Michelle

Melanie C.
(6 days ago)Just this afternoon, I started Linda Leaming : Married to Bhutan: How One Woman Got Lost, Said "I Do," and Found Bliss. It starts well. I purchased this in the spring from Amazon.
ladykhalia
(6 days ago)If only I could give it to you,Melanie, I have agreed to send it to someone else already.
ladykhalia
(16 days ago)Laughter Out of Place looks very interesting! I'm putting it on my wishlist.
Melanie C.
(17 days ago)Today I started Holly Morris : Adventure Divas: Searching the Globe for Women Who Are Changing the World. It's written in a conversational style. (I am at the beginning of the second chapter which is page 52.) The complete opposite of this one I finished this morning: Donna M. Goldstein : Laughter Out of Place: Race, Class, Violence, and Sexuality in a Rio Shantytown (Public Anthropology, 9). Very academic writing with insight. A dictionary nearby would assist some readers.
ladykhalia
(20 days ago)Today I started reading James Patterson : 7th Heaven (Women's Murder Club) By James Patterson, Maxine Paetro He's my FAVORITE author. Ya just can't go wrong with this guy.

(1 month ago)Being a constant reader I love my book clubs, but now on this one I'm having a hard time getting a couple books from the same person and when I check the status of when last logged in and it shows he was logged in the day before and still won't reply to my request for books? need to kick him out!
bookit4u
(1 month ago)I'm reading Lackey : Robin and the Kestrel (BARDIC VOICES 2) : Robin and the Kestrel and it's a light, fun book, so far. I will finish listening to Tamora Pierce : Circle Of Magic #03: Daja's Book - Reissue (Circle Of Magic) today and start Tamora Pierce : Briar's Book (Circle of Magic #4) tomorrow. I like Tamora Pierce's older books much better than her newer ones.
Jennifer
(1 month ago)I was in the mood for a good horror story, so today I started Bentley Little : The Walking about dead people who don't stop walking. So far so good!!! The prologue got me hooked right away. This old man dies and just keeps walking around and around while his 2 sons and the grandson watch...totally baffled. Then they follow him to the lake, and watch him walk into it, till he's completely covered over with water. And they never see him again. Then the grandson grows up and goes to college and takes swimming lessons, and he goes back to the lake to the same spot where he last saw his Grandfather, and dives in. And low & behold, his Grandfather is STILL down there walking around.
Michelle 
(1 month ago)In the middle of The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - really enjoying it, a sprawling good read !!
Claire
(1 month ago)I'm reading Peter David : The Long Night of Centauri Prime (Babylon 5: Legions of Fire, Book 1), which is much better than the previous Babylon 5 books I read this year. I'm listening to Tamora Pierce : Emperor Mage (Immortals), which I also like better than the past few Tamora Pierce books I've listened to.
Jennifer
(1 month ago)Currently reading the second book in the Maze Runner series. It's not amazing, but it has a way of sucking you into the novel and getting you hooked.
Cos98
(1 month ago)I started this book yesterday: Joyce Meyer : Knowing God Intimately: Being as Close to Him As You Want to Be. Very insightful for my spiritual path.
ladykhalia
crying :'D

just read the shock of the fall and it is out of this world (wish I could say literally but its not a sci-fi novel...). felt like I began slowly connecting with the character as we learn the unfortunate way his brother died. no matter what book I've picked up lately I cant help but cry, its just nice to see how emotional words can make u and how powerful they truly are. anyone recently read a book like this???? xxx

(1 month ago)I read that recently (Shock of the Fall), it was very moving and well-written - I had a box of tissues on the go too ! I read Gone Girl a while back - quite disturbing if I remember rightly
Claire
(1 month ago)That's how you know how great a book is....when it makes you cry.
Michelle 
(2 months, 5 days ago)I just finished reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

