Cross between Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie (as I decided I should read some Rushdie at some point) and The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes.

Really rnjoyinh both; you understand why they have such acclaim when you read then, but in very different ways.

Goddess of Spring by P.C. Cast. A retelling of the Persephone myth, which is just about my favourite myth ever.

Also re-reading Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix for the hundred-and-somethingth time.

The Fifty Year Sword by Mark Z Daneielewski - Just started it, but I'm really enjoying it. I love House of Leaves, so I'm fairly confident that I will love this one as well.

Just read 100 names by Cecilia Ahern, was really good, funny and heart warming although a little predictable.

I'm re-reading A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket).

rubik's cube 01-11-2012 09:32 PM

just finished reading january first.

now. i don't understand why, but if it wasn't for sleep, i'd have probably finished this in one session. this may not seem major, but i can't remember the last time i finished (or even almost finished) a book in one session.

it's not that i particularly enjoyed it. or maybe it's just been so long since i actually enjoyed a book i don't recognize it. it didn't put a smile on my face, anyway, but i don't think it's the type of book you should be smiling about.

one thing that bugged me was the fact the author's son could someday read this, and the author makes it pretty clear, imo, that he favors his daughter over his son. he basically says that because he can't find someone on his daughter's level, he'd create someone on her level - and there you have the reason behind the son. and it just disturbed me.

don't get me wrong. i have so much respect for this family, in the same way i have a stubborn sort of respect for my family for dealing with me. and i understood he loved his daughter, but his son's life was at risk. i think that's the time you need to sit back and think, "right. something needs to be done."

idk. it's not my position to judge.

but i would really like to read another book like it, if anyone has any suggestions. it was really interesting to read from the parent's pov.

and i'm now reading get me out of here. i'm too early on to give an opinion on it, but her husband's a sweetheart. and i get a weird vibe from dr padgett.

okay. i'll finish rambling now. xD

This one is where we first learn about Larry and Francey, and Mina :). This is only the second book of his that I've read (well, I'm reading this one now!), so I'm trying to get his others!
