Oooh, that's in my book cupboard waiting to be read. Do you recommend it?

Just finished Good Girls Do Swallow - was a quirky eating disorder book, different to the others I have read!

Yes i would, it reads a little like marble, which doesn't make sense, but it's very smooth and pretty. It has a lot of heart in it and I really like it so far, just past the half way point :)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Keyboard Warrior 16-04-2010 09:24 PM

Just read "Baby X" by Harry Keeble. Awesome, though obviously saddening, book. Must read for anyone wanting to go into social work/policing/child protection.

Dracula.

Required reading for school.

Ugh.

Serenade 17-04-2010 02:44 AM

I love Dracula. There are parts that drag, Mina doesn't half go on about crap, but the first part of the story is brilliant and pretty eerie. And when Renfield comes into it things get a little more interesting and weird.

I haven't got up to that point yet. I'm not minding the book, actually; it's more the fact I'm being made to read it that I object to. :-p

Yeah it is never fun being forced to read something but sometimes you start to appreciate the reason you are told to work with that writer and it surprises you how well you connect with the material or how it draws you in. T'is a good read for the most part :-D I love the setting of Whitby for some reason.
