Haha yeah I think anyone cast as Edward would fall short of expectations, but eh, they could have picked worse.
I want august to come so quickly just so I can read that, but I dont know what Im going to do when its over! Ill be so depressed hahah

362 Belsisle Street - Susie Moloney. Not so good right now but reviews have been good so i'm trying to skip the boring parts.

The Diary of Anne Frank :thumbup:

one_step_closer 16-05-2008 07:06 PM

^^ I keep meaning to read that, I tried to ages ago but didn't manage to get past the first few pages.

red_petal 16-05-2008 07:13 PM

It gets better. I can rarely get past the first few pages of any book, I'm not big on reading but I seriously can't put this down :)
Take care

one_step_closer 16-05-2008 07:18 PM

I'll put it on my list :-D The beginning is quite sweet though, how she treats her diary like a person.

red_petal 16-05-2008 07:25 PM

Yeah, she continues to do so. When she has no one else, she talks to her diary as if confiding in a friend but some parts seem to private I almost feel guilty for reading it :laugh:

this was an amazing amazing book.
i had to quote some stuff from there as well,
i just loved it.


am currently reading
almost moon - alice sebold.

although i've stopped for a bit, because it is scaring the **** out for me for reasons i cannot find.
however i do love sebolds previous two books.

linder surprise 17-05-2008 12:47 AM

i'm still reading middlesex. although i've only started "properly" reading it the past two days, because i've finished uni and i have lots of time on my hands. it's gotton a hundred times better and is really interesting.

i really couldn't get into anne frank's diary at first, but ohmygoshh, it gets truly amazing about halfway through. and so touching aswell.

and today i found & bought the bell jar & lolita in a charity bookshop. pretty much made my day :).

TheCon 17-05-2008 01:03 AM

started the vagina monologues like an hour ago. finished it just now. amazing book.

completely_gone 18-05-2008 12:45 PM

finished reading this morning - Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult and about three weeks ago I finished Nineteen Minutes - same author.

loved them both.

one_step_closer 18-05-2008 01:02 PM

I gave up on 362 Belsisle Street, was very dull.

I'm now reading From the Edge of the Couch - Dr Raj Persuad. I'd recommend it to those interested in the very abnormal side of abnormal psychology.

XxXflowerfairyXxX 21-05-2008 10:30 PM

I've read all the books I have.
I'm reading Russell Brand's My Booky Wook AGAIN.
But that's more because I'm doing my GCSEs and can't be arsed with anything that requires effort.

Lluviazul 21-05-2008 10:47 PM

the metamorphosis by franz kafka

its mysterious and so, so sad :(

i didnt really get the ending though.

Ares 21-05-2008 11:17 PM

Threshold of Fire by Hella Hasse, easily one of the best books I've ever read. It's great if you have an interest in history.

Ugly - Constance Briscoe

Tig 31-05-2008 09:39 PM

'Remember Me' by Sophie Kinsella. It's a very easy read although I was little frustrated with how it developed, still good book though

nowhereman 31-05-2008 10:45 PM

Just finished reading Big Picture by Claire Hennessy, an Irish author. It was very good.

Salem Falls By Jodi Picoult

wigeon 01-06-2008 09:10 PM

At the moment, I'm reading Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk. Strange but addictive.

Steel Magnolia 02-06-2008 06:47 PM

Just finished 'Memoirs of a Geisha'. Amazing book! Im in the middle of 'Atonement' at the minute and I dont think its that great. The movie was brilliant tho!

beautiful&dying 03-06-2008 12:49 PM

I'm reading Exquistite Corpse by Poppy Z Brite, which I haven't read since I was a drunken teenager and have no memory of the plot so I thought I'd give it another go. It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
It's about a serial killer who has escaped from prison.

Stellata 07-06-2008 01:29 PM

It's really good.
It's more than the plot, if that makes sense. :)

Steel Magnolia 07-06-2008 01:37 PM

Reading 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon' by Stephen King again... Its a really nice and sad book..

Jukebox 07-06-2008 02:32 PM

I finally got hold of Chuck Palahniuk's Rant on paperback! Nealy finished it. I started reading it on the train to my girlfriend's a few days ago. It is really good. I have no idea what I'll read after it. Maybe another Chuck Klosterman book. I was reading Sex,Drugs and Coco Puffs before Rant. I love Klosterman's stuff.

I'm reading When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris. Loved his other books, this ones just as good. I agree with the Atonement person, the prose was very purple and flowery, I loved the imagery in the movie more. But some stuff was explained more.
