Am I ok to kick this thread off with some book porn wizzy dearest? 

 

Spoiler

I've decided I don't so much want a house as I do a library. Not that I'll ever be able to afford either =(

 

I haven't finished a book in too long ><. The last book I finished was Gabriel's Angel, which was an ok read but nothing too fascinating. Decided I should try and work on my grammar so am reading a grammar book. Not as boring as it sounds. Also picked up 'From Hell' by Alan Moore, which is an interesting take on Jack the Ripper.

I see the Anita Blake series and Sophie Kinsella, my guilty pleasures  :ahmagah:

 

A book that blew my mind:

How I Live Now of Meg Rosoff

 

I read it when it came out and I was just a teenager, the story is about a girl who goes to England to live and then a war begins. 

The book is weird, the girls is anorexic, and it turns into a dystopia. But it is the kind of weird I like. 

But be warned, there is incest in it. It didn't disturbed me but if you can't stad incest, this book is not for you.

You can read on your computer, but it is not comfortable at all.

If you are not into chick-lit and do not like happy endings or very light-hearted books, run away. Sophie Kinsella is very very very cheesy.

On good reads, a lot of people took it way too seriously imo.

I think I tried reading the Twilight series on the computer.
It is definitely not comfortable.

Don't worry I love Chick-lits <3
I liked Something Blue by Emily Giffin, annoying through out but had a super happy ending.
It's a sequel or something to Something Borrowed, which also has a movie starring Kate Hudson.

I think I tried reading the Twilight series on the computer.
It is definitely not comfortable.

Don't worry I love Chick-lits <3
I liked Something Blue by Emily Giffin, annoying through out but had a super happy ending.
It's a sequel or something to Something Borrowed, which also has a movie starring Kate Hudson.

The Twilight series is just, well, tragic.

 

Yeah me too! I agree, it was a bit slow, and sometimes the main character annoyed me, but the ending saved everything.

Since I've been so into sci-fi lately, I've been looking for a good sci-fi book to read. I think I've found a few, so I'll order them and see if they're any good. Or maybe I'll try and see if I can get them as e-books (that would honestly be easier xD; ).
