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 Jerusalem's Queen, excellent book. I highly recommend Angela Hunt. Up next for me is The Bride of Ivy Green by Julie Klassen. It is the third and sadly final book in her Tales From Ivy Hill trilogy.

I'm starting "The Holiday Courtship" by Winnie Griggs. I really enjoy her books and recently realized that I have a few of her books sitting around unread, so I'm going to remedy that situation!

Julie Klassen is such a consistently great author!

I just started "Texas Cinderella" by Winnie Griggs. It's good so far.

I finished When Silence Sings, wonderful book. I've added Ms. Thomas to my very, very long list of favorites. Up next for me is One Final Breath by Lynn H. Blackburn. It is the third book in her Dive Team Investigations trilogy.

I'll have to look for that author, Laurie! You have great taste in books and I've never read anything by her.

I'm starting "A Tailor-Made Husband" by Winnie Griggs. Maybe not an award-winning book title, but her books are always good!

I started reading "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" today. I have never read a Harry Potter book before. A few months ago I saw the movies for the first time ever and decided to give the books a try. The first one is quite good so far. I can see why they're so popular!

I've heard Denise Hunter is good but haven't read her books myself either.

I'm starting "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" by J.K. Rowling. I really enjoyed the first book. I know I'm two decades late the party, but I'm enjoying having finally arrived. ;)

I just finished "Nameless" by Tamara Leigh. It's her newest book, and, like all the rest, very interesting and well-done historical fiction. Now I have to wait until spring for the next in the series! :mad:

Last night I finished Called to Protect by Lynette Eason. Excellent book. Second book in her Blue Justice trilogy. I started Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano. This is the second book in her Saturday Night Supper Club trilogy.

Currently reading Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey. It is the fourth and final book in her Chesapeake Valor series. Very good so far.

I'm starting "The Bridge to Belle Island" by Julie Klassen. It's brand new and I just picked it up at my local Christian bokstore today. I usually have to wait a little longer for them to get new releases in, but I dropped by just in case they had it already, and they did! Score! \:D/
