The Library at Night
Red Mist ( not so sure, maybe)
Sherlock Holmes, The Complete
The Talented Mr. Ripley
A Feast for Crows

Crops and Robbers, which out to be some nice fluff in between the good stuff.

Dust and Decay

Hopefully these will finish out the year. I really want to keep Dust & Decay for next years group challenge for Book Addicts, but we shall see. I already have A Wrinkle in Time sitting next to me to start reading in a little bit..

Once I'm FINALLY done with my re-reads of The Tommyknockers and Bisingr, I'll be reading Inheritance. I cannot wait to find out how the series ends.. I just hope it isn't as slow and tedious as the previous two books.

Janie Johnson Too many to mention! LOL I know I want to read Christine and From a Buick 8. Plus all my upcoming buddy reads.

From a Buick 8 was pretty darned good; and christine is a classic. Much better than the film adaptation.

same here, Dustin. It started off with such promise, then seemed to go ...*thud*...

Janie Johnson Alondra I never read Christine, can you believe that? I just watched the movie. So I wanna read it. I just bought the book too.

Alondra Janie wrote: "Alondra I never read Christine, can you believe that? I just watched the movie. So I wanna read it. I just bought the book too."

good, the book is scarier, because 'she' is so evil. creepiest part is actually going to buy her and the old man telling his story. creepier than the movie; you imagination just takes over at that point...


message 12: by Char (new)

Char I agree re: Christine. The book was much scarier!

I'm about to do a re-read of F. Paul Wilson's The Keep with my horror group.
I'm dying for the final Turtle Boy book called Nemesis: The Death of Timmy Quinn to be released.
I'm also quite psyched about an Indy author that just signed with Darkfuse and his new book coming out next month called: The Hoard by Alan Ryker.

Hi, Alondra!

So I know that you've gotten through books I-III of the Inheritance Cycle, but have you attempted the final installment? I'm just wondering..

no; it has been staring at me from the shelf for the past year... i want to , but feel like i need to re-read the series first. Dustin, have you started reading it yet? If so, do i need to reread the series... ?


message 16: by J.S. (new)

J.S. Bailey (JSBailey) | 219 comments On my "to-read" list:

Arson by Estevan Vega

Alondra- I'm not sure if it's wholly necessary to re-read them, but I've found it very helpful. I'd forgotten many details, both small and significant, so I'm certanly glad I didn't just plunge into the last book.
I haven't started Inheritance yet, but I'm really hoping to finish Brisingr relatively soon. I'll be sure to let you know.:)

Thanx, Dustin. I think I will reread. Next year a reread of a few series. The DT series with the SK group; Inheritance series so I can read the last book and to read 2 in the GoT series... phew.

No, I haven't. Fall of Giants seems really interesting so I just had to buy it. I have apsolutely no idea when I'll get to it, though.

Yes, Fall of Giants does indeed sound interesting, especially now that book #2 is out on HC.
The only book of Follett's that I've read is The Pillars of the Earth, which I highly recommend. There's also a sequel, World Without End.

Hideaway is pretty good, nothing like some Koontz for fall. Monster Island was okay; nice take on Zombies.


message 29: by Kathy (new)

Kathy (bookgoddess1969) Thanks, Alondra. I love zombies! :)

Great suggestions, everyone! Keep them coming, please!


message 31: by Alondra (new)

Alondra Kathy wrote: "Thanks, Alondra. I love zombies! :)"

I actually just started reading books on Zombies. I must say that World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War is one of the best; but Rot & Ruin is the best. I will start Dust and Decay for the new year :D


message 32: by Kathy (new)

Kathy (bookgoddess1969) I have been wanting to read Rot & Ruin. I had read a short story by Maberry that came before it and loved it!

I really enjoyed Incarceron! I haven't read the sequel yet, though.


message 39: by Courtney (new)

Courtney | 18 comments @ Holly and Dustin: Fall of Giants is absolutely fantastic. It's as good as Pillars and World Without End.
I absolutely can't wait to read Winter of the World (sequel to FoG), but I have so many unread books on my shelf right now that I may have to wait and ask for it for Christmas :)


message 40: by Courtney (new)

Courtney | 18 comments I'm currently re-reading It in the spirit of Halloween. After that, I don't know - I have so many to choose from! In the last couple of months I've acquired:
Rosemary's Baby
Apartment 16
20th Century Ghosts
The Colorado Kid
Others
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
The Shadow of the Wind
Dune

Those are just my recent acquisitions, and doesn't include the dusties that have been up there for 6 months or more, ha ha.


message 41: by Tammy (new)

Tammy Nelson (Tammy1133) | 11 comments Im inbeween books right now. Can anyone recommend a good series to get into? I liked the Mortal Instruments, and anything J. R. Ward and the Fallen series.

Alondra Tammy wrote: "Im inbeween books right now. Can anyone recommend a good series to get into? I liked the Mortal Instruments, and anything J. R. Ward and the Fallen series."

of course, Hunger Games; Divergent; Game of Thrones series which is excellent. For more somber and/or violent faire; The border trilogy by Cormac McCarthy. For epic fantasy; The Lord of the Rings including the hobbit. My daughter is liking the Sookie Stackhouse series.. that is about 14 books, i think. The Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamilton, for vamp hunters.

For the most part, I really enjoyed The Pillars of The Earth a LOT. And someday I plan on reading World Without End.

Fall of Giants sounds good, too.

message 50: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 60 comments What to red next? I have enough problems keeping up with what to read now. I'm currently reading Fall of Giants and Edge of Dark Water. I picked up The Leopard last night since I left home with out a book and it will be one of my next books. My to be read pile is in danger of toppling, my Kindle is bursting at the seams and I keep buying or borrowing more!
