    The Diana Chronicles by Tina Brown. A good, gossipy read.

    I finished Deathly Hallows last Saturday morning after staying up as late as I could on Friday night (4am) before caving in to sleep. It's excellent!!

    Just started "The Time Travellers Wife" - Audrey Niffenegger, I really like it so far

    I was really let down at the end of it...loved the rest of the book...I just expected more at the end.

    I'm on to Isaac's Storm right now, not really sure if I like it yet or not.

    Currently I'm halfway through "It's kind of a funny story" by Ned Vizzini. And it's not all that funny, more depressing given the subject matter. Before that I read "The Brooklyn Follies" which was alright, I like most of Auster's books and "All families are psychotic" by Coupland which was really weird, I expected something different from the title.

    And even before that I read "Ensemble c'est tout" by Anna Gavalda, I don't know the title of the english translation, which wasn't so much my cup of tea, it was ok overall, but it had a super-cheesy ending. I will probably still see the upcoming movie adaption with Audrey Tautou.

    Next up is "We need to talk about Kevin".

    i saw 'ensemble c'est tout' and it's cute but quite light. guillaume canet's hotness makes it tolerable.

    "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte

    Somehow it happened that I've never read it before.

    Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles and The Stations of the Sun, both by Ronald Hutton. Very interesting if you like this sort of thing.

    Cookbooks that I am currently reading ... The Scots Kitchen by F. Marian MacNeill and Jamie's Dinners by Jamie Oliver. I've already found some dishes I want to cook.

    I read that when I was about 14, and again a few years ago. It's still a great read.

    Pretty saucy for the 1950's New England, too. I can only imagine the stir it must've caused when it came out.
