06-23-2010, 08:48 PM
Dead Man Walking by Sister Helen Prejean.
Read it for school, so didn't like it. She jumps a lot in the book. It also bothered me that we had to read in school even though it had bible stuff in it.

06-23-2010, 09:27 PM
I just read "Lives of the Saints" by Nino Ricci for school. It was pretty good, the plot wasn't that great in my opinion but the writing was amazing.

06-23-2010, 09:34 PM
I just finished reading "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov. Part of my summer reading list I put together.

06-23-2010, 09:44 PM

09-04-2010, 07:31 AM
1984 George Orwell was really good.
The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya was slow at first, but ended good.
The Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya is really good.I'm on the last chapter of it.

09-06-2010, 10:40 PM
The Concubine's Daughter, by Pai Kit Fai - solid read.

10-06-2010, 10:08 PM

10-07-2010, 02:30 AM

The burning mockingjay
11-22-2010, 01:23 PM
A few minuets ago I finished The Mother Tongue. It's really good if you like knowing stuff no one cares about, but other then that it really has no use.

11-22-2010, 07:22 PM
I just finished The Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya today and now I'm starting L Change the World.

11-22-2010, 07:30 PM
I just finished Harry Potter 7 (again) before I went to the movie.
Words cannot express my love for Harry Potter. B-]

Now I am reading "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins. Pretty interesting so far.

11-22-2010, 07:35 PM
I think the last book I finished was the Catcher in the Rye, By J. D. Salinger. It's a very interesting book, with an average story I would say, but I enjoyed it. I don't see why Mark Chapman would kill John Lennon because of the book, but sure. Whatever floats his boat.

11-22-2010, 07:56 PM
I just read Lord of the Flies.... It was alright but I wouldn't go as far as to recommended it to anyone.

11-22-2010, 08:00 PM
I just finished Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami, its a trip of a book O.o

11-29-2010, 04:04 PM
The last book I read was Louisiana! by Dana Fuller Ross. I am reading all the books on my shelf that I haven't finished yet. I'm not really fond of this book. Its got Mary Sues and the male equal. It was annoying.

12-06-2010, 01:02 AM
I just finished Battle Royale. What. A. Book!

My god. It was awesome. So, so awesome. It reminded me of The Hunger Games a little bit.

12-09-2010, 12:22 AM
Vampire Hunter D 14: Dark Road Parts 1 and 2 - Hideyuki Kikuchi

Ultor grissom
12-25-2010, 06:01 PM
The last book that I finished was American Terrorist: Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing

I found it to be a well written book written by someone who has clearly researched Tim McVeigh to a degree that most people have not. The book is a product of many interviews with Tim himself and is the only book that Timothy McVeigh approved of himself about himself. This book is not exclusively about the bombing and has a lot of information on Tim's life before the events and shows how he went from highly decorated Gulf war hero to being on trial for terrorism. Anyone who is interested in a detailed biography of McVeigh or in the bombing should not miss this book.

12-25-2010, 06:59 PM
Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince By J.K Rowling

12-31-2010, 12:03 AM

I just finished reading Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi... It was an OK book.. I wanted to finish it soon but since it was kindda boring in some parts I couldn't read it as fast as I wanted.. But it's still a good story to read ^^

02-20-2011, 09:33 PM
The last book I finished was Hallow Fields. I'm looking forward to reading the next volume if I ever get a chance to find it in my school's library.

I finished Narnia. And i'm reading Charlie Bone and the invisible boy lol.

02-28-2011, 11:02 AM
The last book I finished was "Fledgling", by Octavia E. Butler. It's a good book, and I've gone back and re-read it several times, always finding new things and details in the story I missed beforehand. I've got "A Lesson Before Dying" to read next, but I usually finish a book in a day, so I might have to make a library run before long.

02-28-2011, 04:19 PM
The Novel I wrote

02-28-2011, 05:03 PM
ahhh... err... idr.

02-28-2011, 05:45 PM
60 pages to go in Greg Mortenson's Three Cups of Tea... since December.

Also, folk tales from Ireland and Japan, and cheesy American magazine fantasy and horror stories ~1910--1940. And whatever passes under my nose.

I never finish books. My reading time comes in 10-minute chunks. :-/

Percy Jackson and the sea of monsters <--- by Rick Riordon

06-24-2011, 05:47 AM
Of Mice and Men - for school.
I'm surprised I actually liked it, but I think that was down to the film adaptation, I could picture what was going on better.
But it was nice to go into the book in real depth and analyse everything so I hope I did well on the exam.

Dear God I love Velocity. It was such a thriller. The last book I finished was Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev. My all time favorite.

fatal cure - robin cook

07-29-2011, 04:16 AM
Andromeda Klein - Frank Portman

The climax was magnificent and made up for all the occult parts that went over my head, and the subtle linking to King Dork (and implications for King Dork Approximately) gave me a grin.

07-29-2011, 03:30 PM
The Lovely Bones- Alice Sebold.

07-29-2011, 04:50 PM
The Puppet Master by Jan Coffey
This book was amazing! Pure genius and a true masterpiece of literary art imo ^__^

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

08-03-2011, 01:34 AM
Baccano! The Rolling Bootlegs by Ryohgo Narita

My thoughts haven't quite settled down yet, but I think I may end up preferring it to the anime. I can tell that if I didn't know what was going to happen it would have been much more intriguing, and I think the 1930 arc at least works better linear rather than non. It's a real pity 1931 hasn't been translated yet (as far as I know), I want to hear Ladd and Claire being insane. ):

City of Bones- Cassandra Clark.

08-29-2011, 07:32 PM
A children's book teaching kids about dolphins. Before you judge, Judy, I'll have you know I wrote a very lengthy teen romance/paranormal novel that had to do with those energetic blowhole-wearers, so the cute-sy little book at Barnes & Noble caught my eye immediately. :)

And I read it... and LOVED it!:mad: LOL

"Everlasting" from the immortal series. It was sub par. :/

Baccano! 1932 Drugs and the Dominoes

1932 Arc is so much better in the novel than the anime.

only one of the bestest books i've read to date, Heather Brewer's "The Slayer Chronicles: The First Kill". :D

I'd read all of her "The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod" books, and this is an amazing spin-off!! Can't wait for book 2!!

also, in class I'm working on the Scarlet Letter.....

Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys; an interpretation of the mad woman in Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre.

10-08-2011, 06:04 PM
I finished Michel Strogoff by Jules Verne not long ago. He's one of my favourite writers and he's always keeping us in suspense and making us wonder what will happen next.

10-09-2011, 01:59 AM
Mine was Cell by Stephen King. Good book.

10-11-2011, 07:35 PM
Last book I read was Thunder of Heaven by Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall. Before that was the Hunger Games trilogy. All of them were good books. But I liked the Hunger Games trilogy better.
