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

Today I started to read Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke.

The War Doctor 15-08-2012 09:10 PM

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.

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.

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

Just finished On Beauty - Zadie Smith, not as good as White Teeth but still liked it.
Started Poppy Shakespeare - Clare Allen today, seen the tv version so thought I'd read the book.

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

After this some more Amélie Nothomb methinks.

I'm reading War of the Worlds at the mo.
Seem to be on a bit of a Sci Fi/Fantasy theme lately.
