Kate Morton's new one, The Secret Keeper.

Brilliant!

I only have about 10 pages left, I am saving them because I know I will be a little sad when I finish it.

What will I do then?  Kate Morton is a genius.

Just finished Peyton Place which I happened to come across at the library.

it was really good.  Can see why American libraries were banning it in the 50s though.  Much too racy for them!

Half way through Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend and it's just amazing so far. It's almost like I don't want to keep reading because then it will end. Weird I know.

Not weird at all. I have done this also.

The Nearly Happy Family by Catherine McKinnon. Great Australian book with flawed, relatable character.

Interrobang-I felt that way about Memoirs of an Invisible Friend. I loved that book. When I was reading it I knew it was going to end up being an all time favourite.

I so often feel that way!

I am almost finished reading Tara Moss' novel Assassin, the last in a series of 6. I did a post on it on my blog and nearly died when I noticed she had followed me on twitter... and then nearly died again when I saw she had linked to my post on her facebook page! I've loved all her books, especially for the fact she was so young when she began writing - such an inspiration.

Well I did finish it, and it was lovely. I think it will be one that stays with me for a while.

Now reading Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, by Helen Simonson.

I am re-reading my most favourite book in the world, since I recently heard a prequel is in the making.

Here's a link, since the name of the book unfortunately now conjures up some pretty frightening imagery sad.gif

Just started the The Street Sweeper by Elliott Perlman. I'm in for an emotional read, I reckon.

Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout. About halfway through and I love it.

This week I embarrassingly also read The Great Gatsby and The Old Man and the Sea for the first time ever.

I have been re-reading some Diane Blacklock favourites, and also recently discovered Rachel Alliott.

Easy, light-hearted reads.

Oh is it good?  I spotted it in the bookstore and thought it looked interesting.

I'm currently reading The 9th Circle by Alex Bell. So far it is fantastic.

Oh I am dying to read that, but I just can't buy it until it's in the size that matches the first book in the series  rolleyes.gif

Last night I read Never Let me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, and it was brilliant. Haven't seen the film yet. Might now read The Remains of the Day by the same author.

Men From The Boys by Tony Parsons

mummyummy-I read at night before I go to sleep. Usually for at least an hour and sometimes longer (but I pay the next day). I read quickly too which is good and if I am not enjoying a book I usually stop reading it and move onto another one. That was a hard thing for me to learn to do!

I started the above book this afternoon with the kids home and I have only managed to read 10 pages in the past 2 hours laughing2.gif

I've just been reading lots of trash lately.  blush.gif  I think it's the time of the year - too busy to really get my teeth stuck into something really good.
