A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire.

I'm now reading Down and Out in Paris and London, also by George Orwell (I'm on a bit of an Orwell-fest at the moment!)

I loved 1984 aswell. I can't believe I was suckered in by it.

I'm still reading Age of Innocence as haven't sat and read it much. I'm also about to start reading "The Annals of Gullibility" which looks really interesting.

But Inside I'm Screaming, it's very good :)

Just finished reading 'A clockwork orange' by Anthony Burgess, and 'A perfect Life, by Rafaella (sp) Barker. And going to hopefully be reading 1984 by George Orwell soon, as I heard good things about it, and now reading these comments just make me want to read it more.

in five days?! how quickly do you read? it took me like three months to read 1984, i liked it but it confused me a lot. (i was like 15 though).

The Waitress by Melissa Nathan :)

Just finished reading Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, highly recommend it.

Currently reading The Stand by Stephen King. Tried reading once before but got bored after about 200 pages in. This time I've really got into it though :) Recommend it, if you're into the horror / fantasy sort of thing :)

Rodolphus 12-10-2009 07:56 PM

I just finished reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
It was just as good as it was aged 5 :)

Now I'm going to sit and read The Hobbit :)

Devil Girl 12-10-2009 08:35 PM

^Love The Hobbit - must read it again sometime!

As meat loves salt by Maria Mccain < hope i got her last name right

CaiteeBug 12-10-2009 09:26 PM

I just finished reading A Clockwork Orange. I high reccomend it. It's a bit of a hard read, but once you get past the language, it's easy.

I'm rereading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for my children's literature course in uni.
Then I'll be reading Easter 1916 by Charles Townshend.

Devil Girl 13-10-2009 12:22 PM

^That sounds like a fantastic course!

It's pretty good. I prefer it to the other module in English that I'm taking that's all about Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and translating middle English.
That's another book I have to reread, come to think of it.
