I finished Stephen King's Hearts in Atlantis about ninety minutes ago. It was amazing. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys his work. Excellent book.

Just got done reading the entirity of Graphic Classic's Illustrated Lovecraft. It's great -- the illustrations for the poem cycle "The Fungi from Yuggoth" is worth the price alone.

Diggers by Terry Pratchett, the second part of his trilogy about gnomes.
8/10
Not so good as the first book (Truckers), but still a funny and ironic book that keeps Pratchett on top-10 of my favorite authors!

As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner

This was my first time to read Faulkner. I really enjoyed it contrary to what a lot of people say about his writing.

The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

10/10

What a beautiful and engaging masterpiece! Recommended in these times of war, hate and untolerance, to remind us all what is to be a human being and what do we have to change about ourselves to become truly human

Yes! Someone else who's reading CrossGen! I think they are putting out the strongest line of books on the market right now (if not the best individual comics). I get both Forge and Edge and I've not been disappointed with them yet.

This weekend I finished The Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind. It's the second book in the Sword of Truth series, which I think is up to seven books now. Unfortunately it's the last one I'll be reading. I'm not quitting the series because it's bad or anything (although it is almost a carbon copy of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series). It's actually pretty engaging, and has some of the best characters in any fantasy series I've read. I'm quitting because Goodkind is such a blatant misogynist. It got so bad by the end of this book that I almost quit with only 50 pages to go. I mean, I think almost every female character except maybe two has been sexually molested, and most of them have been raped. Also, whenever one of the female characters is conversing with any male character, the female is always wrong and the male always has to correct her. Always. Without fail. Sorry to go on about this but I just want to let people know before they get into the Sword of Truth series. If you can handle all the misogyny though it's a pretty good read.

As far as comics, I also read the first volume of Planetary by Warren Ellis and John Cassaday this weekend. Frankly, I don't see what everyone's going on about. Maybe I heard too much praise about it before I read it, but it didn't wow me like I thought it would. It had some great ideas though. Certainly worth a look.

I've never read any Crossgen before Forge #12. I'm pretty new to comics!!!

I was really impressed with the stories and the artwork was fantastic.

I will pick up Edge #12 when it hits my local comic shop, looking forward to seeing Way of the Rat (heard good things about it).

Armadillo by William Boyd

10/10

A masterpiece, since now one of my all-time favorites. It was beyond all my expectations... definitely the book that defines this moment of my life

Wings by Terry Pratchett

Third (and final) part of the trilogy of the gnomes.

8/10
Better than the second part, but still not at the level of the first (as usual in every trilogy).

Globally, the trilogy would be a 8.5/10. Very good material...

I just finished Stephen King's IT.

It was a good read. A little too long.

After reading all the misplaced sexuality of the children in this book, I can honestly say stephen king is a demented basterd. I still love him though.

I just finished "The Maghi" by John Fawles. Wow! A great book. Very complicated and long, but it was worth reading. I strongly recommend it to anybody who`d like to think after having read the book. Really think.

Finally finished Batman: No Man's Land Volume 4. It has some loose ends, and really ends on a sequel note, but I give it a 9/10 for the whole series. Great story

The Bourne Supremacy, by Ludlum. Pretty good book. Like the Bourne Identity, it starts off really slow but eventually gets better. However, I can't recommend it to people who saw the movie of Bourne Identity but didn't read the book, because they wouldn't understand much of the story. 8/10

Just finished reading "Stephen King's Pet Sematery". I rate it 7/10.

I was extremely freaked out by:

*****Possible, but no big deal, Spoilers*****

When Jud, the neighbour across the road is listening to the footsteps coming closer towards him. They are the footsteps of Louis Creed's dead son, Gage, returned from the grave to commit acts of evil. Freaky shit.

The World According to Garp by John Irving

I'm pretty much at a loss for words at how to describe how wonderful this novel is. All I can say is that I'll definitely be reading it more than once.
