Re: What book are you currently reading??

I just finished up "The hour I first believed" by Wally Lamb which was fabulous. And also The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry which blew me away with that ingenius writing the author did. And I was lucky enought to get a advanced reading edition of Adriana Trigiani's new novel, "Very Valentine" It will be out the first part of February just in time enought for Valentine's day because it is filled with love and happiness. Every book she writes just gets better and better. How does she do it? You definitely want to devour it in one setting. Oh! but savaar it awhile, let it sink in your head and heart and you will be more the better for it.

Kiakar - Didn't you just hate to see Very Valentine end? I loved that book!!! If you haven't read, Lucia, Lucia by her, try that one. It's soooo good!!  I reviewed both of them here. She's going to be on center stage I think in Feb. We have to make sure we tell her how great her new book is. I can't wait for the sequels to it.

Haven't been able to finish Pest Control. I left it at work and a co-worker took it home. So...I've picked up Still Alice by Lisa Genova--a story about a 50 year old who is diagnosed with Alzheimer's. An easy read so far, and--some of  you out there will understand--easy to read print for those over 40 year old eyes!

Just finished The Host by Stephanie Meyer - a very interesting and gripping science fictiony novel that explores human nature.  Currently reading the page-turner third novel of Libby Bray's supernatural trilogy The Sweet Far Thing. The first two, A Great and Terrible Beauty, and Rebel Angels, were equally enjoyable and fun.

Finishing up New Moon - it's such an easy read I don't have trouble reading others as well.

 

Also just started 'Honolulu' by Alan Brennert. I got an advance reader's copy, the book doesn't come out till March. When I does, I HIGHLY recommend it - I haven't read anything this good since the Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Re: What book are you currently reading??

I'm currently reading Ghost Train to the Eastern Star  which is an excellent travel book by Paul Theroux.  So far starting in London he's gone by rail, very quickly through Europe, then through Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and now where I am in the book, he's in India.  Looking forward to the rest of his trip into southeast Asia and then finally up to Japan.  Really interesting stuff, he has a way of getting really fascinating dialogue out of the people he meets on his trip.

 

I just finished Way Through Doors  by Jesse Ball which was wonderful - check out my review!

Boy am I glad I read this! I loved Brennert's other book Moloka'i (it's one of my top recommendations) and I'm thrilled he has written a new one! How did you get and advanced copy?
