Wow, start of 4th quarter already! Please share with us what you are reading, and let all of our lists grow longer.

I am about 250 pages into Before I Die

It's a young adult read about a 16 year old who is dying of cancer, only has a few months to live, and before she dies she makes a list of things she would like to do.

I'm a little over half way done with the third book of the Game of Thrones series, it's really good!

Halfway done Changeless (second book in the Parasol Protectorate series). Very funny Steampunk series.

About halfway through Charles Dickens' Bleak House.

I just finished The Tin Ticket which is about nineteenth century British women who were transported to Australia for minor crimes.

I am currently rereading Grey Is The Color Of Hope, poet Irina Ratushinskaya's memoir of her years in a Soviet labor camp.

When I get sick of that I plan to move on to Season To Taste, about a wannabe chef who loses her sense of smell after an automobile accident.

I have just started to read the help. I would like to finish it before watching the movie.

LOVED The Help. Haven't seen the movie yet either.

I'm reading Hunger Games, finally. Totally into it. Very easy read, but also very good. Almost done, but I'm on a wait list (library) for the next one. I hope I'm next in line 'cause I'm almost ready for it and I don't want to start something else in the meantime.

Currently reading Fall of Giants, by Ken Follett. It's the third in his big epic series, after Pillars of the Earth (which I hated) and World Without End (which I loved).

I just finished White Cat by Holly Black. It's an easy YA novel about deception and feeling as though you don't belong. It was a good, easy read. I'm also trying to read The Secret History, but I just can't get into it. Oh and on my phone I've got Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovitch. I love the Plum series sans the holiday books.

I just read "The Woman Who Wouldn't" by Gene Wilder. It was a sweet little book, though really short (took about an hour to read).

I couldn't help but picture Wilder as the male character being charming and witty.

I'm smack in the middle of Under the Dome by Stephen King.
I am not consistent with it, but I am enjoying it.

Oooo! I guess I need to get World Without End, cause I kinda liked The Pillars of the Earth. After reading 1000 or so pages, though, I was ready for something else to read.

Now, I'm halfway through the first book in the A Game of Thrones series. It took awhile to get into it, but it's really good now.

I'm reading One Door Away From Heaven By Dean Koontz.

It's okay, but I'm a fast reader and have been reading this one for about 3 weeks. Can't get into the characters.
