That book made me scared of my own house.

I am re-reading Blood Meridian because even ugly things can be beautiful.

The Last Man by Mary Shelley for my Romanticism module.

ElecTrickCity 17-12-2013 10:02 PM

I'm reading 'why we broke up' by Daniel Handler. Interesting book, about halfway through, unsure how its going to end if I'm honest.

nowhereman 20-12-2013 09:40 PM

Horizon by Alyson Noel, the last of the soul seekers series.

Same! And nice use of color :)

As I am incapable of reading only one book at once, I'm also currently reading Divine Misfortune by A. Lee Martinez

Derio 22-12-2013 01:36 AM

I finished Earth unaware by Orson Scott card about a month ago, it wasn’t very good and I’ve not read a book since.

michelo tomato 23-12-2013 08:09 PM

Last week I went to the library and read a couple of books.

The Bible Code - by Micheal Drosin.


I came to the conclusion that God is a Jewish New Yorker.

Angels 101

About guardian angels. I am white and went to a Jewish School so beware my wrath LOL

Palladion 23-12-2013 09:22 PM

I'm halfway through A Study in Scarlet, the first novel in the Sherlock Holmes series. I'm really enjoying it, i'm glad my friend recommended it to me.

"mefisto in onyx"
"the man who drew cats"
"norman wisdom and the angel of death"
"the temptation of dr stein"

theyre very good short horror stories

nowhereman 24-12-2013 01:42 PM

The Hobbit.

eventually 28-12-2013 09:45 AM

Im reading the first book in the Heroes of Olympus series, The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan!

Palladion 29-12-2013 07:20 AM

Going Bovine by Libba Bray. Might be one of the weirdest books I have ever read but i'm really enjoying it so far!

Good book, better than the LotR series but LotR gets all the press because its a bigger more epic tale.

I just started reading Metro 2033.


nowhereman 29-12-2013 10:41 PM

Queenie by Jacqueline Wilson.

melissafaith 30-12-2013 10:27 PM

Just finished the newest Pendergast book by Lincoln and Child, White Fire. It was good, but not the best of the series. I'm hoping the next one centers more on Pendergast as he is what elevates the books above other mystery/thrillers I've read.

nowhereman 02-01-2014 11:28 PM

Geek Girl by Holly Smale. (Yes I do like children's book if you haven't noticed)

Rafiki 03-01-2014 12:29 AM

Diane Chamberlain, Keeper of the light.

Indigo. 03-01-2014 12:48 AM

The Colour Of Magic by Terry Pratchett, it's the first book published in the Discworld series, I find it quite interesting :)

mijendra22 03-01-2014 09:57 AM

I learned a long time ago the wisest thing i can do is be on my own side and have a read to a lot of books. These days i am reading Art of War written by R.B.E.Beals.

Benjibum 03-01-2014 11:34 PM

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. It's pretty good so far.

Tig 06-01-2014 02:14 PM

The Color War ~ Jodi Picoult.

I never heard of it, is it new? *goes to check it out on goodreads*

nowhereman 11-01-2014 08:28 PM

I've now read The Color War by Jodi Picoult, and just started Id tell you I love you but I'd have to kill you by Ally Carter.

Puppet Strings 14-01-2014 11:45 PM

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.

Surprisingly, I've never read it before.
I'm really enjoying it.

talaiporia 14-01-2014 11:46 PM

Oooh, that's an awesome book! Good plot twists!

Serendipity. 16-01-2014 08:46 PM

That book makes me cry!

I'm reading 'A Perfectly Good Man' by Patrick Gale. Love his books!

PeachyK 19-01-2014 08:32 PM

I haven't read books in years, until I got a book for Christmas and read through it in a few days. It could possibly be triggering, but its called "Walking on Eggshells" by Lyssa Chapman. Kind of an autobiography, but at the same time not really. It's non-fiction, and completely about her life, but she talks about her upbringing and drug addictions, being a teen mom, all other kinds of stuff. It's a good read!

Might be a little too "simple" to read depending on whether you like challenging books or just an easy read. I usually like challenging books, but this was good for me.

