Finishing up David Moody's Autumn Book 3 (Purification)
The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin
It's a good read, but pretty depressing/sad.
Prior to that:
I wasn't a huge fan. Interesting story, but felt a bit like reading a textbook.
Good book, recommended by a book hound friend of mine.
4 hour Body by Tim Ferriss, he is pretty nuts.
+rep for a good book
I've actually never seen the movie, or read the book. I kind of have a rough idea of what happens in the movie, but that's about it.
My wife recently got a ton (at least 20-25) of Stephen King books from a friend, and I don't think I've ever actually read one of his books, so I'm going to start with this one and see where it goes from there.
he is my fav author. his short story collections are awesome.
I remember when The Green Mile was released in portions. It was a book a week for 6 weeks or something. Man that was frustrating
thats how I read it....short book by short book
Edit. It was a book a month for 6 months. Now I remember why it was so frustrating
Yea, I have the whole novel, not the separate short books. It's bad enough waiting a week for the next episode of your favorite show to come on, I don't think I could wait a whole month for the next part of the book to come out lol.
Grant has read every single one of his books. Big fan!
Still one of my fav books and movies.
Lots of good SK books. My fav is oddly one of his newer ones-Under the Dome. You'll like that one a lot.
I'm actually reading one of his books right now:
Finished this up(I'm one of those folks that have several on the go at the same time lol)
So so good. Really got into that one.
I'm hoping it gets good. I'm about 5 chapters in and so far....meh.
Read a synopsis of the Prey, and I get the feeling I've read it before, but I don't remember reading any of his books.
Finally finished this book, I've been picking away at it for ages. Lots of interesting information but I found it read much like a textbook.
This was a great beach novel, a quick and easy read.
Awesome, but very graphic and gross in places. Written with a Scottish accent with made the first couple chapters a challenge, lol.
Decent book with tons of awesome food references. I had to break for snacks a few times while reading it.
Drivel. Think Twilight for Christians, but worse.
I don't agree with everything in this book, but it's still pretty awesome. Different from anything I've read before.
Just finished these!
I just finished this:
Wife got me to change my old stand-by authors and try something new.
So I'm reading this:
Finally finished this one:
I'd give it a 3/5. Some very funny parts but the title is misleading and it's not very well written.
3/5 Very interesting story but a little mangled and the ending fell flat. Would have been better as a trilogy.
This is not about snakes so I'm not sure why there are snake fangs on the cover. The fangs refer to wolves, but this is not a werewolf book either. Basically nothing on the cover has anything to do with the book. lol
Very different from anything else I have read, which is nice. Definitely disturbing parts but it's not full of gore and the story line is very engaging. Great book.
just picked this up
I had just started this based on Beans review, but its back on the shelf until I get read the above
First 3 are excellent! Great series!
I will need to check this out! I <3 his stuff!
Sandra Boynton - Doggies
Brilliant really hoping I can make it to 9 tonight
Currently in the middle of:
Alice Hoffman- Dovekeepers
So far so good!
Finished Inferno by Dan Brown in a couple of days. Good read, entertaining.
"The Complete Guide to Triathlon Swimming And Training: Discover How To Quickly And Easily Swim Faster And More Efficiently, Overcome Your Fears, And Have Your Best Triathlon Yet" (great title! It completely fucked up my swim this morning.)
"Hot Boy" by Elmore Leonard
and I am currently reading:
The title of the book intrigues me. What's the plot?
Taken from the chapters website:
"A tiny girl is abandoned on a ship headed for Australia in 1913. She arrives completely alone with nothing but a small suitcase containing a few clothes and a single book-a beautiful volume of fairy tales. She is taken in by the dockmaster and his wife and raised as their own. On her twenty-fi rst birthday, they tell her the truth, and with her sense of self shattered and very little to go on, "Nell" sets out to trace her real identity. Her quest leads her to Blackhurst Manor on the Cornish coast and the secrets of the doomed Mountrachet family. But it is not until her granddaughter, Cassandra, takes up the search after Nell''s death that all the pieces of the puzzle are assembled. A spellbinding tale of mystery and self-discovery, The Forgotten Garden will take hold of your imagination and never let go."
A girl at my work read it and loved it, so she lent the book to me. So far so good!
Sounds good! Kinda like how I got into the Dovekeepers. I would never normally pick up a read like that but it was recommended so I thought I'd give it a shot. It's pretty good! Very imaginative and thoughtprovoking. Let me know how yours pans out! Sounds like an interesting read.
Yeah, I will let you know for sure! It took me a couple of chapters to get into it, but now i'm hooked. Makes me wish I had more free time to read!
just finished this yesterday, awesome read . was tough to put down
now I need a new one to find
Just finished reading Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men.
Interestingly written, the movie didn't sway far from the book, read it on the flight back from Halifax to Edmonton. Great way to pass 6 hours.
