I started Darkfever - Karen Marie Moning, yesterday and am about halfway through already, really enjoying it.
The whole series is fantastic. It's probably my favourite Urban Fantasy series after Kim Harrison's The Hollows.

About to start "Angelmaker" by Nick Harkaway. "The Gone Away World" is one of my favourite books in the entire universe, so am hoping that this one will be added to that list

Also having a re-read. "Into the Darkest Corner" by Elizabeth Haynes.

Just finished "Catch Me" by Lisa Gardner. Quite enjoyed this especially as the Quincy's made a cameo appearance

Me too - we did the Woman in Black for GCSE years ago and I thought it was really atmospheric.

Eloise. Judy Finnigan.
I have never known a book to have so many spelling mistakes and even a couple of words missing. Shame on who proof read this...... or didn't.


Now reading Derek Tangye. The Confusion Room.

About to start The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. It's quite a hefty book but has had some very good reviews. Looking forward to it.
I am a big fan of Kate Morton and did enjoy this book

Currently reading Time Riders by Alex Scarrow. Really enjoying it so far, it's a YA novel but as usual I enjoy them as much (if not more!) than 'grown up' books.

I had to study The Great Gatsby for AS English Literature and never thought that I would enjoy reading it again but seeing as there is a film coming out soon I thought it would be a good idea to refresh my memory. I'm enjoying it so far.

Under the Dome - Stephen King
Rather glad I finished this, as I became more desperate and drepressed as the story progressed.
I was sucked intto the story and since then, I haven't been able to thinnk about anything else
Riveting story telling, likeable good guys, violent bad guys and a whole lot of shooting going on.
Now it's out of my system, I'm going to read something light and undemanding.

Just finished Dark Matter by Michelle Paver.

Extremely well-written and very evocative of its arctic setting, though as a ghost story it did feel a little anti-climactic. Perhaps it would've worked better as short story (there's a strong element of M.R. James about it), but overall as a few nights spooky entertainment it works well enough.

Now onto something a bit weightier which has been staring at me from the bookcase for ages: The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen

Yes she writes beautifully although I sometimes wish she'd get to the point a bit sooner! Good story though.

One of the few books I'd consider reading again. Simply brilliant (and you're right, you do get completely drawn in and the characters become real).

Not read the book but have been meaning to.

I saw the BBC television film made of it in the mid-nineties and thought that was very good indeed, so I've often wondered how they compare.

The Hollywood Book of Death by James Parrish
A collection of very short biographies of various Hollywood stars and the manner of their passing.
Not as ghoulish as it sounds - honest!

I read somewhere, probably on here, that Seven Pillars of Wisdom was a difficult read.... so I thought I'd have a go.

Throw myself in at the deep end

Currently reading Warm Bodies - Isaac Marion after reading some positive reviews on Goodreads and thought I'd check it out. Zombies aren't really my thing but the synopsis sounded a little different from the average brain munching stuff around, so hopefully it'll be good.

I've just finished No Child of Mine by Susan Lewis and found it really gripping. Just one minor gripe tho - the character of Alex was just too good to be true. She didn't appear to have any faults! But it was a darn good read anyhow.

Finished Can You Forgive Her ? .. The first of Trollope's Palliser novels .. I've read a couple in the series before .. they are not as accessible as the Barsetshire Chronicles .. but if you like a bit of 19th century political intrigue they'r great. This tale is a but strung out to be honest .. but there's wonderful characters such as Chessacre and Bellfield to lighten the mood!
