Handle With Care - Jodi Picoult. I'm loving it!

DVM 06-07-2009 10:27 PM

I am reading Rugrats: The Movie and have been since i was 8... Still haven't finished it. I guess that shows how little i read haha.

Kiwi 07-07-2009 12:26 AM

I'm reading "What Really Matters" (it's not on me at the moment, so don't know the author)

one_step_closer 07-07-2009 11:04 AM

Songs of the Humpback Whale - Jodi Picoult.

ThinkingofRecovery 07-07-2009 11:12 AM

Anyway, I need ideas re a novel to read alongside the other stuff. Any ideas?

Serenade 07-07-2009 07:47 PM

I'm currently reading 'The Shining' by Stephen King as it's one of my favourites and also reading 'Moby Dick' by Herman Melville

Spoons 07-07-2009 09:00 PM

the shining is amazing, the book is far superior to the film , but both are amazing

one_step_closer 07-07-2009 09:11 PM

The Shining is on my 'to read' list :-)

Faustus 07-07-2009 09:27 PM

I have just started Karin Slaughter's new book Genesis

I agree! I mean, i love Kubrick's take on the story but it certainly doesn't come close to the novel. There's so much going on in the book and it's one of my favourites that i could re-read over and over :-D

PrincessVegeta_x 07-07-2009 11:09 PM

I'm still reading Darren Shan's 'The Demonata' series but in one day I've read three books and am on the 8th one, Wolf Island, right now.

mesmerized. 07-07-2009 11:16 PM

I just finished 'Lost in the Forest' by Sue Miller. It was.. okay. I enjoyed parts of it, and parts just really annoyed me, haha.
I started 'Miss Potter' by Richard Maltby, but I'm not liking it. I think I'm going to read 'Vanity Fair' instead.

linder surprise 08-07-2009 02:30 AM

i wish i had more patience for reading. i don't have the attention span to read anything, and at the moment i am only trying to read harry potter.

crazykat 08-07-2009 02:36 AM

A child called It by Dave Pelzer

Spoons 08-07-2009 01:41 PM

im still making my way through harry potter and the half blood prince, its so easy to read its nice for a change

_adreamcometrue 08-07-2009 04:13 PM

I just finished reading Marley And Me by John Grogan... I loved the film so I thought I'd give the book a go and it was awesome!

Now I'm reading The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger.

Benji 09-07-2009 05:36 PM

The Satanic Bible by Anton Lavey.

I bought it for a school project a couple of years ago, but it makes sooo much sense...

Almost got me kicked out hehe =D

ThinkingofRecovery 09-07-2009 08:33 PM

I started reading The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. It may take some time.

AutumnMoon 09-07-2009 08:38 PM

Today I've been given a book by one of my friends. It's called "Pants on Fire" by Maggie Alderson. So I'll be starting this tonight!

crazykat 10-07-2009 07:06 AM

Reading The Privilege of youth by Dave Pelzer

Sunday Mourning 10-07-2009 08:49 AM

I just finished reading "Monday Mourning" by Kathy Reichs.

Devil Girl 10-07-2009 12:57 PM

Just finished Twilight By Stephanie Meyer....wasn't amazing but did keep me reading, a page turner but not an amazing plot etc!

tamobhuuta 10-07-2009 02:10 PM

just finished an abbreviated version of the Ramayana (so i can write it on my personal statement!). it was pretty good but i'm not keen on so much description, i haven't the concentration for it at the moment

mesmerized. 10-07-2009 10:50 PM

I'm reading 'Lolita'. I'm enjoying it, if that's the right word. It's quite good.

silverfaerychild 10-07-2009 10:58 PM

Exactly what I thought when I borrowed my housemate's copy to see what the fuss is about. Is the film better?

silverfaerychild 10-07-2009 11:47 PM

^ not really ^

The Circle trilogy by ted dekker

RenewedHope 11-07-2009 12:14 AM

I just finished reading My Sisters Keeper
I want to go and see the film, but I get wierd about seeing films after I've read the books because it's very rare that the film is as good

I read that and I liked the first half. After that I just got lost. I still finished it but dont think I quite understood it. (^^)

Im on pg 109 of "Odd Thomas" by Dean Koontz. I love it! ^-^/

Serenade 11-07-2009 03:20 PM

^ Dean Koontz is a good writer. I am still reading The Shining by Stephen King but also some short horror stories by Clive Barker which are interesting.

The film is definitely not as good as the book.

Wonderland. 12-07-2009 01:02 AM

I have just read "Cut" by Cathy Glass and "Missing Judy" by Anne Cassidy, both of which I really got into and enjoyed, both which I recommend reading although the first you may find triggering for self harm, suicide and abuse so be careful if you do read it and I have just started reading a book called "Out Of My Depth" by Helen Bailey.

mesmerized. 12-07-2009 01:31 AM

I'm still reading 'Lolita', but I left it upstairs and was far too lazy to go and get it so now I'm also reading 'Testimony' by Anita Shreve. Not really enjoying it much, it's quite boring tbh.

ChocolateMarvel 12-07-2009 02:16 AM

I finished reading a book called The Hornbeam Tree by Susan Lewis last night, it was a really good book at times there was too much details but I liked it. And it influenced a very strange dream last night too!!!

i don't know how i felt about lolita.
i really love the concept and the idea of humbert humbert being the narrator, etc. but i just think that maybe it was too long and some bits were really dragged out and some bits that i thought should have been expanded upon weren't really at all.

mesmerized. 12-07-2009 02:33 AM

Agree about it being too long. I'm a bit over half way through, liking most of it so far. I'll decide what I think when I'm done. I read a book quite a while ago, though, which was like.. the same. I can't remember the title or author but it was blatantly just a second rate copy of 'Lolita'. Kind of irritating feeling like I'm reading the same thing twice, though.

Serenade 12-07-2009 10:17 PM

I've almost finished a collection of short horror/psychological stories by Clive Barker, weird and good stuff!

I.Heart.And 12-07-2009 10:21 PM

Wolverine - Dangerous Games

By (lots of people) Marvel Comics :D

Just read.

sparkle. 12-07-2009 10:23 PM

My Sister's Keeper (by Jodi Picoult) and it was very good, but sad.

~Kaytee~ 13-07-2009 04:47 AM

Change of Heart- Jodi Picoult :)

I.Heart.And 13-07-2009 09:09 AM

I'd be interested to know how that book is, i'm still reading Haunted :-D

Spoons 13-07-2009 07:51 PM

ah you a palahniuk fan?

Serenade 13-07-2009 08:19 PM

Well i absolutely love Fight Club and read it often, i like what i'm reading of Haunted, it's interesting. I am definitely going to check more of his work out and have had Invisible Monsters recommended to me.

Sneckie 13-07-2009 09:11 PM

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince ( for the second time )

sazybel 13-07-2009 09:47 PM

slowly making my way through stephan king's IT very good book will be rereading harry potter and the half blood prince before going to see it wednesday!

Dreaming. 14-07-2009 07:58 PM

Now, I thought I hated the book I was reading - turns out I really enjoyed it by the end. That was The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.

I'm now re-reading Lord of the Flies by William Golding - I read it for GCSE, and studying it so intensely really turned me off the book - but I read a few pages and remembered how good a book it was. So I'm reading it again :)

invisible monsters is a great book, 'birds ate my face' is possibly the best line from abook ever.
