Can't believe it's February already! Reading any good books?

I'm still working on The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby. It's a very inspiring book.

Started book #5 of the Sookie Stackhouse series last night. I'm about half way through now. At least their quick reads.

Today I started and finished Knit, Purl, Die. A total fluff book, wasn't even very good. I picked it up at the library off the 7 day loan shelf.

From the same shelf I just started The Fall of Eden, by Richard Michaels.

Wow, they must be quick reads. It seems like you're going through a book a day!

Well, at least it didn't waste too much of your time since you were able to finish it in a day. I hope The Fall of Eden is much better.

What genre do you like to read? I was asking for recommendations a few weeks back. I'll see if any will fit the bill.


I'm reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Pretty captivating so far.

I will read almost anything. Maybe I'll try a Jodi Picoult book. Everyone I know who has read her books loves them.

Yes, they are. To me, anyway. But, I finished all four Twilight books in a week and it only took that long because I had to wait a day or two to get the fourth one.

So, I started book #6 today. I think my neighbor brought 10 over?? So, I'm not sure if there are more after that or if that's it.

Oh, I love Jodi Picoult. I think I've read most, if not all her books. I can't tell you which ones are my favorites but I know that Nineteen Minutes and My Sister's Keeper are among the popular ones.

Yep, there are 10 books in the Sookie Stackhouse series. #11 is due out in May. Are you liking the books any better now that you are more into the series?

I finished The Hunger Games last night. Okay, I really want to read Catching Fire now. I heard it was even better than the first. But I will resist because I don't want to wait too long to read the third in the trilogy.

I just started Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich. Loving it already.

Oh boy, that was very quick! It took me a while to finish it, but I loved that book. The DVD is coming out on Tuesday, I can't wait to see it because I love Rachel McAdams

Fall of Eden was pretty good. Dies the Fire, S M Stirling was a better "post apocalyptic" book/ series.

I read two fantasy books this weekend. Both were "re-tellings".

Tiger heart (peter david) is based on peter pan and it was good.

Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier is a "beauty and beast" type story and it was GREAT! No hairy monster, no singing candleabra. It was more real... if one can say that of a book based in a fantasy world.

Now I'm reading Delilah, India Edghill. So far so good, but don't look for biblical accuracy

I'm finally up to Assassins.

I was going to just read the wiki articles and skip on up to Glorious Appearing, but after reading the wiki for three of the books, I remembered that the books do have some great moments and decided to continue through with reading the whole series...

Yep, Sundays at Tiffany's is by James Patterson.

I finished Finger Lickin' Fifteen yesterday. It's hilarious. Quite a few laugh out loud moments. Loved it.

I'm now reading Blood Game by Iris Johansen, another Eve Duncan book.
