how come there aren't more books about MMA fighting? It is a very popular sport nowadays. I enjoy learning new skills and new ways to make people TAP OUT! Sports are a very good way for the youth of our country to stay fit and stuff.

I'll start! I just finished teen books "Three Black Swans" by Caroline Cooney, and "The Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters," by Natalie Standiford. I'm also in the middle of re-reading Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series (for like the third time, love them!).

I am totally hooked on the John Flanagan Ranger's Apprentice series and am now reading Halt's Peril. Halt has just been struck by an assassin's arrow and Will and Horace have to figure out how to save him. This is number 9 in the series and the author is not getting tired at all. i'm hooked til the end!

I'm reading Patrick Cave's Sharp North. Just finished re-reading Julie Ann Peters' Keeping You a Secret.

Ooh, Kate -- I love the Rangers Apprentice books too! I have Halt's Peril in my stack of bedside books to read soon!!

I am just finishing Pop by Gordon Korman. It's a lot about football (plus a hot cheerleader character) so I wasn't sure I'd like it since I am not into sports. Instead I've gotten very into it - almost feel like I've been playing football myself! But the story has a lot more to it than football - like being a new kid in an un-welcoming school and doing what you know is right even when you will be in SO much trouble. I almost hate for it to end because I really like Marcus, the main character. I want to find out what happens but I hate to say goodbye. I have just started Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier. I'm reading it because someone told me it was her absolutely favorite book ever. I've only read a few chapters but I'm hooked. So far it reminds me of Libba Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty series.

I am almost finished with Catching Fire. I love, love, love it! I read Hunger Games right before and I hope to dive right into Mockingjay. Prior to this trilogy, I read CRANK, by Ellen Hopkins. Written in prose, I didn't know if I would like it but it was a quick read and very engrossing. It was edgy and dysfunctional and I plan on following up with Glass. I have the new book, Forge, by Laure Halse Anderson on my desk and plan on starting it this weekend. It is the sequel to Chains which I thought was a fantastic Historical Fiction read. So many great YA reads.

right now i am reading a book about mma fighting but i forget what it's called

I am reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury right now. I'm reading it for school but it's a really good book!! It's quite interesting and kind of futuristic.

Anyone reading "The Lost Hero"? I got it signed by Rick Riordan and I can't stop reading it!

I started Hothouse by Chris Lynch, but I'm not loving it, so I don't think I will finish. I just finished Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin and enjoyed it.

Brock -- thank you for the suggestion! I will see what I can do to get some more MMA books into the Sonoma County Library collection.

(and, WOW! we have Brock Lesnar posting on our blog!)


Most know me as a popular MMA fighter but I am also a fan of local library blogs. This is my second or third favorite behind the one that I follow in Minnesota, my home right now.
I think maybe you need an MMA FIGHTING/CAGE BRAWLING! Program at your library. Like, bring in some local CAGE BRAWLERS and have them talk about the books that helped lead them into a career in CAGE BRAWLING!
For me it was The Movie Bloodsport's novelization. Do you have that in the Sonoma County Library system?
