I have also been trying to get through all of the house of night and Vmapire acadamy books. I really like them.

I'm reading House Rules by Jodi Picoult - I really should stop reading her books, because they only make me mad.

Is House Rules any good?
I'm not a big Jodi Picoult fan (I've only read the suicide pact one + my sisters keeper) but this is about a Aspergers boy isn't it? And my brother has aspergers so I was thinking of reading it.

I'm reading Heart of Darkness - Joseph Conrad
Very good, but very old fashioned because its over 100 years old, so you have to concentrate.

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

oh oh oh oh....I bought 6 more books, and found a load of others that I bought ages ago and then lost before I read them. I'm going to be busy!

Current read: Saturday - Ian McEwan.
Its alright. Not amazing. But then I'm not that far in yet.

Do they make you mad at the injustice of the world, or do they make you mad because of her writing style? The way she structures her books annoys me. The story ends up dragging and then it's all summed up in a few pages. Her books are very thought provoking, though, but if you read too many of them I think they'd become very tiresome.

I'm reading English Passengers by Matthew Kneale for English wider reading. It's alright, but I can't seem to get into it :\
I started The Other Hand by Chris Cleave yesterday and I really like it so far.

Finished The Long Song by Andrea Levy. Really enjoyed it, far more than I thought I would.

Now attempting to read Far From the Madding Crowd, which is hard going but I think once I start to get into it it'll be good.
