I've read other books by Jodi Picoult, but not "Lone Wolf"--I'll have to get back to reading some more of her books. Way too many good books out there (lol)!

Ann, I haven't read any books by Michael Robotham, but from the write up about the book, it sounds like one I would enjoy reading. Guess I will have to add him to my wish list (lol)! Hope you can finish it soon; in the mkean time, enjoy napping!

Twoki, I like Kris Radish but haven't read "Tuesday Night Miracles" -- let me know how you like it.

LOL...thought I was about caught up with this week's posts--almost missed this thread!

Suzan, glad you enjoyed "The Language of Flowers". I've read most of the Rizzoli and Isles series to include "The Keepsake," but not "The Sinner"--nor "The Silent Girl" which came out last year.

As for me, I just finished reading "The House I Loved" by Tatiana De Rosnay (author of Sarah's Key which I read a couple of weeks ago)--and enjoyed both immensely.

I'm not liking Hunger Games as much as I did Twilight books, but I am liking them a LOT!!! I think the difference is the love story. In Twilight, you knew and always knew that it was always Edward and would be forever no matter how hard Jacob tried to steal her away. For me, the love story was the best part. In HG, though, you're never quite sure which guy she'll end up with and I keep switching my mind as to whom I think it should be.

I'm reading Mockingjay, the third in the Hunger Games trilogy. Fast and good reads!! I have a few books on my Kindle, not sure which I'll read next.

We'll go see Hunger Games movie next week.

This week we're planning on going to see War Horse.

Tonight I'm watching our Kansas University Jayhawks in the National Championship basketball game. Not doing so good right now, but we have hope!! Even if we lose this game, though, we'll still be the #2 team in the nation!! Wow, that is awesome!!!

On TV, I'm watching Army Wives. Actually, though, we only have basic cable, so I watch it the next day on their website.

Also planning on watching DWTS if I ever remember to turn it on!! lol

Just starting Beneath a Marble Sky for book club. Gotta read fast - it's next Tuesday evening! Also listented to a couple of Michael Connelly's books - part of the Harry Bosch series. Started reading Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult. Had to put it down to get going on book club book and then will get back to Lone Wolf. It's really good.
Watching basketball at this very moment. Have quite a few shows recorded that we need to watch and clear out DVR space. We caught the beginning of The Help the other day so it's recorded for later viewing as well.
