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")

I finished The Wonder of You, very good. I am now reading On This Foundation by Lynn Austin. It is the final book of her Restoration Trilogy, excellent so far.

I'm reading more Tamera Alexander books! I stayed up late a couple of nights ago to finish "To Win Her Favor," since it was almost due at the library, and it was excellent. Now I'm back to some of her older ones that I've read before but want to enjoy again. I just started "Within My Heart." It's funny because at the end of "To Win Her Favor" the author's note mentions that a character from this book made an appearance but didn't say which one, and I was trying to think who it could be. I couldn't remember exactly what happened in this book, but I knew that I would have remembered if it was one of the main characters. Then I was a few lines into the prologue of "Within My Heart" and was like, "Oh yeah, this is totally the minor character who also was in the one I just read!" :lol: Here I thought I would be trying to figure it out the whole way through, and it was the very first thing!

I finished On This Foundation by Lynn Austin, excellent book and excellent trilogy. I'm sad to see that trilogy end. Ms. Austin is one of my favorite authors. Up next for me is Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin. It is the second book in her Waves of Freedom trilogy.

I'm just starting "Rekindled" by Tamera Alexander. Big surprise in my choice of author, right? ;) I've read it before but not for several years, so I'm looking forward to reading it again!

I just finished Anchor in the Storm, excellent book. I have to wait now until next year for the third book to release. Up next for me is An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter. I'm also re reading the entire Baxter family saga by Karen Kingsbury because yesterday a Christmas novella entitled A Baxter Family Christmas went on sale and I have been wanting it since I discovered it online. I bought my copy at Lifeway. I want to re read the all of the series because I want to refresh my memory and it's been a while since I read the earlier series. Plus, it will make the novella easier to read with the whole story fresh in my mind.

Finished reading Coraline yesterday. I had seen the movie and wondered how different the book was. They were pretty close to being the same. I enjoyed both.

I'm still in the process of reading The Maze Runner, which reminds me of Lord of The Flies... :? It's a good read.

And also, Owari No Seraph, which was recommend by Blitz. It's my first magna.

Ugh. I still have to remember to read that one, it sounds beautiful. :)

Update, I finished the first book in the Maze Runner series, working on The Scorch Trials. It's interesting really, different than I'm used to. I mean, I have read The Hunger Games, where similar events occur. The characters seem more relatable though...

The first time I read "Pride and Prejudice" (many years ago) I found it hard to follow, but seeing the movie (in my case, the 5-hour version) really helped because you get an idea of the plot and characters and tone for some lines, and then when I read the book again I loved it! I've read it at least half a dozen times, if not more, over the years. I hope that the same works for you and that you enjoy Jane Austen's literary genius. :D

I'm reading "Reading in the Wild" by Donalyn Miller. It's about reading and the good habits and traits that lifelong readers share. Very interesting!

I just finished A Elegant Facade, very good. This book had a twist in it that I've never encountered before. I've also read A Season of Angels which is the 13th book in the late Thomas Kinkade's Cape Light series, also very good. I love that series. Up next for me is Vienna Prelude by Bodie Thoene. This is the first book in her Zion Covenant series. I read it once years ago but never got around to reading the entire series.

I finished Vienna Prelude, very good and very sad given the time period in which it is set. Up next for me is the second book Prague Counterpoint. I'm also reading Sheperds Abiding by Jan Karon.
