Red Country turned out to be as amazing as I'd hoped it would be! Kind of sad that I read it so quickly... now the long wait for whenever his next book comes out. :/

Started reading Mars by Ben Bova... realized that I was actually reading the THIRD book (Mars Life) in his Mars "series," so I abandoned it to read this one!

Just read The Grimm Legacy, which was pretty good, as well as Zombies Don't Cry, which was so-so. Now onto a book called Mockingbird.

I'm currently reading MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza. I've been SO EXCITED for this book and I'm glad that it's AWESOME so far!! Artificial intelligence, military, Bourne Identity-esque... talk about awesome. I hope it stays that way. ;) Too many of my highly anticipated books have been let downs lately. :(

I just finished reading Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire (I know, heavy stuff eh?).

The SW parody webcomic Blue Milk Special is almost finished with Empire and I wanted to brush up before they start making fun of it. :P

Tripsis, have you read the WWW trilogy? Based off of the description of the book you're reading, you'd like it.
I don't know if you've read the Ender's series(at least the goodreads account that I think is yours doesn't have it listed), but it's the same general idea.
An artificial intelligence has formed within the nodes of the internet and learns about humanity from a a young girl who recently had surgery to give her eyesight.

I haven't read it. It sounds pretty cool though! I'll add it to my list and check it out soon. Thanks for the recommendation. :)

Currently re-reading a load of my books, starting with Teen Idol by Meg Cabot. Its mostly so I can decide which ones to give away, to save space, and to make my goodreads more accurate.

so I've finally finished 1Q84, a long slog of a book since its essentially a collection of 3 novels. I think it is best to read it consecutively. I found it exciting at times, a bit dull in others and very repetitive. I know its supposed to be a bit meta but the ending was seriously boring. The climax was probably in the middle and the aftermath of that, which takes up a book and a half, is nowhere near entertaining enough. I liked the characters at least and it wasn't a bad book but the ending let me down.

I'm thinking of doing a book-related new-year's resolution. Something along the lines of "read one book a week" or (preferably, although I don't know if I can pull it off) 2 books a week. There's a lot of books I've been meaning to read lately and haven't gotten around to them, so I'm thinking that setting a goal like this will significantly help trim-down my to-read list.


Reading 1 nonfiction book a week for an entire year is the equivalent of earning a PhD in that field btw

Assuming they are all in the same field of course :P

I struggle with non-fiction. I'm still only 1/5th of the way through Origin of the Species.

That's because nonfiction tends to be fairly dull and tedious. Real life doesn't have near enough dragon attacks or zombie plagues.

I'm the opposite-- I'd rather watch a movie or play video games than read a fiction book. But I really enjoy reading non-fiction if it's something that will directly benefit me. Easy for me to maintain interest when I can imagine the perks of learning whatever I'm reading about

Read Reached by Ally Condie and A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris. Both are pretty good, and I highly recommend the Matched trilogy for people who like dystopian style books.

Just finished all of what I can find of the works of HP Lovecraft. Twas a very good day for such, for as I read the eerie and portentous tales, the wind outside howled and beat against my apartment with an almost malign ferocity.

Finished King Rat and about halfway through The City and the City, both by China Mieville. The latter is pretty odd to read at times, sometimes I'm not sure if he's trying to invoke a translated-conversation feeling or if he's just plain forgetting words. Both are great though.
