As an avid reader and lover of literature, I'd be interested to know what books my fellow and sister CIHers have read lately.  Thus, this Off Topic thread.  Perhaps we can share our literary preferences, latest great reads, beloved authors, short reviews and get suggestions on further reading materials.

The main genres of books I read are mysteries, series mysteries, all from the gritty, hardboiled detective type, police procedurals to cozies, and everything in between.  I also love reading suspense, thriller, true crime, autobiographies and biographies and anything about animals and pets.

Last two books I've read/am reading now:

Cold Stone by C.J. Box
Fictional character Game Warden Joe Pickett in Wyoming, latest in long series, suspense and mystery.

Shake The Devil Off: a true story of the murder that rocked New Orleans by Ethan Brown

I'm currently reading Harry Turtledove's Colonization:Down to Earth. It's book 2 in his 3 book Colonization series, which is a continuation of his 4 book Worldwar series.

Worldwar involved an alien invasion during WW2. The Colonization series takes place 20 years later, and deals with the arrival of the second wave of aliens, a wave who aren't soldiers and were expecting to arrive to a conquered planet.

Last book I finished would be a Forensics textbook.

Currently reading Doctor Who: The Silent Stars Go By

A very eerie well-written wintertime story.

A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews.  I'm also trying to re-read some classics, like Catcher in the Rye, Gone With the Wind and Stop-Time.

Catcher in the Rye and Billy Budd are great books about growing up, authenticity, authority, etc. I love those to death. Extremely relatable.

I just finished reading The Terminal Man by Michael Crichton.

I read My Booky Wook, an Entertainer's Memoir. Very telling and enthralling. :)

I have about 40 pages left in this True Crime book: Bitter Blood: A True Story of Southern Family Pride, Madness, and Multiple Murder

and I'm about 100 pages in to: The Silver Star by Jeanette Walls.

I LOVE to read. Beloved got me a Nook because I was buying so many books. I get rid of a lot of them but I'll admit, it's not easy. I have a love affair with books!
