4 Likes/Dislikes:
1.Loved the spirit of Fin! She was a strong,female character and I cared deeply about her by the end of the book 2. Liked the action and the surprises. Starting in an orphanage and ending on a pirate ship really mixes it up. 3.Liked the historical background that the author built this story around. 4.Loved how this story made me feel connected to it. I was drawn in and finished quickly. Can't wait for the next book!

  1. Wow, you are back. We were hoping everything was ok with you. There are a few of us who love this meme so we kind of continued on without you but I'm glad to see you are alright. Life can sure get in the way sometimes. Sounds like you had your fair share and then some.

  2. I haven't heard of this book but it sounds good!
    Like Kaye, I'm glad to see you back :) I posted a Show Me 5 today. We've been linking over at Jenner's blog ( for a few months. She set up Mr. Linky.

  3. I'm new to the meme, but love it. Glad you are back hosting.

  4. Hello ... glad to hear you are back to blogging! It sounds like you had a very rough few months but I'm glad that things are getting more back to normal.

    We've been taking good care of your meme for you. After you "disappeared," I started putting up a Mr. Linky on my blog for other participants to link up. But now that you are back, I won't do that anymore. I've tried to tell everyone who was getting used to coming to my blog to link up for Show Me 5 Saturday to come over here now.

    Welcome back.

  5. Thanks for keeping it going Ladies! Jenners, I don't know how to do a Mr. Linky, but I would be more than willing to set that up on my blog for next time. I appreciate you all stopping by to see me today!! I am so glad to be back!!

  6. Hey, welcome back :) Looks like you read some good stuff while you were gone. A Prayer For Owen Meany has been on my TBR for... oh, 8 years or so. ;)
