omg i finished this last night and have now passed it to my mother. its was fantastic i cant recommend it highly enough.

it has helped me understand the children i work with so much better. just the simple things like a colour or a sound could cause a meltdown. and how overwhelmed by noise and other sensory demands these children/adults are. wow xx

Has anyone read "Breaking Night" by Liz Murray?

I wouldn't usually read a book like that - a my story of survival girlie type book but Liz was interviewed on the radio at the start of this year before her book was released over here and she was great, a wonderful story teller and with just such a fantastic energy. The interview was on at about 3am so I had to stay awake for the rest of the night so I could remember what the name of the book was to write it down in the morning!

Not got very far into it (I have been distracted by another book) but it's an interesting story.

i go through stages of reading. Sometimes i read alot and then very little or not at all. I do like to have a book on the go on Holiday so shall be looking to take one. The place where we stay on holiday (the apartment) has a book shelf and lots of books there for people to read. You can also leave a book there for someone else if you want too to read. Great idea.

I am reading Jill Mansell - Rumour Has It. I don't normally read girly books or chick-lit, but I am really quite enjoying it Embarassed . I normally read historical fiction, crime or biographies.

Thought is was about time this discussion was bumped up.
When it's cold outside, there is nothing better than snuggling down with a good book. Very Happy

I am currently reading "Jamrach's Menagerie" by Carol Birch, and I am enjoying it so far.

What's everyone else reading at the mo?

And is anyone else here on "Good Reads"? I am and I am doing the 2012 reading challenge. I have set a target of 30 books for this year.

I've read 4 books in january, none were outstanding TBH.

Currently reading another Jill Mansell - Take a Chance on me.
Chick-lit is not really my thing but I find her books are so easy to read and a bit of escapism, that I am gradually working my way through them all.

I'm taking a couple of books back to the library today, one about "modern retro" and one about decorating with white. Other than that I've been reading about quilting and that's about it. I've ordered a book about Grayson Perry so hopefully I'll get that soon and get stuck into that.

My Dh read that and the following book recently, he really enjoyed them. It is on my "to-read" pile, but it has been there for some time as it doesn't grab me tbh.


I'm currently reading "Screwed" by Ronnie Thompson, which is a memoir of a Prison Officer. Its really quite an interesting book, but contains lots of bad language. Shocked

I am currently reading... something of which I can't remember the title, but it's very good lol. I've just finished "why do men have nipples?" which was very interesting and incredibly entertaining.

Sounds interesting Flibsey Very Happy

I do like to read but once I start a book I cannot put it down until it's finished. Even if that meant staying up till 4 a.m or not making any tea or even the house being on fire Shocked

So I leave books to holidays and read magazines such as Take a Break, Chat etc for a quick-fix read!

I picked up a few books at the library this week, I'm just about to start "Dispatches From The Sofa" by Frank Skinner. Just saw it on the shelf so picked it up, I think he's pretty funny. I think it's a collection of articles he's written so it should be a quick and easy read.

Hi all, I am new to the forum but this post is right up my street as I have always been an avid reader. I enjoyed the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but the second and third in the series were good but didn't hook me the same. I preferred the Jo Nesbo (Harry Hole) series of books better and a new one in the series is due out soon. I love serial killer "who dunnits" and my favourite authors are Tess Gerritsen, Karin Slaughter, Karen Rose, Jodi Picoult (not murder but more of life dilemmas but gripping books). I am trying to get my 10 year old son into reading more as I know it will help him with his school work. It was costing me quite a bit in books so now I tend to buy paperbacks used off Amazon, Mandy

Ooohh just got 8 Tess Gerritsen from the book people for a fiver. They are all fairly early stand alone ones but they should keep me going for a while. Also got a load of vampire/demon type fantasy books out of the library - complete tripe but a rollicking good read to relax with and with 2 small ones and 2 OU courses I can't deal with serious reading at the moment!

Re Tess Gerritsen, a couple of the best books I have ever read are hers - The Surgeon (book 1) and The Apprentice (book 2), if you have those in your bunch of books you will be delighted.

No it's then less well known ones but I have and have read both of those and they are excellent. I also really enjoyed Body Double.

Just looked up the 19th wife on Amazon thanks for the tip and I agree it looks a good read. I usually read the Richard & Judy book selections, apparently Before I go to sleep by S J Watson is supposed to be v good has anyone read it?
