Serendipity. 11-01-2012 09:14 PM

I'm just about finished 'The Doctor Will See You Now' by Max Pemberton - which I have loved. And I'm trying to get into 'Love in The Time of Cholera' by Gabriel Marcia Marquez - unsuccessfully so far, which is a shame because I've heard lots of good things about it.

Revolving Door 11-01-2012 10:38 PM

^I want to read 'The Doctor Will See You Now' - hoping the price on kindle will come down a bit.

I'm reading 'The Suicide Effect' which is gripping

Serendipity. 11-01-2012 10:56 PM

^ It's really good. Personally I liked 'Trust Me I'm a Junior Doctor' best but prefer this one to 'Where Does It Hurt?' :) Hope the price comes down soon - I've been wanting to get it since it came out so finally did with Christmas money!

melissafaith 12-01-2012 08:56 AM

I just finished reading It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini, and now I'm reading Night Circus. So far Night Circus is wonderful. The writing is absolutely beautiful.

The War Doctor 12-01-2012 03:33 PM

I just finished The Hobbit (surely I don't need to tell anyone whether or not it was good), but I'm going to hold off on The Lord of the Rings, because yesterday I got HITMAN: My Real life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling by Bret Hart, and I'm dying to read it. Hart is one of my heroes and I've read some overwhelmingly positive reviews of his book.

From what I remember I enjoyed that book. Are you liking it?

Dreaming. 13-01-2012 07:14 AM

Currently reading Empire of the Sun by J. G. Ballard. Understandably a classic, it's really very well written. Reading it alongside 1Q84 and Kafka on the Shore, both by Murakami.

(I have a tube book - EotS - and a sitting-at-home-with-a-glass-of-wine book - Murakami)

skelly jelly 13-01-2012 11:57 AM

Palladion 13-01-2012 05:10 PM

I just finished reading The Fault in our Stars by John Green, I thought the reviews may have over hyped it, but I was so wrong. It's quite easily one of the most beautiful books I have ever read, at one point I was simultaneously laughing so hard and crying my eyes
