    I've finished reading World War Z a little while ago.
    The book is really good, I love how the writer "interviewed" the characters like they do with survivors of WWII.

    And I fail to see why the movie even shares the name. The only thing it shares with the book is that it's about zombies. Nothing else. Not the characters, not the story, not the events, nothing. They could've made a masterpiece of a horror movie, but they just made your average zombie movie out of it.

    I am indeed the one with the power of a god.

    Not really reading anything at the mo, since the internet's pretty much killed any motivation I might've had there. Been meaning to read A Confederacy of Dunces, since it'll be nice to distance myself from my usual intake of genre fiction and I have a copy from my last birthday collecting dust.

    Book 5 of the Game of Thrones series. It's pretty good so far.
    Looking forward to the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.



    Will be training up the shiny Abra I have that's named Robin in honor of you. May you R.I.P.

    Cool, so was Ted Cruz.

    I'm reading The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury. I highly recommend Bradbury to anyone who like science fiction and fantasy.

    Currently
    First of the Game of Thrones series, I keep getting told to start on it.

    Afterwards I'll probably read the rest of the series.

    I just started the book Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and I have to say that is book was definitely worth every penny I spent on it. I'm about 80% through the book, and I'm already thinking this might be my third favorite read of 2013, right behind Game of Thrones and Pride and Prejudice.

    The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, although I've made relatively little progress over the past days because of college stuff and whatnot.


    Pokémon Quiz Bowl. It's a thing.

    Every time you have a bad day, just go to Advanced Search, enter "Him in the Court" in the User Name box, and voila.
    I claim Vanillite because it is best Pokémon.

    Oh man, I had to read that for a Russian Lit course way back, brings back some memories. Found out I didn't really care for Crime and Punishment (having expected to enjoy a psychological thriller, if you want to call it one), and The Master became my favorite book of the class. Maybe it was because it was a little bit nutty and sarcastic, or maybe it was because of Behemoth. Though while I did enjoy the character's wit, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed him so much if he didn't last in memory as a feline.

    Behemoth is on the list of literary character names I am saving up for future cats. Gavroche is another.

    Saw Dr. Sleep by Stephen King finally got to my bookstore. Might wait for a price drop, not a big fan of paying 30 for a hardcover.

    I'm trying to get through The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. To be honest it's a pretty dense read and it hasn't really gotten me invested in the story or characters. I suppose it's more about ideals anyways I'm just glad I'm almost through with it.

    Finally finished Cloud Atlas. Holy ****ing crap. That was an AMAZING book. I'll gladly read that again.

    I think I'm gonna start Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude. Beautiful book and I really want to read it again.

    Currently reading Nightwood (Djuna Barnes; hehe, if you don't recognize the title you probably won't recognize the author). I realize I have absolutely no idea how to read short books. My reading is as graceful as natural selection. Out of like a million sentences that I read, barely one of them manages to get through and make some viable offspring. This means books with less physical, word-count-type material in them stump me, because of course with Nightwood, every damn sentence is like a pair of facing mirrors that somehow stimulate both the sensation of being each other and being an object caught between them, while also turning your brain inside out, and I simply can't get the hang of that with my blundering, 20-questions approach to sentences.

    Hmm... I don't give a damn about the male Modernist writers. The ones that spoke to me were Virginia Woolf and Djuna Barnes.

    Going to start reading 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' for an assignment I'm doing on Hunter S. Thompson. Shouldn't take me that long to finish it.

    The Catcher in the Rye for my 11th grade English curriculum. Its much more interesting than some other required reading, and isn't lengthy. I enjoy Holden's character, flawed as he may be.

    To be honest, I haven't read much in the past months, but when marching band season comes to a close I'll have time to finish with Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card and pick up Jonathan Stroud and Rick Riordan's respective new books.
