GTKY (Do we do that here?)

Help me procrastinate on the project I'm supposed to be working on! What is the last book you read at least part of? I'm currently working my way through How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk. It's a good read so far!

Re: GTKY (Do we do that here?)

  • I started The Only One. Not sure if it's going to be good yet. I usually only read fiction in the summer at the beach / lake. @pandawares I might have to try that one!!
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*

  • I read like a maniac.  I  finished Big Little Lies just in time for the HBO mini-series.  Now I am almost done with ANita Shreive's White on Snow.  Next up is open for suggestion!  My favorite authors are Jumpa Lahari and Alice Hoffman.

    @justsuzie  I love Anita Shreive  

    I'm reading Truly, Madly, Guilty.  It was voted as 2016 best fiction book according to a Goodreads poll.  I am struggling to get through it.  I have about 50-60 pages left.  I always feel too invested in  book to give up so I trudge through.

  • I wish I read more but the last fiction book I read was a out crime.  I can't recall name. My DH is reading a Stephan king book that he said I might like so I might read that. 
  • World Without End, the sequel to The Pillars of the Earth (after I blasted through that). Fiction, but I love all things Middle Ages ;-). Couldn't put either one down!

    So good. It's really long, but I blasted through it.

  • This is one of my FAVORITE books of all time. It is a story about a boy and his dogs and an adventure.

  • @justsuzie I did, but I can't remember when. Great book! I have The Constant Princess and The Other Queen (by her) sitting on my nightstand, but I just got the new James Patterson Michael Bennet series book from the library which is gonna come first...love all his stuff except for the Private and Alex Cross series.

  • We just read Hillbilly Elegy for my book club. It was good, but intense. Other than that, I'm currently reading Umentionable: The Victorian Lady's Guide to Sex, Morals, and Manners. It's a quick, interesting read about what life would have been like for a woman in Victorian times, mostly covering hygiene, clothes, courtship, sex, birth control, etc. It takes the perspective where it drops the modern day reader into the 1700s/1800s. Hint: It's not at all romantic like a Jane Austen novel... Lol.

  • @RiverSong15 My principal recommended that book to me. It is in my que.  It's completely different that what I normally read.
  • @justsuzie I'm liking it because I love Jane Austen novels/movies, and I'm finding it funny to think of the reality of what life was like. It makes me really glad I'm living in the age I am!

  • @RiverSong15 I just put that on my library list. Sounds fascinating!

  • I read like a maniac too lol. Books I've read lately and loved have been; This is How it Always Is by Laurie Frankel about a transgendered child, Rules of Civility by Amor Towles very Gatsby esque and A Man Called Ove. I also always recommend The Girl You Left Behind by JoJo Moyes the author Me Before You - its historical fiction and so good!

    @justsuzie - what do you think of Big Little Lies on HBO? I've only watched the first episode but I really think it does the book justice. Loved that book!

    @SP128 - truly madly guilty kind of picks up in the end but wasn't my favorite of her books. The whole time I was reading it I was just thinking what the heck happens at that BBQ? Lol

    @RiverSong15 - that book sounds funny I love Jane Austen so I will have to check it out.

  • @TScalei I actually really like all of the characters except Jane. I think that was a poor choice in actress.  I saw that character as someone completely different, a bit more animated and disheveled.  The HBO Jane seems so boring. 
  • @justsuzie -  yes I kind of agree re Jane she is now who I pictured while reading. Other than that I think it is casted very well. Love Reese as Madeline and love the Monterey setting.

  • I haven't read much lately but I enjoy the plum series by Janet evanovich - definitely easy reads

    DH has been desperately trying to get me to finish BLL.

    I love the Stephanie plum books from Janet Evanovich too @bpietronicco !!  Also, the Kate Burkholder series from Linda Castillo. They are all in an Amish setting. I am so fascinated with the Amish. Great books!

  • What does GTKY stand for?  I can't figure that one out!

    Currently reading The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling.  It's good but I haven't been reading as much as I should!

  • @katekate628 I will have to check the Kate burkholder series out! Sounds interesting! Glad to find another Stephanie Plum fan. Did you see the movie? I was Not impressed- Katherine Heigl is not who I think of when I think of a Stephanie.
  • @bpietronicco I did see the movie! I was also not impressed with her as Stephanie. I thought Sandra Bullock maybe. Most of that casting was bad. I would have picked shemar Moore for Ranger though, Timothy Olyphant as Morelli, Betty white as Grandma Mazur. Lol
