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 am currently reading Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey. It's pretty awesome.
starting up on book three Grave Peril
I just finished Johnatan S. Foer - Extremely loud and incredibly close. I loved it. I am deciding on what to read next and if I should read more of Foers books.
Foer is great, definitely read more. My favorite from him is Everything is Illuminated. It's a bit confusing at first, because it's told in a lot of different parts, by at least 3 different people that I can remember off the top of my head. Once you get the hang of it though, it's very good.
I've actually been really wanting to Everything Is Illuminated! It's been sitting on my list for a couple months.
I just started The Great Gatsby (guess where I'm at timewise in watching the vlogbrothers?). I am so desperately immersed in Fitzgerald's writing. That man forms quite an astounding sentence.
Michio Kaku's Einstien's Cosmos
Many different topics. I really like this book, and anyone who like science (space focused) would love it too!
I just finished Catching Fire by Susanne Collins. I think i am going to hate the world for a while...mostly because I don't have Mockingjay. This is why it took me so damn long to read the book. I kept putting off reaching the ending. I knew she was going to do something like this to me and you know what? She is evil!!!!!! And I love her, but this goes too far.
Have I ever mentioned how much I despise cliffhangers?
(please excuse all my ranting. just chalk it up to PETD...post ending trauma disorder)
it was so awesome and yet not jokes of her to end it like that, i agree.
also, my sister-in-law got into the books now and just started Mockingjay.

Love Sucks by Sage Collins
Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood
Nothing wrong with any of these books--they're lovely in fact-- I just tend to flip between multiple books, always.
