I've just finished The Devil Wears Prada which was predictable enough but still enjoyable. Before that it was The Woman In Black, a lovely creepy ghost story. It's not very long so I whizzed right through it. Has anyone seen the stage version of this? I wanted to go last year but it was a bit short notice so couldn't. I hear it's quite scary.

I'm onto Loop now, which is the third part of the Ring trilogy.

Nope haven't seen the stage version but know people who have and they said its great and very scary.

Currently reading Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow, its not out in the shops yet but its very different thats for sure!
Its a werewolf story, set in modern day and very different from your normal werewolf type of thing...but most importantly the whole novel is written in prose! Would recommend for when it gets in the shops.

I've just read the Tenth Circle- it's the first book of hers that I've read. I thought it was quite good  but the bits in/about Alaska got a bit boring IMO and I didn't think the end did the rest of the book justice- I knew who killed him by 2/3 of the way through so I thought they gave tou too many clues. I thought it was a good plot and storyline though and an enjoyable read overall.

Don't let this put you off Jodi Picoult's books. The Tenth Circle was my least favourite and I found it quite boring in parts - her other books are much better.

Jodi Picoult has another "new" book out (just found out it was published in January) called "Second Glance" .... I've reserved it at the library:

When a plot of land is being developed in Vermont against the will of a local Native American tribe, strange things begin to happen - and Ross Wakeman, a paranormal investigator, is asked to get involved. He's a desperate drifter who's taken up ghost hunting in an effort to cross paths again with his fiancee, who died in a car crash eight years ago, but he has yet to experience anything even remotely paranormal. Then Ross meets Lia...As a seventy-year-old murder case is reopened, a shocking secret about a crime of passion long past is revealed.

No! Most of her books start off with some sort of crime and then about the last third is devoted to the court case. They're usually page turning and quite often there's a twist at the end.

I'v just read the tenth circle, it was better than I thought it would be.  The next 2 books for me to read are honey moon by amy jenkins and lonely hearts by john harvey.  Don't have a clue what they are about, start to read them some time this week.

I'm reading Lord of the Flies at the moment. I find it incredibly interesting and engaging and can see aspects of boys I know in the characters as well as noting the emphasis on civilisations and control

Couldn't get into Jodi Picoult's "Second Glance", which was written several years ago.
