I'm currently on the second book of A song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R Martin. It's lengthy, but oh so good. I'm really enjoying it

I'm reading scorched by Mari Mancussi. I think it's how you pronounce her name. It's good so far but I really struggle to read as I have other novels to finish as well. Scorched is a dragon novel, love its cover. So beautiful

I haven't started with that series yet but I heard it's amazing. They are making a movie about it if I'm not mistaken, or in the verge of making one. Maybe we should start reading the entire series and discuss this.

Oh wow... if they are making a movie out of this series it could either be really good or a big flop. There's a lot of things that could possibly not translate well on the big screen. That and they fact that a lot of CGI will have to be used on almost all of the characters to create wings, horns, etc.
And yea, that's a great idea!

Kathy Horsman (kathywithak27) | 6 comments That's my problem with making a movie out of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, all those demon characters are either going to be make up or CGI and I can't imagine how much work they'd have to do to make it be awesome....

I'm currently reading The Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and Splintered (Splintered, #1) by A.G. Howard

I think we all have that problem when books get turned into movies, however, we sometimes get a lot of surprises. IF they can do avatar, I'm sure they can do anything out there. I think it depends on the amount of money they are going to spend on it.
It makes all the difference in the world if they have a big budget. I would love to read this series though. How is the Night Huntress series.

C. Cales (scarybob) | 7 comments I have an imagination that is, at times, very annoying. It's difficult for me to read in peace. It looks over my shoulder and whispers in my ear.
"I would have said that differently," and then explains. Because of that I tend to be very selective about what I read.

I was perusing the Kindle bookstore looking for something. I stumbled over Ghost Story Ghost Story [book:Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. I'd never heard of Jim Butcher, but it looked interesting. He introduced me to the wizard Harry Dresden and I realized my discovery was about the tenth of a series. After Ghost Story I went to the beginning of the series, Storm Front. Then I was on to Fool Moon. I've almost finished Grave Peril and I haven't had this much fun since Anne Rice introduced me to the Vampire Lestat.

Thanks for that ScaryBob. I'm glad you are having a blast. It's what I love about books. If it's good enough to hook someone, it's good enough to publish it. That's my motto. hahahaha. I'll look into his novels. I love Anne Rice and Lestat. Did you know she created him after her husband. I think it's awesome. She's bringing out the last vampire Lestat book, don't know if it's out yet, but there is one coming. Can't wait.

I just started reading A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R.R. Martin today and I'm also reading Bridge of Birds A Novel of an Ancient China That Never Was (The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox, #1) by Barry Hughart . Have a buddy read starting the 23rd of The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty .


message 19: by Mollydee (new)

Mollydee | 33 comments I am reading a few books. "Notes From Underground" which is an anthology by various authors. I got the book from the author. I was so excited. I won a book by her and loved it and we started talking so she sent me two more books and this was one. That author is Judy Croome and I loved her book "Weight Of A Feather" which is a collection of short stories. I love short stories. I am three stories in and it is very good.

I am also reading for a tour group a book called "Memoirs Aren't Fairly Tales - A Story of Addiction" by Marni Mann. A lot of drug use so far. But what else would I expect. I am waiting for the story. I am only about 10 percent in.

I read about this book back in January and was happy to get an arc. I am also reading "How To Get Skinny, Famous, and Fall Madly In Love" by Ken Baker. It is more for high school reading but it is so darn funny I cannot stop reading it. I am about a third in and it is a laugh riot.

I also just started a buddy read of "The Escort Next Door" by Clara James. I am 32 percent in. It is a short book but someone in group asked if anyone wanted to read it and although erotica is not my favorite category I will read it if suggested. So far it is not bad. Plus I have someone to read it with.

I have started a bunch of books that I just did not get into but I will. I have stacks like I am sure you all do. And I do my best not to get too many free Kindle books. I have to really want them.

How do you make the books so small? I would like to post the covers on to be clickable.

So that is what I am reading.


message 20: by Morné (new)

Morné | 2 comments Read 'The children of Hurin' about two weeks ago, not sure if that counts. Written more in a poetic Beowulf sort of style, and rather dark and filled with sorrow.

On another note, I read the comment just above this. If you like short stories, I recently put an ebook online with 3 short stories. They are all sort of surreal in a way. Not sure how many people are into that sort of thing. I've been have issues with the price though. Was free, but then many of the online shops charged tax, so I upped the price, not wanting to make no money while these big corporate giants make money from my stuff, and now they charging even more. Rather irritating. It's called Tri-fiction.

I have heard a lot from authors about the pricing. I have a lot of friends that are authors so I feel bad for you. I would love to read your book. I can see how much it is. I do not have monty until I get paid on the third but short stories are my thing so I would love to read your book. Thanks for the message!

Chris Longmuir (chrislongmuir) | 10 comments I have just finished reading Monday Mourning by Kathy Reichs. It was quite good, although she does get technical in bits. Now, I'm going to have to start reading nonfiction around the domestic situation during the First World War as part of my research for my next novel.

I also have alligent the last in the divergent series to finish. I am about 25/30% read mark. I just can't seem to get into it and not enjoying it so taking a break.

I just finished Divergent, yes I know I'm so behind, hahahaha. It's not a bad book, actually I'm not a dystophian fan, that is Carlyle's department. I do however loved Divergent more than I loved Hunger games.

I'm also reading Scorched by Mari Manuccusi, Hope I spelled her name right. It's about dragons, which I'm a huge fan off, and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. It's something different.

I wan't to start with VA. Hahahaha, another late bloomer for me. Watch the movie thought it was great, and then I have Delsheree Gladden's novels, which I'm also reading a bit off everyday. A lot of novels, I know. I'll die if I can't read
