Joining in too!! I read almost exclusively on my iPhone now, using the iBooks and Kindle apps, depending on where I bought the ebook.

So far this year:

01. The False Friend - Myla Goldberg - pretty good drama novel, the twist at the end made the book for me. It's a bit slow in places, but since the end was pretty vital, I'm glad I pushed through and finished it.
02. Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey -> LOVED it. It contains some adult content, for the kids amongst us, but I didn't mind it one bit - it wasn't gratuitous, but instead enhanced the story. An amazing fantasy novel, that had me captivated from the first page.
03. Kushiel's Chosen by Jacqueline Carey -> about 90% through! Loved the first book in the Kushiel series so much I had to start book 2 right away.

This is such a good idea, I really need to read more!

1. The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath..I thought it would be quite pretentiously written but I actually found it very easy to relate to and it was really honestly written.
2. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky..I enjoyed it, I thought it was refreshing to see a portrayal of a teenage life through a boys eyes. My mum couldn't finish it, found it too 'teen'.

Currently reading Lord Of The Flies, by William Golding.

01. Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon - [**]
02. Wild Swans by Jung Chang - [*****]
03. The Black Book of Psychoanalysis by Catherine Meyer - [***]
04. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - [****]
05. Here Comes Trouble by Michael Moore - [****]
06. I Killed Scheherazade by Joumana Haddad - [***]
07. Ímpio by Fábio Marton - [***]
08. Tete-a-tete by Hazel Rowley - [****]

09. Religion for Atheists by Alain de Botton

So, just finished Tete-a-tete, and it was a very engaging read,
I'm glad I read it because I have always heard of the couple
Sartre and Beauvoir, and I used to picture them as this
beautiful and idealized love story, and from this book's perspective
they are obviously just as flawed as everyone else. I feel right now, like it's
hard for me to believe in fairytales, it makes me frustrated and envious,
and this portrait just humanized this story without making it less
beautiful.

I've read the first 100 pages of Ken Follet's The Pillars of the Earth and it's so good! I mean it's enourmous and I don't know how much time it will take me to read it but I'm delighted!

^it's one of my fave books ever, it's beautiful and although it's so huge, you'll want more once you've finished it. i didn't like the first 300 pages or so too much, but then i couldn't put it down

I'm still stuck on these three:

01. The Night Circus by Erin Mortensen
02. Drowning Ruth by Christina Schwarz
03. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte


I can already see I'm going to suck at this challenge.
I don't have time to read, because of school.

3. Ciuleandra by Liviu Rebreanu- a romanian novel by a romanian author I'd actually never read it if I didn't have to for school but I really loved it! Rebreanu is probablly my favo romanian author, his novels are great. Ciuleandra was one really amazing psychological novel. I think it hasn't been translated in english, but if someone's interested there's a movie.
