Loved Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children! Recently downloaded The Night Circus so I shall let you know what I thought of that! Desperate to read The Hunting Ground.

Mt top two fiction books were The Well by Peter Labrow and Outpost by Adam Baker... loads of favourite non-fiction arty books.

Thanks Carmen, Need to check out them two books. I have not heard of them and they sound interesting. Might give one of them a try. I have a spare copy of a book you might want to review for me. Give me a tweet or something and I will let you know what book it is,you may not be your thing?
