I'd read them all out of order, also, so I'm enjoying a reread in order. But hopefully I can break free soon, too. Laughing

I know! There's an excerpt, too. Cool

I'm reading Jane (the woman who loved Tarzan) by Robin Maxwell.

It was on display in my library's new books section or I never would have known about it. Maxwell has done justice writing Jane's POV. It's tragic her spin of what happened to Tarzan's parents through their journal.

I highly recommend it to anyone, like me, who have a soft spot for the Tarzan series with Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan.

Just finished my re-read of Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone so I can start its sequel, Days of Blood and Starlight later today.

Hi,

I'm reading several things at once: Dennis Lehane's Darkness, Take My Hand (for the class I'm teaching), Egypt by Nick Drake, and Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt (which is, by the way, quite wonderful).

I'm about halfway through Loretta Chase's trad regency Knave's Wager which was just released in digital this past week. So far so good.

I just read that too, because of the price deal. A Loretta Chase book can be anything from a DIK to a DNF for me, and at the beginning, I was really worried about this one. (Just the whole premise of the book: that the hero would wager he could seduce the heroine...) But in the end, I really enjoyed it - intelligent adult characters behaving like intelligent adults.

I ended up loving it! I'm working on a blog review now.

As a by-product of cleaning house, I just (re)read M.J. Rodgers, Bones of Contention, a Harlequin Intrigue originally published in 1991. It's more mystery than romance. I apparently decided that it was a keeper then, and I agree with myself 21 years later. It's going back on the shelf instead of to Goodwill.

I'm still cleaning. I just (re) read Michelle Kasey, The Somerville Farce (Signet: 1991). The author was actually the person who usually writes under the name Kasey Michaels, and upon exploration, I find that it's now available on Kindle and Nook .

It's silly; it's absurd; it's ridiculous; I've been laughing a lot. I suppose that's why I kept it, and it will go back on the keeper shelves.

I wanted to read the 3rd in Nora Roberts' Inn Boonsboro trilogy, but of course had to read the first two before I could get to it. Burned through both over the weekend, and now I'm finally on The Perfect Hope. I hope I enjoy it more than others did, eek.

Currently reading Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck- It's an YA paranormal book and takes place,for the most part, in India. This is the first time I've delved in the young adult genre since I've been,well, a young adult. Really enjoying it. Probably need to read The Hunger Games next, since my sister and her daughter are pushing me to read it.

I hope you do, too. The series was a complete washout for me, unfortunately, with The Perfect Hope being the best of the bad, so to speak. Very Happy

Thought I'd bump this thread back up.

After years of telling myself I'm going to read Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan series, I've finally collected most of the books courtesy of a holiday gift card and have polished off eight of them so far. Am getting ready to start Memory next. These are fun, and the characters are great. I completely understand why they're so often recommended and addictive.

'Memory' is one of my favourites: maybe the favourite, though I also love 'A Civil Campaign'. (I haven't reread Ivan's book enough to know where it stands in the Pantheon, but I enjoyed it more the second time through, which is a good sign.)

Addictive is the word: I think of them as Pringles books - when I decide to reread one, I usually end up rereading the lot.

Are you reading them in order?
