Re-reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, by Susanna Clarke. I forgot quite a bit of this book, so it's like I'm reading it for the first time. I highly recommend it.

I've been re-reading all of the Dresden Files. Ghost Stories is my least favourite, and also the longest one. >_*

I'm re-reading the Ender series. I'm pretty psyched for the movie.

I love that book. So much detail. Is there another one?

Wait, wait. Movie?

I'm currently reading (and rereading and rereading) my friend's creative writing project. I'm a mini-editor, guize.

Currently working through second Wheel of Time book, as per recommended to me. Not bad so far. I like it, but I'm not quite devouring it as I was told I was going to do.

Maybe because I really want to read Insurgent but I'm putting it off until the Great Hunt is finished.

Read a book called Seraphina. It's very nice and surprising take on dragons. ^_^

Also need to buy a copy of Storm of Swords since it looks like this is one series I'm actually collecting. Lol.

The Battle of the Labyrinth. I'm kinda bored of the Percy Jackson series, to be honest, but I figure I should try to finish it D:

Yep. I think they said it will be done by November. They chose Harrison Ford to play Graff which I think is perfect. My hopes are pretty high.

Kicking around the idea of reading Neuromancer by William Gibson. Problem is the jacket has no summary; it's all just how great the book is and how Cyberpunk was coined to describe it. Has anyone read it? Is it any good?

Edit: Also reading "The I Hate to Cook Book". Very funny.

Clarke published a collection of short stories set in the same sort of alternate universe back in 2006; I haven't read it but it's on my list. I enjoyed Strange & Norrell, but the ending felt a little lackluster compared to the rich detail in the rest of the novel.

I'm usually disappointed by endings, though.

Also on my list: The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.
