I'm reading Too Close To The Falls, by Catherine Gildiner.

I am reading "Until Tuesday.". It is about a wounded warrior and a service dog (a golden retriever). It was on the clearance rack for 5.95. The author is a former Army Caption, Luis Carlos Montalvan.

I am reading a really bizarre book, "The Graveyard Book". Not my cup of tea at all but my book club picked it for this month. It's the story of a baby raised in a graveyard by a variety of spooks. I feel like I have to finish it but to tell you the truth I would just as soon trash it. I joined the book club to meet some new people in the town we moved into and to expand my horizons as I had gotten into a rut with my reading. So far I have been unimpressed with most of the choices. But it has certainly gotten me out of that rut. I can't wait to get back into it again!

One of the reasons I don't care for book clubs. My tastes in fiction bear almost no resemblance to the tastes of the group.

Had to read this as a fan of both Jane Austen and PD James. Good but not great. Not as much dialogue as I would have liked.

I'm finishing up "The Land of the Painted Caves" by Jean M. Auel, the most recent and probably final in her Clan of the Cave Bear (Earth's Children) series. It's a bit slower than the previous novels in the series, not quite enough drama for me, too much descriptive stuff. However for years I've hoped a sequel would come out and I'm glad she has finished up the story. (I assume it's finished, but that is my personal opinion and I have no fact to base that upon.)

Anyone read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

My current reads are some YA literature that I found as freebies on Kindle. I think I'm reading Behind Blue Eyes at the moment.

I feel the same... but have delayed buying it because of luke-warm reviews. Will continue to wait for it at the library!
