    I've just started reading The Hunger Games. Bought it at Walmart cause it was pretty cheap and I wanted to see what all the hype was so long ago.

    I wanted to read a bit of Yan Martel's "Life of Pi" as I've heard its a pretty darn good read...


    Unfortunately, ended up getting 50 shades of grey for Christmas. I decided to ganter around the pages, reading bits and bobs. I am facepalming repeatedly to myself at the moment. Why did I allow myself to read this garb?

    The Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov. And whaddya know, four Acts of people standing around and talking...

    This is mainly being read for a play that I am assistant directing called Anton in Show Business. It's a pretty funny play, especially if you are into the theater arts or something.

    I'm also going to get my hands on Legend of the Wandering King by Laura Gallego Garcia. It's a book I read in Middle School and had recently just remembered about it. It's also a great read~
     
  5. InkDeath, By Coranella Funke. Great read, BTW. Only thing I do better than annoy is pick out good children's fantasy books.

    The last book I read was The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. It is the third book in the Heros of Olympus series. I found it rather enjoyable and a very engaging read.

    Last book for school was one of my textbooks... Can't remember which haha. College doesn't give me really any exciting reads

    "American Born Chinese" for some class project xD. But if we're talking about for pleasure... it would have to be Caching Fire from like... 10 months ago; I did read Mockingjay as well, but it was so terrible I try to forget that it even exists

    Great way to set up the next book, but it really bugged me.

    This might sound a bit stupid, but the latest book I read was Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. o3o It was for a group project... The book is definitely better than the movie. :P

    I've been wanting to read The Mark of Athena, though. :/

    Everyday by David Levithan. My friend forced me to read it, though it is a really good book, and I don't regret reading it. In fact, I ended up loving it.

    I had finished The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks. Being a big fan of his stuff, naturally, I thought it was lovely.

    Two people who were in love in High School, torn apart from social class. Years later, they meet again for an old friends funeral but the girl has a family. Yes during one short weekend, the love strike up again. <3 I know it's clique and been told so many time but it usually the ending that gets to me. He make such amazing climaxes that have me reading non-stop til it's done.
    I hope people actually read his books more regardless if they're romance. xD But oh well.

    Private Games by James Patterson

    An interesting read and the first Patterson book I read from cover to cover. One thing I couldn't stand though was his choice to change from first person narrative to third person narrative. There was also a lot of stuff I felt was unnecessary.[DOUBLEPOST=1358010212][/DOUBLEPOST]
    I'm making my way through that too. Do you have an abridged (shortened) copy? The copy I have (signet classics unabridged) is almost 1500 pages.

    Michael Vey: Rise of the Elgen, by Richard Paul Evans.

    It's the second book in the Michael Vey series, which is a surprisingly good series about kids with electric powers. I recommend it for fans of series like Percy Jackson or Alex Rider.
