My friend has been going on for ages about it so I thought I'd give it a go, not bad so far...

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld,

The War Doctor 11-10-2012 11:11 PM

I've had ALL the time to read lately because of some long train journeys, so I recently finished Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and am now flying through Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Both books have been on my personal reading list for years, and now college has finally given me a reason to read them.

To be honest, I didn't really enjoy Pride and Prejudice as much as I thought I would. Having discussed it in class and learned a lot about it, I suppose it's a pretty good book, and it had some great moments, but on the whole I just struggled to get into it. I found it really hard to stay interested in the story and most of the characters.

On the other hand, Wuthering Heights is damn good so far, and I'm enjoying it a lot.

i cant spell it so i took a picture

:D x

makedamnsure 12-10-2012 10:32 AM

Conor absolutely agree. Jane Austen i find incredibly boring (pride and prejudice, Emma etc) but love love love the bronte sisters. Wuthering heights is great but if you haven't read Jane eyre yet read that too. One of my favourite books.

Just started rereading my favorite novel at the moment, Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon. Absolutely beautiful piece of work, and a great commentary on the inner workings of the depressed writers' mind.

nowhereman 14-10-2012 12:17 AM

Just finished winter girls by Laurier halse Anderson now reading the best little girl in the world again by Steven Levronkon.

Not necessarily a book for children :P. One of my absolute favorites though. You should try 'One pill makes you smaller'. It's a good updated twist.

I just finished Best friends forever by Jennifer Weiner. I love her as an author. Torn on what to read next . . . there's too much on my bookwall to choose from.

Stellata 15-10-2012 09:15 PM

Have just started The Northern Clemency, by Philip Hensher. Well, I'm nearly up to page 100.
It attracted me partly because it's set in the '70s, which is when I grew up..
It's a mighty big book though - which is how I like them!

nowhereman 16-10-2012 01:00 AM

Scars by Cheryl Rainfield.

GraveSong 16-10-2012 02:13 PM

I love pony stories. I found some a while back at a jumble sale for 20p each and bought them. I've only just started reading them now, coz I collect books and have quite a few. So, now, I'm reading Ponies in Peril, and have almost finished it. The next one in the pile is called Save The Ponies.

nowhereman 17-10-2012 12:14 AM

Aww I grew up reading any and every pony story I could get. My favourite were the Jinny series by Patricia Leitch. I need to get my hands on those again, I kept them until recently I gave them on loan tout never got them back :(

Anyway, right now I am reading Unloveable by Choice Jane Doe.

Leo Pard 17-10-2012 12:49 AM

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

GraveSong 17-10-2012 01:58 PM

I used to have a small collection of the Jinny books, but they weren't the best pony books for me. I also have a book called the black stallion revolts.

Leni 17-10-2012 03:07 PM

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared - I loved the title and premise of this, it's a really amusing and quirky read.

nowhereman 17-10-2012 10:11 PM

I'm reading Devil's Bargain by Rachel Caine.

Dreaming. 17-10-2012 11:23 PM

Finished Dune, recently read Fight Club by Chuck Palanuik (amazing!) - now reading Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions

GraveSong 18-10-2012 04:02 PM

I'm now reading another of the horse books called Phantom Horse.

Rumors by Anna Godbersen.

Rafiki 19-10-2012 02:15 PM

Fear by Michael Grant, book 5 of his series about a town called Perdido Beach, California, where everyone over the age of 15 disappears one day... I'm addicted to this series, he's a really good writer!

Revolving Door 19-10-2012 03:06 PM

Rape Girl By Alina Klein

nowhereman 19-10-2012 10:06 PM

About to start Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter.

The War Doctor 22-10-2012 05:36 PM

I just finished Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I absolutely loved it. My one complaint is that there were no really likeable characters, so it was hard to become emotionally invested and hope for anyone to succeed. All I could do was watch with horror and amazement as these crazy bastards tear themselves and each other to pieces. Oh wait, I have one other complaint, but this is directed at (some) fans of the book: do you really and truly think this is a beautiful, romantic love story? If so, you have serious issues. Your idea of love is more twisted and unhealthy than people who think Edward Cullen is the perfect boyfriend, if your swooning over the Catherine/Heathcliff fiasco is any indication. :P

I've started reading Hard Times by Charles Dickens. I'm only a few pages in, but I'm enjoying it so far. The writing style alone is pretty entertaining.

Serendipity. 22-10-2012 07:08 PM

Just read 'The Happiness Project' by Gretchen Rubin which I quite enjoyed.

Now reading 'Far From the Madding Crowd' but it's taking a while!

nowhereman 25-10-2012 12:06 AM

Dancing Daze (Ask Amy Green) by Sarah Webb. Yes it's a kids book but I love anything to do with ballet, plus I do enjoy children's books.

nowhereman 25-10-2012 01:58 PM

About to start Checkout Girl by Denise Deegan. It is FREE on kindle today at http://www.amazon.com/Checkout-Girl-...=denise+deegan her Butterfly Novels are fab. (hope it's ok to post the link)

nowhereman 26-10-2012 09:49 PM

Now I'm reading For Charlie by Denise Deegan.

Dreaming. 27-10-2012 07:29 AM

Cross between Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie (as I decided I should read some Rushdie at some point) and The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes.

Really rnjoyinh both; you understand why they have such acclaim when you read then, but in very different ways.

Petrichor 27-10-2012 04:19 PM

Goddess of Spring by P.C. Cast. A retelling of the Persephone myth, which is just about my favourite myth ever.

Also re-reading Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix for the hundred-and-somethingth time.

I've always been too scared to read it, let me know how you find it :)

Alex, the Life of a Child.

melissafaith 30-10-2012 02:36 AM

The Fifty Year Sword by Mark Z Daneielewski - Just started it, but I'm really enjoying it. I love House of Leaves, so I'm fairly confident that I will love this one as well.

Buttons. 30-10-2012 05:48 PM

Just read 100 names by Cecilia Ahern, was really good, funny and heart warming although a little predictable.
