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.

If you enjoyed that series, I highly suggest you look into Sylvia Day. I love her books way more that the 50 shades series.

Re: What are you reading ?

Reading is my favorite thing. I am reading A Dance With Dragons (Game of Throne series). My favorite is to read books that have been movies. Then after I am done with the book I watch the move. I have read all the True Blood Books, Silence of the Lambs series, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo set, Hunger Games Books, etc.

I loved the Southern Vampire Mysteries (True Blood) and the Millennium (Girl w/ the Dragon Tattoo) series!

Yay for GWDT trilogy! Hunger Games was a delight  but the last book was so scathingly awful I felt bad for Collins.

I agree! The second was my favorite.

I semi-recently finished a surprisingly accurate modern English translation of Beowulf thanks to my latest flame. :smileywink:

Right now though...I'm just too busy with/exhausted from work to do much reading. Hopefully that will change in upcoming weeks!

Yayy! <3 Mega love for Beowulf.

Re: What are you reading ?

I like scary books as well. I'm reading the Shining right now but I'm slacking due to exams. 

 

I just finished Haunted by Chuck Palahnuik which was creepy and disgusting. (just the way I like it). If you like creepy books you should read House of Leaves (I'm sure you've heard about it). I also really like the books by Jeff Noon like Vurt and so on. Next on my list is is 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, but there are so many to choose from!

Re: What are you reading ?

My favorite genre is British Detective fiction.

 

Tonight I'm planning on starting "An Unsuitable Job for a Woman" by P.D.James.

Have you read JK Rowling's Cuckoo's Calling?  It's really, really good, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!

I'm repeating myself...... *headdesk*  It has been that kind of day.  At least I'm reading a different book now! :smileyhappy: 

Re: What are you reading ?

And thank you for this thread! Now I can get recommendations from you girls. :smileyhappy:

Re: What are you reading ?

Ah, how I enjoy reading. Lately, been a little lazy though. I enjoy non-fiction, mysteries, philosophical, sci-fi, paranormal and romantic stories. I like reading beauty magazines, too. Nothing better than grabbing a book and sipping on your favorite beverage, wrapped in a cozy blanket.

I'm a fan of fantasy, sci-fi, hard-science fiction, general/classic fiction, and non-fiction that generally falls under social sciences. 

I'm currently at the tail end of Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle (which is a trilogy of trilogies, basically) - I'm in the third volume, The System of the World, seventh book, Currency

Up next I've got A Feast for Crows by GRR Martin - I've been reading these for what seems like ever. I like to read one book from the A Song of Ice and Fire series and then read one light-hearted something (recently: Vincent Calvino Crime Novels by Christopher G. Moore like The Risk of Infidelity Index) and then something else, like one of the books in the Stephenson series, then something else light again, then more Martin. It spaces them out - it's not like we're getting the next book anytime soon! If I get stuck, as one can do with these, I treat it like starting a new volume and space it out with the same cycle of books.

I just finished reading The Pastures of Heaven by John Steinbeck and started Cannery Row by him as well. I really enjoy classic literature and fiction the best.

Re: What are you reading ?

I just started the 2nd book in Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  I am usually not Into sci-fi, but I thought I would try something different.  I am so glad I did!  So far they are full of whimsy, utter ridiculousness, and fun!

I LOOOVE Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! I could read it over and over and over again! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What are you reading ?

Oooh, if you like horror you might like the Let the Right One In book. It's the one both the swedish and american movies were based on. A really different take on living as a vampire...being 12 for a very long time and watching your lovers age =(

Re: What are you reading ?

I loveed that book and the Swedish movie! 

Re: What are you reading ?

The Davinci Code (Ok so I am way behind on this one).
