Just started "The Farthest Shore" by Ursula K. Le Guin, just finished "The Shelters of Stone" by Jean M. Auel.
Just started reading "The Lorien Legacies" curious what will happen next after watching "I am number four".
Here are the books/ series That i like:
- Hunger Games Trilogy (a year ago)
- Divergent (waiting for Insurgent to be out on May)
- I am Number Four
- Fault In Our Stars
About to start Michael Crichton's signature novel, Jurassic Park. I remember renting it in a library some 4 years ago and reading it then, but it's always nice to refresh my memory after so long.
Atonement by Ian McEwan.
Not pretty far into it yet but I saw the movie...
Want to read the girl with the dragon tattoo afterwards.
Reading Spellwright by Blake Charlton, amazing fantasy books where words are literally the Magic, where sentences have magical capabilities and the protagonist is Dyslexic meaning he cant do magic without fucking things up. Unique magic system
Kokoro By Natsume Souseki.
Kawaii in the streets, senpai in the sheets.
Minimal Posting (tired of infractions. If you need something use skype or PM me).
just finished "Liar (in original: Kłamca) 4, Kill 'em all" by Jakub Ćwiek - good stuff, angelic fantasy, violence, sex, gore, Apocalypse, elves, pop-cultural references, teddy bear - motive with teddy bear was kinda sad actually (my own teddy bear, coincidentally named Loki, surely feels sad about it too), especially since the teddy is with us from the vol. 1.
Star By Star, just as gory as I remember it being ten years ago.
Also, A Tale of Sand, a graphic novel of an old, reject screenplay written by Jim Henson. It's quite surreal, and the imagery's interesting, but I can see why no one wanted to turn it into a movie.
~Stargazer~, an original story.

I began to read Harry Potter again. Just love it.
Had to read A Scandal in Bohemia for my English class recently and I got that tingling in the back of my neck that says I am about to get obsessed with something for a few months. In a couple of days I'll go to Barnes and Noble and pick up the complete stories of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and there will be no stopping me. On top of that I am in love with the BBC series at the moment and am making my way threw the second series as we speak(check the avatar).
Just finished reading "Marcelo In the Real World." Suuuuupppaaaa good book. A must read. It's about a high functioning autistic boy working in a law office over the summer. Surprisingly adult, but also childlike. It really is a child stepping into the real world. Reminds me a lot of when I got my first job. Seriously, read this book. Two others I read recently are "Looking For Alaska" and "The Fault In Our Stars." Both by John Green. Stars is crazy good book. Better than Marcelo even. It's about cancer from a cancer patients perspective. Very eye opening. Very funny a well. And very sad. "I'm on a roller coaster that only goes up, my friend." That's a quote from one of the characters. I love it. The other John Green book, "Looking for Alaska," is his first published novel. It's not that good, but somewhat nostalgic for me. Very reminiscent of my year at arts high school. The characters are likable but also not likable. But really the book is sub par. Anyways. I definitely suggest "Marcelo In the Real World" and "The Fault In Our Stars." Also, John Green has many fantastic YouTube videos.
Re-read "John Dies at the End" again. god, I love this book so much. Probably gonna finish A Clash of Kings and then jump head first into A Storm of Swords
If you are gonna shoot, shoot. Don't talk

Recently finished Kafka on the Shore, and about two-thirds through 1Q84 now...
Genes, Peoples and Languages by Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
The Absolute Sandman by Neil Gaiman
Since I'm finally out of school I have the time to read all the stuff I'm interested in.
sort of skimming through The Elephant Vanishes
also reading some poetry by Orlovsky and Lawrence
Just finished A Feast For Crows this morning. Everything was more slow paced, compared to the craziness that was A Storm of Swords, but all in all, an enjoyable read.
Starting to Guns, Germs, and Steel now.
