idk what i will read next. maybe murakami's a wild sheep chase.

how much of murakami's stuff have you read? Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is the only one that i've got. i thought it was weird, but i really liked it, and always been wondering if it's worth buying any of his other books.

i've read dance dance dance & norwegian wood.
dance dance dance was pretty strange but i liked it. some bits took a little while to get started though.
i really liked norwegian wood. it was more straight-forward plotwise 'cause it's just a love story but i thought it was real pretty.

i'm actually reading james frey's a million little pieces again. i don't know why. i finished lolita this morning & picked up a million little pieces even though i've already read it.

Sonic Dreams 16-05-2009 07:26 AM

awesome. :]
next time i have money with me when i'm near a bookshop, i'll probably have a look at some stuff.

jeez. i haven't read/bought a book in like, a year.
:X

TheCon 16-05-2009 12:14 PM

Finally got round to reading The Da Vinci Code. Loving it so far.

one_step_closer 16-05-2009 06:43 PM

I gave up on the Secret Garden.

I'm now trying to read Don't Sweat the Small Stuff - Richard Carlson.

JumpinJackFlash 16-05-2009 06:59 PM

Just finished Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for about the 3rd or 4th time.

Dreaming. 17-05-2009 09:58 AM

I'm now reading The Girl at the Lion D'Or, and finding it quite hard to get into. It's just typically Seb Faulks; very rich, thick description.

consequential 18-05-2009 12:39 AM

im reading twilight by stephinie meyer ,after seeing the film wanted to read the series
good so far easy to read

Teddy.Lupin 18-05-2009 01:17 AM

Reading Lost Souls by Poppy.Z.Brite, so far, it's been enthralling enough to not be left anywhere and lost.

one_step_closer 22-05-2009 07:45 PM

The Sunflower Forrest - Torey Hayden.

_plastic 22-05-2009 07:48 PM

~Kaytee~ 23-05-2009 08:27 AM

Candide by Voltaire.

PrincessVegeta_x 23-05-2009 11:03 AM

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix - for the fifth time. I really want to give up on it though, it's so hard to read... felt like the author wasn't even trying to write this book, just publishing it for money...

crazykat 23-05-2009 11:11 AM

Handle with care-Jodi Picoult

Frenemies 23-05-2009 01:48 PM

The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath.

Amaryllis 23-05-2009 07:21 PM

I finished The Hogfather last night by Terry Pratchett. I think I've spelled that right. I enjoyed it as a nice story.

And I started on The Stand by Stephen King this morning. It's interesting so far.

monket 24-05-2009 05:36 AM

Just picked up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and I am so excited to read it, haha!

Also, still reading Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs by Chuck Klosterman and Stardust by Neil Gaiman.

Runa 24-05-2009 08:37 AM

Finished "Ninteen Minutes" by Jodi Picoult last night... and am now reading "The Magic Toyshop" by Angela Carter for school.

consequential 24-05-2009 06:47 PM

Finished New moon and starting Eclipse by Stephenie meyer the twilight series

Reverend 25-05-2009 10:23 AM

Lover Avenged, by J.R. Ward.

Or, trying to read it, anyway. I can't seem to do much else but type on a keyboard like a spaz-monkey these days.

-jen- 27-05-2009 12:51 PM

the cloud spotters guide by gavin pretor-pinney. so interesting!

Katiecakes. 27-05-2009 04:19 PM

Just finished "Nineteen minutes" by Jodi Picoult and I nearly cried at the end. Plot twist I didn't see coming!
I really want to read "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". I have a zombie thing going on at the moment :P

nuclearnight 27-05-2009 06:03 PM

Currently reading Miss Garnet's Angel, and working my way through all the Anne Rice vampire chronicles :)

I've just finished "Salem Falls" by Jodi Picoult.

mesmerized. 30-05-2009 12:35 AM

I just read 'The Tenth Circle' by Jodi Picoult. I didn't really enjoy it, it was kindof boring.

Now I'm reading something of my mum's that I picked up, by Nora Roberts. Can't remember the title. It's awful!! Really need to find some good books!

DestroyMe 30-05-2009 01:25 AM

I jsut started Lisey's Story by Stephen King and right now I'm not that far into it because people won't let me read! :| lol

amy.lee.addict 30-05-2009 06:20 AM

Jodi Picoult is an AWESOME author!!! I was crying at the end of "My Sister's Keeper"

I just finished "A Choir of Ill Children" by Tom Piccirilli. I thought it was rather pointless.

An awesome yet creepy book is "Velocity" by Dean Koontz.

I'm also reading the Harry Potter Series (again, for like the fourth time) and "The Wings of a Falcon" by Cynthia Voight and "The Fox Woman" by Kij Johnson.

Eh-he...*coughs* I'm a bit of a bookworm, I suppose... :)

crazykat 30-05-2009 06:23 AM

I have just started reading When daddy comes home by Toni Maguire

I really liked that book, and Duma Key also.

DestroyMe 30-05-2009 08:50 PM

I've heard it was good so I picked it up
on top of that I'm reading Bag of Bones by Stephen King for the tenth time and Bodily Harm: the Breakthrough Program for Self-Injures for the third time.
I'm a huge bookworm

TheCon 31-05-2009 04:23 PM

Finished The Great Gatsby and it was utterly wonderful. Really brilliant book.
Now I'm reading Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, which makes me happy. :)

PrincessVegeta_x 01-06-2009 02:29 AM

Untamed by PC and Kristen Cast.

ElectricSparks 01-06-2009 02:43 AM

I love those books ^ ^ :-p

The Anatomy Of Wings - Karen Foxlee.

GlitterandSparkles. 01-06-2009 03:03 AM

What Happened to Lani Garver by Carol Plum-Ucci
It's a great book; I'd recommend this book for sure
and My sisters Keeper by Jodi Picoult is another fantastic book; if your in the mood for something sad- made me cry.
=]

guiltyinnocence 01-06-2009 03:50 AM

i have just read "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower"! it was actually an amazing book!! definately one id reccomend

iv just started to read "Veronica Decides To Die" by Paulo Coelho.
i read an article about billy talent and they commented on how one of their songs was based on this book n i went to the bookshop n the book was there so i felt i had to read it lol. so far its alright but iv only read a few pages

Jasmine222222 01-06-2009 06:14 AM

Just finished Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult, looks like a lot of them on here... lol

If you want a good book, you MUST read either The Hour I First Believed or I Know This Much is True, both of which are by Wally Lamb. They are excellent.

Dreaming. 01-06-2009 03:50 PM

Currently in the middle of The Kite Runner (it's so desperately sad in parts!), and after that, reading The Poisonwood Bible, which I'm looking forward to.

I'm pretty sure that there's a sequel to The Kite Runner, Jo, which might be worth a read if you enjoy it. :)
It's a book both my mum and gran have read, and one I want to read.

As for me, I've finally started reading again! It's been too long.

I'm reading Notes on a Scandal, by Zoe Heller.

jalita 06-06-2009 03:30 AM

I finished Madness by Marya Hornbacher
Trying to 'get into' Gracefully Insane by Alex Beam (I think)
