    Default What are you reading at the moment?

    I'm a total bookworm and always on the hunt for a new book. So I thought is start a thread to see what everyone else is reading.
    Write the name and author and a brief summary.

    I'm reading Jodi Picoults, "the storyteller" If anyone's a Jodi fan, it's a bit different to her usual stuff, it's essentially about the holocaust. It's heart wrenching and upsetting but very good. I've cried three times whilst reading it and the other night i was reading in bed I had to go and give my kids a hug after reading a section of it.

    What do you all have your noses buried in?

    I love non fiction...biographies and crime. I'm reading Blackbird by Jennifer Lauck atm. It's about a little girl who had to grow up too fast, taking care if her sick mother.

    I love Jodi Picoult. I have quite a few of her books. I also love Patricia Cornwell, PD James, Bryce Courtenay, Jeffery Archer to name a few. I tend to like reading "chick lit" books as they're easy to read and you don't have to invest a lot of time or brain power into them. I've part started "The Casual Vacancy" by JK Rowling but I just can't get into it like I did Harry Potter. Trouble is I can't start a new book until I finish that one, but I feel like I'll have to start it again because I can't remember what I've read so far.

    I also revert back to favourites from my childhood every now and then too such as:
    February Dragon
    Secret Garden
    A Little Princess
    Railway Children

    I used to read so much more than I do now. I blame the full time shift work for that :-(

    This is why you should live near me. Tamora Pierce rocks.

    Also, re-reading the Terrier trilogy by said Tamora Pierce, The First Man In Rome series by Colleen Mccullough and The Rangers Apprentice series, can't remember the author.

    The patrick bowers files by stephen james. They are amazing books. I hardly ever read books because they dont 'draw me in' in the first few pages but his thrillers are AMAZEBOOKS (lol)

    I think you'd like Rangers Apprentice if you like TP. They're pretty basic, he wrote them to get his 12 year old into reading, but I find them enjoyble for light/wind down reading.