(2 months, 9 days ago)Monday I started James Garner : The Garner Files: A Memoir I LOVE JAMES GARNER!!! And I was very sad to hear of his passing. His stepmother was SO evil to him when he was a kid....It's heartbreaking, especially now.
Michelle 
(2 months, 18 days ago)I'll finish J. Gregory Keyes : Final Reckoning: The Fate of Bester (Babylon 5) before I go to bed and I'll be happy to be done with this trilogy because I didn't like it much. I hope the next Babylon 5 trilogy I read is better. I'll start Mercedes Lackey : The Lark and the Wren (Bardic Voices, Book 1) tomorrow. I'm listening to Tamora Pierce : Squire (Protector of the Small, No. 3).
Jennifer
(2 months, 20 days ago)I am reading Kristin Espinasse : Words in a French Life: Lessons in Love and Language from the South of France. Very light reading and thus I am slightly dismissive of it. It seems almost trite. An easygoing person could enjoy this more than I am.
ladykhalia
(2 months, 25 days ago)Finished reading R. L. Stine : The Babysitter III (Point Horror) this morning. So, I'm gonna go back to reading Peter Falk : Just One More Thing: Stories from My Life I'd started it awhile ago, but got distracted, and put it down. And read other books instead.
Michelle 
(2 months, 27 days ago)Yesterday I stayed home all day because it was raining out, and I was able to read Mary Downing Hahn : Look For Me By Moonlight in one sitting. It was a Young Adult vampire story, and I liked it. Then, last night, I started R. L. Stine : The Babysitter III (Point Horror)
Michelle 
(3 months ago)I finished listening to Tamora Pierce : First Test (Protector of the Small) today and started Tamora Pierce : Page (Protector of the Small). I also finished reading Julia Quinn : The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever and I'll start Patricia A. McKillip : The Bell at Sealey Head tonight before I go to bed.

(3 months, 7 days ago)I'm reading J. Gregory Keyes : Deadly Relations: Bester Ascendant (Babylon 5) and not really enjoying it much. I love Babylon 5, the show, but I've only liked two of the tie-in books I've read so far. I'm listening to Tamora Pierce : Bloodhound: The Legend of Beka Cooper #2 and not really enjoying that one either. :(
Jennifer
(3 months, 11 days ago)Monday I'll start Sue Grafton : "L" is for Lawless (A Kinsey Millhone Mystery) I haven't read one of her books in awhile. This is from a series about a woman detective named Kinsey Millhone. She's like the woman version of TV Private Eye Jim Rockford. I think the best part about these books is the relationship she has with her landlord named Mr. Pitt. He's old and he bakes, and it's kinda like she has a crush on him. It's cute.
Michelle 
(3 months, 26 days ago)The other day I started reading John Jakes : The Gods of Newport I never read a book by John Jakes before. His descriptions of the different characters backgrounds are very detailed. I'm less than 100 pages into it. It's not bad...

(4 months, 4 days ago)LadyKhalia.....I'm glad you had no problem adding the blue links into your posts. :)
Michelle 
(4 months, 4 days ago)Yesterday I started Tina Fey : Bossypants I got this paperback in a mooch. I thought it was gonna be Much funnier. I'm 94 pages into it and so far, I am NOT impressed. I don't know if I want to let my mom borrow it, or just add it to my Inventory.
Michelle 
(4 months, 5 days ago)Right now, I'm on Various : For the Love of Books: 115 Celebrated Writers on the Books They Love Most. The contributions enlighten me on the presence of even more great books.
ladykhalia
(4 months, 13 days ago)Tomorrow I'll start James Patterson : The 6th Target
Michelle 
(4 months, 13 days ago)Today I finished Tess Gerritsen : Peggy Sue Got Murdered (Harper Monogram) and it wasn't till 200 pages into it that it mentions Peggy Sue. She was a corpse in the morgue that had arrived as a Jane Doe earlier in the book.
Michelle 
(4 months, 14 days ago)I'm reading Julia Quinn : The Sum of All Kisses. I don't read much romance, but I love Julia Quinn. I haven't gotten very far into this one yet, but I'm sure I'll finish it this week.
Jennifer
(4 months, 15 days ago)Now, I am reading J. Peder Zane : Remarkable Reads: 34 Writers and Their Adventures in Reading. This is awesome! I've only been reading it a few days and I'm halfway through. Highly recommended.
ladykhalia
(4 months, 17 days ago)I'm almost done reading Tess Gerritsen : Peggy Sue Got Murdered (Harper Monogram) and NOT ONE person is named Peggy Sue, LOL.
Michelle 
(4 months, 17 days ago)WELL, I was reading Lee Goldberg : Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop , and Boy did it sound familiar. I was over 50 pages into it, when I had to check my list.....and yup, I'd already read it. I'm officially turning into my mother!!!! She does this kinda thing constantly. AUUUGGGHHHHHH
Michelle 
(4 months, 22 days ago)Hey,Michelle. I just saw your comment for telling me how to get the words in blue. Right now, I am reading Azar Nafisi : Things I've Been Silent About. Pretty good, I must say.
ladykhalia
(4 months, 22 days ago)I'm reading J. Gregory Keyes : Dark Genesis: The Birth of the Psi Corps (Babylon 5). I love Babylon 5, but never finished reading the books. I just recently watched the show again and dug the books out of the back of my bookcase to finally read them.
Jennifer
(4 months, 23 days ago)Monday I'll start reading Tess Gerritsen : Peggy Sue Got Murdered (Harper Monogram) Tess Gerritsen is one of my favorite authors, so whenever I find one of her earlier books that I never even knew about, then it's a big Hoo-Ha. LOL. WA-HOO!
Michelle 
(4 months, 26 days ago)Yesterday I started Lee Goldberg : Mr. Monk and the Dirty Cop I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! It's based on the "Monk" TV show. There are 15 in the series. The last I'd read of his was in 2011....I had to check my list. As far as I know, the author isn't writing anymore new ones so he can spend more time with his family. I'm gonna have to make this series last.

