Finally finished The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It made a frightening amount of sense, and now I'm determined to read Atlas Shrugged before the movie trilogy is finished (even though Part 1 was apparently sh*t beyond belief).
I'm reading on two different books right now.
The Alchemist (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) by Michael Scott
The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks.
About halfway through The Lucky One, and so far its pretty good. Very classic Nicholas Sparks though (I.E: Guy who's been in the military and girl living in the south) but still pretty good so far.
And this is my second time reading The Alchemist, I'm rereading it before I start reading the next one in the series that I bought a couple months ago. They are pretty good also, but complicated if you aren't paying attention.
Ordered myself a whole load of books earlier, I find reading calming if I read before bed I dont tend 2 end up getting attacks. Plus I love real life medical ones so ordered 2 by the ambulance service and a GP one
Finished Sabbat Martyr by Dan Abnett. Pretty damn good, for a cheap, guts-n-glory sci-fi war novel. Very sad ending.
Currently reading the second-most influential and controversial book ever written (second only to the Bible), Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I loved The Fountainhead much more than I expected to, so I have high hopes for this book. It's well over 1000 pages long and weighs as much as a midsize car, so we'll see how long it takes to get through it.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
The Great Gatsby :)
Dear Nerdfighters, I have no idea how many of you there are out there, but if there are any- you, John, and Hank, have helped me through this and made me feel so much better. Thank you Nerdfighters, and thank you Vlogbrothers. I may not be 100% now, but I'm getting there, and you guys will be helping me along the way. You are so important, and as always; DFTBA :)

I'm reading the book thief (half way through and is getting a little draggy)
Red riding hood (havent seen the film but book isnt up to much)
and Grimms fairytales (love love love the grimms fairytales).
I'm reading other ones (my attention span is crap atm) but cant remember their names right now.

Just finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and moved onto The Girl Who Played With Fire.
Good book overall, but there were a few things that irritated me. Mainly that the main character, Mikael Blomkvist is kind of a Mary Sue. He just seems to be good at everything and every woman wants to sleep with him. Unrealistic!
And secondly (and maybe it's just because I'm a something of a tattoo snob), for being such an 'alternative' and 'different' person, Lisbeth Salander has the MOST STEREOTYPICAL TATTOOS EVER. A dragon, a rose, and a chinese kanji? Really? It's one of those details that makes you remember that the author was a middle aged man with limited understanding of what alternative subculture is really like.
But enough complaining. It's still a pretty good book.
Im reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte....out of choice too. I love the old classics. I recently finished Waterland, I havent a clue who its by but it was recommended by my english teacher. I throughly enjoyed it.
There's a little piece of heaven,
Right here where you are.
The fact that you keep trying
Is what sets you apart. Heaven (Little by Little) - Theory of a Deadman
we are the fallen
we are the wounded
we are the shattered
we are the unheard
we are the brave
we are the strong we are Survivors. and..... we are the future
we fallen can still rise by the wings of hope that lifts us~
