Ive just started reading THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE by Audrey Niffenegger. Im finding it a bit hard to get into, but going to persevere as I've heard it's a great read. Anyone else read this one? Would love to hear any feedback. :)

I loooooooved The Time Travellers Wife. Yes, it gets a bit choppy and hard to figure out their ages and keep that in your head (even though it tells you what age they are at).... but it gets easier to keep the focus I think. I adored it.

My partner calls me Lisa Simpson because I LOVE TO READ!!

LC - The Time Travelers Wife is one of the best books I've ever read. I was half way through it when I went on a tour to Egypt. I had to take it with me cos I couldn't put it down! I finished it on a train from Cairo to Luxor and cried and cried and cried!!

AND - Matchbox, Alice Sebolds Lucky is brilliant too - make sure you have your tissues ready!

I love Jodie Picoults books now...My Sisters Keeper is another of my favs, the Pact was brilliant and I'm reading Salem Falls now!!

hhhmmm....I am Lisa Simpson!!! :shock: :lol:

I finished the book and it was EXCELLENT! A lot of it I could relate to, some was sad, some funny, some was actually unbelieveable (as in I dont believe what she was saying..like it was so easy for her to lose weight...?!!?!?) but overall I couldn't put it down and have ordered the other book. Ill let you know how it goes...

I have just finished reading 'The Next Thing on my List' by Jill Smolinski, and it is awesome... I laughed and cried... and handed the book to my Mum, my best mate, the girl that I work with and my sister. They all loved it. The funny thing is that I haven't read a full book for 5 years since I left high school but this had me waiting the whole way through... Read it in a day! Couldn't recommend it further...

I just finished "The Day After Tomorrow" by John Marsden. Loved it. Can't wait to get the next one in the series.

Now I am reading "The Kite Runner" and loving it :)

I have just finished reading The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl. Highly recommended. She has lost over half her body weight, went o/s on a working holiday and found the guy she is now married to. I have not read her blogs, but the book is based on them. It is funny and (for me anyway) totally relatable. Highly recommended. I have read AJ Rochester's books and I preferred this one.
