Finishing Trainspotting and half way through Her Fearful Symmetry. Trainspotting, I think I'm more just glad that I'm almost finished than anything else! Just found it ridiculously hard to read, and whilst I'm sure reading it aloud would help, I normally read it on trains so I can't really, haha. I have enjoyed it though.

Her Fearful Symmetry? It's not a masterpiece, but then, I didn't think it would be, haha. It's perfectly pleasant to read; it's easy and quite a nice idea, although I've only been reading it for a day and I'm already half-way through, haha. I think next I'm going to read The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

"White Oleander" My favourite... As well as "We need to talk about Kevin" Lionel Shriver. It's incredible. A deep read for sure...

A Can of Madness - Jason Pegler.

Dreaming. 29-11-2010 09:21 PM

Finished Her Fearful Symmetry, today finished Room.

Room is amazing, I really enjoyed it. Very powerful, original, and moving. It's done through the eyes of a five year old boy, who's spent his whole life living in one room with his mum, in captivity. It's horrible and moving and just very good. So recommend that :)

Now need something else to readddd.

One Day - David Nicholls.

Not bad, but very predictable. Still quite moving though in bits.

Reading My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult on my iPad at the moment. Have taken to reading books digitally now... it's easier to carry them around. I have 640 books on my iPad! =D

I LOVED it.the book,I mean.I read it in my vacantion in Turkey,where I was extremly bored and it was the best book I could have chosen to read in vacantion.I was hooked on it.It's the only book I've read by J Picoult,unfortunately,because they are so expensive and you can't find them in the library.I don't want to give spoilers,but I'm sure you would want to read it until the last page,it has a very twisted end.

Just finished Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast Of Champions and Slaughterhouse-Five for the second time, both. I just started Ned Vizzini's It's Kind Of A Funny Story because I wanted to read it before I see the film, which starts this month here. I like it, I'm just about done.

At the minute I'm reading; The Tattoo Chronicles by Kat Von D.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - L. Frank Baum.

Ohh Linds, is it good?

I'm reading The Help, which I'm quite enjoying. It's an overdone genre, but it's a good book.

Soviette 03-12-2010 05:08 PM

I'm reading Orwell's 1984. :P I've read a bit of it before, but I've only just got the book myself.
