    I read several of the "Prey" and liked them but I'm taking a break to read other things.

    Most recently I finished Between a Heart and a Rock Place by Pat Benatar. It is her memoir and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to read a memoir from that era that didn't include tearing up hotel rooms, drug overdoses, hundreds of sexual encounters and bankruptcy.

    Mickey Rourke: Wrestling with Demons was a good read but much darker than the Benatar book. An insightful book into one of the Hollywood "bad boys".

    I agree, racrgal, it's time for a "Prey" break.
    I finished Kay Hooper's "The Last Prophet." Don't think it's up my alley... all about psychics.
    Now I'm starting a new author for me: John Gilstrap's "Hostage Zero." So far, so good.

    I am currently reading historical fiction..."The Other Boleyn Girl", The Boleyn Inheritance", "The Lady Elizabeth". "The Constant Princess". I am about to start "The Queen's Lady". I found a huge selection at a thrift store that sells books 8 for $1.50. I pass them on to my daughter-in-law and she passes them around to her circle of friends. Has anyone bought books from Thriftbooks.com? Their prices are good and shipping is free.

    Finished The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint and thought: "Er. Ok." Something about it left me a bit lukewarm. Now reading The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence.

    Do check out http://www.bookcrossing.com/! icon_smile.gif Finding books released in the wild is such a thrill!

    I really enjoyed "The Seasons on Henry's Farm" by Terra Brockman. This follows the author's brother and family for an entire year, as he farms the family farm practicing sustainable agriculture. The whole extended family is involved. There are some recipes thrown in, but the real draw is the rhythm of life on the modern family farm.

    Another interesting one is ""Harvesting Ashwood, Minnesota 2037" by Cynthia Kraack. This is set in a future America, where the government takes over people's lives after a massive economic meltdown. The economy is starting to recovery, but there is still a great deal of governmental oversight. Good character development, interesting story line, a little bit chilling.....

    I am currently reading Shadow Thieves. It is a fairly quick read. I haven't quite figured out the genre or what exactly is happening but it isn't too demanding of a book so it is fine. It might be a cross between young adult, fantasy and maybe some science fiction. Good for lazy summer days (not sure exactly what those are but I'm trying! icon_biggrin.gif )

    Huh - turned out Edgar Mint and Alex Woods were both books about young, unusual men who had sustained a head injury as a child (run over by a car/hit by a meteorite) which in turn determined things to come. icon_smile.gif I preferred Alex Woods! Now reading Marian Keyes - am on holiday!

    Hello All, the books I've read since last posting, and the ones I would recommend are:

    icon_arrow.gif Blood of Dragons by Robin Hobb (fantasy fiction series)
    icon_arrow.gif Six Years by Harlan Coben (mystery/thriller)
    icon_arrow.gif The End of Wasp Season by Denise Mina (human interest)
    icon_arrow.gif The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill (British murder
    mystery series). As well as the next books in the same series
    icon_arrow.gif When Gods Die by C.S. Harris (British historical
    mystery series)
    icon_arrow.gif Rush Home Road by Lori Lansens
    icon_arrow.gif And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini (my least
    favorite of the three but still good)
    icon_arrow.gif The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch (can't say which
    genre this would fit into but it was good, part of a series)
    icon_arrow.gif The Kindness of Strangers by Katrina Kittle (human interest)
    icon_arrow.gif The Kill Room by Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme forensic
    crime series)
    icon_arrow.gif The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer (fiction, Holocaust)
    icon_arrow.gif Happy Accidents by Jane Lynch (autobiography)

    Some were decent but not noteworthy (so I won't mention them here).

    Those I either didn't like or didn't bother to finish:

    The Observations by Jane Harris (too weird)
    Gillespie and Me by Jane Harris (too boring)
    Sweetness in the Belly by Camilla Gibb (too political)
    Dissolution by C.J. Sansom (too boring, didn't finish)
    Noah's Compass by Anne Tyler (too boring)
    Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire (fantasy fiction, no
    storyline...just the main character getting attacked over and over
    again)
    Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes (boring, didn't finish)
    The Crossing Place by Elly Griffiths (boring, didn't finish)
    The Dark Lantern by Gerri Brightwell (started out well but didn't like
    story)

    I've also given up on the Ian Rutledge series by Charles Todd (after having read three more books in the series...I gave it a good, college try).

    I read Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. I really liked the premise but I often got confused. She'd start a new chapter and I'd have to skim down to realize who she was speaking about.

    With Goodreads (thank you to whomever set us onto that particular path!) and FictFact, I've got a gazillion books that I'm anxious to read, 17 are on hold at my library and 4 are on my end table waiting for me. icon_biggrin.gif

    If you like historical non fiction, I just finished The Black Count about the black General Dumas who was the father to author who wrote the Count of Monte Cristo. Eye opener to French openess to blacks. Currently, am reading The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng so far can barely set it down. Love the setting--Malaysia.


    Hi WiGal....thanks for the recommendation...I've put The Garden of Evening Mists on hold at the library.

    Hubby is reading Masters of the Mountain about Thomas Jefferson and for him is reading it very fast. Can't wait for him to be done but hate leap frog reading with him so will wait.

    I'm still on the "Prey" series by John Sandford. Right now it's "Storm Prey." I guess I'm hooked on the series and I have to finish it since I've read them in chronological order. icon_wink.gif

    I've finished reading Miss Chopsticks by Xinran. It's a gentle read about Chinese culture (no where near the scope and depth of the books written by Lisa See). Three sisters go to the big city to try to earn a living and hopefully, to bring some money back to their impoverished village. The title refers to the designation given to all girls because they are seen as fragile and insignificant. Boys, on the other hand, are referred to as roof beams.

    I've also read the next book in the Simon Serrallier series by Susan Hill, The Shadows in the Street, a murder mystery set in Britain (you'd think I'd get tired of this genre...not so much!). While reading the previous book in this series, two of the main characters were flying to Australia to live and work (as doctors) for 6 months. Chris, the husband, bought his wife, Cat, a book based on it's length (1024 pages) so it would last the trip. I looked it up on the B&N site...and put it on hold at my library. icon_biggrin.gif. It's a FF novel titled Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke.

    I'm currently reading the first book in a new series written by one of my favorite authors, Juliet Marillier. It's a Young Adult series but I thought I would give it a go because the author is JM. This first book is called Shadowfell She has three other series written for adults (all FF). I've read and enjoyed all of them and thankfully, one of them is still ongoing.
