'The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year' - Sue Townsend. It's kind of ridiculous, not exactly a great book, but it has made me laugh (I think my housemates now think I'm crazy!)

nowhereman 07-03-2013 12:45 PM

MrsNutkin 18-03-2013 03:09 PM

Families and how to survive them. Not because I think I can't stand my family but it's more uni related. That said, it's well written and an easy Read. By John Cleese and Robin Skynner

I read that years ago and loved it! I went on an apocalypse reading binge after it, including The Stand which is also fab. Thanks for reminding me about it!

Currently reading Chekhov's Short Stories after finishing Behind The Beautiful Forevers.

Serendipity. 13-04-2013 02:53 AM

I'm reading 'Life Without Limits' - Chrissie Wellington. It's rather inspirational even if the writing style leaves something to be desired!

The Outcast - Sadie Jones. My friend and Mum have both told me its an amazing book and finally gotten around to reading it! Not too far through it atm, but its good so far!

LotusandDice 19-04-2013 01:13 AM

Metro 2033, I'm about in the middle of the book. I highly recommend it, either if you are interested in post-apoc literature or the psychological "observation" of people finding themselves in difficult and unusual circumstances.

nowhereman 19-04-2013 02:30 AM

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult.

I'm reading Prozac Nation: Young & Depressed in America by Elizabeth Wurtzel.

I've put off reading it for years but surprisingly I'm actually liking it and it's really well written and easy to read.

Petrichor 27-04-2013 04:42 PM

The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey
It's really good, and is in short chapter, which i enjoy. I prefer short chapters or sections to longbecause it means I can read in the short sections of time i get while the dinner is cooking, while I'm waiting for class to start and so on :B

nowhereman 27-04-2013 09:15 PM

^^elphaba <3

I reading Find You in the Dark by A. Meredith Walters (mentions self harm)

Petrichor 27-04-2013 11:16 PM

hehe yesh, Elphaba is kind of my fictional idol. :B

My flatmate also brought home a collection of eroticised fairy tales. I am going to have to make it my duty to read them all, even if it is to see how bad they are.

About to start a book by Stephen King, I have 20 left to pick from (making my way through everything he has ever written, read a good chunk of it)... Including...

Carrie, Christine, Cujo, Full dark no stars, fire starter & misery. Don't know what to pick :P

The War Doctor 09-05-2013 11:43 AM

I spent some time this morning reading a couple of randomly-chosen chapters of Theology: The Basics by Alister E. McGrath. I'm an atheist but I found it very interesting on an academic level. I was reading it for revision but it was a surprisingly good, accessible, understandable read.

Petrichor 09-05-2013 04:27 PM

At some point very soon I am going to have to finally get round to reading one of the Sherlock Holmes stories for the crime section of my genre class. It's something I've been meaning to do for a while actually so #I am kind of looking forward to it.
