It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - Sept 13, 2010

>> Monday, September 13, 2010

It's been awhile but I'm back - at least for this post anyways!  Even in my absence,I've been reading, have you?  Well check out One Person's Journey Through A World of Books and her great blog for this week's contributers!

The Past:

I finished up just this past weekend, Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy Bundle: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.  I highly recommend this series to everyone!  Very intense, very good characters and a very good read, all 3 of them!  Go read them now!

Also highly anticipated and read last week was the final book in The Hunger Games, Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games).  This one had a bit of a different tone but I was happy enough with it.  This is another series that I highly recommend!

For my T4MC, I needed to read a book that has won a Pulitzer Prize so I chose The Shipping News (Paperback) by Annie Proulx.  It was different, can't say that it was a favorite of mine and now I'm anxious to see the movie and Kevin Spacey's portrayal of the main character.

Oooh, I almost forgot that I started a new fantasy series by Robin Hobb with book 1, Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy, Book 1).  It was good and it has been awhile since I read any fantasy.  I have the rest of the series on my TBR shelf!

On Tap:

Also for my T4MC, I am reading a biblical fiction book.  Anne Rice's Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt: A Novel.  While I've read many of Rice's novels including her Vampire and Witch chronicles, this is out of my comfort zone but it was recommended to me by my boss so I thought I'd give it a shot!

Next Up:  Not a hot clue.  Suggestions?

I'm all behind... I've yet to read Stieg Larsson's books or the Hunger Games series, but I really should as I've read great reviews.

Happy reading!

Good luck on the Anne Rice book. I have avoided her work like the plague for years! (oops...did I just say that out loud?)

good to see you back again!
