The Silmarillion - JRR Tolkien

I blame Blind Guardian for making me want to read this.

Got bored of reading Snakes in Suits too many times, moved onto;

The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R Tolkien, this book looks epic, has well over 1000 pages.

Just finishing the last couple of chapters of Beautiful child by Torey Hayden. Also halfway through The Hunger games.

I've got this but still haven't gotten around to reading it. Would you recommend it?

Zed, you probably remember I tried to read it before but couldn't really get into it. When I continued with it the second time I managed to get more into it and thought it was worth reading. It's different from her other books as it's more about the woman than the children.

Such a beautiful book! Would recommend One More Day by him too if you like it, one of my favourites but quite emotional actually.

Just finished The Fault In Our Stars ~ John Green (and yes I did cry xP)
Planning to finish Papillon (though its taking its time, 650 pages!) then move on to:

Great Gatsby - Fitzgerald.
To the Lighthouse - Virginia Woolf.
Of Love and Other Demons - Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Therese Desqueyroux - Francois Mauriac.

I am currently reading a Dutch book by a girl with depression and self-harm issues aobout her recovery after leaving the psych ward. The author is Charlee Bee for any Dutchpeople out here.

I didn't get hooked on Bird's Nest Soup so i'm now trying to read Busy Body: My Life With Tourette's Syndrome - Nick Van Bloss.

The Borderline Personality Disorder Survival Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Living with BPD By Alexander Chapman and Kim Gratz

The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox - Maggie O'Farrell.

I don't think it's something that I would choose to read but someone said I should give it a go.

one_step_closer 28-05-2012 03:56 PM

Enjoyed The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, finished it yesterday and would recommend it.

Now reading Mummy Doesn't Love You - Alexander Sinclair.

Game of Thrones book four: A Feast for Crows. I'm enjoying it, even with all the dramatic character events.

have finished it quite long time ago.

lildarkone 29-05-2012 12:20 PM

All It Took was You - Ali Vali
The Door at the Top of the Stairs - Alison Holt (This book was extremly hard to get through because it's main character is a woman who went through horrific times and surpressed the memories, but you go through the recovery she does so by the end you feel just as free as her)

turnbacktheclock 29-05-2012 06:02 PM

I just finished A Midsummer Night's Dream. Yes, Shakespeare... and I didn't even read it because I had to. I'm an English nerd.
