Whatcha Readin'?

So what books is everyone reading right now?
I'm currently on the third book of the Hunger Games series. So good! I'm also rereading Harry Potter, but then again, I always am.

Currently re-reading Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon, then I'll probably move on to some non-fiction

I am currently rereading The Hunger Games for the third time and dying waiting for the movie to come out!!! ( BEST BOOK SERIES IVE EVER READ) I am a huge fan of the dystopian teen novels!

I am also reading A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin, the fifth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, I cant wait for Game of Thrones to come back to television

Also on my ereader I am reading Demon Day by Penelope Fletcher, the second in a four book series ( Rae Wilder Series), its a supernatural romance, it has vampires and fairies etc

I am also awaiting the release of Endless Magic by Rachel Higginson onto the ereader store, its the 4th and final book of her series, its also a supernatural type romance series but there is lots of action and fighting as well.

Books Ive read over the last few months include:

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi, such a great book! Cant wait for the next book!
Legend by Marie Lu, it was also quite good!
Hush Hush, Cresendo, and Silence, by Becca Fitzpatrick
Leviathan, Behemoth, and Goliath by Scott Westerfield
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch
The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, and The Death Cure by James Dashner
Matched and Crossed by Allie Condie, very good books cant wait for the next one!
Divergent by Veronica Roth, also a very good book!

Other than Becca Fitzpatricks series these books are all the dystopian type novels ( like the hunger games, most of them came from a table in chapters that read " if you like the hunger games, youll love these") and they were all good reads if you like those kind of books If you cant tell I am a novel junkie!!!

The best book I have read recently, (and one of my two favorite books) is The Night Circus. An EXCELLENT book, I would totally reccommend it. If you are curious, my other favorite book is The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak.

Also, Casey, I started rereading the Warriors series yesterday!! So good. I read these books forever ago and I've missed them. It is quite a long series, I agree.

the "supposed" final warriors book comes out april 3rd 2012... i am waiting for it. i am all caught up... theres a few other super editions to come though, and the publishers are requesting a 5th series! so i do hope they continue

other than warriors....

i also read guardians of gahoole, harry potter, twilight, the silverwing series, house of night.... those are series.

individual books i read... watership down is awesome!! old, but awesome! one for sorrow; two for joy by clive woodall was a good read...

also The Fire Bringer, The Sight, and Fell were all VERY awesome books by David Clement-Davies... if you like fantasy-adventure-complicated make you think novels.... and a good LONG read, i highly suggest those. theyre animal books... The Sight and Fell are about wolves, theyre a set... Fell is a sequel to The Sight. The Fire Bringer is his first book, about deer... theyre really good, and they really make you stop and think, because they are complicated and well written... lots of hidden bits of history thrown in them too.

The only thing I'm reading right now is this thread I don't own any books as I can't put myself in the book to get into it. I get bored in a page of a book the only books I do own are budgie and poultry books.

I loved the first one, thought the second one was OK, and totally lost interest in the last one. Just finished it last week.

Currently reading the 10th installment of the Women's Murder Club by James Patterson.

I read all of the Eve Dallas by J.D. Robb, and the Stone Barrington by Stuart Woods. Also love the Myron Bolitar by Harlan Corban, and Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.

I loved the Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay What kinda ducks about mockingjay is that it's suddenly turns so dark and dreaded :/ I'm obsessed with any books to do with Greek mythology, I LOVE all the Percy Jackson series and trying to find the 2nd Heros of Olympus series book
Any reccomdations for me? I'm big into fantasy, adventure, and anything that will send chills up my spine (NOT HORROR I get too scared ) and stuff that's cute and kinda sweet and lovey dovey

Missing you always

Shivani, you may like the Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series, the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey, or anything by Marion Zimmer Bradley - I love her Avalon and 'priestess' books Another great fantasy series you bird lovers may like is The Black Gryphon (Mage Wars) series by Mercedes Lackey, it's all about gryphons!!

Have gone back to pick up a couple of books by Anne MacCaffrey
that I missed. So shocked that she passed away. I think then I'm
going back for another cycle of Lord of the Rings. Hobbit movie in
December

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile
