Anything by Nicholas Sparks and William Shakespear is generally what I like to read, at the moment I am a 1/4 of the way through HP-Order of the Phoenix for the 3rd time.

Lord of the Rings, but I've put that on the side for the time being. Going through a bunch of Poe short stories that I have for a project. I also picked up the first book of The Hunger Games and Water for Elephants thanks to Penny :P I'll get The Game of Thrones later when I'm done with the ones I just got.

Ending of The Hunger Games sucks!! Just saying still wanna see the movies though, lol. Dragons Time by Anne and Todd McCaffrey, but so thing she should have not let her son enter the world of Pern I really dislike these later books she's done with him.

I am reading 2 different books right now they are Blood Noir by Laurell K. hamilton if you like reading about vampires werewolves(NOT anything like twilight promise) and things like that I definitely advise this author and her Anita Blake series just be fair warned they can get a little racy. I am also currently reading the final vampire academy book which is another fantastic series!! I could also recommend anything by jodi picoult she is another amazing author!!



LOOOVE Laurell K. Hamilton...so double posted here, but this series is amazing until towards the last two books she's done. Kind of got of track in them, but she's coming back.

Hmm I'm kinda in a biography phase. Right now I'm reading Mark 947 and Savage Grace. Next up is the Omnivore Dilemma! Then maybe the Talented Mr. Ripley which I've been meaning to read forever!

I recently read the book "Never Let Me Go" which is an absolutely amazing read, so I would definitely recommend it.

Also, if you live in the UK, I can recommend Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class by Owen Jones, because it's an interesting read about the English working class.

I'm reading House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski and The Elephants Vanishes by Haruki Murakami.

Both of them are completely different in plot/writing style/appealling, etc but both of them are quite brilliant and hard to explain.

House of Leaves is... a complex piece that plays with your head and if you aren't too conscious of what are you reading (like I was the first time I read it) you will get caught in the book. A warning, this book will make you paranoid and it really makes you think crazy things.

The Elephant Vanishes is just so beautiful and sad and haunting; the book is made from several shorts stories with that revolves around daily life with a hint of magical realism. My favourite one is called The Silence.

Woohoo Dresden Files http://i51.tinypic.com/5f0n7p.gif them just re-read the first three.

I also recently relistened to HP and I agree missed a few things in the two and three reads I have done on them.

I am currently reading the second in a series by Pip Ballentine (the first pod caster from New Zealand)

I might stop it though to read Masterharper of Pern in honor of Anne McCaffrey

Just finished "Brightly Burning" by Mercedes Lackey, also read almost the entirety of her Valdemar series. Amazing books... I especially like Heralds of Valdemar and Magic's Pawn trilogies.

Dragonriders of Pern are one of my favorite series, as well, and Paolini's Inheritance books are a wonderful, if a bit difficult, read.
