Spent the weekend reading one of the best books I've read this year: Summer in the South by Cathy Holton. I won a copy of this book from a book blog I frequent. I was intrigued not only by the novel's description (click on link above), but also the fact that the author was inspired to write it after visiting a cemetery. I have long loved visiting old cemeteries and often thought them rich in untold stories. I was not disappointed in this book, and found it a fast and engaging novel--which would account for reading it in about a day and a half. Excellent summer read!

Up next: First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost (book one in her Night Huntress World series, a spin-off of the Night Huntress series).

I have discovered an author by the name of Jane Green. I read "Promises To Keep" and really liked it. I'm reading another one of hers right now, but can't recall the title, lol. I am going to go to the library later on and see what else of hers I can find. It's not often that I find fiction authors that I like.

I am currently reading Love Will Find A way by Barbara Freeth It was one of those 3.00 deals for Nook. Before that was the latest In the Undead series by MaryJanice Davidson. She has strayed from the Betsy and Sinclair I really enjoy so I hope she gets back on track with the next one.

My list for August is:
Desired by Morgan Rice
Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Dracula in Love by Karen Essex (I bought this never read book at a used book store months ago. So maybe I will finally read it.)

Happy Reading

Still reading Death's Excellent Vacation and am also half way through Dracula by Bram Stoker. Enjoying the latter a bit more than the former. Hope to finish Dracula before the weekend, so I can devote it to Dracula in Love by Karen Essex.

Currently reading Club Dead by Charlaine Harris.

Looking forward to Bloodlines by Richelle Mead in a few weeks.

Patiently trying to wait until the end of the year for Destined (a House of Night P.C. Cast novel), next year for City of Lost Souls...and the 4th book in the Celestra Series by Addison Moore.

Hoping there will be a 5th Amanda Hocking novel in the My Blood Approves series.

After going through a deep personal loss 2 years ago, I found myself unable to read (and I had always been an avid reader.) But a friend, who is also a therapist, told me this was perfectly understandable and was one of the facets of grief. So I filled my time with other things (namely, cardmaking) and knew I'd be able to read again when I was ready.

I was ready 2 weeks ago, thanks to a dear, dear friend who is a fellow SCSer. I picked up "The Help" which has been on my nightstand for many months, and finished it in 3 days. Wow, what a way to start back! Absolutely loved that book. Next, I started the Stieg Larsson trilogy, and finished the 3rd book this past Sunday. These I couldn't put down and I knew I had gained back a part of my life that I had missed so much.

Last week, I received "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" and finished it this afternoon.

I just want to thank God for helping me get through this part of my life.

So what's next on this list? I haven't a clue.

Suggestions, anyone?

Thank you, Joanne.

Has anyone read anything by Judith Merkle Riley? I read "A Vision of Light" after picking it up (hardback) in a used bookstore for 50 cents; it didn't have the dustcover, so I had no idea what it was about. It turned out to be one of my all-time favorite books.

Much later, I found out that "Vision of Light" was the first book of a trilogy, the 2nd being "In Pursuit of the Green Lion", the 3rd being "The Water Devil". I have the series, but haven't read the last 2 volumes yet. Fans of historical fiction should love these books!

When I asked above, what's next, I should have pulled out the second book. Instead I'm currently reading "The Other Boleyn Girl".

Welcome back, Linda!! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. This is the place for some suggestions. I have tried to read quite a few of the books that have been recommended here. I loved the books that you just mentioned, with the exception of the Stieg Larson books. In addition to The Help, I also liked The Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Those were my 2 fav books from last year.

Haven't picked a fav for this year; but I have just finished the lastest Dick Francis book, Gamble, written but not finished before he passed away.Completed by his son. Good book. Set in a horse racing theme. I am also reading the lastest Johanna Lindsey, historical romance. Chasing Fire, by Nora Roberts was a good read, too.

I love this series of books... I have the newest one on hold at the library... cant wait for it to come out... I did read that Charlaine Harris is thinking about ending this series in the next couple of books but they are sooo funny sometimes.... Let me know if you like it.

I know what you mean. I too went through a number of successive losses over the past few years, one after another, and have found it a challenge not only to get back into my reading, but my love for cardmaking as well. My passion for those things just hasn't been the same since. It's slowly coming back, but I'm easily distracted, and where I could create and make a number of items, I now struggle to complete one over a period of days! My "mojo" is in a rut!

I know it will come back, my laughter has, it's just that my motivation isn't the same yet...... and I want it to be. Good luck to you, my heart goes out to you....

Oh, in addition to the books you mentioned, one that I read a couple of years ago that I really enjoyed on a number of levels was "The Road". It's a dark story, yet has a very spiritual level to it as well. It's about a parent/child relationship, and very touching. I happened to have lost a child, so I found the story very moving as I read about the father and son in this book. It's quite beautiful and won the Pulitzer Prize....

You could read "The Hunger Games" it is young adult, but a great read and many adults love it. Another suggestion is "Unbroken", a nonfiction story about a WW2 POW. Very moving. If you are a Tina Fey fan, her new book called "Bossypants" has some hilarious parts. A lot about SNL. I will keep thinking if you need more suggestions. Congratulations on getting through your grief and back to reading

I just finished The Lincoln Lawyer for my book club (rented the movie too!) and now I am reading Little Women and will get in a James Patterson book before my next book club book. With free classics on the Kindle, I am reading or re-reading some of the classics and loving it!

I read a couple of books on vacation from some favorite authors, Double Tap by Steve Martini,another engrossing book featuring attorney Paul Madrini..and The President's Assassin by Brian Haig and his character, smart mouthed military attorney Sean Drummond...both really satisfying reads. I just started Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, a true story of a WWII Vet and his amazing survival on the Pacific Ocean..I've only read a bit of that but I can tell it's going to be good..anybody read this one? It's on the non ficton best seller list now.

I just started Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult. It comes with a CD of songs for each chapter which sounded like a great idea until I actually heard them. The book seems okay so far.

I have tried to read a few other Jane Green books, but the majority of her previous work is basically chick lit. Not my thing. Of course, some people seem to love that whole genre. I find it a little too light and fluffy. No substance.

Barbara Delinsky has a new one out that looks good. But it's a hardback edition right now. No way I'm paying money for that. I'll wait for the paperback!

I am LOVING the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. I'm on book #5 right now. I am so in love with Jamie. They don't make them like that anymore!

Another favorite author of mine is Wilbur Smith. I have always had in interest in Africa and he tells wonderful tales with abit of history mixed in.

I had to bag Sing You Home. I read 110 pages and just could not get into it even though it had great reviews and recommendations.
I just picked up Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens and Moonwalking with Einstein.

The "Outlander" series is my all time favorite. Like you I am in love with Jamie...what a hero!!!
Just finished "Summer in the South" I really liked it and will try to get the other books Cathy Holton has written.

don't feel too bad, I have tried on three diferent occassions to read The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. some books are just like that. I am with you, if a book hasn't grabbed me by page 100, it's toast.

I got the "Sing You Home" book on CD and didn't get through the first CD...don't know if the story was any good or not.

Just started "Smokin Seventeen."

Game of Thrones series, from the HBO series.
If you love dogs, read "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein. It's fantastic!