(5 months, 8 days ago)This morning I also started Patricia Cornwell : Cruel and Unusual The book in that description is a paperback, but the copy I'm reading is a Hardcover. I've read her first 3 books already and this is her 4th in the Kay Scarpetta series. I forgot how graphic she is...
Michelle 
(5 months, 10 days ago)Tomorrow I'll start R. L. Stine : The Baby-Sitter II (Babysitter) The first one was a very fast and easy read. I'm still reading "THE SKIN GODS" at work, but'll be finished soon....I've only got a few pages left.
Michelle 
(5 months, 14 days ago)Shelly Laurenston : Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack) Funny but not for the frail of heart!!
Dragana
(5 months, 14 days ago)TO Ladykhalia.......it took me awhile to learn that trick on my own. Here's how I do it, but I'm sure there's gotta be an easier way. I Browse the book I'm reading. Then when it's on my screen, I highlight the web-address/description at the top and click the mouse with my middle finger to "Copy" it. Then I go to the Forum Link, click Comment, start typing my message, and click again with my middle finger and "Paste" it where I want. It's a lot easier than it sounds. Good Luck!!!
Michelle 
(5 months, 14 days ago)Even though I'm reading "THE SKIN GODS", I'm also reading R.L. Stine : The Baby-sitter #01 (Babysitter) I got it in a recent mooch.
Michelle 
(5 months, 17 days ago)I'm reading Juliet Marillier : Wolfskin (Tor Fantasy). I love most of Marillier's books, but this one is a bit different and it starts slow. I'm pretty sure I'll get to a point where I can't put it down though.
Jennifer
(5 months, 18 days ago)It's always a pleasure to enjoy a book, no matter how long we've had it. Now, I'm reading The Bitch in the House edited by Cathi Hanauer. It's a collection of essays where women authors share their experiences of sex, love, marriage, children and work. How do you get the title and author to appear in blue and underlined? Blue is the color I frequently use for typing.
ladykhalia
(5 months, 18 days ago)Now I'm reading Richard Montanari : The Skin Gods: A Novel of Suspense It's a Large Print edition that I bought at a dollar store a wicked long time ago. It's good too. Don't know why I waited SOOO long to read it.
Michelle 
(5 months, 19 days ago)The Year of Yes: a memoir by Maria Dahvana Headley. The author, living in New York City, agrees to date every man (and woman) that asks her out. In the course of all this, she is led to her husband. She was twenty years old and studying at NYU for writing.
ladykhalia
(5 months, 26 days ago)Radio Shangri-La by Lisa Napoli. It's nonfiction. The author travels to Bhutan and helps organize a FM radio station. It is strictly volunteering. A native of New York, she transplanted to Los Angeles for a number of years and felt dissatisfied. Her trip to Bhutan allowed to reconnect with herself.

