Still reading The Shining by Stephen King, one of my absolute favourite novels.

PearlsNY88 03-09-2009 02:11 PM

Just finished "Geralds Game" by Stephan King. Deffinently one to pick up, Misery will always be my favorite though. Another fav author of mine has to be Chuck Palahniuk, I've read a few of his and boy are they fantastic. At the moment i'm going to start "Diary (Novel)" by him.

The History of the World in 10 and 1/2 Chapters.... its fiction, kinda weird, each chapter is sorta separate, but they have themes, and it doesn't go in order... very creative though. I love it.

'Pride and prejudice and zombies' by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith.
Really liking it - I normally find Jane Austin a bit dry but the addition of zombies gave it the kick up the bum it needed!

I much preferred the original one. This version just seemed very dry and the zombie sections were not written into the storyline very well at all, I thought. Glad you are enjoying it.

I am reading Persian Fire by Tom Holland. It's a history of the expansion of the Persian Empire but in a novel style
