I'm reading, The SERIAL KILLER Files by Harold Schechter

Not one of the easiest reads ever. At times I feel like I want to throw up and forget what I just read. And I don't even know why I continue to read.

I'm reading A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess and Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut.
Not enjoying Clockwork Orange. It seems like a series of shock-events trying to grab the reader's attention. And I get the feeling that the end is just going to give some generic moral lesson. Not cool.
Slaughterhouse 5 is much better. I need to reread parts of it because I put it down for two months (got really busy) but I'm enjoying it. I dig Vonnegut's style.

I had to read the first 180 pages of that in my English class, it's great. Parts of it are dumb, but it's still awesome.

I've just finished "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold for the millionth time. It makes me cry every time.

Amazing book, amazing. I hope the movie doesn't ruin it...

If the film ruins it I will personally track down the makers and KILL them.

Are those books any good? Someone told me that the first one is rubbish but the rest are good.

I just finished reading get me out of here by rachel reiland and I really liked it, but at times it was hard to read and really confronting as it was about BPD.

I am now reading change of heart by jodi picoult:)
