Book worm

11.3.10

Do you like to read? When I was a youngster I would read book after book. I remember getting my first proper full time job and having loads of disposable income and I would place a huge Amazon order for books every month. Lately it seems I only have time for a quick flick through Look magazine every week and blog reading.

So.. I have picked up an easy piece of 'Chick-Lit' to get me going again; Confessions of a Shopaholic. After 2 nights of reading I'm half way through it! I have added a reading list to the sidebar of my blog so you can see what I'm reading and what is lined up next.

I would love recommendations from you guys! My favourites are all by Stephen King (Misery, The Shining, Bachman Books) but I also love anything romantic and I'm partial to a bit of mystery and suspense. Please let me know what your favourites are in the comments box below :)

That reminds me, I did a tag a while ago about some of my favourite reads.. click HERE to check it out.

  3. Meg Cabot is probably my favourite author
    if you want romance try:
    Every Buys Got One
    Queen Of Babble series
    if you want crime investigation try:
    Size 12 isn't fat
    Size 14 isn't fat either

    these are all by Cabot

  11. One of the better things of spending two hours everyday travelling to and from work is that its the best excuse to pick up reading again. I'm really just making my way through my mam's selection to save mine for when I move out! I love it though!

    Daphne du Maurier is my all time favourite writer - Rebecca is just fabulous and so mysterious that it really grips you.

  12. I love reading, and don't buy enough books as I should. I do often pick up one in a charity shop every now and again.
    I love Martina Cole books, all about gangsters, pimps and scumbags. Makes for a great read.
    Dean Koontz may be on your wave length if you like Steven King.

  13. I love reading too but don't have much time for it anymore either. James Patterson books are great especially the ones with the lead dectective called with Alex Cross.
    I've got The Time Traveller's Wife sitting on my bedside table just screaming to be read but I'm waiting until I have enough time to enjoy it! x

  16. I love to read too, and like you when I was younger my nose was always buried in a book. Books I could read again and again include Pride and Prejudice, Angels and Demons, Atonement, Harry Potter (3-7 are my favourites!), Mallory Towers, all the Shopaholic books and 1984. Recent reads include Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella (loved this), the True Blood books and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. :)

  17. Reading is seriosuly one of my favourite past times. Especially with a cup of tea in a rose printed tea-cup and saucer, sitting near my window..just helps me relax and get ready to loose myself in a good book!

  19. I love all the shopaholic books. They are just so addictive, well written and funny. I recommend reading them all and any other books by Sophie Kinsella. My next read will be her latest Twenties Girl xx

  20. Aw I have a couple of books sitting on my shelf just now that I havent had time to read :( I read " A Year In High Heels" By Camilla Morton when I was on holiday this year and it was so good! A really girlie, inspiring book. Would defo recommend it x

  21. I agree with Jenny9119999, all Sophie Kinsella's books are fab. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the shopaholic books; I'd avoid the shopaholic movie though...! Can You Keep a Secret? and Remember Me are probably my favourite of her other books.

  22. I love the shopaholic books too!

    My favourite author is Mauve Binchy. She doesn't really fit in with the genres that you listed but her books are SO nice and super addicting. They're all rather large but you fly through them because you can't put them down! The nice thing is that she's written tons of books so they should be easy to find in a second hand book store for super cheap, that's where I got most of mine!

  23. I was and continue to be an avid reader! I am reading the new book by the author of the Time Traveller's Wife. It is called Her Fearful Symmetry (gothic ghost story!) set in London. It's about twin sisters who inherit their aunt's house in London. it's pretty good so far!

  25. There are 5 books in the 'Shopahollic' series,I'm going for nr.3 next.

    I'm currently reading 'The Lovely Bones',and am loving it so far (saw yesterday that you've read this a while ago - I only heard about it when I saw the movie previews,lol).

    Another series that I think you would enjoy,is the Sookie Stackhouse books (on which the show 'True Blood' is based).There are 9 books total,and they are really easy and fun to read.

  32. Cold Mountain is definitely a winner in my book. haha. but seriously, such a good book! :D

  33. Ok then, my suggestion is a book that is both pleasant and intriguing, but also very psychological and full of black humour.
    It's a classic: The excluded woman, by Luigi Pirandello
