Can I ask how are you finding Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?

-------------------- 26-02-2014 01:29 PM

Its interesting. No luck finding these creatures yet though.
The scribbles from Harry, Ron and Hermione are pretty amusing.

Have you read it?

MissGranger 26-02-2014 03:40 PM

It sounds good! No I haven't yet but I hope to soon.

I need this book!

Oh! I just bought this book along with The Magician: The Secrets of the IImmortal Nicholas Flamel

Both fun reads.

Yesterday I finished A Delusion Of Satan by Frances Hill. It was a very interesting insight into the Salem Witch Trials, though I felt the author's opinions on the psychology behind it a little bit flimsy and reliant on outmoded Freudian theories. Still a compelling read though.

I also got started on a collection of Doctor Who ebooks which were made into a large printed volume for the show's 50th anniversary. I read two of the stories, one of which was good, the other was utter garbage, but then again it was written by Eoin Colfer so only a fool would expect good things there.

I just started a game of thrones.

Ive been looking at these books at the book shop for years but always thought they would be really difficult to read. I am normally not too fond of series that are more than 3-5 books at most and as i knew there would be more in this series i kept away from them.

However i could get all 5 really cheap and i like fantasy and the first season on tv. (Havent seen more than that) and i found out that it is not hard to read at all. I am reading it in english (danish is my first language) and i have no trouble understanding it at all. So far i am entertained.

I envy you. GoT is amazing. So many subplots later on in the series that a second read through is a must!

The War Doctor 28-02-2014 04:54 PM

A Song of Ice and Fire is one of my favourite book series', I finished the fifth book a few months ago and am eagerly awaiting the sixth. I hope you enjoy it!

I am re-reading Harry Potter & The Prisoner Of Azkaban for like the 20th time! & I am also reading A Song Of Ice & Fire... on A Clash Of Kings right now... somebody said A Dance Of Dragons was a bit dissapointing.... worth reading, do you think?

I don't think A Dance of Dragons is disappointing. A Feast For Crows is a bit of a drag though, it's very slow moving and not as exciting as the other books in the series. Still worth reading, but definitely a bit of a come-down from Storm of Swords.

Currently reading Kenobi. Really really good, am enjoying it a lot.

Tig 03-03-2014 10:22 PM

I've just finished reading 'Don't You Forget About Me' by Alexandra Potter which was such a feel-good book and an easy read.

Now moved on to 'Play Dead' by Harlan Coben.

This morning I started reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, which was recommended to me by my girlfriend. I've gotten through about 160 pages just today. I don't remember the last time I was so engrossed in a book.
