Read any good books recently?

Postby Graceful Leonard on April 30th, 2013, 4:04 pm

I'm currently reading Kiss of the Spider Woman by Manuel Puig, which I have to study for a course. It's quite unusual in that much of the narrative involves a character relating the plots of old B-Movies.

Have you read any interesting books recently?

Have you tried any of the Doctor Who novelizations?

I have just ordered The Dalek Generation by Nick Briggs. Everything the guy does is gold, so I'm looking forward to reading it. I've never read any Doctor Who novels before, so I think this should be a good start.

I am currently reading a Button Box Mystery by Kylie Logan. It's about a woman who sells buttons for a living. In this story, she finds a dead movie star in her shop. The movie star was looking to buy buttons for her wedding dress.

For the second time, I am reading a book by author George Mann called The Affinity Bridge. It is a combination of steampunk, science fiction, and Sherlock Holmes tossed in for good measure. It is a mystery involving airships, mechanical men, and zombie like creatures roaming Victorian London. Queen Victoria, herself, is kept alive by a steam powered artificial lungs. As i said, this is the second time I am reading it. The characters are likable and there isn't a boring chapter in the entire book.

Lately, I have been reading a series called Cooper Kids Adventures by Frank Peretti. It is a good series about a biblical archeologist. The stories are fictional.

Also, Not long ago, I read a fictional story about the titanic sinking. It featured two young ladies, one in first class and the other in steerage. Very good.
