Currently reading Joy in the Morning which is my book group's choice for this month. I haven't read it in ages so it was good to get back into the world of Jeeves and Wooster. I may read another one afterwards. : )

I am reading 'Where the boys are' by Hilary West, certainly an eye opener about the 'business', tender too when it deals with the very young embroiled in it all !

Victorious Star (Interstellar Service & Discipline) just finished by Morgan Hawke...it is absolutely brilliant. The Sci Fi concept and story were great and combined in novel forms of erotica...five star all the way!
Hope M.Dowden you are feeling better by now. Ielle: A Realm of Janos Novel a Sci fi erotica full novel is free on Amazon at present...in case you decide to make a two book collection:)

I am half way through Shadow Country by Peter Matthiessen - it is a huge book (a trilogy that has been condensed into one large tome) - and is the story of Edgar Watson, a famous figure in the South west coast of Florida who was "credited" with killing an outlaw queen. He subsequently bullies his neighbours in the keys and they ultimately turn on him and put 13 bullets into him.

I am half way through and it is really heavy going. I will persevere but not sure whether it will be worth it in the long run.

I have just finished City of Bones and City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare and they are amazing. First book was a little slow to begin with but by god the second one kept you at the edge of your seats with the surprises. Loving this series. I have just started the third book City of Glass and already its a winner. Still trying to plough through The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, think I would prefer to watch this as a film as theres alot of jumping to and fro, don't know what others think??

M. Dowden says:
carocaro, I'm ok, hope you are as well. Thanks for the link. : )

I was brave, yesterday I bought The Devil's Star. I have so far kept away from this author as he has been compared to Steig Larsson, and I can't stand that Dragon Tattoo book series. Hopefully, when I get round to reading it I will enjoy it (fingers crossed). A local bookshop was selling some Wodehouse books cheap, so I got Laughing Gas, which I have never read before.

Miss Tolmie, I loved The Night Circus, although I was expecting to hate it. I think though that it is one of those books that you have to be in the mood for, it wouldn't necessarily be something that I would just grab when I wanted a quick read.

In reply to an earlier post on 15 May 2012, 13:22:46 BST
Well I must admit I was trying to read it when I was sitting my exams and doing revision for them but I think I may give it another try from the beginning once I have read the Cassandra Clare series. I was looking forward to it. Thanks M. Dowden for your feedback. Very much appreciated.

M.Dowden...your welcome..hope it's good. Heard the Cirque du Romani is liked by a few group members so far.
I liked the Larsson books but read them the year they came out and enjoyed them though they were slow builders.
I read a couple of Wodehouse...Jeeves the butler always having the last
word if I remember and pointing Bertie Wooster is his name...in the right direction. So long ago that is all I seem to remember.

Miss G.A.Tolmie...do you have long to wait for exam results? I suppose I should say are they finished now first?

In reply to an earlier post on 15 May 2012, 13:54:41 BST
Oh yes all finished until August, got a couple of resits to do but that should be okay. The exam results come out the 6th/7th June, so not long to wait so getting plenty of time to read my books.

M. Dowden says:
Good luck Miss Tolmie.

carcaro, I love Jeeves and Wooster because Wooster is such a bumbler, and Jeeves really runs rings around him. He gets Wooster out of all his scrapes, but at the same time he gets what he wants, whether it is to do a bit of fishing, go on holiday, or get Bertie to lose some of his more 'outrageous' clothing choices.

I can't even remember reading those bloody scenes.
I seem to remember reading seemingly endless descriptions of the scenery, flowers, etc. Good book though.

I really like The Night Circus, it twists your mind a bit, but I like that in a book. I was writing a book and when this was published the plot was almost identical to mine, back to the drawing board for me.
