Snakes in Suits: When psychopaths go to work.

red_ry 20-05-2012 12:58 AM

The Silmarillion - JRR Tolkien

I blame Blind Guardian for making me want to read this.

one_step_closer 20-05-2012 08:19 PM

The Five People You Meet in Heaven - Mitch Albom.

xxhappydaysxx 20-05-2012 09:16 PM

How to be a woman - Caitlin Moran

Hobbes 20-05-2012 09:25 PM

Homicide - David Simon

Vanished-point 21-05-2012 11:22 AM

Got bored of reading Snakes in Suits too many times, moved onto;

The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R Tolkien, this book looks epic, has well over 1000 pages.

Bird's Nest Soup - Hanna Greally.

I've got this but still haven't gotten around to reading it. Would you recommend it?

one_step_closer 21-05-2012 07:22 PM

Zed, you probably remember I tried to read it before but couldn't really get into it. When I continued with it the second time I managed to get more into it and thought it was worth reading. It's different from her other books as it's more about the woman than the children.

Such a beautiful book! Would recommend One More Day by him too if you like it, one of my favourites but quite emotional actually.

Just finished The Fault In Our Stars ~ John Green (and yes I did cry xP)
Planning to finish Papillon (though its taking its time, 650 pages!) then move on to:

Great Gatsby - Fitzgerald.
To the Lighthouse - Virginia Woolf.
Of Love and Other Demons - Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Therese Desqueyroux - Francois Mauriac.

ChangelingGirl 21-05-2012 09:15 PM

I am currently reading a Dutch book by a girl with depression and self-harm issues aobout her recovery after leaving the psych ward. The author is Charlee Bee for any Dutchpeople out here.

one_step_closer 22-05-2012 06:10 PM

I didn't get hooked on Bird's Nest Soup so i'm now trying to read Busy Body: My Life With Tourette's Syndrome - Nick Van Bloss.

Revolving Door 22-05-2012 07:45 PM

The Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Living with BPD By Alexander Chapman and Kim Gratz

one_step_closer 26-05-2012 07:57 PM

The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox - Maggie O'Farrell.

I don't think it's something that I would choose to read but someone said I should give it a go.

one_step_closer 28-05-2012 03:56 PM

Enjoyed The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, finished it yesterday and would recommend it.

Now reading Mummy Doesn't Love You - Alexander Sinclair.

Amalias 29-05-2012 06:19 AM

Game of Thrones book four: A Feast for Crows. I'm enjoying it, even with all the dramatic character events.

have finished it quite long time ago.

lildarkone 29-05-2012 12:20 PM

All It Took was You - Ali Vali
The Door at the Top of the Stairs - Alison Holt (This book was extremly hard to get through because it's main character is a woman who went through horrific times and surpressed the memories, but you go through the recovery she does so by the end you feel just as free as her)

turnbacktheclock 29-05-2012 06:02 PM

I just finished A Midsummer Night's Dream. Yes, Shakespeare... and I didn't even read it because I had to. I'm an English nerd.

I think i'll add this to my 'to read' list, sounds interesting.

one_step_closer 30-05-2012 05:01 PM

The Amityville Horror Part 2 - John Jones.

I haven't read a horror book for a while although that was mostly all that I read as a teenager.

Stellata 30-05-2012 05:12 PM

Leaving the world, by Douglas Kennedy. Amazing book.

one_step_closer 30-05-2012 06:01 PM

I've heard of that book...what's it about?

GlitterTrashDoll 30-05-2012 08:06 PM

I'm thinking about re-reading The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx. One of my favourite books.

Zedebee 31-05-2012 05:40 PM

^^ Mine too =)

Have finished the first Hunger Games book and just started the second.

one_step_closer 01-06-2012 10:19 PM

Gave up on the Amityville Horror, think i've grown out of horror stories.

Now reading One Born Every Minute - Maria Dore and Ros Bradbury.

one_step_closer 03-06-2012 10:37 PM

Something For the Pain: Compassion and Burnout in the ER - Paul Austin.

Just read Your voice in my head - Emma Forrest

and Lullabies for Little Criminals - Heather O'Neill which was an amazing book.

Now reading Unbearable Lightness - Portia de Rossi

Athiri 04-06-2012 11:47 PM

Finished Jurassic Park on saturday. Really enjoyed it, quite different from the film. Now reading Stuart: A Life Backwards which is depressing but interesting.

delicateandwild 05-06-2012 02:42 AM

i just started more, now, again: a memoir of addiction, by elizabeth wurtzel.

xxhappydaysxx 05-06-2012 08:28 PM

I have so many books on my "to read" list but can only read one at a time or I get all lost, so I'm now starting The Story of beautiful girl by Rachel Simon

NoAngel 05-06-2012 09:07 PM

cut by cathy glass

Athiri 06-06-2012 05:29 PM

Finished Stuart: A Life Backwards, which was wonderful. Now begun the epic tale that is Don Quixote. Haven't attempted anything this size in a long while, wish me luck!

one_step_closer 06-06-2012 06:15 PM

The Last Time I Wore a Dress - Daphne Scholinski. It's a memoir about someone who was put in psychiatric hospitals from the age of 15 until 18 because her family and others believed she wasn't behaving enough like a female...

reikiman 06-06-2012 08:02 PM

just finished lord of the rings and am now reading an autobiography of Chris Moyles. Its not my usual thing, but its funny and light.

Field Of Paper Flowers 06-06-2012 08:03 PM

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, it's so lovely so far and it only cost me 95p. =P

RenewedHope 06-06-2012 11:46 PM

Started reading The Hunger Games last night and am really enjoying it
I've told my brother to hurry up and finish reading the next one since I don't think it'll take me long to finish the first one xD

JDenning 07-06-2012 04:59 AM

About halfway through Call of Cthulhu and other weird stories( a collection of all of the works of) H.P. Love craft.
H.P. Lovecraft I can understand why he has such a following, his short stories make Stephen King books looks like something for children.

Under Observation: Life Inside the McLean Psychiatric Hospital - Lisa Berger and Alexander Vuckovic.

BorderlineJiveQueen 07-06-2012 10:13 PM

Lesbian Crushes & Bulimia: A Diary on how I acquired my eating disorder - Natasha Holme.

Its free on Kindle at the moment. The account of her descent into full on bulimia is mesmerising, I think many on RYL will be able to relate in some part.

Hobbes 08-06-2012 12:58 PM

Does The Noise In My Head Bother You? - Steven Tyler

prolonged_intermission 08-06-2012 02:11 PM

Finished Call of Cthulhu ordered The Necronomicon today, should be interesting

Iloveyouall 11-06-2012 11:23 AM

I'm reading The Vampire Armand at the moment... It's not really child friendly, but it's better than The Body Thief.
~The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice~
