I'm reading Jann Arden's autobiography Falling Backwards. Its great. Even if you don't know who Jann is I recommend it.

She's a Canadian singer songwriter with some really iconic "in the moment" songs.

I just read Nora Roberts' latest "The Next Always" in a day. Loved it. I like it when she just does straight up day to day life books. (and the kids in the book are "real", not "romance book kids" - too advanced or too babyish) Just tried to put the next one in the series on hold (coming in March) but it's not up yet.

I like what shes doing in this series, like the last one, the other couples with books to come are fully realized parts of the story who know each other in this book. You get a chance to live with them before they are featured.

I just started the book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close...by Jonathan Safran Foer. They are coming out with the movie soon I think. It's about a little boys' perspective of 9/11 where he lost his father.

He also wrote the book Everything is illuminated, which I really didn't care for. This one, I'm enjoying much more although I've just started it.

I got addicted to these books and thought Rose was a total badass and was Team Dimitri all the way. I hope you enjoy the series if you read all the books.

For me each book gained momentum and I was power reading through them. I am glad I found the series when it was completed or else I would have went through major reading withdrawals :laughing: .

So you are hooked too :ibiggrin: ? I would just avoid this new book release about the series VA Guide - new book. I got it after reading the description thinking there would be some more detail on the characters and series, but was very disappointed. I even left a kind of bad review, which I rarely do. It was just a Cliff Notes version of the entire series that seemed cut & pasted together and not the description given on Amazon.

Maureen, I hope you enjoy the book, she is a riot!

I've read two Jen Lancaster books: My Fair Lazy, Pretty in Plaid (I love the Overdrive app on I Pad!!!). Right now I am reading selected essays written by Albert Einstein. Pretty good but it just reminds me how stupid I've gotten since I graduated school :faint:

Reading One Day, which is a new movie with Anne Hathaway. Really good so far. About the evolution of a 20 year relationship, looking at only one day in their lives each year starting in 1988. Very interesting premise.

I feel like such an idiot. Watched this movie last night and as soon as I heard the characters names, Dex and Em, I realized I have read this book and really liked it. I had completely forgotten until the movie jogged my memory!

I just read When God was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman. It's about an eccentric family over the course of 30 odd years, focusing on a brother/sister relationship. It was an enjoyable read.

Half Blood Blues is next for my book club.

Count me as a member of the idiot club, too! I saw a trailer for the movie and decided I wanted to read the book first. I went to Amazon to get it for my Kindle and, fortunately, there was a note at the top of the page saying I had already purchased the book. Still didn't remember it. I had to go into my archives, find it, and read the first few pages before I remembered it. And it wasn't that long ago that I'd read it... Yikes!

I just finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. At first I didn't like it, I couldnt finish his first book, Everything illuminated, because it was to frustrating. But with ELIC, I found that if I just enjoyed the journey and wasn't spending a lot of effort to ''figure things out', I found I really enjoyed it. I also saw the movie, and felt they did a pretty good job keeping to the book, although I felt the movie was much 'neater'.

Also read Still Alice, thanks to you guys! Loved it! Although I have been walking around convinced I have early dementia!

I've just started Winds of War, and am really enjoying it...
