    I haven't read a book in a very very long time.

    Can someone please recommend me something newish, and spectacular. One of those can't put it down or stop thinking about it long after you've finished reading it type books. I'd like to get my passion for reading back.

    If you had to choose ONE of those as your favourite of the bunch which would it be?

    Oh that's HARD! Burial Rites is probably my favourite but I think if you haven't read anything for a good while then I'd go with Still Alice. It's so moving and I read it in a day because I couldn't put it down.

    You've inspired me to read Burial Rites. I've had it on my iPad forever and ever and have been so uninspired.
    I did read the Rosie project and thought it was an easy read.
