April (apriltara) | 63 comments The Bone Season and Gripped: Your Personality is What's Holding You Back (That second one sounds like a self-help book but it's actually sort of a social media satire.)

Hey, you joined! Did you finish 'Gripped'? I'm still near the beginning but so far I like it.

Born of Night (The League, #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon


message 10: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (jjallday) I'm playing catch up with Life of Pi for another club and trying to get a head start on The Bone Season with a little Charles Bukowski in the middle.


message 11: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Life of Pi changed my life back in 10th grade. It was definitely a jump start to make me get back into reading novels outside of required reading.

I just recently saw the movie and as much as I dislike reading the book after already seeing the movie I think it's worth it. The movie alone really stirred up some thoughts and feelings so I'm excited to see what the book as in store for me.

Indeed. I'll never get bored that way ;)


message 18: by Melissa (new)

Melissa I loved Kushiel's Dart. I read that for the Vaginal Fantasy group and really enjoyed the Hangout and discussions done over there. I want to read the next couple in the series, but haven't been able to get to them. I will say that I absolutely despised the beginning of the book because it moved slow and I didn't like the situations the kids were put in.

At moment I am trying to finish up Year of Wonders so I can get to reading something I like better.

I'm trying to pace myself but have a lot on my shelf right now.

Currently, trying to finish The Theory of Everything by Kari Luna .

Then, on to Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell for our October group read.

Next, hope to steam roll through Highlander Betrayed (Guardians of the Targe, #1) by Laurin Wittig , Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford , Bankrupting Physics How Today's Top Scientists are Gambling Away Their Credibility by Alexander Unzicker & Growth (Isle of the Four Kingdoms, #6) by B.A. Beers (all of which were winnings from GR).

Jolene (jolene_wsm) | 19 comments How.... do u find the time to read... i am so jealous.. I am still stuck with The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, #1) by Carlos Ruiz Zafón and The Psychopath Test A Journey Through the Madness Industry by Jon Ronson and A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3) by George R.R. Martin :(

There are a lot of people who I am in awe of, for the reading time they find; for me reading is study breaks and the occasional tram ride.

I'm currently finishing Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters , and reading The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1) by Samantha Shannon + Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning + trying to bring myself to keep going with Warrior (The Blades of the Rose, #1) by Zoe Archer . Also, On Resilience by Elisabeth Wynhausen is on the cards

I have read Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Northanger Abbey. I didn't like Persuasion, so I couldn't finish it (a lot of people seem to like it). Have you read any other Jane Austen book's?


message 30: by Melissa (new)

Melissa I also loved A Fault in our Stars. It actually made me become really connected to the characters in a way that I haven't connected with books in a long while.

I remember thinking how awesome it would be if they made it into a movie....and then I heard they were making it into a movie. I sort of "fangirled" all over it hahaha.

Ahhh you didn't know?? I was sceptical about it too but the way John Green has been gushing about it makes me think it will be fine. But then again you never know with these books being turned into movies thing. It's all about luck, I think?

I'm about a third of the way into Pride and Prejudice. I really like it. Which I admit might just be because the writing style is more like what I had in my head that Austen's books would be like. At the moment my plan is to read each of her books during the year of their 200th anniversary. So Mansfield Park next year then Emma and so on.

I saw the ad for that one & read the description but didn't shelve it. So, it's good?


message 44: by Kayla (new)

Kayla Beck Kalnasy (kaylabeck) | 33 comments It's not something that I normally read, and I'm enjoying it a lot. I'll read a mystery once or twice a year MAYBE.

It teaches a lot (well, for me it's a lot) about Singapore, and Aunty Lee is a great character. Plus, little to no gore (so far) is always a plus. Well, in mysteries anyway. I take gore in sci-fi/fantasy and horror. :-)

I haven't read it in a very long time. I probably haven't re-read it as I pretty much agree with you. Sometimes reading the classics is hard work!

The plot and the character's just aren't clicking for me while the other's did (with the exception of Persuasion, which I didn't seem to like so much either, and Mayfield Park which I haven't read yet.) Gah! Really struggling to find a new book to read. I am also in the middle of reading a weekend with Mr.Darcy but it's getting a bit too predictable for my taste. I went to see if I could find fangirl but they were out of stock!

Any suggestions for books?

I think an easy quick read. Something romantic?
