Just started reading Dead Like You - Peter James

I just read 'How to Build a Girl' by Caitlin Moran - it is ****ing hilarious, I would highly recommend if you need some light reading.

Then I read 'Crazy as Chocolate' by Elisabeth Hyde, which mostly enjoyed.

Now I'm not sure what to read next.

t.

Just added it to my wish list, thanks! Hope you found something else to read.

I just started another book from my wish list that I found in the library (yay!) The Soundtrack to My Life by Dermot O'Leary.

wintergirls by laurie halse anderson. it's kind of a trigger book, it's about a girl who has an eating disorder, and her friend, who also had an eating disorder, had just died, and lia (the main character) is struggling with her own eating disorder and self harm.
i like it because it's intense and poetic.

I've read it. I actually somehow ended up with two copies of it, I guess I liked it enough to but it twice! I gave one copy away when I realised.

I need to read that, I've read literally all of her books, including the short story that came before this book.

I'm reading Salty Baby by Orla Tinsley now. She's an Irish campaigner for cystic fibrosis.

I love how it's possible to tweet authors now, it's great. I generally find authors most likely to reply than other celebrities etc.

Just read that and it was gripping. I totally know what you mean, the language really helped you understand the visceral, intense pain that Lia was in.

I agree that it is very triggering so please please be careful if you're deciding to read it everyone.

The Little Beach Street Bakery - Jenny Colgan

I love Jenny Colgan's books. And there is a baby puffin in this book too, so I love it even more :)

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. I highly recommend anything by Sarah.

Is This The Real Life-The Untold Story of Queen. (As in the band, not the other Queen)

MellaNina 22-06-2015 11:52 PM

I started reading Marine Corps Draftee by Eddie Nickels. It's a pretty interesting story about his point of view from being a civilian and becoming a marine.

I've just read Finding Audrey by Sophia Kinsella, and I'm currently reading Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins. I'm a YA junkie, what canna say.

I have just finished reading Shane Filan's autobiography 'My Side of Life', and am now 2 chapters into 'Not Quite Nice' by Celia Imrie

Almost finished My Super Secret Rockstar Boyfriend by Eleanor Wood. It's fun, even though the characters are a kind of frustrating.
