This is one of my top recommendations to people. It's brilliant.

Recently finished The men who stare at goats by Jon Ronson (love the bloke). Very entertaining. Now reading Dune by Frank Herbert and it's good, but potentially too much of a mix of Philip K Dick and Lord of the Rings.

A Farewell To Arms by Hemingway. It is pretty gosh darn awesome.

I'm reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It's interesting but not my style - every paragraph is written to try and make you ponder the meaning of everything and it's getting on my nerves a bit. It is in no way subtle and it's very repetitive. I'm struggling to enjoy reading at the minute :/

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

I love it.

Eclipse By Stephanie Myer - I have never really liked the Twilight Saga but my friend has been at me for years to read them so I have slowly over these years got myself through...It isn't too bad, but I think that's because I no I don't like them so am trying not to think too much when I read it.

I know a lot of people were hooked on these books but it hasn't happened for me.

When I read the Twilight series (before the films came out) I loved it. Not sure how i'd feel about reading it now.

Thinking In Pictures by Temple Grandin, describing her life with Autism. It's good, very interesting, it teaches how it relates to sensory processing.

This! I loved them when I read them before the films came out. I don't think I could read them again now though.

At the minute I'm reading Ozzy Osbournes: I Am Ozzy.

I've got this to read next. Is it good?

Currently reading Sick Notes by Tony Copperfield.

Lollipop Shoes by Joanne Harris. Loving it so much, and I'm only a couple of chapters in. Shortish chapters at that.

Currently reading Brass Ring by Diane Chamberlain it's really really good, if you like Jodi Picoult this is a book for you, but just be aware there are some abuse triggers in it.
