    I'm currently reading a book called The Charmer, it turns out that the first half is basically (not brilliantly edited) soft porn. Sort of boggled the mind when I woke up the other morning and read about...certain events that imprinted on my mind for the rest of the day. However, it was free, so I can't really complain.

    Can complain that the ****ing Kindle is broken again however. I don't want to read my soft porn on a laptop screen damnit!

    ooh, i love the film! is the film based on the book, or is it a book based on the film? who's it by?
    The film is based on the book, but I personally find the film more interesting because the characters are much more developed (of course, the film-makers added some things of their own).
    For example, Lisa. She's quite an obscure figure in the book, almost marginal. But Angelina Jolie's performance made her practically the centre of the whole film. Such a mighty slim sociopath!
    On the other hand, Susanna's inner world is definitely more gripping in the book (the ending was really touching whereas at this point the film ending failed )

    P.S. The book's author is Susanna Kaysen.

    sounds good, thanks for that. I'll have a look to see if i can get in on my lovely kindle! have you read one flew over the cuckoo's nest? Again, the film's based on the book, and they're similary but not quite the same. worth a read xx

    Just finished Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith as soon as it was delivered, really good thriller. Unfortunately I've already read the one that comes after it too recently so I can't make it into a proper little marathon.

    I actually really do like it! It's the first Dicken's book I have read and it came as a pleasant suprise that the writing isn't archaic at all, like most people had told me.

    One Day by David Nicholls

    I'm feeling romantic summer reads. Forgive me, I just finished Taming of the Shrew and needed to scrub off that hilarious misogyny.

    Cold War - Gaddis
    Just started reading it the other day. Only a third of the way through but I'm not enjoying it too much due to the fact it's too brief. To be fair, I should've expected it from when he explained the difficulty of summarising the Cold War in under 300 pages. Determined to finish it though since it will be a nice recap from A2 History.

    In addition, reading Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet by David Mitchell.
