I had to give up on reading Desperation for right now. I like it but I just can't handle it right now with school and work so I wanted to go with something I could breeze through. So I went with this:



So far it's pretty good. I haven't read anything else by the author but his other books sound good, he's got a few vampire and zombie books.

Two drastically different books but both very enjoyable.

Just started reading this... hadn't heard anything about it before picking it up but it sounded cool. I'm only about 40 pages in, but from what I gather from the back of the book it's akin to a modern God of War

Dead Beat by Jim Butcher
After a long hiatus with my favorite wizard (had to get my comic book fix in and finish up some of the Dean Koontz novels I've had laying around forever) I'm back in with book seven and trying to catch up so I can pick up book twelve, Changes.

Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher
Proving to be even better than the last book, especially with Harry hilariously and intensely increasing the f-bomb count.

I'm rereading V by Pynchon and trudging through some fluffernutter on Spinoza that's written like a boring textbook.

Going through midnight's children and trying to browbeat myself into sticking with gravity's rainbow (which I've actually never read) even though I've looked at other pynchon books and have just... Just zero interest in the drug counterculture he threads all over the place. People tell me that's completely off point and I'm jumping at ghosts in the bong smoke, so I'm giving him a second chance with gravity's rainbow. It's supposed to be great.

Also need to try Dune even though I can't handle sci-fi. I just can't.

Dune is great, in every way, not just in typical sci fi ways. Though it is very sci fi. But it's got sandworms. Sandworms!

I'ma probably try my hand at Gravity's Rainbow this summer, though I'm not sure if I wanna start off with it or start off with something like V, which is slightly less imposing. Never read Pynchon before.

I'm rereading Frankenstein for class. A fun time, not my favorite book in the world but I always liked it.

I am currently reading Jesse Ventura's "American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies that the Government Tells Us." I love reading conspiray theories, they make you think what if this could have happened. I don't believe all of them, but some seem possible.

If you have seen the TV show, you know what to expect from the book. If you like to read about conspiracy theories, this is a good book to read.

I just read this and it's one of my favorite books now. I fell in love with Becky Sharp.
