    My DH is the same height as me, so not much romantic wife carrying going on here, either

    Just finished the new Jodi Picoult.
    Twice I had to stop reading to have a little sob and talk myself into continuing to read...

    Have also just finished Jodi Picoult's new book. Found it pretty tough to read at times, just can't fathom that something so terrible is etched into history

    Now I need a new book

    January
    Looking for Alaska by John Green
    1-2-3 Magic by Thomas Phelan

    February
    What happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
    The Mothers' Club by Fiona Higgins

    March
    Home by Toni Morrison
    The other side of the story- Marian Keyes
    The Boy who fell to Earth- Kathy Lette
    The testament of Mary- Colm Toibin

    I didn't actually finish the Kathy Lette, her writing style really rubs me up the wrong way.

    Next up in April: This is how you lose her and The Help.
    Still haven't read anything that's knocked my socks off and it's 1/4 of the way through the year, how depressing. I read at least half a dozen incredible books last year.

    January:

    All 3 Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson
    Quirkology by Prof Richard Wiseman
    The Dinner by Herman Koch

    February:

    Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton
    Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult

    March:

    Stranded by Emily Barr
    The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

    Tried reading Game of Thrones and abandoned it, as it was too close to the TV series, and I couldn't stay interested!

    I was a bit disappointed in The Storyteller. I thought there were some real plot contrivances in there (more than usual for her), and the ending was unrealistic.

    Couldn't get on with The Help either, as the way in which she wrote the accents in to the text irritated me too much.

    Now reading The Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes.

    Girl x, I didn't mind The Help. I thought it ended with a bit of a whimper.
    I've read all but the last chapter of This is how you lose her, and I'm pretty 'meh' on that one too.
    A bit of self help for me this month
    Next up- the last Sookie Stackhouse! I'm pretty excited.

    Soooo... Really enjoyed the first 3. The final Sookie Stackhouse would have to be up there with one of the most disappointing reads EVER. Gosh it was terrible. Boring- it read like an over long epilogue. Inconsistent- it's like she hasn't read her own books, and can't seem to remember the rules of her own created universe and terribly terribly disappointing. I will not spoil, but I'm sure if people haven't read it yet you've heard spoilers. Wow. Unbelievably lame. Some of my favourite characters barely featured, and some got really blardy raw deals. Anyway. That's my rant. Anyone else read it?

    Now reading Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy.

    I haven't read the Sookie Stackhouse books. Love the tv show, but couldn't get on with the first book when I tried it. I seem to struggle going from a TV show or movie to the book - prefer it the other way around.
