I just finished 'The Help' and have started 'Making Your Mind Up' by Jill Mansell. I figured I could use some mindless chick lit that's not gonna make my cry.

I just finished reading Entwined by Heather Dixon. It's a little twist on the fairytale The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces (aka The 12 Dancing Princesses). I LOVED it.

I'm about to start on Mastiff by Tamora Pierce. It's her newest book. But first I need to finish my Beauty and the Beast earrings.

How cool!

I just finished reading Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick. It was okay. I think I might have forgotten too much of the first book.

I started reading Linger by Maggie Steifvater.

I discovered the YA in recent years. I'm learning to diversify my reading. I like them bc they are great, light reads.

Sorry, I had to laugh at this. I hope you find your book soon!

I'm reading Forever by Maggie Stiefvater and Eve by Iris Johansen on my Nook.

I like the Wolves of Mercy Falls series much better than the Hush, Hush series. The writing, the storyline...

I've been putting off reading the Eve trilogy. I guess I can't put it off any longer. Once I do, I will finally find out once and for all, after all these years, what happened to Bonnie... I guess that's why I've been putting it off. I've loved the Eve Duncan series and don't want to see it end.

They only seem to hide the books that I really really want to find out what happens If I am *meh* about the book, they leave it alone

In preparation for the movie, I am reading through The Hunger Games again. I LOVE this book!

The boys and I are reading through Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I have started but haven't gotten far yet in The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan.

Veann! Good to see you here again! I loved the first 2 books in the series but Mockingjay left me a bit discontented. Do you know if they are making all three into movies or just the first one?

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.

I am on a Jill Mansell run. I have read 2 others of hers since the first and have one more to read and I'll have finished all the ones of hers that they have in the library.

Are Jill Mansell books chick lit or romance? I have a bunch of her books on my phone, that I got as freebies a while back. Since you've read them all, I assume they are good.

I finished Eve. Which left off with a HUGE cliffhanger. Thank goodness I have the rest of the trilogy. I'm trying to decide whether to jump right into Quinn or restrain myself and take a little breather with another ebook.

I also started Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah.

A woman from work lent it to me. I will probably rent the movie when I am done (if it's out).

I loved the book, too. Sara Gruen is a great storyteller. I have Ape House on my nightstand right now.

I remember it took you forever! lol Did you ever tell us what you thought of the book?

I just finished Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. Wow, what a powerful book. She certainly knows how to tug on heartstrings.

I think I'll pick up a cozy for my next read. I need something more lighthearted!

And I am still working on Quinn on my nook.
