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 reading the Foundation Trilogy by Asimov. Its really cool, I love the concept and Asimov's writing style.
I'm reading The Romanov Prophecy, by Steve Berry, I'm about a third into the book, and I'm loving it :) I can't really say much about it though, because, as I said, I'm only a third through.

I'm currently The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. 

Finally found a book that makes me want to read it slowly.

I am reading The book thief, by Markus Zusak, and the first comic of The Walking Dead :P
I loved The Last Battle! Personally my least favorite was The Horse and His Boy. Not that I don't like it, it's just the least awesome out of all of the awesome books that make up the Narnia series.

Oh man. The Horse and His Boy is my favorite man. I'm only just now reading Dawn Treader though so that could change.

Since it's summer break I've been reading about one book every two days. I'm currently on DragonLight by Donita K. Paul, but I'll probably finish that today. After that I'm going to start reading Redeeming Love (I can't remember the author's name) and I also need to finish The Great Gatsby.

I'm reading Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz, it's the fourth book from the Alex rider series. It's really good but not as good as the previous books. 

I used to read those books when they first came out! My cousin had them all, and he'd give them to me when he'd finished with them. I loved how fast paced they are

yes I do love how fast paced they are, and also I take back what I said about it not being as good as the previous ones cause after I finished it I couldn't stop screaming OH MY GOD!

DFTBA

I am reading too many things at once. I suppose I'll put in that I'm reading Soul by Soul right now however, a book about the South's Antebellum slave trade. I'm reading it for an American history class, and it's not as good as the last one we read. I'm two chapters in and it's not that great so far. I'm ready to get back to fiction. I bought Camus's The Plague so I intend to start that soon!

I'm reading A Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys at the moment, and it's really excellent - it's essentially the story of Bertha Mason from Jane Eyre, which is pretty much one of my all-time favourite books. Oh, and I'm also re-reading the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, sort of in celebration of the film's release next week
