Re: For the love of reading group! ~JANUARY 2013~ *Join us!*

Finished Anne of Green Gables. I am going to try and find some other books now. Not sure if I should read journal articles first to keep my mind sharp in my ESOL or if I need to read more fiction right now.

I started A Lantern in Her Hand--it's good so far. Thinking of some ****ens next as we have been watching a lot of BBC productions of ****ens novels & they are so good.

I finished Insurgent the other day and loved it. So not looking forward to the wait for the 3rd book. I started Gone Girl yesterday.

Re: For the love of reading group! ~JANUARY 2013~ *Join us!*

I'm coming in a little late, but I would love to join! I love to read, and I'm having fun experimenting with my new Kindle Fire that I got for Christmas. I have set a goal of 100 books this year on Goodreads which is the same as I have the past two years.

I've been in a bit of a slump lately, not really sure what I want to read next, which is what lead me here.

I'd like to re-read the Outlander series before the new one comes out in the Fall.

I just got Criminal by Karin Slaughter from the library on my Kindle, and I'm excited to read that since I just blew through the rest of the series.

I just finished Fire Burn and Caldron Bubble which I downloaded free from Amazon. It was cute, light and fluffy about witches, vampires, fairies, etc. The first one in a series so I'll probably read more.

I am reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe with DS#1. We just finished The Magicians Nephew, and are planning to work through the Narnia series.

Can I join in?
I have been back in the reading groove lately. I forgot how much I missed it. Read a bunch of books over the holidays and my in laws got me a Kindle Paperwhite. I've never wanted a e-reader but I have to say I have enjoyed it so far

I am currently on the last book of the Millennium series (The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest ). I've like the whole series. I found it a little snow in places but I still have enjoyed it.
I've recently read...
Dragon Slippers
Wonder Sweet, heartbreaking story.
Among Others
The Lucky One
Home...I had a hard time getting into the characters. May have to read it again.

Up next I have The Giver(thanks to a bunch of people mentioning on Diaperswappers), The Outcasts (Brotherband Chronicles), Code Name Verity. I am all over the place with the genre. I like pretty much anything except autobiographies. Maybe I've been reading the wrong ones

I like that series! I can't wait to see what happens. I'm a sucker for dystopian. There are about 10 books I'm dying to read that come out this year. I try not to read series that aren't completely out for that very reason.
