'I Am Number Four' by Pitticus Lore (I think that's how you spell his name anyway). It's interesting so far! x

OMG These are totally some of the best books I have EVER read. Absolutely love them.

Currently reading Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen for about the 5th time :)

The War Doctor 02-04-2011 03:11 AM

I've been reading so slowly lately. Watching Doctor Who online is taking up far too much of my time.

Anyway, I just finished The End of the Tether by Joseph Conrad. It drags a bit now and then, but it's still pretty great, and definitely needs to be read more than once. I won't spoil anything, but it has one of the greatest twists in the history or literature, in my opinion anyway.

Moving on, finally, to re-reading Junky by William S. Burroughs.

I'm just starting on Salem's Lot by Stephen King.

Ripped through Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut in Arizona last week, working on Big Sur by Jack Kerouac now.

Both pretty good.

Half way through blueeyedboy by Joanne Harris. Its interesting so far.

20 fragments of a ravenous youth- Xiaolu Guo

Dreaming. 04-04-2011 12:21 AM

Finished When We Were Orphans. I really liked it, I thought it was a really beautifully written book. Have been reading I Was Bono's Doppleganger alongside it, which is ace. I totally wouldn't normally read something like that, but I'm really liking it, and it's so funny.

The Colour Purple by Alice Walker.

I don't honestly know why I'm doing it to myself. It's so so triggering and I'm really not enjoying the way it's written. But it's one of those books that people always tell you to read, and think slightly less of you if you haven't.

On to some chick lit next though. Treating myself ;)

just finished Evermore and now starting Blue moon...

liked Evermore... not as well as he twilight or house of night books, but then again i'm kinda a nerd when it comes to those books... :)

I am reading Blow Fly by Patricia Cornwell, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams and The House at Riverton by Kate Norton.

The War Doctor 05-04-2011 03:40 PM

I'm still reading too damn slowly for my liking, but I just finished Junky by William S. Burroughs.

Moving on to The Castle by Franz Kafka. I've read a few of his short stories and loved them all (to the point that Kafka has become one of my biggest influences), but I've never read any of his novels.

I really liked Kafka's short stories,especially 'The metamorphosis' and 'The hunger artist'.I found them triggering though (I'm very easily triggered),maybe because I knew Kafka probably had an eating disorder.But they are very beautifully well-written and his emotions & feelings just burst out.
On another note,we seem to have similar readings :).
