If your on a Mark Twain kick try Extracts from Adam and Eve's Diary or A Murder, A Mystery, and A Marriage. In A Murder, A Mystery, and A Marriage he shows his dislike for Jules Verne.

Finished Fifty Shades of Grey last week...it was fun, but I don't know if I care enough to continue the series.

Just started Sarah Waters' Fingersmith last night, and it is lovely.

I just finished The Survival Kit. Was actually better than I expected, but didn't make it to my favorites list.

I've only read A Feast For Crows and now I'm about 60% of the way through A Clash of Kings, but I'm definitely going to get this. I also have cookbooks based on Discworld, Redwall, and Winnie the Pooh.

Finally finished the Shifters series by Rachel Vincent! Loved it!!

Now reading "Eyes Like Stars" by Lisa Mantchev. Good so far, though I'm only 100 pages in.

Just finished John Green's An Abundance of Katherines. Usually realistic fiction isn't my cup of tea, but it's John Green and is therefore amazing. (The Fault In Our Stars needs to come in now fffff.)

Can't decide whether I want to focus more energy on Game of Thrones, Candide, or The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Augh too many books.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King.

It was fantastic.
Really great for studying suspense and tension.

The next book I hope to read is Wrath of Fate, by Captain Robert Brown.
I ordered it a week ago, and it has yet to arrive, so I hope soon.

Re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire, God help me. After watching Season 2 of the show, I couldn't remember all of the details that were different from the book. I also needed some easy reading for the airplane and saw a $5 copy of A Clash of Kings at Target so picked it up. Then I felt compelled to read the next two - though it went pretty fast since I just skipped all the bullshit I wasn't interested in (I'm looking at you Greyjoys). I read a couple of chapters of A Dance with Dragons before I remembered that it was pretty dull.

I liked her in the first three books but dislike what the last book did with both her and Tyrion. Honestly - it really was just one big snore-fest.
