I loved Chaucer's Canterbury Tales when I was at school. We did it for Higher English, I think.

I just read Fast Train Approaching by Steve Walter
It's all about mental illness, and what it was like for him during his breakdowns - Very interesting read

Very nearly finished Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh, just a couple of pages left to go. I still can't believe I've only just got round to reading it, it's been sitting on my shelf for years. Shameful. After that I'm gonna start the Grapes of Wrath methinks.

Yeah, I thought it was quite good. It's worth reading anyway, although it isn't centred around her self harming despite the title.

I just finished reading The Secret Diary of Dimented Housewife, by Niamh Greene. It's okay -not that great but not bad either. I was engrossed enough to keep reading but found the main character rather monotomous - she kept overreacting to every situation, and kept using the line 'I think I shall write to ----- to commend/complain about such and such' and it got a little old quickly. But it was an average read - good if you use it as a time waster etc.



"John, being brave is going where no man has gone before and with Lizzy Stark, that is NOT what you'll be doing!" - Aunt Polly.

I told him I was going to betray you, and betray Lyra, and he believed me because I was corrupt and full of wickedness; he looked so deep I felt sure he'd see the truth. But I lied too well. I was lying with every nerve and fiber and everything I'd ever done...I wanted him to find no good in me, and he didn't. There is none.

Something has changed within me, something is not the same, I'm through with playing by the rules of someone elses game. Too late for second guessing, too late to go back to sleep, its time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap....
Somethings I cannot change, but till I try I'll never know...

Big hugs to all my friends on here, thanks for your constant support - love you guys

To Kill A Mocking Bird is very good. I want to see the film aswell though, but a classic WORTH reading.



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
