Melancholic anicca - I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower must read it again, but didn't enjoy The Catcher in the Rye but it is a lot of people's favourite book so hope you enjoy it!

Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris.
(The second book in the Trueblood series).

Highly recommed the series!

Mistaken Identity
by the Van Ryn and Cerak family with Mark Tabb

...it is actually based on a true story about how one girl was burried under under the wrong name, and another girl in a coma who is being cared for by the wrong family.

it is quite interesting

I'm now reading 'Lucky' - Alice Sebold. It's quite good.

ooooh I havnt read that yet although I do have it... you will have to let me know what its like:)

Lozza that book sounds really interesting! May look it up - though I have far too many books to read just now!

I might read Lucky depending how I get on with The Lovely Bones after my Gran has finished with it.

I really want to go and buy lots of books - also saw some for 1 that I would like in Asda but I have about 30 books to read so trying to get through them first - but so many books sound good!!

Sparky! 12-01-2010 08:40 PM

You can never have too many books!

Also - just to say, don't decide whether or not to read 'Lucky' based on what you think of 'The Lovely Bones'. I read 'TLB' and quite liked it, it was alright but fairly average. But I'm really, really enjoying (if that's the right word!) 'Lucky'. They're really quite different.

'Metamorphosis' - Franz Kafka. A bit odd but really good so far!
And re-reading Harry Potter no.5 (again!)

Second Chance 13-01-2010 11:31 AM

The Lovely Bones. I'm not sure if I like it though.

Atm I'm reading 'The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership: Follow them and people will follow you' by John C. Maxwell.

I have to do a book review on it, its really interesting, better than I thought it would be

I've got The Book Thief by Markus Zusak on my bedside table to read.
I really want to, but it's narrated by death which puts me off starting it slightly! x

Sparky! 14-01-2010 04:30 AM

I really liked 'Lucky'.

Now reading 'Mad, Bad and Sad: A History of Women and the Mind Doctors from 1800 to the Present' - Lisa Appignanesi.

Snow-In-Wonderland 14-01-2010 05:04 PM

I just finished the 'Wheel of Time' series by Robert Jordan =D I would definitely recommend it!

Kafka is brilliant. A little tough to figure out at times, but brilliant.

Last read: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer. I can't see myself reading it again. I liked it fine, but there's only so much poetry a man can take.

Currently reading: The Outsider (or The Stranger depending on publisher) by Albert Camus. I've read it before, multiple times, but I love it.

Next: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.

linder surprise 15-01-2010 04:35 PM

i think the outsider is much better reading the second time 'round. the first time i read it i found it kindof boring. but for some reason the second time was much more fun.

The One Who 15-01-2010 04:39 PM

I would recommend Camus' Stranger/Outsider too. Quite short, and easy to read.

I'm currently trying to work my way through Foucault books. Academic, but quite easy and interesting. I don't have time to read anything non-academic :(

Wonderful. 16-01-2010 09:00 PM

Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin (Just read) Loveddd it.

Am currently reading A Certain Age by Rebecca Ray.
But I can't really get into it, so I've put it aside for a while and am reading The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult.

x-dying-inside-x 16-01-2010 09:07 PM

I'm reading Jane Eyre again.

Serenade 16-01-2010 09:27 PM

I'm reading Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carrol and also Under The Dome by Stephen King.

Wakeful Dreamer. 17-01-2010 05:31 AM

I just finished Aimee, by Mary Beth Miller and You Know Where To Find Me, by Rachel Cohn.
I loved one and disliked the other.
Now I'm reading a couple of psychology books.
