I'm still reading Dresden files (nope, still not finished), now on "Side jobs". I cheated, and first jumped right to the end, because it's got a short story with Murphy after certain things happens in "Changes". Still debating with myself whether to read the rest of the book, or hopping straight to the next. I'll probably finish it, if I know myself right...

I read Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel - another interesting apocalypse story. Then I read Charlie Chaplin - A Brief Life. I think I'm going to stay away from biographies for the moment - too depressing.
Now I'm reading Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman - in 1986 after graduating from college, she and her friend went on a world tour with their first stop Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China (PRC had recently opened to western tourists). So it's interesting to read about 2 people trying to navigate in a culture where they can't communicate, are used to eating western junk food, etc. etc. I like her honest depiction of how entitled they were and that they sometimes behaved badly.

2/25 - I started This House Is Haunted by John Boyne - a Victorian ghost story.

I give Enrique's Journey a 4/5. Still reading Silas Marner. I also read Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata which I'm giving a 5/5.

For world book week at school I'm reading Diary of a wimpy Kid The long Haul. I'm only going to read it at school when we have to read because I din't want to finish the book before the school week is over, but as soon as the week is done I will Read it any time I like.

A Day in the Life of Ancient Rome by Alberto Angela. Like being a tourist in Rome on a day in 115 CE - a great read.

Finished Silas Marner, which I actually liked. Now it's on to The Raven Boys, The Sign of the Four, and Daisy Miller.

Reading The Passage by Justin Cronin. I like it, but am only around 150 pages in. Despite the reviews saying the beginning is a quick read and a page-turner, I'm reading it very slowly. I like it, but it's very descriptive (sometimes I don't like that). He describes a lot, which I know is good, but sometimes I feel like it's too much... But yeah, I like it. I'll probably finish it in a year or so.

1001 Arabian Nights, uncensored

I just finished the first out of 1001 stories told by Scherazade as part of her captivity by King Sharyar. Should she walk away from the deal, it's her life that ends early. Knowing she walks away with her life is the spoiler every knows, but what stories were told will make you ask for more.

Just finished "'Safe' Is Not An Option," a book-length essay on why NASA's near-obsessive fixation on safety above all else is one of the biggest obstacles to human exploration of anything beyond low-Earth orbit... decidedly dry and inaccessible unless you've done quite a bit of background research, but still a very compelling case.

Now starting "The Murder Room," a chronicling of the Vidocq Society, which is a group of 82 of the most brilliant criminological and forensic minds in the world, who meet in an old Victorian dining room in Philadelphia once a month, to take on unsolved cold cases from law enforcement agencies all across the globe. You couldn't make up a more story-worthy organization!

I just finished the book "Ripper" by Stefan Petrucha. It was an excellent book. It takes place in 1890's Manhattan. It's about a young orphan detective who starts to investigate the brutal murders in NYC. They are consistent with the Jack the Ripper murders in Whitechapel, London. He finds a connection between his biological father and Jack the Ripper and begins to investigate. I really enjoyed it.

Just finished Contact, by Carl Sagan, another book that I read when I was way too young to actually get it. Sagan may get mocked mercilessly today (I'm honestly not sure why, when similar figures like Bill Nye and Neil DeGrasse Tyson aren't), but he still managed to make the universe seem even more amazing than science can prove thus far, while never outright contradicting it.

Finally finished Dresden files. Now I'm trying out a YA series, H.I.V.E. which I've not quite made my mind up on yet. I think I have to get through the first, maybe the second to decide.

I am reading The Hunger Games book after I finished watching the first 3 movies. You might say it's silly if I know the story already but I want some comparison, maybe there's something in the book that isn't in the movies and vice-versa? Besides, I am a fan of The Hunger Games series.

I'm reading a double-novel book by Nathanael West. The first novel was Miss Lonelyhearts which was kind of disturbing. The second, which I'm currently reading, is The Day of the Locust. The last one seems a bit more promising, and I think it is quite intriguing how social problems, depravity and violence haven't changed much since the '30s.

Me, me, me against them, me against enemies, me against friends, somehow they all seem to become one, a sea full of sharks and they all smell blood.

Finished up Robert Zubrin's Mars on Earth which was a study of a Mars research station analog in the high Arctic, testing the feasibility of various proposed technologies and strategies for a manned Mars mission. Very interesting, and now I'm obsessed with Mars again (though I'm not sure that ever went away) and I'm sad because I'm out of new reading material on the subject! Any suggestions?

I am about to start "To Kill a Mockingbird". It's been on my to-read list for a long time, but I recently saw a breathtaking theatre adaptation, which made me REALLY want to read it.

Just finished Drive by James Sallis 4/5 (the movie was brilliant so I had to read the book, which turned out to be very good, but not as thrilling as the movie)
