Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

Fingers Crossed #11 is Better

Ten Big Ones:  Stephanie Plum #10 by Janet Evanovitch

Romantic Thriller

Stephanie Plum is out of control.  Seriously, she needs to get it together.

She's still living in a dump, still working for her uncle, still can't do her job even half-way decently.  Her on again/off again relationship with a great guy is definitely off again and she can't help put push him away.  All that is mostly the plot of the book which is mixed in with some really bad criminals who are determined to kill her, again.  She goes to the only person who doesn't mind bending the rules for her, again.  She skates by on the skin of her teeth, again. This girl.  I feel like starting a fund so she can get a life coach. 

I feel the plot in the last book was starting to wear a bit thin, but this book made a bit of comeback.  I'm hoping it might be a turn-around for Plum.  I've been through ten books with her, but it's getting a bit monotonous to watch her make the same mistakes without learning anything, kind of like Rex on his gerbil wheel.  Fingers crossed that #11 will bring something new.
