The War Doctor 03-06-2011 02:39 PM

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).

Currently reading Sabbat Martyr by Dan Abnett.

I'm reading Dead Beautiful. I can't get enough of supernatural books. Next I'm going to read Darren Shan's Ocean of Blood. His books are always good.

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

Confessions of a GP - Benjamin Daniels.

^^Waiting for that to come

Recieved NeeNaw life on an ambulance control dispatcher.

Reading Yes sister No sister at the moment-I am hooked on it, Life being a nurse back then seemed interesting and hard work.

I'm reading 'Codependent No More' by Melody Beattie

The War Doctor 08-06-2011 05:02 PM

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.

It's Your Time You're Wasting - Frank Chalk.

Finished reading The Grapes of Wrath, which took a while to get into but the characters developed well and the story was intense. Now reading Watchmen, which so far is waaay superior to the film.

I finished this a few weeks ago and it's absolutely incredible, probably my favourite book!

I'm rereading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix once again :D

Just finished The Posion Garden by Sarah Singleton, starting Tithe by Holly Black now.

simka 13-06-2011 06:45 PM

just finished reading a book called Feed last night, not your average zombie book, very interesting and chock full of adventure and some scary moments.. there's a conspiracy too...

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.
