I am really enjoying 14 by Peter Clines. Not great be pretty good. The last one I really enjoyed was 11/22/63 by S. King....it was awesome!

Last book you really enjoyed

THB I only read 1 book in 2012 (none in 2013 yet) and it was Shutter Island. Didn't really enjoy it, read it for a book club, and I can't remember what book I read before that one.

If you count audiobooks I can actually add to the discussion lol.

I am reading through The Dresden Chronicles by Jim Butcher. They are really enjoyable fantasy fluff. Also read Troy by David Gemmell.

i've been rereading the Emberverse series by S. M. Stirling...i really enjoyed them the first go-round, and now he's released more than the first three books so i'm able to continue the story past book 3. i also like his Nantucket series quite a bit.

That would be a hard one to answer as I read so many books. I've been working in a bookstore for almost 23 years and I read 2 to 3 books a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less. It just depends on what I've got going on. My favorite books to read are Fiction thrillers. I read James Patterson, Lee Child, Vince Flynn, Stephen Hunter, Harlan Coban, Michael Connelly, just to name a few. If you like thrillers, you can't go wrong with any of these authors. I'm currently reading the new Stephen Hunter book, "The Third Bullet". One of Stephen Hunter's books was made into a movie called "Shooter" with Danny Glover and Michael Wahlberg. Excellent writer and great movie.

I just finished the Song if Ice and Fire books too and am eagerly awaiting #6! I recently read Dark Storm by Christine Feehan, I liked it but it was not one I enjoyed as much as her other books. There are several coming out this year that I am excited about reading!

I listened to 14 on Audible

It was pretty good.

Now I am pretty eclectic with books as I read/listen to just about anything so here are some of my favorites.
Non Fiction

Between Silk and Cyanide (Leo Marks)- FANTASTIC BOOK! Bring a thesaurus to the reading. It's about the British WWII Code Maker, he was really young I think 20 when he was in charge of making the codes.

Salt- The history of salt just finished listening to it on Audible (pretty good too!)

Fiction
Arturo Pérez-Reverte - Author. He has some wild books and if you liked 14 pick up something like The Club Dumas, The Seville Communion, The Nautical Chart, The Flanders panel... Etc.... He also writes historical fiction the Captain Alatriste books. I don't like them as much as the ones set in modern times but interesting none the less. He's a Spanish author and his books have a very non-American feel to them. Kinda like you know Stieg Larsson wasn't American because his books also don't "feel" American.

An Instance at the Fingerpost- Engrossing book written by Iain Pears. Historical Fiction but with unreliable narrators. He also writes other stuff but I've never found anything of his I've liked quite as much.

Humor
Sweet Potato Queens Book of Love- And really all of the Sweet Potato Queens books.
Patrick F McManus Books - The Grasshopper Trap, They Shoot Canoes Don't They, The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw etc...

Anything by Fannie Flagg- Not exactly humor but very humorous characters especially if you are familiar with the south at all.

Christopher Moore- Love this author sort of science fiction/fantasy adult humor. The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove had me in stitches.

Can you tell I don't own a TV?

I recently read a book called The Dog Stars, a post-disaster(flu) scenario book. Forgot the author. Also one called Zoo, same type, pollution changed the way animals interpret pheronomes(sp?) and they started killing people. They were both somewhat disturbing and made me want to go out and buy an assault rifle, just in case.

Now I'm reading French Kids Eat Everything.

woohoo!

My last great listen was Dracula, one of my favorite books. Superb cast with Tim Curry as Van Helsing. American Gods is also good. It was a relisten and George Guidall is a talented narrator. If you're into Stephen Colbert, his 2 books are hilarious. I Am America (And So Can You!) is the first one, America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't is the second.

Reading is hard with a 3 year old who likes to ask "whatchu doing?" every 5 minutes but he plays quietly for audiobooks and tries to listen too so it's been working out for me. Audible's awesome sales and freebies don't hurt either.

Just finished Keri Arthur's - newest dark angel book in the series

My favorite author is Kim Harrison (demons, fairies, witches, vampires)

Patricia Briggs (werewolves)

Carrie Vaughn (werewolves)

Faith Hunter (shapeshifter)

Gerry Bartlett (vampires)

JR Ward (vampires and angels)

Sensing a theme? (haha)
I'm on shelfari if anyone else is and wants to follow me or me to follow them

Have you read any of the Dark Hunter books by Sherrilyn Kenyon? I love the early books in that series, up to Acheron.

I'm currently re-reading the Game of Thrones books as well, in anticipation of the premier of the next season of the TV show. I also just ordered book five of the Outlander series from the library.

I loved the book, "Cleopatra: A Life," by Stacy Schiff. Really fascinating.

Last book that I really enjoyed that's a new read is probably the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. It's very very far out of my usual genres but it was for one of my english classes at my college and it's earned a permenent spot on my bookshelf. Books are rather expensive so I haven't been able to read as much new stuff as I would really have liked.

My usual genres are fantasy, urban fantasy, a little bit of supernatural horror although not hardcore stuff to avoid nightmares, and old classics like Oliver Twist, Dracula, Les Mes, etc. Tolkien, Wooding, Pierce, deLint, those are all welcome names on my bookshelf.

I'm currently in a reread of the Hobbit via audiobook while I work on class projects- I want to finish rereading before I see the movie. Then its a reread of the Mortal Instruments series, though I'm ignoring #4-6. I have a lot of reading for one of my classes this semester so any print media that I need to devote 100% of my attention to recreationally has to wait for now.

I dont read books

However, the last couple flights I took, I read 'rich dad poor dad' and '**** my dad says'

Both were quick and easy on my neanderthal brain.

Audio books are amazing. I drive 2 hours a day to and from work and the only thing keeping me sane in traffic is listening to them.

I am listening to George R R Martin right now. I'm on book 2 "Clash of Kings". It is amazing. I am really enjoying this series so far.

I don't read many professionally published books anymore. I'm even two or three books behind in the Alex Cross series by James Patterson that I read religiously since high school.

I can't even remember that last really good book I read. In the last few years they've mostly be reading just to be read, or I started the series and wanted to finish it.

I am however, ALWAYS on fanfiction.net and archiveofourown.org. Both sites are free to post stories on and with some sifting I have found some VERY good stories written by people who could in my opinion be published very easily if they wrote a wholely original story.

I do tend to like dystopias. Something about that knot in the pit of your stomach that makes you not able to put down the book (or tablet).

The Dog Stars sounds interesting! I might just check that one out.

I read a lot. I am currently reading The Accidental Anarchist. I have a kindle, and download a lot of free books - all the classics, lots of old favorites, and they also have all sorts of specials of free books for a day or less - you catch them, wonderful... if you don't, then you have to pay if you want them. I got The Art of Running in the Rain and a number of other cool things free. I'm waiting for the secret special freebie for Fifty Shades of Gray! LOL!!! That'll probably never happen!

I agree with the Game of Thrones books. They are fantastic!

I'm waiting for if/when all the books come out for GoT. I hate the thought of starting something I can't finish. I have plenty of books on my TBR list so I have no issues waiting.
