Thanks for more recommendations!! As i was falling asleep last night I was thinking what am I going to read next? I think I will read Hunger Games
I know what you mean about "withdrawal" @Donnam! I'm glad you're liking Outlander...that was another one of my favorites this year.
The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.
Has anybody been reading anything good lately?
Today I went to the 'brary and picked up two books from author Louise Penny (rec by @Donnam): Bury Your Dead and The Cruelest Month. Donna, these don't need to be read in any order, do they, b/c I didn't p/u her first book.
Also got a copy of Mercy by Jodi Picoult--I don't think I've ever read any of her books before.
I was going to get the Hunger Games but couldn't find the dang thing as I think it was in the teen Sci Fi section and the main library didn't have it.
@nycbullymama, I tried to finish The Passage but I'm afraid to say, it just wasn't jiving with me...The first part was quite good...had me reading it every day but when I got to the part with the "colony" and the new set of characters, well...i soon got quite lost and not as interested in the characters any longer...
But that's okay, b/c that's what this thread is about--checking out and trying out, new authors and titles that we normally never would have heard of on our own, perhaps.
Henny @cali baker, I don't think you really have to read Louise Penny's novels in order. I did, because I always try to start a series at the first and you can just order them off of Amazon without worrying about availability. So I'm not sure if there are things you won't get. If you like them, just stick to the earlier books before the later ones. I'm still reading The Outlander. I like it a lot, but I'm finding it a little easier to put down than I would if I hadn't seen the series on Starz. The series did follow the book very well.
ok, thanks @Donnam. As it turned out I got book #3 and #6 of the Inspector Gamache series. I can't wait to dig in and start reading!
I never did watch the Outlander series which I'm glad for b/c I really had no idea how the story would unfold so that kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting to keep reading the book.
I don't know, after reading 11/22/63, is there another book that will top its awesomeness?
I don't know @cali baker!! 11-22-63 was so good I literally devoured it and couldn't put it down. I think it's my favorite Stephen King book ever and I've liked a lot of his books. Maybe I'll wait a year or so and read it again!
My latest purchase is "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing"
Have heard good things about it and I'm so looking forward to organizing my closets (and life lol).
