Book Obsessions

I must admit I have an obsession.  I love the Study Series by Maria V. Snyder.  I was introduced through a bookmark at Barnes and Nobel's, but instantly fell in love with the series.  However when I began reading Poison Study, and when I went to get the other books the covers didn't match! I was fine with it, then I got to meet Maria Snyder...I got the series signed, but again the covers were different.  Now honestly it doesn't bother me too much, but when I came across a matching Poison Study to my original copies of Magic Study and Fire Study, I was thrilled.  The best part, which is also somewhat sad, is that it was on sale because the closest Border's is closing.  So now my little obsession of matching covers is over, but the obsession with the series will probably never be over(just a hint at what be to come in the future ;-)  )

The Christmas Thief Mary Higgins Clark, Carol Higgins Clark

Ok this was another Christmas gift from one of my best friends, Em!  Now I will say I was very nervous about reading this book, it seemed to be a mystery/suspense type...and honestly I don't do well with those types of books normally.  However this was a great experience reading!  It had the multi-character perspective that I am drawn to, so I always knew what was going on.  This was perfect for me, even though the mystery wasn't as strong as others I was very engaged in the book.  I was wondering what would happen next. 

The one thing I didn't realize when I started to read this, was that this is a book in a series!  I am now going to have to pick up the others soon so that I can get to know the characters better.  However I did not feel lost as the Clarks had explained the characters and what allowed them to be where they are.  I know with some books you are lost with the characters if you pick up in the middle of a series and this was so not the case!

While I didn't quite picture myself in the story as much as I have in other books, it was a great read and I do recommend people to read it!  So my rating is:
