Monket, I completely agree with you on the stereotypical tattoos front. I haven't read the book but you couldn't really get more stereotypical than that apart from having a "mum" tattoo really but even then, that's more chavvy.

I havent finished it yet but i'm in the middle of Angelology by Danielle Trussoni, its a bit odd and not usually the sort of thing i read but its quite good!! Its slightly confusing at the start though and a little hard to get into but when you do its brilliant!!

I also just finished Plain Truth by Jodi piccoult :)

Recently finished If on a winter's night a traveler, which was really weird but quite good. Started reading Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep now, which I'm bloody loving.

Still reading Les Miserables too, but that's on the back burner for a while.

House Rules-Jodi Picoult

I am reading The Cupcake Cafe - Jenny Colgan.

Really enjoying it. There's nothing challenging about it whatsoever, but it's just a 'nice' book to read and sometimes that is very very necessary!

I watched the season finale of the TV adaptation earlier today, and I'm kicking myself for not having read the book first. I really want to read it now.

I can finally post something here that wouldn't be a Uni book...... Obernewtyn by Isobelle Carmody. =] It is amazing.

that's the reason I started reading it lol. I bought it after the 3rd episode and wanted to finish it before the season ended, but life got in the way so not finished it yet

I finished The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson a few days ago and I would definitely reccomend it. The author is awesome. Of course there are graphic descriptions but if you can deal with that, totally worth reading. After that, I'm not sure I can ever find a book that will appease me.

Reading Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson. It's interesting and funny, especially since a lot of the references are fairly outdated since it was written almost 20 years ago. Enjoying it.

Started reading "Cut" by Cathy Glass today. First one of hers that I've read :)

monket 24-06-2011 09:42 PM

Finished The Girl Who Played With Fire, but I don't have the last book yet, so I started Sabriel by Garth Nix instead :)

Recently finished Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? And bloody loved it. Favourite book I've read recently.

Now reading A Clockwork Orange - it's the kind of book I regret watching the film of before I saw the film, as all I can hear when I read the book is Malcolm McDowell's voice! But I like it - I understand Burgess' complaints when the book turned into film, as it visualises a lot of the subtle but smart violence.

Mummy Told Me Not to Tell - Cathy Glass.

Fortunes Rock- Anita Shreve
Sea Glass- Anita Shreve
Light on Snow- Anita Shreve

Both were beautifully written. I choose books that calm and occupy my mind without adding to the horrendous dreams and thoughts I struggle with. They might not be to everyones taste, but I find them just brilliant.
