About to start Armada by Ernest Cline. My boyfriend got his first book, Ready Player One, in a subscription box for geeks (Loot Crate). Cline's books are written with a very heavy dose of 80s sci-fi nostalgia. It'll be a quick, fun read.

I just finished the Harry Potter series (I think this was my 5th complete read-through).

I'm reading "The Red Temple" by Rick Riordan. I ADORED both of his other series--Percy Jackson and The Olympians and the The Heroes of Olympus series.

I'm halfway done with Gone Girl. I made the mistake (?) of watching the movie before I read the book. I should just finish it.
I'm also half done with "Inside of a dog", which is a fascinating book (if you like dogs), but I don't usually read non-fiction, so it's a bit of a chore for me, even though I DO like dogs. :)

I picked up "Girl on a train" while I was in Canada. It was an impulse buy, but I'm looking forward to reading it, after I finish the other books I'm reading. ;)

Finished reading Summer at Shell Cottage by Lucy Diamond and I really enjoyed it so I will be reading more books by this author. I started reading The Third Wife by Lisa Jewell, so far it has me keen to continue as I am not quite sure what is going to happen.

In bed I am reading the The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society which is written in letter form and I am enjoying it so far, not progressing as quickly as I would like but I am generally quite tired so manage a few pages each evening. Once I am done with this I intend to read To Kill a Mockingbird - hard to believe but I am one of the few that have not read it. I was in the O level stream at school and only CSE got to read it as part of English Literature. I am hoping it lives up to my expectations as I have many friends who rate it amongst their favourite books.

I read The Husband's Secret. I thought the premise was good and at times it was well written but overall it fell flat. Friends have said that she has written other books that are good.

Besides reading "Bossypants," I'm also reading "When the Eagle Screams." Both very interesting. When the Eagle Screams is deeply disturbing. How much was known and how arrogant we may have been as a country. Only 30% though it and is an eye opener reguardless if you thought that you read it all in the paper.

Just finished reading We Are All Made of Stars by Rowan Coleman - it was a good read but did take me some time to get into the format of the book and it was not as good as her previous novel The Memory Book (The Day We Met in the US) which had me sobbing on more than one occasion.

Today I am starting on Summer at Shell Cottage by Lucy Diamond - she is a new author to me. So we shall see what I think.

I am Malala by Malala Yousafzei. A powerful book written by the girl who was shot (when she was 15 years old) by the Pakistani Taliban because she was advocating for education for girls. I am enjoying reading about her life trying to be a relatively normal teenager as religious extremism and violent civil war and unrest invade her previously beautiful quiet valley. I also appreciated learning a bit more about an Islamic culture that was going through turmoil. She is very open about both the corruption and inefficiency of the government, and the impact of the Taliban (both good -- when they stepped in to do earthquake relief and medical treatment; and bad -- intolerance and beheadings and lashings ...)

4 stars (I think the voice of the co-author/reporter sometimes gets in the way of Malala's story -- so I would rate it 5 for Malala and 3.5 for the co-author; who probably also didn't have the easiest job!)

Think "feminist Fight Club."

It's even better than I expected it to be, and it's really interesting to read while also trying to make substantial healthy changes to my lifestyle. I'm not done with it yet, but I'd highly recommend it, especially coming off of The Handmaid's Tale.

I started reading The Book of You by Claire Kendal on my Kindle last night in bed. Managed to get my 30 minutes in for the Team Goal and read 13% of the book. So far it is good, not quite sure how it is going to pan out but has me intrigued enough to continue with it.

Reading In the Kingdom of Ice by Hampton Sides - long book and sometimes it is hard to grab this one instead of something else :) and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. I need to start Behind the Scenes at the Museum as well.

I just finished "American Sniper" I give ***** I've been told that the book is better than the movie which is good also, but must lack something. I haven't seen it to say.

Finally I got the book"Still Alice" by Lisa Genova and will be working on that and "God Help the Child" by Tony Morrison.

I just finished "BODY SNATCHERS AFFAIR" BY Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini tonight*****

I'm working on "9 TALES OF HENGHIS HAPTHORN" by Matthew Hughes ***

Also yesterday finished,"KINDLE FIRE HD MANUAL'' BY Jake Jacobs that has lots of uses for the Kindle including hooking it up to your tv and showing pictures that way. EASY to understand I give it a good ****

I was hoping that it would teach to replace the battery and such...taught other things that I haven't done. I had to go to U-TUBE to learn how to change the battery and speakers.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION IS "BIBLE IN ONE YEAR'' It's a Kindle Catholic Version.

Trying to make a balance of subjects in my reading.
