  1. I read this earlier in the month and thought it was so fascinating. It's a bit depressing as well when you realise the destruction humans have caused to other animals. I'm sure this is the Columbine book I read last year, but I can't find it on Amazon (at least the Kindle version) anymore. Anyway, from what I remember it was a very detailed read, so I hope you enjoy it ('enjoy' somehow seems to be the wrong word!). Oh no, that's a shame. That was going to be one of my next reads, once I get the library book out of the way. I might postpone it then, but then again I may enjoy it. I'm now reading The Circle by Dave Eggers. It's a bit tedious, but I'm still able to carry on reading it. I should finish it tonight.
  2. That's why I don't want to go to a class. My yoga mat arrived the other day, and the book arrived this morning, so now I'm committed. I will let you know how I get on....
  3. I finished Last Night In Montreal by Emily St John Mandel. It was good but I felt like something was missing. Now I'm reading The Jigsaw Man by Paul Britton which is utterly fascinating.
  4. I finished The Sixth Extinction, which was a fascinating read, albeit very depressing. Now I've moved on to Last Night In Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel. I loved her Station Eleven so hopefully I will enjoy this one.
  5. I just bought The Circle the other day. It was only £0.99 so if I don't like it, no great loss.
  6. ....Soon to be followed by Rum and Raisin ice-cream.
  7. Roast chicken dinner.
  8. Just wondering if anyone has tried yoga? I'm thinking of giving it a go (from a book, rather than going to a class) as it is supposed to help with stress/anxiety as well as physical health. I've been watching some You Tube videos....they make it look so easy, but I'm not very limber!!
  9. Oh dear, 0/5 for On The Road? I can't comment as I haven't read it but I did buy it last week, so I hope I enjoy it more than you did! It's one of those books that is considered a modern classic, and everyone raves about it.....I'll have to get to it sooner rather than later I think!
  10. I loved The Secret History. I also have Steppenwolf on my bookshelf (I've just found it on my shelf and it's right next to The Secret History!), but it's one of those I haven't been motivated to pick up.
  11. You've remembered correctly. I have read The Pillars of the Earth a couple of times, but the paper copy (second hand when I bought it) I had fell apart and had to be binned. The Kindle version I bought was only £0.99 which is a bargain for such a big book, and I know I will want to read it again in the near future. I don't think I have read this one by Diane Chamberlain. I hope you enjoy it. I finished End of Watch by Stephen King....overall it was disappointing. Now I'm reading The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert.
  12. I finished The End of Mr Y which was so strange, but so entertaining! Now I'm about halfway through End of Watch by Stephen King. I also bought a load of books from the Amazon Kindle Summer Sale. I got: The Bone Clocks - David Mitchell The Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follett American Psycho - Bret Easton Ellis Stephen King Goes to the Movies (collection) - Stephen King The Second Coming - John Niven The Passage - Justin Cronin No idea when I am going to read these books; my TBR pile is just ridiculous!
  13. East of Eden (John Steinbeck) and On The Road (Jack Kerouac) are £0.99 on today's Kindle Daily Deal.
  14. I haven't seen that movie in ages...I can't even remember Jennifer Aniston in it though.
  15. Yes, that's the one. It's good so far, but I'm only in the very early stages, I hope to get more reading done this weekend. July already - where does the time go?!
