That's it really. What are you ready at the moment and are you enjoying it?

I'm reading Fahrenheit 451 and loving it.

We Are Here by Michael Marshall Smith. Just started it and it's up to his usual standards so I think I'll enjoy it.

Wicked by Jilly Cooper blush

Not exactly high art but it's entertaining and on my Samsung so unless anyone looks directly at the screen no one on the tube knows my literary shame.

Oh dear reading not ready. blush

In One Person- John Irving

'Gone girl' on Kindle, easy read supermarket thriller

'Harden Up' Felix Economakers about resilience, quite interesting.

Just read 'Big Brother' Lionel Shriver excellent-- themes are obesity and success/meaning of life. Totally recommend esp for anyone with eating issues.

Also 'The Rosie Project' was fun, Sheldonesque prof trying to find the ideal partner, v well written.

one hundred year old man who jumped out the window and disappeared - for my book club meeting next week.

Win some love some. By Anne Marie Forrest. About 3 girls who share a lottery win but it doesn't bring the happiness we all believe it will.

This Is How It Ends by Kathleen MacMahon - good so far.

Game of Thrones, book one.

I don't do fantasy, but I love this! Best think I've read in ages, keep sneaking away from the kids for a quick fix.

Tripwire (3rd Jack Reacher book). Love itsmile I am on a mission to read them all.

Old Filth by Jane Gardam. very amusing.

ItsallFeegle Wed 05-Jun-13 13:43:47

'The Island' by Victoria Hislop.

My friend suggested doing a 'book club for two' and said she's been dying to read this for ages.

In all honesty...I'm really struggling to enjoy it. I'll stick with it though hmm

Ooh Finished 100 yr old man a few weeks ago and really enjoyed. Currently reading 'the cupid effect' by Dorothy Komson. Very lightweight but needed after Marie Stopes' biography.

before i go to sleep
it's intriguing

it's a real page turner but quite disturbing too

Cakes and Ale by Somerset Maugham. Only just started it. Really enjoyed The Painted Veil recently so thought I would try some more of his stuff. Also have Razor's Edge on my to-read pile.

louisianablue2000 Wed 05-Jun-13 14:09:47

Just finished Oryx and Crake. Think I'm going to have to read The Year of the Flood soon. It's the first Margaret Atwood science fiction I've read.

I've got four on the go:

A book about the Antarctic, which is rather too political/scientific for me tbh

Some Orwell essays (The Decline of the English Murder)

Re-reading, 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'

Kipling's, 'Kim' which I'm not getting on terribly well with

YoniBottsBumgina Wed 05-Jun-13 17:17:17

I am between books sad Just finished The Time Traveller's Wife <behind the times>

I enjoyed the start of 100 year old man but got bored around 2/3 into it.

BabeRuthless Wed 05-Jun-13 17:18:07

Joyland by Stephen King for the commute. I love his books, always so readable.

Big Brother by Lionel Shriver for home. I find her a bit hit and miss sometimes but I love this one already.

Hadmeathello Wed 05-Jun-13 17:19:04

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo. The first of his I've read and I'm really enjoying
it so far.

Nerfmother Wed 05-Jun-13 17:22:06

The unknown bridesmaid. It's absolutely compelling and I'm at 93% on the kindle and dreading it being finished .

fuzzpig Wed 05-Jun-13 17:39:31

The Beetle by Richard Marsh. He was a contemporary of Bram Stoker.

BringBackBod Wed 05-Jun-13 19:21:24

Fortune's Rocks by Anita Shreve.
First one I've read by her. Really enjoying it.

I thought 'Joyland' wasn't out for a few more days? envy
