Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Currently I'm reading "Princesses Behaving Badly" by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie, an ARC in exchange for a review. When it comes out, I recommend it for an easy read! It's quite fun for history buffs!

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I love the Preston & Child Special Agent Pendergast books and a new one has just come out! Pendergast is like an uber-Sherlock with a strange, crazy family background.  The mysteries always have an uncanny bent that only Pendergast can solve.

The new book is called "White Fire" and the mystery in the story has ties to Arthur Conan Doyle and "The Hound of the Baskervilles".  OMG. Pendergast referencing back to Holmes and getting in touch with fanatics in 'The Baker Street Irregulars' for literary assistance .  It's a match made in heaven and I'm in heaven reading it.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Just started "The Amazing Adventures of Kaviler and Clay."   Heard so much about this book and have been meaning to read it for years.  A little embarassed to admit that what finally prompted me to go ahead and buy a copy was BC mentioning it as a dream project in an interview.

A book about the life of a Moriarty character told by himself. A charming monster without morality? The structure is interesting because of a little trick: The hand that draws itself.

Coriolanus - Shakespeare
Because I am going to the screening in January, maybe I can prepare me a little since all I will be doing is staring at Tom and Mark :-)

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I'm currently re-reading "Erasing Sherlock" by Kelly Hale because I'm supposed to write a review for it for Doylockian as a guest blogger - but gosh, I'm so lazy at the moment! All I can do is stare at the screen of my laptop and click "refresh" for new Sherlock content.... :-(

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

"Does Your Mother Know?" by Maureen Jennings. Which is fun because I've been to the Outer Hebrides where this is set, and because I know the author in person.

Alain de Botton- How Proust can change your life
Marcel Proust-In Search of Lost Time

Interesting concept of time and memory interwoven into a whole almost like a puzzle or dreamlike sequence where images appear together with connected feelings and thoughts.

Murder is Easy - Agatha Christie.
If they'd made the TV adaptation more like the book, Benedict would've had a much bigger role!

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I am in the middle of 3 books...

'The Hunger Games, Catching Fire'
'The Hobbit' (I actually stopped reading because I have the Danish edition... I am much more into original languages when reading)
'Breakfast on Pluto' by Patrick McCabe. I never really stop reading that book...

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I just finished two future dystopian novels -- one of the genres I enjoy -- Rivers and Sand Omnibus. In the latter, the world is dry and sandy; in the former it won't stop raining and storming. Would love suggestions for good books in this genre.

Right now reading a Miss Marple and a legal thriller.
