What is everyone reading (revisited)?

[ Edited ]

I know we've had other threads on this, but they start to get long and buried.

 

I just finished:  

The 8th Confession (Women's Murder Club Series #8)

I'm reading Flood

 

 

 

Flood

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not sure about it yet, not to far into it, but also glad I got it from the library.  I've got Noah's Compass from the library waiting to be read also.

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

I'm reading Lessons from an Evil Mind. Interesting read so far but VERY disturbing.

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

I am halfway through Ancestor, and absolutely addicted to it.  I hardly want to put my Nook down to sleep or post on here.

Just got done with The Road and could read it again right now. 

 

However, I am now reading Animal Farm. I read 1984 and loved it. Not that these are the same type of books, but Orwell is genius.

Animal Farm is still one of my favorites and I haven't read it in over 20 years (in high school).

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

Currently I'm reading:

 

The Passage

  

I got caught up in all the hype and couldn't help myself. I'm only 150 pages in but so far it's really good.

 

 

Next, I'm going to read:

 

Killing Floor (Jack Reacher Series #1)

  

I had never read a Jack Reacher book until B&N offered the free coupon for Jack Reacher #9.  I loved it so now I want to read all of them.  The free coupons were a great way to introduce people to a new series.  Thanks B&N!!!

How do you like the Mortal Instrument series?   I finished the Hunger Games, and I'm hungry for more! Sadly - no eBook version of the next two installments. Hopefully when MockingJay comes out, Chasing Fire will be available. *crossing fingers*

 

Have you read the Percy Jackson series? It's another good YA, and I like Mythology, so it's kind of cool.   How about The Unsuspecting Mage? Another good YA series (feels more like RPG to me!)

 

   I'm currently reading Percy Jackson #2 and Chi Running. :smileyhappy:

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

Currently I'm reading 

 

Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help -- Extended Version

 

which just became available on Smashwords for $1.99!  This is the "Director's Cut" of the original version, and even more laugh-out-loud funny.

 

And I'm reading

 

 

Winter's Heart (Wheel of Time Series #9)

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This month's Robert Jordan Wheel of Time release.

Don't let it worry you, JJ -- we men never grow up.  We just get older, and our toys get more expensive.

Dead until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire Series #1) (True Blood)

 

Currently working my way through this. So far, it's boring and kind of trashy, but I can never just give up on a book, especially one that is only 200 pages.

 

Probably going to start Ancestor next.

The YA books I have read are:

  • Twilight Saga
  • Percy Jackson Series
  • Red Pyramid
  • The Unsuspecting Mage
  • Vampire Diaries
  • Maze Runner
  • Ender's Saga
  • And a lot of the "classic" YA books

 

It has just been recently that I have gotten on a YA kick as I usually read more adult fantasy/military fiction/suspense/horror/mystery etc.ect.

 

The MI series is good and I am about half way done the third book.  Its not as much YA as I am used to as there is swearing, intimacy, etc.  I am looking forward to the infernal devices series which is going to be a prequel series the MI series.  Also there is going to be a 4th book in the MI series next march I believe.

 

I actually asked for advice on the YA thread on an order to read some YA books and this is what they told me:

  • Hunger Games
  • House of Night
  • Night World
  • Maximum Ride

Speaking of the YA board check it out here if your interested!!!

 

So we will see how many of these books i get thru before i decide to go back to my usual pickings!

 

@ABThree Hahaha that is to funny and from my limited experience soooooo true

That is the one I really want to read now.  I'm about 2/3 through Demonkeeping and I think it is great.  I was wondering if I should read his books in order though.  I read on the boards earlier that you don't have to but if anyone has an opinion on this, I would appreciate it.

 

Thanks
