What are your Reading ATM #16

Recommended Posts

This is a re-post from the last thread, I went to a lot of trouble to type that up only to have a new thread start :lol:

 

I have been reading a lot-probably more than I will list here but all I can remember.

 

There and back Again by Sean Astin. It was his story about the filming of the Lord of the Rings. It wasn't great which was disappointing.

The Secret Lives of Dresses by Eron McKean-this was a really lovely book. Quite emotional in parts.

Tensy Farlow and the home for Mislaid Children by Jen Storer-this was really good

This Way Up by Paige Nick

Meryl Streep Movie Club-pretty lame

Pennies for Hitler by Jackie French-wonderful

Wrapped Up in You by Carole Matthews-ok

One Day in May & A Rural Affair by Catherine Alliot

 

I have only recently discovered Catherine Alliot. If you like chick lit then check her out-she is very Marian Keyes-ish.

The Devil's Diadem by Sara Douglass

It's awesome!

 

I loved this too. I've really enjoyed nearly all her books but this is one of the best.

 

I've just finished the Hunger Games and now I'm reading the new Ken Follett - Winter of the World (or somesuch...). Its OK so far - I'm only a short way into it.

I'm getting a little peeved by the price of new release books on Kindle.

The Twelve is $21.22 ,dollars dearer than the hardcover.

I finally read Twilight (yes, very late to the party). I didn't mind it actually, was expecting it to be worse. Not quite understanding the obsession, but I enjoyed the story and the world Meyer created.

 

I also just finished A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay which I loved.

 

Currently reading more Jean Plaidy: The Sixth Wife of Henry the 8th.

Never ended up reading The Appointment, I had a few things on and didn't feel like I could fully concentrate, and it is a book I want to really take in. So it can wait.

 

Finished The Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue, which was pretty good, now half way through Dreamfever (4th book in the Fever series) by Karen Marie Moning.

I am reading "The Casual Vacancy" by J.K. Rowling. Only about 50 pages in but it is interesting so far. Completely different to Harry Potter (which I guess it needs to be)

I just finished The Yellow Birds, by Kevin Powers which I thought I would love but I was only really 'meh' about. I feel a bit depressed after it so I think I need something cheerful for my next read.

My daughter just bought me "The Twelve" by Justin Cronin for my birthday. I couldn't resist starting, even though I have a library book that should be finished first.

Oh I am so excited to read The Twelve! I got a message from a friend today saying they have it in Target in the cover and size I want (I am a bit fussy about books, if it's a series they have to match) so I might head down tomorrow.

I'm reading The Fine Colour of Rust by PA O'Reilly, but I'm not really loving it. I've got a few waiting to be read that I think will be better......Winter of the World by Ken Follett, The House of Memories by Monica McInerney, The Mercy Sisters by Carolne Overington......all authors I've read and loved before.

Might give Rusty the flick.

I am reading the 6th novel in the Outlander series " A breath of snow and Ashes" by Diana Gabaldon

 

I can not put these books down! Very much like the Bronze Horseman novels.

The Jean Plaidy I just finished was disappointingly boring.

 

Then read Philippa Gregory's The Virgin's Lover which I enjoyed but not sure if it was quite historically accurate. Fun read anyway.

 

Currently reading Mary Balogh's The Secret Mistress, which sounds racier than it is. More Georgette Heyerish than anything. Very sweet and I'm enjoying it a lot.

"I know How The Heather Looks" - An American family travel to Britain to track down places mentioned in their favourite children's stories (A.A. Milne, Arthur Ransome, Kenneth Graeme). Sounds a bit odd but I often read it in between more brain-taxing stuff as it is a lovely, gentle read.
