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")

Fun, Kaida! I've been meaning to do that myself one day and even picked up a cheap copy at a used book sale a while back, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. :anxious:

I'm reading "Lady Undaunted," a novel by Tamara Leigh. Very interesting so far! I know my best friend will like it too, so I need to finish it so I can pass it on to her!

I finished Prague Counterpoint, excellent. Up next for me is The Cherished Quilt by Amy Clipston. It is the third book in her Amish Heirloom series.

I'm reading A Wrinkle in Time.

Hope to read "Born a Crime" by Trevor Noah as soon as I finish A Wrinkle in Time.

I sadly cannot read more than one book at a time now. It is sooo frustrating. I have like, eight books started, but can't seem to finish them -_-

I really need to read "A Wrinkle in Time" one of these days. :anxious: I know it's supposed to be so good, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I'm reading "With All My Heart," a collection of five novellas. The first one is by Karen Witemeyer, and I really love her books, so I'm enjoying it so far. The novella is connected to her novel "Full Steam Ahead," which is quite nice!

I finished The Cherished Quilt by Amy Clipston, it was excellent!! The problem for me now is that I have to wait until May of next year to read the fourth book. :( Up next for me is Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner. This one is a contemporary/historical which I really enjoy.

Oh Laurie, I feel your pain! It's hard to wait for a new book in a series that you're really enjoying! :mad:

I'm reading "Lady of Conquest" by Tamara Leigh, and it's quite enjoyable so far. I enjoy historical fiction, and this one is set way back in 1068, which is not a time period that I have read much about!

It is hard to wait but I just read too fast. I finished Secrets of a Charmed Life, very good. Up next for me is Not by Sight by Kate Breslin. First time reading this author so we shall see.

I hope the new author worked out!

I just read "Kidnapped at Christmas" by Maggie K. Black. It was quite good! It was an interesting mystery with characters that I connected to and thought were very well done, but on the shorter side (a bit over 200 pages), which is just what I wanted. I like to read longer, more detailed stories sometimes, but tonight I was looking for something shorter. This is the second book I've read by this author, and I would definitely read more! I might be a little biased, because I really like that her books (at least the two that I've read) take place in Canada. \:D/ Both have been in Ontario so far.

I started "Told You Twice" by Kristen Heitzmann yesterday. I really loved "Told You So," the first book in her Told You series, so I was really happy to get the second book! I need to read it soon, because I have a couple of friends waiting to read it! It's really good so far.

I'm reading through Peter Pan currently, it's been a while since I've read it, and I don't remember it being so strange. Yet it still as a charming story. :)

I finished The Reluctant Duchess, very good. Roseanna White is a new favorite of mine. Up next is Waves of Mercy by Lynn Austin, another favorite of mine.

WHOOP WHOOP. It's a very silly book. I love reading it. I read certain parts out loud because of how silly it is. =D You have to have a certain sense of humor to like this book.

I've been meaning to read through Peter Pan soon, and even bought a used copy at a used book sale a while ago. I guess this is my reminder to actually read it!

I read "The Captive Heart" by Michelle Griep today. It was a great read! Very interesting and a well-done historical novel that felt true to the time period while keeping things accessible. It takes place in South Carolina in 1770. i definitely recommend it!

I finished Waves of Mercy, excellent book. I must confess that I was a little disappointed with the ending but it's still a wonderful read. Up next is A Son's Vow by Shelley Shepard Gray. It is the first book in her Charmed Amish Life trilogy.

I just finished "Cold Shot" by Dani Pettrey. A coworker was looking for a book recommendation for something we could both read and talk about, so I suggested this one. It was quite good, though not quite awesome. I don't really like the third person "bad guy thoughts" style that she has, but other than that I enjoyed it, and the story was quite interesting.

I have a friend who really liked that one too, Kathy!

I started reading "The Inheritance" by Tamera Alexander. I've read it before, but not recently. I was looking for it a while ago at the library but it was always out, and I have lots of other books to read so I didn't bother to reserve it. I had almost forgotten about it when I was in the library and saw it sitting there on the shelf, just waiting for me! \:D/
