Lets see I'm in the Sherlock Holmes series, re reading The Hobbit, Night Mare (Piers Anthony my personal favorite writer), and Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

School- The Unredeemed Captive by John Putnam Demos.
Personal- All About Love by Stephanie Laurens (Because after reading 500 + pages of sometimes dry history articles I need a little cheesy romance.)

My curiosity is peaked.

I'm currently reading one those Uncle John's Bathroom Reader books.

Working on John Green & David Levithan's Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

It's not bad, but I'm having a bit of trouble identifying with the main characters. Maybe it was just that my expectations were too high, because I've adored John Green's other stuff (like The Fault in Our Stars, An Abundance of Katherines, etc.).

Currently finished up The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon, as well as Le Horla for a class. Plan on starting Don Quixote within the weekend!

I was wondering who this new person was with fantastic taste in books, and then I realized I ALREADY KNOW YOU. <3

You're reading Don Quixote in English, right? I was thinking about attempting that in Spanish, but I'm not sure my language skills are that good...

Not currently reading but finished the series recently - WOOL by Hugh Howey. It's 5 short books that add up to around a full-length novel readable over a weekend. By far the best story I've read in years.

It's entirely self-published. His other books are great as well, especially the Molly Fyde series.

WELL HEY THERE STRANGER, FANCY SEEING YOU HERE <3

Don Quixote is definitely in English, since I haven't taken Spanish since, oh, fifth grade. Le Horla is in French, though, but it's considerably shorter. I say go for it! Nothing like a good book for motivation, hey?

(Meanwhile, I've also downloaded a Neverwhere (by Neil Gaiman) ebook to my phone to read during bus rides. Haven't started it yet, but I'll probably nestle down on Monday and get started. Also digging my way through the Doctor Who/Star Trek comic series, but dunno if comics count here.)

I have the first Hunger Games book in possession but am wondering if I should read it first or watch the movie first?

Last thing I did read (that wasn't Game of Thrones) was Ready Player One - the writing quality actually felt kinda low with slightly contrived characters, but it was a fun read and I would sqee a bit whenever I recognized any of the references. (Not too many unfortunately, they're almost all 80's and I'm more a child of the 90s)

Oh and the author realllllly likes Rush. XD

I'd probably take a shot at Le Horla if I did know French, but alas, I don't. xD I was thinking about holding off on Don Quixote until the spring, if I do decide to read it in Spanish (since I have a Spanish Lit class now, I've got more than enough to read at the moment!).

Definitely read it first. While I feel like the movie was pretty true to the book on the whole, there are some plot differences. Reading first will help you spot these/keep continuity, because I can think of at least one change in the movie that will mess up a pretty important relationship dynamic in the Catching Fire movie.
