Starting Harry Potter book 5. It'll be fun because there is a Harry Potter class going on during January. There will be witches and wizards running around campus in the next weeks. This should be good. (no, I'm not joking. Last time, they created their own houses, created their own version of quidditch and had their own quidditch world cup in the gym.)
A reflection is just a distorted reality held by glass and your mind.

I read a lot but I keep discovering excellent authors and books that I'd never noticed until someone recommended them to me. Recently, I have read 'The Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger. Pop-splat, by South African author Ian Martin. It is one of the few books I've ever read that really made me think and completely changed my view of society and how the world operates.

How was The Time Traveler's Wife? I've seen the movie but haven't read the book.

Re-read Watership Down by Richard Adams. Amazing story of a group of rabbits that flee from their endangered warren to a new home, with danger lurking at every turn, lead by a rabbit whose foreshadowing helps to begin the story, and his brother to support him. The movie cuts a lot of important parts, particularly the folk stories that help the readers understand why are rabbits the way they are in terms of behavior and appearance, as well as the little challenges they faced, so I highly recommend reading the book if you haven't already. :D

Read Kafka's The Metamorphosis. It was pretty good. Very short, though, which is sort of good in the context of The Brothers Karamazov, but I still feel like I need something fast-paced to read. I'm thinking about going down to Barnes & Noble to buy the last three novels in the Hannibal series by Thomas Harris, or maybe some Stephen King.

Mattimeo by Brian Jacques. Its in the Redwall Series. I'm half done with it, yay nostalgia.


I've read over half of the redwall books and they are all amazing. Also, right now I am reading The Fire Eternal by Chris D'Lacey

Recently finished reading Blood, Sweat and Tea & More Blood, More Sweat and Another Cup of Tea.

If you've got a kindle then I highly suggest you download these two. The first is free to get on kindle and the sequel only cost me £2. It's about the day to day life of an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) in the London Ambulance Service. It's basically a blog that's been turned into a book. I have to say, it was very gripping and I ended up reading three quarters of the first one in a day! I couldn't put it down. There's some really funny stories and some really heartbreaking ones. It often shows the lunacy of the Government and the daily crap that ambulance men have to deal with. I really loved them, shame there's not any more out yet! (Though he's still writing the blog).

Right now I just started Tony Blair's memoir, A Journey. I only really became politically aware around the time that Tony Blair was leaving office so this is quite an interesting look at recent history and stuff that was going on while I was a kid, too young to care.

No, it's two books.

Blood, Sweat and Tea and the sequel More Blood, More Sweat and Another Cup of Tea.

The first one doesn't seem to be free any more, shame :(

Jane Eyre, Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex, and Gaming Geeks and Fantasy Freaks (Ethan Gilsdorf)

The geek book is pretty interesting, Artemis Fowl is good so far, and Jane Eyre isn't that great...

Broke - by Glen Beck. I'm not too Political of a person, but the book has a very easy to read format, and explains things in a manner very easy to understand. He blasts everyone in the US Government for screwing up the USA. Its very insightful...and scary at the same time.

I highly recommend it.

About 2/3 of the way through Against All Things Ending, by Stephen Donaldson, and Jesus Christ it's intense. It's definitely my favourite book of the Last Chronicles, but the Last Chronicles is probably behind The First Chronicles, but before the Second in terms of quality/enjoyability. Aaaand it's definitely the best fantasy series I've ever read. Pity the final book comes out in like 2013. >_> If the ending of this book is a cliffhanger I think I may just eat my own hat.

Also have a Gaunt's Ghost omnibus to read (it's Warhammer 40k stuff), it's the second one, couldn't get my hands on the first, but apparently they're pretty self-contained so I won't be too left out in terms of events. Aaaaand, finally there's the first book of the Wheel of Time series, The Eye of the World. And after that I'm looking to start reading the Song of Ice and Fire series.

Too much reading. ._.'

Just started The Gift by James Patterson but read the first four books of The House of Night series before then.

The Gift is okay so far and so was Witch and Wizard. I highly recommend the House of Night series though. It's vampyres, but they're the discomforted-by-the-light, blood-sucking, and somewhat-delusional-about-their-powers-at-times type.

Almost half done with Memories of Ice by Steven Erikson after a week of reading it. It's long. But I'm also sick and have no want to read absolutely anything at the moment. Great book though, the whole Malazan series is still my favorite fantasy stuff.

Just under half way through Ben Collins' autobiography. It's amazing the level of detail he's got in it, so far back into his life. It's a pretty good read, first book after a few months of not reading much. Can't wait for the last book of the Inheritance cycle.
