Nevada by Imogen Binnie
I've just started Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini. I read all of her books (17) in the Elm Creek Quilts series and enjoyed them very much. This one seems like more of a non-fiction book about the civil war with some dress making thrown in.
Still reading The Hobbit, nearly finished. Will be moving onto The Girl in the Box series
The World According to Garp by John Irving
Benedetto Croce, Teory and History of Historiography. The hardest book I have ever red.
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
(i've never seen the show)
Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight.
If you liked gone girl the novel not the incomplete movie version you will probably like this book too.
I usually like to read the book first but did not get a chance. By the way the movie was absolutely amazing. More a drama than an action movie but it has both.
Is anyone familiar with the writing of Jimmy Buffet?
A guy was telling me about his novels and short stories. I like his music but I am not a parrot head.
Blue is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh
Unnatural Creatures (a collection of short stories about mythical beasts)
Also lots of comics, started All new X-factor. It's really good but I've already found out its been cancelled.
Alone (The Girl in the Box Book 1) by Robert J. Crane
That sounds like something I'd love. Who's it by?
I'm currently reading Damned by Chuck Palahniuk. I'm 80 pages in and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it and if I like it or not. It's a bizarre book.
Neil Gaiman picked the stories (and wrote one of them) but they're a mix of fantasy authors. Dianna wynne jones is one of the people. Lots that I don't know.
Then I definitely have to check it out. I haven't read a ton of Gaiman but I've loved what I have read.
He's one of my very favourite authors.
I've read a few of his short stories, Stardust, and Good Omens which he co-wrote with Terry Pratchett who I also adore. If you haven't read it I highly recommend it.
I love Good omens. It's how I ended up getting into him. I'm a massive Terry Pratchett fan too and have been reading his books since I was 9 (ish).
Breakfast on Pluto by Patrick McCabe
