Finished 'The Ninth Life of Louis Drax' today - it's really weird but very good, gripping. Would recommend.

Now reading 'A Certain Age' - Rebecca Ray, which is alright so far.

Just finished both American Gods by Neil Gaiman, and The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf.

I've never read a Neil Gaiman book I didn't like, so of course I liked American Gods. The Weight of Silence was ok, pretty good for being the author's first novel, but a few of the characters were disappointing.

I've just picked up Bodily Harm by Margaret Atwood, so that's probably up next on the "to read" list.

Just finished Deliver Me From Evil it was good, though repetitive and at some points very difficult to read.

About to start Bridget Jones's Diary By Helen Fielding - need something light hearted!

I finally finished my book. Am now reading The Paradise Room - Belinda Jones. I like reading simple books while I've got loads of work to do :)



And you say I only hear what I want to.

The ending of 'Living in Perhaps' was frustrating. Am going to read what people thought of it on Amazon!

Am now reading "Baby X" by a child protection policeman based in Hackney. Originally I borrowed it because of the child abuse element. But it's extra interesting because it's set in Hackney - I lived in Bethnal Green for 3 years, and taught in Hackney a fair bit. I also nearly lived in Hackney. I'm glad, so glad, I didn't!

I ordered some books off Amazon last night one of which was the 2nd in the Dollanganger series of Virginia Andrews, which I am quite looking forward to reading. I can't remember what the other 3 were off the top of my head :)

I read all that series last Autumn, Carrie. They're excellent. The 2nd one, if I remember, is really intense. Or it may be the 3rd. One of those two.

My friend was telling me about that book last week or so. I've heard of Flann O'Brien but I've never read any of his stuff. I might give them a go at some stage.

Just read: Fornication: The Red Hot Chili Peppers Story by Jeff Apter. I enjoyed it; it's nice to see a biographer inject some humour into his work now and again, and it got me listening to John Frusciante's horrifyingly beautiful solo work (but that's for a whole other thread).

Currently reading: The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction by Walter Benjamin. It's a quasi-philosophical essay on art theory and the idea that copying a work of art robs it of its value. At least I think so. It's pretty hard to follow to be honest, and I've only started reading it. It's interesting though, when I can actually figure out what Benjamin is talking about.

Next on my list: Shadow of a Dark Queen by Raymond E. Feist. I don't really know why. To satisfy the geek in me I suppose, but I don't typically go for fantasy (with the obvious exception of Tolkien's works). Still, you can't judge a book by its et cetera, so I'll wait until I've read it before commenting on it...

Since Monday, I've read:

Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella.
I love this author, and I've read everything she's written to date, under this name anyway. I thought it was a really funny, original and engaging book, and I was pretty sad when I finished it. I'd recommend it to anyone who's previously read any of her books, or goes for the easy-reading, chilling out before bed type of books. And my Nana's currently reading it. It appeals to everyone. (And my Nana rocks socks)

Ghost Child by Torey Hayden.
Very intense, and extremely well written, but also very emotional and raw in places. But brilliant. Not really one to read just as you're about to sleep or anything.

Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas by Louise Rennison.
It was one of those books that I randomly picked up off my shelf because I've not read it for a while. Incredibly easy to read, and not the most hard to follow plot in the world, I find the series highly entertaining :D

Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot.
Without a doubt one of my all time favourite authors, and I have her entire collection to date. She wrote all the Princess Diaries books and stuff like that. I love the way she writes, her characters are original and oddly relatable to, although you would never think it. The story line is easy to follow, but by no means very simple. I loved every page, and couldn't wait to read the next one once I'd finished it. I then read:

Queen of Babble in the Big City (by the same author)
And it was equally as wonderful. I'm really hoping that she writes another in the series very soon, because I'm pretty peeved that I've finished it now xD Amazing book by an amazing writer. Go read it. Now.

Hells yeah to reading 5 full length novels in less than 3 days.

I'm about to read Macbeth.
But you all know how freaking awesome that it.
*cough* I love Shakespear *cough*




Now I'll play your ghost as my ace, whenever I'm led astray.
But I am actually good, can't help it if we're tilted.
I'm in my right place, don't be a downer.

Macbeth is brilliant. I saw a performance of it in the Helix a couple years ago, it's still the best play I've ever seen.
