I finished The Forgery of Venus (:up) and now I'm about 350 pages into A Storm of Swords. I'm catching so many things that I missed the last time I read it!
I just finished Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. My daughter really liked it, but I wasn't as enthralled. I haven't been reading much because the same daughter also got me turned on to the Showtime series, Dexter and I've watched all 5 seasons in the last month or so.
Gut, a friend loaned me Sarah's Key a while back and I thought it was okay. I described it to someone as "Maeve Binchy Does the Holocaust." I knew it would be a fast read - I read it in an afternoon - which is why I wouldn't buy it. I didn't hate it or anything, but I thought it was a little too precious, if that makes sense.
I'm glad you're enjoying Dexter! It's one of my favorite shows!
I just started The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I finished the first book (The Hunger Games) in a day. It's an easy read (since it's a teen book) but it's also really, really good. I'm hooked! I can't wait for the next book; but at the same time, I need to sleep tonight, so I will probably wait to start it.
I've recently just finished two of Jen Lancaster's books. They make me laugh out loud. I listen to them while I work and it sure did make dusting and vacuuming those client's houses much easier. My Fair Lazy is the one I just finished and since it's about reality tv watching I related to it, but reading her stuff makes me happy to know there are other people just as snarky as me. :lol
My copy of The Night Circus, along with copies of the new Van Gogh biography from Naifen and White and Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I can't wait to get to all of them.....AFTER I finish A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows AND A Dance With Dragons....so only a few thousand more pages! :lol Those books are like a roller coaster. Once you get on with book one, you can't get back off until you finish them all!
Right now, I am currently reading Stay With Me by Paul Griffin. I just picked up this book a week ago and can hardly put it down because I believe that it is that good.
I am in the middle of Columbine by Dave Cullen. I thought I knew all there was to know about the shocking school shootings of 1999, but this book revealed there was more than what we saw and read in the media. Plus a better understanding of what motivated the killers.
Book Review - 'Columbine,' by Dave Cullen - Review - NYTimes.com
I was meant to start The Night Circus next but instead I've started a book about the history of chocolate making in Britain - I think it is called The Chocolate Wars. It is written by a member of the Cadbury family. It's interesting thus far- I didn't know chocolate in the beginning was mostly drunk ( it was considered a health drink) and that all the British chocolate companies that developed in the 19th century were founded by Quakers.
