I have been a Danielle Steel fan for many, many years! Thirty One years to be exact! I know that because that is the year The Promise came out. I loved that book so much! She had 3 previous novels and I immediately bought them too. After reading those 3, I wrote Danielle Steel a letter.....yes I did, I told her I could not imagine being without one on her novels to read.....she wrote me back...I was shocked the day I got a handwritten, hand addressed letter from Danielle Steel! This wonderful author of four books wrote me a letter. She said that she too, hoped I would never be without one of her books to read. I kept up with her for years but eventually I got behind....I continued to buy her novels and someday when I don't have anything to do, I'm going to read everyone of them and reread my favorites! I remember breaking down in tears when I started the last chapter of The Ring! It was go good, I didn't want to finish it!
Last week I saw Danielle on The View and became intrigued by the plot of her newest novel...Big Girl. She explores the issues of weight, self-image, sisterhood, and family. I am 80 pages into this one....love the characters and the story but here is my problem: I don't like books written in the 3rd person.....I like one on one dialogue! Does this bother you or do you even notice the difference? I don't want a narrator telling the story! It drives me crazy! I am trying not to notice and hope that the entire book is not written this way......
What are you reading? Some of the best books I have read were ones recommended by my fellow bloggers....
Have a good evening all...do you like American Idol this season? Some of my favorites have already been eliminated...oh well!
