Thought I'd start this otherwise we end up on loads of single book threads - and this one can just grow and grow

i'm currently reading:
Medea by Euripides
An excellent, extremely dramatic greek tragedy. I am reading it as part of an educational course, so i haven't quite disappeared up my own pretentious backside , next up is Wide Sargasso Sea - again for my studies. I've read it before and it's ok, but not exactly a fave.

THEN it's back to chick lit . In this month's She magazine there's a free book PLUS free bar of choccie - look out for that!

Loads of books and articles on editing Old English manuscript texts, particularly with reference to editions of Beowulf (for my studies).
 
For pleasure, I'm part way through Neil Gaiman's "Neverwhere". 
 
Seem to be on a bit of a Gaiman roll at the moment - recently read "American Gods" and "Anansi Boys", both of which were excellent.

I enjoyed it read Lepers Bell earlier in the year too really reading them out of sequence but if you like mysteries based in ancient Ireland you will enjoy

I'm almost finished In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. Loving that. I've also just started Evil Beyond Belief, about the Yorkshire Ripper. Recently I got halfway through The Plot Against America by Philip Roth but to be honest, not a lot is happening so I've put that to one side. I'm terrible for doing that. Did the same with Fatherland by Robert Harris and Tales Of The City by Armistead Maupin. Fatherland seems ok but I'm not doing any more than two books at a time, and with TOTC I've already watched most of the series on dvd so it seems a bit pointless now.

I got afew of Richard and Judy's best reads but found them quite slow, The interpritation of murder was ok, but only got half way, the girls was very slow, Restless, William Boyd was good, aout a spy, but I gave up then, thought they'd possibly picked them blind, but that's my opinion!

The Pact is really good, read it a while ago but certainly kept you guessing till the end, the only thing was it kept jumping from now to 20 years ago, or where they were in their lives, which was a bit confusing.

I am LOVING The Pact, its a really good read, should be finished today, can't wait to see the outcome, the other book of Jodi's I read was My Sisters Keeper, I enjoyed that one but the Pact is better imo.

Still reading that Yorkshire Ripper one. It goes into so much detail about everyone involved and I'm still only halfway through. Next puchase (on Friday) is Season Of The Witch. Thanks to Jon for bringing it to our attention, it's right up my street. And Natasha is very nice too (according to the lovely reply she left me on myspace).

*EDIT* Can I just recommend In Cold Blood to everyone? Takes a few chapters to get into but it's well worth it.

I love Sophie Kinsella's books, I've read all of the Shopaholics (apart from the brand new one) so many times and Can you keep a secret is really good too.    

Why are people embarrassed about chick lit? I'm not the most avid reader of it but I think a lot of it is still really good story telling.

"This Book Will Save Your Life" by A.M.Homes.

PROBABLY the best book I will read all year. Quirky tale about a man whose life is so regimented that he has lost track of all he values and whose life is transformed by a mysterious crippling pain which causes him to end up at the ER, and then to a chance encounter with a Doughnut maker who helps him change , and perhaps save, his life. Some laugh out loud moments in a book that COULD become a classic. It has already been compared to "Catch-22" and "Catcher in the rye".

I'm currently reading Persuasion by jane Austen (trying to broaden my intellectual horizons), and Deception point by Dan Brown. I can't seem to get into that like all of the other Dan Brown books though- he is my favourite author at the moment. I think the two best books I've ever read are The Da Vinci Code by dan Brown, and Don't Wake Me at Doyles by Maura Murphy- about an Irish woman who moved with her husband and 9 children to Birmingham, and basically her life story. It's very interesting and also kind of apt for me, being of Irish descent and coming from Birmingham. I don't think anyone else will have read that though as it's not that well known I don't think. I've also read recently A Child Called it by dave Pelzer and The Little Prisoner by Jane Elliot- both about children who were abused by their parents.

I finished the 6th Target, by James Patterson, it was fab, as normal.

Finished At Risk a couple of days ago.  Not one of Cornwell's best (long way down the list, actually) - more like an extended short story than a novel and nowhere near the number of twists that I'd normally expect. On the contrary, the twists were predictable in the extreme.  Roll%20eyes
 
Now re-reading Neil Gaiman's book of short stories "Smoke & Mirrors".  Can't remember much as I originally read them several years ago so it's like reading them for the first time again, which is great.  Big%20smile

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.

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.

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

I've just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Poor Harry, all those deaths he's seen over the years, losing his parents and living with the relations from hell too ..... and not a counsellor or social services in sight.

I recently read My Best Friend's girl and loved it, so now I'm on Marshmallows for breakfast. It's good so far, can't wait to find out what the twist is. This is a bit fluffy for me as I'm usually into Martina Cole and Mandasue Heller, but I am enjoying it!

I've read a couple of her books, One Child and Tiger's Child, about the little girl who came to her class and then they met up again years later. As a rule I don't go near these kinds of books but the first one had me crying at the end (quietly to myself, mind).

I've also read One Child and Beautiful Child, and I agree that they are very moving and I would recommend them both. It's incredible to read about how the child progresses in both books and they are real tearjerkers.
 
I'm currently reading (for about the third time) Polly's Angel by Katie Flynn- a wartime book following the life of a young girl, set mainly in Liverpool-has anyone read any of her books?

started nineteen minutes by Jodi Picoult, wow looks like another cracking read.

Nineteen Minutes is really good. We were in France last week and they had some of Jodi Picoult's books (in English) that I haven't been able to get yet over here. They were too expensive to buy though.

Am currently reading the Richard and Judy bookclub "Relentless" ..... definitely edge-of-the-seat reading.
