I'm reading the other boleyn girl by phillipa gregory
I was also reading 1984 but that was because it's one of my set texts for english. It's a good book, but I'm getting a bit sick of it though because we've been annalysing it so much.

Passing for normal: tourettes, OCD and growing up crazy.

It's actually ok so far, for some reason I thought it was going to be terrible but I've already learnt a lot and it's not self indulgent at all.

Reading rocks.

Only Distraction 10-06-2008 02:23 PM

Im reading 'The Tenth Circle' by Jodi Picoult.
There are some graphical scenes and some triggering elements to it but I like it.

I just finished 'Thanks for the Memories' by Cecelia Ahern, it was very very good!

destructogirl 10-06-2008 02:45 PM

atm i'm halfway through american psycho by brett easton ellis
possibly the most disturbing book i've ever read.

and i just finished slaughterhouse 5 by kurt vonnegut

beautiful&dying 10-06-2008 04:44 PM

^ Do so, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts!

I love American Psycho, there's so much going on all the time, and like Exquisite Corpse it's truly disgustingly horrible! hee hee!

J.K 10-06-2008 06:34 PM

I'm about 3/4 way through Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.

monket 11-06-2008 03:22 AM

Has anyone read Inkheart?

J.K 13-06-2008 10:54 PM

Just started Rules of Attraction by Bret Easton Ellis again. Want to see will I enjoy it as much as the first time. Then it's American Psycho time :D

twink13 13-06-2008 10:57 PM

Just finished Charly
It is a Mormon book but good all the same.

one_step_closer 14-06-2008 04:07 PM

Nothern Lights - Philip Pullman

(not by choice though, i'm not usually into books like that)

linder surprise 16-06-2008 11:52 AM

aw i'm reading northern lights at the moment too.
but i can't really get into it because i keep thinking about how TERRIBLE the film was.

CoffeeawakestheArtist 16-06-2008 11:56 AM

Read carrie stephen king, way gorey wicked stuff.

beautiful&dying 16-06-2008 12:10 PM

The Life of Hunger by Amelie Northomb
It's about her eating disorder and more widely the philosophical question about hunger in us as humans, such as the hunger for knowledge and experience. It's ****ing incredible. I would LOVE to write something like this one day but she's just too good!

Steel Magnolia 16-06-2008 02:57 PM

Just finished Carrie and now Im reading Silence of the lambs... Again!

Lost-Odd-Sock 16-06-2008 03:21 PM

flowers in the attic - Virgina Andrews

very good

one_step_closer 17-06-2008 02:25 PM

The Virgin Suicides (I've given up on Northern Lights for now)

Automatik Teknicolour 17-06-2008 02:48 PM

The Mermaids Singing - Val McDermid

Very good so far, only been reading it for just over a week; less than 100 pages to go.

BlindSpot. 17-06-2008 03:06 PM

I've just finished The Kite Runner. Such an amazing book, made me cry a little in parts. I haven't seen the film yet but from what i've heard the book should be read first.

The Chocolate Lovers Club - ???

nowhereman 17-06-2008 05:05 PM

The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood.

beautiful&dying 20-06-2008 12:19 PM

It is pretty horrible I agree, although it's nothing compared to Easton Ellis's American Psycho. If PZB was too much, that would definitely be! Although I can't remember him actually eating them.... Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)

I just started Wild Boy (Jill Dawson), about a boy raised with wolves (true story) and brought up the whole nature/nurture debate again, which I am fascinated by. It's a novel but kind of researched and set in a real story. I'm loving it so far but I'm only 50 pages in. I think it has some stuff about autism in it further on and I'm looking forward to hearing her thoughts.

Stellata 20-06-2008 12:25 PM

The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud - Ben Sherwood

DevilzKisses 26-06-2008 12:43 PM

Currently reading...I can't remember.

Just finished reading a set of books by Karin Slaughter. They were good, I really enjoyed them. Wee bit gory, but I really really liked them.
Except thru the 6 books I got all attached to the characters and then one died. It made me sad. Up until that point tho they were really good, I can't wait till the next one.

crazykat 26-06-2008 12:46 PM

Stardust - Neil Gaiman.
I absolutely loved it, the first couple of pages were dry but the story really picked up. Its a really good blend of different fantasy elements. He depicted a great world haha.

Im going to read Howls Moving Castle next.

hardly_evolved 27-06-2008 08:21 AM

All of my SIer friends have read this book, have you guys?

Wasted by Marya Hornbacher

It's excellent, really tragic, funny at times, and you know that it's all so true. It's about a woman who's been dealing with her ED since she was 9. It gives a lot of hope, I think, but in a realistic way.

xbeckyx 27-06-2008 09:00 AM

But Inside I'm Screaming

Psiren 27-06-2008 09:34 AM
