I thought it was ok, very honest. But there was something that did bother me but I won't say as you're only halfway through.

I admire her though for being able to make what she went through so public

I need to decide what to read next, I hate not having a book.

GlitterGirl 12-05-2010 07:32 PM

Currently reading Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult.

I got it ages ago and started it but didn't get very far and I've just recently picked it up again and I'm really getting into it this time :)

Otter 12-05-2010 07:44 PM

I am reading Maos Last Dancer which is about a litle boy who grew up in China during the cultural revolution, and was taken from his family to become a ballet dancer.
It's fascinating and very well written (and a true story)

Snowdrop 14-05-2010 12:09 AM

Just finished Girl, Interrupted. I was disappointed by it

[Desolation.] 14-05-2010 03:12 PM

red tears by Joanna Kenrick. Epically good book. fictional story about sh, not too good if your triggered easily but i read it all in one night.

just started Fallen by Lauren Kate. good so far. i would reccomend it but it is quite long, so you have to have some stamina to read it

Serenade 14-05-2010 04:06 PM

Reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen and also re-reading Misery by Stephen King.

silverfaerychild 14-05-2010 08:28 PM

Fry 15-05-2010 12:28 AM

I've just started reading George Orwell's 1984

x-dying-inside-x 15-05-2010 04:23 PM

i'be just started twilight because everyone in my english class said its good.

The War Doctor 16-05-2010 09:49 PM

Everyone in your English class lied through their teeth. Twilight is the worst book I've ever read. Even worse than The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons.

I just finished reading Ulysses by James Joyce. It was, bar none, the greatest book I have ever read.

Next I'll be reading Going Postal by Terry Pratchett.

samfishers 17-05-2010 02:44 PM

Where i live english litterature is not so popular.
but this month I have read :
Dorian gray's portrait - Oscar wilde
Les fleurs du mal (poem book) - C. Baudelaire

And I am reading:
BRave new world - Aldous huxley

lolalola519 18-05-2010 02:18 AM

I just finished Luna by Julie Ann Peters and love it, very thought provoking.

And I just started City of Bones by Cassandra Claire.

clear_skies 18-05-2010 02:28 AM

This thread makes me really miss reading for fun. Too many textbooks to read for me at the moment :s

crazykat 19-05-2010 02:59 PM

I'm reading 'Monkey Taming' by Judith Fathallah

Devil Girl 19-05-2010 03:55 PM

I have just finished Voluntary Madness By Norah Vincent and quite enjoyed itespecially as a psychology student and as someone who has experianced psychiatric wards personally.

Now about to start reading Juliet, Naked By Nick Hornby

The War Doctor 19-05-2010 08:49 PM

I finished reading Going Postal by Terry Pratchett today, and I loved it. Not the best Discworld book, or the funniest, but that's like saying €990 isn't as good as €1,000 - technically true, but totally inconsequential. It was good to see Vetinari getting a bigger role, he's my favourite character in the series.

Now I'm reading Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, it's the first time I've read any of his work. It is FANTASTIC.He actually has a fairly similar sense of humour to Terry Pratchett, surprisingly enough.

one_step_closer 21-05-2010 01:37 PM
