Well, while I was on holiday last week I read:
Manhunt by Christian Jacq
Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and someone who I can't remember
All three were really good. Now I'm reading For One More Day by Mitch Albom
The disturbing world of the psychopaths among us.
I've just finished reading "The book with no Name" by Anon.
It was good, one of those books that really keeps you intrigued, ended up reading it in huge chunks!
I've an enormous pile of books to be reading. Going to start on a book called "The Mysteries of Pittsburgh" by Michael Chabon
Also in the middle of reading "The man who mistook his wife for a hat" by Oliver Sacks, it's brilliant.
due to important exams tomorrow and friday, I haven't had time to do any leisure reading. But I'm free after Friday morning, so my booklist for the summer is as follows:
Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hern- to finish, I got halfway through it last week but had to put it aside to revise.
The Kite Runner
Dead and Loving it! by MaryJanice Davidson
The Chronicles of Narnia- going to reread the series
The Sword of Shannara Trilogy by Terry Brooks
A Gathering Light by Jennifer Donnelly
Pretty much in that order (apart from the last one, it's a library book so I'll read it first). Should keep me entertained for a while.
Just starting Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It's such a change to be reading a book that isn't heavily based around science fiction.
I just read The Lovely Bones. Did not enjoy.
I've just started reading The Inheritance of Loss- Kiran Desai, I've had it a while now but have been waiting for exams to finish before I started it.
Perfect Match - Jodi Picoult.
Young Stalin- Simon Seabag Montefiore
Le Grande Meaulnes by Alain Fournier- my english teacher bought it for me as a leaving present, I started it this evening and about halfway through already, loving it! I recommend!
What are you thinking of Young Stalin blondevalkyrie? I heard good things about it when it first came out and keep meaning to invest as my library doesn't have it! grr!
Dostoyevsky- Notes from the Underground.
Not sure yet. Seems to be making more sense now I've got on to the part 2 bit.
Read Enduring Love by Ian McEwan last night. Wasn't keen on it, the story was decent but the characters were just plain irritating.
I'm planning on starting Cloud Atlas tonight if I'm in the mood.
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood.