(5 months, 21 days ago)Just finished Without Warning by David Rosenfelt, it is a stand-alone (getting away from the Andy Carpenter series) and it was pretty good, it kept me reading and I had it done in one day.
bookit4u
(6 months, 1 days ago)Just about to finish Watching You by Michael Robotham--very good
bookit4u
(6 months, 5 days ago)I'm almost done reading Mercedes Lackey : Alta (Joust #2) (Dragon Jousters), but I'm not enjoying it at all. :( I'll be starting Patricia A. McKillip : The Riddle-Master of Hed later tonight.
Jennifer
(6 months, 6 days ago)This morning I started Nancy Taylor Rosenberg : California Angel It's a small hardcover I bought at a Library book sale. About a woman who saves children, so I'm guessing she's really an Angel. I hope it doesn't end up making me cry, but it probably will.
Michelle 
(6 months, 8 days ago)Reading Taken by Robert Crais, trying to get started with the Joe Pike/Elvis Cole series
bookit4u
(6 months, 9 days ago)This afternoon, I begun The Unedited Diaries of Carolina Maria de Jesus. I read the childhood volume of diaries last month. Both the unedited diaries and the childhood diaries were published posthumously. This was purchased from an online retailer.
ladykhalia
(6 months, 9 days ago)I want to say that all the books I mentioned have been finished. I read over my comments and noticed it seemed as though I was starting without finishing.
ladykhalia
(6 months, 9 days ago)Last night, I begun Life Lessons for Women from Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, the same people who brought us Chicken Soup for the Soul. The questions posed in the book really do make you take inventory of your life.
ladykhalia
(6 months, 10 days ago)Last night, I started Wild Child : Girlhoods in the Counterculture edited by Chelsea Cain. Moon Unit Zappa wrote the foreword. Pretty good, so far.
ladykhalia
(6 months, 10 days ago)I just finished Heavy Rotation: Twenty Writers on the albums that changed their lives edited by Peter Terzian. For a music fiend, this is an interesting read. Todd Pruzan's essay stood out the most. This, too, was on loan from the public library.
ladykhalia
(6 months, 16 days ago)I'm reading "The Decameron" by Boccaccio. Excellent, of course. It's along the lines of "The Canterbury Tales", but better. I'm looking for sheet music for piano, especially "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini".
Peaceopi
(6 months, 19 days ago)I am reading Lucia: Testimonies of a Brazilian Drug Dealer's Woman by Robert Gay, on loan from the public library. It's composed of interviews between Lucia and Robert Gay. She's forthcoming and knowledgeable about her lifestyle. The book is written "as accessible and readable as possible" ( Gay 11). A very sound choice because the criminal world feels alien to me.
ladykhalia
(6 months, 21 days ago)I'm reading Juliet Marillier : The Well of Shades (Bridei Trilogy) by Juliet Marillier. I didn't know if I would like this or not because while I liked book one in the series, I struggled to get through book two. Thankfully, I can't put this one down though.
Jennifer
(6 months, 24 days ago)I'm reading Owen Sheers' "Resistance", by recommendation from a fellow moocher :-) http://www.owensheers.co.uk/fiction.htm
Cymraes
(6 months, 25 days ago)Nuria Masot, "Il labirinto del serpente",(I'm reading the Italian translation) a very well written and historically accurate series where the main character is a knight templar spy/investigator. Highly recommended!!

(6 months, 29 days ago)Bitita's Diary: the Childhood Memoirs of Carolina Maria de Jesus. Very engrossing, although a small segment of Americans would be interested in this topic. The title is self-explanatory and it is nonfiction.Carolina Maria de Jesus, a black woman, lived in a favela of Sao Paulo, Brazil. She earned her keep by collecting garbage and raised three children, two boys and a girl. Her adult diaries were published in 1960 as Quarto de Despejo. ( In the English translation, it is called Child of the Dark.) She returned to obscurity after a brief flash with fame. In 1977, she died in the rural parts of Sao Paulo state.

(12 months, 27 days ago)I am reading My Name is Memory by Brashares. Intriguing story about reincarnation and love. I carrying the characters with me each day and while I want to know what happens I do not want the book to end.
Karen 
(1 year ago)It's already the beginning of Sept now! I've just finished Light Between Oceans (author?) and just before that the 3rd book in the Shadow in the Wind trilogy of Carlos Zafon (?). Sorry I'm doing this from memory as the books are returned and I'm not on my own PC right now. They were both wonderful reads. Enjoyed them immensely. I am a big fan of Carlos though.
RoseAnn
(1 year ago)I'm reading Euripides, and the Greek Tragics in general. It's partly because of my Master's thesis I'm studying for, partly because I love Ancient Greek literature. :-) Anyone else like that around ? If so, I'd be happy to link up here.
Courtiron
(1 year ago)Hey, well it's August 2013 and I'm new, I don't know how to start a new post. I'm reading The Cross by Scott. G. Mariani. It's pretty good so far. Alot of characters to jump to and from, but after the 100 page mark you feel in the loop!
jade
(1 year ago)Hi :) I'm reading 'The Queens Fool' by Phillipa Gregory - it's great so far ! A good summer read for me :)
Kate
(1 year ago)I am reading All The Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy.
Lavenderagate
(1 year ago)I'm reading "Blood Alone" by James R. Benn, it's "a Billy Boyle World War 2 Mystery". I just discovered yesterday that it's the third book in a series (and I haven't read the first two yet). It's a good story so now I'll have to get the others. Would recommend it to anyone who likes this type of book.
Carole
(1 year ago)I'm still reading Stephen King : Under the Dome: A Novel I'm over 600 pages into it, and it is FANTASTIC!!!!
Michelle 
"The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz"

I just got finished reading "The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz" by Denis Avey. It was one of those books that once you get into it, you have to keep reading. Interestingly, the time he spent in and around Auschwitz was only a small part of the book... What came before and after was just as interesting. My only grievance was that there was a lot of British and military slang; a glossary of terms would have been helpful. Often you had to guess from context what certain words meant.

