Just started on Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. Pretty funny so far.

I've wanted to read this for such a long time! Would you recommend it?

Definitely! But I have to warn you. In the beginning it is so confusing with all those different Japanese names. You'll probably have to get in to it and then it should be okay. It's brutal but the different characters are so interesting written. They push you literally to the end of the story. Give it a try.

(Don't watch the movie before you read the book! The movie is so lousy...).

I just finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey... It wasn't that great, it has just left me wanting to write fanfiction based on the book.

I'm onto the second book now (Fifty Shades Darker), hopefully they'll be better than the first book (probably not, though).

I don't think the names will be a problem for me. (I watch a ton of anime so I'm familiar with a lot of Japanese names already). Yeah, the movie just looks like it's meant to shock, not tell a true story. But either way, I know I'll eventually watch it.

I assure you, it does not get better. Although I felt the need to get through all three books too, once you've already committed to the first one.

At least they're easy to plow through. No stylistic complexities or dark social themes to slow you down. :lol:

I have a real problem with school books you are required to read. I had to read Animal Farm over the summer, and I mean great allegory and everything, but only in it's time. It seems sort of redundant now because everyone knows that it's representing the communist revolution. What made it even worse is that on the first day of school, the English teacher (who I presume put Animal Farm on the reading list) announced we would be reading it in class. I immediately said that everyone had already read it, but he refuses to listen and now we are picking it apart, paragraph by paragraphs and he's explaining every little metaphor to us. It's so mind numbingly boring, I want to shoot myself when I'm in English now.

So I guess you could say I'm reading Animal Farm, but in reality we are cutting it into tinier and tinier pieces with a scalpel.

Anyway, I couldn't deal with just Animal Farm for my daily dose of literature, so my mom recommended 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' It's really good! It's sort of one of those books where the emphasis is on character development. Nothing much really happens, but you get so caught up in these character's stories you don't want to put it down. I haven't finished it yet, I'm about half way through.

I just started JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy. I know it's entirely different than Harry Potter, but I'm excited none the less. I just love her writing style.
