Septimus Heap - Magyk by Angie Sage - This book was recommended by a friend. Her two sons are reading it and she thought it was something I would enjoy since I love Harry Potter. I have read a couple chapters so far, and she was right - it's awesome! I can already tell that I am going to have to read the entire series.
We are Water - Wally Lamb - This is a book club pick, and so far I am really having trouble getting into it. It's not as interesting as I thought it would be.
A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens - I admit, I have been stuck on this book for a while. Normally, I read through Dickens pretty fast, but this one is killing me.
Wicked - Gregory Maguire - This is actually a re-read. I read this book once in college, because a friend thought I would like it. And I did! I am reading it again, because it is just so amazing!
Game of Thrones - George RR Martin - This is another one that's been taking me a while, because it is just so thick. But I am absolutely loving it. GRRM has a way with words that doesn't disappoint.
