What are you reading right now?

Post by Cordelia on Wed Mar 16, 2016 9:30 pm

We should all be reading, every day.  As Stephen King said, "If you don't have time to read, you don't have time to write."  

So, what do you have open right now?

The Devil in the White City. It's a historically accurate murder mystery novel, following the murders that took place during the time of the World Fair.

That sounds awesome.  Those murders were so super brutal, too.  I'd be interested in checking that out.

Weeeeellll... I WAS planning on reading the series "A Song of Ice and Fire" a few months ago but... I got distracted. I think I need to start picking it up. And yes, I bought the whole series except the recent book.

I figured reading the book series before watching the tv show would be a lot more wise lol.

The new book I just got is called "The Book of Five Rings" it was written by Miyamoto Musashi. It is sorta like... The Art of War but applied to individuals if I had to try and describe it.

I'm actually on the hunt for a good series, but so far I'm having no luck. Any suggestions?

I am a huge fan of the Kingkiller Chronicle. It is by Patrick Rothfuss.

The first book is called The Name of the Wind. And it is just a really good fantasy story.

Currently reading The Whale: A Love Story by Mark Beauregard. It's the story about why Herman Melville dedicated Moby-Dick to Nathaniel Hawthorne.

It's brilliant. I'm also from the Berkshires where both Melville and Hawthorne were living in the early 1850s. It's always nice to read about your home county in a book.

One of my favorite authors is Chuck Tingle simply because of his nonsensical book titles and writing style. One of his books that I'm reading right now is named "Domald Tromp Pounded In The Butt By His Fabricated Wiretapping Scandal Made Up To Redirect Focus Away From His Seemingly Endless Unethical Connections To Russia". I'm hoping to start another one of his books right after which is named "Dr. Chuck Tingle's Complete Guide To The Void".
