    I've found that he's very good at writing characters who are like himself. Which isn't a bad thing, but it makes him repetitive

    Yeah i did find Colin to be very much like Q and also like Miles in the way they act etc.




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

    I've been reading the David Raker collection by Tim Weaver. He's just realeased the 4th book in the series, so going to start on that soon. Would thoroughly recommend them.

    After putting it off for several years I've finally started on 50 Shades of Grey. I'm about 6 pages in & already think it's sh*t.

    The book is pretty different to the film. I also didn't rate the film much but I loved the book. (and the others in the series too) If you plan to read them all, read The Infernal Devices series before you read City of Heavenly Fire (the last in TMI series)

    Finishing of A Series of Unfortunate Events (again) because for the life of me I can't remember what happens in The End, bar the last chapter. I started some time last year and have been reading them in between other books, whenever I've wanted a break from books that require concentration. Halfway through The End, now. After that I've got loads of books I got free through Goodreads that I really need to get around to reading.

    I started reading Warm Bodies this morning. Got half way through before I had to go out. But so far it's pretty good, and surprisingly deep, with some sad moments (but that might be 'cos I'm very empathetic with fictional characters). I kinda thought it would be really funny due to the adverts I'd seen of the movie version. I haven't seen the movie, but it has the movie cover. (I'll get the DVD after I've read it me thinks.)
