Weekly Book Poll

What are you reading? Do you like it? Would you recommend it? What are you reading next?

I finished "Dirty Blonde" by Lisa Scottoline (review to come soon). I just started "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" ... so far, so good. I'm only on page 30. I didn't think I'd like the format used (letters back and forth between characters) but I'm finding it an interesting way to tell a story.

What's up next? I have "Cleopatra's Daughter" by Michelle Moran (amazing historical fiction author) and I have Carol Burnett's original biography.

I'm currently reading (Well, re-reading) a trilogy by Paullina Simons, The Bronze Horseman trilogy. I highly recommend these books, and this author in general, her style is so engrossing and magical I guarantee you will not be able to put the books down.
Just a quick background: It's a love story of great sacrifice and suffering, the great love of Tatiana Metanova and Alexander Belov. The 1s book is set during the siege on Leningrad - Russia, in the middle of World War 2.
No words can describe what this trilogy has done to its readers.
You. Should. Read. It.
I rest my case...

Wow Khulood,
Sounds like an amazing series. I've put it on my 'wanna read' list. I love that time period and have never read any books that were focused on Russia. Thanks for the heads up.

I just finished Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman last night.It's a mystery and one of the best ones l have read this year so far.She weaves a narrative of passion,for revenge,for art,for love in great read.I could not put this book down and finished it in a day.I am starting Five Quarters Of The Orange today.

Hi Cop's Girl,
I'll put Arcadia Falls on my wanna read list too. Sometimes it's quite hard for me to find a really good 'whodunnit'. Either I'm not fond of the character or there aren't enough twists, turns or suspense. Thanks for the heads up.

I have just finished "Water for Elephants" for my book club this month. It is the second time I have read it and it was worth the extra read. I think it would make a great film.
