So yeah, I decided to start The Night Circus. What a trippy read! Each chapter skips between times and characters (even changing the point of the view to the reader at times). It's definitely a treat so far! Can't wait to see how everything and everyone ties together.

Let's see I finished 5 ot of the 6 Star Wars Republic Commando books (sadly the 6th and final book was cancelled) and I also started the Star Wars Legends series which I'm on the 4th book now. I'm currently on the Star Wars hype train for December so what better way to get more excited by reading the lore and Expanded Universe?

I'm sure once I see the new movie I'll go back to reading other stuff lmao.

Just read Magnus Chase the sword of summer by Rick Riordan, it was a pretty good read. I love mythology!

I'm busy reading the Odyssey by Homerus.

On the one hand, it's refreshing to read something that isn't pomo, frankfurt-school-inspired schlock.
On the other hand, GODDAMN is it hard to get through.

I'm currently into zombie and alien novels. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is a really interesting, realistic take on what would happen if aliens were to invade Earth in today's society.

I'm nearly done with it and it's fantastic.

I just finished the Wright Brothers by David McCullough. Amazing how to bike mechanics produced their airplane. Great story of hardwork and perseverance.

I just finished reading A Dollhouse to Die For by Cate Price. Pretty good read. I always enjoy a good mystery book! Now about to read Beach Girls by Luanne Rice = )

Did you hear they're making a movie adaptation of that?
The trailer looks okay but I'm bummed about it because they cast Chloe Moretz and her pig face to be in it.

Yeah, I'm planning on seeing it. And that's lame :| but hopefully the movie stays with the book, because the book was really great.

I'll be reading The Orphan Master's Son. It was highly recommended to me by a few friends of mine, and I'd like to read it in preparation for my trip to North Korea in the winter. It's weird to think that I'll have to delete my copy of it before my entry into the country, though... hopefully the book doesn't change my mind about this trip!

Currently reading Unjust A Memoir by Patricia Elspeth Burns
Its actually a book written by my friend's mom about the murder of her brother. I would recommend it especially if your interested in crime, justice, and Canada.
It makes me angry at times though. This was given to me after others had spoken about their unfair court rulings when dealing with crime coming from a victims perspective.
Anyway, Canada's justice system blows.

I just finished Every Day, and today I started another day. It's okay. The book kept my attention, it's just not one of my favourites.

02-04-2016, 08:56 AM
I started the Shadow Ops series by Myke Cole with his prequel, then i read the actual books afterwards. I like to do everything chronologically. Now i await for the second book of the prequels.

In a nutshell; Magic returns to the world and is used in warfare, if you come up Latent (manifesting in magic) then the government comes for you. Turning yourself in is a better option than running essentially. It's a nice action packed series, and i'm a sucker for anything to do with magic/fantasy lol.

02-06-2016, 06:00 PM
I am reading Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce

02-15-2016, 02:35 AM
I'm re-reading "Brightness Reef", the first book in David Brin's second Uplift trilogy. Absolutely fantastic series, and I'm especially fond of the blend of ancient galactic level tech and pseudo-steampunk level stuff. I'll finish off the trilogy when I'm done, "Infinity's Shore" and "Heaven's Reach". I'm kind of surprised that I have very little recollection of what happens. Oh well, I'm having a great time being alternately surprised an suddenly reminded.

Next after that I think I'll re-read "Changer" by Jane Lindskold, if I still have it. If not I might re-read "The Practice Effect" by David Brin.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

02-15-2016, 01:34 PM
I'm reading the Twilight series right now. I'm on the third book now, I'm also reading the second book of Every Day cslled "Another Day". It's by John Green and I honestly am not that big of a fan. I think the stories a bit too strange...

02-15-2016, 01:51 PM
I am currently reading Death at SeaWorld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity. I haven't gotten too far into the book. I started reading it a few weeks ago while I was trying to finish the Hunger Games series. Death at SeaWorld goes more in depth than the documentary Blackfish. :3

03-01-2016, 04:28 AM
The Governator by Ian Halperin, it's a book about Arnold Schwarzenegger..his early childhood, going to America and all the way to him becoming Governor of the State of California. I like reading about Arnold's insights and ways of thinking.

Just completed the Star War's Jedi Academy with my son. It was a pretty good read with him and funny at times.

03-02-2016, 11:53 PM
Just finished Hosseini's "The Kite Runner". I don't normally like required reading, but this is a novel that I think should be mandatory reading for every school in the States. It gives you a view of Afghanistan that you really can't get anywhere else, and it's willing to get into the nitty-gritty stuff without trying to gloss over it or avoid the subject entirely. It's just a great story about redemption, conflicting morals, and trying to overcome personal struggles that exists within the war-torn reality of Afghanistan. I do not have words to describe this novel. It's a fairly short read too, so I definitely recommend it. My class read it over the course of a month during our unit, but I probably could have finished this novel in roughly 2-3 hours.

Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Refreshing my memory so I can get to the third one I pre-ordered and haven't touched yet. I so can't wait for the movie. x3 Also, that one is my main focus, but I keep going back to The Complete Works of Franz Kafka every now and then, as has been the routine for a while now.

03-11-2016, 11:45 AM
Ritual Magic by Eileen Wilks. Its the 10th book of the series... not too sure how many are left

What book are you reading? It doesnt go into "what the hell is going" territory until the sixth book (or the fifth depending on your tolerance for stephen kings constant and very weird sexual descriptions).

raising steam by terry pratchett

08-04-2016, 04:43 PM
I just finished 'The Use of Weapons', a sci-fi novel by Iain M Banks. Interesting book with a great concept of two interwoven storylines, one going chronologically forward and the other going chronologically backwards. At the end there are two complementing climaxes that wrap things up in a satisfying manner.

I'd also recommend the book before it, 'The Player of Games', as it's got a storyline that keeps you hooked until the very end.

Reading a book called Javelin Rain, it's the sequel to Gemini Cell which together are prequels to the Shadow Ops books. Basically about how magic returned to the world, and then Shadow Ops is with magic in the modern world.

I'm rereading Gone With the Wind for about the fourth or fifth time now- but I did start a new book called memoirs of the Mausoleum: Gallows Humor it's the first book in a series and it's pretty awesome. Has a lot of gore, and a cool plot. Basically if a human dies in a haunted place the spirits of that place can resurrect them and they become these things called Revenants. It gives them crazy powers though so humans lock them away in the Mausoleum- it's like a prison designed to contain the Revenants. Humans conduct scientif research by having the Revenants battle to the Death. It's really interesting and the author- K. L. Somniate has a very cool writing style that keeps you interested. Can't wait to finish the book and start the next!
