Just started reading "The grace of kings" by Ken liu/

it's an epic fantasy (and its been compared to game of throes) but instead of a medieval setting it has an ancient Chinese inspired setting

Petrichor 19-07-2016 09:12 AM

Currently reading Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. And loving it so much!

zombiehunter 19-07-2016 11:45 AM

^I remember there was a tv series based on that years ago, it was pretty good, never read the book though.

Petrichor 19-07-2016 06:43 PM

^from reading the intro to the book, the TV show left quite a lot out. But I've never seen the TV show so I can't compare. The book is fab though, would highly recommend!

Is it good? This is on my list of things to read.

Are they good Puck?

I've got several books on the go at the moment but I'm struggling to get through any of them. I'm reading '26.2' by Julie Welch, it's quite old but it's about different people running the London Marathon, it's quite inspiring. :)

I'm not very good at forming opinions so all I can say is that I thought it was ok. Worth reading I think.

Hi serendipity! I enjoyed the Camino book, her priorities were different to mine but it gave me a taste of what could be if I get to the starting point. The women who ran with Wolves is harder going but I'm sure I'll get more used to the writing style, thank you for asking!

I have tons of books which I have on the go, I flick between each and it gets very frustrating after a while, but then when I sit down to read one book and I fancy another i'll go to that one out of boredom! :eyeroll: As long as you have a book that inspires you that's great! Do you run, or want to run?

Morpheus 09-04-2017 01:25 PM

I really enjoyed The Ice Twins.

I just finished The Quickening by Julie Myerson which was average but an easy read. I need to decide what to read next as my easy book. I'm also reading The Voices Within by Charles Fernyhough but I haven't got very far with it yet, and dipping into Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.

Is that the book where the layout is like social media or email or something? I tried to read it but couldn't get into it.

one_step_closer 05-08-2017 10:00 PM

Inside Alcatraz - Jim Quillen.

Nymphadora Tonks 08-08-2017 12:17 AM

Finished reading The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist. It's a really interesting read and very much like The Handmaids Tale, which I love, similar vein of dystopian future vibe. The book has that perfect balance of stoicness, the positives and negativeness of the new world, the way people adapt to it, how some things are even better for some than before, whilst being worse off for that very same person. All mainly from the viewpoint of one lady, the narrator. Sums up and articulates emotions really well, without it being depressing. It's somewhat lighter/less heavy than THT, perhaps because it's not all doom and gloom depiction and the terror & unknown is not there so much. Everyone is already clued in on the process and have (more) time to come to terms with it. Personally, it's not as good as THT, but ranks higher than George Orwells 1984, which I also enjoyed.

Try Not To Breathe - Holly Seddon.

MoNo 09-08-2017 07:36 AM

The Biocentric Worldview by Ludwig Klages

a book so inherently against current society (in that it pretty much predicted current society) that even wikipedia blacklisted it. seriously. you can't find it on wikipedia, at all. it's not even referenced in the wiki for Biocentrism (ethics), of which this book is practically a guide to. you can't even find it on the authors wiki page.

it really makes you think, what don't they want people to know?

one_step_closer 13-08-2017 04:00 PM

Hallucinations - Oliver Sacks.

MissGranger 13-08-2017 06:01 PM
