    I've been working my way through J.R.R Martin's "Song of Fire and Ice" series (HBO's "Game of Thrones" is based on book 1.) Really well done with a ton of detail...he develops his fantasy world really thoroughly. Not for the faint of heart, however. Lots of graphic violence and graphic language.

    Sadly I never have time to read anymore. In my free time I rather play or look at something online or watch a movie or watch something on Netflix. Before DD was born I was trying to read the first Twilight. I only made it through Half of it before we had to get ready for her and Also to move into our new Home.

    When I read, I read the mind rotting stuff. I read a lot of romance novels thought I haven't found one in a while that really impressed me.

    I read like a freak! Lately I've read all the Twilight books again...haha...I guess maybe I'm still a teen at heart. I've also read the Sword of Truth books all 11 of them. That took me a good 6 months I think since they're all about 800 pages. They were awesome books, but man the violence...I also read all the Harry Potter books because I never have and thought I should and I right now I'm rereading the Mortal Instruments series...City of Bones currently. I read constantly and I've run out of things to read.

    Haha I'm right there with you Leah, I actually just re-read the twilight series as well! Other than that, haven't stumbled across any books that impress me yet.

    If you like Twilight you would love the Mortal Instruments Series. It's similar and has a lot of good sarcastic humor in it. I just love it. I'm rereading those now. There's City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, and City of Fallen Angels. Those are the first four the last one hasn't come out yet. They're by Cassandra Clare. She's also written another series that is sort of like the Mortal Instruments but it's called the Infernal Devices and it's set in the 1800s in London. It's pretty cool and actually pretty different from her other series. It's first book is Clockwork Angel and the next one Clockwork Prince comes out in December...They're also making movies of the Mortal Instruments series, and the same people that did Lord of the Rings is doing those movies so they should be pretty epic...I'm such a nerd!

    I'm almost finished the last book of the Millennium Trilogy (Girl who kicked the hornet's nest) and I've really enjoyed the series. Once I'm done that I'll be reading Heat Rises "by Richard Castle" mostly because I love the show Castle, and the books are pretty good. After that I'm not sure what I'll tackle, I do like series but I like standalone fiction just as much, and I have a ton of books on my eReader, so we'll see what I'm in the mood for.

    I've just finished the Millennium Trilogy and loved it, not my normal chick-litt (I normally choose books along the lines of Something Borrowed and the Shop-a-holic series) and it took a while to really get into but I loved it!

    I do also love my chick lit (I own all Emily Giffin's books and all but the newest Shopaholic book lol) but I like regular old fiction, and crime fiction as well, I like the books by Kathy Reichs that the shows Bones is very loosely based on. I read the Hunger Games series this past spring too and loved those, and I'm not usually big on the whole Youth genre but those were really good.
