I loved My Sister's Keeper. I just finished Dirty Liar by Brian James, it is about a high school boy who is dealing with depression after leaving his alcoholic mother's house and his mother's loser boyfriend. He was verbally, emotionally, and physically abused but goes to his dad's house with his estranged dad who doesn't exactly think the most of him.
It's a great book because of all the things he overcomes and especially the descriptive sentences the author puts into it. It made me feel better on my sick day today :)

I'm reading: The Drawing Of The Three by Stephen King. It's the second in the Dark Tower Series. The first book (The Gunslinger) was ridiculously bad, but all my friends who've read the series say you have to trudge through the first two books and things start to get interesting in the third. Anyone else read them?

I'm also about 50 pages from the end of Lamb by Christopher Moore. I love it. So funny. I picked up another one of his books already, can't wait to read more of them!

That's a good book.

House Rules - Jodi Picoult

And ofcourse Harry Potter. Again.

The War Doctor 06-02-2012 12:41 AM

I finished HITMAN by Bret Hart last night. Very good book, and very well written. Bret Hart had one hell of an amazing life and it's nice to read about it from his perspective, especially the stuff that hasn't really been covered in detail elsewhere (like his stroke). My one complaint is that every time something bad was about to happen to him, he could "feel" it coming. Maybe it's just because it all seems more obvious in hindsight, but if his book is to be believed, he predicted: the infamous Montreal Screwjob, the Dynamite Kid burning out, Owen Hart's death (which NOBODY could have predicted) and his mother's death. At least he was honest enough to admit that his stroke caught him completely by surprise. All in all though, it was a great read. I'd recommend it to any wrestling fan, especially Bret Hart fans.

Today I started Papillon by Henri Charriére. Very good so far.

You must be the quickest reader in the world ever! You seem to get through a book a week! Jealous!


I apologise for the excessive use of exclamation marks...

one_step_closer 12-02-2012 12:53 PM

^ Exclamations marks are good! I read up to three books a week depending on what I have to do. Sometimes I have so much time that there isn't much else to do.
