Right now I am reading the "UNBORED" book. Good way to get unbored. :P

Under the Dome, by Stephen King. For those that have seen the TV series based on it, it's tame compared to the book.

Oh yeah, especially the bits where Junior is in the pantry. That was some weird, messed up, stuff.

That's a good series. I read the books all out of order and I still don't know what's going on. I suggest BZRK by him as well, or maybe the Abhorsen trilogy by Garth Nix.
And of course I'd recommend "The Monstrumologist" by Rick Yancey because that's my absolute favorite series of all time (not including The Dark Tower). You'll probably see why it appeals to me so much if you read it.
Or maybe read The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica. I feel like I've recommended that to you before.

As for me, I'm reading another Lovecraft anthology.

Open question: Does anyone own House of Leaves? Is it worth buying?

I've been trying to push myself back to reading lately.

Anyhow; I ordered The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky from Amazon a few days ago.
I'm pretty sure it's arriving at some point tomorrow so I'll get to read it for the weekend.

This past week I read the 2 Starcraft: Ghost novels (Nova and Spectres). Nova is background on the main character and was supposed to be released with the game, while Spectres is essentially a novelization of what was supposed to happen in game.

I haven't gotten around to reading the 3 part graphic novel Ghost Academy though.

Still reading Three Years in Tibet by Ekai Kawaguchi. It's on my tablet and I don't use it often so it's probably going to take me 3 years to finish it.

Well, since my last post I've received and finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
I managed to finish it within one sitting which says a lot about what I thought of it.
I felt like I could relate to Charlie (the main character) while feeling like he was a completely different person.
I wasn't a fan of the ending but the rest of the book made up for that, I guess.
Anyhow; I'm still pretty glad that I read it and I'll watch the movie at the weekend.

I'm not really sure what book to get next which is a frequent problem of mine.
If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations - I'd appreciate it.

I am reading the Dreamer, by Pam Munoz Ryan for my literature class. It's interesting, because it was meant for children, but our professor says it opens our minds and creativity.

Yesterday I finished reading The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody. My mother told me to read it and I was rather expecting some boring, history text book and not the relatively-uninformative book of sarcasm that it was. So that was a pleasant surprise.

I bought and read cover to cover to cover volume one of Saga. It's one of the best comics I've ever read. It's a fantasy-space opera following the story of Marko and Alana, a couple who were once on opposite sides of a galactic war. This has made them, and their newborn daughter, a target for both sides. I was impressed by the fact that I ended up rooting for not only Marko and Alana, but also the two main people who were sent to kill them, as each has a real motivation that makes you want to see them succeed. It's also beautifully drawn and coloured. If you're comfortable with a lot of sex, strong language, and violence, Saga is an essential read for comic fans.

Finished The Art of War by Sun Tzu just a few hours ago. I thought it wouldn't be very interesting at first, but, surprisingly, I devoured it.
