Currently reading Brass Ring by Diane Chamberlain it's really really good, if you like Jodi Picoult this is a book for you, but just be aware there are some abuse triggers in it.

Reading The Night Watch by Sarah Waters. It's interesting and well written but slightly slow going.

I'm reading comics, as usual. (My PhD is on comics)
Currently, I'm reading Grant Morrison's 'Arkham Asylum' one-shot. It's not bad!

At the moment I am reading "Twiligh"t in English [I have already read it in German a few years ago].

Before that I read "Die Schmetterlingsinsel" by Corina Bomann.
I really loved that one and can only recommend it.

I'm almost done with Carlton Mellick III's 'Satan Burger'. It's a fantastic read. He's so bizzare, guess that's where the 'bizzaro genre' comes from.. But hilarious, not just random weird **** that makes no sense... It's science fiction-y, with some philosophical content as well.

But the plot basically.. is that God has turned his back on the world, heaven and hell are closed, and Satan has moved to Earth to open a burger shop in an effort to collect people's souls and therefore stay alive. The main characters are a bunch of skinheads and gutterpunks that still have their souls, unlike most of the human population remaining on Earth, who are wandering about practically undead, bored with life but still living.

Anyway, it's great. :D

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

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

^ 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.

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?
