I finished Skin Game and have just started Sickened By Julie Gregory

I didn't really enjoy Skin Game but it got better in the second part.

Weight- Jeanette Winterson

Lord Of The Flies by William Golding, then going to read Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stephenson. I should be able to read them both in a couple of days even though I'm quite busy, I'm very fast (HP & The Order Of The Phoenix took me all of 8 hours).

Haunted - James Herbert.

Just read- Cut by Patrica McCormick, I liked it, was a bit "fake" though in my opinion.

Reading The More You Ignore Me- Jo Brand, it's really good so far. =]

I agree, Devil Girl, The Secret Scripture was really good!

Yesterday I started reading The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo and I am already sucked in. I don't know what exactly has done that but I am looking forward to picking it up later and reading some more.

I just finished reading 'Voluntary Madness by Norah Vincent'. I quite liked it.

Will start reading 'The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger'

Just finished Impulse by Ellen Hopkins. I couldn't put it down, it is really sad though. =[

Now I'm reading Girl, Interruped by Susanna Kaysen, and hoping it's better than the movie. =]

I too hope it is better than the movie - I was sorely disappointed by it.

I read Ordinary People by Judith Guest, it's a great book...I totally recommend
I watched the film last month (which I also recommend; great cast, great performances, very touching) and when I was in the library, what a coincidence, I saw the book...I liked so much that bought it...but it didn't come yet because the mailman (what a silly man) stays in the gate quiet as mouse, waiting someone to notice he is there instead of shouting, hehehe

Glad you enjoyed it too!

Oh I have been wanting to read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo let me know how it is?

It's really good so far. Such a shame that the writer died, a waste of talent.

Sparky! 18-02-2010 11:38 PM

'Lullabies for Little Criminals' was quite good.

Thenr ead 'Bedside Stories' by Michael Foxton which I liked. Now reading 'Skin game' by Caroline Kettlewell in my room and 'How the Light gets in' by MJ Hyland in front of my parents. 'How the Light Gets In' is good so far, 'Skin Games' is a bit annoying.

My soul to take by Rachel Vincent

Sparky! 20-02-2010 03:27 AM

'Skin Game' was okay, it was kind of boring. I liked the end.

Now just reading 'How the Light Gets In' which is seriously amazing. Love her books.
