Thanks. Annoying that it's truncated for me.

I've just asked to join too! My profile is ridiculously out of date - this will be my incentive to sort it out!

I sent a request to join, I'd love to keep this thread going!
I finished "All the light we cannot see" and it was very good, I loved the extra short chapters and the going back and forth in time and perspective. It was hard to read because of the topic, but very well written.

I then read the latest Donna Leon one (Falling in Love) which was good but too short and easy compared to others. The plot was good but it was resolved too quickly.

Now I started "A little life".

Lavawitch - I'm so happy you're liking A Song of Ice and Fire. It's one of my favorite series and though very long it's such a complete and well thought out world and history that I can't resist.

I just finished this a couple days ago and loved it! It was beautifully written and very moving. I've read a lot about WWII but it tends to be from an America/British viewpoint so this was especially thought provoking to have two completely different sides represented.

I'm between books right now but also recently read Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. It was very intense, but so interesting in the context of race relations historically and today.

Sure-this is one of my favorite threads.

I fizzled on Game of Thrones for now. Reading 4 in one go is too much, but I'll hopefully be ready to finish book 4 in a couple weeks.

I set up a reading challenge on GoodReads, but can't tell if anybody else can see it.

I can see it! That's a great idea for a challenge. I definitely have a few that I'd like to go back to. Some of them were library books that I didn't finish before they were due because I had too many out at a time during a busy month, but I also have a few that just didn't grab me at the beginning but which get better a little ways in (according to reviews).

I can see the challenge since you mentioned and I knew to click on challenges, but I didn't see any other reference to it.

I'm hoping I've just requested to join... but I'm doing it through my phone n my facebook page looks spammy because I have no friends as I try to remain anonymous!
Thanks for setting up this group. I've read some great books because of recommendations on this thread x

I went to see Margret Atwood this week. It was part of her book launch for the hag seed which is part of the Shakespeare project that six writers are taking part in. I adore her and can't wait to read the book which is based on the tempest. I've also ordered Jeannette Winterson's book the gap of time which is based on a winter's tale.
Next year I think I'm going to have an Atwood challenge and try and read her novels I haven't got round to yet.
I'd also like to read all the Shakespeare re-writes as there are some great authors involved in the project.

I requested to join the goodreads group (thanks for setting it up!) I never update Goodreads, but maybe this will help motivate me to do that. I like seeing what everyone is reading!

Currently reading a load of vampire fiction plus a rather depressing book on bees (More Than Honey). I think I'll start on The Strain (del Toro and Hogan) next! Also reading David J Skal's Something in the Blood : the untold story of Bram Stoker the man who wrote Dracula.

I'm reading Royal Assassin, the second in The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb. I'm really enjoying the series- it's difficult to stop reading!

Working my way slowly through "In the Woods." I put it away over the weekend because I got mad at the main character and I guess to stop reading it for a while is my mind's equivalent of giving him the silent treatment. haha.
