I'm reading forever by Maggie stiefvater

The War Doctor 22-08-2011 05:46 PM

Finished Silver Wedding by Maeve Binchy. Utter trash, with an abrupt, unsatisfying ending to boot. How she earned a reputation as one of Ireland's top writers is beyond me, seeing as talented writers has been one of our chief exports for a long time...

Next I'll either read a book of Philip K. Dick short stories, or Hamlet. I haven't decided.

just started Valis by Philip K Dick

Philip K Dick! My new-found love.

I'm currently re-reading Birdsong as it's been a good eight years or so since I last read it, and I feel I missed a lot of the amazingness of it.

Also half-reading Stephen Fry's autobiography, which I'm loving to pieces (and I'm totally not normally an autobiography person).

I've finally gotten around to starting Hamlet by... hell, you know who wrote it. I'm not very far in, but I'm loving that familiar Shakespeary feel.

I've read Girl Parts, Vampire Beach, The Avenger and am now on Shadows on the Moon. (the main girl cuts herself, I didnt know that)

Hey =) I'm currently reading memoirs of a geisha... good book :) quite inspiring as well as it allows you to believe the quote "never give up"

Just finished Alice in Wonderland for the 2nd time. Kids book my butt. Going to start reading the Scarlet Letter.

Recently finished reading Money by Martin Amis. It was alright, a bit typical of that kind of book (hedonistic and easily dislikable protagonist who fritters away money on booze and women) and not particularly exciting until the ending which was quite a twist.
Now reading Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams. I've never read anything of his before but I'm really loving his style so far :)

I have just ordered a midwives confession, Gonna start reading Saving Amy tonight

xxhappydaysxx 28-08-2011 10:25 PM

I just started The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan. The first one was good.

Antebellum 31-08-2011 03:13 AM

I have just (this second actually!) finished reading 'Tipping The Velvet by Sarah Waters'

I actually feel a little depressed over having finished it!!!! I have read it in a few days and found it quite enchanting lol

I have to say that every lesbian out there should read it! If I wasn't sure I was gay before reading it I am now! I think i've fallen in love with half the characters :wow:

The book is well written and keeps hold of your attention and imagination! Definitely worth a read.

Now I have the issue of choosing which book to read next...

A. Ink Heart (and the following books) by Cornelia Funke
B. Re-read the Twilight series and dull my brain with vampires for a few weeks!

C. Re-read all the Harry Potters... although I should really say re re re re re-read them lol (I've read them so many times I think I know them off by heart)


D. The colour Purple by Alice walker OR Re-read Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs.

Too many choices....

I now realise I have rambled myself to death.

I love Tipping the Velvet! It's really sad in parts but describes being depressed and heart broken really well. Now you need to go buy the film, well it's not an actual film, it was a two part tv show. I have one of her (Sarah Waters) other books but haven;t read it yet,

Pink Lemonade Fairy 31-08-2011 02:36 PM

'The Room', it started off slow but now I see why because I feel so attached to the characters, it's good

The One Who 31-08-2011 03:04 PM

Vellum by Hal Duncan. It was very odd, jumps about all over the place, but if you can get over that then it was quite enjoyable as a fantasy novel.

Carousel 31-08-2011 05:28 PM

Just finished reading 'Redeeming Love' by Francine Rivers. It was amazing, I'd recommend it to anyone :)

beautifulbutterflies 31-08-2011 05:40 PM
