Now I've started The Pact by Jodie Picoult and so far it's just as good as her other books that I've read.

Psiren 25-08-2007 10:08 PM

I recently read a whole bunch of books by Jasper Fforde who I would reccomend to anyone, he's very amusing and the books are well written and well thought out.
I also read most of the 'Undead Series' by Mary Janice Davidson, which are both gripping and romantic, as well as really funny.

Right now I'm going through graphic novels and comic books, mostly Gloomcookie comics. =]

whispers 25-08-2007 11:27 PM

"The Great Transformation - The World in the Time of Buddha, Socrates, Confucius and Jeremiah", by Karen Armstrong.

HopeRises 01-09-2007 11:10 PM

I finished Harry potter 7 and went back to 'passing for normal' by Amy Wilensky- which was quiet good. Now I'm reading 'Thin' by Grace Bowman which is so far really good.

Just about finished Teach Yourself Psychology

Started it over a year ago and just thought I would pick it up again. Still can't get into Eldest so think I will be reading Thin by Grace Bowman next...

Not sure if I will get much reading done now that I am starting uni soon though...hope I still have time to read though!!!

Zedebee 04-09-2007 10:50 PM

At them moment I'm reading 'Betrayed' by Lyndsey Harris.
From what I've read so far it's really an amazing story and it hurts to think that it's actually true. It's a truly moving story and so far not too triggering but I can see similarities to my situation in a a izarre kind of way....

beautiful&dying 05-09-2007 11:52 AM

After the Funeral by Agatha Christie. Crime books rock!

Yume.No.Chikara 05-09-2007 02:36 PM

^^ Yes then do....especially agatha christie ones!!
Am currently reading an interpretation of murder which is so far so good!!

nowhereman 07-09-2007 03:00 AM

Crosses by Shelley Stoehr.

Kallisti 07-09-2007 04:11 AM

I'm in the midst of "The Dark Tower" by Stephen King. It's one of the two best novels I've ever read, ever.

Devi 07-09-2007 05:31 AM

I'm reading Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite, which is a slightly erotic vampire novel, and goddamn it's great.

I've read it about a million times, and it's funny, I never would have read anything by Brite if it weren't for Hannah(Village Idiot) , like four years ago she told me about Exquisite Corpse by Brite, and ever since then I've been hooked on her books.

GO READ THEM!!!!!!!!!

linder surprise 07-09-2007 01:18 PM

i just finished norwegian wood, by haruki murakami. i liked it alot.

i don't know what i'm reading next. maybe the god delusion.

Aphelion 07-09-2007 02:04 PM

I've finished The Secret of Crickley Hall by James Herbert a few weeks ago. It's a ghost story but I loved it.
Now I'm onto The Periodic Table by Primo Levi which was highly recommended by this Uni student I met.
I wanna read The God Delusion as well but I can never get around to it..hm.

Wow, another young Christie fan! I usually feel like an old lady reading her stuff! But really, no onne does books like her! I'd say I've read about a third of her books and none are carbon copies of each other...what an amazing creative brain. I could only dream of it!

The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen.

I've just finished reading The Sinner and Body Double by Tess Gerritsen. I'm now reading Girls' Night In - It's basically a book of short stories from a variety of different women writers, based on fun, sex and violence ... and the occasional alien.
