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:
  • The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
  • Ishmael by Daniel Quinn

I only just started Ishmael, but The Omnivore's Dilemma is very good.

  • The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
  • The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I'm reading through The Girl... series and so far I love it. The first book, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was a bit more interesting I think but the series is carrying on well.

And Sherlock Holmes, well is there much need to even comment?

Looking For Alaska(: it's pretty good. 

my brother and sister have both recommended Death Note  just haven't gotten around to it.

Just started to re-read Kitty Goes to Washington by Carrie Vaughn

I'm re-reading Inkheart by Cornelia Funke & just started White Cat by Holly Black. c:

My mom read The Omnivore's Dilemma a while back, I do actually want to read that haha. Tell me how you like it!

I'm reading TimeRiders: The Eternal War, by Alex Scarrow. It's the fourth in the series, it's quite good! :D

Dance on my grave by Aidan Chambers. well done.

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

Just finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, and I am still amazed at how good it was. Everybody should read it! (I didn't like the movie that much though..)

Oceans of Blood by Darren Shan :]

I am currently reading I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb and An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.

I'm 150 pages into I Know This Much Is True and it's fairly good, kind of slow. Could be it's 500 or something pages. I literally just started reading An Abundance of Katherines, but I'm sure it'll be amazing.

I read I Know This Much is True last fall, and I enjoyed it. :) It was a little slow at some points, though. And there were awkward parts, but I liked it.

Homer's Iliad. Epic. It's a very intense read though so I'm pondering of reading some lighter material alongside it.
