Hey Amy_Lee- I just ordered The Book of Lies By James Maloney. The sequel isn't released yet here. Not that I see anyway. So I will have to wait for it! They shipped my order today, so it should be here in a few days. I will let you know what I think! Thanks.

Sweet thanks gwenz i will look on fishpond and see what products are available. So the website has direct debit facilities that would be handy because i dont have a credit card. I went travelling along the queensland coast, stayed in brisbane for a while and goldcoast a bit. I went to Australia Zoo which is absolutely amazing and went to Wet and Wild Theme park very awesome. So you and Lisa reccomend the Falling hey? I will definitely get into ordering that and reading it now that it is available in paperback. Hey Lisa another awesome author is an Australian author called James Maloney, he has released two very incredibly amazing books 'the book of lies' and 'master of the books' which is the sequel to book of lies. I really suggest you getting them, and especially you gwenz since he is an Australia author he would be alot easier for you to access him, his books are even at my local library. Cheers Amy_Lee

Hi ladies! Its nice to meet you Amy_Lee. I am glad you came back on so soon Gwenz! I am thrilled that you loved FALLING. I am going to re-read it again too. I read it a year ago. I think its time to read it again! Have you guys ever read Janet Evanovich? She is a great author. She writes books that aren't really serious. Sort of Bubble gum books if you know what I mean. But they are faboulous! If you can, get ONE FOR THE MONEY and start there. She has different series, but her Stephanie Plum ones are the best. There are 15 of them. You won't regret picking up her books. Maybe you can just get them from the library to see if you like them. TWO FOR THE DOUGH is the second one. Let me know if you have read her. My new job is going fine. Its the same as always, back breaking work. It can be rewarding though. I hope you gals keep in touch! Take care of yourselves! ~Lisa

Hey girls, home alone and thought I'd grab a few moments to come and see if you had posted and both of you had. Hey Amy_Lee you been missed so much. Hey Lisa how's things?Where have you been travelling Amy_Lee? Lucky you. I so need a holiday. How's the new job coming along Lisa, enjoying it? Amy_Lee you have to get Falling it is sooo good. Lisa I loved it so much, I am going to re-read it again. Gosh it would end a chapter and I was sure I knew what was going to happen and blow me down time and time again it proved me wrong. Some great twists in there and I so loved all the characters the way it all connected with them all and Acid man a pretty freaky character if there ever was one. I'm hoping Pike is still writing as it's given me a whole new passion for his writing. So different from Alosha:the way he can write kids, young adult and adult books and make them so so different is amazing. The best book I've read since the Alosha series but the best thriller type one in a long time. A must read for all Pike fans, so much better than Blind Mirror. That could of been great but I hated the end. Amy_Lee if you can't get it at your local bookshop fishpond has it and postage is only $5 and that's from the U.S in our money best on line shop I've found you can pay paypal and direct debit from your band account, don't need a credit card and it's Australian and cheap. Hopefully I'll pop on say once a week and see if you posted. Have a great week both of you.

Hey Gwenz! I am so glad that you loved the book! I guess it was worth the wait. Sorry it took me so long to write back. I started a new job and I have been so busy with that. I finally come on and now you are leaving me! I look forward to hearing from you so much! I am going to miss you! I hope that you come back really, really soon! Please write me as soon as your back! Take care of yourself. I'm going to miss you! ~Lisa

seriously I am loving this book so much. Sadly I've had car trouble and been at my sisters all day without the book. I'm up to around chapter 9 and honestly I can't get over how good it is. It's brilliant so far. So many twists and how the characters are becoming connected. Acid Man one seriously mad lunatic pretty graphic in my mind those chapters and Matt with Amy and Kelly piecing things together. I'm loving it. I'm about to go and read more. It does have a Silence of The Lambs feel to it. So far it's like Pike of old is back. I'll let you know when I've read more. I'm a tad worried about putting spoilers on here as people may not have read it hence my wording. So far ten out of ten.

Dear Gwenz! Yay! I am so happy that you got the book. And that you are reading it! I can not wait to see AMERICAN GANGSTER which comes out on DVD today. (tuesday) That has Denzel Washington in it. I love Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe, Dakota Fanning, Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicholas Cage, Sally Field, and Julia Roberts. I am sure that there are more than that though! I just love to watch movies. The movie I was watching is actually older on DVD. It came out last year. It was good though. It had Samuel L. Jackson in it. Well, Happy Readings! Talk to you soon!

I got it. Yeah... I was so excited it actually came from New Zealand of all places, a shock to see the address being that. I've only read the first chapter and it has the old Pike feel. I know it's going to be where I can't put it down. Just popped Krissy to bed and I'm going to sit myself down and enjoy. I shall let you know where I'm up to and what I think. My first surprise was the quality of the book, I've never known such a cheap quality paperback, all recycled paper, not that, that is bad and the cover was very thin but a friend in the U.S said same cover etc. over there. Still it's the words true. I like Matt's character although his revenge boarders on craziness to me but hey it's only first chapter so I can't wait to see how it all ties together with the serial killer etc. I'm not working at the moment, my back is playing up big time. I fell down my stairs oh pain. I can imagine your job would be so rewarding and really hard but what a giving profession. I've never heard of that movie is it new to the movies or dvd? Gosh fav. movies Harry Potter of course lol. Besides them I like such randomly different movies. I love A Walk to Remember with Mandy Moore. I love a good cry. Don't like to be scared too much although when I was a teen I loved horror now it just freaks me out. I love a good comedy Knocked Up and Chuck & Larry was really funny. But I also like thrillers or something with a twist. Even kids movie, yes I know sad I watched Mean Girls and Aquamarine with my daughter and enjoyed them heaps. Quite often her movies are better than mine. I love certain actors in movies. I will watch their movies just for them like Johnny Depp, Nicole Kidman, Denzel Washington, Harrison Ford and I'm sure there is heaps more, just can't think. Not to say I like everyone they do but I know it will be a pretty good movie. Who are your fav. actors? Gosh you are doing brilliantly hearing from CP. He's pretty good at emailing back it's like I so want him in a chat room so I can ask him all sorts of questions and talk about his books and characters. That would be brilliant. You should ask him. Anyway I'm off to read. Shall let you know what I think.
