^ I read that earlier on this year I think. Was quite good as far as I remember.

Faustus 24-04-2012 08:37 PM

Finished Weekend at Bellevue, it was nice to read that as a psychiatrist she also had a psychiatrist. Not sure what to read next :cool:

I was at a comic con last weekend and over heard some people talking about "emotobooks" I asked what that was all about and they said it's some sort of new medium of fiction for this era. This peeked my interest and I did some research. Found their website on Google. Noticed they had a Sci-Fi title called "Swing Zone" so I snagged it. Looks very interesting. Can't wait to get into it.

Recently finished reading the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins (for the 6th time) I love that series, her style of writing just pulls you in, I would recommend it to everyone. I have as of yet to find a person who doesn't like it. I'm also re-reading Wuthering Heights, as its such a beautiful read.

I found that quite slow through most of the book and then fast at the end. It wasn't as good as I expected it to be but worth reading.

Leo Pard 28-04-2012 04:29 PM

'Sing You Home' by Jodie Picoult. It's awesome so far.

I'm in the middle of Made in The U.S.A. by billie Letts. Its a really good book, a lot of people can relate to, despite the fact that they are homeless, but it really will speak to a lot of people!!

Just started on Cybill Disobedience by Cybill Shepherd. I picked this up after Karen Slaughter's Martin Misunderstood and failing to read Is it Just Me? by Whoopi Goldberg and although its written with her humor I just could not get into it so I will have to try it again another time.

I love that book!

I just finished the death trilogy by Terry Prachett.

The War Doctor 08-05-2012 01:06 PM

I've been reading so slowly lately that I forgot all about this thread. Anyway, I finished The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (just the first book, not the trilogy) the other day. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it either. I probably won't read it again, but it was worth reading once and I'll get around to the other two books at some point.

Currently reading A Game Of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I've been dying to read it since the Game Of Thrones TV series started, and I'm loving it so far.

I just finished Dance with Dragons (Book 5 of A Song of Ice and Fire) - George R. R Martin. Epiiiiiiic.

I think I'm reading a Jodi Picoult book next..either Lone Wolf or Sing Me Home.

Or Delirium..I have no idea who wrote that though..

Leo Pard 17-05-2012 09:41 PM

Read Sing Me Home. Have just finished it and it is awesome. So thought provoking and stuff. It also actually made me really angry at points and really happy at points and stuff, I guess you can really identify with the characters emotions and stuff which is good.

one_step_closer 17-05-2012 09:49 PM

I agree, Sing Me Home is a great book.
