What are you reading, and/or favorite book(s)?


#1

I thought I would create a topic on books since I love reading. Plus why not make something fun!

Current book: Eligible

Favorite Book: any of the Throne of Glass books, Harry Potter


#2

My favorite book series is Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs.


#3

Currently reading: Do androids dream of electric sheep? By Phillip K. Dick

Favourite books: The song of ice and fire series, Wolf Hall, The Hobbit, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell and Did I ever tell you how lucky you are? By Dr Seuss. I know the last one is a children’s book but it never fails to cheer me up after a bad day.

Oooooh, I’m sure PGJared would LOVE to be a part of this conversation. But, he’s already gone… :ghost:


#5

I just recently finished the selfish gene by Richard Dawkins and I am hoping to read The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin😍


#6

Lock the thread on the day that he gets back. :smiling_imp:

I don’t know why, but I haven’t read fiction for a while :frowning: . There’ve been random free books on Amazon but nothing I remember. Other than that, it’d have been Game of Thrones and Wheel of Time years before that… no idea where I left off.


#7

Evil!! :astonished: I like it.


#9

How was Tower of Dawn? I’ve had it in my bag for ages but never seem to get round to starting it


#10

Started the Blood Card by Elly Griffiths but finding it harder to get into than the previous two. The series is crime fiction set in Brighton in the 1950s.


#11

I’m reading the 3rd and last book of the three body problem trilogy. The Dark Forest By Cixin Liu


#12

So many…

But recently:

  • The Passage, The Twelve, and City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin. “Vampires that don’t sparkle in the sun.”
  • The Last Policeman by Ben Winters
  • The Fireman by Joe Hill
  • Anything by Kevin Mitnick
  • Anything by Neal Stephenson

That’s recently anyway. Not counting my non-fiction (except the Mitnick), since it’s pretty heavy in my field, which probably lacks general appeal.


#13

I read a lot but some of my favorites are:
•The Valiant
•The diabolic
•Throne of Glass
•The Battlemage
•Last Star Burning
•Three Dark Crowns

I read a lot of fantasy sci-fi and these are the favorites I remember right now I am very likely forgetting a few. I


#14

Here’s Loren I remember:
•Hunger Games
•The Defiant
•The Inquisition
•Valkyrie: The Runaway

Still forgetting a few … lol just realized most of my favorites have ‘the’ in the name


#15

Favorite series (that the author has completed)
Tales of the Malazan Fallen by Steven Erikdson.

The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson is going to give it a run for its money when finished I think.

I have read Origin of Species because I was bored… there was no improvement to my mood for doing so but his observations were interesting.

Lately my wife has a bigger reading budget so I’ve been reading a lot of books by Kerri Arthur, Kim Harrison and JR Ward.


#16

Anything with James Patterson Steven king and of course Harry Potter.


#17

Hmmm reading is my favourite activity other than non pg13 things :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
I used to read a lot, couple of thousand titles in my home.

Now on ipad! YES

Favourite books - wow so many, but a few keepers

Patrick Rothfuss - Name of the Wind

Also, the Phedre trilogy from Kushiel’s dart series by Jacqueline Carey (not so pg13)

When I’m being a bit more silly I like the stories about Oberon from the iron druid chronicles (although strictly not terrific books, they are fun :slight_smile:


#18

Patrick better finish the next book soon!!! I hate waiting!


#19

Is that Dawkins book good? I have been in some of his lectures and i read the god delusion but i haven’t tackled that one yet.


#20

As for my own Entry.

Other than Forums (which is a novel onto itself) I just read the third Stormlight Archive by Sanderson. Good series so far.


#21

YOU’VE BEEN TO ONE OF HIS LECTURES​:scream::exploding_head:?!
and yeah it’s an amazing book, it really explains how the genes are the ones in control and we are merely just « survival » machines. It sort of changed how I viewed the world
