    I'm reading Adrian Mole: The Wilderness Years. I still don't know what to feel about the title character after the fourth book. Since its written in a diary format, you get every aspect of the character's life. Every time I feel angry at his ignorance I remember a time when he was endearing. Every time I laugh I remember a depressing tale of stress via his constant near-destitution.

    About to start reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower. A friend of mine recommended it and my sister has a copy so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

    Rereading Good Omens right now, which also happens to be one of my favourite books. The writing style and the comedic bits never fail to fill me with joy.

    Reading song lyrics

    Well, it's turn and face the Stars and Stripes, it's fighting back them butterflies
    It's calling in the air, "Alrighty, yes sir, we want the ball"
    And it's knockin' heads and talkin' trash, it's slinging mud and dirt and grass
    It's I got your number, I got your back when your back's against the wall

    You mess with one man, you got us all
    We're the boys of fall

    Currently reading "The Fall of Five" ... awesome book, perhaps one of the best in the series

    The great unknown, Where feet may fail
    And there I find You in the mystery
    In oceans deep, my Faith will stand ..."

    Finished:
    Forest: Awesome to a very subjective degree, but I also feel like I might have a greater understanding if I understand all of the literary references. Thus;

    Reading:
    Watership Down: The first time I read this I dropped out around the part where Hazel was telling the story about El-Ahrairah. I'm using an English assignment as an excuse to attempt to actually finish it.
    Alice in Wonderland: Forcing my mom to read this. For the most part she likes it.
    The Luxe (series): My sister read it a while back, and seeing as Gossip Girl is one of my guilty pleasures...

    I picked up "Perks of Being a Wallflower" from my library alongside a Dummies book on Japanese that I'm yet to start reading, but I probably will soon.

    I finished "The Book Thief" just a little while ago, and bawled my eyes out. That book is insanely depressing.

    Oh, let's see.

    Deeply Odd, by Dean Koontz. I haven't been a serious fan of Koontz for some years now, but from the first novel I'd been charmed by his character Odd Thomas and so continue to keep up with him. Odd began as something universal: just a humble gentlemanly young man out do good with the help of mediocre supernatural abilities (seeing lingering spirits, something called 'psychic magnetism'). He was polite, jocular, well-read and unfailingly honest, and the situations in which he found himself were humanly evil for the most part - a very relatable protagonist in a believable milieu. But as the series progresses, Odd encounters ever more supernatural evil. This wouldn't be so bad for the author of as many best-selling supernatural thrillers as Koontz, except that as Koontz ages he seems to crystallize into a badly written caricature himself: the right wing conservative Christian. Both Odd and his adventures increasingly take on a 'Christian warrior' veneer, where not only is every enemy a Satanist or a scientist but every ally is a summa cum laude graduate of the "Guns 'N God" school of Traditional 'Murrican Values. Half of Odd's narration is concerned with the evils of demon worship and sadoerotic child sacrifice, and the other half is concerned with the evils of gun control and universal healthcare.

    These ideological distractions ruin a good character's memoir in at least two ways. The reader can't be expected to maintain a willing and consistent suspension of disbelief for the supernatural premises when the story repeatedly jerks his attention from the nail-biting evasion of a purgatorial monster hungry for the protagonist's soul to the nail-growing banality of state-church separation policy disputes at the public school level. Affection for the original Odd is all that keeps me interested in this series, because Koontz writes for a progressively narrower audience with each installment; he is at the point now where Odd is preparing for the literal Armageddon, complete with end-of-times rhetoric and Biblical imagery. If the reader is even remotely liberal or non-monotheistic, she will read this book feeling like one of the bad guys.

    Odd himself might still be a salvageable character, though. Koontz frequently makes an effort to remind us that Odd's theology is vague and non-denominational, less about the word of the Lord Jesus Christ than about the word of the late Stormy Llewellyn. And in spite of the author's unconvincing use of Odd as a mouthpiece for conservative proselytizing, Odd is never more genuine a character than when he describes his revulsion towards gun use or self-righteous ideological dogmatism. Regardless of where individuals lie on the religious or political spectra, Odd's humility and humor are traits the whole world could use a little more of. Koontz needs to once again write an Odd for everyone, not just for him.

    Rereading everything in the Percyverse from The Lightning Thief to The Mark of Athena. It's amazing how the characters grow and mature, and how the new ones are handled good for the most part. Get a darned personality Jason and burn in Tartarus Reyna! I tear up everytime I read MoA...

    I'm dying for The House of Hades as well as X/Y, so HoH may keep me alive those final days.

    Also reading the Onslaught Saga of comics from X-Men and stuff. Good read, but do the characters really need to explain everything in their sentences? Seems unnatural.
