I loved 'Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake' until the brother started turning into a chair (and other inanimate objects). That was taking 'magic realism' a little too far, I reckon!

I'm taking an intellectual hiatus and reading Diane Chamberlain books - I loved 'Fire and Rain'. I also read Katie Piper's 'Beautiful' because a friend asked me t, I never normally read misery memoirs) - and it was fantastic. I was in tears.

Petite Souris 03-12-2011 04:04 AM

I just started reading Little Women, it's good so far.

jenjens79 03-12-2011 10:02 AM

I love Little Women. But you need to read Good Wives straight after as most of the films combine the two!

I didn't know that! Thank you. I'll try to find it in my library!! =)

The War Doctor 08-12-2011 03:45 PM

Last night I finished Homer's Odyssey. It took me forever. Seriously, I read Atlas Shrugged, a 1100-page monolith of a book, in half the time it took me to read this. I liked it, but I have a feeling I'd prefer a more straightforward translation than the flowery, show-offy one I read.

Currently reading The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King. I'm about a third of the way through it, and I'm enjoying it so far. I have two complaints though: the protagonist is a nine-year-old girl, and I think King made her a little too intelligent and mature to be believable. Yeah, she breaks down and cries a lot, like any nine-year-old would when lost in the woods, but her thoughts and inner monologues are too "grown-up." It's hard to take seriously. The other complaint is more minor, and a little petty and nerdish of me: Trisha (the protagonist) loses her balance and rolls down a rocky hill. Her Gameboy breaks, but her Walkman doesn't. Gameboys are far more durable than Walkmans. Hell, they're more durable than most buildings. I call bullshit.

Deviant: The Shocking True Story of Ed Gein the Original "Psycho"

LegoGirl 08-12-2011 08:59 PM

Sharp objects by Gillian Flynn - it has SI in it but so much more - brilliant book I couldn't put down.

Tig 08-12-2011 09:11 PM

One Step Closer ~ you are like me, loving your books! x

one_step_closer 09-12-2011 08:12 PM

^ Yep! :-) I've given up on the Ed Gein book though. Now reading The Crying Tree - Naseem Rakha.

i5ab3l 09-12-2011 08:34 PM

Just finished Breathing Underwater by Alex Flinn. Such a powerful novel about abuse, it's one of those books where you think about it for a long time afterwards.

one_step_closer 10-12-2011 06:05 PM

Firestarter - Stephen King.

Antebellum 11-12-2011 01:14 AM

I'm reading The Walking Dead: Rise Of the Governor by Robert Kirkman.

I'm about 2/3 the way through and I think its a half decent read if you like books about zombies and blowing peoples heads off!

Antebellum 11-12-2011 01:15 AM

Gave up on Firestarter, now reading The Kid - Kevin Lewis.

Now onto The Perks of Being a Wallflower :)

xxhappydaysxx 11-12-2011 02:47 PM

ps one step closer is the crying tree good? I keep seeing it and never sure weather to invest or not!

one_step_closer 11-12-2011 04:31 PM

I didn't get past the first few chapters, just couldn't get into it but it might be just me as i've been really picky with books recently.

Rafiki 11-12-2011 05:16 PM

'A Game Of Thrones' by George RR Martin, for the second time =]

Yea it is amazing. I couldnt put it down when I started it. I cried buckets at the end.

bloodyfool 12-12-2011 07:12 PM

I'm reading Never Have I Ever by Sara Shepherd. It's the second book of a series. The first book finished too abruptly, the last chapter didn't even conclude, just came to a stop. It left me desperate to read the second book, which wasn't published until the end of September this year, by which time I had begun another book, so I've only now got round to reading the second one. (Ramblings over)

one_step_closer 12-12-2011 08:21 PM

Define Crazy: A Nurse's 20 Years on a Locked Psych Ward - Donna Snyder.

The Kid (and The Kid Moves On) - Kevin Lewis.

Revolving Door 14-12-2011 09:58 AM

Just finished Dissolution By C. J. Sansom which was okay, but not great. And am just about finished Confessions of a GP By Benjamin Daniel which is really funny and a nice easy read. Think I will finish it then get on with the tidying.

ThinkingofRecovery 14-12-2011 10:00 AM

The Partner by John Grisham. Can't beat a bit of John Grisham
