Last night, I literally fell asleep very early while watching TV, and woke up almost ten hours later.

When was the last time that ever happened to me?  I can’t recall.  But strangely enough, I had a hard time getting my sea legs after such a marathon sleep; I was literally dizzy.

When I finally regained my equilibrium, I wondered if my long sleep and the resulting dizzy spell had a connection.  Inner ear infection?  I’ve certainly been exhausted lately.

But after some oatmeal, some toast, and some coffee, I blogged a bit, and then finished reading this awesome book that completely captivated me from the beginning.  I couldn’t seem to put it down.  Best Kept Secret, by Amy Hatvany (click title for review) was one of those books that I emotionally connected with.  The sheer honesty, the gutsy strength in the face of almost insurmountable challenges, had me at page one.  When it ended, I wanted to keep reading about this character.

What kinds of characters tug at you in just this way?  Do the characters’ unique voices bring the sense of connection you need in a book, or is it the particular challenge they face?

I know that after reading this one, I’m reaching for more books from this author.

  1. I do know of this book and it seems absolutely gripping…I just reread your review of it, too.
    Your review was very intense and really made me think about this book.

    I still tend to choose different genres…I need to be in the mood for certain books. Dysfunction, mysteries, challenges, quests…all seem to appeal to me at various times.


    1. Thanks for visiting, Patty. This was such an emotionally captivating read that I want to reread it right away!

      But I probably won’t, because I have many books to read.

      Yes, I have to be in the mood for these books, but in perusing my December reads list so far, I must really be in the mood now! lol
