Thirteen Reasons Why-Jay Asher

Thanks Carmen, I'll try the library :) I know waterstones want around £15 for it so I was sceptical at first!!

I've just finished "Confinement" by Katharine McMahon. Excellent book, and gripped me well into 3/4 way through, after which it wasn't so absorbing.
I've just started "Sacred Hearts" by Sarah Dunant, and am really enjoying it so far.

I found a lovely read in Asda the other day. 'Words can describe' by Abi Grant. I've only read a few chapters but it's already proving to be beneficial.

I've never found anyone else who's read those! Did you like them?

I just finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

'Alex Box' by Rankin. I dont know whether it counts as a book though cause its mainly photography.

As regards to actual literaturre Im reading 'deoraíocht' by Pádraig Ó Conaire - yup its in Irish :)

Just finished Before I Die By Jenny Downham - I 'enjoyed' it but it wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but definitly worth the read!

Going to start New Moon By Stephanie Meyer - I didn't readlly like Twilight but thought I would continue reading this series considering I've seen the films so far aswell!

I love this book, i read it in school. I hated it at first but once we started studying it i couldn't put it down. I think it is very relevant to today and where we could easily end up.

I have just finished The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I particularly love the language and innuendo. Some of the ideas of society put forward by this book are very interesting. If you get the penguine classic version you can read some of the things written about the book back in 1890. The things they thought were rude and vulgar are halarious, those ppl would turn in the graves if they could see what is accepted in society these days.

Right now I'm reading:

The Bell Jar- for some reason I'm finding it hard to get in to, I lost interest last time about 100 pages in and put it down.

Native Son by Richard Wright

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb.

My English teacher lent me this a while ago; he'd gotten it as a present from someone and didn't know if he'd like it, so he wanted my opinion (he had a few books to get through so I guess he decided to share the load). I absolutely hated it.

As far as I know he didn't read it.

That is one of my all time fave books. I read it when I was 12ish and it really resonated with me, I still remember parts of it vividly. It is pretty graphic for a 12 year old I know!

I'm reading "Inivisible Monsters" By Chuck Palahniuk right now. He has a very unique and distinguishing style of writing. It's like marmite. :D

Me, Myself and Them.

The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien.

Probably one of the most honest works I have ever read.
