    I haven't watched any of the Movies so I don't know whether the books are exactly the same as the movie or have little in common. I personally enjoyed the book. I was hooked to it in many occasions throughout it, though it certainly doesn't mind swearing or having sexual content in every chapter(or at least, most of them.).

    All throughout it was a good book though. It'll take a while to finish depending on how fast of a reader you are but it's not a bad book. It was mysterious, romantic (my favorite! XP), and quite dramatic and action at times. If you don't mind reading something you already know, I'd tell you to give it a go.

    So, I finished Rivers of London by Ben Aaronvitch a few days ago.

    It was good. I plan on reading the sequel.

    Not sure how many other people here will have read it, but I'll share my thoughts about my most recent read: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

    It's...hmm. It's a funny one. It's a good read, or it must have been because it kept my attention to the end. But about 3/4 of the way through, the plot becomes very contrived. The idea behind the novel is that the reader is tricked into thinking they're reading a true historic tale. It worked for a while on me, but then I began to notice that parts of the plot were just...too convenient. Characters started becoming unbelievable and that's when I began to question its legitimacy. But it's written pretty well! Definitely won't be going on my top 10 books anytime soon, though.

    I am actually currently reading Death Note Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases, which is about L's case before the Kira investigation. I also am up to date with the Chronicles of Nick, which is about a kid who learns he is the son of the most powerful demon alive and he has to control his powers before they destroy the world.

    Just finished a re-read of 'The Help.' Really fond of that book. The pie scene will forever amuse me.

    Started reading Jonas Jonasson's "The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared" until a trip up a mountain in a storm reduced by copy to a sponge. A shame really, I was enjoying it.

    Prior to that I was reading Jule's Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" and "Silence" by Shusaku Endo. Victorian undersea sci-fi adventure and the tale of a Spanish Catholic priest's dangerous journey into sakoku era Japan; where foreigners and Christianity are outlawed. Both are worth a read.

    Although busy I still spend 30 minutes to read books every day. They bring a lot of interesting things

    Finished reading the first book in the Raystone series by Claire Gristwood.

    I bought a secondhand Kindle so that I could read during my lunch break, but haven't used it lately. Need to get back into that!
