Reading book 11 of 'The Wheel of Time' series of fantasy books by Robert Jordan. It's been over a year since I read the others, so am really really lost as theres no reminder of whats happened previously, bah : o

I'm reading The Divide by Nicholas Evans (The man who wrote The Horse Whisperer)
It's good, but could be far better.

I'm almost finished with A Clockwork Orange. Very interesting book, with a very "evil" main character. I love the language Anthony Burgess creates, and the philosophy in it (the novel).

J.K 04-06-2007 01:01 AM

At the moment I'm reading The Rules of Attraction by Bret Easton Ellis and am really enjoying it. It's a very cleverly written and interesting book and I'd really recommend giving it a look sometime.

The Things They Carried by Tim something, I'm helpful. :]

Accidentally Abstract 04-06-2007 12:22 PM

I'm actually reading a book at the moment.. *proud*

I'm reading 'Living Out Loud' - The autobiography of Toyah Willcox.
I love it! Would recommend it to anyone so far!

I read 1984 (George Orwell) last week, thought it was a little disappointing because everyone says it's brilliant...I'm going to read it again soon though and give it another chance!

Manwathiel 04-06-2007 08:34 PM

still reading 'the labryinth' by kate mosse.

Urethra Franklin 04-06-2007 08:40 PM

I'm reading, well a more apt description would be obsessing over John Milton's Paradise Lost.

indiedyke 04-06-2007 08:45 PM

a series of unforunate events which is wicked!!!:-)

happywondering 04-06-2007 09:42 PM

I just read 1985 by Anthony Burgess. The first half of the book is an essay about how rubbish and wrong 1984 is. The second part is his alternative to 1984, twas rather good.

I believe it's Tim O'Brian, my friend read that and loved it, I guess there are a couple out by him?

I just finished Startled By His Furry Shorts by Louise Rennin...? I dunno, I am madly in love with the Georgia Nicolson series and can't wait for the next one to come out!

Emmer 04-06-2007 10:49 PM

Currently reading High Fidelity by Nick Hornby, haven't read enough yet to say whether it's good or not.

Before that I read Don't tell mummy which I think was by Toni Maguire... I really liked that book although it was a sad true story I think the ending kicked arse

On.My.Way 04-06-2007 10:50 PM

One amazing book to read is Why I Jumped by Tina Zahn. It starts off being depressing but by the end it is sooooooo encouraging. And also the good ole Bible is great!

God Bless A.x

snazzy 04-06-2007 11:01 PM

Taff 04-06-2007 11:20 PM

I've just read The Men Who Stare At Goats (quite funny factual story of the US military) and The End of Faith. I am currently half way through The God Delusion.

Daddy's Little Girl - Julia Latchem-Smith

Psiren 05-06-2007 12:17 AM

Thin by Grace Bowman
and before I was reading Vampirates by Justin Somper.

Both very good books, although 'Thin' could be triggering it's also quite insiring (in a good way). I guess with Vampirates you have to be quite young and into vampires, or pirates, or both. :-p

GlitterGirl 05-06-2007 04:39 PM

I'm reading Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult
And I recently finished Plain Truth by the same author.

Smokeh 05-06-2007 06:18 PM

A Million Little Pieces, by James Fray. It's semi fiction, but I'd recommend it because it's a really powerful and good read.

Scar Tissue 06-06-2007 03:40 AM

I'm currently reading The Third Policeman by Flann O'Brien. It's about this guy looking for a black box with lots of money in it but he encounters these three policeman and they show him some crazy stuff.


On my to read list I have: Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens, The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and 1984 by George Orwell.

nowhereman 07-06-2007 05:28 PM

But Inside I'm Sreaming by Elizabeth Flock. It's about a girl in a psych hospital and flashbacks of her life before she went in, it's good so far.

Devil Girl 07-06-2007 08:36 PM

^ I have read that, read it in one night, didn't think it was great but I did want to read it and see what would happen.

broken_up_inside 07-06-2007 08:48 PM

Im reading Damaged by Cathy Glass....not really a big book reader but i completely lost myself in it last night and am half way through. Very good book, but very sad :(

Devil Girl 07-06-2007 09:14 PM

Just picked up The Trick is to Keep Breathing By Hanice Galloway. I tried reading this about 3 or 4 years ago but gave up, think it was due back at the libary, last year I bought it with book vouchers so giving it another shot! I kinda read these books quickly so no doubt will be tell you about it!

froot_loop 07-06-2007 10:53 PM

i just finished Borderliners by Peter Hoag. (o has funny scandinavian slash thingy through it but i couldn't figure out how to do that). it was this really odd story about children who are societal "borderliners" placed as an experiment at a prestigious danish private boarding school in the 70's. it also contains a lot of musings on society, fitting in, and most of all about time. i liked it a lot.

next thing i have to read is War and Peace. for school. NOT looking forward to that.

FlightlessBird 08-06-2007 12:35 AM
