I got Twilight for Christmas and I absolutly love it :-D I have only ever finished two books before, I have never really found any books that I really liked so I gave up trying to find one. I got the first chapter of Twilight free with a magazine a while back and after I read it I had to get the book.

I found it really, really difficult reading. It was a fascinating story, but yeah, effort! Are you also reading The Colour Purple? I loved that book.

linder surprise 06-01-2009 02:47 PM

Is it any good?

I've finished Count to Ten by Karen Rose. It made me sad that it'd ended.

I'm now debating between re-reading Lord of the Flies or continuing with Cecelia Ahern's new one.

Currently Reading...
I'm currently reading the second of Phillip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' trilogy, 'The Subtle Knife'. I read the first one, 'Northern Lights' just before Christmas, although I haven't seen the film ('The Golden Compass').

I liked Northern Lights a lot (and a lot more than I expected to), and am finding The Subtle Knife very engaging - I keep having to put it down and go to sleep before I want to - early starts for work in the morning!

GlitterGirl 14-01-2009 02:53 PM

I'm currently reading The Naming Of The Dead by Ian Rankin.

Took me to at least Chapter 2 before I was really into it because the story is set around the time of the 2005 G8 Summit in Gleneagles, which I didn't really know a whole lot about it so just found it tricky to enjoy to begin with. But now I'm nearly finished I'm really enjoying it and can't wait to find out the ending!

crazykat 14-01-2009 03:00 PM

I am reading Sweetie by Jenny Tomlin
