"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

I couldn't believe it was almost May and I hadn't read one book by one of favorite authors, James Patterson and my To-Be-Read pile has one whole stack of just his books, so this next month I going to try to catch up on as many of his books as I can.  I also have a whole stack of books by Stuart Woods, so there may be a month soon that I will get to attack that stack.  Plus there are so many good books coming out in June, hopefully I will get some early copies so I can help you start to plan your summer reading lists.  The first one to put on your list is one I read last week, A Cutthroat Business by Bente Gallagher, which I will be reviewing this week.  It's a good one.

If you are visiting my blog today from Sheila's meme, please take a moment to take the poll in the upper right hand corner.

I hope you all have a great week.  HAPPY READING!!

What a good bunch of books you have in store for this week, I hope you enjoy your reads!

Love that you have Patterson on Deck. The three books you are reading are all with the Bennett family and I love those! I thought Step On A Crack was the first one, Run For Your Life was second and Worst Case was third but I may be mistaken.

I have not read Step On A Crack but have read the other two and LOVED them!

Take care and have a good week! :)

Looks like you have a lot of reading planned. I loved all those Pattersons. I like the series with the detective with all the adopted kids.

I've never read anything by James Patterson, although I've got several of his books in my TBR pile, too. Hope to get to one of them soon. Enjoy your reading this week!

Earlene Fowler is usually an excellent choice and I have A Cutthroat Business on my TBR pile. Your line-up for this week is fantastic. The Patterson's I have read the other two are being adding to my TBR list. Happy reading this week.
