Ah yes, I love this thread!

I'm currently reading The Happiest Baby on the Block. It's a parenting book.
And a fictional piece Spook Country, by William Gibson...I think. It's interesting.

I just read PC & Kristen Cast's 'Marked' yesterday - was planning on making it last the weekend, but I couldn't sleep last night, so I finished it then.

I'm also reading my french & physics books, because I've got prelims (mocks) this week.

currently reading 'first draft to finished novel' which although i've only read first few pages, is really making alot of sense to me! Its nice to read something from such a published writer that is understandable.

I am reading The Kingdom Keepers Disney After Dark by Ridley Pearson a fantasy thriller for young readers. Mostly interested in it because it takes place at the Magic Kingdom in WDW. Good characterization so far and it doesn't get too bogged down with description...nice pacing.

I finally got Living with the Dead by Kelley Armstrong (one of my 2 favourite authors) from the library! (I don't buy hardcovers, so I wait until I can get it from the library!)

Lord of the Flies. Very interesting book. If anyone gets the chance to read it, I suggest it. Not because it's that fun to read, but just because the theme and message. It is one of those books that will leave you thinking about it, weeks after you've finished.

I've read it, imaginary. Certain parts were disturbing but all in all it is a very powerful and deep book.

Yes, that's exactly what I thought. At first I was surprised it was a required reading at my school, because it was quite graphic, but the whole theme of the book was very intriguing!

Oh, it wasn't even in my school library! I read it during my B.A. I'm surprised as well.

Did you cry when P***y was killed? (Asterisks to avoid spoilers)

I watched the movie recently and didn't like it as much as the book.

Ah. Thanks Emily. I need to be more tech-savvy. So what's the difference between spoiler and hidden?

I'm reading, The Shipping News by Annie Proulx. Love it! She can be a little hard to follow, at times. She is VERY descriptive. But, every now and then, BAMM! A nugget that you just have to sit there and digest.

Just finished 'Hunted', the 5th book in the series and thought it was pretty good. The only thing I don't care for with this series is that you don't get very much in a book. I mean because it all happens over the span of a couple of days I feel like the endings are very abrupt. Other than that I find them very entertaining.

As for my current read, I just started 'The Reader' by Bernhard Schlink. So far so good. I will have to keep you guys posted as to whether it turns out okay, I haven't seen the movie either.

Just hit the bookstore today. I'm about to start on Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand, book number 5 in the Kitty and the Midnight Hour series. Then I'll move on to book six. Smile

I just got City of Glass I am about 150 pages into it. Not bad, sort of reminds me of Harry Potter but still an excellent read.
