Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding
For once I'm actually liking a book as much as I like the film adaptation

Dreaming. 16-04-2009 11:36 AM

Understanding the Policy Process: Analysing welfare policy and practise, 2nd Ed.

Ok, so it's for my course. It's alright, I guess.

'The Time Traveller's Wife' by someoneorother. My friend lent it to me, I quite like it so far.
'Humanae Vitae: 40 Years On' by G.J. Woodall. Yes, for fun. It's interesting.

Dreaming. 16-04-2009 11:46 AM

^ I quite enjoyed TTTW, but it confused me quite a bit at times

An amazing book, one of my all time favourites =)

Puppet Strings 16-04-2009 03:58 PM

Can anyone recommend any good books for me to read?
I'm out of a reading stage at the moment, and want to get back into reading, but don't know what to read. Sure, I have loads lined up on the shelf to start, but I can't be bothered with any of them.
Something intruiging but not too difficult would be good, as I read around 11pm normally, and I'm aware I'm not being very specific!

HopeRises 16-04-2009 05:26 PM

I'm about to start reading, One fifth avenue by Candice Bushnell.

nuclearnight 20-04-2009 02:57 PM

Currently slowly plodding through Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco, and loving it.

mesmerized. 21-04-2009 12:33 AM

I really, really enjoyed 'The Time Traveler's Wife'. Didn't expect to, but it was good.

I've run out of novels to read now, it's quite sad.

PixieHope. 21-04-2009 11:48 AM

I'm reading The Chocolate Run by Dorothy Koomson :)

i love that book.

i have been reading lolita for about two months now, inbetween uni work. it feels like i am never ever going to finish it.

Dreaming. 21-04-2009 03:21 PM

I'm over half-way through Charlotte Gray already. I love it!

moonlet 21-04-2009 09:27 PM

I just finished 'Lost Souls' by Poppy Z. Brite. It was pretty good, but quite graphic. And there was a lot of homosexuality so it's definitely not a good choice for people who have issues with that.

I'm always on the lookout for a good book, and I was at the bookstore today looking for one. I found a couple that sound good. One is the Daywatch series by Sergei Lukyarenko, and the other is Idlewind by Nick Sagan. Unfortunately - and I seriously hate this - I didn't have enough money to buy either of them. It annoys me when that happens. :/

JumpinJackFlash 22-04-2009 01:42 AM

I am currently reading House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. I have a hard time putting it down, it's that good

JumpinJackFlash 22-04-2009 01:44 AM

Amaryllis 22-04-2009 01:46 AM

I'm re-reading Jane Eyre

EyelinerAndCappuccino 22-04-2009 02:18 AM

Currently reading: To kill a mockingbird by Harper lee. It's for english. it's a pretty good book so far.

I read these two books over spring break:
TTYL- interesting book. written in all instent messeges.
Lush- Natasha friend, also an interesting book. it's about a girls struggle dealing with her aloholic father.

and if i ever get time i'd like to finish twilight. I started reading it but didn't get past the third chapter.

Alone and Scared 22-04-2009 09:40 AM

I'm reading the Eragon Trilogy at the moment, I'm on the last book now, I love them! x

Amaryllis 22-04-2009 07:53 PM

I'm reading Identical by Ellen Hopkinds

Katiecakes. 23-04-2009 09:03 PM

"Sophie's World" by some Finnish man. It's so good and my philosophy teacher reccomended it for revision and it's amazing.

Strawberry.Bananas 23-04-2009 09:06 PM

Last read: Jodi Picoult - Change of Heart.

Now reading: Jennifer McMahon - Promise Not To Tell.

Casper_Fading 24-04-2009 02:41 AM

Just read Bloodhound by Tamora Pierce, and am reading it again (3rd time since i got it... on monday...) now have to wait a year till Mastiff (the final in the series) is realeased. I hate reading fast.

The War Doctor 25-04-2009 01:22 AM

Last read: "The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea" by Yukio Mishima... its now one of my favourite books of all time.

Currently reading: "Tropic Of Cancer" by Henry Miller. Its like a cross between Norman Mailer's "The Deer Park" and Marquis de Sade's "120 Days Of Sodom", except its beautifully written, hilariously funny, and instills in the reader a joy in simply existing (if only for a moment). Not for the faint of heart or prudish though.

Next on the list: "The Plague" by Albert Camus.

TheCon 26-04-2009 01:01 PM

I'm currently reading 'On The Road' by Jack Kerouac. I'm enjoying it. :)

Finally finished Foucault's Pendulum, and loved it :)

and also reading Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones as my partner has been bugging me about reading it and says it's better than the film.

Madness by Marya Hornbacher
A Mind Apart by I forget.

Rodolphus 27-04-2009 01:10 AM

Monkey Taming by Judith Fatallah. For about the fifth time, one of the most amazing books I've ever read. I adore it.

And Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. Which is just fantastic. Really, really well written and fascinating to read, as was the Da Vinci Code.

Dreaming. 27-04-2009 10:49 AM

I finished Charlotte Gray.
I loved it, I absolutely loved it.

I'm now tossing up between reading The Virgin Suicides, The Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Girl at the Lior D'Or or a Focault book.
