Re: Books!

Oooo! Books!

 

The last book I read: WARP: The Hangman's Revolution - Eoin Colffer.

  • I've loved Eoin Colfer ever since I was younger and read Artmis Fowl. 

 

The book I am currently reading: Something from the Nightside - Simon R.Green.

  • A dectective x dark fantasy novel. I'm only a little way in, but I really like it so far. It's got some really spooky sounding monsters in it so far.

 

Books I want to read next: Rest of the Nightside novels,

  • There's a whole set of them apparently. I'm looking forward to reading the rest!

 

@safari93 I love Terry Prattchett! Have you read The Long Earth series that he co-wrote ?

Re: Books!

Yes, I also love to read!! Cat Very Happy

 

There are two photos of me on our family holidays when I was 11 and 12... in both of them I was sitting READING, munching on an apple! Smiley Embarassed .... And i've never looked back! Haha!

 

(At least in this thread here I don't feel so geeky now!! ...Hi-ho, hipsters! Cat Tongue )

 

Some of my favourite genres include crime / thrillers , any classics , and light-hearted / comedy.

 

 

And i ALWAYS go by the premise that "The book is infintely better than the movie!"

 

Does anyone wish to challenge me on that?  :-)

 

***(PS. except maybe for To Kill A Mockingbird would be a pretty close call - powerful performances from all - can't wait for the sequel to the book, but would hate them try to turn that into a movie in this modern era now).

Re: Books!

You are all making me want to read more!

 

I say I dont have time but tbh I could probably cut the time i spend on the net and my phone and patting dogs and read a few books! (Not that id stop patting dogs of course though pshhh)

 

Has anyone read Gone Girl? I have seen the movie and loved it.. then bought the book because I just saw it in the shop pretty cheap tbh haha..

 

My friend said she couldnt get into the book?

@hartley_ I just read Gone Girl about a month ago and it's SO GOOD. Read it before I watched the movie and it kind of ruined the movie for me because there's so much more detail that they couldn't fit in.

Re: Books!

@hartley_ i read gone girl in two days and was left just speechless. GIven your interest in psych and crim - youll really like it. The part is a bit slow moving but then it picks up. The movie and book were pretty similar im not sure which i liked more... but i think the book was better
