Come, forum bookworms. Impress (or amuse XD) us with what you currently can't put down.

Myself, I'm a major true crime fan. I just finished You'll Never Find My Body by Don Lasseter, and jumped straight to Ann Rule's But I Trusted You. While I generally prefer books written either by or with heavy influence from prosecution/defense, Ann Rule provides a heavily sympathetic voice to her books which pulls at the heartstrings.

I am currently reading a few books.
1.) The Lake House by James Patterson
2.) MAX by James Patterson(BTW, does anybody know when the next book is coming out??)
3.) The Key to Rondo by well, I forgot the author.
But ya, that's what I'm reading. ^.^

Currently, I'm reading Legends(which is a big compilation of a bunch of authors like King, Goodkind, Pratchett, R.R. Martin, etc). So far, I love all the stories. They are great novella length stories that are just long enough to intrigue but not too long to the point where you are wishing you could just get to the next author(Actually the King story was somewhat like this, but overall I enjoyed it). After that, I'm thinking of reading Terry Brook's Armageddon's Children because I have always loved his works. Hard to fit in reading in between all my own writing and revising though. :<_<:

Im reading The Outsiders by SE Hinton.
Its a good book, but for the reading level I'm at, I think it's a little to simple.
But, since I'm only in eighth grade, and have an entire literacy paper due in a month on the book, (That and Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson . (I have to compare the books,, and choose a thesis.) I have no clue what i should choose.
I just thought i should share that with everryone :3

I read a lot of short manga series [like a volume or two] because I don't have to spend 2 years just to read it all *coughnarutocough*

So I really don't feel like listing it all, the only manga I've been keeping up with is Air Gear, Loveless, Junjou Romantica, and Zombie Loan, and I'm catching up on D.Gray-Man.

There is a whole bunch of manga I'm planning on reading really soon. Dogs: Bullets and Carnage being one of them, I've been seeing more and more of it lately, so I've been wanting to read it, I just never have yet!

I just finished The King's Secret Matter by Jean Plaidy, and picked up another by her called Murder Most Royal. Both are about various wives of King Henry VIII. It's unashamedly a little known passion of mine ^^

I too have a tendency to read multiple books at once. These days I'm not so terrible, and usually stick to one book supplemented by books I'm inspired to re-read (often one of my many Lang fairytale compilations).

Books I am currently reading, instead of my lecture notes (Which I SHOULD be):

1. Skeleton Crew, by Stephen King
2. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov (English translation)
3. Vengeance in Death by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts)

All mystery and suspense, or something along those lines. I don't see the point in reading tear-jerkers all the time. Bodice-rippers, yes, I'll read.

I have got it now, and am reading it. Kinda reminds me what the world would be like if everything was regulated. Bah. As for Margaret Atwood, her books are what I would think of as literature class material...

[Stephen King goes to the movies] - Stephen King
[Misery] - Stephen King
[Naked in Death] - J.D. Robb
and, of course [Nineteen Eighty-Four] - George Orwell

Penny Arcade 2: Epic Legends of the Magic Sword Kings.
If you're a serious gamer (particularly if you've been gaming for over a decade), these books are all very nostalgic and feature some of the best web comic humour available.

If not, you mightn't get half the references and they'll probably leave you unsatisfied.

Re-reading the Calvin and Hobbes comics.
And All You Need is Kill.

My husband gave me the entire Calvin & Hobbes collection (in three large hardcover books) a couple of years ago. I LOVE it. I grew up with the strip, and had several of the paperback collections over the years which I must have read dozens of times apiece. I've been through all three volumes a handful of times already. What brilliant writing and illustrations.

10th Anniversary by James Patterson -- the latest addition to his series The Women's Murder Club. Excellent series and I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense / mystery books. Not to mention James Patterson is, in my opinion, a master at not only storytelling, but keeping the reader engaged in his work as well.
