I'm actually reading two books right now, She by H Rider Haggard and The Dark Web Murders. I'm almost done with She, and then after that I'm going to be reading Emma by Jane Austen so that I can watch the new movie. I have it all planned out, thanks to this quarantine :)

Hello, I’m currently reading “ L'Homme qui rit” by Victor Hugo. It takes me quite much time to finish. The ones written two centuries ago are never easy to read ^^

I just started on The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne. Sometimes, I like to read classic books just for variety. I like to read different literature to broaden my knowledge.

I'm currently reading Bangkok 8, a mystery novel that follows a Thai cop. I used to live in SE Asia, and I was missing the feel of the region, so even though it doesn't always paint Bangkok in the best light, it does capture the spiritual feel of the nation.

I'm rereading "The Stand" by Stephen King, thought it was fitting with the current circumstances in the world. I've also been listening to the audiobook of "All Your Twisted Secrets" by Diana Urban.

Yes, pandemic fiction has become very popular with everything that's going on.

May I suggest Mira Grant's 'Newsflesh' trilogy?
It's zombies, but not the way you normally see them, and includes a culture that has embraced social distancing due to the virus (and PTSD).
(The author did an amazing amount of research into virology, so most of the science, while set against a fictional virus that causes zombieism, is accurate to viruses as a whole.)
There are losses we don't move past, no matter how hard we try. Some wounds, once inflicted, bleed forever underneath the skin. All we can do is learn to live with them.

I am about to start The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham. Let's hope it's better than the movie!
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Oh, I read that one a long time ago. Can't really remember anything about it except that I didn't like it. Thanks for suggesting, though.

That's a good question. I just finished a book, "No Dark Clouds" by RW Nelson and can't decide what to read next. I have several books on my to-read shelf, but nothing is calling my name. Perhaps a good romance, "The Piano Man" by C Ray Frigard. The first book in this series was great. A little romance never hurt anyone!

Hello! I'm reading "Gilead" by Marilynne Robinson at the moment, but recently finished "The Subterraneans" by Jack Kerouac and would highly recommend it. :D

Hello! I'm currently reading "The Shining" by Stephen King. I have not seen the movie so I'm going in blind. I'm also reading a Spanish book called "La ira de Mexcico" which translated to "The rage of Mexico" so far it's pretty interesting :)
