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.


I just got finished reading that for one of my classes, I definitely picked up a whole lot more than I did when I read it in highschool. Which I think was my professor's point in choosing that particular book, since she knew a lot of us would have read it before XD Since you thought it was good already I definitely suggest going back to a few years after you graduate. Now all my recently read books are srs bsns school books, like Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence and The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton. Although I don't particularly go for classics, so to speak, I do now highly recommend Katherine Mansfield's short stories, they're quick to read and extremely interesting, plus they're very good at making you think.

On a more fun note, I did read Grave Peril by Jim Butcher, part of the Dresden Files series. I'd read them all but that one, which considering it's the third out of eleven, led to a bit of confusion, but I'm glad I went back and read it even though I'd pretty much figured out what happened.

Child Thief by Brom. It's a darker version of Peter Pan and I couldn't put it down until I was done.

'The Soul Of All Great Designs' by Neil Bissoondath.

Too much sex, and a pretty weird ending, but alright overall.

Needful Things by Stephen King. One of my favourite by him, next to It that is. This is the 5th time I've read it this year, and it took me two days >.>.... I need to stop reading so fast.

I finished The Child Thief by Brom earlier this evening. It's incredible. It's actually my new favorite book.
It's an adaptation of the classic Peter Pan, and if you thought Peter looked like a freakin' ninja in the Disney movie, your mind will be blown.

However, regardless of how glad I am to have finished that amazing book, I'm sad... because I have nothing else to read at the moment...

It's such an AMAZING book. My favorite book used to be Wicked by Gregory Maguire--this one knocked Elphaba from her Numero Uno pedestal to Numero Dos.

Lastest series I'm working on: Maximum Ride by James Patterson. Highly intertaining. I read Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports, The Final Warning, and MAX: A Maximum Ride Novel in 6 hours. Couldn't put them down once I started. Plus I'm a really fast reader. blush.gif omgyay.gif

Just got done reading 1984 for class. It messed me up in the head and I will never read it again!

On a happier note, I am rereading the Nightlife series by Rob Thurman. If your interested in Action Novel with some monsters in it action. Read them. They are damn good books. The first is Nightlife, the second is Moonshine, the third is Madhouse and the fourth is Deathwish. I dont know if there are going to be more but I hope so.

Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card

I read Ender's Game in high school, so I wanted to read some of the sequels. This one was essentially the same plot, but written from the prospective of Bean, who was...well, Ender's shadow (not literally :P)

Just today I finished "For One More Day" by Mitch Albom.
It had me crying during lunch... >.>;
It's an amazing book. I really don't know what else to say about it, but Albom is just amazing. I think that everyone should read at least one of his works...

The best party ever



Origins by Diana Abu-Jaber.

It was a great book. The ending wasn't great, but it was still a very good read.
