So, what book did you last read (re-reading also counts)? Was it any good? If so, share with the rest of us!

The last book I read was called Elantris, by Brandon Sanderson; it's a standalone fantasy, and his first published novel. I thought it was excellent, and very original (it kept me guessing most of the time). It dragged in a few places, but overall a very good read, and more people should read it!

Favorite Pokemon



I was reading Animorphs, the second book (The Visitor). The series is really good. I used to be obsessed with it, but now I just read it once in awhile (I finished the whole series a few years ago). cat.gif

Thank you for helping me hatch my eggs. <3

From a Buick 8, by Stephen King. I've got three books started ATM that I alternate between when I want to read something. It's like, a good way to decide what I want to do at night. XD

Right now I'm reading:
Marley and Me by John Grogan
The Tommyknockers by Stephen King
The Stand by Stephen King.

The Combatants



The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. It was my summer reading for school. I did kind of enjoy it, though. It really had some impressive writing in it.

Pokemon I Enjoy



I sort of abandoned it when school started at the end of August, but I'm in the middle of The Sorceress, book 3 of the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. If you're into magic and action, the whole series is fantastic.

My last book I read was The Long Patrol by Brian Jacques. It was one of the Redwall series that I really enjoyed, I'm reading Triss right now and I'm about halfway done.

Team Awesome



I recently started re-reading the Harry Potter series... but so far I have only finished the Chamber of Secrets (book 2 for you ignorant ones) and also a sound-book of Deathly Hollows (yes, 2 and 6.... but it helped me notice a few things about the Chamber of Secrets I hadn't noticed before) but right now I'm reading Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox XD

The Goose Girl, which is awesome feminist fairy-tale YA fantasy, hugely recommended, and the Small Business Guide to E-Marketing, which is more... practical and useful. I've started Enna Burning, which is the sequel to The Goose Girl.

Let Us In



"The Book of Tea" by Kakuzo Okakura.

I've always been interested in Eastern tea procedures and traditions, and I love the many healing benefits a simple cup can provide.

This book also qualifies as the best homework assignment ever since I had to read it for a class.

Disco Bloodbath - James St. James

Awesome telling of the infamous murder committed by Michael Alig during the Club Kid disco drug scene in late 1980s and early 1990s. They made a movie of it called 'Party Monsters' which was just as amazing as the book. eyes.gif

I finished The Princess Bride two days ago, and it was fantastic. As good, if not better, than the movie, but I saw the movie first and it has more sentimental value for me.

My Favorites



Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Gah, stupid Americans and changing its title) was the last one I finished reading. I am in the middle of reading Twilight and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Haven't read them for a while though. The two largest books I've ever read were The Loop and Watership Down (awesome book, you should read it).

I just finished Lord of the Flies last night. Good book, but the way he writes it makes it confusing sometimes, so I have to guess who is saying what. Also, his attempt at slang usage is a bit weird. But sucks to that too.

The end/near end was spoiled for me though, so I managed to catch a lot of the foreshadowing. Amazing how much you don't catch until you know what to expect.
