Book Review: Irish Thoroughbred

November 5, 2012

Irish Thoroughbred (Irish Hearts, #1)Irish Thoroughbred by Nora Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As Nora Roberts’ first published work, this fares well.

I may be partial to this book because Ms. Roberts is one of my favorite authors, and tops my list in the romance genre.

This book has a simple plot. There wasn’t much of a conflict. There’s the common theme on Silhouette novels about the hero being too macho to the point of being unreasonably dominant and the heroine to be such a “nice” and feminine girl, which, of course, may reflect the trends of the 80’s, when the book was published.

Still, I like this book. The characters may leave a lot to be desired, but the storytelling was great. Just enough drama, romance, and action to keep you reading until you finish it. This book is best for when you want to read something that you can finish in just a few hours. I even read this book more than once, and I still enjoy it every time.

The 101s

March 15, 2010

Last night, I was wide awake, reading a Nora Roberts book when a poem hit me. I mean, an idea for a poem. I just had to write it. I grabbed my pilot G-Tech .3 pen, whatever piece of paper I could find, and I wrote down the poem. I am not going to post it yet because I am saving it up for Jingle’s rally on Thursday. It’s another love poem, in case you’re curious enough to want to know it. I find that love poems are the easiest to write because I did not have to think when I write them. All I had to do was let my hand guide me, and words will just follow. This may be the first time in months that I am late in writing a blog. It is now almost 6PM here, and I am just writing my blog for today. I used to do that in the morning, right when I wake up, or while getting ready for work, or even while I’m at work.

I guess I just had so much to think about lately. Being a trainer is not really easy, especially when you have just started. Especially, too, if the company still needs to have a lot of changes with the training process. I can’t say I am not complaining. However, I have to say that I am so looking forward to overcoming the challenge. Everything that our training department has, or lacks, right now, is one big challenge that I really want to triumph over. I just hope that I will actually realize those goals.

The List

January 24, 2010

Last Friday, my friend and I were talking about Erich Segal’s death. It’s so sad. The literary world lost another hero. He wrote the most amazing love stories that provoked the reader’s emotions. Our topic shifted from Segal to our favorite authors. I decided to make a list of all my favorite authors. Pardon me if you may not agree with some. 🙂 I’m going to start with just a few. I’ll probably add more as the days go by… 🙂 If you guys have any suggestions or if you think I’ve left out a few names that should be mentioned, please do tell me so. 🙂

1. Paulo Coelho

2. Neil Gaiman

3. Dan Brown

4. Nora Roberts

5. Isabel Allende

6. Kahlil Gibran

7. J. R. R. Tolkien
