    It's like I can't tell if the prose is trying to fight me or fuck me.
    Either way, I'm into it.

    Finally getting around to reading Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, the third and final book in the Hunger Games trilogy.
    It's been forever and a day since I read the previous book though, so I've been feeling just a little bit lost.

    Lord of the Flies for summer reading- that book is the first book to legitamately scare me in a long time.

    I'm currently reading two books... One for pleasure (Passion by Kate Lauren) and one so I don't feel like four years of college are going down the drain (Kicking Away the Ladder: Development Strategy in Historical Perspective by Ha-Joon Chang)

    How the Mind Works by Steven Pinker. So far it's a lot more technical than the other of his books I've read, but the subject matter is fascinating.

    This was a great allegorical book. I read it this year for English and I'm glad I did. [Then we read Maus and I liked that even better... but still, great book.]

    At the moment I'm reading Dave Barry Slept Here by Dave Barry. Hilarious book about the history of the USA, one of the funniest books I've read in a while.

    I'm also (yes, 2 books at once) reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. This is my 4th time reading it, and let me tell you, it's my FAVORITE BOOK EVAR. Anyone reading this post: GO AND READ IT. It's funny, exciting, and a great page turner.

    I just finished reading a small book called Who Moved My Cheese. It was a short book with a metaphor about life. I had to read it for one of my summer classes and have to admit I was a little puzzled at how much I actually liked it. I would suggest it to anyone who is starting to make transitions. Whether it be from high school to college, college to a career, a career to a career or any other combo and finds themselves frustrated.

    I have just started reading the novel Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I have seen the movie, which is unusual because I normally read the books before seeing the movie adaptation but this one just happened to be the other way around. Anyway I am about 1/4 of the way through this book and I can barely put it down it's just so good! Ishiguro's writing style is just incredible, and to be able to come up with an idea as controversial as this one and have is as a huge success is amazing. So I can't wait to read the rest of it!

    I'm a couple chapters into Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. I haven't been reading much at all lately, but hopefully, I'll change that soon.

    The book is good so far. I've read another of her books before, and they seem to be written very well.

    Edit: I finished it. I completely failed at figuring out the mystery, but it was fun figuring out how it all happened. This was an enjoyable book. =)

    Just finished Slaughterhouse Five and now I'm reading The Things They Carried.
    Both are pretty and uninteresting, and I never read. I'm only reading them because it's my summer homework for English :/

    I'm fifty pages away from finishing George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones - after season one of the television series ended, I couldn't bear to wait until March or April of next year to have more! The second, third, and fourth books don't arrive until Tuesday due to the holiday, otherwise I'd quickly finish the first in the morning and get onto the second.

    I'd recommend the series to anyone, fantasy lover or not. The books are well written and has so much more to offer than what you see on the surface of it all.

    Just finished The Dead & the Alone, by Susan Pfeffer (or something). Not bad, but there are heavy religious tones and the ending flat out sucked.

    Back to reading The Final Warning of the Maximum Ride series. I'm basically forcing my way through this. I might as well read the whole thing if I started it. It's not bad though.

    I should pick up City of Fallen Angels soon too.
