What Are You Reading? - #2

I am now reading 'Sun and Shadow' by Åke Edwardson. Pretty good swedish detective book. :D But not as good as Henning Mankell, of course. ;) The detective in the book has the most stupidest NAME EVER 'Winter'. And I hate the way they try to make winter sound warm, they've got a big layer of snow outside and they're saying 'oh, it's not very cold this year'. Hmpf. :rolleyes: Pfft, nordic people. :p
I am reading a book called, "Fiela's Child". Tis very interesting and all about this white kid who lived in the aparteid era. He grew up only knowing a black woman as his mother. Tis very interesting and all about how he returns to his 'real' family. Whcih turns out not to be his real family after all. Very sweet.

Sorry, rambling. :p
Today I borrowed from the library Arms of Nemesis by Steven Saylor,it's the second of the series of historical mysteries featuring Gordianus the Finder and set in the ancient Rome of Cicero and Caesar.
"As the Spartacus slave revolt rages through Italy, Gordianus is summoned to the Bay of Naples by Rome’s richest man, Marcus Crassus. Two escaped slaves appear to have murdered their master...and unless Gordianus can prove otherwise, every slave in the household will be slaughtered in retribution".

It's the first book of this series that I read,I hope it's ok.
I just finished To Kill A Mockingbird, which I was reading for English class. I loved the book, I can see why it is a classic. I'm almost finished with A Painted House, so far it hasn't been wonderful but still enjoyable.
I'm reading again "Band of Brothers" by Stephen Ambrose.
I like that book and also the mini series! :)
I'm reading Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul: The Real Deal and i'm also reading Five Days of A Ghost for my Language Arts class.
I have such bad ADD when it comes to reading, Im in the middle of 3 different books :lol:

Star by Pamela Anderson
Wicked by Gregory Maguire
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

But if I can find it in my garage, Im planning on reading The 16th Round by Rubin Carter (for the 10th time).
A few days ago I finished Indelible by Karin Slaughter. I have to say, out of all books I've read in the series so far, that one was my favourite. I loved the flashbacks, they were done very well and I just couldn't put the book down. Very happy bunny after reading that one. :)

I will say also, that something about Lena is bothering me a little (this goes back to A Faint Cold Fear). I won't go into details for those that haven't read the books and I'm probably reading a bit too much in to it, but hopefully it will become clearer in the next book. :)

Anyway, I brought Faithless today, so I'll be starting that one soon. :D
