    I liked it. It's a pretty light read. I like the weirdness of the main male character. There were definitely moments when I laughed out loud.

    @Cheerilee The Rosie Project was great! And so is the follow up book, The Rosie Effect. The main character so reminds me of Sheldon from Big Bang Theory...

    On another series, are there any Game of Thrones fans here? If so, has anyone read the prequels? I read an article the other day that the next book in the series is still at least a year away so I thought I might have a crack at the prequels to see if they were any good. Would love any feedback.

    My people! I've found you! I love love love reading - would love to read more paper books but sadly most things I read these days are on iBooks or kindle. Better that than nothing, right? my favourite genres include chick lit, murder mysteries, country romances, and biographies (particularly of people who have survived awful things).

    Currently reading The Road To Hope by Rachael Johns which is a country romance. I loved Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and consequently bought other books by her but I've been disappointed by the others. I also love the Temperance Brennan series by Kathy Reichs
