At the moment I'm reading "As I Wake" by Elizabeth Scott. But I just finished "Memoirs of a Teenage Amsesiac" by Gabrielle Zevin. Also I recently read "Partial" by Dan Wells (it is amazing and I love it)

Sorry if I was only supposed to post one O_O

Another ballet book called Audition by Stasia Ward Kehoe.

Crazycatlady 12-08-2012 06:15 PM

I bought a kindle a couple of weeks ago and I can't put it down, I'm on my 4th book on there already and I'm a slow reader normally lol.

I read a book called Zombie Fallout, which is about... well, zombies lol. Its a good one though, I've read some zombie books which I thought were rubbish.
Next I read an idiot abroad, because it was 20p on kindle store and I loved the series :P
My favourite that I've read so far on there is 'a street cat named bob'. Its about how a guy and cat found each other, literally saved each other's lives. Its an amazing read, especially if you're a crazy cat lady like me lol.
I'm now reading 11.22.63 (although I keep wanting to call it 22.11.63 lol) by Stephen King, up to chapter 2, so far so good :D

I'm currently reading Frankenstein for AP english, and it's actually pretty good! I'm gonna sound like a total dork for saying this, but there are tons of cool literary devices Mary Shelley uses in there! :P

Sketchy 12-08-2012 09:21 PM

^ I bought Frankenstein ages ago but it's still sitting on my book shelf with a pile of books I've still to read. I may eventually start it.

Tonight I bought Once Upon a Nightwish (Nightwish biography) I will start that next.

melodypond 13-08-2012 04:18 AM

I'm reading "Liar" by Justine larbalestier. Very interesting. A young adult murderer mystery from the point of view of a teenaged pathological liar. But she swears she's telling us all the truth surrounding her boyfriends death. So its very interesting to read and see just what you believe. Who knows if the entire murder is made up?

Literally bought and started reading this yesterday, I'm really enjoying it :)
I love the way she wrote.

makedamnsure 13-08-2012 12:19 PM

I liked Frankenstein but the writing was occasionally a bit too flowery for me.
I've been reading lots lately. Read i know why the caged bird sings, Sherlock holmes, jungle book, and most recently started game of thrones which I'm enjoying much more than I expected!

Happyhead 13-08-2012 08:51 PM

Currently reading Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky with thanks to the videogame Metro 2033 which made me aware of this book. Post apocaalyptic Moscow where the survivors all live in the Moscow Metro due to a nuclear winter being up top

I'm about halfway through A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin, and I've also started reading Batman Unauthorised. It's a collection of essays about various things related to Batman, and it's actually very interesting.

happywondering 23-08-2012 11:03 AM

I'm now on the fifh book of A Song of Ice and Fire, A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin. The biggest problem with reading the books is to not actually say too much to the people who have only watched the tv program.

lildarkone 23-08-2012 11:49 AM

Right now I'm rereading Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins as well as The Descent by Jeff Long

Her prose is just gorgeous, isn't it?!

Just finished Love Virtually - Daniel Glattauer

Really enjoyed it, finished in a couple of days, but was annoyed by the ending, as i wanted to know more. ha.

Eccentrics 12-09-2012 08:49 PM

Just finished The Hunger Games. (I'm a bit slow on the hype!)

It was really good and held me like glue, but I'm not sure if it was worth all the complete obsession over it. I hate it when fans of a fandom plaster their fan-ness everywhere, especially where it's not needed :(

On to the next book now

PaleMoon 13-09-2012 04:15 AM
