            Needless to say the last two aren't too interesting. I'm required to read them for uni. Hooray.

                • Half Of A Yellow Sun, by Chiamamanda N Odieche.

                  This book is absolutely gripping.I could NOT put it down at all. I read its nea4 500 pages in three days, and consumed it with a vigour.

                  It covers a factual genocide and fight for freedom, of the Igbo and the Hasuah of Nigera. Covers the rise and fall of Biafra. Being covered through the lives of a british writer, a wealthy Nigerian family and a poor servant of the family.

                  It is moving, it is deeply upsetting, it's fantasitc!

                  Have just finished Wendy Williams autobiography.

                  Wendy's Got The Heat


                  An easy read, but a very interesting one! Covers her rape, cocaine addiction, rise and fall in Radio and the Downlo' Lesbian/Gay artists in the Industry and the ugly face of it. Very controversial and sorid! A fun read.

                  Read that in two days, straight after finishing the previous

                  So am now starting 'Interesting Times' by Terry Pratchett. Am a huge fan of Discworld, and all his books. So looking foward to re-reading this after many years.

                    This, the guy's brilliant. A Long Way Down is one of the best books you'll ever read. If you've got a slightly sick sense of humour like wot I has.

                    Also, whoever posted that Dave Gorman book on the last page: I hate you. That book is a bitch to pack, really awkward size.

                    Person who posted On Chesil Beach: I like you, that's a nice easy one to pack.

                    Guess who had a job in a book distribution warehouse over the summer... :x So yeah, I'm not reading anything at the moment. Books can go fcuk themselves until I've recovered from the sheer boredom of that poxy job. Or at least until I'm back at uni.
                    This post is highly unlikely to be serious. Please treat it accordingly. Unless it's music-related, in which case I'm damn well right.

                          OMG! I'm reading the exact same book!

                          I bought it right after I saw "Schindlers List" the other week. It's brilliant, isn't it?

                              • The book is so real! It's about a girl who's cousin and close friend, Emma gets HIV/Aids through unprotected sex! Emma make Laura (the girl) promise that she will not tell anybody. She also asks Laura to come and teach drums at the support centre for people with HIV/Aids. When the school bully finds out about Laura's visits to the support centre, a viscious rumor is spread that Laura has HIV!
                                Also Laura's boyfriend tells Laura that they don't need comments. All this happenning as Emma's health is getting worse!

                                This story really is so emotional! I cried on numerous occasions! I have had the experience of someone close to me having HIV/Aids but I think anyone can read this book and understand it!
                                I definately recommend it!

                                        At best that's paranoid, at worst, slanderous.

                                              • ^^^ I've added that book to my reading list too, although I'm not sure how long it'll be before I actually get around to reading it.

                                                I've got so many books on my "must read" list and I do try to read as much as possible (just to stop my mind from rotting ) but I find it really hard to actually finish a book. I always read up to about halfway and then stop - and by the time I force myself to get back into it I always feel that I should start from the beginning again because it's been so long since I've picked up the book.

                                                Hence it's not uncommon for me to take years to finish a long book.

                                                • I don't understand why if you don't believe in God you have to read a book on it, just get on with your life.

                                                  I'm reading:



                                                  It's awesome. Joanna is a wise, slightly mad person and I love that. I also like how the book is written, each chapter is based in a room in her house, she invites the reader inside then looks at objects and talks abut what they remind her of. So it doesn't start at her early life and end at present day. It's random & I like her attitude to life.
