Only two months left in 2012! I'm starting off November with Alan Bradley's The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag. What are you reading?

I finished reading the play November this afternoon - overall, a 'meh' response from me - and about to dive back into the last two parts of 2666.

I am reading We Band of Angels about American Nurses that were serving in the Philippines when war with Japan broke out. Excellent book. On a the lighter side, I am also reading The Chili Queen by Sandra Dallas.

I started I Know This Much is True and I'm enjoying the writing, but I've yet to grasp where the story is going.

Just finished How's the Pain? by Pascal Garnier and working out to review this excellent French noir and meanwhile started This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch it by David Wong, the follow up to hilarious slacker horror John Dies at The End (Its fab so far).

I have a few pages left in The Water's edge. A Karin Fossum book is ususally a satisfying read for me. I'm also reading Villette in spurts.

17RidgewayGirl
nov 8, 2012, 10:37am

psutto, I'm eager to see what you think of A Fraction of the Whole. It's on my TBR.

I've finished the underwhelming The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf and am continuing with Baudolino's fantastic adventures and Margaret Atwood's The Robber Bride.

I'm currently in a lull and aren't reading anything at all. I have started a couple of books, but my brain has decided that watching movies and cracking out on old TV-series is the only thing it wants me to do right now. :)

I finished The Land of Green Plums and I've started Speaking From Among the Bones, the 5th Flavia de Luce mystery. I've been under the weather and a dose of Flavia is exactly what I need right now!

I'm having a very bad month. I've abandoned two reads this month after not having done that for ages.

The Historian is beautifully written but frankly I have things I WANT to read and I really didn't much care what happened. I'm not a vamp girl, I guess.

The Sharing Knife - I love Bujold but really found this one annoying as hell. I couldn't stand 'Little Spark.'

On to The Ships of Merior and Death Warmed Over

The second one is an ER read and is quite funny. And I want to read the entire Wars of Light and Shadow series so thought I'd just start it now.

At school I started reading Ready Player One. It's full of 80s pop culture which makes me smile.

Picked When the Bough Breaks by Jonathan Kellerman off my TBR pile when I was in a hurry leaving yesterday morning and am finding it better than I expected. Not sure why my expectations were so low.

54mamzel

I loved Ready Player One and also read and loved Speaking from Among the Bones, the latest in the Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley. Another quick and fun read was Jasper Fforde's entry into the YA world, The Last Dragonslayer. The next will be Gone Girl which I just got from the public library. Still getting along with Baudolino too.

Baudolino is what I'm mainly reading, although I have Doors Open, Ian Rankin's stand-alone novel that comes between the end of Rebus and the beginning of Fox, for when my eyes are too tired to focus on the small print in my horrible mass market edition of Baudolino, and The Finkler Question on my kindle.

I'm reading A Casual Vacancy for fiction and alternating between Alone Together and Twinkie : Deconstructed for nonfiction.

I'm reading Alan Bradley's I Am Half-Sick of Shadows.

I'm finding The Million Death Quake to be very interesting and well-written for the general public. The information covered could be heavily scientific but the author has managed to keep it interesting and informative. I'm more than half-way through after only two days!

63cbl_tn

I've just started The Best Cellar. So far it's shaping up to be a fun cozy involving historical research and the Library of Congress.

I'm reading Black Flower, a historical novel based on Korean immigration to Yucatan, Mexico, during the Russo-Japanese war. I'm still listening to The Good Earth and I'm on track to finish it this week.

I watched Camelot this past week and was inspired to read The Once and Future King. I remember reading it a long time ago. The anachronisms can be quite jarring but I'm living with them now.

73DeltaQueen50
nov 26, 2012, 3:42pm

I am struggling with The Mystic Rose by Stephen Lawhead, I think it's just not the book I want to read right now, but I am bound and determined to finish it as it's the third in the triolgy and I want to be done with it.

I have also started Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell and I am enjoying this short novella a lot.

74RidgewayGirl
nov 26, 2012, 4:28pm

Ugh, that's the worst when you are reading just to finish the book. I'm doing that now with an Ian Rankin, which I never thought could happen.

Of course, really I'm reading the new Jack Reacher. But that'll be finished tonight.

I've finished Bootlegger's Daughter by Margaret Maron and started Just Desserts by Mary Daheim. I'm afraid of not making my goal over in the Books off the Shelf challenge so am trying to find quick reads for the rest of the year and I think cozies are pretty quick.
