Nealry finishing it.

Thankfully, it's not as tragic as Jane Eyre, it's actually quite funny at times.

Believe it or not, I am just beginning to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I missed it during my teenage years. Heck, I didn't even watch ANY of the movies that were adapted from it. LOL.

We were liars - E. Lockhart

It was pretty good! Not too crazy about the writing style, but the plot was interesting. Hated Gat and the main character, loved Johnny and Mirren :D

No shame in that, Billy. I haven't read it, but the world C. S. Lewis created was magical.

Currently re-reading this, '80s pop-culture references a-plenty. I hope Spielberg's movie adaptation does it justice.

edit: I was correct.

I finished reading this last month. It was a nice behind-the-scenes look at one of athletics' greatest female sprinters, but I thought more could have been written about a career that lasted some 12+ years. There was a single, deeply personal revelation, but, for the most part, I could have written this same book.

Image

I'm 73% complete with this one. I'd always been meaning to read it, and I'm glad I stopped procrastinating. It is so powerful!

it's disgusting, but I found the vivid descriptions of everything hilarious :lol: maybe because I was reading a version in Serbian which made it even funnier :lol:

I'm getting that with Justine too, I find that hilarious at times :lol:
But I understand the disgust, he must be a polarizing author.

It wasn't the disgusting parts that made me stop reading, but it was getting sooooo repetitive.
