Probably should have judged my the cover on that one.
So true, but it was given to me to review and I've been pleasently suprised by some of the books I've received with crappy covers. This was not one of them.
Just finished this one, and promptly forced upon my bookworm friend to read.
Finally finished the Millennium Trilogy. Really good reads.
Also just finished
Really enjoyed it, even though it seemed poorly written.
About 20% done and I have a feeling it's going to be a tearjerker.
Art of Racing in the Rain is one of my top 10 books.
I have this on my to-read list, looks good.
Way better than I was expecting. I'm not usually a fan of this kind of book but I really liked this one.
How did you find it? I just picked it up I do enjoy Maberry's other work!
I enjoyed it. Ending kind left me wanting more. Then I found out there is a 4th book due out next year. SO it all it makes sense
About 1/2 way through. Pretty good one so far, not creepy/weird/sick like most of his.
Just finished reading The Help. I have no idea why it took me so long to start reading it! Great read.
Before that, I read this book, and I still have a book hangover from it.
After reading three great books in a row, I'm afraid to start a new one in case it pales in comparison
Just finished this, about the raid on Osama Bin Laden by the SEAL DEVGRU team. Enjoyed it a lot.
Garfield Sits Around The House by Jim Davis.
7th book in the series, seeing some solid character development and new twists in the old plot line.
3 stars out of 5.
Plenty of belly laughs with just the right amount of thoughtful reflection. Full colour illustration would earn it another star. I often colour the pictures myself out of frustration.
There's a reason Jim Davis is such a revered authour, and it's spelled "Gar-FUCKIN-field"
Good read with lot of info on a classic round.
I only see a red X, what book was it?
What I read this summer:
I recommend them all. I also read Bjork's book, Tommyland by Tommy Lee, Slash's book, and Kat VonD's books (I had to fight hard to make it through hers.....whinny bitch) I bought Duff McKagen's book and unfortunately exposed myself to the 50 Shades of Boring threesome.
Awesome collection of Rock & Roll literature right there! So far I've read Lynyrd Skynyrd - Remembering the Freebirds of Southern Rock by Gene Odom, the three G N' R books; Slash's Slash, Duff McKagan's It's So Easy and Steven Adler's My Appetite for Destruction. Out of them, Duff's was my favorite and the most inspirational for me, but you should definitely check out Adler's book as well. I just recently finished The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx and was thinking of picking up some of the other Motley Crue books, but I also have Keith Richards' Life that I have yet to read in my library as well. Any suggestions on what I should dive into next?
The Outlander by Gil Adamson.
Canadian novel set at the turn of the 20th century. The girl kills her husband and is trying to escape his brothers through the Rockies. Awesome.
I have no idea how this book made so many summer must read lists. I though it was terrible. All the characters were so damn miserable, and that was even before anything bad happened to them!
bump for xmas
just finished this, AWESOME book
next up is
Just finished this one:
And began the sequel, The Twelve.
David Moody's Autumn series. Currently on book 3 of 4 Autumn: Disintegration
Just read "wherever I wonder up" - RA Dickeys autobiography. Good read. Poor fella had a rough upbringing.
Finished this before Christmas, great beach read.
Currently reading this, not that great.
I've been reading alot of Lisa Gardner books lately. I forgot how much I love her! Totally addictive!
Kitchen confidential by Anthony Bourdain
I've read it before and loved it so picked it up again
Bouncing back and forth between these two.
So far a good read, quick paced and interesting.
Off to a slow start, not really what I was expecting, but interesting none the less.
You are reading two books at the same time? I don't think I could ever do that. Once I start reading a book I need to finish it (unless it doesn't hold my attention and then I would just move on)
I've heard about this book for years but never picked it up. I finally started reading it after the Christmas break and it's really good so far.
Haha yeah, I usually always have a few different books on the go. Neil's book is a large hard cover so when I'm travelling it's a bit bulky to carry around, so I have the smaller novel for that purpose. I'll likely read 2 or 3 novels before I finish Neil's book, it's a much slower read.
Currently reading this:
Set in Ireland during the 50's, 60's, and 70's. It's a pretty miserable book so far.
Recently caught up a bit on my reading and finished the following:
Surprisingly enjoyable, even if it's not the kind of thing I normally read. *****
And a bunch of Kelley Armstrongs, "Otherworld" series. Some were better than others but they were all good.
