It's been a while since I've read Harry Potters, so I can't say anything for certain. I do believe it is, the way she describes people and places, the structure of her sentences. So yeah I'd say it's quite similar similar.

I'm writing a TV series, yeah. It's a cross between True Detective and Pretty Little Liars.

I just got finished reading Black Iris by Leah Raeder and holy cow was it amazing! Super intense and dark but really good too. A real page-turner.

It's really not worth it. We had to read it in English class.
I suggest you watch the movie, starring Reese Witherspoon... It's much more enjoyable!

Lolita. Oh boy.
But hey, Stanley Kubrick made a movie out of it, so I'll watch it when I'm done.

I have finished two books recently:
The Farm by Tom Rob Smith - amazing book, I've read it in two days.
Elizabeth Is Missing by Emma Healey - devastating look into the mind of Alzheimer's Disease sufferer that holds the key to years old mystery. Really worth the read.

"Patterns from the Golden Age of Rustic Design," by Albert H. Good. Probably would be just as boring for most of you as it sounds, but since I'm both an architecture nerd and a National Park Service nerd, it's great!

Currently reading the first book of The Witcher series, Blood of Elves. It's interesting, but I heard the games are really good, so I wanna play those.

I just completely devoured The Martian by Andy Weir, and the only words I have to sum it up are...

...Holy shit.

It was so good. I only bought this book yesterday after lunch, and I finished it a few minutes ago this evening! My inner nerd is both satisfied and unsatisfied at the same time. I want more, darn it!

I'm excited to go see the movie when it comes out, too! Even though during the entire book, I totally pictured Watney as Chris Pratt. Don't blame me. Smart-assery totally fits Pratt. Also, Star Lord. Sorry, Damon.

A book that I started and then returned to the library a couple of years ago because school got in the way. So I'm going to restart Capital by John Lanchester. Pretty cover too

This blog/story: http://utopiahousechallenge.blogspo...-beginning.html

I've read the updates, which are usually just one picture from the story, but it wasn't enough to appreciate the tale, so I've gone back to the beginning and am almost half-way through. The back story for this is in one type of Sims game and the blog takes place in another and tells how the Sims survive and thrive the challenge they've been handed. It's quite entertaining and the cast of characters are interesting, especially the way they interact. The plot has a few twists along the way and gets a little messy which is fun!

The second book in the Witcher series. I know I'm making slow progress, but I'm not a fast reader.

On my ninth journey through Lord of The Rings ... it was a bargain on Amazon for kindle, I got all three books in this series for 99c (fellowship, two towers and return of the king) about two years ago. Each read shows me something I didn't notice the last time though.
