    Whizzing through Desperate Remedies by Thomas Hardy. It's throughly entertaining and feels less laboured than his other works. Although his frequent allusion to other texts does interupt the flow somewhat.

    I'm currently reading Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, which is very entertaining, occasionally flicking through Paradise Lost by John Milton, and also reading Literary Theory: An Introduction in preparation for my course in september.

    Currently reading 'Once in a house on fire' by Andrea Ashworth, for about the third time, as part of my course. And about to start reading E.H. Gombrich's 'A Little History of the World'.

    I agree, Wasted is an amazing book. It's unlike any other eating disorder memoir. Hornbacher isn't afraid to hold back which is important in trying to defeat the stigmas of anorexia and bulimia. As an eating disordered person myself I could relate to it a lot, and I respect how she was honest in how she didn't just have anorexia for a few years, got hospitalised and then just recovered. I would recommend this book to anyone - I'm not a big reader but I found myself glued to it!

    Just started Rabbit, Run by John Updike. I tend to shy away from 20th Century American Fiction as i find the style is often purposefully empty. I'm enjoying it so far, although expecting to read it slowly as i'm preoccupied with Uni work. =/

    I just bought The Dante Club- Matthew Pearl. I don't generally like any modern novels (a sweeping generalisation, but sadly it's true!) but I like a bit of Dante's Divine Comedy, and the plot revolves around Inferno :yep:

    I'm also reading on and off:
    The Name of the Rose- Umberto Eco
    Bleak House- Dickens (God, when it's not Esther's narrative I just can't be arsed with it, even though the story is interesting )
