Now Reading

Now Reading: Daniel Tammet – Born on a Blue Day

This book is the first of four books that my cousin Hannah lent me when she found out about my challenge to read 100 books in a year. I love reading books that other people suggest – they are usually… Continue Reading →

Lent Reading: Rick Warren – The Purpose Driven Life & John Piper – The Passion of Jesus Christ

For lent this year (as well as giving up chocolate again), I’ve decided to re-read two books that I’ve read and loved in the past. The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. This book is handily split into 40 sections/days… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Rob Lacey – The Liberator

I’ve read this book a few times in the past (as you can probably tell from the tatty edges of the cover), and it’s one of my favourites. I’ve not read it for a while, and I found myself really… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Maureen Lee – Amy’s Diary

This book is part of the Galaxy Quick Reads that has been released in most supermarkets. There’s quite a large collection of books available, although my local Morrisons only seems to have about 6. I bought 2 of them which… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Jim Bouton & Eliot Asinof – Strike Zone

I had a bit of a book-buying-spree last week (someone really needs to stop me!) and bought quite a few baseball books. I’ve read a few in the past (like Josh Hamilton and Dirk Hayhurst) and loved them, so I… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Jessica Thompson – This is a Love Story

 This is a Love Story, but not every story is the same. At first glance, it’s intriguing, although I have to admit that I’m a sucker for judging a book by it’s cover, and that’s pretty much why I bought this… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Alastair Reynolds – Century Rain

This book is a sci-fi book (borrowed from Mike), which will be another change for me, I’ve not read much sci-fi before. It looks quite interesting though, I always used to be quite interested in sci-fi tv programs, but somehow… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Michael Morpurgo – War Horse

This book is one that I stole borrowed from the bookshelf in my brother’s room. I recently went to see the film at the cinema and I really loved it, one of the best films I’ve seen in a while…. Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Gabriel García Márquez – One Hundred Years of Solitude

Now onto the third of the books that Mike leant me. I have high hopes for this one, it looks really interesting, and I’ve heard good things about it. There’s a quote on the front from Salman Rushdie which says:… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: John Fowles – The Collector

I’m now starting the second of my borrowed books (thanks Mike!). It sounds a bit weirder than the last one, the description on the back of the book says: … a nutty clerk captures and holds the art student he… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Sam Savage – Firmin (Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife)

Now that I’ve finished the Lily Bard series that my parents got me for Christmas, it’s time to change it up a little bit. Mike has lent me a few books to read, so that has me sorted for the… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Counselor

So here we are on the last book in the series, it seems like it’s come far too soon! I hate it when I read a series that ends without tying up all the loose ends, like Harris’ Harper Connelly… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Trollop

Onto book 4 out of 5 in the Lily Bard series, which I have to say, I’m really enjoying! Having already read 3 books out of the series, it feels like I’m getting to know everyone within the town of Shakespeare,… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Christmas

I’m now onto book 3 of 5 of the Lily Bard series that my parents bought me for Christmas. I’m loving this series so far, so I’m guessing that this one is going to be just as good. The only… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Champion

This is book 2 of the Lily Bard series by Charlaine Harris. The last one was awesome, and left it at a bit of a cliff-hanger in Lily’s life, so I’m excited to see where that goes in this book…. Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Landlord

Book number 2 on my 100 book reading challenge is Shakespeare’s Landlord by Charlaine Harris. I’ve read two sets of books by Charlaine Harris – the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series, and the Harper Connelly series. I absolutely loved both… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Jonathan Franzen – The Corrections

This is another of the books that I got for Christmas – part of a set of two by Jonathan Franzen. The descriptions of them on The Book People looked really good, so I’m really glad my brother bought them… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Emma Donoghue – Room

The Auschwitz Violin was a really good book, too short for my liking though – one of those books that you just don’t want to end. The story is about a man who has been taken to Auschwitz and is… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Maria Àngels Anglada – The Auschwitz Violin

I got a few books for Christmas this year: The Auschwitz Violin by Maria Àngels Anglada Room by Emma Donaghue Freedom by Jonathan Franzen The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen The Lily Bard series by Charlaine Harris It was a tough choice… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Alexandra Potter – Be Careful What You Wish For

The last book I read was typical chick lit – totally predictable with a little twist in the middle, but great all the same – just what I would expect from Belinda Jones. I’ve read a lot of books recently… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Belinda Jones – The Paradise Room

I really loved the last book I read (Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck), I can’t believe that I’ve never read it until now! I loved the relationship between George and Lennie, so the ending of the book really… Continue Reading →
