Left Neglected - Lisa Genova.

Just finished Cut by Cathy Glass and moved onto Shadows on the moon

Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins.

Might move onto Mockingjay (Suzanne Collins) after that or read the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness.

The War Doctor 15-12-2011 02:13 PM

Finished The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King this morning. Although my complaints about it still stand, I liked it. Even though the protagonist was far too mature, intelligent and level-headed for someone of her age and in her situation, King still did a good job of making her believable, just enough so you empathise with her and want her to be rescued. The ending was pretty sweet too.

I haven't decided what I'm going to read next... maybe Devils by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Chicken Soup for the Soul.

The War Doctor 17-12-2011 03:17 AM

Just started Devils by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I haven't finished the introduction yet but so far I'm enjoying it. This book actually seems to have a sense of humour (albeit a very dark one), something that I've never noticed in any other Dostoevsky book I've read so far.

Just finished Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (the first one) and now reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson and Kafka on the Shore by Murakami.

I just read "It's Kind of a Funny Story" by Ned Vezzini. It was excellent. It deals with depression, but with a very uplifting and sometimes funny tone. I could relate to it and I'm sure many here could too. It's a movie now as well and Zach Gilafinakis(sp?)(from the hangover, lol). Definitely one you can't put down. :)

^ I've seen the film which I enjoyed, the book is on my 'to read' list.

Laura2.0 18-12-2011 08:00 PM

^ I read the book, now I want to see the movie.

I'm currently reading 'The legend of Drizzt book 1 - Homeland' by R. A. Salvatore. I'm going to read the second book after this one and then I want to finish my book about BPD.

Fallen by Karin Slaughter.

Revolving Door 19-12-2011 01:26 PM

Currently reading Junk By Melvin Burgess - don't think it's that great to be honest.

one_step_closer 20-12-2011 08:25 PM

Running With Scissors - Augusten Burroughs.
