I read Room a few months ago, disturbing yes, but very good. I also recommend The Sandcastle Girls, story about the Armenian Genocide, very well written. It's by Chris Bohjalian.

I almost quit this group, but, I'm so glad I didn't. Lots of good book selections that I haven't read & am excited to read. I'm in the early pages of Room. Disturbing but hard to put down. I usually only read one book at a time, but I lost a book I had started, A Visit from the Goon Squad, and can't wait to pick it up again when I finish Room.

I haven't' read that series. I've only read the Sookie books. I was curious about the grave series though. I remember looking at that series you're reading and thinking it might not be up my alley.

I've just started, and nearly finished, "Shakespeare's Landlord" by Charlaine Harris. My only contact with this author was the vampire stuff, so I'm quite surprised by this book. Not supernatural, not so light-weight. Has anyone else read this series?

I agree, I did kind of feel like he spent too much time there but I still enjoyed it. I'll have to check out the discussion. I'm curious how the next book will work since we still have the third day to cover as well as the present, unless he's going to do a fourth book dedicated to the present time.

I meant the sword and laser group on goodreads.com. Either way, it's all the same stuff.

Alice,

Wise Man's Fear was indeed hard to put down (and hard to hold up. Boy are my wrists sore!) I did find his time in fairy-land much too long, though it did set up his meeting with the scary tree creature that told him the horrible truth about the future and the past. (Still trying to not give anything away to anyone who hasn't finished the book yet :) ) You should check out the discussion on Goodreads, in the laser and sword section. There were lots of ideas there about what might be coming in the next book, based on things I did not pick up on myself. Fascinating.

I just finished reading Blink of an Eye by Ted Dekker. It was an amazing book! :D Actually, anything by him is good...

I'm currently reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I bought the book when it was first released and never got around to reading it. I'm 65 pages in and so far, I'm not sure what I think. The beginning I found to be very dull with all the political and financial back story but I'm beginning to enjoy it and I'm interested in the characters. So many people seem to love this book so I'm hoping I get lost in it soon.

 

On another note, Carlos Ruiz Zafon has a new book out! We all know how I love me some Zafon ;) This is another young adult novel (his young adult books are really more adult) and is called The Midnight Palace. That's next on my reading list.

Hey Julia,

 The Wise Man's Fear was great. I enjoyed it just as much as the first. In this book Kvothe spends a lot more time away from the university but that allows us to meet some interesting new characters. By the end of this book you can really see how Kvothe has grown and changed and I can't wait for the next book!
