I finally started Don Quixote! I heard it's a fun read. Going by the prologue, the author seems to be quite an interesting person as well haha.

I'm about halfway through The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells

I am starting The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks. This is my second Banks novel this year - I 'discovered' him only recently and thoroughly enjoyed his later novel The Crow Road. The subject matter in The Wasp Factory sounds challenging to say the least.
I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded; not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night.

Precious Gifts by Danielle Steel, is the book I'm reading right now.
The storyline is dealing with a dysfunctional family of girls (sister's).
The loss of their father, and realization that their mother is a woman too!
Really good book.
Thank you

I just finished Pembrim by Bree Lenehan and have been on the hunt for new reading material. I haven't felt drawn to anything yet. I'm thinking something occult/supernatural related but nothing super dark. We shall see.

Currently reading Life Reset by Shemer Kuznits. Its a LitRPG series about a man who got stuck inside a game when his "friend" betrayed him and used a spell to turn him into a goblin.

I just finished reading Zero Day, the last book in the Hatching series. I loved that book so very much, I think that it’s my favorite book I’ve ever read, besides Harry Potter. I do love apocalypse books, maybe somebody has some suggestions like that one for me. If you like apocalyptic horror, this is the right book for you, trust me.

Right now, I am rereading the Harry Potter series for the 5th time! I think that I mostly read books for the fun of it, which results in a ton of name calling. Joke will be on them when I become a famous genius for all my reading.

The House of Baric trilogy by Jillian Bald. An elegant historical romance. I'm not usually into these sorts of books but it's a corker.
