I read that last year I think, or the year before. I've recommended it a few times. It's beautiful.

Yes. It is accidental, however.

Aww, I didn't mean on this thread, lol, Cindy. Maybe I did, I'm too lazy to go back and check. I meant IRL. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Cindy recommended The Night Circus earlier in this thread, or in another thread before this one was started. Hey, I think it was in my journal. I read it, and loved it.

Will surely be getting The Dovekeepers.

I was thinking about extraordinary books last night and realised that I haven't mentioned Skallagrigg by William Horwood. It is no longer in print but available second hand on the usual sites. Of course your library may well have a copy Cindy.

It is an extraordinary book about the horrors of the 'care' of the disabled during the earlier part of the last century and the amazing difference computer technology has made to the lives of so many with Cerebral Palsy.

Has anyone read Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper? That was really good. I am trying to get into Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling but so far it isn't very good. Has anyone read it? Does it get better or should I just bring it back to the library now?

With the crazy hours I work, I haven't had the time nor energy to read more than a handful of books in the last few years (which is a drastic change for me).

I did, however, start reading one this weekend, and it's proving to be hilarious -- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies -- a bizarre mashup of Jane Austen, ninjas, and zombies, but it makes me giggle nonetheless.

Best. Book. Ever.


I did a lot of reading this weekend-finished King's 11/22/63, which I enjoyed but it was a bit too slow for me. Then yesterday I read a historical romance, And Then He Kissed Her by Laura Lee Guhrke. It was ok but nothing special.

This afternoon I'm going to start Splintered by A.G. Howard. This is a YA fantasy story that's about a great-great-great granddaughter of The Alice, who fears she's going mad, like the other women in her family. Then she discovers that Wonderland really does exist, but it's much darker than Lewis Carroll’s version. It's actually listed as YA fantasy-horror Can't wait to read it-it's getting a lot of positive buzz right now!

Sara, I like the sound of "Splintered".

I totally agree about P&P&Zombies. I recommend it to everyone. Sooo funny.

Finished Splintered and loved it! The ending left room for a sequel, but it wrapped everything up nicely so you weren't left hanging

I also read Ship Breaker, by Paolo Bacigalupi, and gave it a high 5 star rating. It's a YA dystopia and has won numerous awards and nominations, including the 2011 Printz award

Next up is another YA dystopia story, Altered by Jennifer Rush.

Finished to bed a highlander by maya banks and it was a solid historical romance next i'll be reading the road, by cormac mccarthy. This is an adult dystopia story and a movie has been made from it.

I believe the road was filmed about 5 mins from my house! They used woods from a friend of ours for a lot of the filming! They got to meet all the actors! They just film another movie over the summer. I know woody harlson (sp?) Is in it. They had cannons going off for days!!!! I love living in the country here. Woods everywhere and they film around us a lot!

Right now I'm a sahm and two of my kids are in school during the day, so I usually have several hours open for reading everyday That might change this fall though, when my youngest goes off to kindergarten-hoping to get a part time job then

I'm hoping to start it today sometime-have dentist and allergist appointments though, which will cut into my reading time

We did not have this book in our collection, but we soon will. Thank you for the recommendation!
