The Christmas Wedding (2011)

I knew this would be a book without a lot of depth, but hey it's Christmas and a little fluff reading was what I was wanting. It wasn't even worthy of a good fluff rating. What did I expect when it's about a woman with grown children who decides to get remarried on Christmas Day?-----only she's n...

The Christmas Wedding (2011) by James Patterson

I, Michael Bennett (2012)

Ok. Disappointed with the end, but I have the next book so no wait for me. I find it hard To believe that he would keep the kids at the lake house even after he knew they had been targeted. To top it off, the whole MC leaving. She needs to get over it. She is the nanny. His wife didn't die al...

Maximum Ride Five-Book Set (2009)

I'm a science fiction fan and it has been a year ago since I first ran across this series in the library. I was surprised that I had not heard much about it in the hallways because usually when great books come out you usually hear everyone talking about it which is usually how I decide to read ...

NYPD Red 2 (2014)

The NYPD Red unit is back for another high-thrills adventure, filled with both action and personal character growth. The 'Red' unit is pulled into capturing a serial murderer, labelled the HAZMAT KILLER when a high-profile political operative is found slain early one morning. With only a week lef...

NYPD Red 2 (2014) by James Patterson

NYPD Red: À Margem da Lei (2014)

I like James Patterson, but was not a fan of this book. I like mysteries and being able to try to figure out who the culprit is. In this book you know almost from the beginning who the bad guys are. James Patterson has been one of my favorite writers but I have to admit that his recent novels c...

NYPD Red: À Margem da Lei (2014) by James Patterson

I Funny: A Middle School Story (2012)

I loved this book, and I'm rooting for Jamie Grimm to win regionals in book two! Jamie isn't your normal protagonist. For one thing, he can deliver a punch line like someone many years his senior. For another, his comedic abilities are catapulting him into the limelight of comedy stardom, and he'...

I Funny: A Middle School Story (2012) by James Patterson

Um Casamento No Natal (2011)

Cute story. Occasional crude language but not throughout. A widow with four grown children decides to get married on Christmas day and requests that all of her children come to the wedding and to spend Christmas together. The unusual thing...she won't tell them whom she is marrying. She tells...

Um Casamento No Natal (2011) by James Patterson

Hope to Die (2014)

"It was ok" sums up my feelings towards this book fairly well. I borrowed it from a friend who bought in the airport on our way to New Zealand and couldn't fit it in his bag on the trip home. Spoilers follow.First of all I didn't love the narraters voice, it didn't seem to change despite the pers...

Hope to Die (2014) by James Patterson

Battle for Shadowland (2010)

Nice little side-episode to the adventures of Whit and Wisty as they fight the One Who Is The One. It bears to mention that you have to be at least familiar with what happens in the first book to fully understand all that happens and is mentioned. There are a couple of panels that try to give som...

Battle for Shadowland (2010) by James Patterson

Second Honeymoon (2013)

A great book. A page turner! Exciting? Yes. Poorly written with a casual conversational tone and filled with cliches? Yes.

Second Honeymoon (2013) by James Patterson

Alex Cross, Run (2013)

Most books do not hold my attention. This is not the case with most of James Patterson's books. "Alex Cross, Run" is certainly no exception. I loved how there were 3 different lives that all got brilliantly intertwined in one big murder mystery. One of my favorite parts was reading from the view ...

Daniel X: Alien Hunter (2008)

This 127 page comic by James Patterson tells the story of how one boy, Daniel X who has the superpower of creating anything on his mind, must continue his fathers job of exterminating all evil aliens. In this book, Daniel X is on the mission of destroying alien number 7, which means he is getting...

James Patterson's Witch and Wizard: Battle for Shadowland (2011)

This book i would recommend for anyone who has read fang. Just like fang, they have this thing with finding out there true way of life. And for some reason both fang and this book have like something to do with there parents. This book is long but so was fang, writen by the same auther ( james pa...

Private India (2014)

Can I give this book a zero star rating??? I just finished JP's Hope to Die and thought that maybe things were turning around for his books. They have been getting worse and much that I was on the brink of moving on to other (better?) authors like so many of my friends have. But when ...

