue Tatin by Susan Herrmann Loomis - Entertaining look at buying and renovating a house in France while trying to write a cookbook and raise a family. Don't think I'd try many of the recipes included, though they did make me hungry.

Mom Will This Chicken Give Me Man Boobs? by Robyn Harding - How green can your family go? And if you live in a really green community how far are you willing to go? You know, before everyone outside the community thinks you are totally nuts.

Why I Let My Hair Grow Out by Maryrose Wood - I had a hard time getting into this YA fantasy novel. I read it in bits and pieces and never really felt drawn back to it. I'd still read the sequel though.

And now I'm almost up to date. Whoo!
