Just finished the road, by cormac mccarthy. Wow, that was intense! Very good though! I can see why it won the pulitzer prize

I need something lighter next and tomorrow i'm going to start a steampunk, spring heeled jack by mark hodder.

Cannot recommend these books enough!
I downloaded the first one to my Kindle just now. You made them sound so good!

I am engrossed in Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver, thank for the recommendation. I thought the ......?....... Bible was amazing but quite harrowing, while this is so far such a joyful read.

I must try the Outlander series, I often see it on my Kindle offers.

Cindy, I don't think you'll be disappointed in Skallagrigg. It has dated because technology has moved so fast, but it is a powerful read.

Just got "The Inventor and the Tycoon" from the library. I spent the first evening just looking at all the photographs interspersed throughout the book.
===========
One hundred and thirty years ago Eadweard Muybridge invented stop-motion photography, anticipating and making possible motion pictures. He was the first to capture time and play it back for an audience, giving birth to visual media and screen entertainments of all kinds. Yet the artist and inventor Muybridge was also a murderer who killed coolly and meticulously, and his trial is one of the early instances of a media sensation. His patron was railroad tycoon (and former California governor) Leland Stanford, whose particular obsession was whether four hooves of a running horse ever left the ground at once. Stanford hired Muybridge and his camera to answer that question. And between them, the murderer and the railroad mogul launched the age of visual media.

Set in California during its frontier decades, The Tycoon and the Inventor interweaves Muybridge's quest to unlock the secrets of motion through photography, an obsessive murder plot, and the peculiar partnership of an eccentric inventor and a driven entrepreneur. A tale from the great American West, this popular history unspools a story of passion, wealth, and sinister ingenuity.
=============
And finished listening to "Attack of the Theocrats" by a former congressman, now leading a secular lobbying organization. Fascinating.

I ordered Dr. Johnson's Alternate Day Diet for the library yesterday. I have a niggling fear that one of my co-workers will read it and start JUDDDing and surpass me by miles.

Read two books this weekend-last kiss goodnight by gena showalter and etiquette and espionage by gail carriger. Last kiss was simply awful. such a disappointment from one of the best pnr authors out there

On the other hand Etiquette was amazing! Carriger is one of my favorite authors and her writing is only getting better

I just finished reading Ethan Frome. I thought it sounded good based on your description. I didn't remember your comment about "Twilight Zone," but when I looked back at your post here, I totally agree!!!

I also think it's one of those stories I'll always remember.

I hope you like splintered!

I'm partway through The madman's daughter, by megan shepherd. It's a YA horror story inspired by H.G. Well's The island of dr. Moreau. Really good so far!

I just finished legend and prodigy by Marie Lu now have to wait til third book is out. I really liked them. I have a bunch of waiting for the third book series this year actually. Lol! Lauren Oliver's delirium series, Sylvia days crossfire series, the infernal devices by Cassandra Clare......etc etc. I wish the could just release a series all at once!!! I did recently get the graceling series and with income tax I am going to get the birthmarked series. A friend of mine India Drummond is an author in the UK and she has a series that interests me, I might purchase that also. The books of fae is what she writes. My only complaint with my kindle is I can't buy used books for cheap off of Amazon like I used too! Sometimes I hate spending ten bucks an ebook when I would get them for a buck or two uses! Oh well I do love this thing lol!

I have a new book (unpublished) to review for LJ. It was on my desk when I came in this morning, so I guess it came by late afternoon mail Friday after I left work. Not my usual pick, but it's entitled, "You", by Austin Grossman. It's about a young man who joins a gaming studio where he will work with others to create video games...some mysterious software glitch and he's in a race to save his job and the people he works with...

I'll let you know more if you're interested, as I read it.

ETA: I am reading the first Outlander book and a tiny bit disappointed. It's interesting, but not as much as I'd hoped. I've been reading it for a week or more and anxious to move on to something else. Well, now I have to read this new one, lol. My deadline is 2/27.

Please give Outlander a chance Cindy!

I've just finished The Dovekeepeers and The Snow Child....wow! Loved them both. Any more recommendations like these 2 books??

Has anyone read The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared? I keep hearing how great it is from people.

You realize you ladies are killing me here, right? I've been trying not to post in this thread since it started because there's nothing worse than an author horning in on everyone's reading fun, but I love books! I read books! And you're all talking about some of my favorites.

I had to re-start Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER at least three times. Couldn't do it. Ended up buying it on audio instead and then I loooooooooved it!

The DOVEKEEPERS is so beautiful--but then, it's exactly the kind of thing I write, so I would think so. Or at least the kind of thing I hope I am writing.

Yes, Stacy Schiff's book is excellent. But around these parts we never diss the Elizabeth Taylor version because it's got pizzazz, my friend.
