Neither have I.

I can't right now, but I think I might try to revive the book club in the coming weeks if there is interest.

I'm revisiting my childhood. I'm re-reading the Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace. I got Betsy and Tacy and Tib from the library yesterday. I have to wait for them from other libraries since my library doesn't seem to have the entire series, only the first book.

That's fun. I can't wait to read Roald Dahl books to my little one.

I have just started Sarah's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay. It's been a long time since I've read a WWII holocaust related novel.

I remember reading a couple of the Roald Dahl books to my oldest. Then he started to read and now he reads them himself.

I have Sarah's Key on my TBR list for the year.

I finished Quinn and Betsy and Tacy and Tib yesterday.

I started reading Death by the Dozen by Jenn McKinlay. As usual, I took a sneak peek at the recipes in the back of the book. It was filled with vegetable infused cupcakes... No thank you!

I finished Forever. I definitely liked this series.

I'm almost finished with Eve. I think I might be able to finish tonight before I go to sleep.
They are doing the whole trilogy, though it will probably be four movies, I think. I loved all three books so much! I think they are great, all three captivating, gripping, and heartbreaking.



Edit: I have read several books since last update. I am currently reading Glass by Ellen Hopkins. It is quite good as was Crank.

I've been reading bunches, but mostly light reading.

I'm currently reading ***** My Dad Says by Justin Halpern. I'm spending most of my time reading, going and .

I'm also reading Pretties by Scott Westerfeld on my nook.

eta: That's funny. On the book, the "bad" word uses an exclamation instead of the letter i and that's how I typed it, yet it was still bleeped off.

I am now reading Girl, Stolen by April Henry. I just finished The Giver and really liked it other than the abrupt ending. I have been reading YA books very quickly lately. I've read eleven this year already (not all YA, but mostly).

I am reading 'Past Perfect' Susan Isaacs. I found it on the bookshelf at work. It's OK so far. Not my usual type of book.

There is another book after The Giver called Gathering Blue. Not a sequel but slightly connected.

I read that one a few years back. It was a tough read, emotionally, for me at least. I did enjoy the author's ability to weave the different story lines together--some books struggle to do that in a natural-feeling way.

The boys and I are nearing the finish in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. We will, of course, move on to Half-Blood Prince next. In an effort to not be late to the craze, I am reading through the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. It's alright and I did enjoy Darker more than the first; but it's certainly not going to be my new Hunger Games. I like it, I just don't love it, is all. I am also reading Gone by Michael Grant, which I AM loving. It is an awesome book and I have no idea what is going to happen next! Can't wait to find out!

I'm trying to make my way through Brisingr (the third Eragon book) by Christopher Paolini so I can finally read the forth one and finish the series.

I'm also reading The Variant Effect by G. Wells Taylor on my Kindle. It was free from Amazon when I got it and it might still be. I like the idea of the book, but the main character keeps complaining about his hernias which is kind of annoying.

I am currently reading The Girl in the Steel Corset, by Kady Cross. This is the first in The Steampunk Chronicles. Good so far!
