I'm Reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I've never read it before and it's really good so far. I only bought it because of the constant mentioning of it on here, ha.

Dreaming. 02-02-2009 01:45 AM

Red Tears, Amy!

And I've read that, and I almost cried. My mum wouldn't let me read 'lucky', becuase she considered me 'too emotionally unstable' to do so, but yeah, lovely bones is emotionally draining.

Spoons 02-02-2009 01:56 AM

ill finish it eventually!

Second Glance - Jodi Picoult. Someone recommended it but I just didn't get into it!
Read the God Delusion before that, which just made me really angry (and I normally read anything). Atm reading The Twilight by...(can't remember, but it's a Russian translation, the third in the Nightwatch Trilogy, not the one about vampires by Meyer) which is awesome x

linder surprise 07-02-2009 07:19 PM

reading "foe" by j.m. coetzee. it's for uni but actually quite interesting. it's the (fictional) "real" story behind robinson crusoe.

Dreaming. 07-02-2009 07:48 PM

Just finished reading Picture of Dorian Gray, which was brilliant!
The ending was good, but it felt that it cut off a bit short... I'd have been interested to see what the outcome of the ultimate moment was, but hey.

made me chuckle, too.

Reading Peter Pan By J.M.Barrie. Bought it two years ago with Peter Pan in Scarlet and thought it was time to look at this classic! But uni starts again tomorrow but hoping I will get into the pattern of an hour of personal reading ever night instead of my head in psychology, management and philosophy books!!!

imnotdead 09-02-2009 12:06 AM

I've just read Scarred by Sophie Andrews. I'm usually a slow reader but I started this book thursday night and finished it this afternoon.

From play.com....
"Growing up, Sophie carried a terrible secret. She was her fathers slave, in the most horrific ways imaginable. At just a few months old she was adopted by a couple that seemed comfortably off and perfectly respectable to the outside world. But behind closed doors, Sophies childhood was a living hell. Her father spent the next decade grooming her for abuse and when Sophies mother left for good, that very night, he told Sophie that from now on she would sleep in his bed. Unable to cope, Sophie spiralled into suicidal misery. She began to self-harm to try and escape the agony. But one day she went too far and at 16, ended up in a psychiatric unit. It was here that she finally confronted the horrors of home and began the painful journey of rebuilding her life. A phenomenally courageous woman, Sophie now works for the Samaritans and helps other young people in need. Harrowing yet compelling, this is a searing and truly inspirational account of overcoming the worst abuse and self-harm."

OMG! I LOVE Gloomcookie!
You should look into Nightmares and Fairy Tales as well. It's wonderful.

Right now, though, I haven't been reading a whole lot. The occasional handful of pages in Megatokyo here and there. Also, I started Down And Out On Murder Mile by Tony O'Neill, which is absolutely wonderful. Or, as wonderful a book can be about heroin addiction.
But, before that, I was reading Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker.
For the most part, it was very entertaining.

Kelly. 09-02-2009 07:20 PM
