First books of 2014

I haven't done this for a couple of years but I'm going to do this year, as one of my goals this year is to do the things I enjoy. So here goes:
1st book is Executive Power by Vince Flynn--This is number 4 of his Mitch Rapp series. It's a espionage thriller. One of my favorite kind of fiction.

The second is a book by Barbara Cartland--I read a lot of these when I was young, but not all of them. They are for the most part out of print, but I found a website that has a lot of these short novels scanned into .pdf files.

I read A Serpent of Satan for book number 2
Book number 3 was A Frame of Dreams.

If you've never read Barbara Cartland, she wrote a lot of Regency Romances with very pure virginal young women who meet older, more worldly but chilvarous men, fall in love and ultimately get married. She normally included some historical facts of the times which give the books slightly more depth than they normally would have. They are really adult fairy tales, lots of fun to read and relax with when life is a bit harsh.

So today is Jan 4, 2014 and I've read 3 books. Not a bad start.
