I just read a book called Not Without My Sister.
Its about these three girls who were born into a cult and they're constantly struggling with the cult life and are eventually trying to escape from the grasp of this cult..
Its actually a true story and its really sad.

I read "the da vinci code" a week ago, and just read "a thousand splendid suns" by Khaled Hossain. I LOVE IT!

I started reading "Veronica decides to die" yesterday.

I adore that book totally and completely! Khaled Hossain is a genious!! Have you read the kite runner? Its fab too, though i think a thousand splendid suns is better!

Just finished The Songlines by Bruce Chatwin! The travel writing bit was really good, really intresting, its about the aboriginal songlines in Aus, I wish I had read it when I was there! Anyway the downside was these random chunks of quotes from previous travel experiences that he would randomly plonk in the middle of chapters which went on forever! In the end I just skipped those bits...was still worth reading though!

I almost bought that book but instead bought 'Dry' by Augusten Burroughs, which is kind of like the guy's life after the end of 'Running With Scissors' when he's struggling with alcoholism and stuff.

I've just finished Poppy Shakespeare by I can't remember! But if anyone else has read it, could they explain to me what happened in the end? I got REALLY confused!! Overall it was an okay book,, I only got it after watching it on TV. Nothing special though.

I've been meaning to read that for a while - is it any good?

Yesterday I read 'Life Support'. I can't remember who it's by, and I can't be bothered finding out. But it was surprisingly good - I actually couldn't put it down!

I think I might read 'My Cousin Rachel' by Daphne du Maurier next, since I've had it for ages and haven't started it.
