So, I suppose I'm on my way! If you want any reviews of these, just let me know, I'll include quick reviews of books as I finish them, but I just wanted to get this list to catch up.
Ne ne, im considering buying american gods, is it really good?
Yes, it was great. It definitely requires some patience, because of its length and because of the immense amount of allusion going on, but the characters are fascinating and the ending is so immensely satisfying.
Have you read Good Omens?
I haven't, although it's definitely on my "to read" list. I've barely read any Terry Pratchett, and that needs to be remedied!
8. Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice
I had some expectations since I'd already seen the movie but it was pretty good. Think I'll eventually read more of the Vampire Chronicles
5. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
6. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
So ends the Hunger games trilogy for me.
The ending was good, but it came very quickly.
Can't say too much more about it, I dont want to ruin it for anyone!
