One of my cousin's wrote an historial fiction novel entitled "The Queen's Daughter". I don't normally read historical fiction but I had to read this. It was very interesting from the start. It is the story of Joan of England. Sister to King Richard, Prince John. The author is Susan Coventry. If anyone else reads it, let me know what you think.

I'm currently finishing short stories by Stephen King - "Night Shift". Then I have Tick Tock by James Patterson and Lisa Gardner's latests (I don't have the book in front of me and I can't remember the name!).

I am re-reading Lord of the Rings, though I couldn't really tell you why, haha.
Next on my list is the Stieg Larsson trilogy and then probably some historical non-fiction about Henry II.
He is a distant ancestor, so I always like to find new books about him!

Good thing you have all three of them - the second leaves you on a cliff hanger and you NEED the third one immediately!

Enjoy

Let me know how you like it. I love the Picoult books I've read so far and am trying to decide on the next one to read. I LOVED 19 Minutes!

Again, let me know how you like it. I have read maybe 2 or 3 of hers and really enjoy them. Can't decide on which to choose next.

I just started "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. I know it's been out a while, but I'm so behind on my reading! I just started, only 5 percent through it via my e-reader. LOVE IT so far. Very intense, and I'm not even that far into it to know what is going on for sure. My son said there is a movie of it. I might have to check that out when I get done. I didn't know that!

I really liked that book.....the relationship between the father and son is so touching. It's a book that will take you to many levels.....enjoy!

BTW didn't enjoy the movie as much as the book.

Oh, I am happy to hear that! I get so disappointed when a book starts out good then goes downhill after the first 50 pages or so. I LOVE the relationship they have set up between the father and son so far. Very touching!!!

You know, very rarely have I seen a movie, based on a book, that I thought was as good or better than the book. One exception to that for me would be "Boy in the Striped Pajamas." They were "different" but both were powerful and good I thought. What I get super irritated with is when they change something kind of "big" in the movie that seems to be pointless to have changed.

Joanne (Seattle): Wow! I hope your library has multiple copies, and that you will not have to wait very long for your book.

Joanne R: We read NIGHT SHIFT way back in HS English. To this day I cannot sleep at night unless the closet door is closed.

Finished THE GHOST AND THE DEAD DEB by Alice Kimberly. Good book. Now to decide between book three of that series, or MORTAR AND MURDER by Jennie Bentley. Decisions, decisions...

I just finished "The Marriage Bureau for Rich People". Can't remember the author. I got it in the bargain book bin at Big Lots, LOL! But it was good, really interesting.

Before that I read "Kabul Beauty School", a true story about a woman, a beautician, who goes to Kabul to help. I liked it because it told a lot about the way of life over there.

I just got the new "Cleopatra" and want to get started on it soon.

I'm currently reading Beading With Cabochons by Jamie Cloud Eakin (I'm a jewelry designer as well as a paper-crafter) during the day

and Songs Without Words by Ann Packer at night to wind down.

I have more beading publications (books and magazines) than I do novels but I tend to get most of my novels at our monthly Friends of the Library book sales (I only pay $1 per inch-they stack the books up and measure the thickness of the stack) It's a great way to get hardcover and paperback books very cheaply. One time I got over $200 worth of books (retail) for only $13. When I'm done with them I donate them back so someone else can buy them

Beaddict: Library book sales are GOOD!

Read MORTAR AND MURDER (book 4 of a series) by Jennie Bentley last week, then holed up against the pouring rain over the weekend and devoured MOCKINGJAY by Suzanne Collins. Quite an emotional end to the trilogy, but glad I finally got to this one.

Currently reading: THE GHOST AND THE DEAD MAN'S LIBRARY by Alice Kimberly, which is book three of the Haunted Bookshop series.

I think you'll like it. My issue is I am one of those that always has questions about the basic stuff, and this is one of those that finds success in NOT telling you basic details. You DON'T need them to "enjoy" the book, not by a long shot, but it's my nature to want to know all of that!!! You know stuff like ages, names, year, time frames, etc. Cool how a book can really work without it!

