I am reading several books: Just finished ICED by Karen Marie Moning; just finished Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones and no reading two more; Wheat Belly by William Davis M.D. and The Gamble by Kristen Ashley.
For those who haven't read Karen Marie Moning books, I very strongly recommend her Fever Series

I am reading Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingslover. She came to my town and did a book reading that we went to.
This is what I am reading right now as well. She is one of my favorite authors.
I live in Appalachia so think of her as mine, even if she's from Kentucky, of all places. Anyway, love her, but Prodigal Summer was the last of her novels that I read. I enjoyed pieces of it, but didn't love it. Have not read The Lacuna, [**wow, I'm dumb.] and was wondering about Flight Behavior. When y'all are done I would love to read your thoughts!

**I HAVE read The Lacuna. I feel ridiculous. I was just thinking about it last week and couldn't remember who wrote it or the title, but was remembering the story and main character. I loved it. Silly title. Anyway, liked Poisonwood Bible and the Lacuna immensely (and natch the early stuff with Turtle, the best kid ever), but Prodigal Summer not so much. So.

I am about halfway through Flight Behavior, and I am enjoying it. I don't know if I would say it is her best work ever, but I love her use of language, the characters are interesting, and the plot is engaging and unique. I would recommend it to others.

I'm really enjoying Culinary Intelligence by Peter Kaminsky as my current nonfiction selection. Part memoir, part diet book, mostly just good writing by a food critic about adopting a way of eating that maximizes Flavor per Calorie.

For my fun read, I've got The Search by Nora Roberts. Was someone here reading that last month? I'm really enjoying it. I used to have a fantasy about working with a search and rescue dog until I realized that being allergic to dogs made that a tad unrealistic. Reading about dogs doesn't make sneeze, though!

I know a lot of people will be shocked by this, it is probably his "most loved" character, but I had to struggle to finish it.
We like what we like. I liked " A Prayer For Owen Meany" but no means was it my fave. I would rate " A Son of the Circus" as my favourite and "Cider House Rules" and " A Widow for One Year" as runner ups.

Wow, A Prayer for Owen Meany is in my top 10 books of all time. The ending still gives me shivers!

Still reading Madman's Tale, but Gone Girl came in the mail yesterday and I've been having a hard time putting it down. I already have family members wanting to borrow it.

I thought this group might be interested in a new challenge I just put up in the Challenge forum: New Year's Resolution Reading Challenge

If you want to read any books to support your weight loss journey around the new year, it will be perfect for you!

So I found this fabulously stupid and easy to read paranormal romance series called Real Vampires Have Curves (goes on from there), but it's about a size 14 vampire and her men and escapades.

It's seriously ridiculous, lighthearted and a good bathtub read

I just finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Going back for the next one in the series.

Also finished up The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, fun book. Hope to see more from the author Jonas Jonasson.

My reading is getting lighter and lighter this month.

I finished The Search by Nora Roberts. Fun. The ending isn't realistic, but the reader doesn't really care at that point. It's gotta end that way, so I just went along for the ride.

Now, I'm reading a YA steam punk novel: Goliath by Scott Westerfeld. It's the last book in a fun trilogy set in a re-imagined World War I.

I'm not sure what I'm going to read next if I want something even more light and fun!

I'm reading Elly in Bloom. She's an overweight girl in her early 30s who got divorced after she found hubby in bed with a skinny redhead! She's a florist, and she talks about her weight a lot. It's a really good read so far! I'm usually not into fiction too much unless it's mystery or sci-fi, but I like something nice and light for the holidays. I'm not disappointed!
