I am contemplating what to read.....I have a MASSIVE 'to read' pile/list! I am thinking The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest By Steig Larsson or Bad Science By Greg Goldacre

I just finished reading The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.
Just started reading Ant and Dec's book.

Twilight again. I should find better things to read really.

Reading the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Just finishing the second book of seven. It's amazing. Totally different to what I expected (in a good way). Really recommend them if you're into fantasy / horror.

Catch Me When I Fall by Nicci French.

'Without Conscience' - Robert Hare. It's about psychopathy, it's actually very interesting.

^^ I think I read that book at uni.

Thirteen Moons - Charles Frazier.

Its technically about a character who is adopted by Native American Indians as a 12 year old and his life.
But more generally it is about life, love, change and growing old.

Beautiful book.
Charles Frazier also wrote Cold mountain which I think is also a film so I'm going to read that too.

I am re-reading American Psycho after I watched 'The Machinist', only a tiny little bit of a leap. Then I'm onto more Patricia Cornwell books, only recently discovered her, I'm wondering where she's been all my life!

I'm just about to start reading "Adrian Mole: The Prostrate Years" - Adrian Mole books are like a comfort blanket to me. I love them.

I started to read Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar last night and the style is much better than I thought it would be. Off to read some more now :)

I'm reading textbooks for uni now, and have no time for anything else. Unfortunately, we haven't started our interesting reading yet.

The last book I read though was Wasted by Marya Hornbacher. Very moving. I'd reccommend it.

I have recently read

Good girls do Swallow- Rachael Oakes- Ash
To Kill a Mockingbird- Harper Lee

And now I'm reading Deadly Decisions- Kathy Reichs

Sparky! 24-08-2010 04:20 PM

^ Was 'Good Girls Do Swallow' good? I keep meaning to read it.

Now reading 'Listening to Prozac' - Peter Kramer. I read half of it ages ago but got distracted by other books. It is quite fascinating, though.

I didn't like it. I guess it depends what mind frame your in when your reading because I found it kinda pro & I'm pretty sure that wasn't the intention.

Hmn. I find a lot of ED books that way although I'm sure they don't intend it.. Shall probably read it at some point though!

I'm about halfway through 'Talk to the Hand' by Lynne Truss. It's vaguely amusing in places but I'm not really enjoying it.

Breifly_Tragic </3 25-08-2010 01:00 PM

I am currently reading:

I Am What I Am - John Barrowman <3 Because I love him.
A Fashion text book personal growth in that area.

My to read list is getting a bit longg tbh. I might have to stop buying books and just read them

one_step_closer 25-08-2010 03:10 PM

More Blood, More Sweat, and Another Cup of Tea - Tom Reynolds.

Sparky! 26-08-2010 01:49 PM

'999: True Stories of my Life as a Paramedic' - Lysa Walder. Really enjoying it so far.
