Hmm.. The Edge of Reason by Helen Fielding. Bridget Jones! I bought the book sooo many months ago. And I'm still nowhere near the middle of story. No time.

As for "light" reading, Nancy Drew. Really light reading

Aside from my textbooks

1. The complete book of murder. This book gives descriptions of all the trends of murders from the beginning of time, highlights well known murders and tells stories of lesser known murders. Its a very interesting book but its so thick. When people see me reading that, they kind of back away. But seriously, its such an interesting novel. It's all true crime. I think so far, the most interesting murderer I've read about is Vlad the Impaler.

2. A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks. This is by the same guy who wrote the novels that the movies Message in A Bottle and A Walk To Remember. I love how this man writes. He is so creative. All of his stories are so heart warming. I have a soft spot.

I just realized how diverse my taste in reading material is.

Without giving too much away,Lena,the narration in it is unbelievable. While,horrifying and gruesome as much as it is,its candor and explicities draws you into the story as if you're actually smelling the contrasting scents he describes.

I love the Tin Drum. I'm planning to re-read it soon.
