Little Nemo - don't worry about Mr Y, Crashie read it and enjoyed it, I think it was just me!
Bit short on books again now, just finished Birdsong which I thought was okay but as Mr W said, didn't have a great impact on me.
In the middle of What To Do When Someone Dies by Nicci French....not bad at all....read half the book in one day...have been busy since so haven't got me head ina book for a few days.
Do you ever wonder what you'd do without a good book to read....I go from one to the next and one of my favourite things is to find a new author who has a load of books out that you can just go through!!
Just read 'The Boy with the Striped Pyjamas'. Yes, it is a kids book but I enjoyed it, maybe a little subtle for kids.... or maybe they're brighter than I used to be but don't know if many of them will get the "Out-With" place!
Just started reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. Will let you know what it's like.
i didn't think the boy in the striped pyjamas was a kids book and really don't understand why it has been marketed as such
like squish said - i think kids would need all the bits expalining - like where the servant is really a doctor etc
i am reading "three men in a boat " it's hilarious
GFB - I've read all of them - brilliant and gruesome.
Just finished reading Black, White & Gold - Kelly Holmes book - really enjoyed it.
Bedside table is currently littered with half a dozen marathon books, to which I am referring randomly!
Lurks, I agree with Birdsong, the beginning was dull and I don't think he needed to go on for so long on that particular part of it, but the life in the trenches was very well portrayed. War books give me nightmares, but I do like to read them, it brings me back down to earth and makes me appreciate what we've got.
Never Let Me Go was quite good.
I've just read a Harlan Coben, lent to me by Debbo called 'Hold Tight' which was excellent. To be recommended. In fact, I've enjoyed most of his I've read.
Finished The Handmaid's Tale last night. Never read it before and it was on 3 for 2 at Waterstones.
I read last thing at night, so some of the switching back and forth between times confused me, and the comment about naming the Aunts after home ec. products just passed me by totally! I'd read it again and it'll probably make much more sense then!
Passage to Juneau by Jonathan Raban.
Not quite fnished yet but a great laid-back travelogue.
Reading 'We need to talk about Kevin' - so far it's as dull as dishwater - which is strange as it was recommended to me by someone who is usually spot on with their recommendations...
I'll give it another 30 pages before it gets chucked in the "will read one day" sea chest.
"We need to talk about kevin" has a huge twist at the end my wife read it recently and loved it.
Just read "Booty Nomad" by Scott Mebus
Kinda of a love story for men, V funny!
Whatcha all reading now?
I've been reading a few val McDermid's books...they seem to run on a theme....serial killer, a bunch of lesbians, guts and gore. LOL
I'm going on my holidays in a week so am not reading the books i have in the house at the minute. I've got the new Lee Child, a Nicci French novel and the latest V McD.
Any recommendations to tide me over till I go away?
Have you tried Kate Atkinson's crime books? Just read When Will There Be Good News? and loved it.
Currently reading a Mark Billingham book which is quite good, plus rereading an old Georgette Heyer one
