I'm quite puzzled too. Would have been nice to have a clear explanation about what was happening with him.

Now reading Ju-On - Kei Ohishi.

To anybody that has read 'The Help' by Kathryn Stockett - is it as good as the film adaptation? Would you recommend it?

Rodolphus 19-02-2012 03:55 PM

Currently on with LOTR: The Two Towers, Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix (again) and Have You Seen Her -Karen Rose (again).

I can't stand only reading one book at a time xD

I think I enjoyed them both equally.

Yes! The book is quite good, perhaps a bit better than the movie. I was really pleased with how the movie turned out, though. Both are worth the time.

I am reading 'Crying For Help' by Casey Watson.
It's pretty good. My house mate lent it to me. They also lent me 'Sing You Home' by Jodie Picoult which is my next book to read.

Just began 'Starter for ten' by David Nicholls because i enjoyed 'one Day'. So far it's alright.

Oh and I always have a Harry potter book on the go just because...it's Harry Potter.

I'm currently reading the 'True Blood' series by Charlaine Harris.. Not too sure what I make of it at the minute.

I'm (still) reading Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere by Paul Mason. It's very interesting; unfortunately I have the concentration span of a gnat :sad:

Started
The lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

I should try to actually finish books. From now on I'm only going to start a new book if I finished a book first.

I started reading Rascal by Sterling North today and will probably finish that in the morning. So far I have enjoyed it.

I have some old pony books by Jean Slaughter Doty, Josephine Pullein-Thompson and Ruby Ferguson ordered and they should arrive in the mail soon. Continuing on the theme of children's literature, I'm making my way through Laura Ingalls Wilder's books. I've read bits and pieces and adaptations over the years but I had only read the first two in their entirety. I just finished Farmer Boy so whenever I can get to the library I'll pick up the rest.

Crazy All the Time: On the Psych Ward of Bellevue Hospital - Frederick Covan.

Leni 23-02-2012 08:18 PM

I have purchased The Minority Council by Kate Griffin today, which came in well before it's publication date :-D :hop: Paul Mason is just going to have to wait a while ...

Rafiki 26-02-2012 09:43 AM

'IT' by Stephen King. I'm terrified of clowns, don't know why I'm putting myself through this!!

one_step_closer 28-02-2012 12:02 PM

Screwed: The Truth About Life as a Prison Officer - Ronnie Thompson.

sunshine100 28-02-2012 12:11 PM

I've finally got around to reading the Twilight books; I hate to say it but I'm actually really enjoying it!

Next one will be 'Any Human Heart' by William Boyd

Just started Mort by Terry Pratchett. Something short and funny before I move onto the third Dark Tower book.
