The To-Read Pile.

1. Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult. (Currently reading)
A book that I got at a charity shop, and so far it's pretty good. Up to scratch with the other Jodi Picoluit books that I've read.
-This book isn't as good as The Pact, or My Sister's Keeper. But it's definitely worth a read if you enjoy Jodi Picoult. Although I still think her best book is Second Glance. Probably a 3 or 4 out of 5. Also, it might be a tear-jerker for some people.

2. I Am Number Four by Pitticus Lore.
After seeing the film, I decided, as books are better (you know, in general) so I've got high hopes for this one!

3. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
Now i've had this in my reading pile for a while. Since early May, in fact. But I really wanted to read it when I got back to Uni. And so soon there will be a chance to do so. And as it's a classic story I like, I'm hoping I can get through the masses of small pages.

4. Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
I was given this by my sister to read, as she loves Carlos Ruiz Zafon. This being the smallest of his books that she owns, she has lent to me to read.
- On reading this book I  would say that it is amazing. Definitely a 5/5. For a childrens story it's actually quite scary, much like Markus Zusak's The Book Thief. But it is amazing, with beautiful characters and themes. Please read it.

5. Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett.
My boyfriend lent this one to me a while ago. I have actually started it, and then promptly forgot I was reading it and stated reading other good books.
- I have now read this book and would give it 4/5. Very entertaining, as always with Mr. Pratchett, but also as always, a little difficult to read at times.

I will most definitely be looking forward to reading this batch :)
