I've just finished reading Cuban Heels by Emily Barr. Now I'm reading Coming Apart at the Seams by Lucy Sweet. It's really good so far.

I'm hanging out for my new book to get here! The Magicians Apprentice by Trudi Canavan... it should get here today or tomorrow! woo!

beautiful&dying 16-02-2009 01:56 PM

The Lost Diaries of Adrian Mole by Sue Townsend. Needless to say, it's very good. I'm gutted I'm reading through it so quickly because I want it to last and last.

Along with Peter Pan I am now reading for uni A short History of Financial Euphoria plus other course books I need to dip into such as Cognitive Neuroscience and Economics By Stephen Ison....oh and more....the joys! But Peter Pan is true escapism!

Just finished 'Coraline' by Neil Gaimen. Now i'm starting on 'Good Omens' by Neil Gaimen and Terry Pratchett. Kind of been on a Neil Gaimen binge ever since I started reading his Sandman comics.

charliotta 18-02-2009 08:37 PM

I'm just finishing Sweet by Judith Birchill, the sequel to Sugar Rush. It's amazing, I loved every word.
And I've just started 'The Guy Next Door' again by Meg Cabot. I've read it a few times before, but I love it all the same.

Agatha Christie - The Seven Dials Mystery. Loved it; really easy to read and I love the way she writes. Before that, The Outcasts of Poker Flat (can't remember who by). Really short, pretty interesting.

Almost Gold 21-02-2009 06:47 PM

Beloved.

I don't recommend it.

Rodolphus 21-02-2009 10:36 PM

Finished The Guy Next Door, now I'm reading...

Adrian Mole And The Weapons Of Mass Destruction! By Sue Townsend. I bloody love it :)

The War Doctor 21-02-2009 10:55 PM

Just read: "Dragonball: Volume 3"by Akira Toriyama (cos I'm just a big kid at heart and I still like Dragonball)

Currently reading: "The Count Of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas

Next on the list: "The Fortress Of Solitude" by Jonathan Lethem

Dreaming. 22-02-2009 01:09 AM

I'm struggling through Middlesex by Jeffrey Eudigenes (I think I've spelled that right?) at the moment.

It's a good book, I'll give it that - it's just a fairly heavy read, with lots of information, and inbreeding to confuse me :)

charlieglasgow 22-02-2009 01:13 AM

just finished 'the perks of being a wallflower' and now i'm starting the metamorphosis by franz kafka.

linder surprise 22-02-2009 01:14 AM

oh i definitely get that jo. the first maybe 100-150 pages were pretty hard to get through but once i got past that i really came to absolutely adore the characters & i read the last 2/3rds in one (long) sitting and ended up really loving it.

Moors 22-02-2009 01:26 AM

Finished reading 1984 fer the buggery knows what time recently, that and 'The Bird Yard'.

I'd recommend both, very interesting, and both very odd at times xD;

Trucktastic 22-02-2009 01:56 AM

Small Favour by Jim Butcher (10th in the Dresden files). Highly recommended! If you like Harry Potter, you'll love these.

aww poor head, take it easy on the reading hun.
You should check out Agatha, her stories are so beautifully written and by the end you're so excited you're just madly turning pages. Try charity shops, really any of her many books would be great to check out.

I am exactly the same! I have been getting better but with uni I never find the time so it takes ages to read anything! Then I pick something up...ahh! I think I will make a list of all my books that I have to read and just get through it!

PrincessVegeta_x 26-02-2009 10:06 AM

Currently reading a book by Freud for my coursework... I can't remember what it is called.

I'm also reading Wolf Island by Darren Shan (again), for fun.
