About to start Beautiful Redemption the 4th and final book from the Beautiful Creatures series.

Just started with Stephen King's The girl who loved Tom Gordon.

So far so good. Never read anything his before. :-)

Flourishing by Maureen Gaffney - it's non fiction

Rafiki 01-11-2012 09:30 PM

I'm re-reading A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket).

rubik's cube 01-11-2012 09:32 PM

just finished reading january first.

now. i don't understand why, but if it wasn't for sleep, i'd have probably finished this in one session. this may not seem major, but i can't remember the last time i finished (or even almost finished) a book in one session.

it's not that i particularly enjoyed it. or maybe it's just been so long since i actually enjoyed a book i don't recognize it. it didn't put a smile on my face, anyway, but i don't think it's the type of book you should be smiling about.

one thing that bugged me was the fact the author's son could someday read this, and the author makes it pretty clear, imo, that he favors his daughter over his son. he basically says that because he can't find someone on his daughter's level, he'd create someone on her level - and there you have the reason behind the son. and it just disturbed me.

don't get me wrong. i have so much respect for this family, in the same way i have a stubborn sort of respect for my family for dealing with me. and i understood he loved his daughter, but his son's life was at risk. i think that's the time you need to sit back and think, "right. something needs to be done."

idk. it's not my position to judge.

but i would really like to read another book like it, if anyone has any suggestions. it was really interesting to read from the parent's pov.

and i'm now reading get me out of here. i'm too early on to give an opinion on it, but her husband's a sweetheart. and i get a weird vibe from dr padgett.

okay. i'll finish rambling now. xD

This one is where we first learn about Larry and Francey, and Mina :). This is only the second book of his that I've read (well, I'm reading this one now!), so I'm trying to get his others!

I'm reading 'A Fly On The Ward' by Michael K Chapman which is a pretty funny book and gives me a laugh reminding myself of funny times in hospitals!

I'm also reading my friends book which is available on kindle only called Runaway With Me by Kayleigh Patchett.

On my 'to read' list.

Right now i'm reading Psych ER: Psychiatric Patients Come to the Emergency Room - Rene Muller. Reminds me of my uni days cause it's a bit like a textbook.

The War Doctor 12-11-2012 04:49 PM

This morning I finished Hard Times by Charles Dickens and am now re-reading Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I read it a couple of years ago, just as personal reading, and I liked it a lot. It's much better the second time though.

offlineforever 12-11-2012 04:52 PM

I read Heart of Darkness a couple of years ago for uni and loved it!

The War Doctor 12-11-2012 04:54 PM

I'm reading it for college too, I forgot to mention that. :P We haven't had any lectures on it yet, but I'm looking forward to them, because it's one of my favourite books.

nowhereman 12-11-2012 06:00 PM

Lolita by Vladmir Nabokov.

sophrose89 12-11-2012 11:46 PM

Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker.

It's one of the wierdest books i've read. First i've read of his.

Dreaming. 14-11-2012 09:48 PM

Just finished The Sense of an Ending which was pretty nice. Now reading Bad Science by Ben Goldacre - I recommend everybody read it (particularly those with an interest in science articles in the newspapers etc.) - it's a brilliant book outlining key scientific understanding and the issues with 'pop science'.

one_step_closer 15-11-2012 03:59 PM

A Nurse in Time - Evelyn Prentis.


Hobbes 15-11-2012 06:00 PM

I haven't really got into this yet and not sure I'll be able to finish it. But giving it a go..

nowhereman 15-11-2012 08:59 PM

Hidden (House of Night series) by Pc and Kristin Cast.

one_step_closer 17-11-2012 11:55 AM

Gave up on A Nurse in Time, now reading Little Boy Lost - Shane Dunphy.

sophrose89 17-11-2012 03:26 PM

I just finished Destined to play.

It was pretty much as bad as I thought it would be. I wouldn't recommend unless you actually though 50 shades of gray was good literature.

The War Doctor 18-11-2012 06:55 PM

I just finished Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I wasn't supposed to read that book for another two weeks; I should have been reading A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce instead. Now I have to read at least a good chunk of that by Tuesday morning. :P

Sounds really interesting, googled it but it's too expensive else I would have bought it

Reading In the Psychiatrist's Chair lll by Anthony Clare. Have the first one already, enjoy in both how you can dip in and out & that it doesn't have to be read in order

Dreaming. 18-11-2012 10:36 PM

Just finished Bad Science. I do feel that anybody with an interest in sci or just a general interest in the whole "65% of people do this!" type headlines should read it, it's utterly brilliant.

Also believe that the entirety of Parliament should read it, but that's a whole other matter.

Now reading Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski which is good but very sad already.

nowhereman 19-11-2012 01:30 AM

About to start Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate.

nowhereman 20-11-2012 06:46 PM
