I wanna know what books you're reading,
what you think of them so far,
what they're about,
and what books you have planned next!

Gogogo!

I was reading this book called Ishmael that I borrowed from the Library ages ago (oops) and should probably finish it before I move!!

On my to-read list are these!

  • The Celestial Railroad - Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • The Persian Boy - Mary Renault
  • Walden - Thoreau

and others in a more broad mental queue that I will get to eventually.

Ahh, I haven't been doing a lot of reading recently, but I've got a stack of books that I need to get to.

I just finished reading the Divergent series and really enjoyed it a lot. Surprisingly the second book was my favourite, even though trilogies seem to sort've "sag" in the middle books - I actually think Insurgent was my favourite of the three.
I have also read The Cure For Dreaming by Cat Winters a second time around in the past month, and it has easily climbed the ranks into one of my favourite books. Very feminist and awesome and I would recommend it to anyone, honestly. It's got just the right amount of paranormal, but also some romance, and some family drama, and of course, feminism (which is what the book is based around - women's suffrage in the 1900s). So definitely pick it up and read it if you get a chance!

@Myuki
The cure for dreaming sounds soooo good I'm gonna add it to my mental queue!!! And maybe my fore-front to-read list.
Which one is the Divergent series? And whats it about? o:

@shakethesilence
What's Deliver Us From Evil about?
Fitness stuff counts too. Sometimes I've got lifestyle books lying around. I found this old "how to make friends" book for teen girls.... sounds pretty dated right? but with my issues I feel like maybe it could be beneficial to me on some level. xD
What books does your sister have hogged?

The series is another YA dystopian novel series, basically. The world is split into factions and each faction has one trait that they value above all the others (Dauntless is bravery, Abnegation is selflessness, Erudite is intelligence, Amity is peace, and Candor is honesty). The story starts with the main character, Tris, on her "choosing day" which is the day you choose the faction you want to spend the rest of your life in, and it follows her through that. But then she also finds out about a huge political problem and how basically the whole system is wrecked and why she is one of the few people who is able to help fix it. It's really good!

It's a book about a cops journey into the world of exorcism (he somehow gets dragged into it). It's based on the cops true experience,supposedly. I got into it (only read a few chapters) but yeah... xD
I need that book. I need friends xD well, genuine ones at least. I only got a handful of those. The rest will stab you for a penny if it benefits them.
Don't know the names of them :/. Just by what she tells me, they are very good
