From your post I thought you were implying it's a bit dull. Did I misinterpret?

I've started on a selection of short stories by Connie Willis. I've not read anything by her before but a few people on book club group were raving about her. She's good. Really brilliant at building atmosphere.

I read the Doomsday book by Connie Willis. Very derpressing but good.

Then Woman on the edge of time by Marge Piercy. Not what I thought it was going to be like but really enjoyed it.

The Restraint of Beasts by Magnus Mills. Another one of those books where the less you know before going in the better.


What i will say that it is incredibly easy to read.

I lost the book I was reading on the train. It was by Tiffany Haddish... her autobiography. It was good. Am sad that it's gone.

I'm gonna read John Irving's "Widow for One Year" now.




I heard it was good.

He's one of my favourite authors - with books like "A Prayer for Owen Meany" "Cider House Rules" "Life According to Garp" <- these are all very very good, and would highly recommend.


So, at least I'll have this book, while I mourn the loss of my other book. Am thinking that maybe I'll contact lost & found services.

I was in Waterstones yesterday and I spied my favourite bookseller. I collered him and I said ''here good chap, recommend me something interesting and fun'' so he wanderd over to the sci-fi fantasy section (yes I'm in there a lot and he knows what I like), and he suggested The Lies of Locke Lamora which I'm assured is just like the TV series Hussle but with a fantasy twist. I'm liking it so far. Really good writing.

It was a fight to unwrap. I thought it was fitting given the subject of the book.

In a fit of madness, I joined a book club.

Next meeting is in a couple of weeks.

I have been randomly selected to be the one who chooses the next book.

What book should I inflict on them?

A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaleid Hosseini He does Kite Runner which is also very good


All The Light We Cannot See, Anothony Doerr


John Irving - A Cider House Rules or The World According to Garp or A Prayer for Owen Meany (the last 2 are pretty humourous)



ps - there really are too many smilies! I was looking for a simple non invasive thumbs up, and this is all there is

A book you want to read. Something from your to-read pile. You'll get other people's shitty choices inflicted on you so this is a rare chance to read one you know you'll actually enjoy .

It would make such a great flavour for a mafia game - several clearly delineated factions, characters begging to be role-played and primed for special powers.

Read it again every couple years, because it is so much fun.
