I've just finished 'The virgin suicides'.Useless to say I found the movie a million times better than the book.

I'm now reading 'The House of Sleep' by Jonathon Coe, which is brilliant.

I've read The House of Sleep and though it was great. I also read another Coe novel but can't remember the name off top of my head. He's on my list for other reads.

The Time Travelers Wife for the second time, it's amazing :).

I FINALLY finished 'Bloodletting' By Victoria Leatham. I didn't think it was as bad as people said it was, though the ending was a little 'off'. Though it did take me over a month to read..when I was reading it, it was 'gripping' but when it was sitting on the bedside table it didn't make me want to read it.

Am about to start 'Good girls do swallow' By Rachael Oakes-Ash

Ooh, let me know if it's any good. I want to read that at some point.

I'm now reading 'A Year in Provence' - Peter Mayle. I like it so far.

Will do, I haven't started it yet though..I am a slow reader to the point that I can't actually pick the book up =p

The War Doctor 02-03-2010 04:28 PM

Today I finished Shadow of a Dark Queen by Raymond E. Feist. I'm not a big fan of fantasy, and that boring, predictable, cliché-ridden piece of trash is precisely why. It's not the longest I've ever spent reading a book, but it bloody felt like it.

I also read Waiting For Godot by Samuel Beckett, which I loved. In all its bizarre, unresolved glory.

I'm currently reading (by which I mean I'll start it today at some point) a biography of Allen Ginsberg, written by Barry Miles.

And after that I plan to read Catch-22 by Joseph Heller.

Just finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, which I loved. Now I'm reading Whispers: The Voices of Paranoia, which I'm not sure that I like yet.

Paradise Lost.
Because I'm brooding and interesting.

I'm going to start reading The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson. I hope it is as good as the 1st one in the Millenium trilogy.

ThinkingofRecovery 05-03-2010 07:57 PM


It is drawing me in just like the 1st one. Fantastic

I finished Cabal: The Nightbreed by Clive Barker the other day, pretty interesting and strange tale and a good read which was pretty easy to get through.

Currently reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and re-reading Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban which is tied with Goblet for my fave Potter book.

Devil Girl 07-03-2010 01:40 PM

Been a while since I updated this.

I have read Sectioned: A Life Interrupted By John O'Donoghue - began okay but then it got a bit boring and repetitive at the end.

Read Peter Pan in Scarlet - I didn't enjoy it that much, think it was maybe too young for me.

Read Thirteen Reasons Why By Jay Asher - quick read that kept you reading, but lacked substance.

About to start Eight Stories Up: An Adolescent Chooses Hope Over Suicide By Dequincy A. Lezine - another book in the 'Adolescent Mental Health Initiative'

ThinkingofRecovery 07-03-2010 09:38 PM

Just finished The Girl Who Played with Fire and started on The Luminous Life of Lilly Aphrodite by Beatrice Colin

I'm currently reading Open House by Jill Mansell. I'm really in to her books at the moment as they are light, easy reads.

Sparky! 08-03-2010 02:54 PM

I have just read 'Red Tears' by someoneorother and now I'm reading 'The Madolescents' by Chrissie Glazebrook. Think I need to introduce something less emo into my reading list. I am enjoying 'The Madolescents' though and 'Red Tears' was okay, I think I'd have enjoyed it a lot more when I was younger.

linder surprise 08-03-2010 03:11 PM

haha i read the madolescents when i was like 15, i thought nobody else had heard of that book. it's pretty poor really.
