Bookin' It

So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

It’s Friday . . . What Are You Reading?

kids reading back to back

Time for another What Are You Reading post. Inquiring minds want to know. 

After taking a break from urban fantasy to read an interesting anthology and a novel that didn’t quite do it for me, I’m now almost done with Faith Hunter’s latest Jane Yellowrock  book, Death’s Rival

Next, I’ll be starting the newest Odd Thomas book by Dean Koontz, Deeply Odd. I can’t wait to find out what the endearing Oddie has been up to.

So, what are you reading?

    I’m reading Forever Odd, at the moment. I like this series and Kootz writing style.


    • You’ll soon be caught up with me, Felix! It’s one of my favorite series, for sure. I adore Odd Thomas. I heard Dean Koontz say the series is his favorite of all his books. I think it shows in his writing. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for taking the time to comment, too. I always enjoy seeing you pop in here. (Does this mean you finished Night Life?)


      • Felix on said:

        Yes, I finished Night Life. I felt that I needed a break from that one. I’ll go back to that series and also to Monster Inc. .


        • I think it’s great to mix them up a bit, Felix, though I will confess, sometimes I will read a series from start to finish, if all the books are available when I begin it. I am missing an Odd Thomas book, which I will be sure to add to my collection in time for you to continue with these. I have lost my list with the names of the books I loaned you, so I’m not sure what you will be needing next time. You’ll have to let me know what you have already. (I know you aren’t ready for more books yet, but I want to be sure I’ve got the next batch on hand. I like being a Library Lady.)


  2. Just finished “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” by Neil Gaiman and am starting “Nemesis” by Jo Nesbo.


    • Oooh, how did you like Ocean? I’ve heard it’s short, but good. It’s on my List. Let us know what you think of Nemesis, too. Thanks for stopping by, Steve. I’ve been so swamped lately, I haven’t posted nearly enough, but I hope to do better this week. Trying to get organized, here.


      • That’s okay — we’ve just returned from 2 weeks on the east coast visiting family. 🙂

        I liked “Ocean” very much — and it’s very much a short novel or long novella. Wonderful “feel”.


        • Hope you had a wonderful trip, Steve! Welcome home!

          I’m looking forward to reading Ocean. It might be my next book, in fact. After “Deeply Odd,” that is.


  3. I always have trouble with question. Usually, I’m either literally reading something (reading it and not on the web or even talking to people) or not reading. Once I get started I usually don’t put a book down. LOL. But I most recently finished Hunting the Jackal by Seressia Glass and After hours by Cara McKenna. What’s up next? I have an ARC of Daysider (Nightsiders) by Susan Krinard I’m hoping to get to this weekend. I haven’t read the Jane Yellowrock series. Will have to give it a look.


    • Hi, Charlee! I’m easy. I’m happy to hear what you’ve just finished and/or what you are getting ready to start. It’s all part of seeing what people are up to with the books they enjoy, or don’t. And feel free to answer by telling us if you liked what you just finished, too. Any kind of book talk is good talk, in my opinion.

      Good to see you stopping by. I’m making note of what you are reading, and checking them out, myself. Thanks for posting!


      • After Hours was my favorite recent read. I think it is getting mixed reviews. I think Cara McKenna tackles characters in a way that makes people uncomfortable. It works for me though!


        • I’ve never read her, but I’ll be checking her out, for sure. Thanks for your thoughts on the book. My list grows . . . and grows . . . and grows!
