Default Don't Laugh

Thanks for this thread...always looking for something good to read.

I read the 50 Shades series...I like the basic story, but yeah, by the 3rd book I was doing a lot of skimming.

I finished Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith a few weeks ago and honestly loved it. I laughed when a friend told me she was reading it because the title sounds so ridiculous, but I found it to be a very creative and dare I say genius twist on history. Don't watch the movie though, it's too different from the book and very disappointing.

I just finished "The Invisible Bridge" which was an amazing story but not really a light summer read... though I read it at the pool. I do recommend it though.

Currently reading "Elizabeth the Queen" by Sally Bedell Smith... if you are interested in what her life is really like (it's not titillating though I didn't realize that her sister and other relatives had such troubled personal lives!) then I recommend it. She is a hard-working lady!

Another series (light, easy read) I have recently enjoyed is "Her Royal Spyness" by Rhys Bowen... another series set in the same time (post WW I Britain) is the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear.

I just finished Shadow of Night, book two in the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I enjoyed both it and the first book, A Discovery of Witches, so much that I'm already wanting to reread them both! I highly recommend them both.

Right now, I'm reading Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeannette Winterson. I am also reading the Land of Canaan series. It's about the Amish in Colorado.

I'm not reading anything at the moment I was on a roll for a while....read the whole fever series, then moved on to 50 shades. I read the first 2, kinda sorta liked them, but I guess not enough to read the 3rd. I have been in a slump since then. I read a couple of Amish fiction novels by Jerry Eicher last month, but haven't started anything else since. I've been wanting to read the sequel to Becoming Marie Antoinette, but haven't yet.

I just finished reading "The Apothecary's Daughter" by Julie Klassen and quite enjoyed it. I love period novels and movies and this one was quite nice.

I'm reading "Mariana" by Susanna Kearsley. I really loved the other book of hers that I read, "The Winter Sea" and this one is awesome also.

Whenever anyone mentions the words "if you like BDB, try..." i get all excited and have to check it out immediately! I love BDB! Always looking for something that might be equally awesome.

I am currently in the middle of Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. My husband and I saw the movie last week and I needed some clarification on it so I thought reading the book might clear up some of the confusion that I had. It isn't bad so far.
