    I didn't expect to like it because I loved the Harry Potter books, but I was pleasantly surprised. It did take me a while to get in to it though.

    As for me, I bought Stephen King's newie: Doctor Sleep. Very much looking forward to the end of this semester so I can start reading it.

    I've started reading Tess Gerritsen's books recommended by a BHer, loving them so far. Would love to read more Jodi Picoult but they're really popular at my local library and have a long waiting list. It took me too long to get into The casual vacancy so I returned it.

    I just finished book 4 of the Game of Thrones series...love loving it.

    Have started re-reading The Red Tent by Anita Diamant (I read it when it first came out, years ago). I am remembering how much I enjoyed it, definitely recommend it!

    I'm a bit of a book hoarder and I buy them. Something about a book shelf full of books makes me happy.
    You can get then pretty cheaply from secondhand book stores

    DH always says to me, why don't you just get ebooks or one of these ereader things. I was horrified! I love holding a book.

    Finished the story teller last night. Surpringsingly I sort of guessed the ending which is unusual as her books usually have a twist that you never see coming .

    I just finished 'the house of memories' by Monica McInerney. Really enjoyed it. It's about a woman's (and subsequently her families) journey after a terrible tragedy.

    Definitely recommend it.

    I prefer books to ebooks too. Our house is very cluttered at the moment and DS pulls everything off the shelves so I think i'll stick to borrowing for a long time Plus i'm always worried what if you buy a book and you don't really like it. I have a friend who borrows library books, only if there's one she really likes she'll buy one for her home library.

    Currently ready the Song of the Lioness books by Tamora Pearce to my DP :-)

    i love the songs of the lioness books!!

    I am currently reading Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts. My favourite authors are Stephen king and Paullina Simons. The Bronze Horseman (and its two sequels) by Paulliba Simons are fantastic books - romantic drama set in Russia in WWII .
