The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan, it's awesome so far and I'm only 5 or so chapters in. Also reading Candide for AP Lit.


Yeah, I liked the Lost Hero better than any of the Percy Jackson books.

Speaking of Riordan, over the weekend i read "The Red Pyramid", which is the first book in "The Kane Chronicles". If you liked Percy Jackson, it's a good read.

I read Candide for AP Lit too, last year. Since the narrative pace was so insane it felt like it took no time to read it at all.

Yep, I read that recently too. I feel like I like the whole 'Camp Half-Blood' storyline a little better, though that might just be because I'm used to Riordan and Percy Jackson.

A Game of Thrones, by George RR Martin. Pretty awesome. Much better than the X of X series I had read previously, haha.

Also picked up a very pretty copy of Dune to replace my old paperback ver. and the prequel to the Bartimaeus Trilogy to read.

I've almost finished Fight Club. I think I preferred the movie, but the movie's ending wasn't very good, and I've heard the book's is better.

Then I start Brave New World for my Utopias class, which I've been looking forward to. Probably gonna read some filler before then, though.

^ I read BNW this year for AP Lang. I enjoyed it, quite a few interesting things to consider.

Now reading Slaughterhouse-Five for AP Lang. With such short sentences so far, it's easy to read, but seems choppy since I'm not used to short sentences anymore. Also, I've only read 65 pages and I'm already quite sick of seeing the phrase "or so it goes" at the end of many paragraphs.

I have way too many books on the go!

- The God Delusion - Richard Dawkins
- A Journey - Tony Blair
- A brief history of time - Stephen Hawking

And I just started Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. Cool story so far, I've not seen any of the films yet either.

Finished Angels & Demons AND The Da Vinci Code :thumbsup:

Got to read the 3rd book (can't remember the name) now. I really like these sorts of stories where there's a good grounding in reality, you can really imagine these sorts of things being true (even if they are exaggerated for the story, like I think Wikipedia said the priory of sion don't exist).

Just finished reading The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide which has all 5 books.

Tons of "lolwut" moments. Overall a great series.

Haven't read it yet but its a book I am looking forward to that comes out next month... It looks like a very promising book. Below is what the back of the book says (I got it off the book's facebook page).

When a man wakes up inside a cage that is being carried through
an underground city, he has no idea where he is or what has
happened to him. As Von, a victim of amnesia, is taken to a jail
cell to await his fate amongst elves, humans, dwarfs, gnomes, and
halflings, he is told he is a member of the Royal Guard of Genisus.
It is not long before he is transported to the palace where he
meets an impatient king who eventually returns him to his jail
cell while deciding his destiny.

As Von’s memory slowly returns, he discovers that he is the only
one who can protect Drylor—a world that abandoned him—
from its greatest evil, his own brother. Through his journey to the
truth, Von meets an unlikely group of friends who are willing
to sacrifice everything to help him stop his brother Scarlet
from annihilating the only world they have ever known.

As Von’s past becomes clear and reveals his future, he soon
realizes the only way he can end his brother’s heartless
massacres is to find him and kill him.

I'm trying to finish all of the Brad Thor thrillers. I'm currently on book five: Takedown. A great series of thrillers with some of the most original ideas in the genre. Fantastic action.

After that I have a whole load of stuff to read. I have the Shike Duology by Robert Shea, which is something about ancient Japan and looks pretty good. Then a couple Stephen King books. I'm probably going to read A Game of Thrones first though since the TV series is coming out and I can't believe I haven't read the series yet. Then The Scar by China Meville.

After that I'm gonna read some classic Chinese literature, and then Neal Stephenson, Takeshi Kovacs, and William Gibson cyberpunk.

That should last me to summer break :D

The most recent translation of The Ruba'iyat of Omar Khayyam, though I'm almost done.

Next, I reckon I'll read Metamorphosis by Kafka - unless I have a bad experience with an insect beforehand. :ohnoes:

Started "A Game of Thrones" tonight. The past eleven pages have been good, so I expect the rest of it to be pretty good.

I got like half way through A Game of Thrones. While it was good, I don't like how it doesn't get the reader invested in characters. Since it deals with so many people at once, I don't feel like there's a character or two that I can really get attached to, and I like having that element in a book.

But the TV show just started (I watched the first episode) and that's tempting me into trying to finish it.
