You Wanna Bet?
You know when you look at someone who is reading a book and the person keeps smiling or laughing out loud and you get curious because you want to know the whole story, that's what happened when my roommate was reading "The Bet" by Rachel Van Dyken. In my previous post, I wrote about how I love to read, well, if you get good books that's what will happen to you. Aren't you glad it's not a bad thing to like to read? Okay, so in the past I have had the opportunity to read books that were just so good that they were page turners and couldn't be dropped for a second. I have read books that I couldn't put down because they were so good but I had to hide their covers because, well, let's just say I didn't want anyone gloating at me because they couldn't believe I was reading that book. But now, I get excited when I realize that there are still books out there that are really good. There are authors out there that still know how to write and make their readers giddy with excitement. That was exactly how I felt reading The Bet. Not only was it a page turner, the story caught my interest because it was one that could be related to. It was funny and at times I just wanted to pinch the characters for the stupid things they did. I liked it because it could have been real. It was real. Enjoy!
Just for the sake of recommending a book that I think is one of the most intelligently written books out there, check out "Tapestry of Fortunes by Elizabeth Berg"
