I finished A Certain Age By Rebbecca Ray - it was okay, but nothing great. Considering I have wanted to read it for ages, I was dissappointed!

Also read Eating Disorders: The Path To Recovery - was relatively informative.

Now about 60 pages through Orlando By Virginia Woolf - liking it now, seeing a quirky, funny side emerging.

just finished "go ask alice" by anonymous - I liked it, really took you inside to her world... but I didnt like what happened right at the end
The following content has been hidden - Reason : spoiler


she decided to stop writing in her diary and 3 weeks later she was found dead... at the point when she made that choice to stop writing though she seemed to be in an ok, stable place... I think I found that really hard to deal with..


have just started reading speak by Laurie Halse Anderson - so far am liking it a lot!!!

I Read, "Daddy's Prisoner" and "Scarred" This week they are both really good, but scarred was the best I would defenitely recommend it.

Finished The Cask of Amontillado by Poe the other day, good story but not particularly striking for him. Am just under a quarter through The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, interesting so far.

Snow-In-Wonderland 01-04-2010 07:44 PM

I'm reading 1984 by George Orwell and it's really good.

Wakeful Dreamer. 02-04-2010 04:47 AM

Asura 03-04-2010 10:55 AM

I just finished several french books.

Indiana by George Sand
La Chatte by Colette
Une Mort Très Douce by Simone de Beauvoir

Indiana was good. Despite how horrible I thought La Chatte was, it seems to be praised by critics. Une Mort... is really dense. Ah, gotta love existentialism.

Just read The Stranger (or The Outsider, as my copy is called for some reason) by Albert Camus. I actually really liked it, despite having never heard of him before hand and having no knowledge of his philosophical work. ANNNND I realised half way through that there's a song by The Cure about it :D
Now I'm reading The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. It's okay so far, but his writing style annoys me a little to be honest.

Sunbathing in the Rain, A Cheerful Book About Depression - Gwyneth Lewis.

Devil Girl 04-04-2010 10:18 PM

Just finished Orlando By Virginia Woolf - Was good, though I know I didn't understand it all.....

Dono what I will start now!

Zedebee 05-04-2010 08:16 PM

Just finished 'Somebody elses's kids' by Torey Hayden and loved it, it was one of the best things I've read for a while, one minute I'd be laughing, the next I'd be in tears.
