I am a child. :-p


Not necessarily a book for children :P. One of my absolute favorites though. You should try 'One pill makes you smaller'. It's a good updated twist.

I just finished Best friends forever by Jennifer Weiner. I love her as an author. Torn on what to read next . . . there's too much on my bookwall to choose from.

Have just started The Northern Clemency, by Philip Hensher. Well, I'm nearly up to page 100.
It attracted me partly because it's set in the '70s, which is when I grew up..
It's a mighty big book though - which is how I like them!

I love pony stories. I found some a while back at a jumble sale for 20p each and bought them. I've only just started reading them now, coz I collect books and have quite a few. So, now, I'm reading Ponies in Peril, and have almost finished it. The next one in the pile is called Save The Ponies.

Aww I grew up reading any and every pony story I could get. My favourite were the Jinny series by Patricia Leitch. I need to get my hands on those again, I kept them until recently I gave them on loan tout never got them back :(

Anyway, right now I am reading Unloveable by Choice Jane Doe.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

I used to have a small collection of the Jinny books, but they weren't the best pony books for me. I also have a book called the black stallion revolts.

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared - I loved the title and premise of this, it's a really amusing and quirky read.

I'm reading Devil's Bargain by Rachel Caine.

Rumors by Anna Godbersen.

Fear by Michael Grant, book 5 of his series about a town called Perdido Beach, California, where everyone over the age of 15 disappears one day... I'm addicted to this series, he's a really good writer!

About to start Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter.

The War Doctor 22-10-2012 05:36 PM

I just finished Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I absolutely loved it. My one complaint is that there were no really likeable characters, so it was hard to become emotionally invested and hope for anyone to succeed. All I could do was watch with horror and amazement as these crazy bastards tear themselves and each other to pieces. Oh wait, I have one other complaint, but this is directed at (some) fans of the book: do you really and truly think this is a beautiful, romantic love story? If so, you have serious issues. Your idea of love is more twisted and unhealthy than people who think Edward Cullen is the perfect boyfriend, if your swooning over the Catherine/Heathcliff fiasco is any indication. :P

I've started reading Hard Times by Charles Dickens. I'm only a few pages in, but I'm enjoying it so far. The writing style alone is pretty entertaining.

Serendipity. 22-10-2012 07:08 PM

Just read 'The Happiness Project' by Gretchen Rubin which I quite enjoyed.

Now reading 'Far From the Madding Crowd' but it's taking a while!

Dancing Daze (Ask Amy Green) by Sarah Webb. Yes it's a kids book but I love anything to do with ballet, plus I do enjoy children's books.

nowhereman 25-10-2012 01:58 PM
