I don't think I've read Outpost....Is that another Koontz?

I have read Velocity, though. I liked it.


I just started A Clash of Kings. I've had it for a while now, but I haven't found time to start until this morning.

I'm reading The Fellowship of the Ring right now. I finished A Game of Thrones and absolutely loved it, but wanted a shorter book to read before diving into A Feast for Crows.

I know....but the first book in the series is actually called Game of Thrones. Book 2 is called A Clash of Kings.

LOL! As I wrote A Feast for Crows, I knew I was wrong about which book came next. Yes, I meant A Clash of Kings. :p

But even as I wrote yesterday (or whenever it was) that I was reading The Fellowship of the Ring, I suddenly got a craving to continue the Sword of Truth series so I started reading Chainfire (Book 9) and am already almost halfway through after one day. I love that series soooooooo much. :wub:

Reading belongs here, 'course. What are some of your favourite books, and what are you currently reading?



Is that heaven?

I LOVE reading!!! I'm currently reading The Bar Code Tattoo, and it's really good so far.
My favorite books include:
Harry Potter series (all of them)
The Hunger Games (first book, need to read the rest)
The Book Thief (my favorite book ever)
Brave New World

So I read Chainfire and then Phantom in the span of 3 days. I literally could not put the books down. I stayed up until 2AM last night finishing Phantom, then slept until about 8AM and started Confessor when I woke up. :bookhouse: I can't wait to find out how the saga ends. :sweat:

After reading this thread and looking up the book, I'm going to pick up Hunger Games. Well, maybe after I finish ADwD, the latest Song of Ice and Fire book. I also just picked up Vol. 7-10 of The Walking Dead comics - I'm obsessed with the show and I'm really enjoying the books.

I just started the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson and am only 3 chapters in - it is starting out as a very good book! (Already am thinking in terms of a mafia game :lol:).

However, I just received my copy of A Dance with Dragons and I am sorely tempted to put Mistborn aside, but..... maybe I will wait. Decisions, decisions!

I know I'm a little late in reading these books, but just finished the Twilight Series....Awesome books.

Though IMO books 1 and 2 could have been combined into 1. Book 4 was the best! I'm wanting to see the movies now but will prob wait until all the movies are out on DVD and then go rent them.

The 2nd one was absolute s*it! The first was standable...I dont really want to watch the others but I may as well. I know I say watch, I don't want to read them it would be a waste of my time

I just finished reading the second book in the Tunnels series: Deeper by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams.

Really, really, really good! I can't wait to start the next book as the first two books have ended on cliffhangers!

Finished The Hunger Games back to back to back. Didn't like the ending but it was really good right up until the end.

I'm on the waiting list to get it from the library. But honestly, I'm sick of waiting and think I'll just go buy it since I'm dying to read it. Glad to hear you think it's awesome! :)

I did. It was short for a fantasy book and SoT book. But it was really good, IMO. It is a set up book FYI. It does not exactly have an ending. It is the first book in a three part series he is going to release. Next book: Kingdom of Ashes. :nicenod:

I've read a few negative reviews. But most of it is because of it being a set up book, IMO. It was the same when Chainfire was released. Everyone b*tc* about that and I loved that entire arc.

I like the new villain and they way they set up what is happening. Don't want to spoil it for you though.

Ooooh! Thanks for the extra info. I had no idea it would be a set up book and that's fantastic! As long as it doesn't involve Kahlan not knowing who she is, I'm cool. That was a painful stretch for me to read (even though I absolutely LOVE all of those books).

I might go buy it today in fact. :)

I still need to start those SoT books - who writes them again? I keep forgetting his name when I'm at the library. :blushing:


I've been working my way through Nick Cave's The Death of Bunny Munro . It's taking me longer to read it than I would like. I'm not sure why it's the case. It's one of those books I enjoy reading when I pick it up - but I can put it down for long streaches of time and come back to it and pick up where I left off. I'm still not very far into it and I've had it for a couple weeks. I think the combo of not having as much spare time and it not quite "hooking" me are working against my finishing it. I keep waiting for wacky Nick Cave stuff to happen (like his music) but it so far is reading pretty straight.
