Just finished The Hobbit. I thought I read it many years ago, but maybe not (I know I read LotR). And I have to say, they've done some brilliant work on the movies so far, because they're far better than the book. But with great actors and a manuscript that's probably longer and more thought-through than the book itself, it's probably no wonder...

John Green is one of the best authors, in my opinion. I can't wait until the "The Fault in Our Stars" (grammar? lol) movie comes out! I'm gonna be an emotional wreck. "Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher is a really good book that they're apparently making into a movie, though I'm not thrilled that Selena Gomez is going to be in it. :/

Right now I'm reading "Willow" by Julia Hoban, and it's really good.

Working my way through Lord of the Rings again (been 10 years or so since the last time), plus reading "Russian Roulette" by Anthony Horowitz (my light reading book for when I feel the need of reading something I haven't read), and "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman (my current backpack book for long bus rides).

I finished Countdown City: The Last Policeman Part II and then I read Cabot Wright Begins by James Purdy which has to be one of the strangest books I've ever read. So now I started Existence by David Brin.

After I finished Gameboard of the Gods (which was great of course) I read the Dark Swan series--Storm Born, Thorn Queen, Iron Crowned, and Shadow Heir. I'm also almost done with Toxic Faith, about breaking free of toxic religious beliefs. I just finished Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and am now reading Brave New World and am going to start Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, which my friend recommended to me.

I just finished Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks, highly interesting read! Its amazing how music functions in our brain. Now I'm reading Night Train to Lisbon, because one of my lecturers mentioned it at least once a week and I finally found it in our second-hand shop :D

Well since March I didn't finish Gone Girl, in fact I barely started it because I hated both the main characters immediately and my friend said it'd only get worse as the book went along. I read most of Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without a Date, but I got kind of bored with it and didn't completely finish it. Then I read The Darkest Minds and Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, all of The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson, and City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. I've recently checked out It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini and Identical by Ellen Hopkins and should start those, plus I have My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick which I bought. I have a bunch more books on my to-read list though.

Taking back old school and rereading The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks. The last time I read it i was only 12. It is really like reading it for the first time.

I'm addicted to memoirs, so I just finished Strangers by Emma Tennant and My Salinger Year by Joanna Rakoff. Felt like leaving the earth, so I'm reading Chasm City by Alastair Reynolds. I got about 100 pages into it a long time ago, and then something happened and I never finished.

I'm on the second book in the Divergent series.

"Just one day" by Gayle Forman, after finishing "Pay it Forward" (both have been in my 'unread' pile for ages).

I'm desperate for some new books, though. I only have a few series I've barely started, and a few other random books left in my pile of unread books, but they're the kind of books I'm saving for a proper emergency. Most of them are books/series I've started, but not quite managed to follow through because I got distracted by more exciting books. Just relocated my Inkheart books (was almost through the first one, but got distracted), so thought I'd read those if I get the time (before I get a big box of books sent to me).

Which means I'm 1/4 through American Gods (Neil Gaiman), about 1/3 through a re-read of LotR, somewhere in the second book of the Quantum Gravity series (Justina Robson), somewhere in the 4th book of Wheel of Time (re-reading for at least the 5th time but it's been ages since the last time), and maye a few other books/series.

I always have a dozen or more books with bookmarks in them, meaning I'm (re)reading them, but at the moment I only have one book I'm seriously reading: Sleep No More by Aprilynne Pike. It's dark, but I'm enjoying it.

~Since last time~

Read I Am Not Myself These Days by Josh Kilmer-Purcell. It was CRAZY. But good crazy. I'm glad I read it; it was very interesting.

I read The Syrena Legacy by Anna Banks, which were good mermaid books--Of Poseidon, Of Triton, and Of Neptune.

Attempted to read Slammed by Colleen Hoover but that did not work out. Too romancey, and the main dude liked poetry of all things. I can't suspend disbelief that much.

Read The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan. It was okay. Not my favorite book, but not terrible or anything.

Read The Perks of Being a Wallflower in about 12 hours. So good, quick, easy to read. Highly recommended.

Have been attempting to get through The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis for some time now. Very philosophical, like reading a textbook almost. I'm trying to push through it. Also starting The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black, which I've heard is amazing.

Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead comes out on the 29th and I preordered that so I can't wait for that too. ^_^

I'm reading The Unredeemed Captive: A Family Story from Early America by John Demos. In 1703 during Queen Anne's War (War of Spanish Succession), residents of Deerfield, Massachusetts were captured by a French and Iroquois raiding party and marched to Canada where one of their number, the Rev John Williams, was to be ransomed for a Frenchman being held in Boston. That's as far as I got, but it's an interesting story of a little known (at least by me) time in US history.

I got the new Sarah Waters book - The Paying Guests. And I also got Labyrinths of Reason by William Poundstone which looks very interesting.

SOUTH - Ernest Shackleton's autobiographical take on the Endurance expedition. Been looking for it for a while, and finally found it in the secondhand bookstore in town today. I'm running tragically low on books to read though... I may have to swallow my pride soon, and pay full price for new books if I'm not going to run out completely!
