For some odd reason, I like reading my grandsons books. He read the Percy Jackson books so that's what I'm reading now and I'm trying to talk him into reading Harry Potter but he's not interested yet, he's 10.


Love Percy Jackson!

I'm a big chick lit fan and at the moment I'm currently reading Love Rules by Freya North. However, if you want a tear jerker, read anything by Cecelia Ahern. The beautiful author of P.S I Love You.

A bit of a shameless plug here:

I'm reading 'The Adventures of Rosie Crucial' by Kim Farnell (my best friend's mum) and although I am biased...it#s really fantastic, please check it out!

"The Adventures of Rosie Crucial is an historical novel full of characters that don't realise they are historical. The story navigates events from the dark to the farcical in the occult underworld of late Victorian England.


All Rosie wants is to avoid anything disagreeable. However, renown attaches itself to many an unwilling soul and she knows that if she leaves everything to Constance and Emily, their lives will be filled with no more than lemon cake and ribbons. Andrew simply wants to have an adventure and Babula is only an occasional juggler. So things get out of hand very quickly.



In quest of the unknown, the spectacular, bizarre and differently entertaining, this fameless five head across the globe. They move effortlessly from drawing room séances to exotic fakirs and from fairies to Ferris wheels (but never quite to Sweden). Yet lifes mundanities constantly interfere with their mission. They discover why corpses are notoriously difficult to dispose of, and how aspiration to higher thought offers little protection against the passions stirring within. However, their biggest problem is the disorganised aspect of their committee meetings.


These are the people destined to lead the world into a new spiritual age. Oh, dear."

I am reading 2 different books right now they are Blood Noir by Laurell K. hamilton if you like reading about vampires werewolves(NOT anything like twilight promise) and things like that I definitely advise this author and her Anita Blake series just be fair warned they can get a little racy. I am also currently reading the final vampire academy book which is another fantastic series!! I could also recommend anything by jodi picoult she is another amazing author!!

I am reading At Home by Bill Bryson.

Bill Bryson is good for anyone who likes history and/or useless knowledge. Caro might like his books.

I've just finished "The wise man's fear", by Patrick Rothfuss. It's second to a trilogy called The Kingkiller Chronicle (First book is The Name of the Wind). It's great in a way I didn't remember books being great. Lots of detail and quite heavy, just in case your not into that. Has anyone read them? I can't find anyone to discuss them at home...

I'm reading this one...

It actually has a movie counterpart that gathered quite a lot of controversy in Japan way back in 2000. But I can't just stop reading it! The book is definitely worth a good read; it's got much better coverage than its movie counterpart.

I am currently reading Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough, its a very fantastic series, the first one is called Once a Witch, its a very interesting take on witches and it had me on the edge of my seat and its looking like the second book is doing the same.

I tend to read a lot, I am going to be reading after Always a witch Fallen, by Lauren Kate, and The Demon Trappers Daughter, by Jana Oliver.

The one book I am looking forward to most in the next few months is Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick. Her books are amazing and the Hush, Hush series seriously is one of my favorites,

As for some of the books named before, I loveeddd the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, I am actually going to be in the process of re-reading them. I also lovveeeee The mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare, I have read all four, and read the first three like five times now. She is my favorite author and that is my favorite series hands down.

A few series I would recommend would a series by Andrea Cremer, its only a trilogy but its one freaking good trilogy. The books are Nightshade, Wolfsbane, and the last one that comes out in February of next ear BloodRose. Its one seriously good series, her take on werewolves is amazing.

Another series I love, the Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins That is a good series as well, what can I say I read a lot. But I Love this series, although be warned she loves cliffhangers. I am dyiinnggggg for Spell Bound.

Okay one more series its called the 13 to life, by Shannon Delany series, Another really interesting series you could find and another really interesting spin on werewolves. She also likes Cliffhangers as well.

Okay that is enough from me, but as you can see I loveee fantasy genre.

I watched the first season of "Game of Thrones" and it rocked! Can't wait for season 2!! I was so tempted to get the books when I was at the Borders closeout sale... do you like them much Augustus?

I still have about 8 Philippa Gregory books to read that I got for Christmas! She is the one who wrote "The Other Boleyn Girl" and the "Wideacre" series (which are an awesome trilogy!). Anyone who is interested in Renaissance/ King Henry VIII/Elizabethan era stories, she has many that I've read and enjoyed such as::

The Boleyn Inheritance (which is written as if you were reading 3 different women's journals)
The Queen's Fool
The Virgin's Lover

I've also recently read::
Palace Circle. This one is great because its the same story told from different points of view. Really unique.
Lady MacBeth

and I'm currently reading A Lion Among Men but I'm finding it tough to get through. I've read pretty much all of Gregory Maguire's books (Wicked, Son of a witch, Mirror Mirror, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister....) and I've loved them. Just finding this one hard to concentrate on.

Memoirs of a Geisha! One of my absolute favorite books.

Any Janet Evanovich Books. I love her Stephanie Plum Series, they crack me up so bad. Your life seems less interesting after reading about her's.

And cause I'm slightly soft- Dear John.
