I recently read We're All Damaged by Matthew Norman, as one of the first books I've actually sat down and read for fun since high school killed whatever part of me once enjoyed that. It's not anything that's gonna revolutionize modern fiction, but it was a solid read that kept me coming back night after night. Aside from fiction, you can find me consistently rereading Yes Please by Amy Poehler because... Because it's Amy Poehler.

I just binge read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was pretty good.

ahh they all sound good i have read the one Asha is on about cause i read it and said he should read it and its taken months for him to start.

I'm currently reading ready for my 3rd year at uni so Ive read 3 in the last two weeks, Ive read Fight Club, which i felt dragged a little and i found boring, Silver Linings Playbook which i really enjoyed and think it is way better than the film and Ive read girl interrupted which i thought was good but completely different to the film.

Dunno what book I'm gonna start next i have about 13/14 books left to read


is the cursed child worth a read?? i was going to buy it but weren't sure it was gonna be any good :)

I loved Cursed Child, it's my new favorite book, but if you didn't like the Prisoner of Azkaban, or if you hated the other Harry Potter books in general, you may not like it.

It is a screenplay, but one written in a way that imitates J.K. Rowling's style.

Nothing But the Truth by Avi. It's SO realistic. And a little scary by the reality, to be honest. But it's not a horror book, so don't worry.

This website is fun!
