The Outlander series is one of my all-time favorites. Makes me glad I wasn't alive in the colonial days!

Playing catch-up...

Michelle: I hope you are enjoying the Sookie Stackhouse series. A friend is currently reading the most recent book, and I canít wait to get my hands on it!

Linda: Glad to hear you found your back to reading. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is one of my favorite books.

Patricia E: So glad you enjoyed Summer in the South!

Jeanne: I have also heard there will only be a couple more books in the Sookie series. MaryJanice Davidson is also nearing the end of her Undead vampire series with Queen Betsy, too. Have you read those? The series begins with Undead and Unwed.

Stampinchampin: My sister recently brought me The Lincoln Lawyer, but have not yet gotten to it. I am slowly trying to work my way through the stack of books on loan from both her and a friend. So far the friendís stack is dwindling much faster than the sisterís, LOL.

Wright1: Glad you are finding some great reads based on suggestions posted here!

Shari: I loved the first three Outlander books, but have fallen behind on them. Really need to try and catch upówith that series and so many others, LOL.

Still working on the anthology of short stories, Deathís Excellent Vacation. Am about halfway through. and have enjoyed some stories much more than others.

I did finish Dracula by Bram Stoker last week, and am glad I took the time to read it before immersing myself in Dracula in Love by Karen Essex. DIL is told from Dracula heroine Mina Murray Harker's point of view, and it's nice being able to compare Mina's version of events with those of the original novel.

I finished "Smokin Seventeen" and it was good. I'm glad they are fast reads though because she is dragging out the Morrelli or Ranger thing and she needs to make a decision soon. Still made me laugh!!!
I am about halfway through "The Soldier's Wife." Excellent book about a woman during WW2 living on an island off Normandy with her two daughters and elderly mother in law. This island sounds beautiful...I would love to go there. The story gets pretty intense and its very hard to put it down. It is written by Margaret Leroy.

Linda, thank you for sharing your problem reading after a loss. I had this happen to me when my dad died and it took me a long time to be able to enjoy reading again. Sometimes I could only read a few paragraphs at a time.

I recently discovered Lee Child mysteries (Jack Reacher series), and I love them! I just finished "Worth Dying For" and am now reading "61 Hours". His books are like a slightly milder version of watching "24".

I also enjoy David Baldacci and Michael Connelly.

I am reading The Help right now. I saw the movie a week ago and thought it was FANTASTIC. Usually I read the book THEN see the movie, but I broke my own rule this time. I am enjoying it so far!!

Jeanne: Wow! You're really getting into Chiaverini's quilt series. Good books, I take it?

Decided to keep with my romance streak through the long holiday weekend, so am reading an older anthology right now, Midnight Fantasies by Vicki Lewis Thompson, Stephanie Bond and Kimberly Raye.

I laugh then I cry and then i laugh till i cry and cry till I laugh... lol Let me know if the Vicki Thompson book your reading is any good...

Has anyone here read A Game of Thrones?? It's a series of five books and HBO has a series running. I just heard about it this morning so not sure who writes them.

PatricaE: Have not read GAME OF THRONES myself, but have seen it mentioned quite a bit at GoodReads. Seems to be quite popular.

Jeanne: Finished MIDNIGHT FANTASIES by Vicki Lewis Thompson and friends. Liked the first two stories (VLT and Stephanie Bond) more than the last (Kimberly Raye), but they were all good. Followed it up with another older book by VLT that has recently been rereleased, NOTORIOUS. It was packaged as a freebie with her most recent release, COWBOYS LIKE US. Fun, sexy and sassy! I actually have an autographed copy of the original release, so am a little embarassed it took me so long to read it. Stuff has a habit of getting lost in the TBR pile, especially when you come back from a conference with about thirty new books, LOL.

Have taken a complete 180 from romance and am now reading a thriller by Ted Dekker, THE BRIDE COLLECTOR. A little creepy when the POV is from that of the serial killer, but so far it's pretty good. Just about halfway through now. Did not get much read last night as I was distracted by the football game -- and it was a really good game (and I'm not just saying that because our team won, lol). No plans for the weekend except to read, read, read.

