Just finished "What Happened to Sophie Wilder." Short, but very thought provoking. Also just finished "Shine, Shine, Shine," which definitely needs to be discussed!

Key Weird by Robert Tacoma

Am about halfway through, and it is really quirky! The main characters are Taco Bob and Carol (formerly Tula) Deriere, and set in Key West (mostly). I'm loving it, and there are at least four more books in the series. I love me some good quirk! And finding new authors -

Pippa, don't know if you've discovered Christopher Moore, but if you like quirk, you'll like him.

Just started "When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times" by Pema Chodron

So far so good. I've really been getting into this Eastern arts thing lately.

I loved that book. I find her writing style and message so soothing.

Just finished Gone Girl for my book club. This is the best book I've read in a long time. I used to be an avid reader, but haven't taken the time for a few years.

This is one that I could not put down. I stayed up until midnight to finish it 2 nights ago.

I'm about halfway through "Half Broke Horses" by Jeanette Walls. Not quite as good as "The Glass Castle" but pretty close. I'm really enjoying it.

I've read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire.

But I cannot get through The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest!! I'm about half way and I think I'm overdosed on the highly charged action and characters.

Anyone else manage to finish the trilogy?

I loved the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the movie as well as the book. I didn't read the sequels though.

I was wondering if anyone has read the Buddha in the Attic. It's gotten good reviews. I am a big Amy Tan fan and I think I might enjoy this since it seems to be along the same theme as her works. I'm thinking of picking it up soon.

I read The Girl trilogy. Then watched the Hornest's Nest (Swedish version of the movie, maybe?). Loved it all!

Love Amy Tan... she makes me laugh and cry! Although the last book before this one wasn't my favorite. Loved loved loved Kitchen God's Wife.

I just stumbled across author Susanna Kearsley. Historical fiction. OMG. I want to be her BFF!!! LOVED IT!!!

Just finished "Defending Jacob". It's about the 14-year old son of an assistant DA who is charged with murdering a classmate.

Definitely a page-turner with great plot twists. I did figure out one piece before it was revealed, but it was minor in the end. I recommend it if you like court room dramas and twisty endings.

Well, I did sit down and finish The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. I had to give it long sessions to be able to keep up with the characters and intricacies. But glad I did. Would like to see the follow up films now and see how they compare.

I followed that with an easy read - The Man Who Forgot His Wife by John Farrell. Sort of thing that would make a good afternoon TV film. Light, faintly amusing and without much depth.

Now I'm onto Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm only fifty pages in but I have to say it is the most appalling piece of writing I have read in a long time. Anyone got anything good to say to encourage me to continue to at least half way??? Most of it has made me laugh at just how bad it is. So far.

I just finished "Sister of my Heart." What a good book! The ending was a bit too neat and tidy for me but it was still really well written.

I'm now starting "Love Anthony" by Lisa Genova. I liked her other two so I have hope for it.

Little Bee by Chris Cleave
Love it and a quick read.

Also: Facing the Lion: Growing Up Maasai on the African Savanna (National Geographic). Nonfiction, quick, easy read, before you know it you're at the end!! Wonderful story!

Re another post, also loved Gone Girl but was disappointed with the ending. I usually am with most books (?!!) so it is probably more a reflection of me than the book!

Totally agree with UKGirl on the 50 Shades-I stopped at about pg 50! This was as bad as the Twilight books.

Definitely beach reading!
I have 101 books on my Kobo (Canadian version of Kindle), and what to read, what to read.....that's the big decision every couple of days!
I just finished the 12th book in the Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva -- Israeli spy/art restorer character. FABULOUS!
I love historical fiction -- books by Barbara Erskine are very well written.
I can't wait for the next Edward Rutherfurd book - Paris.
I may start Robin Cook's "Nano" next......
Oh, the decision here in Negril!

Thanks, I just picked this up from the library and am excited to start it. My mom recommended it and the wait list was so long so I hoped it was good.

I was reading Roger Williams and the Creation of the American Soul, which covers the origins of separation of church and state in North America - extremely good outline of the various arguments and the differences within Protestantism in the first half of the 17th century, and got curious about Oliver Cromwell, so I started...

Antonia Fraser's biography of Oliver Cromwell...

but then I detoured to Mantels' novels about Thomas Cromwell, even though he's no relation to Oliver...

Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel - must reads if you like historical fiction.

Endless Night by Agatha Christie. Read it years ago and it still haunts me. Gotta get back to the tried-and-true classic writers like Dame Agatha once in a while!

I downloaded Gone Girl before a camping trip. Big mistake, as I couldn't wait to get the Kindle back in my hands! Ending - very, very odd. . .

Fifty Shades - the story picks up and it really is no more than a "beach read" so take it with a grain of salt (and skim faster). It is also a trilogy, so don't judge by just the first book.

eta: Thanks, Skye, for the recommendation!
