  1. I had this book on my bookshelves for a couple of years and never read it, so a few months back, I donated it to a Charity Shop. Ever since then I've heard nothing but praise for it and I'm so annoyed at myself for giving it away. I might have to repurchase it at some point, To see what the hype is about. My reading has finally picked up again, so I read a couple of Diane Chamberlain's book. The first I read was The Midwives Confession, which was really good. It was a tad confusing, keeping track of so many characters (one of my bookish pet peeves is loads of characters), but it was a rea
  2. I remember reading a Sweet Valley book. I can't remember what it was, but I think it was sort of a thriller. Something about a film set maybe? My minds blank! I finished Gayle Forman's If I Stay yesterday. I have to say I was slightly disappoined by it. I watched the movie adaption a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, so I expected the book to be even better (because the book always is, right?) but I just didnt really feel anything when I was reading the book. I was kind of glad to finish it, to be honest. I have the sequal (Where She Went) to read next, which apparently a lot of people thin
  3. I started The Girl on the Train on Monday (I think it was Monday anyway!) and I finished it about 10 minutes ago. I thought it was ok, but that's as excited as I can get. It didn't grip me as much as I was expecting it to, and I found myself not really liking any of the characters, nor particularly caring what would happen to them by the end of the book. I liked the book. It was quite well written, but I didn't find it particularly exciting either. I guess for me it's more of a "I'm glad I can at least say I've read it" type of book, rather than a "I'm SO glad I read it" book.
  4. My parents have been trying to convince me to get a Kindle for ages, so I tried my Mum's a few weeks ago to see if I liked it, and I just couldn't read on it at all. I felt really distracted and very aware of everything going on around me in the room, something that I don't get with the physical book. I bought 2 more books yesterday too (I keep trying to put myself on a book buying ban until I've read my current tbr's, but it's too difficult when I walk passed so many beautiful books. I have no willpower). I bought Where She Went by Gayle Forman (The sequel to If I Stay, which I haven't yet r
  5. Well despite my earlier post I've instead started a different book entirely - 'Follow You Home' by Mark Edwards, it came up in the Thriller bestsellers and caught my eye. I'm constantly changing the book I'm planning to read next to a different one. It's so easy to get distracted by something else once it catches my eye. I bought two new ones today too. Fire and Rain by Diane Chamberlain (one of her very earliest releases and with possibly the ugliest dust jacket on my bookshelf. If I judged books by covers, I wouldn't have bought it in amillion years.) and THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN!! Basically,
  6. The first Diane Chamberlain book I read (The Lost Daughter) was originally recommended (on BTTB, I think!) to me "as a fan of Jodi Picoult"...... Whilst I appreciate they're both great writers, and both write about hard-hitting subjects, I personally feel that's where the similarities end. I don't know why (and I'm not suggesting Diane Chamberlain isn't as good a writer as JP) but when I read a DC book, I'm always very aware its fictional. Whereas when I read Jodi's, it's like I'm living them. I guess it's just very much down to personal opinions though. (And I will say that The Lost Daughter
  7. That's what I'm trying to do too. It was only really about February-ish this year that I really got back into reading after a good year or so of just not doing much of it. By the time I started reading again, I had 5 (only 5, but still) fairly large books on my shelves still to be read. I started with one of those and just really focused on getting through that to read pile before getting any new ones. Once I started them, I pretty much didn't stop (the situation wasn't - or maybe was, depending on the way you look at it - helped by the fact I was going through a really hard time in my persona
  8. Just totally freaked out because I couldn't find the "what book?" topic Liking the title change though Dan! and so glad for it. I've been on a major readig craze of late and I don't really know many others that read that I can discuss with, so I'm really glad wr have this topic. I'm still reading All The Bright Places. I'm just over half way through now, and it's so, so good. I went into it with fairly low expectations, because I knew it was a YA book, and I don't read much YA any more, but I'm so pleasently surprised. Provided real life doesn't get in the way, I'll hopefully have it fini
  9. 3 books: All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven If I Stay by Gayle Forman Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen (I've never read a "classic" book. The closest I have ever come to classics is when we studied Shakespeare in school, but I really want to read more, especially Jane Austen)
  10. I'm so torn over whether I want to read that or not. I've heard so much about it, and it sounds quite good, but I've also heard a lot of mixed reviews, and now I'm not sure. Are you enjoying it? I'm currently reading Don't Let Me Go by Susan Lewis. It's the sequel to No Child Of Mine which I read before it and loved. It's on my 'To Read' list too, along with countless others on the Kindle, would be interesting to hear what others think without spoiling. Discussion in here seems very rare nowadays, more just people listing books (sometimes suspiciously quickly ) Sorry only seeing this now. I a
  11. The Truth About Ruby Valentine by Alison Bond. It's a re-read, since I've had this book for a long time, but I really love it.

  13. Wow, has it really been over a year since my last update?! Time flies. Thank you for the comments left previously. I really do appreciate them so much, even if I don't always say it. Anyway, I haven't actually watched H&A in a long time, but I've been in an icon making mood of late, and H&A is probably the easiest thing to make icons of, so I just made this little Maddie (Maddy?) batch. I don't know if I'll update this thread much more, it depends on my creative mood, but I hope you guys like this little update anyway
  14. Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop by Jenny Colgan. It's not my normal type of book. It's not very dramatic and there's no deep story to it (so far), but I'm hoping it'll help kick the festive spirit in.
  15. Boney M - Mary's Boy Child. It makes me happy that it's finally an acceptable time of the year to listen to Christmas Songs.
