What are you reading ?

[ Edited ]

I am a book lover! I would rather read than do anything else! So just outta curiosity, What are you ladies (and gentleman)  reading? What's your favorite genre?

 

 

I just finished Blood Vivicani by Beckett 

And I am starting a reread of The song of Ice and Fire (the game of thrones series)

 

My favorite genre by far is horror and Fantasy.

Re: What are you reading ?

I'm reading Harry Potter a l'ecole des sorciers Smiley Very Happy I've read the HP books in English and Spanish, and now attempting to get through the French ones. Aaaaand when my brain starts to hurt from all the French, I switch to Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham. Hoping to get through at least one of these books this weekend!

Re: What are you reading ?

I just finished reading City of Bones, as well as The Mark of Athena. The next book in The Heroes of Olympus series is The House of Hades, and i'm so excited for it to come out in a month. Lol the books are so young for me but idk I like them.

I consider it light reading. Get away from the heavier stuff which I also enjoy. Kinda my escape. I loved reading all the Twilights and Harry Potters, too. I'm unashamedly a Potterhead.

I've finally begun "reading" Dr. Maya Angelou's 7th autobiography, Mom & Me & Mom

 

She's my personal hero and a national treasure and I love hearing her speak. So when I heard there was an audiobook release, read by the author, I was all over it.

Re: What are you reading ?

Just finished a truly creepy horror book about mutant bed bugs of all things. I am now waiting for the new Stephen King to on sale (9-24). I have collected his books from first to last. LOL.

Re: What are you reading ?

Stephen King is a GENIUS! Loveee him.

Re: What are you reading ?

I've been going through The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe for awhile now. I keep having to put it down because I'm so busy but I will get all the way through it! I've already read most of the pieces in there anyway but I kind of like reading through them in chronological order.

 

Got another book on its way to me right now so the giant Poe book is going to have to take a backseat yet again. Smiley Tongue

Re: What are you reading ?

I am obsessed with british detective fiction.

 

From Sir Conan Doyle to modern writers, I LOVE IT.

 

Right now I'm reading The Angel of Darkness by Caleb Carr, which isn't *british* detective fiction but it is turn of the century historical american detective fiction, so I'm liking it ok.  It is the sequel to his novel The Alienist.

@Nebel Have you read any of the Michael Robotham books?  I love the Joe O'Loughlin series.

Sir Conan Doyle is on my list!  Watching Sherlock on BBC makes me want to read the originals - which, I suppose, is backwards...

You can buy the complete works on Kindle for like a dollar.  So worth it, and you will really be able to appreciate how clever the BBC Sherlock is at pulling on source material and updating it to the modern era!! Can't. Wait. For. January!!!! I've been reading so many fan theories about how he did it!

I just finished reading the Happiness Project! It's an amazing book. It reminds me of Eat Pray Love (without the traveling).

 

I just started reading Dr. Amens book Use Your Brain To Change Your Age. I've always liked his talks on KQED and always found them so fascinating and interesting!

 

I like anything that deals with psychology and self-improvement.

Re: What are you reading ?

The Happiness Project is on my buy list for my next Amazon order. I've heard such good things about it from co workers

It's so good and I think anyone can relate to it. It really makes you look at your own life in a positive way! I think I'm going to pick up her other book too, Happier At Home.

I've heard great things about the nook. Can't wait to read it!

Re: What are you reading ?

I am re-reading Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy Smiley Happy

It always takes me forever to finish.

Re: What are you reading ?

I've been meaning to read that! Smiley Happy Alas - perhaps when summer rolls around our the day grows an extra hour. 

Re: What are you reading ?

I love re-reading loved classics.  I usually read The Fountainhead every couple of years...it can take me that long because it's long and definitely not a skimmer, but I love it!

Re: What are you reading ?

I've never read The Fountainhead.  I did re-read East of Eden a few months back.  Next on the list is Brave New World.

Re: What are you reading ?

I keep meaning to read The Fountainhead and just haven't. No excuses, just didn't lol.

Re: What are you reading ?

I love to read and rarely meet a book I don't like. My favorite genre is mystery and I have a bunch of favorite authors that like to keep track of for new additions.

I just finished Hunting Eve by Iris Johansen.  It's part of her Eve Duncan series and ended on a serious cliffhanger.  Thank goodness the next one comes out next month or I'd be really mad lol

I'm just about to start Unseen by Karen Slaughter.

 

A book that is not mystery that I really enjoyed was Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan. It is historical fiction and very well written.
