I watched a speech she did on Youtube a few weeks ago, really smart woman! I must get the book to have a read, might explain why I'm so introverted by nature.[/quote]

She's been interviewed a lot lately, and she did a talk for TED, which might have been what you saw, Remus? And the book is a very good and interesting read, I think a lot of things like my tendency to go out of the room if I'm ever at a party are now because I have a natural predisposition to introversion, whereas before I just saw it as a personality quirk. Plus it's not easy to understand yourself if you're often in situations where people are very talkative, is it?

I recently finished reading Falling Fast by Sophie McKenzie. It's a love story bassed around Romeo and Juliet.
Has anyone else read it? It's very good. :) :D

I'm currently reading The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Macker
It's really good. :) It's about two high school students in 1996 who find their future profiles on facebook. I recommend it. :D

The last book I read on my Kindle was "Broken Silence" by Danielle James. It's a murder mystery/police procedural novel and I enjoyed it-there was a great twist at the end! I have downloaded her other book too, "Vanishing Point", which is a similar theme.

You should read it, it's quite a cheap book compared to the rest due to it being a World Book Day book and personally, I really enjoyed it. :) It was the first Darren Shan book I read and I wasn't keen on horror books at the time so it very much acted as a sort of starter book for me.

I'm currently reading a book called Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson. It's a book about a woman who is an amnesiac and every morning she wakes up, she loses all her memories of her past as she is 47 but often wakes up thinking, she is still a young adult or even times when she's a child. It's a thriller and I'm honestly gripped to it at the moment, it's such an exciting plot. I must have admit, it can be a little repetitive at times but what can you expect from someone who loses their memories! I cannot wait to finish it and see what twists it has in store. I certainly recommend check it out, apparently they are also doing a film adaptation with Nicole Kidman playing the main role. :D

I am reading "The Book of Souls" by James Oswald at the moment. It is very well written and very gripping-the sort of book that gets you so immersed in all the apprehension that any outside noise makes you jump! I read his other book, "Natural Causes", which is free on the Kindle, on holiday. That was also very good but I get the impression that he has an interest in demonic possession as both of these books centre around murder as a ritual sacrifice to a demon. Not a light read at all but both of these are fantastically written.
