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.

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.
