I'm reading A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore at the moment. First of his books I've read. Pretty good so far.
I usually read mostly humorous fantasy, but in May I read a few books I wouldn't normally read and discovered some I really liked.
Dress Shop of Dreams by Mena Van Praag
First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer
The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
Plus a couple of Richard Laymon books I re-read that I haven't read for about 10 years.
I've got almost 60 books lined up on my bookshelf to read at the moment I should probably stop buying books......no....never!

I finally finally got around to reading my first book since DS was born, only 6 months ago!
I took some recommendations here and read Burial Rites which is not normally something I would choose and I was hooked. I thought it was a real page turner, obviously not the happiest of stories but I did enjoy the read.
Also I borrowed the book from the library and it has been forever since I read an actual hard copy book and I found it more enjoyable than an ebook. I think it's the physical part of turning a page that is the whole part of really reading and I never feel as satisfied when reading an ebook. Anyone else find this?

@French Pear, yes, I love the smell of new books (and even old musty ones from the library) but the feel of the paper and also reading and feeling like you're progressing because you can look at where your bookmark is and appreciate where you're at, whether it be halfway, near the end, whatever. Although not so much when it's a really good book and you've only got a few pages left but you don't want the story to end.
During our move my husband said I should buy a Kindle and start buying eBooks instead, because moving all of these was an epic chore. Three days post-move and they're still in boxes... But I don't want to give up physical books. I just can't get into the Kindle. I get that it's practical but I like old-school reading.

Cool thread! I'm just starting the Sookie Stackhouse books and really like the first book so far (please no spoulers?!) I also recently read The Rosie Project which I really enjoyed!

I might jump in here...
Best book I've read this year - and for several years - is The Secret History by Donna Tartt (author of The Goldfinch).
Everything I Never Told You was great.
Also read Missoula by Jon Krakeur - it's about college rape in America and how it's dealt with.
I'm currently reading We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves.
I'll add more when I think of them or start them!
