I’m currently reading Victoria: A Life by A. N. Wilson.
It’s a biography about Queen Victoria and is fairly chunky at 642 pages, but there’s a lot to cover!
I’m about halfway through and really enjoying learning about Queen Victoria, her family and the changes going on in the world during her reign.

I have trouble trying to find new books to read (hence one of the benefits of joining this community) but lately I have been genre exploring, just picking a book at random and not allowing myself to set it down, which has now led me to read "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I can now say that I have found a new series I intend to read all the way through!

I'm currently reading God's grace by Bernard Malamud. It's my first time to read one of Bernard Malamud's novel. I hope I will enjoy reading it.

book 9 of the wheel of time. It started good, but at about book 5 it feels like 90% of it is complete pointless. I'm just trying to power through it until I get to sanderson's version of it.

I am finishing a book my best friend insisted I read, Day One by Nora Roberts. I don't normally read her books but this one is a little different. I can't say I love it, but it's okay. A very fast read and interesting concept. This is the first of a series but I doubt I will continue with it. Still, I can tell my friend I finished it and she will stop bugging me about it. I'm also starting an audio book, Sleeping Beauties, by Stephen King and Owen Hill.

I'm currently reading a few books. The first (and most recent) is Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf for the Pop Sugar Read Harder reading challenge. I'm also reading The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks which I am taking forever to read but I am enjoying it. The last one I will mention is an e-book by one of my favorite new authors M.A. Clarke Scott called The Art of Enchantment.

Hello!
I have started reading "The Outsider" by Stephen King. 8) Seems really good so far. It is the first book I have read from the author so I am happy to know that he is a good author as many people say. :D I am also hearing the audiobook for "The Kind Worth Killing" by Peter Swanson, which has an interesting plot. Wish you all a happy reading! :)

Murder on the orient express by Agatha Christie. I know that this book was made into a movie not long ago but I haven't watched It yet. I love reading a good mystery book and the book is always better than the movie anyways. I'll watch the movie after I have completed the book. I'm sure I will have big expectations for the film.

I am currently reading the 4th installment of Red Rising called Iron Gold.

I have to say this series is sooo good, but very inhuman. It's like Game of Thrones, but less wordy.

I have started reading A God In Ruins by Kate Atkinson, which is a companion novel to Life After Life. I certainly hope its much better than the first book which was a total mess, a failed experiment, in my opinion.
