What books are you reading?

In the same vein as movie/music threads...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

Laurie, I think you'll really enjoy "More Than Meets the Eye" - move it up on your book pile! :yes:

My brother really enjoyed that series, but I still haven't read it. I hope you enjoy it, Monty!

I am about to start "The Captured Bride" by Michelle Griep. I always enjoy her books, so I'm really looking forward to it! :D

Thank you Catspaw, I will!! I just finished A Name Unknown, excellent book. Up next for me is The Eleventh Hour by Michael Phillips. It is the first book in his Secret of the Rose series. This series was first published in the 90s but can be found online.

I finished The Eleventh Hour, very good book. There were a few characters that I did not like but the book is set during World War II and it is hard for me to finish a book when there are characters I don't like. Up next for me is The Captain's Daughter by Jennifer Delamere. First time reading this author.

I'm reading "Long Time Gone" by Mary Conneally. Her books are always good for a few laughs and lots of western action and fun!

I've never read those, Horsegirl, but I've heard they're good!

I'm starting "Too Far Down" by Mary Conneally, the third book in her Cimarron Legacy series. It picks up not too long after the second book ends, and I'm excited to get to the bottom of the mystery that's continued throughout the series!

I'm starting "At Your Request" by Jen Turano. It's the novella that starts her Apart From the Crowd series. Her books are always fun, so I'm looking forward to the whole series! I have them stacked up on my shelf in order just waiting for me. :D

I am about halfway through Heart of the Lonely Exile by B. J. Hoff, second book in her Emerald Ballad series. I started reading this series after reading Harp on the Willow thinking that Harp on the Willow was the first book in a new trilogy. Found out yesterday from Goodreads that the second book in this new series has been cancelled by the publisher and the next book is not being released until 2019. I'm going to continue reading the Emerald Ballad series as I am enjoying it.

I am reading "Love Defined" by Kristen Clark & Bethany Baird. Great book for teenage/young adult girls. :)

I finished Heart of the Lonely Exile last night, very good. Even though I am unhappy about the second book in the new series being cancelled, I'm still enjoying the Emerald Ballad series. I have started A Song Unheard by Roseanna M. White. It is the second book in her Shadows over England trilogy. The third book releases on 9/4. Very good so far.

I started "Out of the Ordinary" by Jen Turano today. The first book in her "Apart from the Crowd" series was really good, so I'm looking forward to the rest of this second book!

I finished A Song Unheard, excellent book. I cannot wait until the final book releases!! 9/4/18 seems like a very long time to wait although I know it really isn't. Up next for me is Phoebe's Light by Suzanne Woods Fisher. It is the first book in her Nantucket Legacy trilogy.

Waiting for a much-anticipated next book in a series, especially when it's the last in the series, always feels like it takes forever! I feel your pain, Laurie.

I read "The Raveling" by Tamara Leigh today. It was super good, and I love reading great books all in one day, so I had a good day! It's the eighth (and final, at least for now) book in her Age of Faith series, and I think it was my favourite in the series. Now I need to get it to my best friend, who currently has the first seven books in the series that she borrowed from me and will want this one soon!

I'm currently reading "Children of Dune" by Frank Herbert. It's the third book in his Dune series. I'm really liking this series. :D

I've heard of those books but they looked a little odd to me. To be fair, I didn't look closely and they didn't look like my typical genres. I'm glad you're enjoying them!

I just started "Caught by Surprise" by Jen Turano. The book starts with the main character being kidnapped, so that's a fun way to dive right into a book!
