    The last book I read was Louise Penny's latest novel, "A Better Man."

    It was a book about Anne Boleyn. I never finished it, but I think it was called "Doomed Queen Anne" or something like that. 100% recommend it from what I've read, though!

    It's absolutely crazy how many things are censored on here.


    I've just finished reading The Pilo Family Circus by Will Elliott. Certainly one of the crazier things I've read. It was pretty great really.

    Haven't been reading at all lately. Last book I read was "Interview with the Vampire" by Anne Rice and though there were some places in the middle where it became a page-turner, it took brute force of will to keep reading in the beginning, and overall, it made me never want to bother with any more Anne Rice ever again because it seemed like she was trying to master florid descriptive prose similar to Tolstoy while presenting a sympathetic antihero in a moral conundrum in the manner of Dostoevsky, and maybe it's just my high school love of both those authors that made Rice fall so short by comparison.

    Really, I ought to know better than to criticise successful authors...who am I? But I'm horribly judgemental and picky about reading.

    Even Dostoevsky makes Dostoevsky painful for me, so I certainly don't want to read somebody attempting to imitate him.....

    Part of Your World by Liz Braswell. It's one of the Disney Twisted Tales series, imagining what would happen if things went badly wrong for familiar heroes/ heroines of Disney films instead of getting their happy ending. This one was the Little Mermaid version.

    I thought it was done well. The author adds a lot of extra depth and personality to the characters, and the world building is cleverly described according to the different characters' perspectives.

    I always listen to the audiobook version (if there is one). I have eye problems so reading makes my eyes sore. Also, I feel much more immersed when listening.

    Now I'm currently listening to the next one in the series by Brandon Sanderson called Oathbringer.

    I forget who a lot of the characters are... :( I always forget things when series take a while to come out and yes I read a summary to refresh my memory but it didn't cover everything.

    I'm still enjoying it though! Good series :)

    The first book in The Gap Cycle series by Stephen Donaldson. Very difficult to read, I have to admit. The main character being as horrible as he is, and all that. The author has done a good job of presenting this character in all his vile existence.

    I confess, the last book I've read has been by my own hand. I am in the final editing phase: Echoes of a First Love. It's a novel based on the life of John Sevier (my sixth great-grandfather). An historical novel, set in the 18th century, John married his sweetheart when he was just sixteen years old, she fifteen. Growing up they lived through the French and Indian War, which continued after they wed. This is where his Indian fighting prowess caused him a rise in fame; then Pontiac's War, followed not long afterwards by the American Revolutionary War. In 1773, this couple left the Beautiful Shenandoah Valley, with their seven children all under eleven years of age, (one a babe-in-arms) to travel three hundred miles southwest in wagons down the Great Wagon road that wasn't really a road to speak of, at all. He still fought the Indians, only instead of the Shawnee, he was now faced with the Cherokee. He eventually fought the Battle of Kings Mountain to become a Revolutionary War Hero. This just months after his beloved wife died after birthing their tenth child. And while he did marry again, he always keep Sarah close to his heart the entirety of his time on this Earth.

    You're a writer then, @GalacticGal :) Awesome. I used to write, but I kind of allowed the general busy-ness of life get in the way many, many years ago. And then I didn't really return to it. I miss it, and on the occasions I have attempted to go back to it, I find it doesn't just 'flow' anymore, the way it used to.

    I'm currently reading the Throne of Glass series. By reading, I mean 'putting off repeatedly' because I don't want it to end.

    What's to stop you from reading it again? I read the entire Lord of the Rings series, starting with the Hobbit about every decade or so.

    I hear you there. My mother used to sew. That was her thing. She wanted me to not attempt to write until my kids were all in school full-time. I simply told her, writing isn't like sewing. You have to keep that pump primed.

    If you're really wishing to get back into it, prime that pump. You could start small. Write a journal entry every night before you crawl into bed. I find just writing an opinion in these forums helps. Find the story that creates a passion in you and go for it. You'll be astounded at how quickly the words will flow again from there. I am also chronicling the doings of my Sims and sharing what happens on these boards. Best of luck!

    "Blood of Elves" by Andrzej Sapkowski

    (unless you count comic books / graphic novels then it was re-reading the first four volumes of Transmetropolitan around my birthday last month.)
