Friday Book Club

Time to talk books!

I'm currently about two thirds of the way through Justin Cronin's The Passage, and finding it compelling reading. I'm hoping to finish it this weekend.

What're you reading this week?

I've been reading a bit of YA recently. After finishing Bleeding Violet (one of my favorite top ten reads of 2010, not for everybody, but I enjoy that kind of crazy), I read Shadowed Summer and Academy 7. Both were very good and each had their strengths. I enjoyed the writing of Shadowed Summer more (you good taste the words), while I liked the overall story of Academy 7 more (sci-fi surprise!). Right now I'm reading Heist Society by Ally Carter, hoping to finish that soon. ^^

Uh oh, I hated The Passage. But would love to know what you think.

I may start on The Help because my mother can't stop raving about it.

I just finished Angel Slayer by Michele Hauf. A bit of a twist on the genre with Angels being the badies and Demons being the goodies. I found it a little slow to start but worth sticking with in the end. Up next is my non-fiction book for the month, Stories from the Animal Whisperer!

I loved "Grim" by Gesa Schwartz. I´m also reading some J.D. Robb, and in the middle of "Rumo" by Walter Moers. After that Ißm trying to get my hands on the Gallager Girls series by Ally Carter.

I've just finished reading On the Edge (Ilona Andrews), which was great. I've started Vanished (Kat Richardson) and am hoping to read Melissa Marr's Fragile Eternity next week.

Have a lovely weekend all :)

I have just finished Trudi Canavan's "The Ambassador's Mission" and have started Shannon Hale's "The Goose Girl", which I'm loving because I'm a sucker for fairytale retellings.

Eva said...

Nalini, I´m reading it too at present:-).

Lauren Hunt said...

I actually just finished Stormwalker by Allyson James. It was really good. It had the suspense, romance, heat, and it was also kind of a mystery all in one. I highly reccomend it. The sequal Firewalker will be realesed in November and im pretty pumped. I think you and all your fans would enjoy it!

I'm currenly reading Elizabeth Boyle's 'His Mistress By Morning' and really loving it. I like her books but held out on this one because of the whole time thing, which I usually don't care for, but am loving it so far! Great stuff! As usual, Mrs. Boyle doesn't disappoint!

I finished Marked by Elisabeth Naughton yesterday -- paranormal romance with a basis in
Greek mythology. It was a fun summer read. I am hoping to start Line of Fire by Jo Davis today -- yummy, sexy firefighters!

I'm reading Broken by Shiloh Walker. I'm liking it more then the first in the series, but that's probably just because I'm a sucker for wounded warriors :-)

Louise said...

I'm reading "The Unwriten Rule" by Elizabeth Scott.
I really like it so far;)

Funnily enough, I just finished Archangel's Kiss. I enjoyed it very much. I like Angel's Blood better. (Finished that this morning.) I have another of your books somewhere around here that I haven't read yet. Guess I'll have to dig it out. Happy weekend!

I read "Claimed" and "Mated"by zoe Winters. Two short paranormal the first one is about a vampire that falls for a human and the second one about the king of werewolves and a very traumatized woman as his mated. they were .99 each to download on PDF format bt is good to download in any other ebook reader. The first story is up for free at the author website. I really enjoy these.

Barbarita V said...
