I really liked the part with the nutritional value. It had some deep analysis on the meaning of life.

I've just read Path of the Warrior by Gav Thrope, and have just started with Path of the Seer in the same series :D

If you like Eldar from Warhammer 40k you should read these. it really gives you a good understanding of how life works in a craftworld.

I just recently read "Alice In Wonderland" the other day on my laptop. It took me a single afternoon to finish, but I loved the story and it is a classic. I plan to check out "Memoirs of a Geisha" from the library next time I go. Thought maybe a historical novel might be nice for a change.

Homer's The Iliad. It's hard goings, but it's absolutely fantastic.

On the light novel side, I've been reading Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai occasionally when I'm on trains or buses, it's pretty much the same as the anime really, a guilty pleasure.

Kind of inbetween right now. Was on a Star Wars kick there for a bit, got to the 27th chrono book of the series, which turns out to be Attack of the Clones, and kind of stalled. Been debating on downloading Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, since I really like Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. :)

Elizabeth Bennet is possibly my favourite female character in literature :D

"Mr Darcy said very little, and Mr. Hurst nothing at all. The former was divided between admiration of the brilliancy which exercise had given to her complexion, and doubt as to the occasion's justifying her coming so far alone. The latter was thinking only of his breakfast." xD Oh, Miss Austen you do amuse me!

Borgia by Michel Zevaco. It's a prequel of the tv series, so I decided to read it before watching the show ^^. Great book. Zevaco has a complex view of the Vatican and surprised me how well informed was he about some historical facts; even though it's a fictional story, most of the action is actually true, I feel like reading a biography rather than some fiction story. I gave Mr. Zevaco all my thanks for being so devoted when writing the book.

Love water by Venio Tachibana. Ah, it's a reread, I totally loved the book and if I had known Japanese, I would have bugged the author every day to make other books or mangas. I'm her no. 1 fan~.

Wow, how do you all manage to read more than one book at the same time? I don't think I could keep up with that! I am currently reading Immortal in Death by J.D. Robb, aka Nora Roberts. I'm only at chapter three or four, but it's already interesting to continue reading. I love the first two books so I'm pretty sure I won't be disappointed with this one.

The …in Death series of novels features New York City Police and Security Department Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke and is set in a mid-21st century New York City. The stories also regularly feature other characters, including Captain Ryan Feeney, Detective Delia Peabody, Detective Ian McNab and Dr. Charlotte Mira.

The series is ongoing and will go on as long as Roberts desires to write it; however, she has famously stated that the series will never contain one of Eve and Roarke's children, as the series will end with Eve's eventual pregnancy.

According to wikipedia, there are fifty-three books written so far with one on its way next year. I can't imagine how she can keep feeling motivated and inspired to continue writing about the same characters in so many books, so kudos to her.

Blue Spirit
09-24-2015, 12:01 PM
Well, if an author decides to not make the main characters start a family together after getting married doesn't mean the books themselves will be horrible or boring. It happens in real life as well, and who am I to judge someone for not getting engaged, married or have a child or more because it's the norm? Maybe she just doesn't want that with this book series, I don't know. I agree that it's strange, but as I mentioned in a different thread, I'm only on the third book of this series so far and things have progressed with the two main characters. Who knows though, it's possible that I may not enjoy them after a while, but until then, I will continue on reading them as long as possible and if I get a hold of the books. The book series is definitely different in that sense, and I don't think it's fair to judge the author's decision without giving it an honest chance. Do you?

Hmm... I wouldn't say it's quite as heavy as, say, the majority of Stephen King's stuff. None of the deaths are particularly gruesome, as far as I can remember. It's definitely more on the "creepy murder mystery" side of things, but considering it's from the view of the murderer himself, it obviously gets pretty dark. Even as an avid horror fan, some parts made me genuinely uneasy. (Although that's usually the sort of thing I look for in a good horror book, so)

If you're squeamish or easily creeped out, I wouldn't recommend it. But it's an absolutely amazing read if you can handle that sort of thing.

As a writer myself, this book is a goddamn trip to Spooksville so far. Being drugged and held captive by a full-on yandere fan that's forcing you to write your best book for her? No effin' thank you.

I finished Misery. Great stuff, as expected from Stephen King I guess. I got some new books, but I can't decide which to start first.

The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern.
Heart-Shaped Box, by Joe Hill.
After Dark, by Haruki Murakami.

I'll probably start Night Circus first, since it was recommended to me. I'm excited to read Murakami though.

The last book that I read: Here Lies Arthur by Philip Reeve
-I read the uncorrected proof, which was given to me so that I could write a review about it. It's a YA novel that's set during the time of King Arthur. We see everything through the eyes of a young girl who has been adopted by the bard Myrddin (Merlin). I've read several Arthurian novels & this was a refreshing take on the legend. It's more suited for a younger audience, though, probably 12-14 year olds.
