Read anything good lately?

Minutes to Midnight by Michael Dobbs. It's about the Cuban Missile Crisis. He tries to tell the story exactly as it happens. Really interesting.

I'm a history nerd so I mostly read non-fiction.

The last good fiction I read was Say You're One of Them by Uwen Akpan. It is a collection of five short stories depicting African children as they deal with life in parts of Africa that are war-torn and/or have been ravaged by poverty. It's very sad in parts, but Uwen Akpan is really a good writer.
3A/2C combination of ringlets and waves
Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman
Matched by Andie Condie
I just finished the second book in the series of the "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency". It was called "Tears of The Giraffe". I enjoy these books, they are light without be fluff!
CurlyLaura, just out of curiosity, why are you reading "Wolf Hall" again? I finished it a few weeks ago.
Enclave by Ann Aguirre

And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance
But you are not alone in this"

The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo, a Norwegian writer. (There's a slash through the "o" in Jo but I don't know how to replicate it with my keyboard.)

Lots of history about the Eastern front during WWII.

Next up: Tent Life in Siberia from the 1920s.

I've got one of the authors other books set during the French revolution. I can't remember what it's called, but I think that might be my next read.

A Place Of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel.

It took a while to get into it but I'm really enjoying it. I want to get Fludd by the same author.

I just finished The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. It was fantastic and I highly recommend it for dog lovers, but really for just about anyone.

Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese

Excellent. Anyone else read it?
CG since June/09
3a/b extremely thick, coarse, porous
Loving AOHR, Biolage Conditioning Balm, KCCC.
I just finished the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and I am currently reading Love the one you're with by Emily Giffin. Both are good but The Hunger Games is much more entertaining.

I'm currently reading Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat by Gwen Cooper. It is a wonderful, true story, and I highly recommend it for cat lovers, and for anyone who just wants to read a happy book.

Currently reading the Immortal Life of Henretta Lacks.

It's basically the story of this poor black woman who died of cervical cancer...but johns Hopkins university medical school kept some of the cells from her tumor...cells that have pretty much been used to cure several diseases. Her family and estate have never been compensated. Matter of fact, her family didn't even know the university was using her cells in research until some one leaked her medical information to the media.
