post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Anyone else get so wrapped up in a story you loose all track of time and responsibility? I stayed up till 4am reading last night (good thing I had today off!) and now I'm trying to calculate how long it will take me to reach the end of this story!


(I'm reading a wonderful historical/romance novella! - All clean stories BTW!!)

The title is 'Regency Brides' by Kimberley Comeaux. The book takes place in the same time period as Pride & Prejudice and follows the love stories of 2 brothers and their friend. I typically only read Christian Romance novels when it comes to romance books. I find books like these to be very good mini-vacations!

Have you read any of Lurlene McDaniels books? They are really good.
A book that I would recomend if you like Christian books is Gap Creek by Robert Morgan!!! It is the BEST book ever!
I also like Beverly Lewis, and Lauraine Snelling books.

All the time, I limit myself to 2 books a week max!

I used to read Laurlene McDaniel's books and still have some, but they get me wayyyy too emotional and wrapped up!

I read the first in the Abram's Daughter's series just before Thanksgiving (that is one of Beverly Lewis' titles correct?) and though it had me glued to it, in the end it made me mad! I want happy endings! I ended up leaving it at my Grandmother's for her to read.

I finished the section about 5 or 10 minutes ago. So I guess I can go to bed now! Except that it has me kinda worked up too!

Every morning my routine is to scoop the litter box, feed Anya, and start drawing myself a bath. I get up early enough for some "me time" in the bath where I can read for a bit. I will admit to being late for work a few times because my book got so good I couldn't put it down.

You should try Robin Hardy's books..they are gooood. My friend got me hooked and all my friends got together and bought me all the books for my birthday.

Clicky

I would buy them from her directly at her website but that gives you an idea of what's in it. She is so nice too and loves to hear from her readers.
post #14 of 28
Oh yes - lately it has been some of Jodi Picoult's books - she is so good and she has me hooked!
post #15 of 28
yep, but its been a couple o fyears since i saw i book where i must finish it.
post #16 of 28
Oh Yea!!!!!! I LOVE just spending all day lounging around and reading a good book or play Give me ANYTHING by Shakespear and i will not stop reading until i'm done with the entire thing I also LOVE Michael Crichton!!!
post #17 of 28
I did it with the last Harry Potter book, stayed up way too late and I did have to work rthe next day!! I'm a speed reader so it usually takes me about 3-4 hrs to read a 500 page book, so I usually will finish it before it gets too out of control
post #18 of 28
Yep! I love finding a good book like that. I find myself a little sad that its the end sometimes too. Like I want to read more!

You have to be patient with Beverly Lewis. If you get to the last book in the series, you'll get your happy ending. The main characters have to go through trials and tribulations first.

First off... I got a mental image of that.

With her its the opposite. She's all about a clean litter box. She sits there and waits impatiently while I finish and I barely have the scooper out of the way and she's in there doing her business. I usually just sit and wait and then scoop that out too.

Then she runs off to play. She's never been uber excited about dinner time though. She has dry food out all day so maybe that's part of it.

Yes, that is one of her sets of books.Right now, I'm reading Annie's People.
Lurlene does get really sad.But, I read them and then think how lucky I am.

YES, I agree!!!! I am on the 3rd one and I was getting upset.But, now things are coming together and I know they'll be right in the end.


I still suggest Rober Morgans Gap Creek!! It is a MUST read book. I have read it 3 times and still go back to it.

And at least Annie's people only had 3 books in the series. Bet you can guess one of the big events by the end of the 1st book, but you'll have to wait til the 3rd on to find out. Her books are really quick reads too. Although they make me feel really lazy. those women were always working--cleaning everything and cooking everything from scratch.

OMG I am reading THE most boring book right now..I literally read 2 pages a night...I can't get through it....BUT I refuse to not finish a book I have started..what a freak I am

I don't know if I'm patient enough for that!

Same here! If I didn't know an Amish family through my mother, I'd think it was just completely fictional!

Yes, I knew about "***" from the first book.
I keep saying I don't think I could live like that.Being shunned for my Christian beliefs.But, that is their way of thinking and living.
