Dead Until Dark (Southern Vampire Mystery, Book 1) Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book – having seen half of the first season. I was very pleasantly surprised with how close it is to the book. I love Sookie’s voice and this is one of those books that I believe I will completely finish the series. While the author takes some liberties with the folklore of vampires – she remains much closer than other books on the market right now. There were things that led me to investigate which author published her book first – and I was interested to see that this was several years before another series of books which is so popular right now. Onto the second in the series…

Peaks and Valleys: Making Good And Bad Times Work For You--At Work And In Life Peaks and Valleys: Making Good And Bad Times Work For You–At Work And In Life by Spencer Johnson

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
Peaks and Valleys is a wonderful book. A very quick read – I read it over one of my lunch hours. I have always liked Who Moved My Cheese and repeatedly had brought that book out to re-read when I am feeling a little stuck. Peaks and Valleys encourages me to look at things differently – I may get stuck in a valley occasionally, but it all depends on how I look at it. What maybe a valley, could actually be a peak – it’s all in my focus. I encourage everyone to read it and can’t wait to start sharing it with my family.
