    'The Gunslinger' by Stephen KIng
  • Gender
  1. I was so disappointed by the ending, I wanted to throw the book off my balcony!
  2. Just finished this and I got used to the separate character chapters in the end, I thought it was an interesting way to tell the story. However, the ending left me feeling extremely cheated.
  3. I've just finished 'My Sister's Keeper' by Jodi Picoult. In general, I think this is an interesting read, but I felt extremely cheated by the ending. Once my Kindle has charged, I'm going to start reading 'The Gunslinger' by Stephen King, the first in his 'Dark Tower' series.
  4. I never seem to read more than the same number of books read every year, so the challenge is never met. I should push myself a bit, but not to the point that I don't enjoy reading anything.
  5. I'm still reading this, I have been too busy to read over the last few days. I'm enjoying it though. The multiple character chapters are a little confusing at times though.
  6. I agree, gender shouldn't matter. Jodie Whittaker has proven herself to be a great actress in things like 'Broadchurch', so I think she should be given a chance. As someone was saying earlier in the thread, it takes guts to make the decision to take on the role being the first female Doctor, because of potential negative reaction she might get by some fans but I think going against the tradition of having a male Doctor, is a good thing. It'll definitely be interesting viewing. I do wonder now if Bill is going to come back. Could a female Doctor mean the introduction of a male companion? In general don't care about the gender of the companion either, but I really hope the writers bring back Bill. She's the best companion the programme has had, since Rose Tyler in my opinion.
  7. Yesterday I finished 'Billy and Me' by Giovanna Fletcher and I have to say, it wasn't as predictable as I had first though. I don't usually read this type of book, but I enjoyed it. I would like to read more of Giovanna Fletcher's books in the future. Now, I'm about 55 pages into 'My Sister's Keeper' by Jodi Picoult. So far, it's good.

  9. So far I'm whizzing through it. It's a fun read, bit predictable though.

  11. I finished 'The Amber Spyglass' last night and although I found this a disappointing end to the trilogy, it did redeem itself at the end a little. Now I'm just about to start 'Billy and Me' by Giovanna Fletcher. I'm not a fan of chick lit, but I have been watching Giovanna's vlogs on You Tube for a while and saw 'Billy and Me' in my local charity shop and decided to see what she is like as an author.

  13. How are you getting on with your Goodreads goal? I cancelled min,e as I just felt too much pressure to complete it and I stopped enjoying reading.
