Doctor Sleep (sequel to The Shining) by Stephen King. Pretty gripping book so far.

I am done with all the Sherlock Holmes books! Finished it on 09/20/13. Won the little competition me and my buddies had. Now waiting for my steak dinner on them. Haha.

Now I am reading Sovereign (The Books of Mortals Book 3) by Ted Dekker, and Tosca Lee.

I love Dekker stuff, and am finding myself really enjoying Tosca Lees writing in these books as well. I think I will check out some of her stand alone stuff soon.

So far the book has really kept my attention. The series has been really good and I cannot wait to see how Lee and Dekker end it.

Currently reading MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood. Oryx & Crake and The Year of the Flood were both amazing and so is this one.

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein because I don't want to watch the movie first.

Gedankenlesen durch Schneckenstreicheln, which is a German book about what animals can teach us humans about physics. Full of pretty dark humor, though, so great book for everyone who knows German and is even slightly interested in science.

Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft for English lessons and I should have chosen a different topic to talk about in school because his style is amazing but also horrible for those who have English as only their second language.

On to the second Game of Thrones book. Read the first one and then watched the TV series and decided to wait until I've read all the books before watching any more so I don't ruin it for myself. Not that the series is bad .

Finished re-reading the "War of the Spider Queen" series last night ... and remembered why I had blocked the ending out of my memory ... killing Pharaun, stupid authors ...

And I was all set to start reading the Rick Riordan "egypt" series, but I was so pissy about them killing off the most interesting wizard character I'd read in a long time, I decided to start the Elminster series since I've never read it.

I've had "The Annotated Elminster" on my shelf for years, just never read it. Now I'm hooked. It's very good so far.

Since I finished reading 'Salem's Lot' by Stephen King, I wanted to try a whole different area of books. So, I've been reading 'On The Rocks' by Elizabeth Morgan since the last 2 days for a change.

Fifty Shades of Grey.

Don't judge me, I've just found something interesting that just happens to be disturbing as fuck.

I realized the other day ... since they're planning to make these into movies ...

If they're NOT porn, what are the movies about???

Also, I'm reading "Divergent", but just started it so I can't really comment yet ...
