I just finished Jonathan Kellerman "Twisted". I've started on the Harry Potter series I found in the community library downstairs. There were 6 books so I grabbed the set so I could read them all in order. The movies are good, but often confusing. Give me the original books and I'm happy.

Yes, Harry Potter movies can be confusing if you haven't read the books. There is so much more to the stories than is shown on the screen. But, that still won't keep me from the movie theater on the 19th.

Oh and I did like "Twisted."

Zhizara, there are 7 books in the Harry Potter series. Which ones did you get?

I'm reading the Secret Sister by Elizabeth Lowell. I can't find my Lee Child - I think I might have left it in a gym where Madeleine was playing volleyball!

Sorcerer's Stone, Deathly Hallows, Half-Blood Prince, Order of the Phoenix, Goblet of Fire, Chamber of Secrets.

As I mentioned, there was one book previously that I read and enjoyed, I don't remember which, but it's not Sorcerer's Stone. I'm hoping maybe that's the 7th book.

Thanks for letting me know, I wondered how many there were.

More like looking over the Kindle "shleves"

I went ahead and picked up the Darksword trilogy.

More Hickman and Weis.

You are missing "The Prisoner of Azkaban" the third book. I hate it when that happens.

Good choice...some authors you might look into. Simon R. Green, Jim Butcher, Kat Richardson. Getting away from SF/Fantasy, Stieg Larsson.

Hopefully that will turn out to be the book I already read. I really don't remember books once I've read them.

And I read them over and over until they are very memorable. There are a couple of series and individual books that I have worn out over the years and had to replace.

Zhizara, Sorcerer's stone is first, then Chamber, (Azkhaban is missing here) then Goblet, Order of the Phoenix, Half Blood Prince and finally Deathly Hallows. Happy reading! Those are some of my favorites, I've read them each about 3 times.

I just got 9th Judgement!! WOOHOO!
