    I've just started Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini. I read all of her books (17) in the Elm Creek Quilts series and enjoyed them very much. This one seems like more of a non-fiction book about the civil war with some dress making thrown in.

    American Sniper.
    I usually like to read the book first but did not get a chance. By the way the movie was absolutely amazing. More a drama than an action movie but it has both.

    Is anyone familiar with the writing of Jimmy Buffet?
    A guy was telling me about his novels and short stories. I like his music but I am not a parrot head.

    Unnatural Creatures (a collection of short stories about mythical beasts)

    Also lots of comics, started All new X-factor. It's really good but I've already found out its been cancelled.

    That sounds like something I'd love. Who's it by?



    I'm currently reading Damned by Chuck Palahniuk. I'm 80 pages in and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it and if I like it or not. It's a bizarre book.

    Neil Gaiman picked the stories (and wrote one of them) but they're a mix of fantasy authors. Dianna wynne jones is one of the people. Lots that I don't know.

    Then I definitely have to check it out. I haven't read a ton of Gaiman but I've loved what I have read.

    I've read a few of his short stories, Stardust, and Good Omens which he co-wrote with Terry Pratchett who I also adore. If you haven't read it I highly recommend it.

    I love Good omens. It's how I ended up getting into him. I'm a massive Terry Pratchett fan too and have been reading his books since I was 9 (ish).
