1. Giving my brain a rest.
"The Red Pyramid" by Rick Riordan.

My son and I loved the 5 Percy Jackson books and we're enjoying this new series also.

PEACE!

4. "11-22-63" by Stephen King
I haven't read a King book since "Christine." It's huge (I love long books) and I only started it last night. But so far it's pretty inviting.

5. Wash this blood clean from my hands, by Fred Vargas
Edited on Sun Nov-20-11 09:16 PM by pscot
The title may have gained something in translation. Also, Death in a White Tie by Ngaio Marsh, written around 1940?

8. The Hunger Games
Still stuck on the first chapter of The Hunger Games. Some force seems to be trying to stop me from progressing past Chapter 1. Lol.
