I'm about a fourth of the way done with reading The  Hunger Games. It's not bad, but I like my nove better: I'm No P. I. Alan Zacher

    I'm currently reading Bombay Mixx. A friend recommended recently and I'm already quite impressed. I love women's fiction but this is a bit different to the usual stuff I read. So far I'm really liking it! It's funny but with some juicy bits in it. A really good read so far.

    Just finished reading THE KEY (Simon Toyne) his sequel to SANCTUS. It is an awesome story. I liked SANCTUS better, as the woman Liv was more active participant and seemed rather passive in the sequel. But still very entertaining.

    I recently finished up "Too Big to Fail" by Andrew Sorkin (great book for the record). I'm almost done reading a commentary on Revelations by John MacArthur, and I also recently finished the first book in the Harry Potter series....... I know, I know, I'm ridiculously late, but better late than never.  :)

    Just finished .  It was a library borrow. . . . .a bit out of my usual comfort zone -- which is why I borrowed rather than bought -- but not a bad story.  May very well read the next - I believe there are currently 3 in the series.



    This is a great series!  I first heard about it listening to a Denver AM Talk show - the host interviewed Farnworth.   I've read the first two and have the third one in queue!

    I recently finished Stephen King's non-fiction, "On Writing." Although I'm not a King fan, I found the section on how he prepares for his first rewrite to be very helpful.

    I have just finished another novel by Stuart Ayris. The time the newly published The Bird That Nobody Sees (FRUGALITY - Book 2) which is equally well written but with some very funny aspects too.

    Yesterday I read an "extended preview" of DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT by Laini Taylor -- SO GOOD!! (It was a booklet handed out at BEA this year, apparently. My friend snagged me a copy.) I can't wait for the full book to be released in November!

    Now today I've started A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL by Suzanne Young.

    I found a trade paperback that puts together a bunch of pulp fiction stories from the 1930s and 40s featuring the character The Spider in a used bookstore.  Yes...PAPER!  Loving it.
    The new thriller TEXT is available now!

    I'm currently reading King's Champion by Cas Peace. If you like epic fantasy, then you'll probably like her Artesans of Albia series. I loved book one, King's Envoy, last year, and I'm really enjoying King's Champion.

    I was given a copy of Notes from An Exhibition by Patrick Gale and was told I would like it. I'd never heard of him before, so went in with no expectations whatsoever.

    I'm about half way through now and I'm very glad I was introduced to him. I'm loving his style - very measured and poised, and the story is wonderful. Not an edge of your seat thriller, by any means, but very pleasant to spend time with.

    Will definitely be seeking out more of his work...

    A little over halfway through.  Not bad.  Not great. . .solid 3* so far.  Genre is a bit hard to define.  Sort of historical, but not really, more like alternate world -- not a lot of magic but definite magical creatures referenced -- no technology, though there was a reference to someone having photographs which was a bit disconcerting.  



    Latest of the Alexandra Cooper series. . . . .good so far, as expected. :) Legal Thriller/Procedural with the twist this time is that she's in France with her boyfriend instead of NY City.

    Just finished this - another one out of my usual genre that I picked up for 99p as a KDD. A bit lightweight and occasionally predictable but a pleasant enough read if you're lazing on a beach somewhere. Sadly I'm not.....  ::)




    Now reading the second of Steve Berry's 'Cotton Malone' series. Not bad so far - the kind of action/adventure type stories that Boyd Morrison and James Rollins do so well.

    I just finished Wool by Hugh Howey. Fantastic novel and destined to be a science fiction classic.
