Rqotd - 4/13

Hope y'all don't mind my random questions! :mrgreen:

What is the last book you read cover to cover?
Are you currently reading anything?

I love to read trashy romance novels. My favorite romance author is Lisa Kleypas. I'm a complete hopeless romantic and I love love stories. (I can even get DH to watch a chick flick with me once in a while)

Other than that I read "For Parents and Teenagers" By William Glasser for a class book report last semester and I read Mitch Albom's "The 5 People You Meet in Heaven", and I read that while I was pregnant and it made me cry for a whole afternoon. . .

The last book I read cover to cover was a trashy book called the other woman. This week I am reading The coutesan and the samurai. It's actually by the same author of the book we got Ronin's name from.

I love to read! I just read Heaven is for Real (in like 4 hours, it was super easy and good!), and I am currently reading Captivating (christian book) and I try to pick up my Bible once a day too!

I LOVE LOVE reading! Unfortunately I dont have as much time to do that now, not that Simon isnt worth it of course.
I read Flirt by Laurell K Hamilton about a month ago, and am currently reading Bullet by LKH and Voyager by Diana Gabaldon.

There are about a million books I'd love to read so hopefully things will calm down with Simon at some point!!! Also getting him in his own room for sleep would allow me to read a bit before bed. We're planning on making the transition soon since he's too long for the bassinette now.

Kitty, you're reading two of my favorite series! LKH is just trash at its finest. Wink I have Outlander on CD in my car. I just listen to it over and over. lol.

The last book I read all the way through was The No Cry Sleep Solution. Before that it was a free Kindle book call Sweet Baklava and Pale Demon by Kim Harrison.

I am currently reading:
A Mom After God's Own Heart for a weekly bible study/playgroup
Respectful Parent, Respectful Kids (not impressed so far though)
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - VERY interesting, this is for an online book club over at thebabywearer.com.
And Archangel's Kiss by Nalini Singh for my fun read

I read every night for an hour or two before going to sleep. It's my me time. Everybody else in the house is alseep or at least quiet. Smile

I've been reading Laurell K Hamilton too! I've read a bunch of her Merdith Gentry series, although I haven't read them in awhile so I'm pretty behind now. They got a little over-the-top, but I'd like to finish them anyways. And I read some Diana Gabaldon when I was younger and loved them.

Yes, the Twilight books are WAY better than the movies!!! I read the whole series in about 2 weeks.

I love to read too! I read so many that it's hard to keep track, but I think the last book I read was called Twenties Girl. It's by the same author that wrote the Shopaholic series, which I absolutely love. I also have been reading the Eve Dallas series by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts) but I'm waiting for the next one to come out. Currently I'm reading Water for Elephants. It's alright, but I'm not super excited about it. It's one I never would have picked out, but my friend let me borrow it.

I love your RQOTD! Biggrin

LKH is such trash! I love it!! I've read the entire Merry Gentry series and am on the current Anita Blake series.

Anyone else like the Sookie Stackhouse books?!!? I also love the show True Blood! I am a sucker for vampire/fantasy stuff. The trashier the better! LOL! Although I do read "real" books too, but it's nice to have a break and not think. Smile

Janis, Twilight the book is definitely better than the movie. It's one of those no need to think books, a great relaxing read I think. Smile

I've read all but the last one to come out in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Don't like True Blood at all though. I love my trashy vampire/witch/werewolf books. :mrgreen:

If I weren't a SAHM I probably wouldn't read at night. I do lose out on sleep by choosing to read. I do most of my reading on my iPad in bed though.

I haven't gotten through anything that wasn't baby or school related in about 6 years. It makes me sad.

TWILIGHT... Omgosh, I'm seriously addicted to Edward.... LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

I liked both the books and the movies... I think they worked wonderfully together Smile I can sorta put them together and then I can feel and see what is happening... like when I read the book I can see 'real' images & when I watch the movie I can feel the intensity of the words... iykwim Blum 3 maybe I'm weird... LOL

Oh, and have I mentioned just how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE Edward??? Blum 3

Diana Gabaldon is my favorite Veronica! The 'Outlander' series is my all time favorite. I've had a really hard time reading anything in the past 2 months between work and the kids which is sad because I LOVE reading anything I can get my hands on.

I do my reading while pumping at work (yay getting paid to read) and before bed while feeding Ronin. Tat one is getting a bit problematic though as he loves books and pulls off when I turn the page sometimes.

I think 95% of Nicolas Sparks' books are meant to make the reader cry. I want to say there's one where no one dies...but of course he had to write a second book with those characters where one of the main characters does die. UGH. I don't bother reading him anymore. I like my cheerful fluff books. Wink

First off, Edward sucks, Jacob all the way lol.....
I haven't touched a book since Madison was born. But some of my faves are of course the Twlight series, 90 minutes in Heaven, Heaven is Real, the 5 people you meet in Heaven (wow, trend here)... and I love Melody Carlson books!!
