Oh, I think I almost bought that at one point Lindsay. Let me know if it's any good!

Can you get recommendations from Amazon? Or join Goodreads, that can be ok for recommendations and it's fun to keep a track of what you and your friends are reading.

I Am, I Am, I Am? I got it from the library, it's ok so far.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

I gave this 3 stars (liked it) although I did consider giving it 2 (it was ok). It was readable and some parts were more interesting than others, which is maybe a horrible thing to say about a memoir. It wasn't really captivating in my opinion.

Now reading Echoes In Death - J. D. Robb, for library reading group.

I might not bother reading it then!

Other people seemed to really like it, maybe I was being harsh!

Finished Half In Love With Death: Managing The Chronically Suicidal Patient - Joel Pars. Gave it 2 stars (it was ok) based on my perceptions as a chronically suicidal person. Maybe practitioners would have liked it more, it's an American book mainly for psychotherapists I think.

Still reading Echoes In Death - J. D. Robb. Bored of it already.

Also reading Happy - Fearne Cotton. Wasn't going to read this but saw it for 75p in a charity shop so decided to get it.

What did you think of Happy, Lindsay? I've started reading it but haven't got far yet.

I've just read Come a Little Closer by Rachel Abbott. I didn't love it, but it was okay.

I gave Happy 3 stars (liked it) I didn't get anything from it to be honest but I think it could be useful for people with lower level MH issues. It was a little repetitive at points.

Still reading Echoes In Death.

Also reading Bookworm: A Memoir Of Childhood Reading - Lucy Mangan.

Free books can be a bit rubbish most times! Unless it was a deal you got? I used to download free books but I don't do it much any more.

I am currently:

Finished Alice and Red Queen by Christina Henry.

4/5 - Loved it very much. Very dark and graphic depictions of child abuse, but a fantastic take on a different version of Alice in Wonderland.

Currently reading Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky - it's really good so far, but only read about 20%. And Friend Request by Laura Marshall which is a really stupid book but I've nearly finished it so I may as well. Maybe there'll be a twist near the end.




Imperfection is underrated.

Icecream girls-Dorothy Koomson- 4/5 my second attempt to read this, first time was a couple of years ago in a psych ward when on haloperidol which made reading nigh on impossible. This time round, really intriguing plot and characters, some bits a little bit like baggage but generally a fantastic book that keeps you guessing. Warning though, some pretty heavy abuse themes at times, and some mentions of self harm which I really wasn't expecting.

I'm so glad this is over. Gave it 2 stars (it was ok) since I finished it but I only finished it because I thought I should for the reading group.

I gave this 3 stars officially (liked it) but actually meant 2.5 stars. I was close to choosing 2 stars (it was ok) but thought I'd be kind since this is Cathy Glass writing as Lisa Stone. I found the book kind of uninteresting and had very violent sex scenes etc which put me off reading it on the bus!

Now reading Sister Psychopath - Maggie James.

In my opinion it wasn't great, she has written a second book as Lisa Stone though and I will probably give that a try.

Let me know what you think of the second 'Lisa Stone' one, read other reviews as well and don't think I'll bother with the first.
