I am home! I know you were all desperately waiting for my arrival home. *wink*
There was a terrible mishap before I left which left me Nook-less on my 1 week vacation in the sun. I was horrified. I did pick up a paper book in the airport, but it was a terrible experience because everything I NEEDED to read wasn’t released yet, and everything I WANTED to read I already owned on my Nook and had to spend money on again! And no, borrowing wasn't an option at this point – there was no time.
The lucky book that was picked for my trip from the book store near my gate at the Minneapolis airport was:
Two For The Dough
A Stephanie Plum Novel
Author: Janet Evanovich
Published: February 5th 2004
Genre: Adult Fiction
Rating: 5 Birds
Now generally here I would highlight the blurb ablout the book from Goodreads.com, however. It stinks. So I’m not going to . It makes it sound like your typical crime novel when it’s actually part two of a 17(?) book series that is funnier than anything you will ever read. I can not represent these books this way!
Fact of the matter, I laughed, out loud, so hard a lot of the time I got weird looks from people lounging on the beach near me. Grandma Mazur alone should have her own spin off, and I hope that when I’m 80-something I am just like her. They are currently making a movie out of book one, One For The Money (YAY!) and the cast line up is perfect, exactly what I was picturing while reading!
Okay so back to the book, we pick up where we left off from book one. Stephanie Plum is still a bounty hunter, still sometimes working with, sometimes fighting back the urge to kill Joe Morelli. And this time around is trying to find some missing caskets, military grade weapons and a wacko names Kenny Mancuso.
SEE! I bet if you just read that you’d be like “Uh, I’m totally not reading those” I promise you, if you don’t you are missing out. These are the funniest, fastest reads I’ve ever got my hands on. Now I just need to squeeze the 3rd one into my stack of TBR so I can see what happens next!
End rating: 5 Birds, of course!
