Hey Belinda - if the books are from the same 'publisher' as you, it's still spamming - it's actually worse, it kinda implies a micro publisher is encouraging this kind of behaviour. It's all too easy for a pub to get a bad reputation for vanity publishing.

Just keep your promo's to MOA, and you'll be fine.

(Ooh look - mardibooks charges to publish you - isn't there a name for that kind of thing...)

Not sure what genre i would put it in - it was a blog a few years ago and this is the whole blog posts with additional sort of private diary entries.

Am now reading Wicked Women of the 19th Century

Ok thanks I will go look.

Have just finished The Gladiator's Master. Good use of historical events to support her emotionally charged story. It also reflects the more open sexuality of that era...when compared to repressed post Victorian times.

Charlie B - a bit late, but i kept meaning to reply. If you like The Sisters Brothers I'd highly recommend seeing the film Dead Man [DVD] if you get a chance. In my opinion The Sisters Brothers had a very similar feel to it.

Just finished reading the second Of the Hunger Games trilogy 'Catching Fire'. Ok so far, nothing brilliant. Read David Walliams ' Mr Stink' in between. Got into when I took the little one to the library. Enjoyed it better.No way is Hunger Games anywhere as good as Twilight. Perhaps that's why I am not overly fussed on it. It's a different read. Best book by far I have read in the past few weeks is Jojo Moyes 'Me before you' - fan bloody tastic best book I have read in a long long time

Thanks Garscadden, I'll definitely give that a watch!

Just finished Dead Simple by Peter James, really enjoyed it. One of a few books that I've actually wanted to keep reading past my bedtime (yes yes, i've 29 but sleep is important to me!)

Tonight, I'm going to start Flatland by Edwin Abbott. Its a complete curve ball for my reading genre but hopefully an enjoyable break (if not a short one).

Half way through The Night Circus and quite enjoying it although very confused at times, lol. Got a recommendation from my friend to start reading the Mortal Instruments Books by Cassandra Clare, so reading the first one of these called City of bones. If you are in to demons, vampires etc then you should enjoy these books although a little more steamy than some.

Read Ann Mayburn's Daughter of Lust which has an unusual concept of hell as a parallel world on a different plane where demons and devils work like medieval feudal lords but as part of the natural order within Gods plan. Loved it and look forward to the next in the trilogy.

Have just started Maya Angelou's 'I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings' having read 'Brave New World' by Aldous Huxley and Patrick Gale's 'A Perfectly Good Man'.

charlie b, once you've finished I'd like to know what you thought of it. It's in an anthology I have, but doesn't look terribly appealing, and shan't waste time on it if its only value is historical.

Have just finished Lulu (first version) by Wedekind. One of those things I kept seeing references to & so felt I should read. Strange, but leaves a lot of room for interpretation which is always a good thing. Several films made of it/based on it, most famously Blue Angel w/M. Dietrich.

Thought about rereading JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye analyze why I liked it so much as a teen.

Have a review to write for The Second Advent: Disciples which is an extremely intelligent religious thriller by a knowledgable author Lex. It will have to be 5 star as even objectively and critically I can't find much against it. It is somewhat anti organized religion & global corporation but for spirituality and explains God in a way I could accept where as I've seen no evidence of an omniscient, omnipresent, father figure god who has a plan and cares for humans! Trouble is Lex uses science theory, religious artifact evidence that makes his FICTION plausible! Help.

I've just finished reading the first book in the Stephanie Plum series - "One For the Money". I didnt think i was going to like it at all but i ended up really getting into it and i'll definately give the next few books in the series a try.
I have Khalad Hosseini's "A Thousand Splendid Suns" picked to read next. It's one of those books that has been sitting in my "to be read" pile of books for a couple of years now but for whatever reason i havent been tempted to pick it up until now, despite it coming highly recommended from all who read it!

Reading 'The Heavenfield' by I.G.Hulme on kindle. I would say it's like a modern day 'Dune' perhaps? Dark Sci-Fi thriller. Top notch so far! The Heavenfield

I finished A Dog Named Slugger this morning - couldnt finish it in my lunchbreak yesterday, although not due to time. Really really enjoyed it.

Am now going to read Titanic by Filson Young.
