Heh, well yes. I'm like halfway through and kind of enjoying it though, 'cos it's easy to read and just pretty stupid really. Not exactly a 'good book' though!

Just finished Prozac Diary - Lauren Slater. Now reading Bedside Stories - Michael Foxton.

Finished Eight Stories Up: An Adolescent Chooses Hope Over Suicide By Dequincy A. Lezine today. Was informative, but having read 4 others in the series a lot is repeated, plus aimed at americans so lots of mention of insurance etc.

Have read the first three stories out of Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams By Sylvia Plath - I like it. In some ways they are better than The Bell Jar, in others they are not. But will be dipping in and out of that book I think.

Going to start Impulse By Ellen Hopkins tonight I think!

'Battle Royale' by Koshun Takami - excellent, but it's put me off the film, there was so much left out!

one_step_closer 12-03-2010 06:40 PM

Spiral - Koji Suzuki.

I love the film too, the book is an enjoyable read I felt.

Would you recommend this? I have read 'Ring' and quite enjoyed that, it had a brooding atmosphere.

I am currently reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

Spiral is a good book but I got v.confused lol.

I finished the Kite Runner last night, it was so good. I dunno what to read next :(

mikey 13-03-2010 09:06 PM

I really enjoyed the Kite Runner.

I have nearly finished 'Nation' by Terry Pratchett, and next I am planning to read 'The Testament of Gideon Mack' by James Robertson, for the third time, as it's one of my favourite novels.

Serenade 14-03-2010 01:37 AM

I bought that Gideon Mack one recently mikey, the blurb intrigued me.

And I will probs get onto checking out Spiral eventually too, I'm sure his trilogy has a theme of water or something, Ring, Spiral and Dark Water.

I'm currently reading Angels and Demons by Dan Brown.

Just finished reading The DaVinci Code, which was amazing, so I'm expecting this book to be pretty similar if not better xD I've saw Angels and Demons on movie and it was pretty awesome.

I thought the last book of the trilogy was Loop, Dark Water was completely different.

I finished Impulse By Ellen Hopkins - I enjoyed it, and was nice to read something slightly 'different' for once, but did lack substance.

Also read today Monkey Taming By Hudith Fathallah - I enjoyed it and it was a quick and easy read. One of those eating disorder books that reminds you how quickly you can plunge into anorexia without realising it but that it is a battle to climb back out of it. It was aimed at teenages though so again did lack substance. But a 'nicer' eating disorder book compared to some that I have read.
