My goal is six and I've already read 4! Although one of those was a non fiction.

#1 The Third Wife by Lisa Jewell - good start to get me back into reading.
#2 The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simison - finally finished it, should not have read 3 books with similar ideas in a row, that's why this took forever, but I did enjoy it in the end. Although not quite as much as the first.
#3 The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell - really enjoyed this! Not what I was expecting and found myself reading a lot which is great.
#4 The Fringe Hours by Jessica Turner - this took forever due to all the mentions of god and christianity, made it pretty annoying. But some points kept me going back to it. Glad I've finished the damn thing.

Currently reading Z for Zachariah. I know I read it as a teenager and enjoyed it, but barely remember it so counting as a new read.

Thanks to this thread I've joined Good Reads and my 'want to read' list is sitting at 33! I guess that's the next few years sorted out (well, hopefully as the kids grow I'll have more time to read!)

I loved Z for Zachariah but haven't read it since I was a teen.

#6 the price of salt by Patricia Highsmith.  The movie Carol is based on this book which was good, but i loved the subtelty! and tension of the novel

8. Choose your own Autobiography by Neil Patrick Harris... wasn't as entertaining as I expected it to be. But it wasn't bad.

9. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?: (And other concerns) by Mindy Kaling.
I really enjoyed this one. I love Mindy Kaling. The Mindy Project is fantastic. Unfortunately I can't deal with the awkwardness of The Office, otherwise I'd have watched her in that too. Hopefully the ebook loans get her newer one for me to read too!

I'm the same! I looove The Mindy Project (when is the rest of season 4 coming?! Waa!) but can't deal with The Office. My manager keeps telling me to persist with it but I just cringe the whole way through!

I'd be interested to hear what you think of Why Not Me?, I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? Perhaps my expectations were too high after enjoying the first one so much!

10. Wicked Ink by Misty Simon, it was just a short little book... really bad romance. But it was so bad it was good!

lanthe - please let me know if you have trouble copying the list over.  I was going to paste it into the first post in new thread but as a mod you would not be able to copy my post.

If you post in the new thread I can post the list in there if you like.
