Top 2 Tuesday

I feel terrible that I have not updated about my weekend, but things are crazy at the Gabel and Upton households. There has just been a lot going on. Most of the time I feel like I don't have time to sit down and eat dinner.

Well, it's Tuesday so that means Top 2 Tuesday featured by The Undomestic Momma. This week's topic is Favorite Books. I always take the time to read in an evening (except during finals time). I love crime books and things to do with the law. I also love suspensful books.

1. A Time to Kill by John Grisham

This is my all-time favortie book. The movie is fantastic too. Actually it is the movie that made me first decide that I wanted to become an attorney. The story line is wonderful. It's a little sad but in the end justice is served and to me that is what matters. For the longest time I thought that this was a true story only to find out just a few years ago that it wasn't. That alone should show you how great of a writer John Grisham is. I also love all of his other books. That are great stuff.

2. Blind Alley by Iris Johansen

One of my sister-in-laws brought me a whole stack of books by Iris Johansen. This was the first that I read and it was a great book. It is full of suspense. One of the great things about Johansen's books is that the characters will reappear in other books too. You follow the same people. This book is definately a page turner.

I occassionally will true crime books. I'm such a nerd though. Even the real life books that I read are about crimes too.

Head over to Taylor's blog at The Undomestic Momma and link up.
