I liked the film Into The Wild so tried to read the book but found it hard going and gave up on it.

I liked Eleanor Oliphant.

Will put A Song For Tomorrow on my to read list.

I've read When Rabbit Howls two or three times now. I'm still not sure how I feel about it.

Lucifer's Hammer by Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven.

Bought it 6 years ago when my concentration started to get **** but started reading it again yesterday and I'm 100 pages in and enjoying it.

I gave this 3 stars (liked it).

Now reading Mini And Me - Michael Cooper.

one_step_closer 12-08-2018 03:58 PM

I gave up on Mini and Me, too much hard going for now. Started reading something I wouldn't usually choose but thought it might be nice to read something very lighthearted and cosy.

So now reading: Coming Home To The Comfort Food Cafe - Debbie Johnson.

Stopping with The Comfort Food Cafe book for now because I have to read the book for my reading group which is:

Blood, Salt, Water - Denise Mina.

MissGranger 14-08-2018 08:05 PM

Career of Evil - Robert Galbraith

I gave this 3 stars (liked it). I did like reading it but I don't think I was following what was happening much. There were too many characters and they were sometimes referenced by their first name and sometimes by their surname so I couldn't remember who was who.

Continuing with Coming Home To The Comfort Food Cafe - Debbie Johnson.

one_step_closer 22-08-2018 01:20 PM

Also reading This Is How: Help For The Self - Augusten Burroughs. I'm not really reading it as a self help book but rather because I like Augusten's stuff.

Bellatrix 24-08-2018 11:08 AM

I'm reading the Birthmarked trilogy. Really enjoying it and I'd recommend! (TW for questionable treatment of pregnant women and babies - no abuse - and abortion)

I've nearly finished it. Quite liking it. It's an uncorrected proof copy I have so don't know how much of it is the same as the published book.
