I started digging into a complete collection of tales and poems by E. A. Poe. Haven't gone far yet, but I already knew the poem The Raven. Also, it seemed like a reasonable next step after reading that Poe had some influence on H. P. Lovecraft.

@R2D21999 isn't that a game series?

Which one? Because I never heard of either as a video game.

@R2D21999 Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a game series named after the book.

I just finished A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. I quite enjoyed it. Not suitable for younger readers, mind.

Neil Gaiman's Coraline and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, apparently.

Coraline isn't such a long little book so I should finish it soon... Alice in Wonderland is kinda thicker and maybe I'll see to it somewhat later.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez - Love in the time of Cholera.

Reading it for my Literature course, it's a good book indeed. Most students don't appreciate it.

The Complete Adventures of Charlie and Mr. Willy Wonka by Roald Dahl. Nearly finished it. Next time I go to the library I wish to find some good book, some fantasy book, a murder-mystery, detective book or a horror-but-not-too-scary book.

I'd so want to find a cool vampire story. What makes me the most sad is that I couldn't find one of my favourite comic artists' works from there although I was sure that I'd seen them there before... Oh, Iznogoud...

Reading The Fallen it might be the last book in The Enemy series but I don't really know.

@R2D21999 You appear to have overtaken me on that series. I have some other recommendations for you (You may have read some of them.):

The Black Tattoo by Sam Enthoven
Libriomancer by Jim C Hines
Framed by Malcolm Rose

And for something rather different, try Grant Naylor's novelisation of Red Dwarf.

@R2D21999 I am actually pretty much out of teen fiction to recommend.

What am I reading right now? Why, Cases in Comparative Politics. It's fantastic.

Also, I don't know the extent of what's been recommended at you, but The Complete Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is always a good way to spend a week.

Of Cases in Comparative Politics? No.
Of Hitchhiker's Guide? I keep planning on it but not finding time.