Jeanne: I was up until 4am reading THE BRIDE COLLECTOR -- finally had to force myself to put it down and get a few hours of sleep. I finished it early this afternoon, and it was really good. Is the one you have THE BONEMAN'S DAUGHTERS? That is the only book by him I see listed at GoodReads with "bone" in the title. Both of these books are stand alones, not even any related characters that I can see, though he does have a few series.

Haven't read a cozy mystery in a while, so think it's time to pick up one or two of those, starting with DEATH BY DIAMONDS by Annette Blair (Vintage Magic #3) and FOOL'S PUZZLE (Benni Harper #1) by Earlene Fowler. The latter appears to be a quilting mystery.

Ah, she's seguing from quilts to paranormal romance, LOL. Don't care for LKH or Sherrilyn Kenyon myself, but have DEAD RECKONING coming on loan from a friend.

Read DEATH BY DIAMONDS yesterday (yes, in one day--what can I say, it was a good mystery!), and started another by the same author, THE KITCHEN WITCH.

Well got my copy of Game of Thrones today from the library. It's quite a commitment and I really don't read a lot of science fiction. A friend told me it was fantasy more than science fiction so I will give it a try. The size of it reminds me of my all time favorite "Outlander".

Patricia: Wow, that is a hefty tome, isn't it? I do hope you like it!

I've been reading the "Accidental Witch" trilogy by Annette Blair. Finished the first two books, The Kitchen Witch and My Favorite Witch, and am now starting The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe. These are sexy romances that are laugh-out-loud funny.

I'm still reading Game of Thrones...had a couple of things to finish first because they were due at the library. Game of Thrones has so many characters thats it has taken me a bit to get into it. I got the book on CD and that has really helped...so far very good and I would recommend it to people like me that aren't really into science fiction. A good read!!

Widow...the book was wonderful but the movie is just as good. Sissy Spacik (spell) plays Hilly's mother and the part was made for her. She wears those cat eye glasses so popular then and I thought she stole the show. Of course lots of pro's in the movie...hope you get to see it soon.

I'm reading Please Look After Mom by Kyung-sook Shin.

It's the first library book I am reading on my kindle. I need to actually read more and spend less time online.

Finished ABBY COOPER, PSYCHIC EYE by Victoria Laurie (mystery, book one of a series) and loved it. Some real laugh-out-loud scenes in it. Have now started a book from another of Laurie's series, WHAT'S A GHOUL TO DO? and am not yet sure what I think of this one.

Jeanne: Are you on GoodReads? I just saw a new book by Chiaverini listed in the giveaway section and of course I thought of you. It's The Wedding Quilt: An Elm Creek Quilts Novel (book 1. This is for an advance copy of the book out Nov 1, giveaway open until Oct 13. You can enter the contest direct from the link I just posted if interested.

I just finished James Patterson series of Alex Cross books. Good at the first and then it seemed repeatitive at the end ones.

I started Firefly by P T Deutermann last night, never read anything of his, but I LOVE Vince Flynn stuff so I'm hoping it's a "page turner" as it says it is. I'm tired of reading the "boring" stuff.

Fall is coming, enjoy your day!!

I have thought this very same thing. Kinda quit reading them for that very reason.

HAd to giggle over your screen name. Duck and goose opens here in 2 weeks. DH just got back from a week in Canada for geese, so I feel your pain.

I agree! And as you said, there are lots of characters. I read the entire series this summer, each book around 1,000 pages. Needless to say, not much else got done. I think the author could have streamlined the story a lot and not lost anything in the telling. I hope it doesn't take another 5 or 6 years for the next one to come out - I will have forgotten it all!

Not sure where I saw it recommended, but just finished "Before I Go to Sleep" by S. J. Watson. Everyone always talks about page turners, but this surely was for me. It is fantastic. I had so much I wanted to do with the weather being nice for a stretch, but once I began, I couldn't stop. Highly recommend. It is an amnesia thriller you won't soon forget and the author's debut novel.

Am reading Invincible- The Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon... Its a teen series about Nick Gautier who is a character in her Dark Hunter Series... It tells Nicks story from the age of 14 and is very very good.

Next to read is 10th Anniversary by James Patterson.

I also enjoyed The Forgotten Garden. It reminded me of all those Daphne DuMaurier, Nora Lofts, and Mary Stewart novels I was a fan of decades ago. There have been a couple of novels by Morton since then, but I haven't read or heard much about them.
