This is the spot where you can list what you are reading right now and you can tell your thoughts about the book thus far.

I am reading The Beast of Noor by Janet Lee Carey.

To be honest, I am finding it kind of boring.

Lyndsay Erin | 99 comments I'm reading Wicked Ties by Shayla Black right now. It's a cheesy romance, so it really has no depth, but I'm entertained, lol. Sadly I don't have a W in my name, lol.

It was pretty good! It flowed for most of the book, nothing too too exciting but there are TWO parts where I was like WTF!!!! Didn't see that coming!

Melissa Ward I'm currently reading Catch-22 (obvi!) and also Cross by James Patterson, the 12th book in the Alex Cross Series.

Melissa Ward Just finished The Giver by Lois Lowry. AMAZING book! I read it in teacher's college for a children's lit course and remembered loving it. A MUST read for all of you!

I am really excited to dive into this next book, Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson. It's a series of books actually, it's called the Undead series. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/42...

Goodreads recommended it to me because I liked the Sookie books. I have a feeling they are going to be similar to one another, with a dash of Shopaholic thrown in, and that's alright with me :)

That's funny - I didn't like those books - but I couldn't get enough of Sookie ....

Thats not true, I just lied ... I didn't love those books is what I should have said ... they were fine - lol


message 15: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Ward After looking at what I have left to complete for the November challenge (yes, the lame one) I'm going to put Undead on the shelf for a bit and read A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer. Have any of you read it?


message 16: by Lyndsay (new)

Lyndsay Erin | 99 comments I go through phases oh not wanting to read too.

Melissa Ward A Child Called It was ridiculous! It was like torture porn! I've heard that it was all fabricated and never actually happened to the author. Regardless I understand that this kind of abuse does happen but the way the story was told didn't really resonate with me. I didn't get attached to the main character the way I was hoping. It was basically just page after page of abuse, no real story.

I am now reading Nights in Rodanthe to try and complete the "lame November challenge". I really enjoyed the movie but was very upset by the ending. Too sad for my liking :) We'll see if the book ends any better.

I predict that it won't. Nicholas Sparks is brutal.


message 22: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Ward I like his books! But yes, they do have a tendency to end brutally ;)


message 23: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Ward I just finished Nights in Rodanthe. It was good. Ended the same way though :( Now I'm reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. It's a long read but I'm loving it!


message 24: by Lyndsay (new)

Lyndsay Erin | 99 comments I finished Night Road last night, it was really predictable, not that it was bad, but I saw the ending coming a mile away, stil heart breaking though. I'm now going to start Casual Vacancy, and at school I'm reading Insurgent and Hunger Games (with the kids)

I am still reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I checked last night - I have been reading it for 7 hours and I am only 52% done. This is one long ass book.


message 26: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Ward Still reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (I"m loving it but can only read it in small chunks)but just finished A Christmas Carol and moving on to In God We Trust.
