Whatcha Been Reading?

It's been a while since I've talked about books, so here are couple that might peak some of people's interest.

Spades By Kristy Evans

SpadesCalise is a young lady, who has had a few problems in her life.  The biggest one is she hates living with her father and step-mother. But she found a way out. Through her new friend Chris and the group he belongs to. All of the members of the group have a mysterious spade tattoo that Calise wants to know more about. But the answers are not coming quickly. And there is a mysterious person telling her to “RUN”.

This is the second book in a series, and I really enjoyed reading it. The book focuses on Calise, who wants a change in her life, and she is willing to go to extremes to make them. The characters were diverse and interesting. And all of them decided to leave behind their old lives to create another. I really liked the fact that each of the characters is extremely hard working.

This book is classified as young adult. But that is mainly due to the fact that most of the characters are teenagers. The topics covered in the book could apply to any age group.
Secret Confession of a Clean Freak-How to have a really clean home without spending your weekends cleaning it by Carole Stannard-Pagan.
Product DetailsIf you are a wee bit unorganized like I am this book is one that you should check out. This book is full of information on how to clean, and organize your home! It even contains a checklist for daily, weekly, and seasonal cleaning. It's just what I needed.
So does anyone have any real good book recommendations for me? Leave a note in the comments, and I'll look into them.
