    I know its random but i am a bookworm always have been!!

    I read:

    Non fiction:

    General animal books
    Detailed animal books
    Breeds of animal books
    Nature books
    Basically any animal books LOL!! :lol: :lol:

    For fiction:

    Chick lit!

    All sorts of books by lots of different authors. But i love books that are based in the now not back in time! Lol!!

    However i have read a few Josephine Cox which are based in the past. I did enjoy them but i don't buy them i borrow them off my Gran :lol:

    I have also read a few Jodie Picoults

    A bare few of the authors i like:

    Lindsay Kelk (awesome! I have read both her books and waiting for July for her 3rd to be released!)

    Louise Bagshawe

    Tasmina Perry

    Sophie Kinsella

    Also do you buy all your books new? I have had to recently as some of the authors i like are only just releasing again. But i will go to charity shops etc to buy as well! I spend sooooo much on books its crazy!!!

    Horrors (my favourite author in that genre is James Herbert)
    Fantasy (my fav being Terry Pratchett)
    Romcom (relatively new this one is and I love Marian Keyes)

    I tend to read whatever takes my fancy. I have about 10 Stephen King books waiting to be read including 3 of the Vampire Diaries books but I don't have the energy anymore...

    Forgot to add that I don't buy all my books new :) Luna ripped one of my beloved James Herbert books before I finished reading it and I found another copy in the RSPCA for about 50p :D

    Oooh how can anyone read horror or crime :scared: :eek:

    I read one book once that was a crime solving murder thing..........i didn't sleep for weeks :frown: i even slept to my dads house for a couple of nights :eek:

    I am scared of anything like that! I read closer mag sometimes (they have unbelievable real life stories :eek:) and i turned the page to see a horror movie advertised on a full page (strangers it was called i think) again i didn't sleep that night at all and only had snatches of sleep throught the month! I still freak out now :eek: and that was just a page in a magazine :lol:

    I liked Jodie Picoults it really makes you think!!

    What does Marian keyes write about? Is it set in the 'now' or in the past??? I haven't read one of hers so i am interested!

    She writes about 'now'. The first one I read was Anybody Out There? It was absolutely hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time :)

    She is such a funny woman and a brilliant writer! I'm now reading This Charming Man

    Some quotes for Anybody Out There?

    "Nothing sinister. Just getting exercise. Although some might consider that sinister."

    "...as you know, I don't believe in fear, just an invention by men so they get all the money and good jobs..."

    "Didn't go in, just hovered outside like homeless person because (a) place was too small and Detta would have spotted me, and (b) once you're through doors of shop like that, if you try to leave without buying anything, they shoot you in the back with sniper's rifle."

    There's a brilliant bit where the girl in the story's sister is bit on the bum by a dog :lol:

    This could take a while

    Fantasy especially the wheel of time, lord of the rings, harry potter and a song of ice and fire
    Dog care and training books
    Travelogue books
    Books I'm never sure what genre they are but they have like stories of areas etc fictional but stories of say an area of London during WW2
    I've read a couple of interesting autobiographies Slash's was the most interesting. But most just bore me
    Vampire books Twilight, the one's with Lestat and the true blood books
    Any historical books especially on ancient Greece or Italy

    My guilty pleasure book are Mills and Boons books :blush2:. I normally hate romance books but these for some reason I like reading
