I just finished one of the earlier "Reacher" novels by Lee Childs. I had occasionally read these as I sort of bumped into them, in no order etc. and really enjoy them. There was one in there, one of the more recent ones I reallty disliked and couldn't finish (some woman in Texas with a bad marriage). I was disappointed that maybe the series had taken a turn I didn't like. But I read one I think came after (Nothing to Lose) and liked it.
Author Lee Child (http://www.leechild.com/books.php - broken link)

I got halfway through a book called "Stray" by Rachel Vincent about werecats. Not your typical adult fare I know but I've loved this sort of stuff since I was young (am now 53). Don't know if I'm going to finish it. The overall premise is actually pretty good but the main character in this book is just way too irritating and dialog too repetitive even for me who can tolerate a lot.

The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane...excellent, especially this time of year. Written by Katherine Howe, a direct descendant of one of the Salem "witches".

Just read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. I don't typically read much YA, but my friends were all reading them! The last book that fell into that catagory was Twilight, these were much better.

"There's A (Slight) Chance I May Be Going To Hell" by Laurie Notaro (one of the funniest writers I've ever read).

I just finished Edgar Sawtelle, it was really good. It started out a little slow, but then after the first 50 pages I couldn't put it down. I can't wait till he writes another one.
