Slash - Surviving Guns n' Roses, Velvet revolver & Rock's Snake Pit.

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

nowhereman 22-06-2015 02:05 AM

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.

andthisisit 29-06-2015 03:51 AM

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.

Too Shy 07-07-2015 02:40 PM

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

andthisisit 08-07-2015 03:10 AM

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

Morpheus 08-07-2015 05:06 PM

Im reading philip pullman, his dark materials. Started a subtle knife today. Im liking this a lot so far.

And then im reading Bendis run on Daredevil as well but only just started it.

nowhereman 11-07-2015 01:49 AM

I'm too lazy to type out the whole title, but I'm reading this. I got it free on kindle last week, but now its 2.61 unless you have prime/unlimited.

I relate and agree with it all, but she's talking a lot about stigma and how it keeps people silent and that needs to change, but it's actually kind of depressing me because I don't see it changing anytime soon, not in my lifetime anyway. It's good to see things I feel explained though.

Anne with an e 12-07-2015 07:11 AM

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Very interesting.

nowhereman 14-07-2015 03:15 PM

Again, I'm too lazy to type the whole title, but I'm reading this.

nowhereman 18-07-2015 05:47 PM

crossroads 24-07-2015 06:04 PM

zombiehunter 24-07-2015 08:54 PM

finished book 14 of wheel of time and now I'm reading I am legend by Richard Matheson.

Moonlight Princess 24-07-2015 08:58 PM

^How many are there of those? I heard it could take the whole of your life to read the Wheel of Time books!

I'm reading Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase.

zombiehunter 25-07-2015 12:59 AM

There's 14 in total so that's me finished the whole series :-D

Moonlight Princess 25-07-2015 01:56 AM

Oh well done! I legit thought there were like 35 or something!

Too Shy 25-07-2015 02:09 PM

I am now reading 'Sweet Temptation' by Lucy Diamond

nowhereman 25-07-2015 11:22 PM

zombiehunter 02-08-2015 01:18 AM

Finished I am legend and I will move onto "the mystery of fu Manchu" by sax rohmer next.

nowhereman 02-08-2015 07:16 PM

The Secret Circle book 1 and the final House of Night book, Redeemed.

Anne with an e 02-08-2015 11:44 PM

Just finished The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls. Wonderful writer, very interesting. (I highly recommend her memoir, The Glass Castle.)

Sentient Treacle 07-08-2015 09:31 PM

I'm reading Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. Not a very light read. Can't make my mind up about it.

GambitC13 07-08-2015 09:43 PM

Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray(not sure if that was great idea, it's a bit dense!), and the journals of Sylvia Plath.

Wine. 08-08-2015 02:25 PM

Just finished Shock of the Fall 0- it's a brilliant book about a young lad with schizophrenia

I read it for uni, very hard book to read academically.

I'm currently reading Aurora Leigh by Elizabeth Bennet Browning and The Way of the Shadows, which is book one of The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks.

Cassiopia 14-08-2015 10:47 PM

I just started reading Splintered by A. G. Howard.

Kittyenna 17-08-2015 05:27 PM

Witches, stitches and bitches by Shannon page

nowhereman 18-08-2015 10:32 PM

I'm reading Redeemed (House of Night, still), The Secret Circle and 100 Unexplained Mysteries.

Too Shy 19-08-2015 11:19 PM

Coming to the end of Jon Richardson's 'It's Not Me, It's You'

Arienette 20-08-2015 08:46 PM

An unqiet mind by Kay red field Jamison when I can concentrate. It's helping me feel less alone and like someone gets it and has written it for me.

Reading it is more like a therapeutic and acceptance exercise. I'll go for something less close to home next, probably Philip Pullmanns dark materials. I've been waiting years for them to be available on kindle!!!

^^^ and yes shock of the fall is a fantastic book. Heart breaking and heart warming all at once, and such a fantastic book. Legit wanted to cry on the train when I was reading it a few times.

zombiehunter 25-08-2015 09:18 PM

finished the mystery of dr fu Manchu by sax rhomer and now made a start on "the darkside war" by Zachary brown which I bought on a whim while in waterstones

Nymphadora Tonks 26-08-2015 12:23 AM

Have not long finished Misery, my first Steven King novel. Can't wait to give the film a watch, could imagine Kathy Bates playing the main character as I was reading it. Now onto Fahrenheit 451, borrowed from Bellatrix. Love the way its written and its dystopian nature.

nowhereman 01-09-2015 02:14 AM

^^enjoy Stephen King, my favourites (both book and film) are Carrie and IT. I like Misery (both) too!!

I'm reading The Cellar by Natasha Preston.

Too Shy 05-09-2015 09:05 AM

Just started 'The Loveliest Chocolate Shop In Paris' by Jenny Colgan. I love her books, they're so light-hearted and lovely to read. :)

mikey 08-09-2015 09:36 PM

I'm reading The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. It's good but a bit odd...

Nymphadora Tonks 10-09-2015 12:46 AM

Finished Fahrenheit 451 on Sunday on the train just as l was pulling into my destination, it was so good l want a sequel!

Secrets Hurt l've heard they're both good, might find a library here (just moved) and raid the fiction section :)

zombiehunter 11-09-2015 10:39 PM

Started reading "the martian" by Andy Weir today

caughtinadream 15-09-2015 05:24 AM

I'm reading Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. I'm only a couple chapters in, but so far its pretty good.

nowhereman 15-09-2015 10:59 PM

Made You Up by Francesca Zappia, and This is Why I Hate You by Onision. (Who ironically, most self harmers hate)

zombiehunter 25-09-2015 11:39 PM

Finished reading "the martian" the other night and I made a start on "Lanark" by Alisdair Gray today

nowhereman 26-09-2015 02:07 AM

I'm 40% in and I still haven't figured out if I'm meant to be taking this seriously or it's just taking the p**s. I really hope it's the second option. If I can make myself read any more I might find out.

I'm reading The Twilight Saga The Complete Film Archives, which is really cool. Tomorrow I'll start Arthur and The Minimoys.

How to Read Your Cat's Mind by Celia Haddon.

It's making me feel both happy and sad, happy memories but I miss my cat.

Sentient Treacle 04-10-2015 05:38 AM

Crash by J.G Ballard.

Had some great ideas but was too repetitive and I think should have stayed as a short story.

nowhereman 06-10-2015 10:57 PM

Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne.

Next I'll start All of Me by Kim Noble.

I'm reading for mental health week this week, I posted on general about it if anyone is interested.
