My therapist gave me a loan of Chicken Soup for the Soul so I'm reading that. Didn't think I'd be into it but it's good.

Ooh, I just finished that. I really liked it.

But I also read GLASS by Ellen Hopkins. I love her books, I really liked IMPULSE, too.

Cutting by Steven Levenkron, really nice book on self-mutilation. Only problem I found is that it should be a little updated but other than that it's ace.

Popple 01-01-2008 12:59 PM

hold on- alan gibbons

was really good about bullying and suicide but yeah it was very sad

I read Sharon Osbourne - Survivor, last week, and it was good, she's led an amazing/eventful life.

I can't decide which is better, that book or her first one (Extreme), anyone read them?

beautiful&dying 18-01-2008 12:46 PM

I recently read Dawn Of the Dumb by Charlie Brooker, which is a collection of his articles printed in the Guardian, both about tv and other subjects. It was totally addictive and so funny I almost cried, as well as being excellent for the miserable 'I can't concentrate' moods because all the articles are like, 2 pages and really readable. Love him.

the QI book of general ignorance at the moment... it's not the first time I've read it but I have no memory practically so it feels like it is. plus I'm meant to be educating myself out of being a useless ****er.

Thought I better read Prozac Nation, so far it's really good. I didn't like The Bell Jar.

beautiful&dying 31-01-2008 04:57 PM

I'm reading Odd Girl Out, about female bullying and it's totally blowing my mind. I wish I'd had it as a kid because it explains everything so interestingly.
