Default Whatcha Reading Feb 2009?

New month...New books. What are you all reading?


I just started reading a book called What a Girl Wants by Kristin Billerbeck. I'm really enjoying it so far. About a 31 yr old single women on her journey. And not the journey of finding a man....just on her journey of life.

As an English student, most of my reading revolves around college. This month I'm reading 'Jude the Obscure' by Thomas Hardy and rereading 'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bronte (for the third time!) .

I have to admit, Jude is quite boring, but I absolutely LOVE Jane Eyre. It's a fantastic book. Definitely one of the best classics .

That sounds good!

My book club just finished The Alchemist, and this month we are reading The Middle Place, which I think I will like. I'm going to try to pick up a copy today.

What kind of lycan books do you read? I'm highly into vampire & witches kind of books..but I've never seen any lycan books.


Well..I guess they have lycans in the Sookie Stackhouse books..but they dont really call them that. My dh says that they are though..so I dunno? LoL!! He likes lycans.

I'm getting ready to read "Walking in circles before lying down." I know sounds strange, however it is a New York Times Bestseller. Its by Merrill Markoe. Its a humorous tale a of a girl, her life and lessons from her pit-bull mix dog.
