They used to have something like this in the OOC for music/songs, but you can get a little bit more in-depth when you're talking about reading an entire book as opposed to listening to a 3-minute song. :P

Currently, I'm reading Watchmen; after that, I'll be paging through a poetry anthology I got until the book of freeverse I ordered finally arrives.

I'm switching between a few books, actually. They are:

-Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment

This is pretty good so far, it being his first young adult novel. James Patterson's the name, I think. :o He gets a bit odd when it comes to describing things, but all in all, a good book. I'm about 300 pages through out of 400-something. :D Sometimes his grammar gets a little weird too. That, or I don't know much about grammar. ^^

-Runaway Jury

I've only read two books by John Grisham, if I recall correctly, but I very much enjoy his writing style. And his characters' backstories are esquisite. (sp?) :) I reccommend The Innocent Man and A Time To Kill by him, as well. Great books. A Time To Kill was an award-winning movie, too, if I remember right.

-Johhny Got His Gun

Without a love for Metallica, I dunno how much I'd enjoy this. :P This is the book the song 'One' is based off of. True story, actually. Guy steps on a land-mine and loses his senses. One lyric desribes it well: 'I'm a prisoner inside my own body.' It's some ant-war literature though, so that might change my perspective just a bit. >____>

One day I will finish InkSpell, which of course will be right when the third book in the series is translated into English and on the market.

I have plans to start the Shannara Books that a friend recommended me, so I can't wait.

Other than that, I am reading stuff for the classes I am teaching:
Egyptian Mythology: A guide to the Gods, GOddesses, and Traditions of Ancient Egypt
Tales of Ancient Egypt
How to read Egyptian Hieroglyphs
TimeLife: Ancient Civilizations - Egypt
Various bookmarked webites with Egyptian history, etc from universities and Egyptologists

Right now it's pretty much any science-fiction book on my dresser, although at the moment it's actually my school literature book.

I'm slowly making my way through Stephen Donaldson's books.

I'm reading Invasive Procedures at the moment, by Orson Scott Card.

Books I plan to read:
Unaccompanied Sonata and Other Stories (Orson Scott Card)
Robota (Orson Scott Card)

SL: Max Ride's a good series, I love the comedy most. That, and the idea of kids with wings. =)

Just started reading 'In the Name of the Rose'. As in, five minutes ago ;D I'm afraid I've got a /lot/ of other things that are currently taking up my time... the primal culprit being homework, of course.

Sailing to Sarantium by Guy Gavriel Kay. The reason is, well, hehe... One of my friends told me she never managed to read past the first 100 pages because it took some emperor dude 100 pages to die. I wanted to see how on earth the author managed to pull it off (abeit pulling it off terribly). I've only read a few pages for now. I'll keep y'all updated on how my attention span fares against this, lol.

It reminds me of the Anthony Horowitz books, for some reason. O___o;

I've finished reading Red Dragon, I'm currently reading Hannibal, and shall soon read Hannibal Rising. I also read 1984 recently.

I'm doing literical research for my new book.

1984 was an excellent book, if I recall correctly. Very informational.

If you liked 1984, I would recommend reading Fahrenheit 451.

TR: I have read Fahrenheit 451, but it's not quite the kind of society I'm talking about.

SL: I also found it very informative, I'm re-reading it for a bit more on "utopian" societies.

April 2008 Writer of the Month

I was kinda mixing Fight Club and American Psycho when Watchmen got me hooked. I finished it now (awsome, Rawrz. The ending's great), so I guess I'll continue on those now....

Right now I'm reading Whatever Happened to Janie? by Caroline B. Cooney. I got hooked on the series, and it's pretty darn easy to read.

Pretty much any book I can get my hands on lol

Well so far, I plan to read Brisinger. Then my dad is gonna give me a few more books to read but I don't think that they are PG-13

So, I finished the first Max Ride book. Can't say I was surprised by the ending, although the nice touch with the

other mutants
in the Institute was quite interesting.

I'd have to say Fang was my favorite character. Probably the one I most resemble. :P

Yeah... Angel Experiment was the best of the books, in my opinion. If any comes close, it's School's Out - Forever. I didn't like Saving the World (and Other Extreme Sports), and I almost couldn't finish Final Warning.

Patterson's a great author, don't get me wrong, it's just incredibly slow at points.

True. At some points, it almost seems like the story stalls out. But the basic plotline is what really keeps me enjoying the story.

Quite original. :)

As of now I'm reading The Book of The Dead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. After this I plan on reading Brisingr.
