I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Sharpe's Tiger (Sharpe, #1) by Bernard Cornwell

Sharpe's Tiger - Bernard Cornwell

30/1 - I really enjoyed reading this book but found it quite different from the corresponding tv series.  The bits where we hear what Sharpe's thinking were in a tone completely different from what I thought he'd sound like after watching a couple of episodes (I own the dvd set, but haven't watched all of them yet).  He sounded a lot more immature and coarse than what Sean Bean does in the show.  I also found it hard to believe he was seriously considering deserting.  I thought that sounded completely out of character for him.  I really enjoyed the battle at the end and was happy to read about
