Black Dawn by D.A. Stern

Horror novels haven't really been doing it for me lately, but this one had me by the balls from page one. I'm only 80 pages in so far and I can't wait to see what happens. It's an excellent apocolyptic story in the same vein as The Stand, Swan Song, and Blood Crazy.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Bought no movies for the weekend, so I guess I'll have to spend the upcoming days reading the book, which seemed pretty dull so far. 2 volumes, 900 pages in total.

I've just finished DIARY, by Chuck Palahniuk (his worst book, but not bad compared to some of he stuff out there).

I'm reading LULLABY, by Palahniuk. It's good so far, and it's keeping my interest. It's probably going to come in after INVISIBLE MONTSTERS and FIGHT CLUB, about on par with SURVIVOR, but better than CHOKE and DIARY.

Gangster by Lorenzo Carcaterra.

One of his best (The other being Sleepers)

Night Patrol by Sergey Lukjanenko


It's the first modern Russian book I read. And the first "adult" fantasy book as well.

I got through about 100 pages of Sylvia Plath's Bell Jar, but my interest isn't captivated enough to finish it.

My attention span ain't what it used to be...

Hey, that's the lead singer of Poe's older brother. I remember hearing about that book after her last album came out.

Not yet. to my knowledge its only been released here this week, and I've got a pile of books up to my knee to finish before I buy anything else new. I;ve read a review and it sounds interesting, but its going to have to wait a little while for me

Poe's album "Haunted" is a soundtrack for the book. There are people talking in some of the songs words from the book, familiar "knockings" and some tracks are named like key scenes from the book. There's one called "5 And A Half Minute Hallway", ANaviss here recognizes those words.

Excellent book, amazing soundtrack.


However, I'm 80 pages through "A Game Of Thrones" of the "Song Of Ice And Fire" series. I'm loving it.

I'm reading that too. What part are you on?


As soon as I got to the middle (right when the mystery is beginning to come together) I've been reading over 100 pages a day.

Great book, and some really interesting ideas.


EDIT: Ok, I'm done. A pretty satisfactory ending, if you ask me.

A Home At The End Of The World by Michael Cunningham

I hope I didn't screw that up, as the book isn't right next to me.
