    Re: What are you reading?

    Finished reading Something Blue. Starting on Pretty Girls. You've peaked my interest in Girl Last Seen [MENTION=70790]redvelvet[/MENTION]. I'm going to read that next!

      Overall it was a good read. Towards the middle and especially toward the end it was easy to figure out who kidnapper was. There was one part which was really creepy. I won't go into too much detail as I don't want to spoil it for you...but when she goes back to her abandoned, childhood house that's been broken down for years.....what she sees there...still creeps me out when I think about it. But that was the only scary part imo. Happy reading.

        Re: What are you reading?

        Currently reading The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman. I've read other books by her in the past but I haven't enjoyed them as much I have this one. I haven't finished it yet though.

        Generally the fantasy genre doesn't really appeal to me. So, I couldn't get into Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings or Vampire stuff (with the exception of Twilight). But this is a beautifully written book. Susannah Owens is an elegant homemaker who lives with her psychiatrist-husband and their 3 teenaged children. Her ancestry includes the witches from the Salem Witch Trials and she has magic in her blood. She pretty much gave that life up for a life of normalcy and that is what she has always wanted for her 3 children. But from the days of their infancy, she noticed extraordinary things about each of them which signified that they, too, had inherited the same gift. She goes out of her way to hide this reality from her children and she enforces strange rules about the house: no wearing black, no red shoes, no pet cats, etc etc...which make the children suspicious and rebellious. With time they figure things out. One day the eldest of them, Franny, receives an invitation to spend the summer with her Aunt Isabelle as is the family tradition when one turns 17. Much to the protests of their mother, they end up going to Aunt Isabelle's house on the condition that they shall look after one another and promise to return to her. It is at Aunt Isabelle's house that Franny, Jet and Vincent learn about their abilities, their limitations, their family history, and the family curse which will cast its shadow upon their future dreams. Written in a spell-binding way!

                Re: What are you reading?

                So I finally finished "The Kite runner" by Khaled Hosseini.

                Took forever, I know.

                But I can easily put a partial blame on writer who takes a great story to some depressing phases that I had to put it away and took my sweet time in coming back to it.

                Now what should be next? Any suggestions? [MENTION=81566]LP[/MENTION] @aqua70 @FreshBakedPi

                Um.. preferably a little motivating theme will help.

                    Check out Five Carat Soul by James McBride. It's a collection of very amusing/ interesting short stories. For something with more meat maybe H Is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald.

                        Got ya... that second one I recommended is a memoir of sorts so not fiction. First one is though!

                              Idk if you are into sci-fi [MENTION=64730]SID_NY[/MENTION] but a couple of months ago I read Star Surgeon by Alan E. Nourse, I came across it online and finished it pretty quick. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
