New moon - Stephanie Meyer

Oh dear, I'm addicted. This was the second in the teenage vampire series. It was fine, a bit simplistic, although the finish was pretty dramatic. Not enough vampire and a bit too much werewolf in this one. Let's hope Kim lends me book number 3 soon.

Private Members - Leone Fox

I'm not reading as much as I should so I need to list every book I can. This was hilarious, but I spent all the time on the train worrying people were going to read it over my shoulder.


A perfectly good family - Lionel Shriver

Picked this up on the way back from Colorado. It's no 'we need to talk about kevin', but it's a good study of three siblings who inherit their parents' house. The two brothers each ally with the middle daughter who is torn between the two. A really interesting character study, a bit depressing in places, but overall thought provoking about family and friendships.

The Glittering Prizes by Frederic Raphael

I remembered this book because it was brought out as a TV series some time ago. It's about a group of people who leave Cambridge in the 50s. A quick easy read, but I suspect better as a drama than a novel.
