The Imposter Bride by Nancy Richler. Shortlisted for the Giller. I got sucked in reading the first few pages excerpted in Maclean's magazine. It's good - I'm about a third into it.

The Dianna Gabaldon "Outlander" Series....OMG if so I loved those books and am anxiously awaiting the next book...but I thought I read recently it won't be out till next fall....Guess I should just go back and reread them all so I don't forget anything....

The Art of Racing in the Rain is truely a great book. I just finished reading it after hearing so many great reviews here on GRF. I have no doubt that you'll thoroughly enjoy it.

Box is really good. Have you read the Nevada Barr books? Her main character is a NPS ranger. Dana Stabenow has written some good ones too, Alaska based. If you like Susan Conant, you'll probably enjoy Laurien Berenson - also dog related mysteries. She shows standard poodles. I think she's a better writer than Conant. Another good dog mystery writer is Linda Benjamin, whose main character is assisted by her APB.

My husband is reading the first outlander book .... he said its a chick book but he is reading it... ok....

I am reading a couple...
I read Daughter of Smoke and Ash which I really enjoyed and waited for the second book to come out and I am now slogging through Days of Blood and Starlight which honestly I doubt I will finish... the first book kept my attention and I enjoyed... the second I am bored to tears with and doubt I will finish...

I am enjoying "The Path of Druidry: Walking the ancient green way" being the treehugging earth worshipper that I am, it is an interesting book focused on practice...

I also just finished "Hounded" which I enjoyed and one of the main characters is Oberon an Irish Wolfhound.... I am moving onto "Hexed" I enjoyed the first one and it was light reading...

this is a good thread... its always nice to see what others are reading as I am always looking for something new...

I read the Outlander series years ago, how many books are there altogether? I think I stopped after the third one.

I am reading a Midnight Clear from the Miracles of Marble Cove series by Guideposts. Gotta love those ladies! They keep me cheered up and I feel like I am really there in the story. It takes place in Maine. I have never been there in real life though. Oh sorry, the rating I give is a 4.
