Attempting Persuation by Jane Austen. I am yet to get to the end of one of her books, but am not doing bad with this one. ^_^

Can anyone recomend me a good modern day thriller, i have read a few stella rimingtons terrorist thrillers which were ok. After something juicy and realistic and believable. Been reading last couple of days which has been enjoyable and distracting = good.

I'm not sure what kind of thriller you are after but I can reccommend a great author whose series of books is all based on serial murders if you like?

Self Power - Spiritual solutions to life's greatest challenges by Deepak Chopra.
About two thirds of the way through. I wish i had read this book five years ago. First time i've read anything where the knowledge i have gained is going to have an impact on my life. I would recommend it to anybody, whether you are in a dark place or not.

I just finished A Street Cat Named Bob. It was quite cheesy but easy too read and happy and that's what I needed.

GambitC13 15-06-2013 04:07 PM

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In a Ship Of Her Own Making. By Catherynne M Valente. Got to love the title!

lau_83 15-06-2013 05:00 PM

I'm currently re-reading the Harry Potter collection. I swear I'll never grow up at this rate :-)

Nave 16-06-2013 11:22 AM

I have recently re-read The Perks of being a wallflower. I first read this book in 2008 and its been a fav ever since.
Because its letter based, you can open it up at any page, and i find i can relate.

Its a book which has helped me through a lot. my copy is bashed and bruised and highlighted all over.

City of Lost Souls By Cassandra Clare

Tan.D 17-06-2013 01:31 PM

Hell's Corner by David Baldacci. It's interesting, one of the few "secret agent-ish" books that I like apart from the Bourne series.

I absolutely ADORE that book!!! I think I read it...last year? It still remains to be one of my favorite books..but then again every book I read finds a place on my Favorite Books list lol. I want to read it again it was that good. I just finished a book called Empty and it's set in a futuristic time period where oil has pretty much run out. This is my second time reading it and I definitely recommend it because it's so wonderful :D

Zedebee 24-06-2013 10:23 AM

Finished "Seriously...I'm kidding" by Ellen Degeneres and it is now one of my favourite books. Love it and her.

Started "The hobbit' by JRR T(something I can't spell). It's very different to what I usually read but liking it so far.

Also have "In for a penny" by Lynda Page on the go on my e reader.

Soviette 25-06-2013 08:59 PM

I just read The Turner Diaries written by some American Neo-Nazi.

I read it out of curiosity really, as it's banned in some countries and has been linked to Far Right terrorism (David Copeland, Timothy McVeigh, Anders Breivik)

It was rather dry, one dimensional and even comical to an extent since it's so farfetched, but I can see how it can offend the hell out of people if you're black/Jewish. Some of it is thought provoking to an extent, but it's drivel and propaganda, heaven knows how it inspired people to do f'ed up crap.

Vegetarian Vampire 28-06-2013 04:50 PM

Reading The maze runner by James Dashner. I'm disappointed :\ was expecting it to be really good but its average at best.

Finished Bravo Two Zero by Andy McNab yesterday. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would as war memoirs aren't usually my thing.

Just started NW by Zadie Smith. Looks interesting.

nowhereman 07-07-2013 11:51 PM

I thought I'd posted this, I am reading Song of the Lioness series, a friend sent them to me, I'm on the 4th and last book now.
