[quote=FlightAttendant;6098579]I finished THE GUERNSEY LITERARY SOCIETY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY yesterday and I loved it right thru the last page. Highly recommend it.

My ex-boss called me just last week recommending that book. I went on Amazon and read nothing but good words from readers.

I am reading a book called No Great Mischief about life in the Cape Breton/Nova Scotia part of Canada.

I had been reading a series of books by Jacqueline Cary (Kushiel's Chosen, etc) but have to take a break with something a little historic. The "Kushiels" stories are great and pretty in depth, but purely fiction. Currently working on The Other Boleyn girl, finished Marie Antoinette a while ago. Have really enjoyed both. Havanna Nocturn is next on the list.

and just starting Sara Paretsky Total Recall
Watchers was very good. The scariest Koontz I've read so far has been Velocity. Billy the bartender goes out to his car after work one night to find a note telling him he has to choose who will die between 2 women. If he doesn't choose, the killer will. And it gets SO much worse from there.

I'm now reading "Among Other Things, I've Taken Up Smoking" by Aoiheann Sweeney.

Half-way thru and don't know ifI like it or not. It's one of those "Eh" kinda books. No real opinion other than it killed some time.

Finishing up with Tony Hillerman, going through some of the later mysteries by Jayne Krentz, Elizabeth Lowell, Catherine Coulter, and waiting impatienly for the latest of John Twelve Hawks' books to be recorded. I hate having to wait. Sigh.
