    I like Nick Hornby books :yes:

    The wheel of time series by Robert Jordan...and more recently Brandon Sanderson because Mr Jordan passed away...brilliant books...and I'm waiting for the next two to come out. Another book whihc I'm reading at the moment is Anathem by Neal Stephenson, but it requires a little concentration if you don't like physics or maths.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    This is a good idea! I haven't read anything new since... September!
    Thanks school taking up my time!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    im still up for joining in but if someone could organise it then :) brilliant.. cheers.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Someone could make a poll?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Hmmm I'm gonna either start The Ghost (Robert Harris) or The Lovely Bones, next.

    We Need to Talk About Kevin is a masterpiece imho and awesome choice for a book group. The Almost Moon on the other hand :yuck: Not a big fan of Alice Sebold, although Lovely Bones was OK. Be interested to hear your perspectives on both. :)

    Do Graphic novels count? If yes then Tough Love...It is AMAZING
    And, silent graphic novel: The Arrival. It's great.
    oh, and proper book, I'm currently reading Rounding the mark... tis good so far

    I've read the book thief and nearly finished a thousand splendid suns - both amazing!!

    i guess if people suggest books for the next couple of days on here, then we can make a poll and pick one?!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    you shoul all pick books related to my studies, then we can read and discuss. Would be useful for me anyway. No? Oh, suit yourselves.

    *huffs off*
