Beyond the Shining Water by Audrey Howard. It's not my usual type of read but I'm finding it great so far, just very different to what I'd usually pick up so I'm still getting to grips with it. It's a lovely story and she has taught me a lot about ships and Liverpool being a dockland, so it's all good!

I have at last finished The California Club by Belinda Jones. I'm a slow reader :) Read it. I'm now reading Going Home by Harriet Evans.

I'm reading Lolita. I can't spell the writers name for the life of me though. It's very...interesting.

Kame 11-12-2008 07:55 PM

Desperation by Stephen King, it's strange to say the least.

TrixieFirecracker 11-12-2008 09:10 PM

Lisey's Story - Stephen King

Wonderful. 12-12-2008 06:49 PM

Jordan, A Whole New World- Katie Price.
I was curious... It is actually a really good book. =]

Dreaming. 13-12-2008 02:01 PM

I'm reading 'Under a Blood Red Sky'. It's boring, and not particularly well-written, but I've nothing else to read as yet.

Oh, and 'Globalisation' by Anthony Giddens :P
But that's for uni.

One of my housemates did a big book buy a few days ago, and bought Power by Bertrand Russell, that I really want to read.

Eir 13-12-2008 11:10 PM

Just finished Awakening by Lara Morgan and now reading Scar Night by Alan Campbell. I'm a fantasy buff. Awakening has dragons!!! good book, by an aussie author

Stirred 14-12-2008 12:01 AM

I'm reading The Otherside of the Story by Marian Keyes. She's a fantastic author I love her Irish wit and the way her books are funny but they always have a serious topic in there. Her books always make me both laugh and cry.

anna christine 14-12-2008 12:35 AM

i'm reading haunted by chuck palahniuk.
i love it, it's weird and amazing (:

TrixieFirecracker 16-12-2008 10:14 PM

Poppy Shakespeare by Clare Allen

Piper 16-12-2008 11:04 PM

I just finished 'Before I Die' by someone who's name I have forgotten! the cover said 'will make you happy to be alive' .... it didn't!
not saying it wasn't good, I loved it, especially the way the ending chapters were written/set out but it kinda made me feel guilty!

crazykat 16-12-2008 11:10 PM

^Was it by Jenny Downham, as thats the same title of a book I am reading at the moment

The War Doctor 16-12-2008 11:19 PM

Last read: "Notes From Underground" by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Currently reading: "It" by Stephen King
Next on the list: "Torture Garden" by Octave Mirbeau

one_step_closer 17-12-2008 02:16 PM

^^ How are you finding "it"? I didn't manage to read it all because I felt like it was going on pointlessly for so long.

Piper 18-12-2008 04:54 PM

YES it was Jenny Downham, what do you think so far?

Stellata 18-12-2008 05:07 PM

Mummy's Little Girl by Jane Elliott

Is fiction, but reads like a survivor biography. Excellent book.

Alithia Storm 19-12-2008 07:05 PM

I've just finished 'Interview with the Vampire' by Anne Rice. I have to read it for Gothic class, and I was looking forward to reading it all year (shush, I'm a dork). I finished it last night, literally could not put it down, and I definatley reccomend it!
Next up is 'Alice Through the Looking Glass', yet another book I have to read for class but again, one I'm quite looking forward to.
Class reading aside, my boyfriend just bought me 'The Boy with the Striped Pajamas' and 'Northern Lights' by Phillip Pullman. Has anyone read these, and if so, what did you think?

I absolutely love Stephen King, but in my opinion, 'It' isn't one of his best. It's genius, or at least I think it is, but it doesn't half go on. :tongue2:

I have now finished it, I found it alright but not fantastic.

Target Dawn 20-12-2008 12:52 PM

"Steel Ghosts" by Michael Paine.

I'm only quater way through it but so far it's really good.
Basically it's about a man who lived in a town as a child where many people died. He came back there as an adult for business only to find it was practically deserted. However, not all is as it seems as the town is haunted only he doesn't know it, or doesn't want to admit it. No one will give him a straight answer about why this town is so strange...

Anyway, I'll stop giving it all away!

HopeRises 20-12-2008 01:15 PM

I'm reading 'Nation' by Terry Prachett.
Next on my list is 'The grapes of wrath' by John Steinbeck.

I loved Northern Lights. That entire series was excellent, definitely one of my favorites. I was actually thinking of reading it again haha.

I am currently in the middle of the Dead Zone by Stephen King, one of the few books of his I never got around to.
Ive tried reading it so many different times but never finished it. I do like it so far though.

Cage of Stars - Jacquelyn Mitchard

Roses_In_The_Hospital 27-12-2008 04:06 PM

Reading 'American Psycho' by Bret Easton Ellis. Good book, just a bit sick in places! Got loads of books for xmas so just starting to get through them. Reading is probably one of the few things that calms me down at times!

GhostDude306 27-12-2008 04:43 PM

Im just about to start reading Stephen Kings 'Just After Sunset'
