What are you reading?

Postby milkyway » Mon Oct 22, 2007 12:59 am

I am currently reading 'Shantaram' by Gregory David Roberts and John Irving's 'Until I find you'. I am always reading more than one book at once... how about you?

The last book I read was 'Life of Pi' which was great... I read it while sailing down the Ganges River in India :)

Hey Shel - 'Life of Pi' is not for everyone but I loved it. I squealed with delighted shock when I finally figured out who Richard Parker was ;)

Maybe there was something about being in India and reading about India and an Indian boy's journey...

Just finished Tamora Pierce's The Will of the Empress... again... I've read all her books soooo many times!!! But I'm really sad at the moment, cos she was in a car accident and hasn't been well enough to write, and all her new books have been pushed back! :(

Right now I'm reading a book called The Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. I'm loving it, too. In my opinion it's one of those books that would make a great movie.

I'm currently reading "witches abroad" from the Discworld series by Terry Pratchet. Discworld tends to never be too far from by bedside. I just finished a book called "Why Manners Matter" which was great too.

I'm reading Hot Six of Stephanie Plum's series by Janet Evanvoch. So far I'm loving the series, it quite funny because she a Bounty Hunter always getting into trouble with love and life. I highly recommend reading the series.

The Andrew Johns book. And I cant reccommend it enough. I have grown up watching footy and have always gone for newcastle and I am a major fan of his both for his sporting life and life in general, so this is a great read.

My hubby didnt think I would be able to read it because I always read those light romance books but i cant put it down, its great !!!!
