I will admit, im a little dissappointed with it, perhaps why its taking me twice as long to read Thin.
Yes wasted was a lot better I think, Mainly because it showed what an eating disorder could put you through, but I guess a lot of people will agree with the story in Thin, never been admitted etc. but I felt bits were missing from her time in collage where she was trying to eat 'normally' etc. Her recovery wasn't very clear I felt. But it was her story which is all that really matters I guess. Nice writer though, I like the stle even if the plot is not as intense as other books.

I have read this book, as not overly keen on it, but maybe that is because I expected more as it got lots of good reviews.

You made up your mind to torture mine!
If you read a scar like a book, you will relise the story in which you over look
red ribbons were weaving
upon the young girls skin.
a trail of red weaved deep,
caused by pain from within

Have you got into it well?
I'm about half-way through it, and enjoying it so far. I guess 'enjoying' would be the wrong word to describe it, but I just loved her style of writing.

Today I finished my Chris Brookmyre, it was amazing and I recommend people try him out (look in the crime section at your local library and book shop) and I started another Aggie Christie, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. It's good so far but isn't all her stuff?!

Finally finished 'Thin' last night, I actually prefered it to wasted.. tbh I thought wasted was pretty rubbish. I think it was quiet a good book, if your not really a mature reader and I saw myself so much in it.

Now starting atonment wohoo.



Life can be beautiful if you let it.

Purely down to the fact that you guys all go on about it, and that my uncle happened to have a copy in a box of books he's storing here, I am currently reading The Bell Jar. :P
It's not really what I was expecting, to be honest, and although I am almost half-way through I still don't know what I think of it! Haha. There are certain sentences, and paragraphs, which I really like, but the book as a whole... I'm undecided. x



I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright

Just finished reading Out of the Dark by Linda Caine, it was so good (and includes self harm), now I'm reading Sweet by Julie Burchill, the sequel to Sugar Rush (which the tv series was based on).

I've just read The Picture od Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. It was a little dry in places, but otherwise beautiful.
And to Shadow Z, I read Clockwork Orange recently too. Amazing. x x

I'm currentely reading 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell. Its not bad.
I just finished 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time', which is written from the P.O.V of a 15 year old boy with Austism. Fantastic read, very insightful.

'To the Lighthouse' by Virginia Woolf. Good so far :)
and 'T.S. Eliot - a Study in Character and Style' by Ronald Bush. Which is kindof for my English Dissertation, but is fun anyway.
'The Great Transformation' by Karen Armstrong and selected other books about religion and such, when I have time.

I can never stick to just one book, haha.

just read harry potter books 2 through 7 over the past 3 weeks. i read the first one years ago before the first movie. then i just lost track of them. it's been a crazy few weeks. potter dreams.

also i just read MAKE LOVE: THE BRUCE CAMPBELL WAY by BRUCE CAMPBELL.

and

BODIES IN MOTION, BODIES AT REST by THOMAS LYNCH.

my tv broke. i've been reading a lot.




my whole life has been. running with the wind. and playing with the cowards. it’s so hard to see. i’m fractured within. a poet in a window. we’re bastards and thieves. we’re lovers and saints. we’re holding on to mourning. and in the shadows i will be. until the sunlight melts away. until we tire of murder...fill me up with love...say goodbye when you leave. remember to breath. remember to listen. it’s getting harder to be. the son you want of me. the son i’ll never be.
