I'm reading Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley -- a food memoir but in graphic novel format. Fun!

11-03-2013, 07:05 PM
I just finished the last Sue Grafton, W is for Wasted, and tried the latest Kathy Reich..Unfor. for me I just couldn't get into it at all. I am currently looking for a new read.

I've been reading low carb cook books online if that counts? I am on the waiting list for the latest Jefferson Bass novel at the library.

Just finished Parasite by Mira Grant

Highly recommended for people that like zombie type scifi. It ISNT zombies but similar

11-05-2013, 10:41 AM
Just finished A Darkness Strange and Lovely, by Susan Dennard. It's the second in a YA zombie trilogy and I was so disappointed, after the first book being so great :(

Next up-Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz

Just finished Parasite by Mira Grant

Highly recommended for people that like zombie type scifi. It ISNT zombies but similar

If you like Mira Grant, try her other stuff October Daye and InCryptid written under Seanne McGuire. They are pretty good but Urban Fantasy as opposed to Apocalyptic.

Currently Reading:
Midnight Blue Light Special
The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
On the Edge

Finished Reading:
Discount Armageddon
Chimes at Midnight

I am almost finished with 12 years a slave. Not sure what I will start next?

11-05-2013, 10:19 PM
Just finished Mother,mother by Koren ZAilckas. Now reading "The Rosie Project" by Graeme Simsion.

11-05-2013, 10:31 PM
I'm reading A Street Cat Named Bob, I love this book.

I have been putting off reading the book, Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting for a book group. I'm not crazy about the way it's written.

Sometimes I read the book, Every Patient Tells A Story, I checked it out from my hospital's library, quite a good read.

11-06-2013, 03:56 PM
I'm still struggling through book 5 of the Wheel of Time series. Only 150 pages left, so hopefully I can barrel through this weekend. I also just picked up The Fault in our Stars, but I'm saving that for a night I'm home alone, since I understand it'll make me cry buckets.

Other than that, I may check out Mira Grant's books - sounds interesting. Too bad the libraries in my area aren't the best; we don't have too much choice (unless I want to read Harlequin romances or spiritual fiction).

11-06-2013, 04:59 PM
I've got to finish Catching Fire. Then I'm going to read Ender's Game as I really enjoyed the movie. I had read the Hunger Games prior to the movie, but never did finish Catching Fire as I go through reading phases and just have not been in the mood.

After that..... I don't know. I need to find a good fantasy series.

11-06-2013, 05:30 PM
I am rereading the Outlander series. Anxiously awaiting the new book next spring!!

I love scifi, so I will check out some of the above suggestions. I haven't read anything GREAT in a while. :-(

11-06-2013, 06:27 PM

The Fault In Our Stars looks really good. I always like to find good, interesting, fun reads.

I'm reading

Female Chauvinist Pigs by Ariel Levy
Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters
The Orc King by R.A. Salvatore
How to Meditate by Pema Chodrun
and The Feminist Porn Book

I am almost always reading too many books and I really need to get through the Drizzt Do'Urden series already! I found Sarah Waters this month. She looks like a good LGBTQIA author, which can be a hard find. I've been working through How to Meditate for a while and it's a really lovely book for anyone who's trying to make that a part of their lives and the other two books are books about feminism, so if you're into that they're really good so far.

I just started reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. I've never read any of his books before, but it seems really interesting.

I've read American Gods, Stardust, and some of the Sandman comics from him. He's a great writer.

I've read a few of his books and enjoyed them, but not the one you're reading. Hope you'll pop back in and let us know what you thought of it when you're done. :)

The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron.

11-21-2013, 11:52 AM
Finished reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane, for those that were asking. The writing was excellent, and the content was interesting, but it didn't really hold my attention all that well. I will most likely try one of his other novels if there are any suggestions. I started on A Game of Thrones last night. I've had the books for a few years, just never got around to reading them.

I'm loving Provence, 1970 by Luke Barr. It's about James Beard, Julia Child, M.F.K. Fischer and other influential foodies who all end up in the same region of France at the same time in late 1970 at a time when their begins to be a shift in the way they see cooking in America. Fascinating.

The amazing adventures of diet girl by Shauna Reid

11-22-2013, 09:12 PM
I haven't started it yet but I just got the book Killing Jesus as a Thanksgiving gift, it should be a good read.

I also picked up A Lion Named Christian (I think that's the title). It's very interesting.

The bride wore size 12. it is the 4th book in the heather wells series by meg cabot. it is not her best book series but it is still funny to read. especially when i got time to waste at work.

11-23-2013, 03:13 AM
Listened to Valerie Bertinelli's book Losing It, and Gaining my life back One Pound At A Time. Nice to be able to listen to it while exercising!

11-23-2013, 05:05 AM
Just finished Sharp Objects, it was a good, quick read

11-23-2013, 10:24 AM
I'm currently reading Ender's Game so that I can see the movie. I hate seeing the movie first when I know it's based on a book.

11-23-2013, 05:46 PM
Shea: I loved The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl -- but be careful. I found it triggering at some moments. But, in the end, it was more helpful than harmful. I just had a few bad days in the middle and had to pick myself up again and get back on track just as she did.

helwa588: I really enjoy the Heather Wells series by Meg Cabot but haven't picked up the latest book yet.

CJinTx: I'll be interested in how you like Valerie Bertinelli's book. I like weight loss memoirs but haven't read hers, even though I was a big fan of hers back in the late 70s.

I'm still reading, and loving, Provence, 1970 by Luke Barr. It makes me want to go to France. And eat. And, look at art and architecture.

11-23-2013, 11:06 PM
I just read the e-book The Lighter Side of Living Large, it was a fun read, unfortunately I didn't real use til I was done there were links to a blog that went along with the book, I'll have to read those.

I also read Mrs. Mike, I enjoyed it.

I'm currently reading Trail of 32, not the most well written, but interesting memoir so far.

11-23-2013, 11:14 PM
Mainecyn- I love Bones, but really am having a hard time reading Kathy Reichs, maybe I'll pick up the one I've been trying to get through again since you reminded me... :D
