" Memoirs of a Survivor "

by Doris Lessing R.I.P.

My previous entry should have  been a "read" rather than "reading", as the book was bought yesterday and completed in the early hours of this morning. Now back to Doris Lessing, which has been on the go a few days.

Just finished If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor. It really blew my mind.

Now reading Bukowski's Post Office.

I'm re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-reading His Dark Material by Philip Pullman.

My daughter bought the box set last year - neither of us have read it yet. It's on my to-read list!

I'm about half-way through Lev Grossman's "The Magicians" right now, and almost half-way through Aimee Bender's "The Color Master."

The set really is a good read. Hopefully, you will enjoy it too.  :)

I'm enjoying "Words of Radiance" by Brandon Sanderson at the moment.  ;D

Just finished Ghost Country by Patrick Lee.

I couldn't put it down and just discovered it's part of a trilogy. Great read in my humble opinion!
Now I have to read The Breach which was actually the first in the trilogy.

I've just finished the Divergent trilogy, wanted to read the books before the film came out and have just started Legend by Marie Lu.
There not really aimed at my age group(30's) but as I would love to write a dystopian novel I thought it best to read what's already out there first.
