The Patrick Melrose Novels by Edward St Aubyn.
Bag of Bones - Stephen King must have been having a midlife crisis when he wrote this one.
Reading The Crystal Line...Anne McCaffrey, for the umpteenth time. I am going through all my books by her again.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Really liking it so far and I don't normally like fantasy type stuff.
I've mislaid my kindle and I am bereft. It's not like I don't have plenty of paper books but that feeling of being unable to finish what you were reading is like having an itch you can't scratch, argh.
EveryWoman by Jess Phillips
Anyone read "The Wife" by Meg Wolitzer?
I read it recently, the movie is out, with Glen Close.
I enjoyed it, but I kind of didn't. I do recommend it though
I am reading Red Star Rising by Anne McCaffrey, I am going through her Pern books in chronological order.
I've found it Phew.
Currently on the go I have The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney and a biography of Ota Benga by Pamela Newkirk - Spectacle. A thoroughly depressing story of a human being put on display like an animal at the turn of the last century.
Not liking that Spectacle is depressing, but that you found your Kindle
Still slowly making my way though American Gods, fell asleep reading it last night and had some rather odd dreams LOL!
I read a wide range of things from chick lit (feel good factor!) to crime thrillers. Always on the look out for something new to try though I have to pace myself as once I’m into a good book I can’t put it down !
I read a lot of chic lit, it is escapism. Get those from charity shops & after reading them return them to a different charity shop, else I tend to buy the same book back again, having forgotten I have already read it.
I think reading is escapism in itself, it’s something that’s just for the reader and gives you a broader mind.
Was an avid reader until about two years ago.
Not exactly sure why I've stopped, probably a mixture of tiredness at the end of the day and not finding something to interest me.
So today I went to my local library for a browse, came home with these ...
One fiction and one autobiography.
Read Mac's first book so I'm quite confident I can get through at least one of these book
I went through a similar period several years ago where I just stopped reading for a while, not sure why. It's like riding a bike though, being a bookworm
I'd be interested to hear how you get on with Miss Carter's War; I didn't know Sheila Hancock wrote as well.
She's very good at words on the radio 4 show Just a minute.
I didn't know she wrote fiction (have her book about John Thaw) but thought I'd give her a chance.
I'm currently on the Broken lands series by T.A white. I love it when I find a good fantasy without a ott 'special' heroine, in this series she's gotten to where she is by hard work and no special powers to aide her.. I can't stop reading, on book 2 now (even risked my kindle in the bath just so I didn't have to stop )
I love a good crime thriller, read lots of James Patterson, mo harder, John Grisham that kind of thing. At the mo I'm reading Thirteen by Steve cavanagh. When I was dog sitting for my daughter at the weekend, her mastiff pup decided to have a bit of a nibble on it while I was in the shower, very thoughtfully he only ate the chapters I'd already read though! What a good lad !
Due to reading just one chapter of the John McEnroe book I've now booked tickets to see him play in the Albert Hall on the 6th December.
I'm reading Wall of Winipeg by Mariana Zapata. Some may consider her stories a bit slow, but I like how she develops her characters.
