I was kinda curious as to what kinds of books (or whatever else, I suppose) you all have been reading. So..

What are you reading right now?
How are you liking it?
What are your thoughts?

I'm about two-thirds through Circle the Soul Softly, by Davida Wills Hurwin. It's the third book of hers that I've read in two days, and I'm really liking it (fairly obviously, I suppose). It's really interesting--it's about a pretty 'normal' girl (whatever that means) named Katie whose father died in the recent past; her mom just got remarried, and the whole family moved, and now Katie is uncovering memories of having been molested as a child, and she has to come to terms with her past and her father's memory.. it's kind of about figuring out who you are, and what makes people who they are, whether an action can define a person.. anyway it's really good. Highly recommended :)

So what words have you been taking in?

I'm currently reading Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, as well as a collection of short stories and such by H.P. Lovecraft. Besides that, I've been brushing up on my Harry Potter, as I'm going to be seeing Deathly Hallows soon. Slaughterhouse Five has been a good read, but it does have a tendency to go off onto tangents without due warning. The stories of Lovecraft are phenomenally well written as well, and in general, the Cthulhu Mythos is intensely intriguing.
I just finished Neuromancer and Slaughterhouse 5. Not two books that normally go together, but still.
Currently reading Boys Don't Cry by Malorie Blackman. Only just started, but it's quite good.
I'm reading The Gypsy Morth, the last book in Terry Brooks Genesis of Shannara trilogy.
I'm roughly about 2/3rds through and I thing it is a really good, it explains the link between Terry Brooks Shannara series and the Word and the Void series
i am re reading jane eyre and loving it even more than the first time.
Good Omens (again), Catcher in the Rye, Les Mis, and Side Jobs (which is a collection of Dresden Files short stories)

Love GO and Side Jobs; haven't gotten far enough into either of the other two to be able to tell how much I enjoy them.
I simultaneously hate and love you.

...That is all.

Of course you do. ^_^
half way through Order of the Phoenix but I'm geing a lot of books for Christmas, like Paper Towns, An Abundance of Katherines, The Outsiders. :3
Now, also Changes.

I'm rereading the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, much better the second time around.. And The Bagombo Snuff Box by Kurt Vonnegut. Which is just a collection of his short stories. I immensely enjoy his short stories, well anything Vonnegut writes really. But I highly recommend it!
Right now I'm halfway through Inkheart, would have finished finished it sooner but my history class has tons of reading. Will get to the rest of the series (bought all 3 books). And will try to get to Tempest by Shakespeare before the holidays.
