That's what happened to me with All These Years. It's actually lying next to me on the nightstand and I haven't touched it in months. I can't even remember what the last bit I've read was about.

@AppleScruffJunior Great taste! I've once read The Catcher in the Rye for school and loved it so read it a few times more and seeing it being mentioned makes me want to read it again! I've also read Alice in Wonderland various times. Read Through the looking glass too, but didn't really like it.

I also want to read The fault in our stars by John Green, because I've seen the film which I loved but heard the book was even better. I hate library books though, they're so gross with dead animals, stains and snot in them. Yuck.

Same as me with 'Through The Looking Glass' but I did last look at it when I was 8 so I might give it another try. 

I read TFIOS about in mid 2012 (before it was mainstream *cough-hipster-ASJ-cough*) haven't picked it up since. It didn't do that much for me, I predicted the ending about a 1/4 way through. I'm not a very sad-romance genre person anyways and no I didn't cry at the end :P

Actually I'm trying to remember if any book has ever made me cry or am I just Miss Stoneheart. A couple of biographies have made me cry and the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (it still makes me cry <.<     >.>     <.< ) . That's about it though :/

That's exactly what my books are doing, staring at me begging to be read. Which I should do, now that I think about it.

One of my best friends read it back then too, and she kept going on about it, which annoyed me. I was very much into that kind of books back then, but never read The fault in our stars. I did read Before I die though, which was very sad as well, especially the ending, which was very well written. That has been made into a movie as well, called Now is good, which is a nonsense title and makes me wonder why they couldn't just use the original title. I usually cry when someone dies. I remember reading a book about a kid who had cancer when I was 12, and it was based on a true story. I was upset over that book for weeks.

I can't remember if Harry Potter made me cry. It probably did. I actually wanted to start reading them again, but I couldn't find the first book!

Was it "achtste groepers huilen niet" @Linde?

I also read that book, it was so sad and yes, I cried.

Yes it was! That book was also made into a movie last year or so. I wanted to see it, but I think it might be too childish.

It's so sad, isn't it? 

I saw the movie, I guess it was alright. I preferred the book, though. The movie didn't actually make me cry. And some parts in the movie weren't in the book. Which is normal for a movie, but those kind of things annoy me. 

I guess it would be a bit childish for you, considering your age.

Yeah, I can't really deal with movies or books that are about cancer. I usually prefer books over movies, because it's very often that a movie misses bits which I think are quite essential. Yeah, someone I know went to see it though. But it would be like going to the cinema to see Frozen. Everyone loves that movie but it's meant for children and if you'd go to see it the room would probably be filled with 12 year olds.

I heard you talk about Kate Williams and about how you wanted to work at Ahhh Girl's library but only if they had Kate Williams!!!!!

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

After what seemed like 8 years, 14 months, 45 days, 28 hours and 79 minutes i've finally finished 'Revolver: why its better than Pepper' (aka 'Revolver: How The Beatles Re-Imagined Rock 'n' Roll'). A very good book it was too.

Have moved on to 'George Harrison: Behind The Locked Door' which is better if not superior to it going by what i've read so far, estimated time of completion is before Paul releases the next in his archive series, nice to give yourself a good few years to finish a book.

I am reading One Summer by Bill Bryson, a book all about the summer of 1927 and the notable figures of that age: Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, Al Capone, Henry Ford, etc. It's quite a fascinating read.

I'm reading A Tale of Two Cities at the moment.

 

One of the last books I read (I love reading) was also a Charles Dickens' novel, David Copperfield. I absolutely loved it, it's excellent! I want to read all Dickens' books (I have already read Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol, both excellent), including, of course, the one you're reading. Are you enjoying it? a-hard-days-night-paul-8

 

I'm not reading, I'm rereading a book I loved, Son of the Shadows, by Juliet Marillier, who is one of my favourite writers.

I'm almost finished Blood's A Rover, the final part in James Ellroy's American Underworld trilogy, an incredible fusion of crime and political intrigue. It is intense, brutal, profound, and labyrinthine in its plotting. All the Ellroy hallmarks, taken to the max. For me, James Ellroy and Cormac McCarthy stand equal as greatest living writers.

It's been so long since I've read a novel. I can't get away from reading books about the Beatles. I'm currently 20 pages or so from finishing my second reading of Tune In. Amazon says my new order, The Man Who Made the Beatles: An Intimate Biography of Brian Epstein should be in my mailbox when I get home…yippee!!
