I've just finished 'A Respectable Trade' by Philippa Gregory which was ok but I wouldn't recommend anyone to rush out and buy it. I'm trying to decide whether to read 'Atonement' or 'Enduring Love' again - I loved them both when I read them the first time and I need to re-familiarise myself with them for my A level class (likewise 'The Colour Purple' but I don't want the trauma just yet!). I love Marian Keyes too - I've got all of hers, the new one is the next on my list!! My favourite is 'Sushi for Beginners'!

I'm really funny when it comes to watching the films of books I've read (I have to read the book first!!!) - I tried to watch 'Twilight', hated it, read the books, loved them and quite like the films now (I think because I fill in the gaps!) I get really cross when they change things or they aren't as I imagined. I particularly hate when they change the endings...GRRR! Evil or Very Mad Some films I know I can't watch because I cried so much at the books - 'Marley and Me' and 'My Sister's Keeper' being two prime examples! x

Just thought I'd share. I bought a book the other day as I had and hour train journey to take... by 9 pm that evening I'd finished it! real page turner!

It's called 'Room' by Emma Donoghue. Sad and haunting in some ways yet inspiring....and so well written! Id really, really recommend it

I am reading a Minette Walters book at the minute 'The Shape of Snakes'. I love her books. Someone in our office has read this one and I want to ask her how it ends, but i don't want to spoil it, but i want to know who did it, but i don't!

Aaarggh Sorry about that. It shouldn't take me long to finish it though.

Mummy2B - I was thinking of donating some books to our library too as I have loads at home. x
