Weekly Geeks Review

So it took me a couple of tries reading this week's Geek topic to 'get it'. Maybe it's because my 2 year old decided it was a good idea to get up before 6:30 on a Sunday morning. Now that I get it, have a read and see if you get it too:

1. In your blog, list any books you’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. If you’re all caught up on reviews, maybe you could try this with whatever book(s) you hope to finish this week. (Be sure to leave a link to this post either in the comments of this post, or in the Mister Linky below.)

2. Ask your readers to ask you questions about any of the books they want. In your comments, not in their blogs. (Most likely, people who will ask you questions will be people who have read one of the books or know something about it because they want to read it.)

3. Later, take whichever questions you like from your comments and use them in a post about each book. Link to each blogger next to that blogger’s question(s).

4. Visit other Weekly Geeks and ask them some questions!

I'm caught up on my book reviews so I'm going to list 2 books that I'm currently reading.
The first is For Better, For Worse by Carole Matthews and the second is Fortune's Rocks by Anita Shreve. So fire away. Questions ready? Go!

I just received a copy of Anita Shreve's Testimony. Is this your first Shreve novel? If so, would you read another by her? If not, have you read Testimony or do you plan to?

Here's my Weekly Geeks post: http://undercoverbooklover.blogspot.com/2009/06/weekly-geeks.html

I've only read one of Anita Shreve's books, and while I found it an okay read, it did not really make me want to check out more of this writer's works. How did you like this book?

I really like Fortune's Rocks, but I haven't liked the other books of hers that I read as much. There's the fact of a younger girl-older man relationship in this novel. Did that bother you, or did you enjoy the story anyway (assuming you enjoyed the story, that is)?

I liked Shreve's The Pilot's Wife? Have you read that? How does it compare with her other boks? Do you recommend?

I like Shreve's books but haven't read the one on your list. What did you think of it? My post is here.

What type of writer is Shreve? I don't know anything about her, so does she write in a certain genre?
