I'm currently reading
Standing in Another Man's Grave
by Ian Rankin.
The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
I'm finding it gritty, realistic and heart breaking.
I finished this book on 1/1/1013. I found it absolutely heart breaking when two of the main characters died. This book touched my heart very deeply and I don't think I will forget it in a long time. I thought it was brilliant. 5 stars from me.
