    Learned that one the hard way!


    I'm reading De Niro: A Biography, Who Runs Britain? by Robert Peston, The Fatal Equilibrium by Marshall Jevons, The Shining, and finally Checkmate by Malorie Blackman....and last night I finished rereading Harry Potter 7.

    I read a lot at once :yep:.

    The Shining - Stephen King.

    I absolutely love the film and I bought the book a year or so ago, but have only just got around to reading it. It's strange, the film doesn't scare me that much, but the book's really getting to me. I was absolutely petrified in bed last night. Still, I'm determined to finish it.
    I love this book, it's one of my favourites and there are many differences to the film adaptation, which make the novel so disturbing. There are so many brilliant scenes

    I am currently reading Dracula by Bram Stoker, which is brilliant.

    For want of anything else I started reading Stravaganza: City of Secrets last night (by Mary Hoffman). But I only re-read that series recently so I might look for something else today. Everything seems kind of dull after reading Prey, though.

    I need more books :sad:

    Dad found another Crichton book lying around the house (why was I not informed earlier?!) so I've started reading that. It's Airframe, and it's kinda putting me off flying to America for my third year of uni... Brilliant though, classic Crichton.

    Finished Armadale finally. Another great Collins novel, but i can see why The Moonstone is regarded as superior. Lydia Gwilt is undoubtedly the wickedest villainess from the Victorian Novel - and makes for a thrilling, but unbelievable read!

    Starting Desperate Remedies by Thomas Hardy.

    I love the Stravaganza series, I think I might read them all again soon, my mum currently is. Hope she's going to bring a new one out soon.

    I'm reading a load of rubbishy chick-lit at the moment, but I think I might work my way through the Swallows and Amazons series soon :o: I've been working in a primary school recently and I have a real urge to get all my Enid Blyton books out of the loft and read all of the Famous Five, Malory Towers and St Clare's books again :woo:

    She's bringing out a new one in 2010, set in Classe. I think it's called City of Ships.

    Oh yeah, books. I finished Airframe by Michael Crichton yesterday. Bought Sphere this morning, finished it about half 8 (took a break to watch Doctor Who though). AMAZING book, one of the best I've ever read.

    Now moving onto Next which I bought yesterday. All classic Crichton :love:

    This is my favourite thread as it makes me get my books out but it doesn't get updated as much as it should!

    Currently trying to finish The Amber spyglass by Pullman, but after a considerable break from finishing the last two in the series, i'm finding that i now really dislike his writing style. :tongue:
