Posted by: Ieva Kasku Sep 6 2009, 11:56 AM

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!

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

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 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'm currently reading Great Expectations for class. The last book I completely read was the first Harry Potter book. Love them.

Posted by: Sukuhi Sep 10 2009, 05:57 PM

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.

Posted by: Usagi Zakura Sep 11 2009, 03:36 PM

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

Posted by: Butterfree Farm Sep 11 2009, 04:05 PM

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.

"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.

Posted by: Outsane Sep 11 2009, 07:42 PM

Okay finished Triss about an hour ago and am now reading Salamandastron. I read waaaaay too fast.

Disco Bloodbath - James St. James

Awesome telling of the infamous murder committed by 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

Posted by: Allmah Sep 13 2009, 05:23 PM

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.

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).

Posted by: Suikun Sep 21 2009, 05:17 PM

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.

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 Bell Jar, by Sylivia Plath.

I loved it, yet it can be very dark at times.

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

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

The Bell Jar, by Sylivia Plath.

I've read the first few pages. It was nice.

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...

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)

Posted by: Renxya Oct 5 2009, 03:18 PM

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...

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

I read The Devil Wears Prada. What was the point of Christian in the whole book, really? I haven't watched the movie so I don't know what Andrea and Christian do in it. I laughed at Andrea's misery just like everyone else.

Hm... I think it was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Read it for fun in one day when I went to the beach a couple months back... I need to finish reading The Fountainhead, which was my summer read I only got about halfway through.

The Pokémon Adventures vol. 2 manga, I think. xP.gif Appropriate!

Posted by: ShiroYume Oct 14 2009, 10:01 AM

I'm currently reading 'Thirteen reasons why' by Jay Asher. It's great! We're going to read it in school after the holidays (yes, you read right. In Germany, we've only got summer holidays for six weeks but two weeks 'autumn holidays' after roughly eight weeks of school.). After that, I'm planning to read 'Hexagon' by Marc Kayser, the sequel to the German book 'Trias'. I'm pretty sure neither has been published in other languages...

Before that, I have to admit I read 'Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' by Matthew Stover, since I saw a quote and was instantly in love with the writing style. I'm normally not a fan of science-fiction, but it was still amazing...

Posted by: oddkitty Oct 15 2009, 04:16 AM

I can't remember what, precisely, I just finished, so I'll give the last five, in no particular order, because I read them all around the same time:

Singularity's Ring by Paul Melko, which is a really nifty sci-fi about a particular group of people known as a pod, who operate and are considered to be one person, which is highly normal in their society, while singletons are the technical outcasts

My umpteen-millionth rereading of the Harper Hall books Dragonsong and Dragonsinger, by Anne McCaffrey. I'm actually about to start on the third (also for the umpteen-millionth time). I really need to get new copies of these, or maybe the old hardcover omnibus, just to have it look pretty on my bookshelf, 'cause these poor books are almost literally falling apart, I've read them so much.

Ranger's Apprentice: The Siege of Macindaw, by John Flanagan. I don't care what people say, I may be in my twenties, but a well-written book is always good, even if it's directed for a much younger audience. Besides, most of my favorite series' have female main characters. It's nice to have one that's male.

Shade's Children, by Garth Nix. Another sci-fi, this one post-apocalyptic. It was kind of disturbing in some ways, and very graphic, but I love his writing style. I swear, he could write a textbook about how to draw right angles and I think I'd be enthralled.

And last, but not least, Michelle Sagara's Cast in Silence. And I hate that I have to wait another year before the next installment of that series. It's fantastic, and I think the main character is so wonderfully three-dimensional that she could walk out of the book and pass as a normal human being ... because that's exactly what she is, and it's great.

The last book that I read was Warbreaker, by Brandon Sanderson. It was amazing.

Reading - Eragon

Posted by: Butterfree Farm Oct 17 2009, 09:13 AM

Terrry Pratchett, Unseen Academicals. It was even more disappointing than Making Money - it was cluttered, and who cares about soccer anyway? Even the wizards were nowhere near as funny as usual, and both Ridcully and the former Dean seemed OOC. He's really been off his game since the brilliant Thud!

"Do androids dream of electric sheep?" by Philip K. Dick.

I put off reading it for ages, even though I'm a fan pf PKD, because I thought Blade Runner sucked big time, and it's based on "Sheep?". But it turns out it was a very loose adaptation, and the book is deep, subtle, meaningful, scary, complex, moving and short - everything Blade Runner is not.

It also has a better title.

I <3 PKD. I recommend his books to anyone who likes intelligent, creative scifi with mindbogglingly clever premises. Even if they do tend to be turned into movies like "Total Recall" and "Paycheck".

I just finished reading Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith, which was pretty good despite the plot being rather predictable. However, it wasn't nearly as good as Gorky Park, despite what everyone says.

At the moment I'm reading Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov, and Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, which should last me a little while. They're both rather wordy.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, which should last me a little while.

This is one of my most favorite books in the world. Have you read it before? For me it started off super slow, I had to put it down and pick it back up, but after I picked it up (and forced myself to get through the first fourth of the book or so) it was ah-mazing. So if you haven't read it before, don't be put off by how tedious it seems at first.

I got done a couple of days ago with a book called The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It's a newish series called the Kingkiller Chronicles. It's the first book in that series. It was a very good read, and I don't rate books very lightly.

I am now reading The Malloreon, Volume 1: Guardians of the West, King of the Murgos, Demon Lord of Karanda by David Eddings. I've read The Belgariad and it was an entertaining read, so I'm excited to start this one.

The last book I read was Book of the Dead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.
It was the sequel to Dance of Death, so the storyline wouldn't make much sense if I explained it.
In the book, Special Agent Pendergast is being pursued by his brother, Diogenes who is a brilliant, insane criminal. It's a good book. I recommend reading as many Pendergast novels you can.

A couple, actually, though nothing new.

"Hunted" by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. It's the 5th in the House of Night series. The story isn't actually that great, but I've become attached to the series for some reason.

"The Green Man: Tales from the Mythic Forest." It's a collection of short stories and poems about treemen, fae, shapeshifters, etc, with a very informative introduction. Rather inspiring for my own writing.

"The Surrogate" by Tania Carver.

It's not for the faint hearted, and it can be pretty morbid at times.
(It is based around the hunt for a serial killer, though - so it's understandable.)

'Fallen' by Lauren Kate

It was a very good book in my opinion. The plot was interesting, and the events that happened in the plot would motivate me to continue reading and find out what happens next. Such a shame the next book in the series don't come out until September, because I really want to know what happens next ;-;

I had to read it for school, but it was a pretty good book. The only I did not like about it was the ending, it was just a little unnecessary for a book like that.

i just got done reading the horsemistress saga by toby bishop

its really good about a farm girl who is accidentally bonded to a winged horse when only girls from noble family are bonded. she also has to stop a mad duke who hates women and hates the fact that only women can flay the winged horse. so the duke sets out to try to bring the women especially the farm girl down an crate a line of winged horses for men to fly on.
i think its a really good sires to read

The God Engines by John Scalzi. He's a fantastic SF author, probably my favorite. Anyhow, this book was his attempt to dabble in fantasy. It came out blended strongly with his SF style and content. It was unique and unpredictable and I thouroughly enjoyed it. Great read

The last book I read was for class, and my English class right now is about children's literature, so it's Alice in Wonderland. Before that, it was Peter Pan and Treasure Island. Kind of makes me look a little childish, I guess? But it's been fun.

If assigned reading doesn't count, I don't know what the last book I read was--probably Making Money by Terry Pratchet. Right now I'm reading Dark Banquet: Blood and the Curious Lives of Blood-Feeding Creatures, but I'm only halfway through.

Looks like everyone's reading some awesome books--I read the Artemis Fowl books over Christmas break (stole them from my little sister facepalm.gif ) and The Lovely Bones and The Truth About Forever are some of my all-time favorites. And Haunted was really gross, but I had to finish it because it was assigned reading for me last semester--and it was well-written, so it could have been a lot worse. XD

Posted by: DrMmmPie Mar 19 2010, 10:17 AM

The last book I read is not a real book per se, it's "The World According to Clarkson" by Jeremy Clarkson, it's a collection of columns he wrote while working for the Sunday Times. They ran from 7 January 2001 until 14 December 2003. The topics were varied, each one usually based on either a big or trivial news story from the week. About eight were written as Clarkson travelled around Europe. All of the articles are written with humour but often with some serious undertone.

Orchid by Jayce Castle

I picked this book up out of the blue. It's a paranormal romance. No aliens or ghosts, though the setting is on a futuristic planet called St. Helens. Everyone is born a psion, or otherwise people with psychic powers of some sort. I thought it was pretty good. The book has a different concept on psychics. I find the names of inventions silly though, like coff-tea, jelly-ice, vio-piano (unless these things actually exist irl...consider me ignorant).

my last book was Blaze by stephen king, it was somewhat sad...the main character had really bad luck all his life, but it intriges you how its he going to do with a baby...

I finished two books today and started one up. The ones I finished were Out Of My Mind, and Lord Of The Flies. The one I started was The Prince Of Mist.

Out Of My Mind was, for me, better then The Lord Of The Flies because of the emotions rolled into the plot. I loved it, and nearly cried because of how sad it was.

The Lord Of The Flies was for school and personally, I didn't like it much. It was a little hard to understand in some areas and the plot, I found, was quite boring. I liked the ending, though! xD It made me happy.

The Prince Of Mist, is my favorite book. This is actually the third or fourth time I've re-read it. I love the villan in it, Prince of mist, because of how evil, yet magical he is. Even though I've read that book multiple times, it never ceases amazing me.

Finished The Prince of Mist today for the 3rd, I think(?) time. xD And started it back up again for another round.
The villian, Cain/Prince of Mist, continues to be my favorite novel character.

Sh*t My Dad Says. It was hucking filarious, seriously.

Absolutely, Positively Not. Interesting story, far shorter than books I usually tackle.

Infinite Crisis. Justice League, ftw.

Ship of Magic. Yay Robin Hobb trilogies~

And, though there was probably a lot more, I can't think of them for the life of me noes.gif I read way too fast.

Posted by: Yatamoto Sep 25 2010, 08:16 AM

ok. i read the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud. It's kinda old but a very good read if you like wizards, demons(or more respectively Djinni), and total chaos with a little thrill thrown in. I'm actually on the last one but i can't finish it because its at my friend's house crazy.gif , so i'm currently reading the lord of the rings ^__^

Posted by: Zooooooooo Oct 8 2010, 08:41 PM

The last book I've read was I am America and so Can You by Stephen Colbert. I like Stephen's sense of humor. The "Gay Test" and the Science chapter were some of my favorite sections.

Posted by: Varekai Oct 8 2010, 08:44 PM

The Monstrumologist. <-- An epic book, but I wouldn't suggest it to someone who can't stand gorey stuff.

Aaaand off to read Stephen King's Everything's Eventual and Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Totally excited for the both of them. cat.gif

Posted by: Shubonbon Oct 8 2010, 09:23 PM

The last book I read was Red Scarf Girl by Jiang Ji-Li. It was really great. ^^
I just started on The Hobbit, and that's really good so far too.

Posted by: Varekai Oct 25 2010, 08:45 PM

Finished Everything's Eventual and about halfway through Fahrenheit 451.

I picked up Stephen King's Desperation just the other day and now I can't put it down.

Stephen King's The Mist and R.L. Stine's Fear.
I like me my scary books.

Posted by: CrowFeather Dec 30 2010, 08:11 PM

The Warriors: New Prophecy: Midnight.
I'm only reading it for homework I have on the holidays, and I chose it because I've read it before, and it's smallish.

Just to clarify things here. Yes I have read the series, no I'm not a fan. Yes I know Crowfeather is a WindClan warrior cat, so it may seem that I like the Warrior Cats, when actually CrowFeather is the name of my Sadistic Transformers Character.

Ah, good question! The last book I read was To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. I read it for school, and goodness, I ended up appreciating what it had to say a whole lot more than I thought I would. What a thoughtful book it was.

I'm enjoying reading some of the suggestions people are making here! I'll have to look into some of the titles mentioned.

The Family by Buchi Emecheta. What a disappointment. This, and the two previous books I had to read for this class were exactly alike, and both were tiresome cliches to read through. Standard soap opera bullcrap.

I've read fun books for school, like Ragged Dick and The Narrow Road To the Deep North. Don't tell me you don't know how to assign interesting books for analysis.

Just finished "The Historian" by Elizabeth Kostova.

In the novel, the protagonists span three generations. Each generation has one or more of its own historians. All are looking for the real Dracula (Prince Vlad Tepes) for both professional and personal reasons.

All believe that 'Drakulya' still walks the earth, selecting his acolytes and spreading his evil through bites on the neck, which leave them "undead." The search for the truth takes them to several different countries and to journeys of self-discovery that none anticipated.

I can totally see someone turning this book into an epic movie or mini series!

Its a very thrilling book and vaguely creepy in that it makes you feel that the "Dark Prince" could not only possibly still be alive, but lurking around any corner or looking over your shoulder as you read it.

In that respect, I think its better than most of the other vampire-fiction out there right now (Twilight especially!).
