    I am reading “The Education of Little Tree” by Forrest Green. Lovely book about an orphan who goes and lives with his cherokee indina grandparents in 1920’s america. Very touching and sweet.


    Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah

    Its about a young chinese girl named Adeline Yen Mah. Born the fifth child to an affluent Chinese family her life begins tragically. Adeline’s mother died shortly after her birth due to complications bought on by the delivery, and in Chinese culture this marks her as cursed or bad luck. This situation is compounded by her father’s new marriage to a lady who has little affection for her husband’s five children. She displayed overt antagonism and distrust towards all of the children, particularly Adeline, whilst favoring her own younger son and daughter born soon after the marriage. The book outlines Adeline’s struggle to find a place where she feels she belongs. Denied love from her parents, she finds some solace in relationships with her grandfather Ye Ye, and her Aunt Baba, but they are taken from her. Adeline immerses herself in striving for academic achievement in the hope of winning favour, but also for its own rewards as she finds great pleasure in words and scholarly success


    I’m reading 1984 by George Orwell…It’s a classic about living in a totalitarian world. A world where you are under constant watch by Big Brother. A world where truth and liberty are long lost concepts. It really makes you grateful for what you have. Just think, in a world like that, there would be NO skateboarding! :O scary!


    Underground London: Travels Beneath the City Streets. Its all about..well, whats underneath London! From abandoned tube stations, to forgotten rivers, to secret bunkers. I love that there is all that history and mystery beneath my feet as I wander about on the surface.


    Miles To Go: By Miley Cyrus

    It is a very good book it is about her life so far and she exsplains how she got on at school which was not good because she got bullied and not many people liked her.

    Also it talks about more emotional things like how her grandad died and at that time she had been in L.A because that is where she had to do the shooting for Hannah Montana and then her grandad got put into hospital and her dad was having to fly back and forth so he could be with his dad and miley. The thing that was upsetting was that her grandad said if i die i am going to die after i have seen the first Hannah Montana episode.

    But she also talks about her fellings, for example when she had her first small concert she talks about how she felt and she said that when she first started Singing she felt a tiny bit nervous but then it soon went away.

    Marion Keyes ‘Watermelon’

    It’s about a woman whos husband leaves her for another woman, just after she gives birth to their first daughter. The stories unravels how she becomes independent and overcomes the break up. She is then surprised to find a new love from a caring, non selfish man.

    I love Marion Keyes books!

    I am reading Dr. Tatiana’s Sex Advice to All Creation by Olivia Judson. It is a unique guide to the evolutionary biology of sex in the style of an agony aunt column for animals. It highlights all the weird quirks of animal sex lives. My old biology teacher used to read it to us and it inspired us in the lessons, hehe.

    Julie Booth

    I have just read Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffeneger. It is very different to The Time Travellers wife, but both were brilliant. The latter made me cry, whilst the former I found rather disturbing.


    Who is Charlie Keeper? Marcus Alexander
    finally realised that …..Charlie may never keep her big mouth shut and keep her opinions to herself.
    Now! who does that remind me of????

    Moonlight in Odessa by Janet Skeslien Charles. Only just started to read it but already I can’t put it down. Its about Eastern Europe mail-order brides. Really very funny.

    Mock the Week by Dan Patterson

    I’m reading ‘My sister’s keeper’ by Jodie Picoult. It was recently made into a film. I really shouldnt read it just before going to sleep though. Firstly, because it makes me cry and secondly because I cant put it down once I start reading. I’ve nearly finished reading it now and highly recommend it!
