I loved 1984 when I read it, although very strange how his predictions have come true... x

I'm now re-reading 'Education, Edukation, Edukashun,' by James Rainsford. I first found it on It's one of the funniest books I've ever read. There are reviews here:Education, Edukation, Edukashun

'Good Harbour' by Anita Diamant- it's a surprisingly good read. Then onto 'Very Valentine' by Adriana Trigiani. :)

'The Lacuna' by Barbara Kingsolver - her first novel for about 10 years. Having read 'The Poisonwood Bible' and 'Animal Dreams' by her, and having been very impressed by them, I just had to give this new one a go. I haven't got far enough with it to form a proper critical judgement yet, but am certainly enjoying it: I just wish I had more time to devote to it, as it is a big book and there are so many other distractions at this time of year.
In non-fiction I am reading 'The Cross and the Crescent' by Richard Fletcher, about the relations between christians and muslims in the early centuries of Islam. Not a heavy read by any means, but good clear-eyed and informative history.

Bedtime reading is currently:
Virgil's The Aeneid
Favorite Tales from the Arabian Nights' Entertainments translated by Richard F Burton
Paradise Lost by John Milton
Determined this time to read all three by the end of March. Tried last year as well so not sure I will, but I certainly fall asleep fast.

The Lost Symbol -- Dan Brown. I'm not a great fan of Dan Brown - I thought his Da Vinci Code was a badly written morass from start to finish. The Lost Symbol ( a Christmas present from my son, so I have to read it!) is full of meaningless references which confuse and, quite frankly, bore the pants off me. But, I will persist and hopefully enjoy (but please, please, please not another film based on this!) I've also recently read Bog Standard Britain by Quentin Letts -- funny but tragic.

Have just finished 'Finding Forever 2 - The Night of the Eighth Day which is the sequel to Finding Forever. Hope there's a third one in the series at some point - they were extremely well written and contained a lot of passion and raw emotion.

I'm reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson, and also Friends Like These by Danny Wallace, and listening to the audiobook of The Lovely Bones in anticipation of the film. I forgot how much I liked this book when I read it the first time.

The Stepsister Scheme by Jim C. Hines, & it's awesome. It's faerietales with a twist.
I've nearly finished it & next on the list is Rosemary & Rue by Seanan McGuire.
As you can tell I love dark, modern faerie novels.
