Can some one here please recommend me a novel to read, just a story i could read to improve my vocabulary, just any intresting/fun read....
The Autograph Man by Zadie Smith.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Marshmallows for Breakfast - Dorothy Koomson. I actually cannot put this book down - it's absolutely fantastic!
David Hewson; The sacred Cut.
All these books you've mentioned are fantastic, alot of them are my favourites.
I'm really into biography/autobiographys at the moment, just finishing the second Johnny Cash one then going to read June Carters, and I have loads on the Beatles I want to read this summer too.
I always seem to have about three books on the go. At the moment I'm reading:
Catch-22 (For the third time - my favourite book EVER)
Alexander the Great by Robin Lane Fox
Caesar by Adrian Goldsworthy (Classics nerd? Me?)
Well the book I was thinking of reading next is Sebastian Faulkes' Birdsong but it looks awfully big and I'm not sure if it's worth it, knowing little about the book. Any thoughts?
Just read 'The Beach' by Alex Garland (quite a bit better than the film), and the 'Foundation Trilogy' by Isaac Asimov (which was ok...the first book in the trilogy is the best, probably because the actual story isn't that reliant on sci-fi stuff to drive the story onwards...the last two become a bit silly).
Am still reading 'Middlemarch' by George Eliot (been reading it for about a month, am about a quarter of the way through...), and am about to start 'The 39 Steps' by John Buchan, and 'Brazzaville Beach' by William Boyd.
I've just finished 'best friend's girl' by dorothy koomson - was ace!
eleven minutes - paulo coelho, amazing author
I'm reading Cecelia Ahern - PS I Love You at the moment....such an amazing book. I'm hoping to read "The Interpretation of Murder" by Jed Rubenfeld once i've finished this one. Anyone read any of these before? xx
I'm reading King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard. It's unexpectedly brilliant in my opinion!
