"Black Lamb and Grey Falcon," Rebecca West.
"Falling Leaves" by Adeline Yen Mah…read it in 5hrs flat…couldnt put it down and it broke my heart…reminiscent of "Farewell to Manzanar" but different subject matter….very well written and will suck you in
Stoner by John Williams. For my book group. It's not about what you probs ly think it's about.
Same with One Hundred Years of Solitude. Bless, Gabriel, his writing is beautiful, but I would rather read the phone book…at least the names in it vary more.
That's a big ask.
A Star for Mrs. Blake
Game of Thrones, Book 4
Reading transcending meditation book don't know the author it was a used book
I bet it has lots of pictures so u don't strain a brain cell thinking
LSAT crap…not fun. Lol
"Traveling With The Dead" by Barbara Hambly.
My Booky Wook – Russell Brand
"May We Be Forgiven" by A.M. Homes
The Innocent David Baldacci
The Big Nowhere by James Ellroy
Had to read 2 books the last 2 weeks for work prep, both were actually really good and enjoyable reads. Both memoirs, Unsinkable by Silken Laumann and A House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout. I proffered the latter one, but again, both were good!
I got Doctor Sleep (Stephen King) for Christmas. Still hoping to start reading it soon…
Just finished 1632 by Eric Flint. Well researched alternative history ; a West Va. town is transferred intact to Germany during the 30 years war.Just started Find Me by Carol O'Connell, Cop Mallory tracks a serial killer along the broken bits of the original route 66 ,mirroring her own personal Odyssey… Too bad her partner suspects her of fleeing a murder. Quite an original series.
A Faithful Spy.
What is the what by Dave Eggers
@Vip, how 's the book, I read Carole's first book, and loved her on housewives of NY.
Catching up on VF, then "serious stuff" – will check out the book blog @TTM, maybe ya'll will inspire me?
I just recently bought Gillian Flynn's Dark Places and also Michael Connelly's The Gods of Guilt. However, I'm gonna be showing my girl TTM some love and get the Lawrence Block book and start it pronto.
At this rate we will be collecting Social Security before WoW is released.
I read Await your Reply a few months ago, and I just finished You Remind Me of Me, which is equally weird (good word for it). They definitely are not skimming books – if you miss one paragraph, you can find yourself out of the loop.
Just finally finished Dan Chaon's Await Your Reply. It is really good and really weird. You'll have to read it at least twice to figure it out. I'm also looking at James English's Economy of Prestige as a possibility for one of my classes.
I just finished "Lucky Me: My Life With – and Without, My Mom, Shirley Maclaine" by Sachi Parker. It's a really good autobiography. So many twists and turns. That poor woman had an awful childhood!
The Screwtape Letters
Another Phillipa fan, but man does she fuck up the real history of the Tudors!
I loooove Robert Rankin!!!
I love The Secret History! I tried The Little Friend but never got into it, might have to revisit…@snapdragon join us in the book club, it's going to be fun!
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn.
@Violet, I loved The Secret History. I think it was my favourite of her three books. (Donna Tartt.)
I may check out the book club, y'all.
I know just what you mean, Dizzel. I spent far too much time trying to imagine how different student desks must be these days. All sharp-like. Also all the pubic bone references. I can't remember ever reading something exactly like that before: both incredibly graphic and not even a teeny tiny bit erotic. Not even a smidge.
Darn it @ Jess bobess, your comment alone has made me abandon my prior refusal.
I'm ordering this one up. But, from the library, cause I'm old school like that.
I love "Firestarter", sandybrook, one of my very favourite Stephen King books
@ TTM, as soon as she dragged her arsehole across the corner of the desk to "nick it", I was like, oh hell naw!
Beauty :Detox Solution, by Kimberly Snyder; and Wheat Belly. Trying to get my health back on track 🙂
"Whitey Bulger" by Cullen & Murphy.
The Death of Santini by Pat Conroy
@Haydnhorse, Ditto. Love his books.
The lady of river's is a prequel to the white queen series and I think the white queen series lays the groundwork for the boelyn series.
Soon you'll be with the rest of us waiting for the next book to be written. Those suckers are so complex, I know I'm going to forget some of the story arcs before then.
Had to get the Dyatlov Pass book, sounded intriguing.
Just finished The Little Friend by Donna Tartt last night. So good, but haunted my dreams!
Oops, and Shelly Miscavige
Vanity Fair Hollywood issue. Great articles on Eve Babitz and
Which of her books would you suggest to start on?
Right now game of thrones as over cliche as it sounds and then "Nostradamus Ate My Hamster" by Robert Rankin
Great news! See ya on the blog.
I have been doing some research, for fun, on the connections to some local people of interest. Haven't watched the movie yet, but it sounds like I should read the book 🙂
