    What are you reading right now?

    So what are you bookworms reading at the moment and what have you enjoyed reading recently?

    I am reading Sweeet Valley Confidential which is a SVH book set 10 years later! I loved reading the SVH books as a kid and this is equally as awesome. I feel that they have plugged it as an adult book though, howeverit doesn't feel like an adult book - seems like they threw a bit of sex and swearing into a young adult book! But I am loving it!

    oh Jane Eyre is a lovely story! I hope you get to read a bit more of it soon! And i know what you mean about having no time to read, i don't read as much as i used to.

    My favourite author is Sophie Kinsella who writes the shopaholic series of books as well as some stand alone novels. She writes very well and I love her stories! All very easy reading. I also love Stephen King books for a scare!

    Ah, Jane Eyre...my favourite novel! I think I have read it about 30 times, at least! And Wuthering Heights. I majored in English Lit and the 19th century Brits were my faovurites. Right now I am on the last 30 pages of a reread of Pride and Prejudice. I am really behind in my reading these days. I usually read 50 or more novels a year, so need to step it up. I used to be a moderator on a book chat, which sadly AOL disbanded years and years ago when they dropped all their chat rooms. But I did run a fun month long class on Dracula one October and had 20 "students" who saw Dracula more as the movie than the actually novel, which is very different. No movie version has done it justice and I would love to direct one! When I pick out my next read I will put it up here! I am also reading The Witch of Prague (forget author) on my Kindle!

    Stephen King freaks me out. Every since I saw the original version of The Shining I knew I could never read his books. Too local, too twisted for me! He is, however, the king of horror!

    Right now I am reading Chainless Soul, by Katherine Frank (a bio on Emily Bronte) and The Letters of Emily Dickinson. This should prove interesting to compare the two reclusive Victorian writers at the same time! This was not planned!

    Currently I'm reading "The girl who played with fire" by Stieg Larsson. I'm almost done so next I'll be reading the last one in this trilogy: "The girl who kicked the hornets' nest" These books are really good and I highly recommend them.

    I'm currently reading Stephen King's 11/22/63. Been a fan of his since early tween years and now pushing 40 and still love him!

    How are you with Fantasy? I happily recommend A Song of Ice and Fire. Its the book series that the HBO Series Game of Thrones is based on. I have them on my kindle good reads so far.

    White Girl Problems. The main character is a bit into herself, but I still like it. She states everything you think in your mind, but too afraid to say a loud. Still reading it.

    I also bought the Hunger Games book wanted to read it before I saw the movie. After I read that trilogy I'm going to start the girl in the dragon tattoo trilogy.

    Actually for a book that's directed at the tween market the Hunger Games are very good. I've read two out of three of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy so far and while I found them entertaining that first book took a while to pick up in my opinion but it still turned out to be a good read. Can't wait to get to the last one.

    I´m reading "Female Chauvinist Pigs" for the second time. I highly recomend it! It´s a book that everyone should read at least once.
