I read some really good books this week including Leah Remini’s must read experience about Scientology called Troublemaker:

From page one I was entranced by Leah’s life, growing up in Brooklyn then getting into Scientology and breaking into Hollywood.

I’ve seen the documentaries and read a few books on the cult known as Scientology and am intrigued about the people who join. Leah breaks it all down and some of it is hard to believe but you know its real which illustrates the notion that “truth is stranger than fiction.”

I admit to being very curious about Tom Cruise and the celebs involved in Scientology, those chapters were so unbelievable, I couldn’t stop reading.  I highly recommend this book!

Also gripping is Breaking Wild by Diane Les Becquet. This story takes place in the wilderness where a woman goes missing after hunting elk and its up to the female Ranger and her dog to find this mysterious woman. Its told in alternating points of view from the missing woman, Amy and the Ranger, Pru.

I really wanted to know how it ended, I was prepared for either a devastating ending or a happy one. Lots of details in this book about the wilderness and hunting. One thing is clear, I’d never survive if lost in the wild.

Due out February 2016.

I was really interested to read Lucy Clarke’s new novel, The Blue, for a few reasons. One, I have read and enjoyed her other books and two, I am  completely addicted to Bravo’s show about people who work on a luxury yacht called Below Deck and have no trouble imagining deck hands on a yacht, sailing around the world.

I just started this one last night and here’s the premise:

Lana and her best friend Kitty leave home looking for freedom—and that’s exactly what they find when they are invited onto The Blue, a fifty-foot yacht making its way from the Philippines to New Zealand. The crew is made up of a group of young travellers bitten by wanderlust, and it doesn’t take long for Lana and Kitty’s dream of sea-bound romance to turn into reality.

Both women fall under the hypnotic spell of The Blue, spending their days exploring remote islands and their rum-filled nights relaxing on deck beneath the stars. But when one of their friends disappears overboard after an argument with another crewmember, the dark secrets that brought each of them aboard start to unravel.

Doesn’t it sound so good? Gripping!
