I'm reading Hairy Pothead and the Marijuana Stone (thanks for the suggestion btw Ceadog) and I must say it's the best book I've read in a while! Holy hell it's great
Sounds great! I'll check it out, I love WWII and lesbians, sounds very interesting :P also, How'd you like Huck Finn? That was a great book! I need to get around to rereading it


I loved Huck Finn actually! All my friends said it would be boring and horrible to read but I read it in two or three days so. :P It's not a classic for nothing, y'know? I like it a lot more than Tom Sawyer, most 'cause I think Tom Sawyer is an insufferable dick haha. Huck Finn is the cool one.

We have a lot of John Grisham novels in my house apparently, so I just finished reading The Firm and now I'm reading The Client. Not the most exciting writing, but pretty cool stories.

Oh I just finished two books. Rather predictable choises I guess but I've been lately consciously going trough some books that are considered to be classics so whatever.

Orwell's Nineteen eightyfour was depressing as hell but very thought-provoking honestly.
And then Wuthering Heights really made an impression on me. I dunno. Though sometimes I found Josephs thick Yorkshire hard to understand but usually I got the meaning mostly. I guess.


Right now, I'm reading Agatha Christie's Poirot books and they are less challenging material or at least less thought-provoking so thats just fine. Though I'm surprised how easy Wuthering Heights especially was to read.

Also, I have read the first 40 pages of the Great Gatsby and I plan to continue anytime soon...
And I'll read the Heart Is a Lonely Hunter when I get a copy (which hopefully should happen soon.)

Though I guess that since school begins next Wednesday I won't be able to read as much as I do now.

I was going to read that, but I couldn't find it so I'm starting Brave New World instead.

I'm attempting to read Game of Thrones because it's the first book I picked up last night. We'll see how this goes.

A Dance with Dragons (5th book of the A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones series).

 

I'm currently half way through the book and loving it, as I loved the other 4 before it.

One Hundred Years of Solicitude is one of my favourite books of all times! I hope you enjoy it too! Let me know what you think of it. :)

I strongly advice you to stick with it! I wasn't too sure if I wanted to read the series or not, but I finally gave in to pear pressure, and for the first part of the first book I wasn't too sure what all the hype was about. Until I did. It had been soooo long before I had read anything half as good. Really great books.

I'm glad. It's really really worth it. And it just keeps getting better and better.

Reading The Golden Compass at the moment. I heard my copy of American Psycho arrived yesterday though, so I don't know if I'll take a break from it to read that!

The Subtle Knife comes after it and it's much better. Northen Lights/Golden Compass is good, but Subtle Knife is better.

I've already read the majority of the book, but I'm reading the re-released version with 200 or so more pages devoted to the show after 2002 when it was originally released.

I just finished the Divergent trilogy. Decent, but trying too hard to be Hunger Games, and the religious overtone was annoyingly obvious.

I just finished the Eargon series, and it is a really good series of books.  I was actually sad when it ended, cause i didn't want it to end.

Reading A Streetcar Named Desire in English atm. It's pretty good, but the way the teacher is teaching it is ehhh at times.
