Something Terry Pratchett, but I've read so many lately that I don't remember which...darn.
I'm currently reading "Leadership and Self-Deception" and "Captivating" and hope to start "Ender's Game" on tape (I drive a lot to and from work). I'm really excited, all good books!
What are YOU reading?
Bastard thing! It ate my entry, and my youtube! Rewriting!
last book: into the wild - john krakauer.
currently reading: the thinking woman's guide to a better birth - henci goer.
now reading The Wheel of Time #2
: The Great Hunt, after finishing The Eye of the World
Good stuff? Would I like?
Ha! Well, I'm re-reading The Keys to the Kingdom series so... :3
I just finished book III, Drowed Wednesday, and I'm currently reading book IV, Sir Thursday.
The series is by Garth Nix
Good stuff? Is it terrible I haven't heard of any of these? lol
The last book I read was, shamefully, The Devil Wears Prada...hehehe.
Currently I'm reading Wicked :)
Ooh, I happen to enjoy both of those very much. :)
I finished reading "Captain Wentworth's Diary" which is another version of Jane Austen's novel Persuasion.
Currently reading "Mirror Mirror" by the same guy that wrote "Wicked"
Ooh, interesting. Was it well written? There's a lot of Jane Austen interpretations out there.
And I haven't read Mirror, Mirror yet, but I have it. That's the Borgia one, right? I really liked Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister too, and Wicked, o course.
Last Book Read: "Seducing the Boys Club" (about being a woman in a man's business world)
Reading: "The Female Brain"
I've been on a weird non-fiction kick lately. The last fiction I read was a couple months ago: "Mirror Mirror" by Gregory Maguire. :)
Oh wow, just like the poster above you! That's the one about the Borgia's yes? I have it somewhere. Need to read it one of these days.
The last one I read was 'Small Favors' by Jim Butcher.
I've started 'The Mirror of Her Dreams' by Stephen R Donaldson but it's going slow. I'm not sure if I'm going to dig it yet or not.
Did you like the first one you listed? And I hae when I can't get into a book right away. It's rough.
my, we are a well read bunch arn't we?
lessee...currently reading...the Stoner McTavish Series, i'm on book 3. re-read Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett, cause its my favorite book ever...oh and i read Silence of the Lambs, for the first time and it was excellent.
"Silence of the Lambs" WAS great!
"Hannibal" and "Red Dragon" are... FAR less entertaining...
Ill warn you. They are good enough.. but not nearly as fantastic as 'Silence'... "Red Dragon" is so obviously a freshman novel... its blocky, chunky and totally lacking in any physical description of people, more concentrated on the crimes and thats about it. Annoyed the hell out of me. Hehe
the last book i read was Pretty Little Mistakes.... i can't remember who it's by currently. it's amazing. it's a choose-your-own-adventure type book for adults!
the current book i'm reading is "My Friend Leonard" by James Frey [he wrote A Million Little Pieces]. it's great so far =]
LOL Choose Your Own Adventure?! Dude, that brings me back. I'm definitely checking it out.
And ugh. James Frey. I don't want to read anything he writes because he's a liar. I don't like that. :( Glad to hear it's a good book though, what did he pretend to be this time? A black lawyer from Bangladesh?
Previously: Terry Pratchett's Carpe Jugulum.
Currently: Nothing right now. I'm probably going to start either The Subtle Knife or The Myst Reader, though.
What's The Myst Reader about? I need to read some Pratchett. Everyone I know really likes his stuff.
Pretty Little Dirty by Amanda Boyden
Going to start Atonement tonight
Ooh, how was the previous? Sounds interesting. I've heard great things about Atonement.
I just finished Evernight by Claudia Grey. It is fantastic YA vampire lit that I seriously needed after slogging through Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.
I am currently re-reading Tithe by Holly Black because I just got my hands on Ironside, which is the third in the series, and I totally needed to refresh my memory of of the books. I'm also reading The Dark Knight script x]
Cool. :) Besides The Dark Knight and Twilight I haven't heard of any of those. lol. I'm adding books to my check out list though.
