Highly recommend 'One Day' by David Nicholls for RomCom fans.
Felt 'Mystery Man' by Bateman was quirky but dragged &
'The White Tiger' by Aravind Adiga ultimately disappoints.

Just finished Stolen by Lucy Christopher and reading Flyaway by her as well, she signed them XD

also half way through Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers

Recently finished 'Fragile Eternity' by Melissa Marr. It was good but Aislinn annoyed me. She misses Seth, so she randomly decides to have sex with Keenan? Am I the only one who doesn't get this? To Keenan's credit, he didn't. He might be sort of obnoxious at times, but he's a lot more...I dunno...trustworthy? Reliable? Whichever, Than the other summer fey.

I'm now reading Melissa's short story, Stopping Time. Gotta love Iri and Niall. Best fictional couple ever? Hell. Yes.

(Also most dysfunctional fictional couple/threesome if we inclide Leslie ever, but that's half the point. Each one of them wants the other two to be happy together, which is kind of weird but mostly sad and a little adorable.)

Just finished reading 'Cut' by Patricia McCormack... extremely captivating, but triggering. I'm about halfway through 'Perfect World' by Brian James right now.

Favorite from a few months ago - 'Impulse' by Ellen Hopkins... triggering, yet so real and so captivating. Really speaks to me.

Reading 'The Lovely Bones' but it is taking me forever to actually finish.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - John Boyne.

Wonderful. 07-04-2010 12:51 PM

I finished reading A Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket a while ago, I did attempt to start the second because I have all the series, and have had them since I was like 12, but I got side-tracked, I reallyyyy wish I hadn't watched the film, I'd enjoy them so much more. I know they are childish, but I love the way they are written.

Also I just finished Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol. I've been wanting to read it for years, again I know it's a kids book, but I think it is quite a complicated book for a child to understand, but I loved it.

Now I'm reading The Girl in the Mirror by Cathy Glass. I love Cathy Glass, and this is her first novel so I thought I'd give it a try, not as good as her others though, I read each of them in a day I loved them so much, but this is okay, it kind of drags on a little bit.

I'm also half way through reading How to be Good by Nick Hornby, but I got side-tracked by Cathy Glass, but that is good so far.
I think I'll finish that next, then read The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen, I know it's a teen book, but I've really enjoyed her books in the past. =]

Currently reading Trust me, I'm a Junior Dr By Max Pemberton

I am enjoying it. It is an easy read and just real (well it is) but yeah, the reality of it makes it funny.

Saving Samantha - Samantha C. Weaver

...so far am really enjoying it

Finished reading A Thousant Spendid Suns by Khalad Hosseini and am now on the second book of His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman

Imperfect.Star 08-04-2010 10:38 AM

Oooh I love A thousand splendid suns!
I'm reading The Host by Stephanie Meyer - it's not like anything I would normally read but I'm actually really enjoying it.

LittleKitten 08-04-2010 11:26 AM

I'm reading Marked by P.C and Kirsten Cast (for about the tenth time) as well as The Wounded Guardian by Duncan Lay

J.Greens 08-04-2010 11:27 AM

Everyone keeps hyping ATSS, but I've got these! to get through before I buy anything new:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Penguin-Mode...0721976&sr=8-1
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Harry-Potter...722076&sr=8-13

The first I bought for I think 7!
The second were all bought separately but never read, haha!
I think that'll get me into August!

Just finished reading Perfume by Partick Suskind and i'd recommend it to anyone and everyone.
Amazingly written and SO hard to put down.

Hey, have you seen the film? If yes how do they compare? I want to read the book but have seen the film...

I read the book Shutter Island before I saw the film. I'd say, for a film, it follows the story pretty closely. You should definitely read the book if you can get your hands on it (it's still really hard to get a copy where I live, it sells out too quickly and the backorder at the library is Ward C insane).

one_step_closer 08-04-2010 06:57 PM

^^ I agree that it's definitely worth a read. I too read it before I saw the film.

I'm now reading Psychopath - Keith Ablow and The Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide - Alex Chapman and Kim Gratz.

Devil Girl 10-04-2010 12:18 PM

Lol, thanks, I will try get a copy of it! I really liked the film, so will add it my list of books to get round to reading! I have more than a years supply of books to get through just now though!

Currently reading Where Does it Hurt? What the Junior Dr Did Next By Max Pemberton

I am really enjoying it. It is writen in a different style to his first but still a very interesting read! Am half way through and will probably have it finished by tonight :)

The War Doctor 11-04-2010 06:25 PM

I finally finished reading Allen Ginsberg: A Biography by Barry Miles. I loved every word of it.

Now I'm reading Ulysses by James Joyce. Loving it so far, in all its modernistic weirdness.
