Speaking of GCSE English I must get round to re-reading To Kill A Mocking Bird, we did that one too - loved it
Ooh, that's my absolute favourite book! It's so great; I get something different out of it every time (and the film's good

I've just finished Naughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. I cried soooo much.
Yeah, I liked that. And the ending's so sad.

Also, I read A Little Love Song by Michelle Magorian for the umpteenth time yesterday - that is a lovely, gorgeous book, like chick lit only it makes you think at the same time. (And it's set in 1943. So there's the historical thing again!)
I agree, it's really good.
All her books that I've read are actually...

I'm reading Birdsong by sebastian Faulks
It's a great book
It is great - I read it when we were doing the WW1 in history, and then again when we went on a school trip to the battlefields which was really interesting.
I'm reading A Room With A View by E.M. Forster, Goodbye To All That, by Robert Graves (his autobiography) and working my way through Hamlet and King Lear which we're doing in Advanced Higher English. A few weeks ago our teacher asked everyone what they were reading at the time and everyone in the class was reading some great and difficult book... except me (I was reading, um, Sophie Kinsella's 'The Undomestic Goddess'!) It was a little embarassing
It's great to be finished exams and have time to read without thinking "I should be revising".
