Unbearable Lightness by Portia De Rossi. So far it's unputdownable.


I thought this book was excellent. I am saddened by what she went through, and I truly hope Ellen makes her laugh every day all the time and feel immensely loved (and that she lives herself, too!).

So I kinda read Dawn, the first book of Lilith's Brood, in less than 24 hours, haha. I rarely do that with books anymore! It was great but really sad, so I'm going to read Four and Twenty Blackbirds by Cherie Priest before I read the next one.

It was one of the rare times that I liked the movie more than the book. The movie wrapped up nicely...The book did not.

I am reading: The Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Heidi W. Durrow

I just finished Julie and Julia (which I enjoyed, super fluffy read) and I'm half way through the Science of Yoga - super interesting!


I enjoyed 'Julie and Julia', but found Julie Powell a bit unlikeable - moreso in the book than the film.

At the moment I'm reading 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog' and can't put it down!

I don't know if I posted this already, but I recently realized I have read all the Octavia Butler there is to read, save a couple of Patternist books. The library does not have them. I am sad. What will I do when there is no Octavia Butler left to read?

I haven't watched the movie yet, apparently its a lot more "twilight" than the book (not that there is anything wrong with Twilight)? There is a prequel book coming soon that I'm looking forward to.

Kitteh, I really liked the Graceling and I'm on to the second book. The female characters are great!


Okay, finished the whole trilogy in 4 days of marathon reading. I really, really liked it. Fantasy isn't my genre, normally, but I loved this series. Lots of badass women.

Nicely done - will bump these up my list!

I just finished Neil Gaiman's new one (The Ocean at the End of the Lane) and really enjoyed it. I found the end to be almost unbearably sad and I'm not entirely sure why. I'll have to go back and re-read it in a couple of months (when it's not so fresh in my mind) and see if I can figure out why it affected me that way.

Now I'm back to the second Game of Thrones book. It's not zooming by as fast as the first one did, unfortunately.

I started Criminal, the new(ish) Karin Slaughter, but the description of the treatment of the murder victim in the first chapter was so horrible I had to put it down. Maybe I will go back to it later. Meanwhile I've started Shakespeare's Wife by Germaine Greer, which came highly recommended by the librarian at work.

Oh, I really hate that! Some authors I don't mind saying I've read everything (like Edgar Allan Poe) and its over, but I'm probably going to be sad when I'm done Octavia Butler, and I'm holding off on a Shirley Jackson anthology because I don't want to be done with her yet.

It was not like Twilight at all...It had more humor and again it wrapped up nicely. I felt the book ending just dragged on. I know the second book has already been started....

Yeah, I hate when I love an author and read all their stuff and there's nothing wonderful to discover left of them. Unfortunately, many of my favorite authors (including Shirley Jackson!) had short lives so there's only so much out there.

Picked up the Richard Burton Diaries from the liberry again. Eager to pick up where I left off (page 409, I remembered exactly). Another book that I don't want to see an end to. Richard, I missed you! <3

Just finished V for Vendetta, which is a lot better than the movie IMO.

Now reading All Dogs Are Blue, which is a rather strange read, and/but there are occasional almost random highlights that stick out beautifully from the ongoing ramble.

If you liked V for Vendetta then I seriously recommend Watchmen too, also by Alan Moore and also much better than the film!
