Triggering *sexual abuse & murder*
 
lovely bones by Alice Sebold
Triggering *sexual abuse & murder*

It is the story of a teenage girl who, after being brutally raped and murdered, watches from heaven as her family and friends go on with their lives, while she herself comes to terms with her own death.

it should be sad but it is beautiful her discription of heaven reallly captured my heart and it is a tear jerker as you see how her family deal with it in their seperate ways!

im only on chapter 4 and i cant put it down

I'm currently reading Torey Hayden's 'Silent Boy' which was previously called 'Muphys Boy' I'm really liking this book.

Next I'll be reading 'Red tears'

I'd like it if this thread keeps going and when it gets too long gets reborn. It's good!!!

I'm reading Marked by PC Cast.

Its trilogy of Vampire books but so far, I'm really enjoying it.
Its written so differently than I'm used to, with alot of text in brackets
for the thoughts of the main character, Zoe but its really good.

Finally finished the state of africa by Martin Meredith!! It was really really intresting but pretty heavy going, definitly worth the effort though if you are intested in African history and why Africa is in the situation it is in today!

I just read Rescuing Sprite. It's about a family who get a dog from a rescue home and how the dog changes their lives. It's lovely :)

Useless Information 101 21-07-2008 08:23 PM

I have a couple chapters to go on the Watchmen, and now Ive started The Ridiculous Race.

Its hilarious, its a true account of two friends who bet each other that they could race around the world the fastest without using airplanes. It bounces back and forth between the two narrators and its all about their little anecdotes in these places. Its great so far.
