^ Please let me know your thoughts on it once you've finished. I have the book but haven't got round to reading it yet.

NoAngel 14-12-2011 07:37 PM

finding it a bit hard to get into to be honest, flits alot between real life and fantasy. will let you know when i finish

Left Neglected - Lisa Genova.

MouseChan 14-12-2011 09:30 PM

Just finished Cut by Cathy Glass and moved onto Shadows on the moon

Rafiki 14-12-2011 10:01 PM

Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins.

Might move onto Mockingjay (Suzanne Collins) after that or read the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness.

The War Doctor 15-12-2011 02:13 PM

Finished The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King this morning. Although my complaints about it still stand, I liked it. Even though the protagonist was far too mature, intelligent and level-headed for someone of her age and in her situation, King still did a good job of making her believable, just enough so you empathise with her and want her to be rescued. The ending was pretty sweet too.

I haven't decided what I'm going to read next... maybe Devils by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

one_step_closer 16-12-2011 08:25 PM

Chicken Soup for the Soul.

The War Doctor 17-12-2011 03:17 AM

Just started Devils by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I haven't finished the introduction yet but so far I'm enjoying it. This book actually seems to have a sense of humour (albeit a very dark one), something that I've never noticed in any other Dostoevsky book I've read so far.

Dreaming. 17-12-2011 09:42 AM

Just finished Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (the first one) and now reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson and Kafka on the Shore by Murakami.

Phone at Nine Just to Say You're Alive - Linda Hart.

Arsmart89 17-12-2011 05:27 PM

I just read "It's Kind of a Funny Story" by Ned Vezzini. It was excellent. It deals with depression, but with a very uplifting and sometimes funny tone. I could relate to it and I'm sure many here could too. It's a movie now as well and Zach Gilafinakis(sp?)(from the hangover, lol). Definitely one you can't put down. :)

one_step_closer 17-12-2011 06:06 PM

^ I've seen the film which I enjoyed, the book is on my 'to read' list.

Laura2.0 18-12-2011 08:00 PM

^ I read the book, now I want to see the movie.

I'm currently reading 'The legend of Drizzt book 1 - Homeland' by R. A. Salvatore. I'm going to read the second book after this one and then I want to finish my book about BPD.

MunchBox 18-12-2011 11:05 PM

^ I loved the book and the film.

ThinkingofRecovery 29-12-2011 02:20 PM

I loved the book but didn't get the chance to see the film :(

little_paws 29-12-2011 03:57 PM

Fallout- Ellen Hopkins. The Help was an amazing book, the film was good too but not as good as the book

SirEffinBarsteward 30-12-2011 08:33 PM

Snuff by Terry Pratchett

Stellata 30-12-2011 08:39 PM

Just finished Death Mask by Kathryn Fox. It's about sexual abuse by US footballers, a crime/thriller novel. Excellent. Outside 'my' genre, but none of these loads of detectives and police people, it was more psychological fiction in a way. Which for me = good.

Now on Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving.

one_step_closer 30-12-2011 10:14 PM

Confessions of a Conjuror - Derren Brown.

ferretmonster 31-12-2011 06:49 PM

I just bought a couple new books (because i have to have something to read lying around)

Can't remember what one is but the other is an Anita Blake vampire hunter, unfortunatly at the time in the shop i couldnt work out which one came first so i started part way through the series (as usual for me)

one_step_closer 02-01-2012 10:49 PM

Saving Max - Antoinette van Heugten.

CrazyAboutMonkeys 03-01-2012 06:21 PM

I just finished *Just Breathe by Susan Wiggs* yesterday and it is a really good book to read it! Now, I have no idea what books i likes to read it LOL!

xxhappydaysxx 03-01-2012 06:59 PM

One step closer - you read really fast ! im still plodding my way through midnights children! x

one_step_closer 03-01-2012 09:56 PM

Every time I start a book it's like i'm on a mission to finish it as quickly as possible so I can get on to the next book!

The War Doctor 04-01-2012 02:26 AM

I stopped reading Devils/The Possessed by Fyodor Dostoevsky, it's just too slow-paced and I don't have the patience for it right now. I'll go back to it someday.

In the meantime I'm re-reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, followed by The Lord of the Rings (which is also very slow-paced, I know, but for some reason it doesn't bother me with this particular book).

Hobbes 04-01-2012 12:38 PM

I'm reading Human Traces - Sebastian Faulks. So far I dont think its in the same league as Birdsong but it is interesting. Hard going but it gets better.

one_step_closer 04-01-2012 02:52 PM

I enjoyed Human Traces, have never read Birdsong though.

Field Of Paper Flowers 05-01-2012 12:51 AM

Gok Wan's autobiography Through Thick and Thin. ^_^
