How to Be a Woman - Caitlin Moran

How are you liking it? I've heard extremely mixed reviews.



I am on the first chapter...so far I do not. I read it is supposed to be funny and witty, I do not get that so far. :/

Yes, together with what Shy Mox said, that fits with what I read about it. I think I will give it a miss.

Finished Beloved by Toni Morrison WHICH WAS SO SAD but really really good.

I bawled my eyes out.

PS...Read Cargo of Orchids by Susan Musgrave. It is similar in style and somewhat inspired by Beloved, but SO fascinating.

meh, not feeling it at all and want to put it away. but at only 150 pages, that would feel like total failure.

I'm still reading "Watchmen" (gonna finish it tonight and watch the movie) but I went to the library today and found "Heart Shaped Box" by Joe Hill. I've been waiting to read this since I heard it was coming out... so excited!

Finally caught up on this thread! Excited about the books I've added to my list. I finished The Woman In White last week, and I really enjoyed it! It was slow going at first, but after about 250 pages I was really in to it.

I'm reading Townie by Andre Dubus III right now, and it's taking me a while to get into it as well. I think because it's real and kind of taking me out of my comfort zone.

I am loving it. I came into it with no expectations, but it's surprisingly action packed for a story told through second person flashbacks (kind of). Spielberg is tackling a film adaptation, and I think it'll be fairly rad. I haven't read any of Wilson's other books, but I will now.

Finally getting around to No Country For Old Men. Thumbs up so far! (As expected, of course.)

I adore Jane Eyre as much as I loathe Wuthering Heights.

Dr Apricot got me going on the Leviathan trilogy. Loving it. She gives great recommendations.

I couldn't find an available library copy of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl so I'm reading Dark Places, one of her earlier novels.

And I finished it today, highly recommended to anyone looking for something action packed and near-future dystopian. With robots.

Catcher in the Rye by Salinger. Almost finished. I kinda know the ending but I still can't see what all the fuss is about this book. But then maybe it's a guy thing.

Possibly my most favourite series ever. And the drawings are wonderful!

Just finished The Beautiful and the Damned. I didn't really like it. I probably should've stopped reading as soon as I realised that the main characters were entitled rich people. I might try some other Fitzgerald later, but I think my next book is gonna be non-fiction.

Try The Pat Hobby Stories by Fitzgerald. The very opposite of rich people life. Fitzgerald was once a writer in Hollywood and the stories are loosely based on his time there.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

I guess I'm too old to remember my life at 16.

When I was at secondary school we had to keep a record of books we read. My English teacher was not that impressed with my choices... (not in an unkind way). I think 'The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants' was the tiping point and he gave me a scribbled list of suggested books. I found it recently, now aged 23, having not read any of the books and decided to give them a go. I've started with 'A Room with a View' and its fine but these sort of books, with an older style of the English language, take a long time for me to get into. I'm hoping it will be rewarding in the end. Has anyone else read it and enjoyed it?

I loved A Room with a View. I know what you mean about it taking a while to get into, but it is well worth persevering, and if you like it, have a go at some of his others. Howard's End is wonderful, as is A Passage to India.
