    Just finished Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates. The book was good but now I want to watch the movie to compare. (The book always tends to be better anyway.)

    I started reading Revenge Wears Prada, the sequel to The Devil Wears Prada, and so far, it's meh.

    I just finished Life After Life- Kate Atkinson.

    I really liked it. It's a sort of conceptual novel, about reincarnation into the same life and the alternate courses a life can take.

    Started Game of Thrones. Going to start the Catelyn chapter. It's like reading the first episode from the show.

    Reading Martin Gilbert's The Holocaust. I had to put it down for a couple of days because it's so intense. Gilbert (who was Churchill's official biographer) ticks off the statistics, but in between recounts bone-chilling (and poignant) anecdotes from survivors about their actual experiences.

    ^^ Books on the Holocaust are important - but I tend to stay away from them - they hurt me deep down and stay with me a long time.

    Last night I stayed up till 3am reading The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and then proceeded to have a mental breakdown because it was so heart breaking, I'm not sure I've recovered yet.

    I liked it too but I found the ending so sad, then again I have just lost a Grandparent, so maybe I'm just a little emotional about old people at the moment.

    I thought it was sad as well. It choked me up.

    Some of the stories make a person want to take to bed for a week. Beyond description. Now I know why Elie Wiesel said movies can't really be made about the Holocaust; it's painful enough reading about it.

    I've recently started reading the Sisterhood of the Travelling pants series. I'm currently starting book 3. I've liked it so far. I wish the films were better and more like the books.

    A Dirty Job- Christopher Moore


    It's about a man who suddenly becomes Death. It's hilarious so far.

    I'm just about to start the final book in the Wheel of Time series. I'd like to say it's been a labour of love, but really it's just been a labour. This book better have the most spectacular ending in history.
