having been in a charity shop the other day i took in five books that i have read and re read four or five times i looked at what they on offer to read i picked up a couple of books i like reading about people and how they got to where they are to day having said that i try not to read celeb books to much any way i digress

i picked up a very thick paperback and flicked through a few pages and though i will give this a go when i got home and started to read i realised its a book by someone called mick foley about his life as a wrester ...i have never watched any wresting in my life and i am only part way though the book but i am finding it intresting and  well worth the money i would have paid if i had brought it new

I am currently reading Kathleen Turner's biography. Good insight into her reasons for doing certain acting roles.

I have recently started reading this, thoroughly enjoyed the first one and so far some laugh out loud moments.. I do try not to read it in public places as I tend to draw attention to myself!

I'm three quarters of the way through 'The Lady In The Tower' by Alison Weir, about the fall of Anne Boleyn (I really need to read about something other than the Tudors soon). Apparently it's the first book dedicated solely to that few weeks when she was arrested, tried, condemned and executed. The only hard part is when Weir gets technical about beheadings and talks about how long the brain remains conscious (average 13 seconds!) after the head is cut off. She's even used some modern-day examples that made for uncomfortable reading. Other than that I love it!

I've recently read Caron Keatings biography written by her mum after she died.  I found it interesting and sad, but she didn't come across very well.

I'm finally onto something non-Tudor: Horns by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son apparently). The premise is: the girlfriend of a guy called Ignatious is raped and murdered, a year later the perpetrator still hasn't been caught and Ignatious is still suspect no. 1. He wakes up one morning with a set of horns protruding from his forehead, and everyone he meets after that tell him their deepest, darkest secrets and desires; he's also able to suggest to them what they should do. If he touches them or vice versa, he seems to telepathically know all about them.

From the synopsis on the back, he apparently tries to use this new-found power to find out who killed his girlfriend but gets caught up in seeking revenge. There are some proper laugh-out-loud moments and I'm only three chapters in, I hope he keeps it up. I've read his other novel, Heart-shaped Box, and loved that from start to finish as well (the guy has great taste in music as well as a brilliantly dark sense of humour). The artwork on both books is also gorgeous.

(I did buy a book about Lady Jane Grey and her sisters at the same time but I'm not going to read that until I've finished Horns, to give myself a break).

I'm reading 'Safe Harbour by Danielle Steel' .. it's a powerfully emotional book, and like all her books, are something she knows something about or has personally went through herself. I have read it before but ..wow, an amazing book!!

I'm reading High Five by Janet Evanovich - its the 5th one in the Stephanie Plum series.

There is a film of the first one (One for the Money) coming out later this year.
