What's everyone reading?


Recommended Posts

Right now I'm reading:

 

*Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl 

*The Red Tent by Anita Diamant 

*Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery

 

The Red Tent was one of those books I always saw in the store but never bought until last year. And wow. It was incredible. I also really like the idea of taking a story from the Bible that's really kind of glossed over and expanding it. The attention to detail was incredible, from their food to how they lived. Awesome book. Enjoy!

I haven't found a new book in a few months.  I will have to look into a few of the ones posted here.  I am currently re-reading The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear.

WoT is a favorite.  I had a tradition of re-reading the series when the new books came out, starting with The Shadow Rising.

Yes, I'm really enjoying it! It was recommended to me by someone I met in Doula training, and I'm glad I picked it up

I picked up the First Law trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. I read his book Heroes and when I saw this trilogy on sale in a local bookstore I just had to pick it up. Abrecrombie writes deep and intriguing low fantasy. Or is it grimdark? No idea, but I love it.

Just finished: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. Holy fuck, that book was awesome. And also lit a fire to delve into islam, afghanistan history, hijabs, burqas, etc.

 

Currently reading: The Hobbitt!! I saw the first movie. Read the book in 7th grade. Now I'm reading it again before the next movie comes out!

 

To read: Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone. Another re-read, just because I watched the movies recently and forgot how awesome they are. And forgot how many details I missed.

Also to read: And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. I might as well read all his books because I loved The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. But it wasn't at the library last night :(

Just finished Sugar Nation by Jeff O'Connell - scary that instead of trying to head off diabetes with appropriate diet and exercise, the ADA and medical establishment keep pushing the high carb diet along with drugs. In reference to exercise, I loved the line that people should have a doctor's permission NOT to exercise.

 

Listening to Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss - how the food industry has made processed food super convenient and super unhealthy. Based on other reading, I think this author underplays the severe health consequences of sugar in the diet in terms of heart disease related to insulin resistance and overstates the impact of saturated fat. Nonetheless, processed food has become a nasty prospect and it is worrisome that so many in the world rely upon it as a source of cheap food.

How are you liking Shadow of Night?  I loved the first book, A Discovery of Witches, but was less in love with Shadow.  I am still really looking forward to the third book to find out what happens.

I think that the reading is slower. the first book had more ''scientific inside'' with genetic and all, the second one is more ''historic'' the pace is a lot different I haven't finished it yet so may be the last few chapiters will have some action, but so far I have liked the first one a lot more. But biology and genetic are a lot more interresting to me than history.

I've just finished The Pearl (by John Steinbeck). I didn't enjoy the style, but I like the argument. Or the conclusions that one could extract of the plot.
