JUst finished Blue by Sue Mayfield, amazing, everyone should read it, and Skin by whoever it's by. Now I'm reading Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth, it's very good, about the president's vampire.

Just finished A Week in December, which I didn't really enjoy thaaat much. It was good, but it wasn't amazing.

Now reading Beauty and The Beast, I can't remember who it's by, and The Angels Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I loved The Shadow of the Wind, so I'm really looking forward to reading this.

^^For people that love books and liked Shadow of the Wind.
I recommend "if on a winters night a traveller" by Italo Calvino

I've just started it on brothers recommendation and I love it so far. It really draws you in and then leaves you hanging! Frustrating but thats the point! Its about the power of novels and things. Amazing book.

I felt exactly the same about this book. Expected a lot more and it was abit disappointing in the end.

Anyway, Ive just finished You Dont Know Me by David Klass and im about to re-read To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

Im now reading "one morning one moment" which is good and easy to read so far, im not far into it, but ive heard its really good anyways.

I just started reading Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris. It's the newest Sookie Stackhouse novel.

Belladonna 17-05-2011 09:35 PM

Just finished the perks of being a wallflower by stephen chbosky, which I would recommend to anyone. I'm currently working my way through the manga Loveless too.

I am reading The Godfather

I have so so many books i want to read at the moment - and shelves full of unread books that my flatmates mum has given me!

But currently reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest byt Stieg Larsson (third book in his millennium series)

Excellent books, but unfortunately the third one is taking me a while to read because my concentration has disappeared, and they aren't the easiest of books to follow...

Jsut re-reading Paper Towns by John Green which I think is one of the best thought out, beautiful books written in the last 10 years.
It does hurt that it's funny too ^-^

makedamnsure 23-05-2011 10:02 AM

another great book

Oh oh oh I've heard that's good. You're enjoying it then?

I'm currently reading Les Miserables, which is pretty heavy-going (I have a Kindle, so thankfully not literally!), but I'm really enjoying it.
