Reading Middlemarch by George Eliot. Its a bit slow and hard to get into but im trying.

Also finished the Georgia Nicholson series, reread Twilight for the milionth time, finished Blood ties by Sophie Mackenzie i think, read Oath Breaker by Michell paver and A Certain Slant of Light by someone (i'm not sure if that's the right title but its late so never mind =) )...

I'm another who can't wait to read 'The time travellers wife' by Audrey Neffeneger (SP) it's an old classic from what I can gather. Can't wait to see the movie either.

Current read: A million pieces by James Frey, only just started it today.

Currently reading Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli. It's fascinating.

Finally just finished this afternoon Pride and Prejudice and Zombies which was a bit of a let down. I thought it would be amusing but felt far too contrived and I much prefer the original.

Now? Started on Thucydides, The Archaeology Coursebook and just looking round to see what novel to read alongside them.

The Language of Others - Clare Morrall.

I've given up on that already. Now reading Cry Silent Tears - Joe Peters.

I've read that, it was quite good and helped me quite a bit.

I'm currently re-reading all of Darren Shan's 'The Demonata' books... halfway through the fourth one, Bec, at the moment.

Handle With Care - Jodi Picoult. I'm loving it!

I am reading Rugrats: The Movie and have been since i was 8... Still haven't finished it. I guess that shows how little i read haha.

I'm reading "What Really Matters" (it's not on me at the moment, so don't know the author)

one_step_closer 07-07-2009 10:04 AM

Songs of the Humpback Whale - Jodi Picoult.

ThinkingofRecovery 07-07-2009 10:12 AM

Anyway, I need ideas re a novel to read alongside the other stuff. Any ideas?

I'm currently reading 'The Shining' by Stephen King as it's one of my favourites and also reading 'Moby Dick' by Herman Melville

Spoons 07-07-2009 08:00 PM

the shining is amazing, the book is far superior to the film , but both are amazing

one_step_closer 07-07-2009 08:11 PM

The Shining is on my 'to read' list :-)

Faustus 07-07-2009 08:27 PM

I agree! I mean, i love Kubrick's take on the story but it certainly doesn't come close to the novel. There's so much going on in the book and it's one of my favourites that i could re-read over and over :-D
