    Nicholas Sparks

    I used to read every book Nicholas Sparks wrote! Now, all I have to do is read the back of the book and I know exactly what happens! I wouldn't read any more of his books! I can't comment on who is the better author out of Cormac McCarthy as I haven't read The Road or seen the movie, but...

    1001 books you must read before you die.

    I know that there has been debate on whether we should take any notice of the books on this list and also whether we should read them as reading books should be up to our own choice and interests! From personal experience and putting my attention to reading these books, I have to admit that I...

    Slow goings

    I know lots of people loved the book, ¨The Time Traveller´s Wife¨, but for about 100-200 of the pages, I struggled with the different time frames and only towards the finish, did I understand what was actually going on. I agree that age does play a factor in reading. When I was studying at...

    Some of you people are doing really well with having read these books because I have only read about 13! LOL Some of the books I want to read, but I find reading classical books really difficult - I prefer junk :) Does anyone have any tips for me so that I can improve on how many classical...

    Jasper Fforde

    I really enjoyed ¨The Eyre Affair¨ and I will be reading the next in the series as soon as I get it from the library! I also want to read the Nursery Crimes books. I think they are just a lot of fun and clever!

    Dan Brown

    I read ¨The Da Vinci Code¨and thought it was an ok book - it kept me turning the pages! I then started to read ¨Angels and Demons¨and thought I was rereading ¨The Da Vinci Code¨ - I couldn´t finish the book. I also started to read ¨Digital Fortress¨ but that is an aborted attempt. I find all...

    Charles Dickens

    I have to admit I have not read all of his books :( BUT, ¨A Tale of Two Cities¨ is a fantastic book and I really enjoyed ¨David Copperfield¨ too! I have to read ¨Great Expectations¨as well, that is on my to read list, but it has been on it for years! The characters in these books were very...

    Who is your favourite author, and why?

    It is hard to pick one author! I have enjoyed Charles Dickens´ books - ¨David Copperfield¨ and also ¨A Tale of Two Cities¨¨, but my all time favourite book is ¨The Scarlet Pimpernel¨by Baroness Orczy. I have read a few books by James Patterson, but ¨You´ve Been Warned¨was one of the worst...

    I first saw his books recommended on a top 100 book recommendation list from a book shop! I have read all 7 of the Women´s Murder Club and enjoyed them! Though I started getting bored with the last few, but I will read the 8th one expected out later this year! I have also read ¨Suzanne's...

    Disagree with ending?

    I have to say that one book I was really disappointed with the ending was ¨My Sister´s Keeper¨ by Jodi Picoult. I really enjoyed the book until the ending :(
