Default Whatcha Readin' June 2010

I'm about halfway through The Dreyfus Affair by Peter Lefcourt, and then on deck I have Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth (about a vampire who's a special secret agent to the President) and Play Dead by Ryan Brown (3 words: zombie. football. players)

I am currently finishing the second trilogy by Robin Hobb called The Tawney Man trilogy. The first was the Farseer trilogy, starting with Assassin's Apprentice. Anyone in to fantasy, I highly recommend them!

I have to read Crime and Punishment for school. However... my "pleasure" reading is:

Small Animal Clinical Nutrition



It's a textbook... but it is my pleasure reading.


I'm also just reading whatever I feel like reading. My other "pleasure" book is a little more understandable. Seabiscuit.

ETA: The funny thing is that I'm seventeen... so yeah... will be a senior in high school this year. So yeah... and these things are what I'm reading for fun?

I am reading Eat Pray Love, again. Next on my list are the Sookie Stackhouse books... LOVE True Blood so I am hoping the books are better as they usually are in the case of Books vs. Movies/Shows. I have a whole summer where I have nothing to do, but spend time with the pup and the nieces and nephews. I plan to read a ton!

Funny that you say this, because I've read all the Sookie Stackhouse books except the newest one...Dead in the Family, which I just picked up today and am excited to start tonight

The book are definitely better than the show! I like the show a lot, but I've been reading the books before the show even came on and they are excellent!

Still trudging my way through Last Night In Twisted River by John Irving. But I also just borrowed digital copies of Books 2 and 3 in the Greywalker series by Kat Richardson

YAY That makes me feel a ton better! I looked through it and the first two books seem to be the first two seasons?

The Third Twin - Ken Follett, and after that I'll start on the second book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.

A good book and a cup of ginger tea keeps my mind (and my wanna-snack hands) occupied before bed!

Yeah, that's what it seems to me. The show is a little different from the books, but each season one seems to follow book one, and the same with season/book 2. They're really good, I'm excited for you to read them LOL!
