I just finished Poppy Shakespeare (again) which is excellent.
Now I'm reading Neat Vodka, a thriller set in, predictably, Russia. It's going well so far.

I'm reading I am a Cat by Soseki Natsume, which seems to be taking forever because I keep not reading it for days on end.
But it's okay, I'm almost halfway through!
Only 277 pages to go.. _

I just read this amazing book called Addition by Toni Jordan. Just randomly picked it out at the library and it turned out to be an addictive book. It's about OCD. :)

I'm currently reading Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery. It's the second book in a series about an orphan who was adopted into this family.. very good books so far. They were written about a hundred years ago (copyright date for this second book is 1909).

I've just finished reading the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan. Anyone interested in Wicca should definitely read them. They're fun to read as they take you along the adventure of a 17yr old girl who finds out she's a "blood witch". Ms. Tiernan did a great job with them, by mixing so much reality with a bit of fantasy.

Steel Magnolia 13-08-2008 04:41 PM

'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' by Hunter S. Thompson yet again. I love it though!

I used to love those books! I really need to dig them out again!

I've just finished 'Nineteen Minutes' by Jodi Picoult which was surprisingly good, and 'Five for Sorrow, Ten for Joy' by Rumer Godden, which is one of the best books ever. I love her.

I don't know what to read next =[

Addition - Tori Jordan

beautiful&dying 22-08-2008 01:34 PM

The Beast of Jersey, one of my dads old 70s books, about a man who abducted and abused many kids. Not very cheery but it's well written (true story too, the author is his wife!) and I'm actually kind of enjoying it, as much as you can 'enjoy' something like that.

I just read the Alchemist - also by Paulo Coelho!! It was very readable....good but not quite as sensational as i had been led to believe! I want to read veronika decides to die....now!

Before that I read Scar Tissue by Anthony Kedis, I have rather mixed feelings about this book! He was brutally honest and had a lot of intresting things to say, esp, about recovery from drug addiction, however, this also meant that at times he said some incredibly irresponsible things (in a book that is going to be read by people who idolise him and thus what he says)! Worth reading though!!....*climbs off high horse slightly embarrassed*!!

Just finished No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay. Was really good, I could see some of the twists coming but other bits completely took me buy surprise. Page turner for me.

It wasn't as great as it's made out to be, but definitely worth reading.
