So, what books are people reading right now? What are they about? What do you think of them? Would you recommend them?
I tend to read two or three books at a time. Currently, I'm making my way through the following:
I only just started Ishmael, but The Omnivore's Dilemma is very good.
Reading The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
I've been trying to read The Fault in Our Stars but stupid college keeps getting in the way. That's what I get for taking two lit classes at once. That's about all I have going for me right now. Also, I'm working on Born of Fire by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
After taking like, six weeks to read the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, because of uni, I started Maureen Johnson's The Name of the Star yesterday. I gave myself a challenge- for every 10 pages of my psych text that I read, I could read ten pages of the novel. Well, 10 psych pages and 80 novel pages later...
i know the feeling
I just finished Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. It's about the Lithuanians deported during WWII by Stalin- not all that common of a topic. If any of you are into historical fiction, I'd definitely recommend it!
The fault in our starts by this guy called John Green. I don't know if you've heard of him :).
Spoil it for me and I will hunt you down.
does sound somewhat familiar :D
I'm reading Queste by Angie Sage
I just finished Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick (I'm pretty sure that's it, and I'm too lazy to go look). In the spirit of the Nerdfighter Blurbing Book Club, "Morbid, creepy, sick, dark - A fantastic thriller to the end."
Seriously, that book was sick. Sick sick, not like, "oh man that's so cool!" sick. It's basically about this girl with a brain tumor who's hiking in the woods near lake superior and then there's this giant EMP blast that knocks out all electronics around the world and kills a bunch of people (not to mention the nuclear power plants...), and then turns almost everyone who's a teen/older child into this zombie-like creatures called "the Changed" - and holy crap I've never seen a book go that much into detail about the process of ripping someone's innards out and eating them.
Other than that, it was actually a really good book. The detail/writing was superb, like way better than any other book I've read in a while. I'm currently reading Article 15 (another dystopian one), and I can't help but think that it's no where near as perfectly detailed as Ashes.
