Saving Eve, by Iris Johansen. Though I've been way too distracted playing Kingdom Hearts to make much progress. (It's a great book though!)

Reread Lost at Sea since I got the colorized anniversary edition a while back. There's not much to it, but it's engaging enough.

I'm not reading it just yet, but because I have all of you to blame for this particular buy...

Ha. I know I'm not the first member here to have read it, but am I a trend starter?

 

Yes. Yes I am.

The universe is a cruel, uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning. It's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually, you'll be dead.

Finished the book I was reading but instead of going on to the logical choice, I instead ended up starting Secrets of a Shoe Addict by Beth Harbison

 

I originally picked it off the shelf because the title amused me and I wanted to tease a friend with it, but then it actually sounded interesting. I'm already over halfway done with it and I started it about 4 hours ago.

We've made too many compromises already, too many retreats. They invade our space, and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds, and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far and no further!

I don't remember who here said it was their favorite book, but I just picked up a used copy of WebMage. I expect to be impressed since an MPer indirectly recommended it.

I'm reading Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia. I watched the movie last year or so and really enjoyed it, but the book is waaaay better. Plus, I'm really excited to get through it and then go find the other 3 books in the quartet, to see where the story goes from the end of book 1.

Finally finished The Shadow Rising!

 

Unsure if I want to go straight into Fires of Heaven next. I'll probably take a break from WoT and read something else.

I don't know why I don't post in this topic, like, ever. Since it was started I've read Red Seas Under Red Skies, The Republic of Thieves, Beauty Sleep, Othello, and, since Kamau posted here about it, I also listened to her copy of the audio book for Divergent.

I've started reading A Dance with Dragons... which is honestly kind of boring so far. I 'unno, I haven't gotten far into it, but I feel like since all of the aforementioned books have much faster pacing (i.e. anything above a crawl) and tend to stick longer with one character, if they switched at all, it's just really, really hard to get back into G.R.R.M.'s books. I might switch over to some light reading in the middle somewhere. My sister did lend me her copy of the Adventure Time Encyclopedia.

Since it seems to be all the rage these days (and since I've been meaning to read it for a while now), I finally started Howl's Moving Castle. Just finished the first chapter, but sadly I'm at work, and my break is about over.

I still enjoy the movie for the music and visuals, but I much prefer the story in the book.

Pretty good, no? I only vaguely remember the movie. Though Sophie for some reason made a lot more sense to me in the book that I remember from the movie.

Huh, I finally get to contribute to this thread.

 

I picked up a collection of poems by Robert Frost. Amazing how disturbing it can be to bother nature.
