***UPDATE: August, 2001 ---
There are quite a few Amazon readers here who have emailed me, wanting to know why I rate my reviews mostly a 5 stars. My answer is simple... I take time to research the books I read. You see, I'm not fond of renting books in the library. I don't have the time to go back and forth. Unless it is lent to me by my sister or my friends, I prefer to buy my books for KEEPS. I… Read more

There are quite a few Amazon readers here who have emailed me, wanting to know why I rate my reviews mostly a 5 stars. My answer is simple... I take time to research the books I read. You see, I'm not fond of renting books in the library. I don't have the time to go back and forth. Unless it is lent to me by my sister or my friends, I prefer to buy my books for KEEPS. I also don't have time to waste on a book that doesn't suit me. Therefore, I research here in Amazon to see what books are of a worthy read. Most of the books I read are 4 1/2 - 5 stars rating already before I pick them up, however, be aware that they do not necessarily end up with the same results. For few exceptions, I try not to buy books that are less than 4 stars rating here in Amazon. Unless of course if it is a new release by my favorite author or if the synopsis piqued my interest then I will take a chance to buy and read it. I have never given '1 star rating' on a book yet... It will be sad for me and a waste of my time, as well as heart breaking to the author... I admire all AUTHORS, you see... I think their determination and attempt to write a story regardless of the outcome is commendable. So, I pray hard not to stumble across a book worthy of 1 star rating! I thank you all for your emails, your feedbacks and your reviews as well.

Ever since I became a reviewer here in Amazon, I have been lucky in my book reading. Aside from my sister, Peggy's book suggestions.... I have read so many worthy books in the past months & I owe it to Amazon & the rest of the reviewers! Thanks for your time in sharing your opinions. I truly hope my book reviews have also help you the same way your opinions have helped me in picking a more enjoyable read.
:-) Hi, My name is Abbys (pronounce as A-bis not Ah-bis). I'm located in Moreno Valley, California, USA. I am a nurse and a Swatch collector. My sister, Peggy Clarence Lua (Amazon nickname: CCAPCA or Peggy Clarence), was the one who got me hooked on reading... it is definitely cheaper than shopping and Swatch collecting! :-) I enjoy reading Historical Romance Novels. However, there are some exemptional contemporary romance books that interest me as well. I haven't venture out of romance novels just yet though. So far, my favorite authors are Julie Garwood, Jude Deveraux, Judith McNaught, Kat Martin, Karyn Monk, Nicole Jordan, Teresa Medeiros, Johanna Lindsey, Julia Quinn & Gaelen Foley. I also enjoy books written by Virginia Henley, Jill Barnett, Katherine Kingsley, karen Hawkins, Robin Lee Hatcher, Madeleine Hunter & Karen Robards. If you have any book suggestions, please feel free to email me. I would love to try out your suggestions especially the ones you picked as the best. Aside from my books and my Swatch Watches, I also collect Music CD's, International Stamps and Postcards. I enjoy swimming, traveling and surfing the net. But nothing can top the quality time I spend with my husband and my family.
I have a homepage you can surf on if you are interested. You will see more of me, my books, my Swatch collection and even have pictures of my recent (April,2000 and March, 2001) trip to Philippines and Hong Kong.
