I am trying to decide which of my many tbr books I will read after I finish my current one. I am have to read "In the Time of Butterflies" for a bookclub in a couple of weeks but I may try to squeeze another book in before that.

Julianne | 7 comments I am currently reading Peony in Love by Lisa See. I really enjoyed her other book, Snow Flower & The Secret Fan. Next on my list is the new book by Alice Sebold. I don't even know the name...but I know I want to read it as I really enjoyed The Lovely Bones and Lucky.

Dina | 21 comments I am currently trying to get through a biography about Teddy Roosevelt. It's not about his presidency, but about his adventures after his defeat to get re-elected president.

Next up will be something given to me as a Christmas gift I'm sure. I've asked for Water for Elephants, the new Patricia Cornwell book and anything from Kathy Reichs.

Ellie Malloy  | 2 comments Next up for me, I think is "The Devil in the White City" ... looks great but I think I need to be in a historical mood.

Dina | 21 comments Has anyone heard of or read "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"? Today on cnn.com there is an article on a kid who had a brain stem stroke and is "trapped in his brain". The guy who wrote the book also had this and he wrote a book using 1 eye to communicate spelling the words to the editor! It caught my eye. The reviews seem good in that it's not a tear jerker or feel-sad for me book, but kind of funny and about his life before.

Clare | 21 comments I am loving books by James Lee Burke right now. I am reading two and just finished one. I don't know how I got this far in life without having ever picked up one of his books. For a glimpse of the underside of life in New Orleans with quirky, interesting characters, these books are the best.

I am currently trudging through "The Little Friend" by Donna Tartt and will hopefully finish it up this weekend. Then, it is onto something much more light-hearted: "Goddess for Hire" by Sonia Singh.
