What I'm Reading Right Now (12)


Quote of the day:
I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think. -Socrates


This week I continue with the Clifton Chronicles, the fourth volume in the Archer series. The last volume was a roller coaster and 'Be Careful What You Wish For' is proving to be so too. The beauty of this entire series is that it feels like one giant book -like I've only been reading one book as the stories are woven brilliantly into each other.

The book starts off on a fast pace with a gripping plot twist, and recounts a series of events that may well change the fortunes of the family forever.

In this fourth volume, the story continues from the late 1950s to the mid '60s, with the Clifton family saga, and an unlikely villain who will stop at nothing to seek revenge-even if it destroys everyone. Its filled with suspense, and intrigue. It is indeed a wonderful page turner.

So tell me, what book(s) are you reading? Have a wonderful week ahead!

Peace.Love.Light*

  22. I loove books ♥ reading is the most powerful thing for me...books brings me to other interesting and magical worlds! I love novels, biographies, psychology, metaphysics ...It's amazing how when reading unify with the author, see his eyes, but also run its own huge imagination.. ♥

    sorry about my English, its not so good :)
    have a wonderful week!
    kisses from Poland ♥

  25. I would like to read this, it's so long since I read an Archer book. If they're a roll-on series I must be careful to get them in the right order.

  28. I am inclined to disagree with Socrates on that aspect...sometimes you can't even make them think. My mother says that all the time...Be careful what you wish for...you just might get it.

  30. I just finished a re-read of "The Crossing Places". The first book in a series I love, love, love. My husband was reading it on his Galaxy and I re-read the book, along with him. So we could talk about it. :-)

    Don't think he is asssss in-love-with this, as I am. But that's fine. He did enjoy it. That's what counts.
