Check out "Cezanne's Quarry" Vit. I haven't read it yet, but it's on my list.

I finished Hunger Games trilogy and I rate the three volume series as "good." Note that I am a very harsh grader. My only higher rating is "excellent."

I'm currently on Game of Thrones volume 2, A Clash of Kings. Actually I'm on about page 5 or 6, and finding the prologue very hard to get into. I rated the initial volume "good" too.

I've been trying to start Pirates of Savannah by Tarrin P. Lupo. A little history, a little fiction. I think it will be a good read if I can make the jump and get started.

I just read 4 books by Elle Casey. They started with Changeling (which was free) and I laughed so hard at that one I bought the other 3 for my Kindle. They were YA books and I thought they were quite an entertaining read. The descriptor starts with, "A potty-mouthed teenager..." and oh she is such a potty mouth! But oh so funny!

I am almost done with A Clash of Kings and I am also reading Take Your Eyes Off the Ball: How to Watch Football by Knowing Where to Look. (This is in its DTB form)

We had just ordered "The Sugar Blockers Diet" by Rob Thompson, MD, and it came today. I have read the first chapter and am on the second, and it is fascinating! This is not the Sugar Buster thing that was popular a few years ago. This doctor is a cardiologist, and he suddenly found himself diagnosed with diabetes, so he decided to study it and this book is the result. I don't know if it will be worth the read or not, but so far he is making a lot of sense.

I waited too late to keep my book supply going, so I'm waiting for some more Jack Reacher novels, and I bought a Karin Slaughter (Fallen) to keep me entertained until then.

I'm thinking about ordering the whole Incarnations of Immortality series to re-read - has anyone else enjoyed them?

Alix, you enjoy fantasy. Have you read these books?

I finished my first Jack Rollins book and headed to the used bookstore for the rest. I think I got 8 of them.