That's interesting! I'm not sure how that works either but you have gotten me intrigued! I think when I finish "Fall of Giants" I will read it next! I'll probably finish it tonight or tomorrow depending on the kiddos! (they secretly rule the world!LOL) Even though I usually like to ponder over bigger reads and read something very light in between.

We saw the movie, and felt it was pretty dark. I don't know if the book has the same tone, but at the end of that film both dh and I were emotionally drained.

I just started it. I was talking to my oldest about it and he asked me what it was about. Well, I really couldn't quit discribe it to him (I had just started it) Anyway, I looked at the summary and it says it is an allegory. Now it's going to bug me about what the meaning it!!

Has anyone googled it? I am going to when I'm done unless I get to curious and then I'm going sooner!

I really like Jack Reacher...the first book I read was "61 hours" then I read "Worth Dying For" and decided I wanted to read the whole series and so I started with the first book and just finished the second. I keep asking but you are the first person to mention reading this series. I need to get a copy of the third book from the library tomorrow.

I am reading True Blue by David Balduacci (sp?). It is a cop novel, not really liking it too much but I have not stopped reading it. Why? that is just the way I am i guess. Actually can't wait to finish to go on to something better.

I didn't Google it (The Road), but I have my own theories on it. I found it to be a true love story of a parent and child, which you could take to a spiritual level very easily. In fact, it is such a love story and how deep that love is, that I found the boy to be symbolic for carrying the light and love as the "Son" (and I can't say more without giving things away....) With all the darkness to the book, to me, love wins out, and that's what I loved about it.

Well, I haven't read them in order. I just read the books as I get them. Not sure if they really qualify as a series, but they are good. There are about 6 or 7 Reacher books by Child.

that's the great thing about this thread. I did not like these books at ALL. I could not even finish them. UGH!!! But there are ladies here on this thread that have raved about them, loved them and they recommend reading them. So there you go. You gotta go try it for yourself. Put your name on the wait list at the library, so if you don't like it then you can send it back no harm. If you love it, then you can track down the others for your bedside table.

Hey Jenn glad you like Jack Reacher too. Actually there are 15 books in the series. I asked my librarian for a list because I wanted to read them in order and he printed a list out for me. I agree that they don't have to be in order because each book stands alone but he does reference things that have happened in the past and I like knowing what he means.

So, I'm one of the many fans of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (sorry you didn't like them Jennik)...which got me interested in other Scandinavian mystery authors. I just finished a book I would highly recommend..apparently it won a prize as best Swedish mystery I think the year after Dragon Tattoo..it's called Three Seconds by Roslund and Hellstrom ( a pair of authors, one an ex-criminal the other an ex-journalist)..it's about an ex-con who goes undercover for the Stockholm police and is sent to prison to thwart a drug ring. I really liked it and found it hard to put down. Any one else read this?

I am currently reading The Girls from Ames: A Story of Women and a 40yr Friendship.
So far, I am enjoying it.

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Was a bit tough to start, all the connections and characters were very hard to keep track of. I even started writing them down, but read a review and it said not to worry about all the names they will become clear later on and it was true. I read the daunting 800+ pages quickly as I couldn't put the book down. I am looking forward to starting the next book in the trilogy THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE. I'll be back

I enjoyed all three of them very much. The only problem I had was trying to pronounce those Swedish names. So I just sort of glossed over them. But the story was very interesting. Makes you wonder what else goes on behind the scenes of business and government!

I thought there were awesome book... If you like these types of books I recommend Tess Gerritson's Rizzoli and Isles Series.... They are awesome too and James Patterson's Womens murder club books. They are easy to find its the ones that are 1st to die, 2nd Chance, 3rd degree etc. They are really good.

I'll keep this in mind. It has been sitting on my Kindle for months and I keep reading something else.