Merry Christmas, Alex Cross (2012)

I was shocked with the position Alex was put in, and I really felt bad for him for once. Most of what he encounters is by his own choice because he just can't seem to say no. This time he could not say no and I really felt bad for the position he was in.It is strange that I started reading the ...

Merry Christmas, Alex Cross (2012) by James Patterson

I Even Funnier (2013)

"I even funnier" was a good book and it was full of laughs and amusement. I recommend this book for people who need a laugh. This book had nothing really wrong with it and it had things that were relatable in life. I liked the part when Jamie Grimm was on stage performing his jokes and the part w...

I Even Funnier (2013) by James Patterson

Treasure Hunters (2013)

I give it three and a half stars. (Why doesn't goodreads let us give half stars?)A work of epic refined literature this ain't, but it was a zany and fun read all the same.Sure I could have done without a few of those kinda crude "Middle School" jokes, and they sorta stereotyped a few of the main ...

Maximum Ride Boxed Set #1 (2010)

Started today September 26th, 2012. The basic concept of the story reminds me of the "Virals"-Series by Kathy Reichs, which I like a lot. So I will probably breeze through this one. As an added bonus the series is finished, so I know how many books I have left to buy.So just finished it yesterday...

MedHead: My Knock-down, Drag-out, Drugged-up Battle with My Brain (2010)

Having had a parent who constantly battled with regulating medications and finding a way to fight da...

Med Head: My Knock-down, Drag-out, Drugged-up Battle with My Brain (2010)

Honestly, this is my favorite book to date that I've read! I found it easy to identify with the main character. It was also a book that causes a range of different emotions, from happy or proud to sad and scared. To know that the book is based off a true story written by the father makes it even...

Maximum Ride, Vol. 5 (2011)

I didn't read book four (so missed out on the ITEX plot) but will read all the novels. I feel sorry for the other Max as she isn't treated as a person since she'll never live up to Max. Fang's haircut is hot, just saying. It's smart for Fang to blog what's happening to them. I'm surprised peo...

12th of Never [Excerpt: First 17 Chapters] (2013)

Patterson is a fun summer beach read. But good grief this required more suspension of disbelief than most. The DA served a search warrant and searched a house. Lindsay went back to work early while she thought her new baby was dying? The bad guy plants his lover in the police department, and s...

Overall, I did enjoy the storyline. The cases were interesting to me and they kept me reading. That is the part I was not disappointed in.

Homeroom Diaries (2014)

The book I've read is called "Homeroom Diaries" by James Patterson.

What I like about this story is that the theme of this st...

I was seven when The Angel Experiment came out and I remember my grandmother buying it for me (she...

Cradle and All (2001)

Parto verginaleNiente appassiona di più dell'eterna lotta tra il Bene e il Male, soprattutto quando di mezzo ci sono il Vaticano e i preti.

Third in the Alex Cross thriller series and revolving around Dr./Deputy Chief Alex Cross.My TakeYeah, Jack & Jill is one of the few stories I did not finish.

Roses are Red (2001)

tJames Patterson has always been a favorite author of mine, and I had my bar set high when I first opened the front cover of Roses are Red.

Four Blind Mice (2003)

Reading a James Patterson novel is akin to eating soggy cereal -- eatable but not necessarily the first choice for breakfast. With that being said, I gave this one four stars. Call me a hypocrite, if you like. But the rating is not so much on Patterson's skills as a writer (which he has few, i...

London Bridges (2005)

The appeal of James Patterson's work cuts wide and deep. He is not a stylist; one could harp on his occasionally choppy transitions, his sketchy descriptions, or his sometimes-irritating jump from first person to third. But what cannot be denied is that the man is a storyteller, which is what a w...

Hide and Seek (1997)

Within a few pages I could clearly see why James Patterson has sold a ridiculous amount of books.

There was a metaphorical hole in my heart. A spiritual void and yearning for oblivion. My hands didn't want to turn the pages of the many books I own. Too lazy. What's the point? I'll still be me.