Palladion 21-01-2014 04:39 AM

I just finished reading The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I really liked it! Now i'm starting Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Very interesting so far.

-------------------- 21-01-2014 12:35 PM

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them by Newt Scamander (JK Rowling) :p

Eccentrics 27-01-2014 02:16 PM

Just started 'The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-time'

The War Doctor 27-01-2014 02:58 PM

Today I finished Doctor Who: The Witch Hunters by Stephen Cole, which was about the Salem Witch Trials. Almost immediately after getting home I ordered two new books; another Doctor Who book and a non-fiction book about the Witch Trials.

Now I'm debating whether to re-read Bret Hart's autobiography or read Going Postal by Terry Pratchett.

zombiehunter 27-01-2014 05:45 PM

American psycho by Brett Easton Ellis and also the dark knight strikes again graphic novel

Rodolphus 30-01-2014 01:10 PM

I started reading Deception Point by Dan Brown again last night.
I know a lot of literature elitists who hate Dan Brown, but his books grab me and keep me interested right through, which is rare for me at the moment.
I've only read it once, I can't remember much about it. I must have read Angels and Demons about 8 times.

Kittyenna 12-02-2014 05:01 PM

Re-reading Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight

Is one of my favourites :)

zombiehunter 12-02-2014 05:11 PM

Book five of a song of ice and fire by George RR Martin

The War Doctor 15-02-2014 10:54 AM

Earlier this week I finished reading HITMAN: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Professional Wrestling by Bret Hart, which is one of my favourite books of all time. Now I'm about halfway through Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett.

zombiehunter 18-02-2014 02:45 PM

Finally got round to finishing the dark knight strikes again graphic novel and I'm more than halfway through vol1 of the death note manga, never read a manga before but I figured since I loved the death note movies and anime I'd give it a shot

wi-nter 19-02-2014 07:13 PM

I started 'Crank' today by Ellen Hopkins which is amazing so far. I loved the writing style it's so different than anything I have read so far.
Before that I read 'Allegiant' by Veronica Roth which was a little disappointing??

The War Doctor 19-02-2014 08:23 PM

Today I finished Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett. It wasn't as laugh-out-loud funny as some of his other books, but still brilliant. It's amazing how he can make the invention of the steam engine seem like the birth of an all-powerful, benevolent god.

Tomorrow I'm going to start reading A Delusion Of Satan by Frances Hill, it's apparently one of the better accounts of the Salem Witch Trials, a subject which has been of great interest to me recently. I'm looking forward to reading it.

nowhereman 20-02-2014 12:02 AM

I've been on holiday and did a lot of reading, but not gonna name them all. At the moment I am reading By the Time You Read This I Will be Dead by Julie Anne Peters.

Serendipity. 21-02-2014 11:58 PM

I've just started 'I Capture the Castle' by Dodie Smith. It's alright, though a little disappointing after all the good things I've heard about it - but I'm not very far into it, so hopefully it will grow on me!

susieannah 22-02-2014 06:56 AM

Potatoes Not Prozac by Kathleen DesMaisons.

It's quite interesting so far.

Severus Snape 26-02-2014 06:01 AM

I'm reading the manga: Naoki Urasawa's Monster
I finished volume 1 and within 20 pages or so, I was hooked!

I'm also reading The Magician: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
It's an extension on a story about an immortal wizard from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I've been engrossed in the Harry Potter world since the first book came out and this is a great read to add to it.

Still looking for dystopian novels that I haven't read yet.

How are you taking to it?

MissGranger 26-02-2014 10:38 AM

I am reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

I'm struggling to get into it, it's a bit strange but I think it will get better!

I never realised there were more Harry Potter related books, the one about Nicholas Flamel sounds like a good one to read next what's it like?

Too Shy 26-02-2014 10:56 AM

I am reading Confessions of a Male Nurse.

It's interesting, I like books like this. Could do with a nice fiction book to read afterwards though.

MissGranger 26-02-2014 11:00 AM

That sounds really interesting!

-------------------- 26-02-2014 12:48 PM

I'm reading three books currently;

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Where Are The Children by Mary Higgins Clark.

Really getting into where are the children.
