Currently reading Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. I'm half way throught the book and it's finally captured my attention. I'm hoping the last half of the book makes up for the first half. 

 

Well, I'm finished and the I have to admit, the last half was very good. It surprised me and I like to be surprised. Still, I don't think it makes up for the first half which was painstakingly slow. But I'd still recommend it, if you have nothing else to read.

UPS just delivered my book from Barnes and Noble.  "Laced" by Carol Higgins Clark. It is from her Regan Reilly mystery series; I have read a few other books from that series, so I dont think I will be disappointed.

I finished up Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand over the weekend and also read Marley and Me. I am now rereading Sense and Senseability over for the book club.

"Eon: Dragoneye Reborn" by Alison Goodman. It's actually quite good and it has me interested! Well, I'm just a sucker for dragons anyway. :smileyhappy:

I am now reading the Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I am enjoying this book. I had read his other book, A Thousand Splendid Suns and I would have to say that it is an awesome book.