I am in the middle of Black Dogs by Ursula Vernon, which is really good. I love the characters.
Cool. :) I'll add it to my list.
Damn! You added pictures! That's hardcore. And Kushiel's Dart is definitely slow geting into, but it's so worth it. :) I think you'd like it.
How old is your son, if you dont mind answering?
havent heard of Kushiels Mercy. What genre is it?
Im going to starte Voices by Ursala K LeGuinn.
I don't ever give out his age because then people could trace my real life to this journal and that's no good. lol. But he's a toddler. ;)
And Kushiel's Mercy is the last in a fantasy series. It's what I call epic smut. Very good, but naughty as hell. ;)
An extremely well written trashy romance novel. ;)
What's Voices about?
I read the Man in the High Castle most recently, not reading anything right now.
You know what though? You should go to my journal. It's Caption Contest time! And it's a good one. :)
Oh damn! I'll get over there for sure in the next couple of days. I'd do it now but I'm behind on emails in four email accounts, and only checking right now between cooking dinner. lol
The last books I read (because I never read one at a time!) were "Before Victoria" about the time immediately preceding the Victorian era (the 1780's to 1830's). I belong to the North American chapter or the Jane Austen society and I found this book in an old book store. It's of especial interest to me and to our group because it is the era that Jane lived, it colours all of Jane's writing and puts her writings in context. It was actually very interesting (to me, anyway). I also read "Bones to Ashes" by Kathy Reiches - one of her better efforts, I thought (and I absolutely LOVE the series based on her!). I'm currently reading "Audition", the Barbara Walters autobiography. She's really had an amazing life and an amazing career. I think it's forgotten sometimes what a real trailblazer she was for the female reporters and more particularly, female anchors, of today.
last book i read was eclipse by stephenie meyer. i am currently reading breaking dawn by stephenie meyer and listening in my car to the host by stephenie meyer.
i've been working my way thru the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman - i just finished book four and I'm waiting for book five to arrive at the library.
Last read "The Forgetting of Wisdom" by Paul McDermott- one I've read many times and I'm also currently re-reading another old favourite "Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco.
I'll add them to my list. :)
Last thing I read was 'Secrets' by Jacqueline Wilson. I have now read all of her books, and am very happy :)
Currently I am reading 'Perfume' by Patrick Suskind, which is nothing short of amazing.
I'll have to put them both on my list. :)
The last book I read was the hunt for red october, which I may say is quite a bit different from the movie. Still i prefer the book to the movie now, I enjoyed its story a lot better.
The book I'm currently reading is about the golden age of piracy, I forget the title as I just got it today, and I've been drinking. Still thus far its interesting, and somewhat amusing. it opens with a tale of a portugeuse dom who's ship was taken by pirates off the coast of madagascar. The pirates let him live for his bravery in defending his ship(after his crew gave in he continued fighting untill his sword broke), and merely humilated him buy ransoming him for a low price and set him adrift in a long boat bearing his flags.
Oooh cool! When you remember the title, will you tell me what it is? It sounds cool. :)
The last book/s that I read that I actually finished were plays, Private Lives and Les Liaison Dangerous. Oh, and Harry Potter, I was reading aloud for family time.
The books I am reading now are: The Unauthorized Alan Rickman Biography (not that great actually), Something Borrowed (very good) and listening to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty and another Harry Potter book (depends where I am. Harry Potter in the car or work, Sleeping Beauty only in the privacy of my home-It gets pretty hot!)
Edited at 2008-08-23 09:36 am (UTC)
Great plays both!!
And do you like the Sleeping Beauty book? It definitely gets hot, but it's a littel too much for me. I stopped reading it with like fifteen pages left, which I still do regret.. I was just getting SO irritated. I'm submissive by nature when it comes to the bedroom but I wante to strangle half the characters. lol
