Hey guys, summer is almost over. Time to get ready for fall, hot chocolate and curling up with a good book!

If you like quirky, well written characters and a good British mystery, I highly recommend reading the Zailer/Waterhouse series by Sophie Hannah. I read every one I could get my hands on at the library. Really entertaining and compelling.

If you like older books (plus ones that make you laugh!) I definitely recommend Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens... It's a bit hard to get into at first but once you do you might not want to put it down- I know I didn't!

I'm working my way through Louise Penny's Three Pines/Inspector Gamache mysteries -- on #6 (Bury Your Dead). And I'm enjoying them immensely!

Default The Girl on the Train

Just downloaded The Girl on the Train to my nook. Just finished some James Patterson and I'm now caught up on Vince Flynns books about Mitch Rapp. Waiting for Kyle Mills to pick up where Vince left off.

I heard that was an excellent book. You will have to let us know your thoughts.

I purchased the book Go Set A Watchman but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I have been taking college courses so it kind of absorbs all my reading time for now. I do plan to crack this book open soon though.

I'm enjoying "The Martian", wanted to read it before seeing the movie. Because of the cover I can really see why Matt Damon was selected to play the lead. Love the details and the humor.

While waiting somewhat impatiently for the next installment (The Winds of Winter) of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, I found a new book by Martin called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, which takes place about 100 years before Game of Thrones. I just started it, but I am definitely enjoying it so far.

Just finished The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain. It was a bit too formulaic for me. I wonder if anyone has read any of her other books, and if so, what are your opinions of those?

Finished City of Women by David R. Gillham. Takes place in Berlin during WWII. Really gives you a feel of what Berliners went through.

I just finished "Missing, Presumed" by Susie Steiner. It is a wonderful British mystery, like the ones written by Ruth Rendell and Elizabeth George. Great leading character, intriguing plot and a good ending. It's the author's first book, and I can't wait for more!

I finished The Book Thief several weeks ago. Really enjoyed it but it took me awhile to get into the narration by the "reaper". Last night I finished The Nazi Officer's Wife. Of all the WWII books I have read, this one might be the most descriptive of what it was like in Germany, let alone what it was like for a Jew hiding in plain sight.

You know the scary thing for me reading these books is that I see parallels between the Nazi propaganda and some things that have happened recently or are ongoing in the US. The Nazis told their lies long enough and loud enough and people believed them.

I'm looking forward to getting Jodi Picoult's latest book, when it comes out in paperback. No way am I spending $35+ on a book.

Just read Death on the Prairie by Kathleen Ernst. A Chloe Ellefson Mystery. Great for Laura Ingalls Wilder fans. Lots of fun details about her as well as history in general.

I have been in several book clubs over the years. I enjoy it tremendously.
It's great to be with other book lovers to discuss things. I like a book club that has a few rules, like no more than one book by the same author each year and no more than 500 pages . We actually meet in the cafe at the local Barnes and Noble. Food is available and no one has to clean their house!

This question makes me curious about other people's book club likes and dislikes.

I have loved books forever, however I just read my first one in years! I just can't seem to sit long enough to read, but I love Mitch Albom so I read The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto.
