I am currently reading "Northanger Abbey" by Jane Austen. I'm really liking this one! I love Jane Austen, but this one is gently poking fun of the novels of the day. Understated British humor... gotta love it!!!

I need to finish "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle", and "Team of Rivals" too.

I'm reading "Red Velvet Revenge" by Jenn McKinlay. One of the more enjoyable cozy mysteries I've read lately.

I've been on a reading spree lately!

I finished The Fiery Cross (thanks to whoever encouraged me to persevere by letting me know that it's the least favorite in the series - I thought it was just me). I'm looking forward to finishing up the series, but probably won't get to #6 until the early spring.

I also finished Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore- highly recommend for a fun, quick, and quirky book. The book cover even glows in the dark - check it out! lol

I just started The Fault in Our Stars last night - only a chapter in so it's hard to say. This is a young adult fiction which always makes me feel a little apprehensive, but yet I've enjoyed The Book Thief, Divergence, and Hunger Games, oh and the Potter books... all young adult.

So glad I came across the new book thread! Always curious as to what others are reading.

I'm currently reading 'Christmas Letters' by Debbie Macomber. It's a really fun read!

I'm a failure! I just can't push through Les Mis any more. The Bishop hasn't even met the main character yet and I give up. *sigh* I really wanted to read this book but I just can't!

So now I'm reading A Christmas Carol, then Old Chrismas, then a fluffy Christmas romance, and if I have time another Christmas book.

Then I'm not sure where to go next...I need to stop buying books! Too many of them and I'm feeling overwhelmed.

Nope! You are not a failure!!! That is one intense book! If you really want to try it again, may I suggest that you try the abridged version? Same story, but with all the extraneous stuff cut out. No descriptions of the abbey, or the sewers, etc. It's much more plot driven!

This is the version I'm reading. It is only 959 pages so I'm assuming it's pretty abridged.

I gave up on Les Mis as well. If I have to force myself to read it takes the joy out of it. I settled for the very abridged Spark Notes for some background before the movie!

I know it's an older book, but I'm reading The Mosquito Coast. It was a movie, also, but I've never seen it. So far, I'm pretty into it. I love really messed up characters like this!

Has anyone read Zoo by James Patterson?

I was at the library and it caught my eye. However, I have so many books on my "to read" list, I don't want to add any more unless it's worth it.

I've read one James Patterson novel before and didn't really care for it. Think it was Postcard Killers ? I could be remembering wrong. Might not have been same author...

Patterson runs hot and cold for me. Some I like, especially those where he is the sole author. I find that his series books become predictable.

So I decided not to give up on Les Mis...again. I started reading it again last night. I think I will regret NOT reading it more than I will regret reading it. I am done with school for the semester so I have more reading time now. I might also try to simultaneously read a fluff book to give me Les Mis breaks.
