I'm currently reading (I have been for a while now) the revised edition SAS wilderness survival guide by John Wiseman. It's very informative and encyclopedic, but it doesn't seem to put the priorities of survival in the right order and it gives too much attention to overly complicated contraptions and gizmos that are incredibly impractical in a real life or death survival situation. This book needs much more information about the bare basics of finding/gathering water, shelter, then food. This book tends to compartmentalize everything in a way so that everything is dangerously unrelated. An average person would have almost no clue how to put everything together in this book and actually be able to apply it to a real life situation. For example, if I was ever stranded on a tropical island for some reason, locating water and finding a way to sterilize it would be one of my top priorities, not, say, building a sailboat out of bamboo.

I'm almost done reading Light which is for sure, the last book in the Gone series.

Also we were assigned to read The Book Thief. Its actually not too bad of a read.

Mine was "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind". I liked it.

So I've read some books. I finished The Road which is a pretty good book. I'd say its like Walking Dead but without the zombies.

Currently, I'm reading The Fate of Ten. Which is the fifth(?) book in one of my favorite series, Lorien Legacies.

I just finished The Name Of The Wind which was lovely. Right now I'm not sure what to read next... think I'll continue rereading Joe Abercrombie's books.

I'm heartbroken about the discovery that Robin Hobbs Fool's Quest will only arrive in paperback in July. That's literally a year after the book came out. Biggest cliffhanger as well

Almost finished reading The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume of the The Lord of the Rings novel. I had read it once long ago, too long ago. Worse, it is the first time I read it in original English.

I'm reading Alexei Sayle's autobiography Stalin Ate My Homework again. It's a very amusing account of being raised by communist parents in 1950s and 60s Liverpool.

Kind of reading A Room With a View. Its really boring so far and I can't get a grip on it. I'll probably switch it with something else at the school library.

Silmarillion. Did it on 1 day.

Man, that book is dumb. Don't even answers where the trolls came from.

I'm currently reading Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse. It's very interesting, but I'm still on the beginning.

I'm finishing up The Hunted by Charlie Higson. My sister was bugging me about this series for months so I decided to go through and read it. It's pretty good.
