The Voice of the Night by Dean Koontz

This book was really good. I felt so sorry for Collin and the way his mother didn't believe anything he said and he was the good guy. I wish it had of ended with Collin visiting Roy in the hospital like he'd said he would do but that's okay. Overall it was another pretty good Koontz book. Love his work!

Rogue by Danielle Steel

I listened to this book on CD and it was actually pretty good. Danielle Steel books have always been hard for me to read and get into but I usually like it on CD. Anyhow, it was good. I loved the twist at the end and thought Charles was a butt the whole way through.

The Shunning by Beverly Lewis

This book was excellent. It's not my favorite of Beverly Lewis but I've at least read it twice now. I've predictable which is what I usually can't stand in a book. And throughout the whole book I was hoping Katie would never find out about the satin baby dress although I knew she would. Amish people are very interesting to me and this book shows some of their traditions. Can't wait to read the second in the series again.

Now on to my next book...The Shunning was my 17th book for 2009. Only 33 more to go...

This book was pretty good. It took me a while to really get into it but after I got into it I thought it was really good. The twisted plot was confusing because of how twisted it was but it ended good I thought.

I have a list of Harlan Coben's books and he's one of the many authors that I want to read every book that they wrote. Coben's books are usually dramatic and full of twist. We'll see what he has in store in the next book of his that I want to read which is The Innocent. But before I read that I'm going to read some of the other books on my TBR Author List. haha...Come back for more reviews.
