Reading?

Are any of you reading anything good?

I just picked up Bringing Up Bebe and The Paris Wife on Monday from the library.  I couldn't put either of them down.  So, either they're that good, or I was just STARVED for something to read.

I have Gone Girl and a few books on education reserved already at the library, but has anyone read anything good lately?

I promise I won't judge you for your reading tastes...  ;)

Re: Reading?

  • Okay, they're super meaty and require some dedication, but I always recommend Dianna Gabaldon's Outlander series. They're fabulous. An intriguing mix of historical fiction, science fiction/ time travel and romance. It's one epic story with each of the books acting like a chapter in the story. And, bonus, with 8 books so far, each averaging about 800 pages, you won't need to wonder what to read until... like, next year!

    I've read the entire series all the way through 3, almost 4 times now. They're that good.

  • I'm no help. I've been reading crappy romance and mystery novels. Dh's grandma left two bookshelves full when she passed away. Or porn on the tablet since a good friend from high school now makes her living writing erotica!

    Gone Girl was good though. Aside from the end ticking me off.

    The Mists of Avalon is my old favorite though. I don't even like fantasy/period stuff but it's that good.

  • Do you like Neil Young?  Even if you don't, his biography Waging Heavy Peace is amazing.  You may be able to connect with all the CA references too.

    I've been stuck on Huck Finn for months.  That is one hard book to read, but I'm determined to finish it regardless.

  • I'm currently reading The Cider House Rules. I've never watched the movie so I had no idea what the story was about. It's a very fascinating book. I'm like a quarter of the way done and I already really like it. 

    I plan to read more John Irving in the future.  

  • I just started the Wheel of Time series. It's 14 novels, epic fantasy. I like the first one a lot so far, I'm about halfway through. The books are loooong though so we will see if I'm still into the storyline once I get to the third or fourth book.

    Ooohhhh I really got into the Wheel of time. I have read all the books. My only issue is that so much time passes between each book and there are so many characters and plots going on I always have that feeling that I'm forgetting some important detail.

    Also? DH's goto screen name for gaming and stuff is Mat Cauthon. And before he got me into WOT, he tried to convince me to name our hypothetical future daughter Nynaeve.

    That's a great book.  And a very good movie.

    Oh DH loves those books.  Those are the ones where the author died before finishing and had another guy come in and prepared him to finish the series for him, right?  If so, he's currently rereading it from the beginning after he finished the last book a few months ago.

    He's mad at Joey for tearing one of the books clean in half lol

    So far yes! I'm only able to read 12 chapters a day but I don't want to put it down!
