Anybody read "Skyscraper"...the story line sounds interesting.
I read it and it was pretty good, I really liked the story line and the different characters, sometimes it was hard to remember who was who and how they were related in the book but overall it was pretty good. 8)

"Love the one you're with" James Earl Hardy. I've been trying to read it and it's **** me. I can't get past ch. 6 and I was already **** off at ch. 2. "Hand-me-down heartbreak" Tajuana "TJ" Butler. It's aiight but the story moves a lil too slow for my liking.

Thieves Paradise was boring to me. And Rosayln McMillian books are just somethin I cant get into, especially Blue Collar Blues and This Side of Eternity. And some book I read, "A thin Line" was a waste of my $5 and 4 hours it took to read it. And with Omar Tyree, For the Love of Money just didn't live up to my expectations. I read Flyy Girl cover to cover countless times, but the sequel just failed to deliver. Diary of a Groupie could have been a whole lot better, especially with detailed background information.

I liked Soulmates Dissipate and the sequel although some parts I thought were unrealistic and she didn't explain some events. I didn't like between lovers or Thieves Paradise, I don't know why, but I couldn't really get into between lovers, and thieves paradise was not like his others. I also didn't like He's just a friend by Mary B. Morrison.

Someone mentioned how HORRIBLE "Yo-Yo Love" was...I try to read different black authors to get them some exposure but I should've kept that two nights and done something else... "B-More Careful" was also HORRIBLE...'nuff said Another book that was good but really predictable..."True to the Game"...I liked the beginning but then it started getting very unrealistic and extreme...I am sure there are some people who can atest to living like they did but since I have never seen it, it seemed like a bit much. "Diary of a Groupie" was boring and I have got past the part when she got stopped by the private investigator...That is all I can tell you!!! "The Lies Men Tell and the Secrets They Keep" was a book that was either really poorly put together or really boot-legged. I bought it from the from Black Authors Tour when it came to campus and read it in one night but after I got done, I was left thinking "Was that all?" I am sure I will think of more considering all I do is read, but I will have to come back for those...

I had to stop reading Diary of A Groupie...It was just slow. I finally got my book back from my sistah-friends and it was disappointing. Then there was Skyscrapers by Zane and that book was just not up to par with her others.
