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.
I was in the middle of Paper Towns, but I stopped to read Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I'm done those now, so I'm going back to Paper Towns. After that, I don't know. Surely I'll think of something. I've got a rather extensive and comprehensive list from which to choose.
Beatrice and Virgil by Yann Martel. Absolutely fantastic read. Basically anything by Martel though.
At the moment i re-read the hunger games books.
i also read clockwork angle by Cassandra Clare.
1984, Ya I know everyone hated it in school but it is actually one of the best books I have ever read, just incredible.
I've always wanted to read 1984. I would have read it in grade 11 English, but I chose to take grade 11 English in advance in summer school, so I had to re-read Lord of the Flies.
I had almost the same thing happen to me. I'm almost glad I didn't read it in school because my teachers seemed to beat the joy out of the books we read. But reading it now I am amazed - arguably the best book I have read (and I read quite a lot)
Yeah, everyone I know seemed to dislike the book because they were reading it for school. I think they might of enjoyed it more, had they not been reading it for school.
I'm reading Perfume by Patrick Suskind
I just finished TFiOS last night, and I've just started The Hunger Games today. TFiOS: Loved it. I cried so freakin hard. The Hunger Games: No formulated opinion on this book at this time. It's good I guess but I haven't read far enough to decide if I'm a fan girl or not.
Ha! I'm actually do that, only in reverse. (HG: great and TFIOS: great so far...i don't want to cry though...)
I'm still suffering from post-TFiOS depression, first time I actually cry while reading a book!!
Mrs.Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Very good. And haunting (sort of).
