Just as the title implies, what are you currently reading? Favorite styles, or authors? What do you like/dislike about the book you are reading?

Right now I am reading "The Portrait of a Lady", "The Wives of Henry VIII" and "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets".

The Potter books never disappoint, always so good. The Henry VIII book is very informative and very dry, you need to fully pay attention to it. I'm not really sure what to make of the last book.

I am currently reading The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. It takes place 2,000 years ago, when the Romans invaded Masada, in the Judean desert. It's okay so far, but just started it.

Before that, I read The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. Very good, a very important part of the story revolves around a maze, and the story is like a maze in itself.

I have read all the HP books, and enjoyed them immensely, haven't read the others you described. I read a lot of crime mysteries-Johansen, Baldacci, Parker, Grisham, Deaver.

However, my favorite book of all time (besides the Holy Bible) is " From the Mixed Up Files of Ms. Basil E. Frankwieler." A children's book, but great all the same. :)

Great topic of conversation!!

The Dovekeepers, that sounds very interesting. I'll have to keep a look out for that one. I'm fascinated by books, my favorites being history books or scientific. But sometimes you just need a nice relaxing read. Have you seen any of the Harry Potter movies? I was surprised how close to the book The Sorcerer's Stone movie was.

I'm reading the "Chop Chop" series by L N Cronk. I just finished book 5?, called The Other Mothers. This is a Christian series geared toward the young adult crowd, but I enjoy it a lot (I'm 41....not so much the young adult anymore lol). It's a series about how God takes even the worst tragedies and uses them to His glory. Just a warning.....you'll bawl like a baby!

I don't think I could read those "Chop Chop" books, sounds very emotionally stirring.

I'm reading "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaimon. Kind of a supernatural good vs. evil story. The main characters are children. Not bad but not what I was expecting.

A Christian romance called Callie's Mountain, and also re-reading Catching Fire. Waiting to get the new Stephen King when I'm in the hospital next week. Thank goodness for friends who buy Amazon gift cards!

Enders Game. Kids read it for school so I did too.Then we read Speaker for the Dead. Now we are on Xenocide. The movie to the first is coming out this month, but we are sure it won't be nearly as good as the book. It has been an interesting series.

Prior to those my ds got me to read some Erin Hunter books about forest clan cats. Usually I like King or Cook type books,but the change has been nice.The Potter books were fun.