I've been reading a very narrow genre for awhile now...

Been working my way through British naval fiction set during the napoleonic wars.

So far this year I've completed reading the following series:

The Hornblower Saga - C S Forester
http://bookmooch.com/m/s/c+s+forester

The Alan Lewrie series by Dewey Lambdin
http://bookmooch.com/m/s/dewey+lambdin

All the Ramage novels by Dudley Pope that I've been able to get my hands on.
http://bookmooch.com/m/s/dudley+pope

At the moment I am reading Colours Aloft by Alexander Kent the 16th in the Richard Bolitho Series.
http://bookmooch.com/m/s/alexander+kent

So that's basically what I've read this year with a few other things mixed in.

(3 years ago)Thanks Margaret, that nautical list was excellent.
Daniel
(3 years ago)I actually just got the last P O'brian novel in a swap today, so now that the series is complete it's on my to be read shelf. Actually it has so many books it IS my to be read shelf. :)
Daniel
(3 years ago)It's time you got acquainted with Patrick O'Brian. He's brilliant -- the Aubrey Maturin Series. All 20 or so of the novels are stand alone but I'd start with Captain & Commander or whatever the first one is.
erwin mcgee
(3 years ago)If you wish to drive yourself barking mad, try John's Nautical Fiction List, a vast bibliography of nautical series. It apparently hasn't been updated since 1999, but contains lots of old series that I'd never heard of. It's at: http://intersail.torresen.com/link_in_frame.php?link=607 There's also a good non-fiction list that's part of the same site.
Margaret H.
(3 years ago)N a M Rodger : Wooden World isn't one of the non-fiction that I've read so i'll definitely take a look at it. Your husband might enjoy Jack Tar - The extraordinary Lives of Ordinary Seamen in Nelson's Navy - Lesley Adkins : Jack Tar: Life in Nelson's Navy Thanks for the recommendation. Daniel
Daniel
(3 years ago)And my husband says you should read N a M Rodger : Wooden World which will give you a real feel for the Georgian Navy!
mfkirke
(3 years ago)And then Flashman? Although you must read Tom Brown's Schooldays first!
mfkirke
(3 years ago)Those are on my list, at the moment I am still in the process of collecting all the Sharpe books. I have about 10 of them so far and they are definitely on my "To Be Read" list.
Daniel
(3 years ago)Perhaps you should break out and read Sharpe?
mfkirke
Naked Lunch

Currently trying to get through "Naked Lunch" by William Burroughs...
And I don't know how I feel about it. Thoughts?

(3 years ago)The Beats were oh so au currant in the 70s and are now quite out of date. They do not age well. Kerouacs On the Road is absolutely no big deal today but was world shaking to teens in the fifties. Ginsberg just seems silly now, Howl away. I didn't always feel this way.
erwin mcgee
Just finished

Just finished Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah, very emotional story and the last 50 pages be sure to have a tissue handy--will get to your heart.

(3 years ago)Oh that was a good book! Kristin Hannah books are so absorbing, and I'm really surprised she hasn't gotten a movie deal out of her books. It seems like each one of them begs for the big screen.
kendra
(3 years ago)Just finished Rebecca Goldstein : 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction and I really enjoyed it. I may even convince my friend who does not read fiction to give it a try. Also finished Pet Noir by Patti Nagle, an early reviewer book I got from Librarything. It was a quick fun read. Starting Convergence by by Joseph Gellene (from LT as well) next and something else that I'll dig out of my TBR mountain.
Cara
Im currently reading...

I'm reading 'My Life As An Experiment: One Man's Humble Quest to Improve Himself' by A.J. Jacobs at the moment. Its absolutely amazing so far, and I'd highly recommend it, even though I'm only halfway through ;)
A.J. Jacobs is a great author and has written 3 #1 New York Times bestsellers so far. Ive read 'The Year Of Living Biblically' and it was great. Hes worth a read definetly.

couple of good ones

One Scream Away by Kate Brady--you know the victum, you know the murderer, now it's all about the chase and every page comes with a new secret revealed.

Gathering Lies by Meg O'Brien--this was a surprise but it's spellbinding and you won't want to put it down.
